Dear Square Enix,
Slow down. Make the games you have ALREADY announced.
And don't announce a new game, or even hint at a sequel, until you have actually completed and released the game/s that are already in the making.
Considering the millions and millions of dollars that went into making these movies, I'm surprised at least one of them didn't end up being a fantastic blockbuster.
I mean, statistically you'd think at least one would be good with the amount of cash that went into making them. :(
"But to have little children in the game and you just simply and mindlessly slash and bash kill them is another different story. That would be just wrong. I wouldn't buy it because I would be disturbed by it. I'm sure a lot of ppl would feel the same."
That's kind of the point though. Killing children (hell, killing anyone) IS disturbing. Yet sadly, that's what needs to be done in order to survive. Zombies don't discriminate in who they attack; t...
So? Developers shouldn't have to bend over backwards just to please the media OR a country's stupid rating systems. They should be allowed to make the games they want to make.
Games will never be taken seriously as a medium if developers keep removing anything remotely controversial, in fear that someone somewhere might be offended by it.
And if people are upset by the killing of children in a game, that's GOOD. Killing zombified children is suppo...
Remember when Capcom didn't need to resort to sex appeal to try to interest RE fans? Remember when the RE characters all dressed like proper special forces and police officers? Even though Jill's RE3 outfit was skimpy, it still made sense because it was her casual wear.
But Rachel's outfit...it just looks like pointless sex appeal for the sake of pointless sex appeal. It doesn't even make sense. What sort of special forces officer dresses and like THAT? Or has...
My thoughts exactly. Remember when the RE characters all dressed like proper special forces and police officers? Even Jill's RE3 outfit was skimpy, yet still made sense because it was her casual wear.
But Rachel's outfit...it just looks like pointless sex appeal for the sake of pointless sex appeal. It doesn't even make sense. It looks just as silly as Excella's "business dress" from RE5.
Hasn't every Japanese RE game either had a dual Japanese/English option or just an English option? Or am I mistaken?
That's fair enough. I guess it just seemed odd to me because during my last trip to Japan I couldn't escape AKB48 references. They had a massive billboard with some of the 'main' girls on a massive just outside my host-sister's house, stickers and calendars and bookmarks at the counter of many convenience stores, big posters of them inside malls and the local train station, etc.
I didn't see too many Arashi or Morning Musume stuff though. But there wa...
"are social, personalizable, and story-based—elements that research shows spark women’s interest."
It's interesting...I was thinking about why women don't seem to be all that interested in video games (and why many of my female friends don't "get" why I like gaming), and I think this is a big reason. A lot of women probably don't realize just how social or story-oriented games have become nowadays. Hell, my own friends are still convinced g...
Really? I mean, I don't want to sound like a dick but AKB48 really are everywhere in Japan. They're everywhere on tv, they're always at the top of the charts, their merchandise is in various stores. It's like Lady Gaga's popularity in America x1000.
Didn't Captain America get awful review scores? :/
Just because it's a shit show, doesn't mean people don't watch it though. It's obviously geared towards a non-gamer/casual crowd, and that must work for them because the ratings aren't all that bad for a ABC2 show. Not every gamer is into internet forums and game sites, so they use tv to get their gaming news.
@Masta_fro: My thoughts exactly. I can kinda see why the constant "Joe"s might be annoying or the depressing story might not be to everyone's taste, but they certainly aren't big enough reasons to mark the game's score down...because they aren't even genuine faults in the game!
The same goes for their "lack of different enemy types" complaint. Sure it might be a MINOR annoyance to some people, but who cares how many enemy varieties there ar...
Hmmm...not really sure why my comment is getting Disagrees? I was only poiting out that the review is from a tv show, not a website. Are people disagreeing with the "it's a tv show" part, or the "it's not their website" part? :/
The thing is, Good Game is a (fairly popular) show on Australian tv that has been running for a few years. And their page is on the channel's website, not their own. So I sadly don't think this review was done to get hits. :(
"Soreyuke! Burunyanman Portable: Torimodose! Ai to Seigi to Kibou no Tsunyakan"
Wow...that's a long name.
Pure gold :D
@Trophywhore: They probably don't want you either. ;D
NGL, I don't even get the score tbh. I mean, the review itself sounds like they really enjoyed it...So why the low score??
