Sonic Lost World tanking in reviews - did SEGA fail again?

I just want to clarify what I mean by complete disaster. I actually meant that from Sega's end, particularly their business and marketing.  I currently work in marketing research, so I tend to see things through that lens.  I probably should have clarified that when I used that phrase, sor...

Sonic Lost World tanking in reviews - did SEGA fail again?

[QUOTE=darkrage6]Only 6 of the Metacritic reviews were "really poor" though, which isn't a whole lot.[/QUOTE]<br /><br />It has a 63 percent on MetaCritic. With the way game reviewers inflate scores (maybe due to advertisers), a 63% can't seen as anything but a complete disaster.  I don't know ...

Best mindless first person shooters

Serious Sam The first encounter is great, but the second encounter is even better, because it has better levels and a chainsaw and flamethrower!  Those games are so underrated.  Serious Sam first and second encounter are the greatest "Doom Clones" ever made in my opinion.

Your Current System of Choice?

I'm guessing right now my system of choice is the PC.  I just upgraded I've been playing it a lot lately.    Lots of game for cheap during the Steam sales or humble bundles.   I will probably keep on the PC and wait a bit on the new consoles. It has a Radeon 7970 HD in it, s...

Sonic Lost World tanking in reviews - did SEGA fail again?

I was looking forward to this game because of the awesome trailers.   Sonic seemed to be on a comeback, and I thought his streak of terrible games was over.  This is what I get for looking forward to a sonic game, though.  Most of the reviews I read are complaining that the contr...

Playstation Vs. Nintendo 64

I love the N64 vs PS1 era, because I can't think of any other "console war" where the participants were so completely different.  Not even the SNES vs Genesis era.<br /><br />The n64 had much better graphics, 4 controller ports, but much less storage.  As a result, you got less FMV (I'm ok...

Is this new Steam controller the worst controller ever?

http://store.steampowered.com/livingroom/SteamController/<br /><br /><br />Go here to read about it.  Valve is making a controller that will apparently be the main controller of its "steambox" console coming up. I've been intrigued by the steambox, seeing how Valve plans to connect PC gaming to...

Nintendo - NEW PRICING models - with Wii Sports and Wii Fit,

I am not a fan of this.  I am really sad that Nintendo is starting to go the microtransactions and DLC route.  I was hoping that the limited harddrive space of the Wii U would force Nintendo to stay disc based, but I was wrong.  I was ok with the Luigi DLC early this year because they...

Ethics of Downloads

I find it hard to feel guilty downloading a magazine that is defunct and isn't being sold through any 1st party channels.  Its not like anyone is actually losing anything by it.  Its kind of hard to even make the "potential lost sale" argument when the magazine isn't even for sale.  S...

Nintendo 2DS.... 2D

I can understand Nintendo wanting to appeal to a younger crowd.  However, this thing will have the big clunkyness of a tablet, with out a tablet's huge impressive screen.   My guess is that parents who are worried about kids handling a 3ds, will just buy a tablet instead.  After ...
