Yeah, I dunno about this one. I take it that he's just saying Rock Band 4 plays like all the other Rock Band games and he can clearly not give a care about any of them to begin with, which, yeah, that's a fine, possibly relatable stance to have. I think it's just that he's so aloof about the whole thing is what's rolling my eyes about the article. I mean, he explains a couple of the main features being presented here and there, and that's all you really need to do, right? But still, how he's writing this stuff just kind of makes me think about how writing about games should be more diverse in topics, and yet I gotta wonder if something like "I dunno it's whatever I guess but don't take my word for it I'm just a fuddy-duddy" is really asking for that sort of deep conversation, y'know?
Guess at best I got a "lol what a dick" vibe from reading this, and it's just a preview of a game I've heard enough coverage about by now, so whatever all-in-all. But at worst, having a voice like that over something like a Rock Band preview seems so needlessly flatulent in a way that bothers me more than it should. hmph,
