Re: Rampage: The Movie

Wow, that looks like garbage. I mean, it looks like an awful movie, but it also just looks bad . I'm not expecting War for the Planet of the Apes here, but you'd think a movie set for release 13 years after the Peter Jackson King Kong might be able to put a half-convincing CG gorilla on the screen.

Re: New Mario Movie by Illumination?

Maybe I would have had more fun with it if it weren't just so gross to look at. You can almost smell every scene; it's like a big ol' foot right in your face. Everything's all dirty and floppy.

Re: New Mario Movie by Illumination?

The Bob Hoskins movie is one of the most unpleasant spectacles I've ever witnessed. No matter how this one ends up turning out, at bare minimum it'll be competently made as a film and have some discernible connection to the actual games.

Re: Alien Colonial Marines (PS3)

One thing that I know happened, even if I couldn't find it in the PS3 patch notes I linked, is that the original release, on top of being tremendously buggy, had ugly, low-resolution textures that made it frequently look like a PS2 game. One of the first updates included a complete overhaul of the t...

Re: Alien Colonial Marines (PS3)

It wasn’t terrible but it was not very good either. I think when we see Alien in the title we automatically assume it will be great like the marvelous Alien Isolation. Alien: Isolation was released a year later. Aliens: Colonial Marines got the reception it did because it was a broken, unfinished g...

Re: Digital Lifespan

Atari Corp was fairly successful after the crash, till the computer market turned to PC clones in the early 90's. And I do believe Atari Games inc was fairly successful in the arcade scene, till that market changed. Yeah, I didn't bother to address those divisions because anyone making arcade machi...

Re: Changing too much or too little?

Back to Call of Duty, when they didn't change anything between games, a minority of their customers complained. When they tried to give it a new theme (futuristic scifi), that same small minority complained about that too. So now they're focused on pleasing the people who actually WANT to be please...

Re: Changing too much or too little?

I'm hearing a lot of "You're wrong, you're wrong, you're wrong," here, but for every thing you say I'm wrong about, you don't provide any suggestions to back them up. So, what kind of things would YOU put into a Call of Duty game to differentiate it from previous Call of Duty games while ...

Re: Digital Lifespan

What book? What did it say caused Atari's downfall? I've always heard Atari failed due to a glut of bad games, often simplified to ET, but that over simplifies things. There were so many problems happening at the same time I have trouble pinning the exact cause down. It wasn't just the crash; it wa...

Re: Changing too much or too little?

They could friggin' put it to bed already. To answer you in a few more words, though... Sure, but it's not like we have Modern Warfare 92 coming out this year. We've got a bunch of different offshoots of CoD, like Black Ops, Future Warfare, and Ghosts. Some of which are better than others sure, but ...
