Dead Rising 3

"The final nail in this game’s coffin is that it’s an Xbox One exclusive. What a terrible way to kick a franchise to the curb. You need the Kinect to attract zombies by shouting. You also need a Kinect to change your outfit back to what you were wearing before you picked up that welder’s mask. Don’t have a Kinect? Well, that didn’t seem to occur to anyone making this game. The interface is dotted with dopey microphone icons where you’re supposed to read commands out loud because, god knows, it would be far too inconvenient to press a button on the controller you’re already holding."

I cant imagine its that bad. i enjoyed dr2, heard mostly good reviews for 3. Didnt know kinect was in it. I hate kinect.

"I cant imagine its that bad."

You have to understand that Quarter to Three is not an objective review outlet* and all reviews are done subjectively. So when they say something is a 2/5, they're actually saying it only okay in terms of fun and nothing more.

* Still don't know why Metacritic allows this site on their listing.

There is a simple option to turn off kinect in the game. It's too bad this guy is such an idiot that he couldn't find it.

Game is super fun, sounds like a butthurt -$ony fanboy to me.

Pfft! pressing buttons and using a controller, pfft, so last gen!

/s

Now please don't kill me for joking guys. Runs and hides.

And alexkoepp, please give your constant fanboyism a rest man, not everybody who isn't in love with MS, (your lord and savior) is a Sony fanboy.

"sounds like a butthurt $ony fanboy to me."

If there is ANYONE on the planet immune to being called a Sony fanboy, it would be Tom Chick. Want proof? Scroll ALLLLL the way to the bottom of the Metacritic listing for The Last of Us ( http://www.metacritic.com/g... ) and you'll see Quarter to Three's review by Tom Chick with a score of 3/5 or 6/10. Anyway, it's fairly standard for him and really this site. I would argue about it, but like I said these reviews are subjective and scores are based off enjoyment, which takes away most of the creditability.

mcarsehat1571d ago

I don't know how metacritic is still seen as an authority (anything below 59% is seen as bad.) If the algorithm doesn't make sense, the website doesn't.

mikeslemonade1571d ago

Sony Fanboy and butthurt is like a oxymoron. How can you be butthurt if you are winning the console war??

coolbeans1571d ago

Even terms like "objective" keep getting skewed by this community. Resting sole emphasis on overall enjoyment of a game when giving a formal evaluation shouldn't majorly detract from one's credibility. Determining a different procedure as not only being lesser but somehow now not legitimate as a review seems arbitrary and snobbish.

It is just a particularly dumb article. You can disable kinect functionality in the options and it replaces it all with button prompts. It also defaults to button prompts if you unplug the kinect, or even if the kinect can't see you.

It is also due for release on PC in the very near future.

dead rising is fun for like 5-10mins when you play it.
and wtf i am reading at the article:
>The final nail in this game’s coffin is that it’s an Xbox One exclusive.
its on PC too in 2 months.

Brim1571d ago

well the funny thing is DR3 was the best next gen game until TF came out ... IMO it was better then Infamous... idk what people are looking for when they play games but graphics alone do not make a game a 10 ... then DR3 added the coop feature that made it 10x better ... only problem was boss battles were to easy but the game was amazing idk what u guys played ...

Oagoz1571d ago

Hehe, Titanfall. That game died in 1 week.

Kribwalker1571d ago

^^^^this guy. Titanfall on x1 is still top 5 individual formats chart for uk, 4 months later. Infamous isn't even top 20 anymore

Anyways, dead rising 3 is a total blast. I'm about to pick up that crazy add on they announced at E3. By far it was my favorite launch game. Played it for hours on end running down 100's of zombies in a row with my steamroller bike. If you haven't gotten it on X1 but have a decent PC definitely pick it up. You won't be disapointed

maniacmayhem1571d ago

Was this a satire review?

"The first and greatest mistake in Dead Rising 3 is that it all but removes the survival horror aspect."

BobBelcher1571d ago

Man I tell you- when boredom and the internet clash- it produces some really ridiculous material... One of which is this piece of garbage. "nail in the coffin" lol.

Bathyj1571d ago

Ugh, this guy. Why does he still have a job?

I dont even know if he has any legitimate point because after a couple paragraphs of reading his whining, negative tone I decided I dont care what he thinks. About anything.
