Couldn't care less about reviews! Some of my favourite games have been poorly reviewed. It's my opninion that matters when I play a game.

@Astro thats my feeling as well. Its a marmite game it till get 8s maybe a 9 of some people but it will also get 3 and 4s.

Posted on 18 Nov 2013 09:38:27 GMT
I think we'll soon get some proper reviews off Forumites that are getting the day one editions.

Personally I am blooming Jealous LOL

WhatNow says:
Abuse of the add to discussion post is just daft. You may be Sony fans but why down vote the original topic? I made the PS4 as well and no one downvoted that.

MintFox says:
No doubt some people will enjoy it. I enjoy ancient history so I would probably get something out of it myself but when you look at recent games with release day embargos (Duke Nukem, AvP etc) it doesn't look good.

Posted on 18 Nov 2013 10:04:52 GMT
I am most curious (and jelous of XB1 owners) about Killer Instinct - interesting game with a great sounding FTP model too. Dead Rising looked great at E3 so can't fail imo. Could take or leave Ryse but nothing wrong with a bit of release day bling I suppose.

Posted on 18 Nov 2013 10:22:23 GMT
My guesses for Metacritic scores:

Dead Rising 3 - 75
Killer Instinct - 78
LocoCycle - 78
Crimson Dragon - 68
Powerstar Golf - 65
Zoo Tycoon - 80
Forza Motorsport 5 - 82
Ryse: Son of Rome - 61

Because the place is full of Sony fanboys.

I am on that one discussing things becuase i am interested in both. But all this downvoting nonsense is just that.

And there is the evidence as 3 Fanboys down vote me for saying it was them who downvoted.

My irony meter just exploded

Zoo Tycoon is the one I wish I had, Damn you Zoo Tycoon owners

In reply to an earlier post on 18 Nov 2013 10:43:11 GMT
And Dan gets an upvote for suggesting conservative scores.

Scientifically the evidence is overwhelming.

Conclusion, there are a bunch of idiots on these forums.

Thanks Ryan for stating the truth, upvote for you!

These are just some guesses of what I read about the games and what I played and saw at the Eurogamer Expo.

DR3 seems like it suffers from framerate issues, so this should bring the score down. Forza 5 I played at the expo and it's good, but from a distance you can't differentiate from Forza 4, my wife, who is not a gamer, commented that she couldn't see the difference between Forza 5 and the game I always play at home. And Forza 5 will have less than half cars, half number of tracks and a very expensive DLC plan.

My misses couldn't see the difference between a ps1 and a ps4 game.

In DR3 the framerate slows a bit when there are 100's of Zombies on screen at once being slaughtered by you in a hybrid vehicle chainsaw creation you have made and are driving it wearing full a evening gown and heals - that sounds like a fair trade off to me!

In fairness Cam, votes don't actually mean anything anyway. Some people got quite emotional in the PS4 Amazon thread judging by the rampant down voting of pretty much everyone's comment in that thread lol.

In reply to an earlier post on 18 Nov 2013 11:34:06 GMT
ITs all just daft and pointless and very childish IMO,

But as you say it does not make any difference does it, so let them vent their emotional problems and feel good about themselves.

Downvoting commencing,

Lets see if I can beat 10 downvotes by using this one inflammatory line.

I prefer Xbox to Sony.

Seriously dude, don't take it personally. It's happening to everyone on one topic or another. It's either someone with multiple accounts with too much time on his or her hands, or you've offended someone who doesn't want to speak up, regardless, just ignore.

Or people are just doing it because they know your taking it too seriously and they find that amusing.

Matthew says:
Dunno, just seen on quite a few threads a fair few people have been marked down multiple times by someone. I don't think he's being targeted by anyone specifically like he thinks.

I'd buy an XBox One just for Zoo Tycoon!

It's even better when you have a PMD. That's when you know you're doing something right. They're like my own personal daemon. They're the Pantilimon to my Lyra. Hugs

Just so I keep it on track, I think purchasing either console on RD is mental. No real system seller, potential hardware issues and no significant change from current gen. Needless to say, I've preordered both.
