Why? Cos it still isn't finished? Cos it's crap? Cos it's crap and isn't finished?

This game will be amazing. Perfection takes time.

I'm a huge film noir fan and this game will be my dream game for that genre.

hikayu2998d ago

I smell some kind of gt5 joke in there somewhere . Hmm , perfection ya say ?

rezzah2998d ago

Nothing can acheive perfection but atleast they can make it the best of its genre, or atleast try to. I'm sure GT5 will acheive that goal.

Well Team Bondi hasn't really released anything I can think of. Brendan McNamara's work hasn't been very special, either.

Darkfiber2998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

How do you know "this game will be amazing"? How do you have any idea whatsoever? Cause Rockstar's name is loosely attached to it?

I hate people who can't judge a game for what it actually is, but only for what name or developer is attached to it. There is nothing showing that this game will be any good. As far as I know, there is not even any gameplay footage whatsoever. From screenshots it looks to be a Mafia ripoff of some kind, and it'll probably just turn out to be that.

God, fanboys annoy the crap out of me. They are so adamant to defend something they have absolutely no clue about. Ignorant morons.

I think its probably because the game has some very unique ideas and mechanics that are taking longer to pin down then say the basics of a shooter. reading the preview gave the impression that they were implementing some pretty deep and original ideas. Either way I cant wait to give it a go

Ya this game will probably be incredibly great. Red Dead showed us that Rockstar can make franchises other than GTA just as perfect as their cash cow GTA does.

Duke Nukem???

Well people will be buying stupid, stinky, repetitive COD and Halo over the next few months, then we’ve got GOOD games such as Vanquish and so on, it’s just not the right time to get a high selling release for the game, I’m sure they’ll be doing some balancing as well.

ddurand12998d ago (Edited 2998d ago )

vanquish LOL. thats a bargain bin title for everyone I know. The demo was fun, but the lack of multiplayer kills it. hrs of gaming vs dollars spent there are many more games coming out that deserve 60$ over vanquish.

And it probably has little to do with halo and COD. You say that like there arent a ton of big titles coming out in 2011. (there are)

Megaton2998d ago

When's the last time they even released a trailer? You've gotta build it up with press in the months before release. It obviously wasn't coming any time in the near future.

jay22998d ago

There was a behind closed doors, eyes on event at E3.

ddurand12998d ago

and unless youre in that 2% of gamers that saw it, thats almost useless.

Acquiescence2998d ago

than this year could handle.

Seriously, it's gonna be like playing L.A. Confidential; a dream come true!

Shaymin2998d ago

I hope the $50 million they wasted on this game was worth it
