    I'm extremely disappointed. This turned out to exactly what Civ fans feared it would be, Civ V with a sci-fi coat of paint. This game is almost like one giant mod. I wonder if the folks at Firaxis cam...

    Awesome, Rockstar is unleashing its inner Capcom. What is the point of this? It's not like GTA up to that point was ever big on graphics and detail. And the controls? Sigh.....the flying missions, how...

    @spaceinsomniac: I read that same article myself. Those developers are in total denial of why GameGate became a thing in the first place. Of the developers from that Escapist Magazine article, #5 is t...

    Nice win by the 49ers, but it was expected when facing the Cowboys and Tony boo boo. Still looking forward to the showdown with SeAdderall.

  • DifferenceEngine posted a message in the forum topic The Second Coming of Console Survival Horror. on the General Discussion board

    I'm not sure that a remaster of a 12 year old remake should be included in a so-called resurgence of survival horror. Besides, Capcom shouldn't be rewarded for bad behavior.The Evil Within looks like ...

  • DifferenceEngine posted a message in the forum topic A game you were exicited for, only to be disappointed. on the General Discussion board

    I was excited for Resident Evil 5 as it was the follow up to the excellent RE4. It wasn't merely mediocre, it was total dog shit. RE6 was a noble attempt to redeem the franchise, but it was an utter d...

    Exclusives are the heart of console gaming, have people forgotten this so quickly? It has been this way for three decades. So it took a mediocre franchise like Tomb Raider to get people incensed over ...

  • DifferenceEngine posted a message in the forum topic What is Sega's most neglected IP?. on the General Discussion board

    I'd go with Phantasy Star. I'd love to see it remade, except with better gameplay and a far better execution of PSIII's multigeneration concept.
