"Oh hun, such a drama queen."


It's a rare thing where developers who choose to not allow early review copies actually pump out a good game. Nine out of ten times, it's because they've a low-quality product and they don't want the masses any the wiser until the non-refundable $60 has been paid. It's shady and ridiculous.

Like kevinsheeks said below, "Why not just make a quality product? will the company implode if they do something semi-logical. Instead they try to use deceit and s... #4.1.1

After the Unity debacle, you'd think the last thing Ubisoft wants is bad press and choosing not to release review copies is not a good sign. #4

Who are you disagreeing with? Myself or the reviewer? #1.1.1

Decent review. I don't think the graphics deserved a 10 and you got some of the plot wrong in your review. #1

I honestly couldn't care less. If some people want to be sheep and purchase the same recycled garbage every year, that's their business. Who am I to tell them no? I stopped playing Call of Duty after MW3 primarily because it never appealed to me and subsequently, because I noticed the recurring trend of barely any changes. I wasn't going to pay $60 every year for basically the same game only to trade it in a week later for a fraction of what I paid.

I don't mu... #16

Someone who's trying to gain attention for their website, telling us crap we already know. #1.2

This article's full of crap, if you ask me. Just wants attention, so it's going to go against the consensus. The first person mode is not pointless: it's new, fresh and something fans have been asking for Rockstar to include for some time now.

In addition, the article's comment of, " Re-releasing GTA V barely a year after release is already a questionable move..." annoyed me. Barely a year? It'll be a year and a day, actually. I've seen re-re... #53

I don't understand the point of this article. #2

Sorry you feel that way. I haven't had a single issue with controls whatsoever. #1.2

What about those who actually liked Johnny? I guess our opinions don't matter. Still, it was nice to see some continuance in the lineage, with the appearances of both Johnny and Packie. Even Ashley and that United Liberty Paper fellow that ended up getting my bullet between his eyes. #2.3.1

It looks unbelievably fantastic. It almost seems like they rebuilt it from the ground up. The first person mode isn't even a tacked on bonnet-view feature, it's a legitimate first person mode. Unreal! I'm so excited and less than two weeks way, no less! #3

I have to disagree. While this year's certainly been rather underwhelming, I find myself incredibly satisfied with the titles I've picked up this year.

Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition
Watch Dogs
The Evil Within
Sunset Overdrive
Dead Rising 3
Murdered: Soul Suspect
Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor
Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition
Forza Horizon 2
The Sims 4

Warning: minor spoilers of the GTA V narrative.

I actually don't much care for Trevor. He's my least played character of the three; I prefer Franklin, then Michael and even my mute GTAO character before Trevor. I have to admit though, some of Trevor's dialogue and moments were pretty great, especially his one-liners and lackadaisical, nonchalant apathy toward most things. I think my dislike for Trevor was automatic once he killed Johnny and I grew to tolerate him.... #2

Well, I like to think that my upbringing is a prime example in support of the opinion that video games do NOT cause violence in a person. At 8 years old, my father came home with a copy of Grand Theft Auto III; so I've been playing the Grand Theft Auto series for thirteen years. The first game I played was GoldenEye on Nintendo 64 at around 4 or 5 years old. I grew up watching my father play Manhunt while my mother stuck to Super Mario and Banjo Kazooie - LOL - so I've been exposed to... #3

I remember reading in an interview awhile back that Mass Effect 4 will essentially be a new IP. It'll be within the Mass Effect universe, but obviously Shepard's story is over. It's unknown if previous surviving characters will return. But ME4 won't tie in to the previous games as a 'final chapter.' Mass Effect 3 was the final chapter in that lineage. #1.1

I can definitely see where you're coming from, thorstein. True, no one is forcing anyone to play this game or any others for that matter. The point of my blog, though, was to highlight the game itself and ask the obvious questions.

In the second paragraph, I address the fact that video games are not responsible for real-world crimes. Sure, a murderer could be influenced by what he experienced in a video game, but the video game itself is never to blame.

Well, $60 is a steep price regardless, but Sleeping Dogs is only two years old. Splinter Cell's remaster on PS3 was significantly older but I think it was priced at $40.

Sleeping Dogs' definitive edition was a steal for me because I originally had it on Xbox 360, had a friend buy it off of me when I finished it, got it for free via Xbox Live Gold and now picked it up with all of the extra content for the price of the standalone game. #1.1

It's to create a more cinematic experience, from what I've read. There's rumours that it also helps the framerate but I don't know about that. It definitely should have been an option. Now I feel like I have to go out and buy an even bigger TV just to accommodate this game. #1.1
