  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic So why console exclusives are flopping so hard ?No trolling. on the System Wars board

    It's down to business practices. It seems that Consolites have been buying garbage (ie DLC ) for so long that now publishes/devs believe they can simply sell a game based on marketing. Destiny is pro...

    @k3ck said: @ShimmerMan: Ecstatica isn't horror.Of course it is. It's one of the first survival horror games. If Ecstatica is not horror than you're stating neither is Alone in the Dark or Resident E...

    I remember these games being pants. If you want a good old-school horror game play Ecstatica 1&2.

    Atari Jaguar..... only j.k. Although the Jaguar was a flop I did in fact own one and it was the video game system which got me into PC gaming. I played Doom 1 and Syndicate on the Atari Jaguar and fro...

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic Is the PS4 a similar leap in tech as the PS2 was?. on the System Wars board

    it's not as big of a leap. The advances in gaming technology has been stagnant for a while now. This is mostly down to the industry and how it has changed from being a modern technological entertainm...

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic "Why Dota Sucks" - A dismemberment of the Dota genre. on the System Wars board

    I digress... The popularity of "MOBA"'s as a genre is just a sign and titillation of the downfall of the modern day PC gaymer. When once the PC gamer was a more discerning user.. in fact you could st...

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic I hope the witcher 3 is better than 2. on the The Witcher 3 Forum board

    I'm not counting on TW3 being good.. Mainly because It's CDprojeckt's FIRST open world game and they seem to not be competent at creating good combat systems for their games. Even the story I have not...

    This game has the monotone of a cartoon for 8 year old children.

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic HDTV vs Monitor. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    HDTV's = post processing and more input delay.Monitors have less post processing and a better picture when running on native resolution.

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic Ubisoft didn't pay enough attention to details in WatchDogs?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    Yeah well I stated this game would be a flop and imo it is a flop. Ubisoft are not very good developers. Some of their games are passable (such as black flag). But all of them are soul-less and lack ...

  • ShimmerMan rated Killer Is Dead a score of 8.
  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic Why play Watch Dogs?. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    It looks like a flop to me. I haven't seen anything from the games footage which looks interesting. GTA has the comical gangster sub theme to keep the series entertaining, prostitutes, guns, ak47, d...

    Don't pay money for alpha products. And not even beta products. Especially not games from small development teams where there's no guarantee you'll see a finished product before you end up becoming t...

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic TES:O review: angry joe: shameful display. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    People need to stop defending slap and dash MMORPG's which follow the very tired (and old) Everquest formula. In my opinion a MMORPG in this day and age shouldn't even have Quests. The Quests always a...

  • ShimmerMan posted a message in the forum topic Tell me why my PC build sucks.. on the PC & Mac Discussion board

    580GTX SLI is a bad idea. Two old GPUs and sli/crossfire = microstutter and incompatability issues. Just buy one good GPU and save yourself the hassle.Playing on a 50 inch HDTV is going to cause crap ...
