The review scores for Beyond: Two Souls have been varied to say the least. With opinion divided over David Cage's latest, Johnny steps in to sort things out. Warning: contains emotions.

@Azure_Nova I suppose you prefer Call of Duty 6 or 7 or whichever one it is then?

@StarsiderSajun @Azure_Nova Lol no dude I'm not a child, I'm just bored. I actually think it's a good story, but the fact that I can't actually play the game is pretty dumb in my opinion.

@Azure_Nova @StarsiderSajun Ah sorry, I didn't know you actually were a child, I just assumed you were acting like one. My bad kid.

@StarsiderSajun @Azure_Nova The fact that you responded to my comment with that foolishness is stupid.

@Azure_Nova @StarsiderSajun Still, you must understand that just because you don't like a game, doesn't make it stupid. That's a very childish mindset. I don't like games like Call of Duty, but if I go around calling them stupid then my opinion is worth nothing to anyone, just like yours.

@whitejackel Don't use internet exploder. There is something to be said about updating ancient shitty software like IE.

Use chrome, it's much better in every way really.

Lots of people (myself included) hate QTE's and button prompts. It is not that hard to understand why some may hate this.

Like this show. You've got idiotic and troll comments that are fun to take the piss out of garnished with the occasional genuinely witty one. It would be nice though if you could include a few of the weeks most constructive comments too. Perhaps at the end, just to renew our faith in humanity?

Why does Gamespot have a show devoted to smug condescension of internet comments?

Really though, what's the purpose? The fact that they have to read them out in stupid voices even helps in itself to demonstrate how un-interesting a concept the whole thing is.

@Ninja-Hippo because most of the internet commenters are either whiners or wankers. it's all in good fun, if you don't like it don't watch it etc.

@--CryptOrchid-- It's supposed to be a look at the community and how they overract to things. I believe the overall goal is for it to be a look in the mirror at how irrational you may be acting. ( whether you're featured or not) And still be entertaining.

Regardless of how dumb some of these comments are. These are genuine opinions of some. These dumb folks SHOULD be pointed and made an example of. To not be dumb anymore.

But then the dumb just praise the dumb for being pointed out for being dumb. Which in turn encourages them to top their own dumbtitude and dumify the whole community.

Good episode, I liked the fact that Johnny seemed to tone down his smug arrogance. For the first time in recent memory, my desire to punch him in the face has been relinquished.

Reminds me of 'Only God Forgives' and 'Kid A'. Although trust me when I say I am not placing this game even close to the levels on offer with both of those examples.

Like it/hate it, it is important for any piece of entertainment to provoke a response other than a shrug of the shoulder. So, job done in that respect. But Johnny Haircut hit the main point. It is David Cage. Were he perhaps, more unassuming with his ego, the predisposition would not exist. However, it is hard to not want to dislike his work on principal.

Which is unprofessional. Immature. Wrong. So be it.

Speaking of contradictions: Why is it than when I try to make an account using my old email it says 'email address already in use', then when I try to recover my password "that email address is not recognised,"

I think the main problem now is a lot of sheep don't know which score to 'believe' and buy the game based off a review-- as opposed to actually researching the game in full and making an informed decision on their own. Because I myself have found that reviews serve as only the most basic of guides - one needs to watch many reviews and let's plays, to get a 'cold' description of the game's mechanics and systems.

I just don't get why some people always keep saying that the review score is different from Metacritic... what does it matter? Should every reviewer always gather up and discuss what score to give it so that it pleases everyone and not actually care about what they themselves think about the game?

No vids loading, means the damn site is still broken.

Well... I'd be lying if I said I was surprised. GS can change its colors, but it can't change its bugs... or something like that.

I just lol, there is always hating, too low score you get hate, you score high you get hate, you can't escape that and you just need to accept it and make nothing out of it. What we're hearing are only the loudest guy not the majority. Just do what you do and ignore hate.

I know that the GTA 5 review left a very bad taste in Johnny's mouth, but since then Feedbackula has been better. The several episodes before GTA were no where near the standard set by the previous season. But all the episodes after the GTA fiasco have been pretty good.

Personally I feel that Beyond: Two Souls is a pretty interesting story (Then again, I begin to weep every time I see the tough life of the homeless and then they have good things happen to them), it's well.... A David Cage game, and we all know David Cage is more or less either a mad scientist or a genius when it comes to these sort of things (Ala Fahrenheit, that's a popular example)

And I will also dare say that I think this is FAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAR better than The Last of Shizz, because that stealthy fungi apocalypse game is a whole mountain of tripe... In fact I could count better things than that shit

Every time I see Tom McShea's mug on a review, I immediately close the page and look somewhere else. He has been wrong so many times it's not even funny anymore.

Bloody Chumps, Reviews are generally done by an informed, in their perspective field, individual that the company represents. The views might not be supported by that company. I'm not sure about Gamespot, but I think that Tom, the reviewer in this case, is the person who set the 9.0 score. If that is the case, well done and thanks for your educated input. You must have gotten your job for good reasons. If you don't like his review then find one you do agree with and show that one to all of your friends and convince them otherwise. Unlike some people I don't look at reviews for validation, and when a game or movie or whatever else gets a review I don't agree with. I check it out anyway. I also check out the reviews for it to see what the arguments were about in hopes for future media improvement.
