Rimeskeem682d ago

Every site I went said so. But tbh I have no idea.

"3. Scalebound cancellation"

What are you talking about? That category's focused on games, not announcements. And that was announced in 2017.

Sparta07682d ago

" game news of the year "
So yes scalebound cancellation does count for that.
But your right that was just n 2017 not 2016.
Maybe next year 🤓

coolbeans682d ago


No, Rimeskeem placed it under "Fail of the Year," not "Gaming News Story." Fail of the Year is focused on '16 games that were disappointing, broken, or flat-out bad.

lolosgolos680d ago

FB of the year. Quantum break is good the show was bad. No Man's Sky on the other had and PS 4 pro are fails of the year

Sparta07680d ago (Edited 680d ago )

QB was bad game period. A bad game is a bad game. Gameplay sucks, story sucks and live cutscenes sucked.
Same with NMS, but at least they are still doing updates on it. ( a little too late )
😂 The Pro sold out this holiday and it also outsold it's competitor.
If you think the PRO is a failure I could image what you think about Xboxone 😏
