Guys, they've abandoned the "video game-specific channel" thing for years now. They're basically a Spike TV clone. Unfortunately I cannot give my opinions on the network today as I have DirecTV, and they gave G4 the axe.


The website content was pretty good for a while, and that probably was because Patrick Klepek was on staff for about a few months.

Fantastic write-up. It really shows how Valve really is one of the most awesome developers out there.

They've also set up an empire of hats, so I think we'll still have to see on that one. Valve might realize that people value portal a lot, and are willing to pay for it. "

Valve has said before that when they add new content and subsequently do a small weekend sale for it, the sales skyrocket for that title. It'd be smarter just to add the new content and drop the price down to $30/40 for a weekend, they'll probably get more money than just slapping up $5 map packs.

" I'd like to see them try and defend their infamous God Hand review.

I don't need IGN to explain their logic. There's only so many ways to say "We just say what we think the gamers want to hear."



Jesus tapdancing christ. That was almost six years ago, and you still have a bug up your ass over their difference of opinion on that single game? Dude, let it go. It's not worth it anymore.

Granted, I don't go to IGN all that often, but I listen to the GameSpy Debriefings and that show has a very loose style, almost like a radio show. Hell, they rarely talk games and it's fascinating because of that, really.

Hey, with Game Gear games on the 3DS, kids will get to experience the horror that was Sonic the Hedgehog 2 on the Game Gear. Except with a less shittier screen. :V

He argues that gamers get angry and enraged, people then dump on them for "making rehashes" when they've probably never played a COD past COD4, if they've ever played one for more than five minutes.  
 
There are too many people in this thread being outright hypocrites about this. It makes you look incredibly stupid in hindsight.

This thread is terrible. You couldn't attempt to give the reasons WHY you hated MOH or Black Ops? We're not mindreaders, people! We need arguments to support our opinions!

Most game sites already do that. 90% of the time, the reviewer does not go to previews or trade show events involving said game.

" It's called HL2: Episode Three. Stop saying Half-Life 3. It's not gonna be L4D3 either.     "

Announcing Half-Life 2: anything in 2010 (or the far future) is completely insane from a marketing standpoint.  It will be called Half-Life 3 (when it finally happens). "
That answer sounds very stupid. Half-Life 3 needs to be a drastic jump into a new time period and world, not just an easy sequel that finishes the HL2 saga. Don't apply other developer's logic to Valve, it never works. 
 
It will still be called Half-Life 2: Episode Three. They've gone this far, they can't change it now without having to do some really weird explanations for new players.
