The chaos and fun of Saints Row is fully intact in the underworld, but a new setting can only go so far.
Dimensions recaptures enough of Geometry Wars' thrills to stand as the best new dual-joystick shooter in quite a while.
The little mushroom man finally gets his name on the marquee, and the result is a charming, unique, and puzzle-heavy adventure.
Stop using Uber, Dan, it's a vile company.
Is anyone keeping of Ryckert's "lists"?
Take that, Destiny.
Surprised Jeff didn't break into Fuck the Police after that cop car got punched.
worst fucking shit ever. I couldn't watch more than 8 minutes. Sorry, GB.
well that looks like garbage
People around here love to say "garbage" now. Is your opinion that thin? What looks like "garbage" about this? It surely can't seem worse than any other 3rd person shooter. Garbage is a strong word without explaining why you think it looks so bad. I've heard plenty of people say the game looks like a generic shooter, or that it's not their genre, or that the story seems bad, or that it's not innovative enough. What makes this garbage to you?
Try this thought experiment. It's subjective in nature, and flawed, but take into account most games you've played, specifically the bad ones. Don't forget those. Then go and view their respective trailers. Does the trailer contain a disproportionate amount of cutscenes compared to actual gameplay? Is there an inverse correlation to the overall quality of the game in respect to the content of the trailers? Don't follow? Okay then, the theory goes two ways:
1) Trailer is mostly filled with story shit? Game is mostly shit (because they're not showing you how paper thin the actual gameplay part is), but who knows - maybe the story is okay.
2) Trailer is mostly filled with gameplay? Game plays well (hence the trailer showing it off in the first place), but who knows - maybe the story is garbage.
What do we see with the trailer? An overemphasis on boring bullshit cutscenes and overtly dramatic yet generic dun-dun-dun dah-dah! music. It's closer to a trailer for a forgettable Hollywood blockbuster, not a pitch to play a game. After watching it the first time I felt like I just saw the goddamn highlights reel.
As a complete aside, I think steampunk is for assholes with no taste, and a game based around that is a massive turn off, but hey - that's just me. If you want to play another game featuring a bunch of white guys (hey at least this time it's period-appropriate, they might even make it a hamfisted commentary on slavery!), then good for you.
@dudeglove: Thanks for your contribution.
Fine, here's something more detailed then: I just saw a generic-looking cover shooter set in a "gritty" Victorian setting with a gruff male protag facing a cliched crisis of conscience concerning the titular "order" he once served and the as-yet unrevealed twist (I'm guessing WE WERE THE HALF BREEDS ALL ALONG is probably it). It exudes absolutely no charm whatsoever. But if that's how you get your jollies, fine.

Why does the iTunes version end with creepy Old Man Gerstmann whispering things at me...
"Should someone call Alex?"
