Re: Early reviews

Metacritic sucks anyway. Everyone either rates the game a 1 because of made up reasons, or a 10 to combat the 1s, or a 1 to combat the 10s. Complete joke of a site. Diablo 3 has a 4.0, which it's not. Modern Warfare 3 has a 3.4... Breath of the Wild is down to a 7.6 because of "rating 1 to bala...

Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

Yeah! There are like 4-5 bad reviews, and then one article for some reason that cherry picked bad reviews to say the game is bad? And then there's a deluge of 7-9s. Seems good to me. REALLY unfortunate that people insist on injecting drama into this game's legacy. The Playtonic Facebook page is unbe...

Re: Early reviews

Yep! I'm actually seeing a TON more positivity than negativity. There are actually like 5 bad reviews, and one article that for some reason only highlighted the bad ones and ignored a wall of great ones that weren't from monolith names.

Re: What might happen to Playtonic if Yooka-Laylee flops...

I really don't think they're going to flop at all. TrashTron babies seem to think they're losing hundreds of thousands of sales.

I think they maybe lost in the low hundreds. I for one will be buying a third copy just to spite all the TrashTron babies.

Re: Early reviews

It seems like what I expected. Reviewers totally missed the point. They haven't suffered 17 years of waiting for this game, so they don't get it. Collecting a crud-ton of things in hard to find or obtain places is thee entire point. Some call it "arduous" or "tedious" - I call it...

Re: POLL: Playtonic Kart Racer + Online Multiplayer

The game that comes out next week? I think they have a couple minutes to look to the future now. I'd love a Kart Racer. My own 2 cents is - I hope they do another adventure game first to expand the Playtonic Universe a little bit, and THEN do a Kart Racer. I agree with some of the above sentiments t...

Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

It's a great score, but it's still missing the point of the game entirely. To complain the voices are like Banjo Kazooie is to complain Picasso overuses basic shapes. I suspect we're going to see a lot of this as most reviewers will not have the same deep connection to the project.

Re: Almost guys... In a few hours we will know if the game will be recieved well!

I feel like almost all of the reviewers will miss "the point". It seems the reviews that ARE out largely: * Were not waiting for Banjo Threeie for close to two decades * Have not been following this project since the Mingy Jongo days * May not have any previous experience with the project ...

Re: Early first Spoiler free review is in! 8/10

The reviewer clearly doesn't understand Banjo's characterization. I'm ready to give this game a spot in my top 5 games of all time if "voice acting" is the only gripe lmao. Talk about missing the point though, yeesh.

I never understood why anyone liked a reviewer who prides himself on using neo-Nazi imagery but... regarding Jim and any/all of his reviews I only have one thought. I can't type it here because this is a family forum but it rhymes with "go duck yourself Jim". Plus wasn't this game just at ...

Re: Reviews: expectations and what attention will you pay them

I really don't care what the reviews end up saying. I'm going to like this game anyway. And I've disagreed with reviews plenty of times. I'll read them, but in no way will I internalize the reviews as what I should expect from the game myself.

Nonsense is just that though - nonsense. Idiots like the one in that picture go online and spit their make believe nonsense into Twitter and then pat themselves on the back thinking they accomplished something. They didn't. Nobody believes what they wrote, and what they wrote isn't remotely the trut...

Re: Trophies/Achievements leaked (SPOILERS)

It's a bit mind boggling to me the Switch didn't add cheevos. I know they do nothing, but I definitely enjoy that digital pat on the back. Oh well, I got a physical PC version to keep in the box and a Steam version to play.

Exited that we're well under a month until release!

Re: Poll for Switch Backers (Unofficial)

Hey that's fantastic. BOTW is a beautiful game on the Switch regardless, so it's cool to know it can push even better looking games. And admittedly the draw distance in the game is huge, so I'm not surprised they had to cut a corner somewhere to be able to fit so much scenery in.

Re: Poll for Switch Backers (Unofficial)

Isn't Breath of the Wild 900p on the TV? Can the Switch even handle 1080p?

Don't get me wrong, I looooooooooooove my Switch and I'm not resolution-whining. I just didn't know it could do 1080.

Re: NINTENDO SWITCH

Bomberman is "okay" and that's really the best I can say about it. The control stick movement is a little weird because instead of sticking perfectly to the grid, you end up getting stuck on a corner while you try to turn a lot. The story is, in my opinion, awful. But the story mode levels...
