I JUST KEEP BURNNING LOVE!
goodlyoak posted...ReceiverxWisdom posted...All the good reviews in the world wouldn't differ my mind on not buying this. Brutally honest.
I tend to dismiss GI reviews but it does seem like antis are rather harsh on this one in particular. I've never really agreed with GI on reviews, but the people complaining of them being being paid off are most likely disgruntled fans.
(Now playing Dead Island, Vanquish, and PSASBR Beta)
Just got my game informer digital , it says all boss fights except the final one suck
umm how do you say "all boss fights but the last oine sucks.. yet give a game a 9/10?) that sounds more like a 8/10
My first time and day in Jeuno and the first 6 hours of it is spent staring at a chocobo's butt.
Game Informer is owned by Gamestop, you can always bet on them accepting bribes and wanting to move inventory. So I don't consider them reliable. I am optimistic for this game though.
Capcom didn't have to give them any money to misleadingly give a high score (even when the reviewer admits there's a lot of flaws). It's a major title, so Gamestop has to carry it. And since they're the ones buying the games from the warehouse, they need to SELL them. So they artificially hype EVERY game they carry.
The only games that don't get inflated reviews from GI and Gamestop in general are ones they either don't carry or only carry a few of (niche titles).
Contrary to popular belief, opinions can be, and often are, wrong.
OP? What other reviews did GI cover in this issue? Mind sharing?
Guardians of Middle Earth 7.5
Ni No Kuni 7
Skyrim Dragonborn 8.5
Skulls of the Shogun 8.5
Ratchet and Clank Full Frontal7.5
DmC will be the best game ever!
It's hilarious and tastefully done.

pencoin posted...That's not really guts. He gives whatever kind of score will give the most page hits which of course rather from game to game. For instance he gave Vanquish a 5/10 and MW3 a 9.5/10. It stirs up a bit of controversy which get him views and page-hits on the site he writes for which gets him money at the end of the day.
That post was awesome, did you make that? Can I steal it (You know I will)?
Honestly, a review is just one man's (or woman's) opinion, and should be taken as such. Professional reviewers obviously play a lot more games, so it should stand to reason their views should carry some insight, but at the end of the day, people are going to like what they like.
Personally, I know Joe Juba is fairly credible in good technical-action games, although I don't know that he ever quite *loved* DMC 1 and 3 the same way the rest of us did. I definitely think it's odd he would openly claim most of the bosses suck, though, and still give the game a 9. Still, his opinion should hold some weight; just don't view his (or anyone else's) review as a be-all, end-all score of the game.
pencoin posted...I can't wait for Jimbo Sterling's review, that guy's such a shill it's unreal. I believe he already stated the game had better gameplay than the originals based of the demos. Massive NT Fanboy.
There are certain games you should know to not take Sterling's opinions seriously on. The Dynasty Warriors games, for instance, are some of his favorite games and many get absurdly high scores. This is another similar situation. He is a massive Ninja Theory fanboy. He even wrote a scathing article discussing how the gaming community at large was essentially wrong for not buying hundreds of thousands of copies of Enslaved, despite it being a very mediocre title.
His mind was already made up on DmC the second he found out who was developing it. Add to this, his incessant need to stir up controversy, and the notable backlash with this title, and his plan was pretty much laid out for him.
And Resident Evil 6 is an objectively awkward product. Deal with it.
