Problem with Metacritic

I'm one of those people who hate Metacritic but often use them as a reference just to get a general idea of review trends and as links to other sites. Of course, it's also a reference for media other than video games. I've always felt their weighted metascore was not a good indication of true review...

Re: Another reason to hate the digital age

Someone congratulate me. My game finally downloaded after 5+ days of 24/7 downloading. I will continue to buy some smaller games digitally but this is definitely the last time I will download something like this.

Another reason to hate the digital age

I purchased the Call of Duty Infinite Warfare Legacy Edition over the Black Friday weekend sale for $55 figuring I did want to play Infinite Warfare (IW) so I was basically getting a $4 discount as well as Modern Warfare (MW) Remastered for ‘free’. As many people know, IW came on a physical disk and...

Re: A discussion on Microsoft/Nintendo's lack of confidences in the Xbox One/Wii U, and the future of exclusives?

I'm torn between opinions on the Xbox One/Windows 10 issue. Personally, I have a Windows 10 laptop and while it has reasonable specs, there is no way it will run any of the modern graphics heavy game such as Forza Horizon 3, Gears of War, and others. I also wouldn't want to play these types of games...

Re: Beautiful/emotional songs that were popular during your childhood

Cat's in the Cradle (1975) by Harry Chapin will always be one of the most emotional songs ever written. Also, Us and Them (1973) by Pink Floyd. I feel old now.

Re: Proof that Metacritic/Rotten Tomatoes is useless!

As long as people/websites have an agenda, no place on the internet is safe from bias. Both professional and user reviews are fast becoming a joke. I'm not as familiar with Rotten Tomatoes but the weighting factor that Metacritic uses also seems very flawed. The combination of biased reviews and a w...

Re: 2016/12/11: Playstation 4: Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, Titanfall 2

I have, and just completed, this game for Xbox One and didn't experience any crashes. I agree it is one of the better games this year. I really enjoyed the time travel level, the 'house building' level and the titan battle levels but found some of the wall running very difficult and frustrating at t...
