Re: Sudden surge of spam

Drastic measures need to be taken. I had to scroll through a whole lot of spam just to see this... And Phoenix posted about an hour ago.

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

This is more showing of developer's immaturity, if they honestly think holding back reviews till their games actually come out... 1. Have game developers given up on trying their very best to make good games? Reviewers aren't heartless monsters out to destroy your game with no mercy (there are a few...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

As a developer, if you're scared of someone writing bad things about your games, you must not be very confident in your game making ability. Bethesda withholding games from reviewers makes them look pretty bad, if they actually made the game really well, they shouldn't have to worry about negative r...

Re: Big Idea, but hard to make - Bow and Arrows

(This post was meant to be posted awhile ago) ... But here it is!* I like how some people criticized the idea of Bow and arrow. That it would never be in the vanilla game. People would say it would ruin the melee combat system, etc. - And i agree. It could spoil the whole combat system and the game...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

I really have nothing else to add, very well said. I really can't think of anything else to mention or question at this moment, (though I might in about a day or so when I've had time to think about it). Well done. *bows* EDIT: I thought of something, I found a great article today that explains why ...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

In the very example you agree with, the sexualization would lower the interest rating, because the reviewer finds that some parts in the game detract from the fun, and the gameplay, and the visuals. Ahhh, now I see what you're saying and where you were getting at, forgive me for not recognizing tha...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

I think you're misunderstanding what I'm trying to say, sorry if I didn't come off clearly. I'm not criticizing game review as a whole, I LOVE game reviews, I watch Zero Punctuation and a good many other game reviews. I'm not criticizing the way games are reviewed. I'm criticizing what THIS particul...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

Now we're talking 'moral subjects'. Do you mean things like "if I just follow orders, am I guilty or is the guilt my commander's"? About stuff like those Bioshock games gave, where player has to choose between good or bad action? What if a game has built-in marketing, e.g. coca-cola heals you and v...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

Well, actually, yes. Gamers come to reviewers to see about a certain game, to see if it's a game they would enjoy playing, they might even visit multiple game review websites to see the differing opinions on the game. The reviewers personal feelings on a moral subject shouldn't effect the score, bec...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

I've found a problem in that: there's no objective review score. If there was, every score of a given game is the same. That would IMO be bad. Ok, then what if all review sites had a unified scoring system with X points for graphics, Y for fun, Z for how well it compares to competition etc? Are any...

Re: Polygon gives Beyonetta 2 a 7.5 because of sexualization

I think what EPR89 is trying to say is that, a reviewers personal world views should not effect the score of a game. For instance, if a game's story centered around two men who are married, and the reviewer took points off for homosexuality, that would stir up all kinds of trouble. EPR is saying tha...
