Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

If you have a problem with anything I said don't hesitate to point it out and explain where you think the fault in my reasoning is. There's no need to resort to snappy one-liners.

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

I usually don't pick someone's post apart point by point like that (well, at least not to the degree I just did), but in this case I found something I thought was horribly wrong in pretty much...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

If that's the case then why does the mod's description read "This mod changes nearly all creatures lists to provide a more static, non leveled, experience."? Perhaps you're thinking of the wrong mod,...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Well, first off I'd like to qualify that having a stupid opinion doesn't mean you're an idiot (*everyone* has stupid opinions, and I'd like to hope not everyone is an idiot), so no, even if your...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

There's nothing at all in the game that comes close to the 'intelligence' that the AI displayed in that demo, don't delude yourself. The level of scripting that would be required to make that...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

IRT: Adam

So in that case you've slightly revised your situation so that both games offer equal experiences *before* hype is factored in instead of afterwards? You seem to have a bit of an awkward...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Here, I'll explain myself better. Hype creates expectations. Expectations that are exceeded positively effect enjoyment of a thing, while the opposite holds true for expectations that are not met. I...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Argh, you're right. For some reason I thought you we're arguing that there were no objective or quantitative elements involved *at all* in the process of reviewing a game, but re-reading your post I...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

I agree partially with that statement. However, I think we have to be careful in defining a review as a totally subjective and qualitative opinion piece lest people take that chain of thought one...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

I think that the inherit ambiguity behind game rankings is what has led GC to shy away from them in the first place. There are *a lot* of factors that are hard to reconcile. To name a few...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

In your question you assumed that beating or failing to live up to hype doesn't impact the game experience, hence "if Game A surpasses its hype should it necessarily be given a higher score even...

That's sound reasoning. Perhaps GC should adopt this methodology.

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

In order to get the score to show I had to highlight the text at the end of the article. Maybe it's a Firefox thing?

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Dan, I've been thinking about how your review talked about judging a game by it's marketing and and my first reaction was "That's not right!"

And then I thought about it a bit more. If a game...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Well, I'm wondering how a game that doesn't even have proper dialog trees (something that Bethesda has admitted to during the development of Fallout 3) can be described as having 'well-written...

Re: New Review Posted: Halo 3

Funny shit indeed.

On the other hand, if a reviewer does have an opinion he had better back it up objectively and consider both sides of the coin equally. Otherwise well, you're about as well off...
