"Oh hun, such a drama queen."


Well, generally everything. Between the expansion packs that were a cut and paste job from The Sims 2 (that should have been included in The Sims 3 base game), the price of the expansion packs and the 'stuff' packs as well ($20 is a bit much for a couple of pieces of virtual furniture), their inability to fix a bug without causing a worse one and lastly, The Sims 3 itself being poorly developed and inappropriately demanding, specs-wise. The Sims 4 will hopefully be an improvement but... #7.1.1

What in God's name is a mug? I take it you didn't mean the object used for holding beverages. #1

I'm not surprised to see Electronic Arts on that list given some of their past actions (especially with their handling of The Sims 3) but I think Activision needs to share a spot, because they're just as bad (if not worse) in my opinion. #7

No, because thumbstick wear is completely normal and understandable depending on how thick and durable the material is and how they're being handled. If you're handling them like some sort of wild animal, of course they're going to wear more easily. However, nothing wears faster than the thumbsticks on the Razer Onza controllers.

I haven't had a single issue with the PS4 controller's thumbsticks nor the battery and you're the first person I've hear... #3.1.1

I'm truly questioning the credibility of your claims considering the fact that I have never heard a single complaint about the PS4's controllers thus far and I don't recall hearing complaints about the PS3's either. To base your opinion and mindset about Sony because of ONE faulty controller is absurd.

Your overall blog is so ridiculous, I feel like I went through a maze just trying to make sense of it. You go from complaining about a faulty controller to clai... #3

"It's really beginning to show its age." It's a decade old and was released on a console three generations past. It sounds like someone's run out of things to write about so they decided to go back in time. Lame. #1

I can absolutely see where you're coming from and I agree to an extent. It bothers me as well when it takes quite a bit of time to build your bank account to a decent amount, but every time you die, whether it be in free mode or in a deathmatch or other game mode, you lose money. I have absolutely zero context for understanding why Rockstar feels that's necessary; it's as if they're saying, "Well, get better at the game and don't die." But what if I want to mess... #3.1

I keep hearing complaints about the $60 price tag, but what people don't seem to grasp is that even though its a re-release, it comes packed with all of the downloadable content on top of better graphics, physics and gameplay. It's well worth the $60 with just the DLC combined alone, nevermind with the improvements to the base game. #1.11

I absolutely loved the satire. Very well written and very entertaining! #1

I honestly don't even think that Rockstar should penalize players by removing the GTA$ that they were gifted through the hacked bounties. It's difficult enough as it is to earn the exorbitant amounts of money needed to purchase items in GTA Online to make the experience worthwhile. While microtransactions are available, allowing you to purchase in-game money, it's just foolish. Gamers shouldn't have to use their own real money to purchase digital funds when they've already... #10

I might just haven't enough experience with Capcom's methodologies, but judging on the research I did following my reading of this blog, my first thought was: "Well, perhaps Capcom is moving forward with new developments." Looking back on the latest MVC release, it was an arcade game released in 2012.

With the newly released Xbox One and PlayStation 4, Capcom had Dead Rising 3 as a launch title and I'm sure they've many more next-gen games in mind wi... #1

With all due respect, this review is as lacking as you imply the game in question to be and if I may be so bold to say, judging on your comments, you haven't played the game yourself.

Your introductory paragraphs serve no indication as to what your point is; you vaguely reference previous QD games, but in no context or reflection to the standpoint you're making. In short, the opening paragraphs were rather pointless. The remaining three paragraphs of your review vague... #2

Good, now that means I get an extra $130 in my pocket tomorrow when I cancel my preorder. Good for Ubisoft for having the gumption to delay instead of releasing an unfinished product. I'll be sure to preorder again closer to launch and I can be $130 richer at the moment. Everybody wins! #114

I found that playing with a smartphone or tablet was just as much the same as the controller. It all depends on the responsiveness of one's phone or tablet though; high end devices like the iPhone, Galaxy, Acer or iPad will be easy to play with. But with devices without as decent responsiveness on the screen, players might have a bit more difficulty. #2.1

WARNING: SPOILERS for anyone who hasn't played the game. Please ignore or read at your own discretion.

That's actually a good point there, regarding Jodie's love interests. I never thought about how she and Ryan ended up getting so close, especially after he basically forced her into the CIA. With Jay on the ranch for instance, I sensed a lot of intimate tension, but nothing was ever developed until the end of the chapter when you have the choice to let Jodie kiss... #1.1.1

What a worthless article. #11

Well written review. My only counter-argument would be your comment on the confusing story structure; it was confusing just because the narrative didn't proceed chronologically? I can name several movies that had similar progression. It worked in Beyond's fashion as we're given experiences in different parts of Jodie's life before everything comes together harmoniously.

Regarding the choices not directly affecting the ending; none of the choices you'd make... #1

What a rubbish "comparison." There is no proper evidence here while the lighting is vastly different. #21

In essence. It's there, you just have to pay attention. It doesn't come right out and tell you what they were looking to imply; the theme is there and the actions and situations presented with dialogue is up for your determination.

Not going to lie, it's chilling. #3.1.1

I don't expect people to think highly of my reviews; I expect people to read them and take my opinions at face value and experience the video game for themselves. The change of score was not completely based on the online component, but based on my 100% completion of the game with the multiplayer feature obviously inspiring the overall score. It was bound to change because the initial review was for the main game itself, as GTAO was not yet available.

As for my reviews be... #11.1
