    I'll set a couple arguments in favor of this game and its developer. Hold on to your pants, it's a long read.If you take a peek at my profile, you'll notice I reviewed E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy, and ga...

    @realguitarhero5: You're right, of course. But the article should have mentioned those too, in order to make the point of "a trend". As it is, is not clear if it's industry wide or just UbiSoft.And I'...

    @itchyflop: Well, you could always argue that war is never an enjoyable experience xDMore seriously though, I think it depends on what kind of game you're making. Any trawl through trenches can be enj...

    @theTOBSTERRR: I think it has nothing to do with capturing the experience, it's more about the aesthetics. The market is crowded with modern-day or futuristic shooters, so one that goes to WWI is a we...

    It's a great article, as usual Zorine. But that title is terribly dumb.

    @abcdefgabcdefgz: Yeah, I know all that. There's also the fact that id Tech is OpenGL based, and it doesn't get updated/has such technologic leaps as DirectX. Still, is like seeing one of your lifetim...

  • spectralmerc posted a message on the post Doom Review in Progress.

    I've been having loads of fun, and consider Doom an excellent game. However, there are some things that nag me from the overall experience, from an individual point of view.The first is seeing id Sof...

    So, the ad loads instantaneously, but your video freezes? Get your s**t together Gamespot.

  • spectralmerc posted a message on the post Devilian Review.

    @maneljoao: Feels as if no one read the review. It says very clearly that the problem is not the objectification per se (because, for instance, Tera pulls it off nicely because it feels coherent from ...

    Well, it looks like Activision finally delivered on the payouts to the press. Not a week ago Gamespot was dissing the game because it was too same-y, and how that turned the franchise stale. Now, we'...
