360 and PS3 copies both seemed fuzzy and had a ton of screen tearing going on.. However, low quality videos like this one are never a good representation of what to expect.

Having said that, I have been playing the game on the PC with all graphics settings set to ultra, and I can attest to the stunning beauty of the game on that particular platform. Still, Ubisoft needs to address the low quality, blurry backgrounds coupled with vegetation pop-in that people have been experie... #1.3

Can anyone actually validate this? That link is not at all legit. #2

Games are considered art, therefore the cover art should then be an outward representation and reflection of that art as a whole. It's as simple as that. And in this case, we believe it fails to do so.

We all know it's going to sell like hotcakes and that is not at all what is being discussed here. It's about holding Irrational Games to a higher standard b/c we know, as we've seen in their past works, that they are capable of so much more than what has been p... #12.1.1

The Bioshock Infinite box art looks like bollocks and it's an important issue, so dagnabbit, leave us boxart enthusiasts alone! #24

Anything to drum up fervor and hype! #3

Is it just me, or does this game need a bit more grit? The lack of damage models on the characters sticks out like a soar thumb, and the textures seem just a bit too clean. #1

Out of the indie titles I've played in 2012, Hotline Miami gets my vote. I have yet to play Mark of the Ninja, but I did purchase it recently during the Steam Black Friday sale for half off, and I'm looking forward to it. #3

This "preview" wreaks of sensationalism. Although to be fair, it IS IGN, and that's what they do best--that and badly written reviews with overly-skewed scores. #2

Too bad the Toki remake from Golgoth is not on the list.. I've been following it for a while and it looks to be shaping up beautifully. #1

Any actual evidence to back up your assertion?? #5.1

Not a very optimistic outlook when the dev's are already stating they will jump ship if the game doesn't perform to their expectations in a six month time period. What happened to standing behind your product?? It's alright to have that thought, but don't state it publicly before your product has even seen the light of day. #2

I agree. But I also believe that this iteration is really targeted at the "no-frills" casual gamers looking for a dirt cheap entry-point, without worrying about pleasing those that would demand more from their console. The lack of internet access may be enough for us serious fans/gamers to scratch our heads in bemusement, but for the rest it will come off as a non-issue. And honestly, at $99 Nintendo is driving a hard bargain that parents this holiday season, in particular, will hav... #68.1

I hate to be the bearer of cheesy jokes, but Nintendo should have nicknamed it the "Wii-nii".. #67

It really is great to see a new Sim City finally rearing its head in the light of day! Let us hope that this iteration is the best one in the series so far. #2

Developers have to work around the hardware provided and the games created should be a reflection of the hardware and software working effortlessly in tandem with one another. In the past when developers were working with much more simplified systems & peripherals, if for whatever reason that symbiotic relationship could not be achieved, the flaws in the designs of the hardware would very quickly become apparent, and they would subsequently be phased out before the general populace could... #6

Most likely payola. I'm sorry, but there cannot be THAT large of a discrepancy between the scores we've been seeing without a little bit of money involved. #11.1

He's not saying that despite it being a bad game that he wishes it got more favorable review scores. He's simply stating that he was hoping for a better game, like a lot of us. Jeez, why don't you just calm down. #2.1.2

Aside from what you said about playing the waiting game or just shelling out the money up front as the DLC releases, what I find most annoying is having to allow said games to take up hard drive space on my PC for months and months after I've completed them, just so I can play some extra content down the line that may or may not be worth it. And more often than not by the time some worthwhile DLC does see release, my attention has moved on to newer games and I have little to no desire to... #1.1

The original Baldur's Gate games played nothing like the Dark Alliance games though. Dark Alliance games represent watered down versions of BG (imo) and were all about loot and co-op, whereas the originals were heavily mouse driven and focused on single player story, characters and actual RPG elements. #1.1

Bobby Kotick must have stepped out of the sweat sh... I mean office, providing another employee at Activision with the opportunity to quick post such a msg to the fans. Please, there's not a humble bone in Bobby "Douchebag" Kotick's body, so it most certainly couldn't have been on his watch! #6
