All Things Video Games/Game Reviews Part II
 
Hey all, you know the deal...
The other thread hit over 1,000 posts and we have server issues when that shit happens so here she be, a fancy new mega thread.

Anyway, just a quick rundown.

Post anything and everything gaming in here. Console games, handheld/mobile games or PC.

Playing something you love or maybe hate? Find a hidden gem on Steam? Let us know via a review. Try to make sure you give a good rundown on it. Graphics, sound, storyline, overall gameplay and replayability. Let's keep it at a 1-10 scale.

Thanks to all that left me awesome rep comments/posts and even pm's thanking me for the many reviews I wrote.
Just an FYI, developers do read our comments in here I guess. CD Projekt Red (of Witcher 3) was one that stopped by.

Anyway, thanks all for your input and as always, no griefing.

I'd wait on Mad Max to see how the reviews are. I'm hoping with a Far Cry 4 clone...but I'm not counting on it.

Im so behind with video games. I finally picked up Red Dead Redemption last night....

And if it were me, I'd go Mad Max. I watched it this weekend. Bad ass.

Metal Gear Solid 5 got a 10 on IGN. IGN can be idiotic with ratings at times, but it doesn't give out a 10 unless it's an amazing game. Even if Mad Max is great, it will likely not be as good as MGS 5, but it also comes down to personal preference.

Just get MGS5. You know you're going to anyway, lol.

Bowser 08-31-2015 11:33 AM

Me, I'll probably hold out for an oldie but goodie...

I dunno, man. I'm a big fan of the Metal Gear Solid series but that trailer just looks.....weird. That Mad Max game looks pretty cool.

I'm really getting the feeling that you hit the nail on the head here. I think it's going to be exactly that.

I don't trust IGN for shit... I wonder if they were a part of Konami's Boot Camp for this game.

If you haven't heard, Konami decided to allow reviewers early access, in a locked room under direct supervision.
Can you say Stockholm Syndrome boys and girls?

Game companies can be so shady sometimes but Konami is one of the worst.

Yeah, I'm leaning that way. Both look outstanding though.

Maybe I'll just say **** it and get both along with 2 cases of red bull, some amphetamines and Ten Taco Bell Grande Meals.
Sounds like an awesome weekend.

Might want to move your PS4 and TV into the bathroom then.

I don't completely trust IGN either. However, in this case they are right with the overall trend. Metacritic has it at a 95, which is an insane score for that site.

They went open-world with this so you basically manage a mercenary team, so it sounds like it has some XCOM-like elements where you put resources into different items like R&D for upgrades.

I played Ground Zeroes and was reminded how ****ing hard the whole series is.

I'm still working my way through Arkham Knight while I wait for the two winter games to hit (Call of Duty and Fallout), but if I were picking one today it would probably be Metal Gear.
