The top 5 epic failures of March 2012 thus far

2012 has already seen its fair share of highs and lows, and we're less than three months in. But what have been the highlights from so many? Here's five of the most notable. (Doom 4, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City, Street Fighter x Tekken, Xbox 360)

The doom and gloom of Game sticks out, at least our side of the puddle, and the subsequent bargains. I've already spent more at Game/GS on games this past week than I have since they've been opened (not counting hardware purchases).

March has been pretty eventful but there's still two weeks left of it. I think the whole Mass Effect 3 ending thing has been the most striking.

Maybe Gamers are tired of FPS,multiplayer game now possibly reason for all the doom an gloom article lately.

MASS EFFECT 3 could be the pebble get the ball rolling for NEW IP'S outside of FPS

Seem like everyone so distracted by ME3 ending to care about the stunt Crapcom pulled. I have seen more post are surrounding the me3 ending than Crapcom on-disk overprice dlc.

Yeah because fighting games have the same mass appeal as Msss Effect... Use your head.

The Games TM Magazine review was based upon four hours of gameplay and the reviewer hadn't even played the Co-Op or Versus Multiplayer Components. I've written a Blog Post on the topic of the review:

so then it's just a 4/10 experience for someone who doesn't want to play Co-cop or multplayer?

Yeah, I buy games with a major COOP slant purely for the SP. If you didn't want a COOP game, it's kinda not a game for you.

It's like playing Borderlands or L4D by yourself, incredibly boring.

Seems like it may be a backlash against Capcom. I haven't been the biggest fan of the game pre-release, but any reviewer can't really put up an honest review without playing the main meat of the game. Which is the multiplayer stuff.
Frankfurt  +   1419d ago
A 4/10 SP game doesn't become a 7 or 8/10 game just because of CO-OP or multiplayer. Halo is amazing in CO-OP. Gears too. L4D too. But they aren't 4/10 or 5/10 in single player.

You have no argument.

What about the Mass Effect 3 DLC?
vortis  +   1419d ago
EA's PR are great at their job...

Notice how not one journalist followed up on the DLC debacle for ME3 but instead moved all their attention over to the ending? Ridiculous.
TekoIie  +   1419d ago
People would rather buy the dlc and enjoy it than complain, this was proven when MW2 sold dlc at a higher price than its competitors and everyone just bought it without complaining.

1. Mass Effect 3

I think we should stop using the word epic.
NeXXXuS  +   1419d ago
I agree with this statement.
QuodEratDemonstrandm  +   1419d ago
A truly epic sentiment. XB
QuantumWake  +   1419d ago
You know what's an epic fail? Mass Effect 3's Collectors Edition case. It is almost impossible to remove the damn discs from the case. I feel like every time I try and take it out, the discs are going to snap in half. Nice one EA/BioWare.

Now just wait and see someone try to defend some of these things...
CRASHBASHUK  +   1419d ago
omg feels like me and loads of people are repeating our selfs that website is a 360 website nothing to do with ps3 why publish it in the ps3 news bit?
ShadesMoolah  +   1419d ago
Oh right. Mass Effect 3 on Ps3 had its own endings did it? Sfxtekken dlc is xbox exclusive is it. A nd Raccoon city is a different game on the Ps3? The article is obviously not applicable to ps3 at all then.

CRASHBASHUK  +   1419d ago

Msxbox seems to be more a ps3 site then a xbox site lately.
Omnislash  +   1419d ago
you know whats worse about the DLC Capcom issue? They want other players to post people that hacked the game so they can have them banned....

Crapcom has the most failures this gen
Tapioca Cold  +   1419d ago
The only "failure" is this arrogant idiot's article. Who is this moron to judge what is "fail" and what is not?

The guy doesn't even have the balls to write his/her real name: News Bot? WTF is that? That my friends is a sissy. And no one "fails" more than they do.

Thanks for the expertise (sarcasm)

Tell me you guys out there can see through all of these crap articles.

Such anger?

Are you saying the article is wrong? Is your distaste for this article implying that what's contained within is wrong?

If so, why not elaborate? You calling some random stranger an idiot because of their opinion is just as bad as- actually, it's worse than- someone not posting their name. Oh, wait, I'm certain your real name isn't "Tapioca Cold," is it? So exactly where do you get off on calling someone else a coward by not using their real name?

If you've got some valid reasons for why the author is wrong, by all means, state them. Otherwise, you just come off as being a reactionary fool who's all too quick to defend things that shouldn't be defended.
