I want nothing to do with this site if I am censored. That's about it.
00Joseph00's forum posts
GameSpot is supposed to reflect their opinions onto us when reviewing a game; not only telling us what their opinion of it was, but also predicting how WE would feel about the game after playing it. If they're here to tell us how they feel only, that's pretty shallow. Depth is professionalism. Their score is definitely supposed to support our opinion on the game.
In other words, I don't go onto GameSpot thinking "I wonder if Zelda: Twilight Princess is everything [GameSpot editor] wants in a game or hates in a game." I go on thinking at least "Will I like it if I play it? Does his opinion reflect how I would or could feel?"
To sum it up, GameSpot is guaranteeing 6.5 out of 10 on this product, Halo Wars. I guarantee you from the overall feelings on this game that 6.5 is a nincompoop's judgment of how everyone else feels about this product.
Purchased The Orange Box.
Half-Life 2; Node graph out of date...rebuilding, AI Disabled.
Platform: Windows Vista 64-bit (didn't affect the game when using my friend's account)
I just bought The Orange Box on the PC a couple days ago. After playing Half-Life 2 on my friend's account (on this same computer) I decided to buy it for myself, entered in the product key, and Half-Life 2 starts up with "Node graph out of date.... rebuilding" and then it shows "AI Disabled" on the in game screen. I've tried countless methods to go into the files myself and undo the AI Disabled thing. I checked to see if any of the other games wouldn't work; Episode 1 + 2 both work flawlessly thank friggin gosh, as does Portal and Team Fortress 2.
I can assure you the game isn't cracked or anything, maybe it thinks it was cracked because I went from using my friend's Steam to my own? But I entered the product key in, and reentered multiple times just to make sure.
Am I SOL unless I can get Valve to respond to my multiple complaints?
Yeah, I liked it when GameSpot had a strict reviewing system. Now I definitely get a few second opinions before I spend money on a game... never used to be that way >.>
And Shigeru Miyamoto is a genius.
