SO glad i pre-ordered Dynasty Warriors 8 Empires instead.

Where does one even rent games anymore?

Redbox. Them and GameFly.

Absolutely opposed.

There's no guarantee it'll continue in the case of anything that's not super-established, and when it is an established franchise, why are we not getting a full game anyway?

My opinion on this sort of thing was cemented after SiN Episodes: Emergence. It ended on such a cliffhanger, and I SOOOOOOO wanted to see what happened next, but the project was canned (despite making a profit), and Ritual got bought out by MumboJumbo.

These QLs are always great. Though from what I saw, it doesn't look as offensively bad as some are saying. If you come to terms that is sort of a kids game that is.

I fucking hate "it's a kids game" being used as an excuse. Some of the most awesome games in history were kid-friendly. The mainline Mario series, the Genesis Sonic games, the Rayman games, Rocket Knight, the Capcom NES Disney games, Legend of Zelda... And the fucking awesome Sonic Colors and Sonic Generations. Not only that, but look how boring this shit is. Kids have a shorter attention span than adults; they're going to get distracted while playing this empty, lifeless shit.

This was a game that was given little to no love or attention, handed out to an incompetent developer, to hype up a cartoon that didn't need this game marring it. If I'm Nintendo, I'm pissed at Sega - the exclusivity deal has only resulted in two shitty Wii U games and two shitty 3DS games. Watch how the game in development for all systems turns out to be great, as if to spite Nintendo and the money they gave Sega...

Based on what I was hearing about the game, my point was that it doesn't look as extremely terrible as some were saying. When I said kids game I was thinking that some kids might enjoy it as Dan himself said.

All that in a vacuum though, I don't even bother to compare these new games with the old ones anymore. In any case I saw some more of if after the QL, and yeah, looks pretty bad.

My apologies. I erroneously assumed you were doing what SO MANY PEOPLE have been doing with this game, excusing it by saying "oh it's for kids." It drives me up a fucking wall to see that shit, but that's no excuse for projecting onto you. And you're right, this Quick Look doesn't make the game seem AS offensive (well, aside from the whole "find Cliff" bit), and it's hard to take mainstream games media seriously about anything Sonic when the uniform opinion seems to be "Everything after the Genesis games sucks," which reeks of blindness built from nostalgia, besides being totally fucking bullshit.

And yeah, I've been seeing bits of the BrainScratchComms LP and the live playthrough on HellfireComms, and they certainly go far deeper into how terrible this game is.

I wonder what it says about me that I read the explanation for the WWE article and did not immediately realize who it was they must have been playing as.

That said. I don't think most people think the GG stuff has gone away/is dead. Its mostly that for the vast majority of people, there is no discussion worth having. Everyone who agrees with you is speaking truth to evil, everyone who disagrees with you is literally the devil/hitler/all that is wrong with gaming culture today.

What point/s, exactly is there that the two sides are openly talking/listening to the other about, exactly? Who is there even to have a conversation with?

Even the basic response to this article (mine included) are more or less just stating opinions, not having conversations. When both sides begin a talk with "I am right, the only way forward is your total agreement with me" then we get no where. Indeed I've seen it declared as hard truth by both sides that there is no point in conversing, after all the other side isn't listening or, again, is literally the scum of the earth.

Insert witty comment about how this is alarmingly like American politics.

My major point isn't in attacking or defending GG, as I said there I see no point in it, no one is listening except to hear what they already believe, or to verify I believe something they don't so they can ignore any other points I have to make.

Have I forgot the issue exists? That the movement or whatever you want to call it is a thing? No. My and others lack of giving it anymore attention isn't a sign of ignorance to its existence.

Let me put it this way. At this point, the only thing people on either side want from me and others like me is validation. If I or others hold a position somewhere even slightly in the middle? Well then we are declared the enemy by both sides.

Are we ignoring the issue? Of course not. But it damn well has decided to ignore us. We don't fit into the nice little box of black/white the whole debacle has been spun into by both sides after all.

I want to hug you sooo much. THIS!!!

I'mma join in and make this a group hug!

I always tell myself not to buy so many HD Edition/Remake/Definitive Edition/Remastered versions of games cuz I feel it encourages laziness from publishers (reselling you something you probably already own with a few bells and whistles added for full price) but I already know I'm gonna cave on this one.

Meh, on the rare occasion I already own the game being redone, I'll just sell it on to get credit toward the new edition. DmC will likely benefit greatly, if only from a rock-solid 60FPS.

Jeff seems to spend a good bit of time complaining about how this isn't Call of Duty...

Sega's sitting on something like 100 old IPs that are each about a billion times more interesting than Sonic, and this is the crap they continue to shovel out.

Unfortunately, Sega's largely stopped caring about things like their legacy or basic quality control since they've gone 3rd party. Yeah, the occasional game comes out from them that's worth a damn, but more often than not, they hit cruise control.

It's why I hope Nintendo never, ever goes 3rd party. They'd almost certainly end up the same way without the need to push hardware lighting a fire under their asses.

The characters in this never. Shut. The fuck. UP.

This.

I saw this QL, and now I never want to see the cartoon, simply because the characters seem so insulting.
