Fairwell Gamespot May Be Goodbye But "Lest We Forget"

by on

The End

For A long battle I have fought my eyesight is nearly gone and I have lost all hope, I do not know if I will return

to Gamespot, the news was not good, Nurologists and pain await me and I have no joy in gaming.

I have spent many years here, and may return, I enjoy some time on steam and my PS3 and the few that know me

may see me there as long as my sight holds out.

To those that know me remember, I dont know if my illness will claim me but pray if you can or think of me once and hope, maybe some off chance I will be well and see again.

Thank you Gamespot for years of joy, I will look in on gamespot now and again but I wont be posting, so I guess this is my last post until im well or well my last post...

The Issue Of DLC

by on

Replaying LA Noire and Deus Ex Human Evolution I thought of the idea that companies are taking out content and selling them as DLC. At first I thought that the idea of them doing this was outragous, I'm a traditional gamer, 40 to 50 hours are norms, maybe because I stayed with RPGs since I was a tot in the 1980s where that was the norm, but it has its advantages.

First off, people have complained that games are getting to long, so taking out content solves a problem and adds to content when you download dlc, I have to admit that la noire and deus ex are long games, but Im more in favor of companies creating new content dlc and not taking away from a product. La Noire is a example, if you didnt have the dlc downloaded, the narration of character comments dont make sense, they talk about poeple you never met, or introduce people you neve heard of thus breaking with the story.

Deus ex lies to its fan base by claiming that the dlc was created from scratch, that may be true but its to well done, voice acting and intergrated into the game to be added new dlc. again i dont like that.

I would rather have extra missions, extra weapons (although I feel kinda like im cheating for some reason) then have creators take away from games.

I guess thats all, just a rant, good to write something after so long.

AMC the walking dead this week Possible SPOILER

by on

Hi all

being a strong follower of the comic, i was shocked at the ending to AMC the walking dead.......considering the comic is still going and im still reading the end of the walking deads main season was a shocker. I think one of the main reasons its a shocker is one, the departure from the comic book script, what happens in the book may not happen in the show, second point is the blow to self security, i was very sad and upset by the ending and could relate and was sure that it would have been a postive outcome, sadlly im posting this in a way not to spoil the ending.........but wow.

10 out of 10, anyone get a chance, watch the walking dead if you missed it.........

im bummed out, now it leaves me questions into the final moments and how alone the situation was for the person........

hi all

the gamespot reivew how i hate you and playfire instead of ratpr

by on

gamespot you made me lose faith in you, any site that gives deus ex HR 8.5 but gives a shallow story driven shooter of gears 0.5 loses all respect of me, after all these years i am starting to think the members of giant bomb were right to leave gamespot....every respectable website from IGN to gameinformer etc gave it 9.0 or above yet you give deus ex 8.5.........and gears 3 9.5...how can i regain trust, you cant because gamespot doesnt care what it think, i have proof and i cant accuse gamespot of taking money, but since CBS took over i seen CAPS on review scores, games that should get lower scores like starcraft 2 should have been 9. yet a game that is unique, looks great, and is designed for what is for is limited at 8.5......not even worth a 9?

i feel sad because when kasavan was on doing reviews back in the day you knew the reviews you were getting where honest, i general still trust kevin v reviews but reviews from the overal site i dont trust anymore. i inplore you all to look at metacritic for all games and compare scores

on a side not, anyone notice that gamespot replaced rapt with playfire http://fuse.gamespot.com/registration/playfire

lol so i guess they didnt like the terms of raptr? i feel less trusting of the website of the company then ratpr, i rather trust a orange dino then two stoned looking people and a semi scetch site.
