Activision's Walking Dead: Survival Instinct won't be good

Drew Bergmark of Original-Gamer.com: Gathering all the information together that I presented, I believe that, as published by Activision, Terminal Reality’s The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct won’t surpass the average Metacritic score of Ghostbusters: The Video Game. (Activision, Dev, PS3, Sony Pictures, Terminal Reality, Wii U, Xbox 360)

I'll reserve my opinions about this game til after I play it. I really don't take game journalist too serious.
DBergmark  +   858d ago
If you consider this game journalism, then that's understandable why you don't. This is just analyzing the information that we have already about the product and the product's developer. Personally, I'm not a fan of connecting the term journalism to the game media as 90% of reporting done online has been given by publishers. Journalism takes research on the topic while spinning it either in the author's or publication's political views as this article just took information and reported on it with an idea of what the impending results will be.

They aren't analyzing anything because there is nothing to analyze.. They are making assumptions on a game that's not even close to release yet.
DBergmark  +   858d ago
@Belking The game is coming out on March 26th in the Americas & 29th in Europe. That's almost two months as I explained multiple times in the article. You might want to read it if you disagree with my statements.

No...

I just wrote "nicholascage.jpg".

-_-

You're not on the internet much, are you?

When people write either .jpg or .gif at the end of a phrase, it is suggested what picture they are talking about. Mine was obviously the "YOU DON'T SAY!" picture. Sorry for any confusion. Not sure why everyone hates Nic Cage.

You think

It's Activision, they should of given the WD rights to someone else so they could of made a good third person, shooter open world survival game.

We haven't played it yet, I do remember people saying the Telltale version wouldn't be good. Good thing I have Gamefly and if I really enjoy it I'll buy it.
BanBrother  +   858d ago
Yes Jek, but have you seen the game-play video? Granted it was old footage, but they recently released screenshots, which still made the game look worse than the original Killzone on PS2.

They keep telling us that the game is 'much better now', or some bullcrap along those lines. They then give us screenshots, most likely touched up as well, that still look crap.

They are in damage control, because they know that the internet KNOWS this game is going to suck harder than Paris Hilton. They have not even bothered to show new game-play to disprove everyones claims. Plus, they have a bad track record, plus it is releasing in march, plus Activision.......it was doomed from the start. I am a disappointed TWD fan.

Well I will probably rent it, I haven't really paid much attention to the videos at this point though.

I will probably check out some reviews as well, but I wont bash it right now. That is the only point I was trying to make, if you think something is bad or something will suck before going into it, you'll probably find reasons to hate it.

i believe they're not showing much of it till practically close (or very close) to release, coz they either have:

(a) little confidence in it, and afraid that showing more about it will have negative reaction from gamers affecting it's sales when released, OR

(b) they want to give enough "gap" from currently released games with zombies in 'em so as not to be overshadowed by the other games -- noting that Activision says that this is not a "first-person shooter" but a "first-person survival horror" game, which is a lot like how ZombiU is being marketed. and not trying to compare the two, although ZombiU had mixed reaction from reviewers, most gamers who played it love it, despite its downsides. OR

(c) much like [b] above, they don't want it to be compared and overshadowed to Telltale's The Walking Dead which turned out to be good that it ended up being GOTY.
