  1. I remember the reviews for the original Homefront being mixed back then. There were a handful of >85% reviews that miraculously managed to sneak through THQ's prerelease review embargo, followed by a shitload of <70% reviews from release day onwards. Something tells me that the same thing will occur again (hopefully minus the Metacritic padding selective embargo crap).

    Rock Band!

    There is one song I can pick for the last Rock Band DLC song. A song that'll mark The Day The Music Died. Hopefully, the whisky and rye won't get edited out like what happened in another game. Rock Band 3 is the only game this hardware generation that I played on at least 100 days.
  3. Regarding fanboys complaining about Bayonetta 2 going Wii-U exclusive: I wonder how many of these fuckwits complained when Final Fantasy VII went from Nintendo to PS1 exclusive back in the day. Hell, these are probably the same stupid cunts that accused Square-Enix of betrayal when Final Fantasy XIII also appeared on XBox360. Same principle.
  4. In my case, I got chopped down from roughly 26,900 points to 20 points while I was playing Split/Second. It shows my achievement unlocked symbols, but it only counts my 20 achievement points for today. I then I booted up Radiant Silvergun and started playing story mode, it unlocked the max upgrade all weapons achievement straight off my existing save.
  5. Good God, Konami. Your ranking below THQ and Ubisoft on Metacritic's annual publishers leaderboard was bad enough. Now you've fucked Hudsonsoft into the ground.

    Edge #237

    That actually makes some sense. Flatout 3 sounds like the Kick Off '96 of the series.

    Edge #237

    Why did Flatout 3 get magazine space in Edge at all? I can easily name a whole heap of sub 3/10 games that Edge chosen not to put in the magazine (e.g. any Army Men game, any Ubisoft game that has Imagine in the title, Superman 64). It's not like it had three months worth of double page adds inside the front cover of every other games mag on the planet. The Halo Reach review didn't make it into Edge magazine and Flatout 3 does?
  8. I didn't think that there was a Gamecube version of Marvel Vs Capcom 2. I think you might be referring to Capcom Vs SNK 2 EO. I remember Edge focusing on the Gamecube specific EO control method in their review, which resulted in a 3 out of ten. A more recent example of a similar thing was IGN reviewing the Wii version of Guilty Gear XX Accent Core. IGN focused firmly on the Wiimote and nunchuk specific control method, which resulted in the Wii version getting a lower score than the PS2 version. For those with a Classic controller, they said that the PS2 version score applied.
  9. Bioware going from Balder's Gate and Neverwinter Nights to Dragon Age was a bit of a nosedive. Not quite as bad as Silicon Knights going from Eternal Darkness: Sanity's Requiem to X-Men Destiny, but still a nosedive.
  10. May I mention Cryo? I'm fairly sure their stuff had sub 3/10 review score averages. For a more recent fiasco, I'd like to point to the most blatant example of a selectively enforced pre-release review embargo since Tomb Raider Underworld. I'm referring to Homefront, a game whose Metacritic average dropped from 88% pre-release to 72% or less post release.

    "Entitlement"

    To add to Napole0n's question, may I also mention that PSP Smackdown vs Raw game that took 6 minutes and 28 seconds to go from switching on the PSP to loading the actual gameplay?

    Rock Band!

    So was I. Brighton Rock from Sheer Heart Attack was also a favourite of mine. I also would've preferred Flick of the Wrist and Lily of the Valley combined with Tenement Funster, but even this lot is awesome. Harmonix saved me from buying a Singstar game with the previous Queen track packs, so I'm certainly grateful for this one.
