Who's law?

Posted by Tarsier

dear giant bomb, namely brad and ryan,
please stop saying that raskulls doesnt have meat boy controls.
raskulls is a completely different game and it does not need meat boy controls. it is responsive and does everything you tell it to, you dont need to be able to turn in mid air when you are jumping super fast. that is not how this game is.
dont suck at games and then blame it on the controls, any failing you experience in that game is because you are making mistakes. 
 
thank you

Keep fighting the good fight Jeff! Bring back the Nintendo release list! Down with Ryan Davis' tyranny!

Fucking FOOD TALK!!!! I'm stuck dealing with the moods of the dining hall at college (since I don't have any disposable income atm), and there's almost never good asian food anywhere. I WANT some good chicken, Kung Pao, Pad Thai, or whatever!

I am not doubting it or saying that Jeff can't have that opinion. I just don't like the fact that he's the only one who played it so all they can say is "that doesn't seem like it's fun" but it's base of his let's use the word biased opinion for lack of a better term that his negative. Just like my opinion is biased torward the appreciation I have of it. 
 
I just don't like also how he is seeing that no one can have any fun with that game and how he is acting like a Simpsons character "eueueueuueue" everytime someone bring the game after that like the game is a joke and a piece of shit. 
 
He doesn't have to like it but he is to categoric about it.

@RD_21:  This is were GB confuses me. Kotaku and other outlets like the game and considering how long its been out, you would figure APB like criticism the why GB is describing it.

What a very pleasant surprise. My face lit up when I heard Alex was this week's guest. He's easily my favorite guest on the Bombcast. Too bad he doesn't become a permanent member of the Bombcast staff.

Can we at least have the Nintendo store music for part of the podcast still, even without reading the games?

Posted by RomaTotti10

 Appreciated that you left out the Nintendo  downloadables segment. That shit hurt my ears :-)

Real talk man. Alex is staff on screened, you should totally check that site out. There is a movie based podcast with Alex and Matthew Rorie.

I just wanted to point out that I love listening to the DSIware and Nintendo downloadable releases because Jeff's false enthusiasm is amazingly entertaining. I don't even own a Nintendo product. As far as I'm concerned, if he decided to read corporate stockholder releases from random companies with that same overly enthusiastic sarcasm, I would listen! 
 
This, my friends, is why anyone, ever, gives a crap about Jeff's DSIware announcements:

I just want to say: Thank you, thank you, thank you for removing that too long and too tired segment of what is otherwise a near perfect podcast.
 
Oh, and please... DON'T COME BACK.
 
(I say this both for my personal enjoyment, and for your personal self-respect)

Exactly, why can't other people see it like this? I also don't own a DSi or Wii, in fact the last Nintendo product I bought was a GameBoy Color. However I love to hear this section because I usually end up laughing my ass off just the bombcast crew. Hell I'd guess the reason they started doing this is because they all got a laugh out of this shit.

What I meant is that he is biased negatively while I may be biased positively.

 

Also English is my second language so stop being douchey when you can clearly understand the big picture of what I meant.

Posted by RD_21

Or if you prefer, his judgment of the game as a whole is tainted by his dislike of the game or some areas of the game. It seemed like, since he didn't like some part he was exaggerating what he didn't like about the game until it was a 2/5. I am not saying he did that on purpose, most of the time it's unconscious, just like when we like a game it may become the greatest game of all time despite the flaws that all game have, no game is perfect.  

So his opinion is too "biased" or inclined in negativity while mine may be too positive but I don't think so, becauseI have many gripe with the game, but I still like it. The game is not a 5 but it sure is not a 2. It is at best a 4, at worst a 3. But it's not the score that bothers me that much but the general impression he is leaving to the rest of the crew and some readers/listeners that is leading them to believe that the game is an absolute piece of trash when it isn't.  

That's why I think that when you want to trash a game (or give it a perfect score) someone else should have played it to see if that reviewer was absolutely right. We won't argue about Naugthy Bear but there's some people out there who would give Uncharted a 2 but that's based on their opinion and what they like and don't. If the reviewers goes in with the state of mind that "this is not WoW" it's already lost. And like I said someone could hate the game while other may love it because DCUO is NOT a bad game, but some people will love it some will hate it, he hated it.  

So I just wish someone else could have played it to balance the this is trash opinion he has or give it more weight if they both agree. But in the current state all they could do was listen to him selling them on how that game was bad and say “Oh this doesn’t sound like the game I want to play.”, which is obvious since he hated the game.

Is the Green Lantern in the DC universe online game BLACK or WHITE????? 

Posted by ThePickle

I love Alex but HATE it when Vinny isn't on. Vinny is the best Giant Bomb staffer. Anyone who says otherwise is a communist and should be set on fire.

Is there a petition to re-include the Nitendo downloads as part of the Bombcast?  I personally don't own a Wii, but hearing that list every week makes me happy!

They handed it to Dave in the QL, the person most likely to give it a fair shot, and he didn't like it. From the comments from the rest of the crew, I don't think you would have gotten much better reviews out of them either. Outside of WoW, it's not much of a MMO office at WM from what I can see. As with all game reviews, remember it's an opinion and it's not always gonna line up with yours.

Also if you're like me & rather open minded to MMOs after trying some free ones & others, kept an open mind to see that on other sites (believe it was gamespy) pointing out a lot of the same issues with the controls/gameplay that they thought could have been better. As Chris2KLee put it, that's Jeff's thoughts on the game but in this universe the only opinion of a game that trumps everyone else is yours. There's lots of games on the site that after seeing the review or video review I can understand their thoughts on it though I might say that the game is more awesome than what they thought. No harm done & always insightful to see what other people thought of the same game.

DCUO is garbage. If you've played Champions Online, it's that, except really bad.
 
Champions makes it feel like you're just going through the motions after a few hours, DCUO is like that after 10 minutes. Now you take away the style of CO, the amount of costume pieces available at creation, all the cool powers, and what do you have? A barebones, licensed, pile of garbage. It's hard to believe how hyped this game is for how little it has to offer. Do yourself a favor and play CO if you want a superhero game, it's free, and it's pretty fun for a while. At least when you get bored and uninstall that you won't be out 50 bones. There are better games with the DC license as well if that's what your draw to the game is.
