Dead Space story producer Chuck Beaver has gotten in touch directly with Gameranx to clarify his criticism towards Gears of War.
there's really nothing to clarify if all he did was say that he loves the franchise anyways. he didn't take back what he said about the poor writing. lol.
"Asked whether story can ruin a good game, Beaver told EA's blog: 'Story can only ruin a game for those people who care about story, so it's a conditional answer. For instance, Gears of War. It contains atrocious, offensive violations of story basics. Yet it doesn't seem to ruin it for many, many people. It's literally the worst writing in games, but seems to have no ill effects.'" It's funny how the headline of the previous article completely bypassed the point he was making.
He shouldn't have said anything. This is how wars get started.
Someone in the top office at EA must have got in the arse to change his statement ASAP. EA is dealing with enough Flak right now to have this Guy add more hate than they are already getting. So now he's sanging a new tune and how much of a fan. Yeah sure
Funny that he's the one criticizing Gears for story. I mean I like the DS series a lot, but the writing isn't really spectacular.
