"HAHA, Public enemy of butthurt fannies. "


Yep. Just as Nintendo always do. Doing things their own way. It's clear that they would rather use Nintendo Directs to talk to their fans rather than get continually slated at E3.

I think it's safe to say that they've went into siege mode. #15

It's not as if he's ever going to admit that the ending itself was a complete mess.

Nobody ever slates their own work if it sells; even if it only sold because of the two previous games. Also, the DLC looked like they were ripped from the game and packaged for DLC. #6

Hold on a second. In the second paragraph of the article; it said it cost 40 million Euros altogether, including marketing and packaging etc. Converted to dollars; that would be $52,202,283.85. #9.4

I would be most interested to see the real numbers more than anything else. A game that may have taken 5-6 years in development with a large team, facial capture, voice acting, scripting, DLC, PS Move support etc; it seems to be far too fantastic to be true.

Taking into account that the game and the marketing only cost 40 million euros, converting that to dollars would be $52,248,202,83 (fluctuating currency rates aside) selling the title at $60 each and dividing the total co... #21.2

People don't care about these type of weighty issues. People would rather buy jingoistic video games like Call of Duty or Battlefield rather than a game like Spec Ops:The Line which forced the player to confront the choices that they had made and the sales numbers indicate that. #12

Yeah. The video game industry is pretty damn screwed at this point and I sincerely doubt that any of the consoles will be picked up at an accelerated rate like the good ol' days. #6.1

The good ol' days are gone and they have been for a long time. #4

@MoveTheGlow "Nintendo (a company who designed a console so risk-averse that even its title is nigh indistinguishable from its money-printing predecessor) failed to make a console distinguishable from one released in 2006."

Hold on a second here. Companies market brands that sell. If Nintendo are so "risk-averse" for naming their console after their previous iteration; what exactly does that make Sony and Microsoft? Think about it for a moment. The Playsta... #1.3.2

Haha. This has been an entertaining blog. It attracted the responses that I thought it would. #8

It may look good but does it play better than Fifa? If it can beat Fifa in the graphics department; then I would like to see some gameplay footage to show that it can beat Fifa in the gameplay department. #27

I chose the synthesis ending because it was the only option to save everybody and stop the cycle. I was aware of the trans-humanist theme running through it but I chose it anyway because the other options were just as terrible. You choose the blue ending and you take on the role of the benevolent dictator. You choose the red ending and you destroy the Geth if you haven't already destroyed them.

Ultimately, all the endings are evil. #2.1

I'm glad that the IT isn't true. It was probably the biggest rationalisation in gaming history. Don't get me wrong. I think that the IT was more coherent than the original endings but that's because the original endings were so badly written; even an extended cut couldn't salvage it because the premise of the entire situation is so weak.

I just found it sadder that a lot of the ME fanbase would've preferred if what took place was just a prolonged hall... #1.2.1

No they didn't. Gamers caused the decline of traditional games. Their lust for realistic, violent, "mature" video games caused the decline of traditional games. Nintendo are merely trying to survive since the "hardcore" ditched them in the Gamecube era. #8.1

You know I would just love it if there wasn't so many stupid things like this happening in gaming. We're only in March and already there have been so many controversial events that have happened. Let me make a small list.

1. Rayman Legends being postponed on the Wii U despite being finished.
2. Pachter's 240 fps comment.
3. The Aliens: Colonial Marines debacle.
4. Microtransactions in all EA games.
5. Nader saying that video gam... #7

Uh. Just a small problem with your metaphor. Comparing Sony to the Wizard of Oz isn't the most flattering comparison because near the end of the film; the Wizard of Oz is exposed as an old man with no real magical powers. #4.2

Art is a tricky thing to define. For me personally; the audience is just as important as the artist. The MOMA in New York City recently had 14 video games in an exhibit.

The audience in gaming has yet to mature but it will eventually. #2
