Original Gamer: "2011 was a great time to be a gamer, but there were some hiccups here and there. Here’s some of the winners, losers, and assholes that really made 2011 to me."
I agree with the online passes. I don't care about the others.
I'm a loser due to Dragon age 2 :( Funny thing is, I agree :(
Hahahaha that was good.
I'm curious as to why the wii isn't selling for less then one hundred dollars at this point?. Fire sale.
Assholes of 2011 - Platinum Games for taking a game that should've stayed canceled and stripping it of the stealth elements that every game in the franchise is known for so they can make a generic hack & slash (and Kojima Productions/Konami for allowing it).
Wouldn't it be best to wait for the game to be released first before calling them assholes?
metal gear rising is a spinoff franchise. its not the metal gear solid series..its a different approch.. ok i get it MGS have allways been big sealth games but this isnt supposed to be a sealth game, this is a hack n slash action game..it wouldnt really be fun playing as a overpowered super human cyborg and have to sealth when u can throw robots by the size of a skyscraper... MGRR is looking to be a intersting game, fine its not everybodys MGS and fans of the series are bound to be dissapointed and what not.. but if u don't like it don't be such a moody beeing and just don't bother getting the game..this is not MGS its MGR
Just dont buy it, You know its a hack and slash and just be glad the game is coming out. Geez your bitching and yet you didnt even spend any money on the game -_- i hate Other gamers sometimes.
The game looked nothing like a stealth game, plus it looks fine
ElliePage hates anything that used to be exclusive to Sony
didn't capcom announce monster hunter 4 on 3ds? kinda sucks for psp fans....
Funniest article ever I was rolling with laughter when it came to Capcom for being assholes by slapping gamers in the face with RE Mercenaries you can only save once, Releasing Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 like a few months later from Marvel vs Capcom 3 and finally cancelling all mega man games. Yeah I still remember at E3 2011 were people were booing Sony's and AT&T deal. Yeah VAlVE is the best.
lol @ title
Valve is always a winner :)
Capcom = A**holes of this gen. Here are some things they did this gen: Monster Hunter Series:Put Monster Hunter 3 on the Wii even though their fanbase was on playstation. Than they put a Monster Hunter game on the 360 before the PS3. Than when they finally put Monster Hunter on PS3 it just a port of the PSP(so no trophies)plus they do not release it outside of Japan.Lastly Monster Hunter 4 is on the 3DS which is fine but if it is exclusive that is another diss to its fanbase who are mainly on the PSP so they game should atleast make it for the Vita aswell. Megaman: They cancel Megaman Universe and Legends 3. Resident Evil: RE Merc has only one save file, and RE5 online modes taken out and made into day 1 DLC. MvsC and SF4 : Charge people $60 plus overprice DLC than release newer versions for $40 with extra characters,etc. DMC-Reboot These are just a few examples as to why Capcom is by far the biggest A**holes of this gen
Capcom is the worst. They adopted the DLC business model, but took it to a whole new bullsh*t level. DLC for additional SF4 character colors that was already in the disc? DLC for f*cking cheat codes?!?? C'mon man! DLC are not supposed to be for purchasing things that were originally or traditionally part of the game. Ultimate Marvel Vs Capcom 3 released in the save freakin year as the original MVC3??? The original core fan and early buyers of MVC just got f*cked over. I hate Capcom this generation. In my opinion, they are close to being the Activision of the east.
I'll agree on Capcom because they are being asses about stuff despite the fact I'm looking ahead to DmC, RE: ORC and RE Chronicles HD. I agree that Valve and Eidos Montreal are huge Winners. I disagree about DNF and DA II because those games were tons of fun.
I am worried for Capcom's 2012 lineup. DmC remakes will be a sloppy HD upscaling of the originals. DmC has already has a tidal wave of negative press and hate from the gaming community. Asura's wrath looks like it has little replay value. Dragons Dogma doesn't have the rumoured co-op which would have made it a brilliant game. Finally its another co-op resident evil game with multiplayer. Need I say more?
Really agree with the capcom and online pass thing. I`d consider putting square enix on there considering they planned DLC before FFXIII-2 even came out...remember the days when RPG`s were full games?
Remember the days when games IN GENERAL were full games?
Remember the days when you could let friends borrow games and they could play the FULL game?
Remember the days when your family member who lives in the same household you live in could play the same full game? This isn't even a case of borrowing. That's how bad it is now.
i don't agree with Sony being an asshole. c'mon they gave us free games. CAPCOM IS THE REAL ASSHOLE HERE. cancelled Megaman, effing Ultimate MvC. i bet they are going to release Ultimate Street fighter vs Tekken as well. i also want to add Namco. they decided to give out free contents for Dark Souls on Xbox. completely forgetting about the ps3 owners who btw have been fans of the series since Demon's Souls. sure, they gave out Free Dynamic Themes After 2 MONTHS. to make it worse its only for Japan. smh -,- not to mention. Localization of Tales of Vesperia. WE WANT IT. and *cough Tales of Xillia when are we getting it.
Gamers complaining about Sony's implementation of an arbitration agreement in their TOS simply shows their ignorance. Every single one of us has signed/agreed to one multiple times in our lifespan. Have a credit card? You've signed an agreement. Bought insurance? You've signed an agreement. Class action lawsuits are expensive and oftentimes frivolous which is why companies take steps to avoid them in favor of other means of settlement. Sony is not the first and in fact it is sort of surprising the clause wasn't in their original TOS.
The addition of "no class action lawsuit" is the true dick move of Sony's. EA did it too. Even with all the legal agreements we blindly agree too, the no class action lawsuit is a big deal.
Guitar Hero and Band Hero aren't completely dead, just on a break. Which is what they desperately needed. It's giving Rock Band a chance to thrive and hopefully when they come back, they'll be in demand again. Hopefully anyway.
