A new ER candidate?

#1 Posted by Matiaz_Tapia (261 posts) -

 
   I really like this game. Or at least I did after the first season( ?) 
 
It's definitely not terrible. But since it was a marketing experiment it just didn't generated any buzz at all, so it sold very little apparently. 
 
 The reason I think this could make a good ER, it's because nobody played this game, it's fairly cheap and it makes for an interesting story ( whether it's good or bad it's arguable).  A possible bright side for the crew is that it's not a very long game either. 
 
 I apologize it this comes up as spammy or to "out of the blue". I tend to do that...

We will not be getting another ER for a long long time. The last one was 9 months before this one started.

The new ER needs to be a good game. And please can we never, ever have another topic like this again.

im on bored for siren. but all i need to know is can the team make jokes about it or will it be a depressing/scary game.

Oh dear god, these topics are back. 
 
I'd love to see someone play through Siren: Blood Curse, but I don't think the Giant Bomb duders will be playing it.

The thing is ER games have to have standalone charm and some hilarious moments. I haven't played Siren Blood Curse, but it's a horro game and from what a lot of people say, a very good one at what it does, so I doubt it'll work well, since it isn't a funny game.

Just trowing it out there :).  I do enjoy the ER's, it's only natural to be thinking on hypothetical situations  after the current one it's over. I know it's going to be a while for the next one since people are probably still catching up to it.
 
 Siren was a fairly good game. It just got strangely ignored.  Unless of course, I ended up playing a terrible game without realizing (I happens, I do admit it)

They usually go for new games, and Siren Blood Curse is relatively old. I would like to see them play it too, I do however have a copy myself that is unplayed.

Deadly Premonition was mostly a good choice for an Endurance Run but the gameplay was so terrible and unbearable that I think that it scared them away from ever doing another ER, it's a shame really but what can you do
 
P4 was different, that was a good game and they liked it alot more

Also, stop making threads like this, they can find a game to ER for themselves

I dunno, Deadly Premonition was a pretty poor game from a technical standpoint but it still had interesting characters and a story that was pretty good too. I don't know much about Siren but a big part of the Endurance Run is the game having an interesting narrative, if there's any chance of the game coming off weak on the story side then it just may not be as captivating as an Endurance Run candidate.

 Granted, not a funny game in any way. The best things it has going for it's the story format (It's separated in episodes of variable length and presented like a tv show) and the fact that it got sort of pushed aside for being an early digital distribution experiment. 
 
  I don't mean to imply that the staff should take my suggestions or even look at them. I'm mainly interested on the option of this game as an endurance run and what you guys think about that. 
 
 If anything it gets people talking about some forgotten games like this one . I won't let it die so easily ;)....Or maybe I will, that always depends.

I know, but these threads still happen.

I actually think this is a pretty good idea. Game looks good, and by the time I can afford a PS3 the next consoles will be coming out.

You know, Heavy Rain would be pretty awesome.

You know where Siren Blood Curse belongs? On the Fear Gauntlet. ...The dead and forgotten intern Fear Gauntlet..

first of i fucking love that game and would love it see that but if they do another ER it will most likely be a loong time before they do another one, and if they or when they do its most likely not that game since i dont think it would make a good ER

I posted this a year ago and 7 months ago...Please nevermind. This was before the crew was clear that they didn't wanted ER suggestions so please don't chop my head off.
