SuperKMx commented on Gone Home: Console Edition:

@stylon I've looked into it, and they're still having problems with ratings and certification in the UK/EU/AU. Latest status is that it'll be a little while yet, sadly. Don't hold your breath, but it is still on the way!



SuperKMx commented on Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Sneaks On To Xbox One ...:

@stylon It appears that Microsoft has removed it so it no longer works. (Just about to update the story.) It looks like it was being tested for a future B/C release, rather than being a full and final launch.

It'll be on the list relatively soon, I'd say.



SuperKMx commented on Review: Resident Evil 0 (Xbox One):

@VanillaLake With respect, I am not "annoyed and intolerant" at "fair and respectful criticism." Your criticism was NOT fair NOR was it respectful for the reasons that I, and others, have stated.

You seem to be under the assumption that anyone that doesn't share YOUR OPINION is "incorrect" and that their words are "not relevant." Both terms are offensive when you're judging a review, frankly. Then, when you're called on it, it's all our fault and we don't understand the difference between opinion and fact.

I didn't comment on KelticDevil's "insults" because they weren't directed at me and didn't necessarily cross any lines. Yours were aimed at the site that I run, and therefore at the job I've done as the Editor of the review in question, as well as a member of my staff. You stated that I'd let irrelevant and inaccurate statements through to publication. Yes, I'm going to defend that. Why? Because you're wrong.

Agree with a review, disagree with a review - that's all fine. Tell us you don't trust our opinion. Tell us you won't read the site anymore. That's all fine with us because people have opinions that differ. When you understand that, you'll be the better for it.

I don't want you to fake recognition. I want you to understand what a review is, what a fact is, and what an opinion is.



SuperKMx commented on Review: Resident Evil 0 (Xbox One):

@VanillaLake The first one doesn't back you up as it's an opinion. "We don't believe that there's anything here that completely offers any satisfactory answer to all the weird happenings in this zombie universe."

"We don't believe" is the key point. They might have been satisfactory to you, but not to the reviewer.

And the second one is 100% an opinion. You're saying that it is a fact that one game is scarier than another. It isn't. Some people say that clowns are scary. I don't find them so. Which opinion is "correct" or "a fact" as you're calling it?

But don't worry about us changing the review. We would have corrected a factual inaccuracy, but someone who's predetermined to be in love with the game because they're a fan of the franchise disagreeing with valid criticisms from our reviewer? I think not.



SuperKMx commented on Review: Resident Evil 0 (Xbox One):

@VanillaLake If there are actual inaccuracies, rather than differences of opinion, then please point them out and I will ensure that they are amended.

If they are just differences of opinion, then please refrain from calling them "not correct."



SuperKMx commented on Review: Resident Evil 0 (Xbox One):

@VanillaLake "By the way, I don't agree at all with the review."

"If you want to read a much more relevant review just check PureXbox's sister web"

Our sister site gave it 8/10, as we did. Not sure how their review is "more relevant" than ours.

At the time of writing, we're also giving it the joint highest score it has obtained on Xbox One:

On PS4, it's averaging 7.2 from 16 reviews. You may be alone in thinking it deserves a 9 or 10.



SuperKMx commented on Star Wars Battlefront Prices Slashed in This W...:

@Tasuki Wouldn't say that they're abandoning everyone when every week, the Xbox 360 sale list is generally longer than the Xbox One list.

As noted in the article, there's a massive sale coming up that will feature over 200 titles. You can bet your bottom dollar that a large percentage of those will be Xbox 360 titles.



SuperKMx commented on Phil Spencer Would Be Happy to See More Ninten...:

@KelticDevil I feel much the same way about Nintendo on a lot of your points, I have to say.

I love a lot of their games and I've owned every Nintendo platform since the NES, but they just seem colder to their audience than the other two manufacturers, and way more stubborn. Their online service has improved a little lately in terms of functionality, but was absolutely lame for WAY longer than it should have been. Friend Codes were an absolute embarrassment.

Three things annoyed me this time around. Wii Fit U was bordering on offensive. The game that sold the Wii (aside from Wii Sports) to families and non-gamers...updated with tons of new stuff! Only it's practically identical. Great.

Then Wii Sports Club was much the same deal. Hardly any improvements to Wii Sports to the point that it didn't warrant a purchase. Make enough improvements, advertise them, bundle it with a console, and it'll sell through the roof. But no.

amiibo is the third thing. To me, it feels like most of their focus is now on those toys, which people seem to love spending hundreds of dollars on. Plus their "inability" to make enough of them, which was a blatant move to falsify demand that nobody really seemed to see.

I want their new system to totally blow me out of the water, but I can't imagine it'll do anything other than what the Wii and Wii U did. Reliance on classic Nintendo IP, one or two of which will make launch day interesting. Tons of third-party support on day one, then those publishers will drop away in favour of Microsoft and Sony's next efforts when Nintendo's console - which will be named something laughable, no doubt - doesn't sell very well due to some inherent flaw, such as forcing the GamePad on everyone.



SuperKMx commented on Don't Worry, Microsoft Are Working on Making X...:

@Utena-mobile "Also, didn't the Xbox website on PC get hacked recently?"

No, not even close. A private certificate key was exposed which could POTENTIALLY allow for "man-in-the-middle" attacks. Microsoft revoked the key and publicly issued an advisory to clarify the situation.



SuperKMx commented on Microsoft Is Holding Another Huge Xbox Live Ga...:

@freaksloan That'll be because the stock situation is always fluid but the newsletters/email blasts are set up to fire at a specific time.

Happened to me with a number of retailers this week, sadly. "Come get This Thing! It's cheap!" "Awesome!" "This Thing is sold out!"



SuperKMx commented on Review: Fallout 4 (Xbox One):

@A_BabyRed_Yoshi Fair enough. I do see where you're coming from, but like GraveLordXD says - he hasn't run into many glitches within 70hrs. The only ones I've run into are the ones mentioned in the review. Sometimes it does come across as if Bethesda get a free pass and I see that, but like I say, it does depend on luck, to an extent. I can only criticize bugs that I see.



SuperKMx commented on Review: Fallout 4 (Xbox One):

@A_BabyRed_Yoshi It also depends on how many glitches other people are running into.

With an open world game like this, you might find ten different glitches within ten minutes, but I might only find ten across forty hours. The glitches I happened across are noted in the review and the game survives all of those glitches for me by filling the non-glitch time with truly fantastic gameplay.

"Other games that do the same" in terms of glitches might not make up for the errors and bugs in the way that Fallout 4 does.
