I didn't really follow Van Ord's work aside from his reviews, though I can easily say he always managed to be objective despite his personal feelings and that must certainly be acknowledged. Everytime I read one of his reviews, I knew that despite all the criticisms or compliments, the score would be fair. Probably the guy that I most agree with when it comes to giving scores.

For that, I believe GameSpot loses one of their best (if not the best) reviewers. The saddest loss since the departure of Jane Douglas (don't you dare leave us anytime soon, O'Dwyer). Good luck, Kevin, and godspeed.

Are these guys actually taking this game seriously? Seriously, go talk to O'Dwyer, he'll teach you how to make videos about Hatoful Boyfriend.

@nomadsalt: The latter it is then. Though at least I can write properly and don't mix up assertive and conditional sentences. I see that you clearly didn't take my advice and didn't look it up, but a sentence "if... I would..." isn't the same as "I will...". Besides, who's the real twat - the one that knows how to write or the one who completely distorts what other people said just to look for some attention?

@nomadsalt: "Breath", not "breathe". Jesus, did you even go to school? Or are you one of those guys with "learning difficulties"?

@nomadsalt: I see you don't understand the concept of conditional sentences. I highly suggest you look it up, it's quite useful. Usually it is taught in school though, I take it you probably skipped school that day.

@Keitha313: I agree. I'm still playing on PS3 so since I don't pay I feel like I shouldn't complain. Though if I had a PS4 and paid for the service, I'd be properly pissed off that it goes offline every now and then.

@BradBurns: I never said it was. I just said the UK had, in some areas of business, a distribution of market share among companies closer to what it is like in the US. For example, like in the US, the Xbox traditionally does better in UK than it does in the rest of Europe. Doesn't mean that it sells as much consoles in both countries, it means that it sells about the same percentage in comparison to total consoles sales, in broad terms.

I'm actually trying quite hard to figure out just how you came to the conslusion that I said that Britain's market size is similar to the American. Maybe you've mistaken "market size" with "market share", which are totally different concepts.

@Hurvl: I'm guessing mainland Europe is all the countries in Europe excluding the UK and Ireland. Those two countries often have a completely different market share than the rest of Europe in several areas of business (often closer to the US profile), so they are usually referred to independently from the rest of Europe.

In this particular case, Xbox market share is generally higher in UK and Ireland than it is in the rest of Europe.

I just hope they are giving at least as much importance to gameplay as they are giving to graphics.

@Earthen80: They haven't touched the tuner culture in years. The last NFS entries were all using stock super cars, as most of the other relevant titles in the genre. There hasn't been any decent racing game that is based upon the tuner culture in recent memory. I, for one, am quite excited about this.
