From what I remember, he was just quickly trying to clarify something. To me it seemed like a move done in stress, which is understandable as that would have been a very stressful time for Xbox representatives. It wasn't done in anger or to piss anyone off.
He wasn't the one that cancelled the game, and it's possible he only found out about it when we did. And even if he did know, there's not a lot he could have done.
I don't think many people would have complained about Titanfall and Star Wars, if they had more content.
Star Wars had a handful of maps at launch with barely any variety in how you could play it. Compared to Battlefront 2, it had very limited gameplay.
Titanfall was critically very well received, but an online only game needs to do more than it did. It needed extra things like clan systems, cosmetic Titan customization, and for all new maps to be added for free as soo...
Their choices for 10-7 were rather... interesting.
I think Ratchet and Clank should probably get a bit more recognition. I personally preferred it over Uncharted 4, it should have been considered for the action game category.
As expected, raging PS4 fans complaining that their favourite game didn't win. Like it's some sort of crime that they like something else more.
If it makes you feel better, Uncharted 4 currently has around 30 more awards than Overwatch.
Overwatch came second in the user polls... So it's not that big a deal.
Nothing wrong with an online only game winning game of the year. I don't think Overwatch is anywhere near good enough for it, but I wouldn't complain if Bad Company 2 won game of the year in 2010 for example (Sure it had a mediocre campaign, but that gets forgotten way faster than its online.)
Yeah, as has been said for the past 6-7 years. Even though all those points are debatable, at best.
It's weird how much flack it gets now. Throughout 2010 just about everyone showered the game with praise. Even though it released in January, it still kept in people's minds to win a ton of game of the year awards. It wasn't an easy year to win either. Red Dead Redemption won a few more... but RDR would also have knocked out just about any other PS3/360 year. Sta...
It was very quick to find games after a few months of updates. There probably aren't many people playing it today though, since the launch was so bad. They did give a free Halo 3 ODST to everyone affected, so that kinda made up for it.
If they really want to make it better, they should cut it down to only one playlist to unite the playerbase. And Xbox should advertise that update on the xbox home menu.
It's a shame the Souls series didn't get more game of he year awards.
Demon's Souls suffered because it wasn't launched worldwide at release, and everyone was fixated on Uncharted 2 and MW2. Demon's Souls was certainly as good as those two, if not better as it was the first Souls game. The multiplayer was so innovative at the time.
The first Dark Souls was a masterpiece. It got 5 game of the year awards... Skyrim got over 200. It deser...
@UCForce If you put your opinion on the internet, you usually do so because you want people to see it. Some people will disagree, and some will argue against your opinion. When you make something like a game of the year list, there will always be people that disagree. Don't like it? Don't go on the internet.
I think Uncharted 4 is highly overrated. In this case many people will disagree, some will agree. That's how it works.
I disagree with the grenade indicator part is all. Just because I agree with one point, doesn't mean I agree with everything in the article. A grenade indicator wouldn't be good for gears, but the cover system is good. Come on, 2+2=4.
You've just confirmed you haven't played Gears 4 much, if at all. If you tap the button once while pushing forward, you simply go forward out of cover. If you hold it down, you go out of cover sprinting. If you introduce a doub...
Marketing only sells the game, it doesn't keep people playing it.
A lot of people like that system. Destiny probably has the highest retained online playerbase of this generation, it has to do something good to keep people playing.
Like I said, mechanically they're similar. But Gears 4 feels much more fluid and snappy. This article even mentions this as something other games should learn from. The fact that you think otherwise tells me you haven't played gears 4.
The grenade icons are needed in Uncharted, because you couldn't see the grenade without it. The grenades are clearly visible in Gears, so no icon is needed. In fact I'd prefer they didn't add unnecessary rubbish on he scre...
Too light feeling for me, felt like an arcade game. And because of it's arcade nature it got repetitive very quickly. If you take out all the fancy sliding and slow motion, it'd be somewhat bland. Those tricks didn't impress me for long.
I can certainly see why some would prefer the overall combat of Vanquish, it's much faster. But Gears still has better pure cover based shooting. I wasn't saying it's the best third person shooting action game... I...
Uncharted's cover system is pretty ordinary. The gameplay of Uncharted is good for the COMBINATION of cover based shooting, platforming and puzzles. If you look at any of those aspects individually, they don't look so great on their own. Take out the platforming, and suddenly Uncharted's combat looks very plain. But obviously it goes very well with the platforming.
I love Mass Effect, but even Mass Effect 3's cover system was a tad clunky at times. It was th...
I've played a lot of third person shooters... and even Gears 1 has a better cover system than many released today. What do you mean they offer you little to go by? Do you want someone to explain every tiny piece of detail about the cover system to you or something? A comparison with another TPS?
Gears 4 easily has the best pure third person shooter combat around. No contest.
Yes, because user reviews are a great way to measure a game's quality.
Good. It deserves more awards this year, it's certainly up there with the likes of Uncharted 4 and Overwatch.
If it isn't worse than RE4... it's going to be legendary.
