    You must be a riot at dinner parties.

    As for the game, I may write a mini-review after I beat it.

    The weirdest thing is that many posters seem to assume that they get blacklisted because they write low quality reviews just because they got blacklisted by many publishers.

    Anyway, this business is so dirty that there's no point in buying games any more.

    I hope that's not sarcastic...

    Anyway, I watched the PRESS X TO JASON thing. LULZ all over. Why do reviewers put up with this crap anyway? At least I can call Call of Duty: Glitch Warfare 2 a GAME.

    Kid scares me. Sounds like he's some sort of cyborg.

    I've read comments that actually say this game has great voice acting. This kind of stuff really makes you scratch your head.

    Think of it this way: without good voice acting, the game would have no moral right to exist.

    I may not have played the game, but that lady has very dull surprise that her son just ran off (If he did that, I would've spanked him till he couldn't sit for scaring the hell out of me) and the kid sounds like a robot (and what 10-year old wants a balloon that bad?), so I'm not believing that.

    Most 10-year olds want to buy the next CoD nowadays, not a frickin' balloon.

    How's that make a freaking difference? The reaction is still the same. Maybe the game is set 10 years ago when kids didn't all have an XBAWKS?

    The outcomes in that video don't vary. Thug leaves and the next scene the character talks to the girl.

    That video is hilarious. They prove the exact opposite of what they set out to prove. It really is just a series of QTEs. What's more, you no longer even have to win the QTE and you will still get the same outcome as if you had won! Current-gen indeed.

    Not that Dragon Lair, tard. The good one
    (so, errr, the first one he shows, not the second)

    What?

    The atmosphere and graphics look good (unlike in the X to Jason scene) and the idea of not failing but rather progressing differently is good (although of no consequence here, as the scenes ends the same regardless).

    But Frith the gameplay looks retarded. Essentially, you're just playing Bop It! while a cinematic plays. That's idiotic.

    indeed. I can't believe people are falling for that bullshit.

    the only good thing I've seen about this game is the scene where the player has to cut his finger off. it was suspenseful and it seemed like you at least had a couple of different choices on how to do it. but did it look like good gameplay? hardly.

    I played the first part of the demo (up to the fight in that video) and it was terrible, surprise, surprise. The "game" plays itself up until you get to a certain part in which a certain button press is needed, as in collapsing against a wall and using your inhaler to continue. I'm almost tempted to rent this to see just how little "player" input is needed.

    Hey, there's games called "visual novels" out there. They include reading the story, and participating at forks in the story. Minimal input, maximum entertainment.

    I don't see how the amount of player input into the game is inherently a good or a bad thing. It's just a genre difference.

    Granted, the game's story and atmosphere needs to be fucking awesome to pull it off, and few can, but they're amazing when they do. At this point I have seen too little of the game to decide if it's a worthy attempt.
