In case your memory isn't serving you right the problem wih UC3 was that lemmings claimed flop despite it's 9.0 score and reaching the current hype (at the time of review). Hilarity, stupidty and rage followed (from both sides really).
Gotta love SW's! :P
And my memory did serve me right because what I am getting at is the overreaction from cows to lemming bait. A simple "lulz 9, lulz flop" ended in a clusterfu*k of threads about how McShea was bias, metacritic was correct, etc.
Like I said, gotta love SW hehe :P
Though personally I dislike how the X1 looks dark as f*ck. I'd rather have the colours less "crisp" then having a difficult time figuring out what the objects look like in the shadows. But that's just me of course.
I see it as a 50/50. If it's a competitive shooter, yeah I don't want some random noob camping a dark corner. But some genres might benefit from it like horror games.
