Brendan's forum posts
The expendables will be bad for sure, and I have no feelings for The Losers, so it's the A-Team for me (it will be slightly better than bad).
Haha, took me an extra read through to get it, but I like that list now.
"Shit list. "
You probably didn't get it then.

Exactly, which is why the tone of the OP is ridiculous. He's trying to defend this game as being good, because it's such a bad joke that people pretend that it is just for the lolz. My point is that at some point someone needs to throw up their hands and say "Enough with this worn out joke! The world is round, the sky is blue and Deadly Premonition is a fucking terrible game!"

" OP comes off as being overly defensive about a sub par budget game with cult appeal "That's just it - it's a cult game. It's exactly why you have reviews being all over the place with sites like 1UP and Destructoid loving it while IGN and Gamecritics hate it. Hell, it's why you have such a huge disparity between Jeff and Vinny who seem totally into it and Brad and Ryan who treat the game like it's some kind of horrible chore forced upon them. I'm with you that the OP might be being a bit too defensive, but I can see where he's coming from. It's not like this game is completely without merit; the problem is that most of the people saying the game is just completely terrible are basing it off the Endurance Runs... which have shown the first forty-five minutes of a game that, kind of like Persona, is a bit of a slow starter and has yet to get completely insane.

Are you people watching the Endurance Run right now? If you can't tell that it's terrible, notice that the only reason people say "It's so bad that it's good" is because they can't help but laugh at it's awfulness. It's not actually fun to play, it's bad in the same way Big Rigs was, except not broken so you can actually play it.
