What a doormat attitude that is. Why shouldn't someone complain when a product isn't up to snuff? Are you nuts? You don't have to blindly accept any old thing that's thrown your way, and you'd do Bungie a disservice if you did. They need constructive feedback, they'd welcome it, it's how they'll be able to improve things and make their games better. #15.1

You shouldn't be thanking them for what should be a bare minimum requirement. It says a lot that standards are so low for these kinds of launches that someone would actively thank a developer for doing what they're supposed to be doing anyway.
I don't thank manufacturers when my products work...they're supposed to work. If they don't, that's a problem that needs to be rectified and complaints need to be made.
Only gamers feel the need to excuse stuff... #17

"Look at his iconic grey shirt, and his iconic middle finger. And lest we forget his iconic beard. ICONIC!! Everything we make is iconic!!! Pre-order the Iconic Icon DLC today!!! We're not desperate!" - Ubisoft Press Release. #32

Pretty good article...and I do like that the writer was self-aware enough to realise that this sort of trip for journos is a pretty big problem. And it is.

EA won't pressure people into being nice about their game, but they will make sure to treat the writers well, take them on an expensive trip and fill their heads with positive and fun memories. How can that positivity NOT affect the coverage of the game that least on a subconscious level?

A big fat cheque was probably the primary motivator. #8

What a pointless article...
"This game still looks great today....provided you change and upgrade pretty much everything about it". Yeah, not quite the same as something from the 16 bit era still looking appealing today, is it?
Vanilla Doom 3 was a technical showcase at the time of release, but it dated rather quickly due to an ugly art style. #4

We're not all you. All the games you list other than Gears for a few years will exist on the new consoles. Better versions of them too, that don't run like a$$.
I have no doubt if you were around back then, you'd have said "I'm just fine with my VHS" while DVD led to a massively improved home experience for movies.
Being a Luddite must absolutely suck. #10.1

Welcome to nearly every console launch...ever. PS2 struggled for games, so did 360 and PS3 until the transition away from the previous gen was finally made. It happens every single time, and every single time, people keep forgetting and keep acting surprised that the best game for a console is not out in it's 1st year.
That never happens....if it did, then your console was a failure because games are supposed to get better as the devs get used to things and figure out how to squ... #11

I personally don't think they have the best exclusives, and frankly, they have a lot to prove on that front after last generation where the exclusives were few and far between in the last few years, while Sony kept pumping them out on PS3 all the way to the "end" (by that, I mean the PS3 isn't dead yet).
Of the exclusives we know about so far, Quantum Break holds the most interest to me by far. Hopefully, like Alan Wake, it'll end up on the PC at some point beca... #7

Games nowadays often have corporate tie ins and sponsorships, product placement, excessive DLC and micro-transactions, special editions etc.
Their earning potential is more than enough, even in the AAA space. The problem in the games industry is the increasing staleness of AAA titles as they all look to be the same as the big hitters who have carved out their own identity over the years - Call of Duty, GTA etc. - rather than take a risk and come up with something new or fresh.

Main menu and Snap? If not Snap for the two squares, then at least allowing you to select which window you want if you have a couple of apps open. #20

The base game is already better than Watch Dogs. An even nicer looking version of it will just establish that even more. #8.1

Was going to mock your post, then saw your username and realised it'd be pointless, you've already made yourself look ridiculous as it is. #10.1

Rockstar are always tight lipped. The game isn't due till October, there's plenty of time for new footage to be released.
Why do some gamers have severe problems with waiting for stuff to be released? There's excitement, then there's obsessive. Chill out. #13

A tiny bit of success goes to a devs head and they start annoying the people who got them that success by refusing to honour what they amazingly dumb of them. When you've relied on a small number of passionate fans, it's not a good idea to screw those fans over. #5

The depth of field that mod introduced is near broken from the footage I've seen. Way too aggressive, a person would have to have severe vision problems for things to blur out the way they do when it's on.
And no, it's never going to reach E3 2012 levels of quality, those assets are not in the game as released. A lot less texture quality, a lot less detail, the world is less populated and the game does not have as realistic a look and solidity as that E3 demo did. Even... #2

It's never too late...but they haven't dropped the price enough as far as I'm concerned. At the same price as the PS4, it still struggles to be good value due to it's inferior spec. Ditching Kinect and making it fully optional was a great start. Now drop the price to £299 and reflect the true value of the console in the face of it's technically superior competition. Then you'll see them sell, and then you'll start clawing back your disenchanted audience th... #23

It's hard NOT to be cynical when games companies keep on giving people great reasons to BE cynical. Shoddy DRM that stops legit customers from playing their purchased games, on-disc DLC which represents the worst of the industry in trying to fleece people into paying for content that's already on the disc, the blatant misrepresentation of games via "vertical slices of gameplay" and bullshot screenshots used to promote the game being taken from super-sampled PC versions to m... #2

Where was he with GTA 5, or Halo 4, or Call of Duty whatever number we're on now, Or Resident Evil 6, or Watch Dogs or any other big budget AAA title that has been released over the last 10 years?
Yes, the amount spent on Destiny seems huge, but that includes all marketing costs (which most other companies never reveal) and developing an ambitious IP. Big budget games aren't cheap, and haven't been for years. Why does the author only want Destiny to fail? Why not the ot... #107

I don't get why people get so angry about timed exclusive DLC...what, you can't wait to pay more for content that should really have been in the game from the start anyway? Why?
Stop falling over yourselves in a quest to be ripped off the quickest. Most DLC is utter rubbish anyway. If you feel so strongly, just don't get the's the only message that publishers and developers understand. Communicate this to them calmly, tell them why you're not buying t... #81
