Wow, MediEvil. Haven't thought about that game in a while.

Another Quick Look where they seem to be bothered to play the game and do nothing but rag on it. Jeff seems to be back to his Kane and Lynch attitude where he shits on everything that isn't exactly what he likes and his army of yes men follow along. At this point just stop doing Quick Looks and go do whatever it is you obviously want to be doing instead. Do you have someone watch these before posting them? After a Quick Look like this where you say nothing positive and see how you literally say you don't care about how the game plays, the fact you allow it to be posted is unprofessional and does a disservice to the game, the audience and your credibility. I realize the site is about being too cool to give a shit about things like objective opinions or what someone who doesn't play more than a dozen games a year might get out of a title compared to a jaded reviewer that has played hundreds of games in their lifetime and hates everything that isn't new or to their specific tastes. The overall attitude and enthusiasm of the staff these last few months has really brought down the quality of the coverage and has me asking why they they keep doing what they apparently don't like to do anymore. Too much snarkiness and not enough old-fashioned game coverage. The game isn't great, we get it, but at least be respectful and point out the interesting bits and illustrate how it plays without adding how you really could care less. You'd be better off just stopping a few minutes in and not doing a Quick Look at all. I realize you're all now "old men" in an industry that is centered on the 14-25 demographic, you feel like you need to be extra angsty to fit in to a generation you're not part of, that hating on everything and acting blase about the next "big" game is what is expected from the internet generation. Being 36 myself I've realized you just look like a fool trying to do so. Like a dad at his kid's school using terms like fresh or sweet, a decade after they were out of fashion. Instead of trying to lower your standards to reach the dipshit generation, maintain your dignity and set an example for what game coverage should be. Anyone can play a game and talk shit about it on Youtube, use your years of experience to compare and contrast and point out why a game is or isn't good, while also remembering that people play games to have fun - even when it's mindless and generic. Shit, Dynasty Warriors is still a thing, if that doesn't show you what people will play then you don't really understand the audience.holy shit.
...so i'm staring at my copy of L.A. Noire that I haven't played yet, and my un-updated PS3.. I'm guessing I shouldn't download that yet?
