I have 2 copies of Age of Empires 2 HD edition on steam. Not sure what I want for them, but offer something I don't have and I'll probably trade. I'm deployed right now so it might take a few days for me to respond. Please send all offers as a PM.
Reviews and their scores are outdated. You really can never know if the person behind it is being paid to give it above a certain score...and I've played plenty of games my favorite reviewers have raved about but I've hated.
And for this post-release change of score...we should give Baldur's Gate a 10.1 since user-made patches allowed it to be played in BG2's engine. But seriously...a bigger change needs to happen.
Vinny has said it numerous times and it really hasn't hit me until this SimCity bullshit brought to light.
We could write paragraphs about the bullshit going on...but what I think we need to have is a discussion about how to make it better. There's got to be a way to stop companies from burying shit on Google and making fake reviews on sites like Amazon. As a consumer, I don't necessarily think I'm entitled to the BEST dvd player ever when shopping on Amazon (Louie shoutout), but I am entitled to not be mislead by lies. There needs to be consequences to this stuff. I'm a little drunk posting this...and its a pretty ridiculous post, BUT what the fuck can we do? Why do we stand by and let this happen?
