Killzone reviewed decent, but there is still an underlyning issue that needs to be adressed.
Are we supposed to believe that the same gaming media who:
●tries to downplay every advantage the PS4 has over the xbone; even went out of their way to claim that a 50-60% advantage in performance for the PS4 meant little, and that 1080p now doesnt matter while implying 720p on xbox is better
●tried to defend Microsoft's grotesque anti-consumer DRM and always online schemes
IS going to give a PS4 game a fair shake and review it fairly? Yeah, im not buying it one bit because im not dumb.
-The same gaming media who rushes to Microsoft's defense at every turn
-The same gaming media who tries to downplay everything Playstation
Can people not put two and two together to get four anymore? This is getting ridiculous
I was reading the IGN review of Killzone.There was a giant PAID AD for RYSE front and center in-between all the text, just distracting.
This means Microsoft paid IGN for that ad. Thats how IGN makes their money. We must understand that ad revenue is how game sites operate. It starts getting into "bribing territory." IGN now "decides" to display a PAID FOR AD of RYSE all over their review of Killzone. How much more blatant can it get? Did the review of Killzone go down a point or half a point as a result of? Very serious question to ponder or ask.
Gamespot and Eurogamer gave Killzone a 7. Joystick and Kotoku panned it. Polygon gave it a 5 which is just insane. But read those "reviews" too. It was just blatant hate, and double standards - criticisms against Killzone that other FPS are much more guilty of yet are never called out on for (*cough* Call of Duty/Battlefield/Halo 4 *cough*) When you look how much effort went into making Killzone, its sad to see how unfailry Guerilla Games is getting treated due to political BS in the gaming media. Makes you sick in the stomach
(BTW Polygon has already been exposed. They were FUNDED by Microsoft and have recieved money from them many times)
Then there is the way Knack is being panned for something its NOT. It was meant to be a simple game to enjoy with your kids etc.
(Even if you look back at most reviews from this gen from the usual suspect sites, you will notice how harsher standards were only ever applied to playstation exclusives. A playstation exclusive was docked points for "flaws" that were other wise ignored in nearly every other game. Was insane. There has been a history of this BS. We cant ignore it. Lets call all of this out for what it is. This needs to be stopped. There needs to be consistenecy across the board)
The same sudden harsher standards better be applied to xbone launch games or else.
When the barebones QTE riddled Ryse gets good reviews just for looking good and being a "showpiece" title, while Killzone- the best looking next gen launch game by miles still gets shunned by critics, THAT will confirm everything and prove there is a agenda in gaming media (against Playstation and for Microsoft)
Are the same gaming "journalists" who penalised a PS4 game for any little flaw they could find, going to suddenly ignore worse flaws in Dead Rising 3 and give it good reviews despite its severe performance issues? That will confirm it too.
Forza is more of the same old -same old shit, but I bet these so called gaming "reviewers" will eat it up because $ tells them to like anything that has the Microsoft name attached to its box.
As gamers we owe it to ourselfes to speak out against this BS. As a gamer of over 15 years it irks me to see whats going on, how Microsoft just buys off everyone and thinks they can buy their problems away. This must be stopped. We must FIGHT Microsoft OFF like we did during the xbone DRM/always online scandles. Do not allow any xbox shills or die-hard xboners to silence you.
And my recommendation to you, any of my fellow gamers is this, dont listen to any of these reviews of PS4 games, If YOU are interested in a PS4 game, rent it- get it, what ever, PLAY it for yourself, enjoy it, and come to your own conclusions
Anyway, these so called reviews arent going to deter me. Dont let it deter you. Still got Killzone and Knack pre-ordered!! Cant wait to play them! Happy Playstation day my fellow gamers! Just 2 more days baby! PS4 is going to be huge! PS4 has PS2 vibes of popularity in the air. Nothing IS STOPPING this PS4 freight trane. Keep trying all you want M$ and gaming media. We the gamers have the power. Youre only going to get exposed further and further;)
