Aug 25th 2010 10:34PM I am sick of all you kids whining about zombie games. Seriously, nobody whines when a space marine FPS comes out, or if a realstic FPS comes out. The truth is there hasn't been a zombie game done right. It is all on the level of cheesy kill so many zombies with machine guns. A game that doesn't focus on the zombies instead uses them as a plot tool will be the game that gets it right. Dead Rising was on that level, but a game that incorporates survival, LIKE THIS ONE. Will be awesome.
Anyways I think the zombie hatred is just people jumping on the band wagon in hating them. Truth is the zombie game market isn't as oversaturated as WW2, Space Marine, REALISTIC combat FPS genres have become.

Feb 17th 2010 7:17PM Punkrawk Bbob, wow nice summary. FF7 was soooo deeeeep and intelligent. Geez its like the next War and Peace!!! Ok but seriously you are trying to take down a corporation whos ruining the planet, then you find it a super solider is summoning a meteor so you have to stop him. Seriously is this the best they can come up with? This is my point exactly how the story jumps from Shinra to Sepiroth. Why does Sepiroth want to destroy the world in the first place? The game never gives any motive behind the characters. At least in Fallout I know what the motive of the Enclave is power... the brotherhood of steel and your dad are motivated by altruism... the brotherhood outcast our motivated by the desire to claim new technologies. SEE there is depth because I know them and what they stand for... I can't say the same for Sepiroth, or "Cait Sith".
I mean to say this crap is deep is a joke lol.
Feb 16th 2010 12:00PM Japan NEVER buys western games. Because they are bigots. At least when we hate Japanese crap its because its crap, they just hate things games/ consoles just because they are western.
Feb 16th 2010 11:51AM Ok all RPGs have cheezy / cliche stories, but at least you can understand what the hell is going on in the Western RPGs. JRPGs never attempt to explain why a cat is ridding a giant marshmallow and talking to you, they don't overwhelm you with more plot twist than a Shamalan movie on crack, they keep it simple and sweet. I mean can anyone really summarize any Final Fantasy after 6? Yeah I didn't think so.
The truth is Japanese developers are too set in their ways and lack innovation. They never want to try anything new, thats why they still use battle systems, animation, and narrative thats been outdated for a decade.
Feb 16th 2010 11:38AM Yeah and I think Western RPGs usually have better stories than the convoluted crap thats in JRPGS. I mean can anyone seriously summarize the story of your average JRPG? Yeah no one can.
Sep 14th 2009 10:35PM I hate Activision
Sep 8th 2009 2:46PM You know I hate Glen Beck... but I hate people who are 9/11 truthers and "radical communist" I think people who repesent these ideals are weak intellectually. I also hate partisan hacks that blame Van Jones resignation on anyone but him, because he signed the petiton. Get over it.
Sep 5th 2009 4:14PM ... Sounds like they are trying to copy Batman: Arkham Asylum with the see through walls things.
May 4th 2009 8:24PM I think Joystiq is correct in their assessment of why the sales were poor. CNBC doesn't know the intricacies of gaming sales and any "pondering" from them that the series is dead shouldn't be taken seriously.
