  1. Yes. I know that. Which is why I said there should be a better system for reviewing games based on it's own merits and it's flaws. But that system should also give a few points to the reviewer to express his/her opinion as well. As it is many reviews and scores are based entirely on opinion. And I have seen some good games get railroaded while bad games have gotten some oddly high scores. Most of the time (sadly) when a game that is bad gets good reviews there is some incentive for the company to do so. The good games with bad scores can be a matter of the reviewer not liking the series
  2. Isn't it ironic to say "OK I don't like Obsidian because they screwed up this other game but I'm not going to let my opinions influence my reviews"? You're right that reviewers need to try and take account of different opinions and try and balance out their own bias, but you can only do that when you recognise the bias that you have. Ya I was just using that as an example I loved KOTOR 2 personally but ya. The best thing to do is try a game yourself, but if you can't, find a game reviewer that you know isn't very opinionated.

  4. Opinions aside. Because 3/10 means the game is unplayable not only due to bad design but bugs and a complete failure on multiple fronts. If you are going to give a game such a low score then you really need to explain why. An example... 10 - As a rule all games should start here and then be graded on merits. -1 - No New Game + -1 - No Keymapping -1 - Multiplayer camera is bad Those are my complaints against DS3, at the moment... that sets it at a 7/10. That's passing. But there is more! +1 - I liked the story. Short as it was I was very immersed and at the end... I craved more.
  5. Ya that is sad considering one of the bosses (maybe all I know atleast 1 for sure) has a predetermined drop. If drops are guaranteed it kind of loses the fun. =/
  6. I love how people who have no concept of what actually happened in development can assume that nothing was cut out of the game to make it work on console. It is absolutely ridiculous to make such an assumption with no proof, the game was designed to run on a inferior machine. When a title is designed to run specifically on an inferior platform things are cut, its common sense.
  7. Sacred 2 is a PC game ported to the consoles. You're missing the point. The same amount of data fits onto a disk regardless. So why would features have to be removed to accommodate consoles? Are you familiar with the porting process and its limitations? EDIT: Here let me just end this. Porting isn't what you think it is. Porting is just re-writing the code to work on another system. Most games are made for Xbox, and ported to PS3, thus the quality of the game (frame rate, graphics, sound) might take a hit. But in no way does it limit the quantity of the features in a game.
  8. No it wasn't... I buy computers with my own money thank you. I have had just about every console out there but I mostly play PC games because in my opinion the PC gaming community is much closer nit then any console community. Ventrilo is a great thing! If you are smart when you purchase your PC you don't generally need to upgrade it for atleast 5 years. My last pc I bought 8 years ago and it was the top of the line at the time and just recently stopped running the best graphical games. Since then I bought a new PC and will not need to upgrade it for atleast 5 years. As long as you buy brand n
  9. I have never seen that... There are a ton of details in the game that make it obvious that it was built for console and ported to PC where it should have really been done the other way around.
  10. Sacred 2? Nope multiplayer you shared a co-op screen. ie. not split screen. I know for offline multiplayer you shared one screen.. but online I am not sure about.
  11. NONE of this stuff is acceptable for consoles. There are PSP titles with more robust character ssystems and more features for MP than DS3. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF CONSOLES. There are PSP games that don't have a shared screen in multiuplayer, don't give the host all the loot/gold in MP, and that allow for persistent character saves. PSP GAMES! The consoles are NOT the mother****ing limitation here. I disagree. Please name a over head multiplayer diablo like game for xbox360 or PS3 that does not share an overhead screen. I definitely can't think of any. As it is there are few d
  12. These are game items that really NEED to be changed, many of these things are understandable for console but really should be patched for PC. 1. Removal of Shared Screen for Multiplayer 2. Removal of Shared Gold in Multiplayer (split it like in Diablo) 3. Make an actual character select screen and allow us to play with our character with our gear! 4. Make controls mappable (already know this is happening) These are the main changes that need to be made, and honestly the hardest one is probably number 3. I think everything else should be fairly easy to patch into the PC version, heck
  13. I can't watch youtube from where I am but... on the pc what is the button to turn on breadcrumbs? Didn't even know that was a feature til I saw it in a game review.
  14. We just muted each other so we can use ventrilo without hearing double voices. Pretty easy to do in game.
