  • Riprock posted a message on the post All of GameSpot's 10/10 Review Scores.

    @megagood2345: You're right. The same problem exists with movie and TV awards, music awards, and Rotten Tomatoes, to name a few. But it truly becomes a problem when we stop using our own discernment a...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post What's up with GameSpot's reviews?.

    @streamline: I agree that there would be problems changing things (and not align with other sites), but that doesn't diminish the fact that the rating system (for GameSpot and most other sites) is BRO...

    @Brakkyn: Right on. Good quote!

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Square Enix Talks About Embracing "Games As A Service" Model.

    @nurnberg: Activision is EVIL. We have know it for quite some time. Why do we forget it so easily and keep letting them in the door with their empty promises, when they only care about the next cash g...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Square Enix Talks About Embracing "Games As A Service" Model.

    Time to hold a memorial service and begin the long mourning process, for the golden days of gaming are now truly behind us. With a focus primarily on multiplayer games (mostly for monetary reasons) we...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post What's up with GameSpot's reviews?.

    There are serious flaws in your system (and I am sure there are others beyond what I mention)... Basically a game has to receive a score of at least 7.0 to be truly considered any good (ok, 6.5 may be...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Activision On What Destiny 1 Failed To Do.

    The article gets it WRONG and Activision is deluded. The original release of Destiny had little to do with enough new content. It was about a game that had great shooting mechanics, an interesting sto...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post E3 2017: Every Game From E3 That's Coming In 2017.

    This list is missing a couple of critical pieces of information. Each game ought to indicate on which platforms it is releasing on and what it's release date is (if known). Without this, the list is n...

    @apieceoftoast: Great Pink Floyd reference. But I am an adult now and will eat my pudding regardless of Activision's abusive ways.

  • Riprock posted a message on the post More Call Of Duty: WW2 Multiplayer Details Revealed.

    I am no longer a fan of the COD franchise. Lost faith in Activision long ago - still remember what they did to Jason West and Vince Zampella (not to mention Guitar Hero) and they still release too ma...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Call Of Duty: WW2 Release Date, First Details, And Beta Revealed.

    I have been burned out with the COD franchise. Nonetheless, I am somewhat intrigued with this game, but they really have to deliver for me to come back to this series. Otherwise COD titles will remain...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post For Honor Update Arrives, As Fixes Promised For Matchmaking Issues.

    Ubisoft is making it too much of a habit of releasing a game that is not finished and does not have enough content and diversity for gamers - a distinctively bad trend. Rainbow 6 Siege suffered sever...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Xbox One Console-Exclusives Confirmed for 2017.

    @Jdzspace: I agree. Although there are titles in this list that will be fun to play for various people, many are smaller independent or arcade-type games. And a few (as you say) are legacy games. Not...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post All The Xbox Game Pass Titles Right Now.

    @bosay831: I agree. Microsoft is definitely not the only one (and I allude to this in part in my paragraph about how various software developers are moving to the subscription model), but the main art...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post All The Xbox Game Pass Titles Right Now.

    Personally I don't like this idea one bit.I don't like Xbox Game Pass for much the same reasons I don't like EA's service (and will NEVER pay for such a thing). I try to obtain games that I like and w...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post GS News - Fallout 4 More Successful Than Skyrim; More Xbox One Exclusives!.

    A few things (re. Fallout 4 vs Skyrim):1. Congratulation to Bethesda Studios for creating a couple of great games that sold well.2. It doesn't matter which sold more - this is just marketing hype.3....

  • Riprock posted a message on the post PS4 Pro Is "Half-Assed," Project Scorpio "A Full-Blown Next-Gen Machine," Says Dev.

    Two things.(1) The Media and Game Review websites like to perpetuate the console wars and stir up trouble whenever they can.(2) The impression is console generations may be over and we are now into ...

    Some good memories there. Too bad Activision has driven this franchise into the grave.

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Skyrim Composer Warns Fans to Be "Wary" of That New Concert.

    @ProtossRushX: There appears to be a war in the gaming industry. The game developer contracts the musical score to be written and they claim to own it, since the work was under contract (all rights re...

  • Riprock posted a message on the post Skyrim Composer Warns Fans to Be "Wary" of That New Concert.

    On one hand Jeremy Soule has a very good point, particularly since the score is transcribed. On the other hand, orchestras and various musicians have played music written by others (from movies, TV sh...
