Fox is reviewing games? There is something morally wrong here.

N4g_null3154d ago

I know right yets its a good review, just because they show tons of game play. I mean back in the day the media was just that pictures and videos no one cared about if they liked the game or not because we all knew from the arcades that we are totally different people.

Yet They have a winner here, some more challenge and even a show down mode where you have one on one then let the fencers at it with true strikes.

Ubi leaves the door open for some one to one up them but they made this game part of my look out for new ip that could shine list. I'm liking what they came up with and I don't know many people who could beat the wii sport sword fighting game either, i did and boy was it fun. I haven't beat this yet simply because I got mad work to do.

All American news outlets are terrible. Just watch the BBC or some other European news instead. They're infinitely more likely to cover what's actually going on in the world, as opposed to the endless 'human interest' stories that I have to endure whenever I watch the nightly news.

silkrevolver3154d ago

I wouldn’t trust Fox News with any sort of information... let alone how they’d enjoy a game...

LoydX-mas3154d ago

since Fox has more viewers than CNN and MSNBC combined.

I like to think they have that many viewers because people can't turn away from the train wreck that is Fox News. They know they shouldn't watch but it is fascinating.

Myze3154d ago

In all fairness, there's no such thing as a good news channel, barring local news, depending on where you live. Fox, MSNBC (easily the worst), CNN, etc. are all bad in their own way.

As for Fox News reviewing games, that's no worse than when MSNBC, NY Times, Playboy, etc. review games, they all claim to have video game reviewers, yet they all can't seem to manage more than a paragraph or anything with any form of substance (at least this review is a video, showing a tad more effort).

silkrevolver3154d ago

I agree that America has no good news source, but I’d personally say Fox News is a little bit worse than MSNBC, but that’s not saying much, because when you are spewing out BS, shades of gray doesn’t really matter.

chaostheory3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

Fox pushes towards a more conservative slant but they really aren't any worse than CNN they just lean in a different direction so if you disagree with them you see them as worse. Now MSNBC, on the other hand, they intentionally mislead their viewers in an attempt to control the stock market in their favor. You may disagree with Fox's spin but they are not even close to as bad as MSNBC (although how they advertise themselves as the Fair and Balanced channel makes them come off as arrogant pricks, not to mention hypocrites).

Edit: I apoligize my data was a little off it was CNBC that tried to mislead the stock market, still its MSNBC's affiliate so I wasn't to far off.

silkrevolver3154d ago

The thing is: I disagree with both. I’m a liberal independent, so I suppose there are more things I’ll side with MSNBC with, but their tactics are despicable. Both they and Fox News aren’t attempting to inform, they are attempting to persuade via fallacies, lies and fear mongering. At that point, you can decide which is the lesser of two evils, and I believe that MSNBC is less brutal than Fox News. Fox News is attempting to instill a sense of fear in their viewers for political gain. They want the left to fail at all cost only so they can succeed, but the problem with that is: The left has a little more power in office than the right at the moment. Essentially, they want the Democrats to fail, which means Obama will fail which means America will fail... they fail to see that the last part is good for nobody. I simply hate party politics, which is all Fox News and MSNBC are. But this is a videogame website, so let’s stick to videogame chit-chat from now on. No more politics on N4G for me. (=

Darkstorn3154d ago

MSNBC is more openly biased, though. Fox News always insists it's "on the side of the American people," despite its very low per capita viewership. In contrast, Keith Olbermann simply does not come to the same nonsensical conclusions as Glenn Beck or Bill O' Reilly. At least MSNBC's anchors admit that they are center-left.

I don't watch (American) TV news at all anymore because the content is so sparse these days; it's almost unwatchable.

Wile3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

LOL @ "liberal independent".

@ below:

there is nothing 'independent' in the liberal/socialist doctrine.
BIG Gov't runs/controls/taxes everything.

Darkstorn3154d ago

Why the skepticism?
I for one am disappointed that the Democratic Party has lurched so far to the right since the '80s; I'd almost call myself a 'liberal independent.'

silkrevolver3154d ago

I can’t feel strongly about some views but not be affiliated with a party? And because I’m liberal that automatically makes me a Socialist? And I’m not a fan of Big Government either, but it’s better than big business. It’s essentially one or the other. And I said I was done with politics on here and I lied, so sorry for that.

Wile3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

...big gov't is better than big biz? really? Name one part of gov't (other than military) that gets anything right? Your statement confirms my socialist suspicions. I can name a tons of separate large companies that are successful and fair to their workforce. You say you don't favor socialism but favor big gov't over free market? I'd just don't think you know what socialism means: Here ya go: (take close note to the last line in the definition.

so·cial·ism (sō'shə-lĭz'əm) n. 1. Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.


silkrevolver3153d ago

Well I said I was done with politics on here, so I’m not going to continue to argue with you about this anymore. All I have to say is you are being a prick, and are completely single minded.

Wile3153d ago calling is a single minded behavior. Have a good week.

Darkstorn3153d ago

When the market is allowed to run free, it stifles competition and investment. It is also unsustainable. You saw that leading into the Great Depression and our recent financial crisis.
The key is balanced regulation. Europe has it, the U.S. doesn't.

Wile3153d ago (Edited 3153d ago )

I understand and have heard that argument before but Greece is one of the shining examples for the results of that approach. BTW I like the avatar. Just dusted off my mindcrime album.

tunaks13154d ago

got the game,
amazing, playing on hard mode and not rushing through the game,
its definitely an 8.6-9 game. Definitely a buy.

NaotaChannel3154d ago

For the people saying that FOX is a train wreck - mind giving some specific examples?

If you can't - I'm going to have to assume you're lying.


You'll probably do better at watching youtube for Fox's f*ckery...

MexicanAppleThief3154d ago

Yep just go search Glenn Beck or the O' Reilly guy.

DelbertGrady3154d ago

Here's an example:

another one:

and yet another one:

I'm not american and for me it's very hard to understand how anyone can take this channel and it's news broadcasts seriously.

Seferoth753154d ago

I sit next to a girl at work who loves Fox news and all their shows. I have shown her video after video of Fox mistakes and she always simply dismisses them with some lame excuse. It's really sad.

chaostheory3154d ago (Edited 3154d ago )

Its simple really Fox caters to the conservative view of the world, which does put it far into the minority of the networks, meaning it is one of the only major networks to do so. As of such there is very little competition. They're not really much worse then the liberal networks spin wise, they just lack direct competition in the form of another major conservative slanted news network so they don't need to trim the chaff. This leads to stupid stuff being able to air but them not loosing viewers because the other news networks make them feel like their views are being attacked.

Just Cause 2 is on the PC too.
Second time they've done that. :|

chaostheory3154d ago

They probably just review for the consoles which are the more mainstream gaming mediums. Or maybe because they don't play the PC version they don't comment on it because it may be different.
