G4 X-Play's Matt Keil Debunks Mass Effect's Disappointing Preview

Matt Keil, a writer and producer of G4 X-Play, has posted in NeoGAF forums in response to Destructoid's PAX 2007 preview that "Mass Effect is disappointing, but nice looking". Matt has this to say:

Do not believe this preview. I had the first hour of the game played in front of me, and none of Destructoid's criticisms are valid. This is either truly awful taste or a pathetic attempt to get more hits. Possibly both.

Mass Effect has the most incredible facial animation of any game ever (at the time I saw it, anyway...Heavenly Sword tops it in cutscenes, IMO), and the voice acting is perfectly fine. The beginning of the game is all space navy "Sir, we have visual" shit, anyway. It's obviously not going to be Gone With The Wind.

There are plenty of things to worry about with Mass Effect without making up shit about the presentation. This preview is simply not describing the game I saw.

The story is too old to be commented.

As per N4G's submission guidelines:

"Also internet forums and message boards do not normally qualify as a reliable source. However linking to screenshots and videos posted on forums is ok. You can also link to forum posts if the post is made by a developer or other industry professionals."

Forum posts are okay ONLY IF they are made by known developers and industry professionals. Matt Keil is an INDUSTRY PROFESSIONAL. He's not just a grip boy or runner -- he is a WRITER-PRODUCER at G4 X-Play.

Edit: Why disagree with N4G's Guidelines??

G4 X-Play rarely produces any video reviews for Xbox 360 games, and close to never for Windows games.

Most of G4's reviews are for Sony and Nintendo's games.

Destructoid made it obvious that they were being paid by Sony. Doh! >_<

The title of this comment says it all. Unfortunately I could not just add a reply without writing a comment in this field. OK here it goes: OMG that is the dumbest comment I´ve ever heard in my entire life and I hear it often fanboy or no fanboy.

lol has this dumb motherfauker ever heard of an opinion? And how the hell do you debunk a preview lmfao?

the_round_peg3437d ago

they carry weight when they come from an industry professionals.

Unlike you or me or Destroidroid, Mr. Matt Keil works in the gaming industry and has first-hand knowledge and experience in the industry. He has professional credentials and background to back up his opinions.

You do not. Destroidroid does not.

Professional credentials in the relevant industry. Professional credentials. Credentials. Credibility. That's what makes his opinions more important than yours or Destroidroid.

Demon19803437d ago (Edited 3437d ago )

What the hell is your point? You cannot debunk a fauking rumor and everyone is entitled to their opinion. And what makes him an "expert"?

B3YOND3437d ago (Edited 3437d ago )

Other than his professional credentials in the video gaming industry, not much.

Nobody will listen to G4 X-Play's anyways we all know they are all a bunch of stupid xbots, im sure some of them post on n4flamers around here too or just lurk around you never know.

Actually, the very fine G4 X-Play's host Morgan Webb is a self-professed Playstation fangirl.

Of course, unlike you obsessive fangirls out there, she has a life and a career.

On topic though, this is maybe the third story I have seen about Destructoid doing something weird to get hits, and I for one believe it. It could very well be the Destructoid writer's opinion, but an opinion like that that is that out of whack deserves to be kept to yourself. People who read the Destructoid preview probably made the same face as they would have if a friend told them they liked furries.
