Why E3 Bothers Me (Ranty Edition)
So yeah... My take on E3 in general.
"I'm going to choke the next person that calls it a smash clone"
"It looks like smash it plays like smash the concept is like smash"
"Who care's if it's a clone"
In all honesty those statement contradict each other. Oh and to go back to your first episode you reference there is such a thing a false equivilency
Thank you! I'm glad to see that there are decent people out there who can provide valid counter augments to all of dumb popular believes.
If I may, I would like to add another problem that bugged me particularly about E3:
Besides Watch_Dogs, E3 didn't have that many surprises in store and thus a lot of hype was lost. The main reason for this happening is because before E3 even started, there were so many articles, leaks, interviews etc. about the stuff to be featured in the show from all these news outlets etc. Following up on your Video Game Christmas analogy, that's like sneaking to the tree on midnight Christmas Day, opening the presents and finding out what they are, re-wrapping and putting them back like nothing happened, and then the morning a few hours later you're given the presents and are expected to be totally surprised.
Hence I suggest that media show a little restraint when it comes to revealing such things, especially around the big show weeks. It's a bit challenging to avoid temptation of ratings, but I think the overall joy of the many will beat the squees of the few.
Other than that, not a particularly bad rant. Nothing new, but rationally intelligent nonetheless.
Awesome. can't wait!
I get you, I hardly play online also. I mean, I even have a hard time doing local multiplayer because I don't know that many people who enjoy the same games I do. Plus it's far more satisfying for me to play through a game that sucked me in and gave me a compelling (or thrilling) experience that I won't forget than to kill another person through the barrel of a gun or winning a race.
^_^ Will do!
*gaming is a lot more enjoyable when you do it with people you care about.*+the whole ps all stars argument completely agree with you kepp these amaing videos comin
*gaming is a lot more enjoyable when you do it with people you care about.* well said gaijin i completely agree with you
That's one of the reasons I don't play online all that often. Call me a hermit if you (not you literally) must, but gaming is a lot more enjoyable when you do it with people you care about.
Welp, the next Game Exchange should be out early next week if not earlier. Depends on how much time I get.
"If You Don't Like It, Don't Buy It" - Words to live by...
It just seems every year, there's less and less things for me to buy...
I really enjoyed listening to this because while you are indeed an opinionated individual, you are still able to look at things in a more objective view, the bigger picture pretty much and I really don't see many others who are like that in general. Ever since E3 I've been reading a bunch of articles and comments that have really bothered me also, which is why I started writing articles on here also, first talking about rip offs then about Nintendo not revealing the complete hardware specs of the Wii U. More and more gamers are turning into whiners and it's frankly extremely annoying and just makes me want to reach through my computer and give those people a good smack on the head :P
After hearing so many people complain, its nice to hear a well thought out rant. Nicely done! I thoroughly enjoy your videos and look forward to future ones!
XD Well, it's part of the character.
heheheh your voice is funny
Really, that's why I say "E3 bothers me" and not "I hate E3". One of these days, speaking my mind is gonna get me into trouble.
This sounds less like a rant about E3 and more like a rant about how idiotically the gaming community tends to overreact to the event. In which case I approve.
^_^ Thank you so much! I was hoping it wasn't too ranty.
There is intelligent ranting and incoherent ranting. This is the former. Well played Mr. Goomba.
I really liked the point of this video, "If you don't like it, don't buy it." I think if I would keep that statement in the forefront of my mind before I go and state my opinions on things that I'm not a fan of in the gaming industry, I don't think I would be as disappointed or upset; it just means I'm not going to buy things like the Wonderbook or SiNG.
