The game was great but the ending left me wanting more closure than, "Your crew crash landed. Good luck to them." Although I did like the ending scene after that. I was expecting more than what we got considering the time and effort we all put in the previous two games.
Seeing the situations of both Giantbomb/Gamespot and Tested/Mythbusters, I can't shake the feeling that they are not comparable. Clearly Jeff and David came out with a video specifically laying down what's really going on and I respect that. Giantbomb is still Giantbomb. But what's going on with Tested is completely different. They really do look like they are being taken over by the Mythbusters crew. You don't see Gamespots' Logo plastered all over Giantbomb. Sure, Will and Norm may still have their podcast and their video content etc., but like many others have said, they will eventually feel secondary. The logo on Tested is a big slap in the face for a telling sign of what's in store for the site in the future.
Watching all the Endurance episodes till the end just reminded me how much I still love this game. I hope many more gamers will give this game a chance. But now that it's over, what suggestions do you have for Ryan and Patrick? Or anyone else on the GB crew?
One option would be to continue on the Chrono Trigger train and do an Endurance Run of Chrono Cross, which is the spiritual successor to Chrono Trigger. I tend to think of Radical Dreamers more of a spinoff than a sequel, since it tells a different story.
Another game I'd like to see made an Endurance Run is Terranigma. I think that game has as many plot twists, endearing moments, and awesome battles as Chrono Trigger. Not to mention one of the best stories that have ever been told in a video game.
What other games do you want to see being put in an Endurance Run?
I agree with the OP. After listening to the podcast, why would you review a game to which you have nothing positive to say about the franchise? Jeff clearly states several times that he has very meager knowledge of Star Wars, going as far as to say that he could care less about it. He doesn't even sound neutral about it. Some of the problems he mentions are staples of MMOs.
Someone else should have reviewed SWTOR. Someone with at least some appreciation for the franchise.
