Here's the bottom line: unless a mod creator can 100% guarantee that their mods will work even with game updates/patches and with other mods installed, it's ludicrous to pay for a mod. Mods historically have always been pretty janky, so I have no faith really that mod creators as a whole will be able to uphold that guarantee.

My Playstation 4 console is the greatest Playstation 4 console manufactured.

Worst news ever.

Guys, dozens of people have already played several hours of Infinite (Alex Navarro being one of them) and have not mentioned anything about the game being frustrating, in fact they've all been pretty GLOWING from what I've read.

And it's very, very, unlikely that any flaw that Bioshock Infinite would have would be that it's rage-inducing difficult, like what Jeff was alluding to. This isn't some quirky Japanese block puzzle game. It's a AAA mass-marketed FPS. These games aren't made to be frustrating anymore, and they haven't for a long time.

Furthermore, I don't understand why people look to Jeff for quality opinions on games. I love the man, and he has brilliant insight into the inner-workings of the game industry but he's probably the most irrational critic on this site. He said recently that Super Metroid and Metroid Prime were mediocre/bad. Yeah. Alex and Brad are the best reviewers here.

I love Tuesdays more than mondays.

People in this thread need to take a deep breath.

And relax.


Then realize that video game reviews are the most worthless thing ever. And you should never pay attention to them under any circumstances.

@Oldirtybearon: I'm not talking about a generic "hivemind" mentality, I'm talking about an internet lynch-mob mentality composed of gamers who feel the need to go on a holy crusade against reviewers they disagree with. Go on /v/ nowadays and you see people complaining about "casuals" unironically and getting seriously pissed off that someone disagrees with them. These are the lowest common denominator of gamers.

I'm worried about the growing popularity. I don't want the site to attract denizens of cesspools like /v/.
