    I'm pretty sure they already give review scores, on a 1-5 basis, with some exceptional 0s.

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic Examples of Corruption in Games Journalism. on the General Discussion board

    To be honest, it seems everything's quite hunky-dory at the moment. It would be nice if people would just chill, maybe take a walk in the park, speak to their loved ones type of deal.

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic What's wrong with the Pokemon dev team?. on the Pokémon board

    I've been frustrated with Game Freak for longer than I can remember, to be honest. The sheer potential the Pokemon franchise has is staggering, yet every game just ends up feeling like they took the ...

  • Rothbart posted a message on the post Quick Look: The Legend of Korra.

    I just don't understand Dan. Many children I knew and grew up with loved wrestling when they were younger, and then stopped watching when they got older and got different interests, yet I don't go ar...

  • Rothbart posted a message on the post PlayStation TV Compatibility Quiz.

    I know it might be tacky to say it, but man... if there's one game that really, really needs to be endurance runned (ran?), it's Persona 5. I have this feeling that Dan is only weird because of his up...

  • Rothbart posted a message on the post Quick Look: Vib-Ribbon.

    Man, I had totally forgotten about this game! I think I played it a few times, but I can't really remember when... I must have been about 10 years old when this game came out in Italy. It's hard to f...

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic Destiny Voice Cast - What the hell?. on the Destiny board

    Probably just another symptom of the gross overspending rampant in the AAA market these days. Honestly, one of the only draws of Destiny is the production value. If the same kinda game came out on St...

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic What prompted your first use of the World Wide Web?. on the Off-Topic board

    It was sometime in the early Nineties, I was probably about three years old, I accessed the Sesame Street page. Even then I was looking up shows I liked.

  • Rothbart posted a message on the post Hideo Kojima Premieres New Silent Hills Trailer.

    Yeah, there's something very reminiscent of the Binding of Isaac about all this... which is only a good thing, mind you. I'm looking forward to what they actually produce, but at least we know that t...

  • Rothbart posted a message on the post Quick Look: The Sims 4.

    Honestly though, this game is really disappointing right off the bat. I realize that the game's mechanics, like it's core systems, have been improved with the various relations and methods of interac...

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic P.T. and Silent Hills. on the Silent Hills board

    Besides, Patrick isn't the most observant gamer. I don't know about the average player, but the solution was very obvious to me in nearly every moment he got stuck. I mean, I'm no puzzle savant, but ...

    @chrisharris: And Karl the Invoker, of course :D

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic What's your worst ever video game-related purchase?. on the General Discussion board

    It didn't cost me much (Steam and all) but I'd have to say it was The Path. After half an hour walking aimlessly through the woods, with no sort of direction whatsoever, my suspension of disbelief wa...

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic Metric system is dumb, and here is why (Rant). on the Off-Topic board

    The longer the U.S. puts off updating their archaic system, the harder the transition is going to be. We're talking Internet Explorer levels here. Might as well count things in furloughs while we're ...

  • Rothbart posted a message in the forum topic Ryan Davis, 1979 - 2013. on the Ryan Davis board

    I once sent the duders a package full of salty Norwegian sweets and candy made from bugs, which Ryan prompty put in the communal office plate. Hell of a guy, truly inspirational. It's been a year but...
