Tomodachi Life Review: y u do dis, gs?

#1 Posted by freedomfreak (38140 posts) -

As we all know, GS likes to keep politics out of gaming. And with Tomodachi Life, they decided to keep it that way.

But not really.

Final Score: 7

The good:

  • Wonderfully weird
  • Charming character animations and visuals
  • As much fun to mess with your Miis as it is to care for them
  • Some truly laugh-out-loud moments

The bad:

  • ...but the novelty soon wears off
  • Weak character development
  • Prohibits the gay community from fitting in

There we go. That's what we were waiting for.

Yup. Who knew that GS would jump on this controversial matter. As you might imagine, the comment section is already lighting up.

Thoughts on this? Interested in the game?

At least it wasn't Carolyn Petit, automatic 4/10

This game sounds profoundly misogynistic.

I don´t see that quote on the negatives section nor anyone saying anything in the comments,barely any of them at this point.

TSHBO.

And yeah, GS likes to jump on these things for some reason. I do agree that it was dumb by Nintendo to not even allow a patch to change the current predicament, but it shouldn't really influence the critical score AS A GAME.

#6 Posted by PrincessGomez92 (3218 posts) -

This game is just offensive. Ffs, Nintendo.

#7 Posted by PurpleMan5000 (6574 posts) -

The idea is just amazing. Somebody should steal it and make an online version where you can type whatever you want and the game reads it in a robot voice to other players.

are you sure it's not TGHBO?

@ladyblue: Nope. TSHBO. As it only really affects sheep (regardless of gender or sexual preferences) :P

I think TC wants to see how many people reply without reading the actual review.

Gamespot, defenders of gay rights.

I am just sickened by this. I may have to go beat a homeless person down to relieve my frustration.

Lel no one reads the actual shit.

#19 Edited by spike6958 (4650 posts) -

Who actually cares. From everything I've seen the game looks like garbage anyway, 7 is much higher than I'd have expected it to score.

#20 Posted by Blabadon (25184 posts) -

Bravo.

#21 Posted by SolidGame_basic (16006 posts) -

um, he's shitting you guys.. they didn't actually write that

#22 Edited by 001011000101101 (3913 posts) -

This game sounds profoundly misogynistic.

Made me laugh way more than it should. Well played.

#23 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (24215 posts) -

Gotta get this

Too trusting. Never again.

#25 Edited by pelvist (4464 posts) -

Its all about the gay, or not since it doesnt say that.

#26 Posted by UnbiasedPoster (628 posts) -

  • Prohibits the gay community from fitting in

That's not actually part of the review. Or if it was, it was (wisely) edited out.

TC was lying.

Freedomfreak is a bad troll and he should feel bad.

I found this review to be politically muddled and profoundly misogynistic

#31 Edited by jg4xchamp (46604 posts) -

It's not like that criticism is false or imaginary? But sure like the GTA 5 review, there is a sever lack of sincerity to some of these criticisms.

Edit: you're a dick Lto, I THOUGHT WE WERE FRIENDS!!

#32 Posted by santoron (7416 posts) -

Funny stuff

#33 Posted by DJ-Lafleur (34075 posts) -

In wonder if they would have added that negative before that whole controversy happened...

#34 Posted by bbkkristian (14725 posts) -

Bad freedomfreak.

I almost fell for it, I'm too gullible!

#38 Posted by MirkoS77 (6838 posts) -

I did fall for it.

Well played, good sir. Still, it's a sad testament to GS considering how many people immediately bought into it without a moment's hesitation.

Or, to the media. Because they pull off crap like this every once in a while. And I don't want to click it to verify because they would get money out of it.

#41 Posted by Heirren (15961 posts) -

So every game must be designed for every person out there?

#42 Posted by yokofox33 (28893 posts) -

I was gonna get the game since I have enough Eshop credit, but I thought better of it. I probably wouldn't play it much and I have other games more deserving of my attention right now. Kirby Triple Deluxe is quite an awesome game.

#43 Posted by Jeager_Titan (911 posts) -

Liar.

#44 Posted by WitIsWisdom (3633 posts) -

How would something in a game prohibit any kind of community from fitting in... this reminds me of the bus seen in Forrest Gump... "can't sit here"... "seats taken".... lol

#45 Posted by bezza2011 (2193 posts) -

:S I don't get it, it says nothing about the last negative, you've added it on, it got a 7/10 it's a good game, what's the problem :S

#46 Posted by DocSanchez (1393 posts) -

The reason people fell for this one is because it has become very realistic. Such idiotic social justice warrior sentiments have been creeping in to the site for some time by the morons who don't realise this isn't their irrelevant tumblr whine site. It's for video games.
