16  Site Related & More / RPGFan: Site / Re: The same review on multiple platforms (aka Josh being insufferable again) on: September 10, 2015, 04:45:13 PM
Along these same lines, we were discussing games we never reviewed recently, and a number of them were games that we did review on one platform, but not on another, because the ports/platforms were sufficiently different that it wouldn't have been right to link to the same review in multiple places.  A typical example would be X-Men Legends II on Xbox, PSP and GameCube.  Even if they were released at the same time, the capabilities of those platforms were so different we couldn't say that the review of one would tell you what to expect from the others.

Hardware disparity doesn't seem to be as big an issue these days as it used to be, so we don't have to worry about that as much.  But we'll still break things up if we feel like that's more appropriate.  Like if Broken Age had been on iOS, Vita, and PC, and the touchscreen controls were totally broken.  We'd give that a different review with a different score.

That's my two bits, speaking as someone who's written separate reviews for the same game on different platforms and also posted one review for multiple platforms. :)

Terranigma, I believe they said. :)

Somebody's getting new ringtones. :)

Yeah, 10 mostly sets things up for 11, but it really picks up after that.

There are miniature horses, too - blind folks can get one instead of a seeing eye dog.

If you got that far and it didn't grab you, it probably wouldn't if you kept going, either.

I liked the characters, and the world, and the whole overarching plot.  I feel like there is real threat - even the main characters don't really escape unscathed, although you can probably tell some of the folks who will definitely live to the end from book 1.  One of the criticisms I've made against the series (even as a fan) is that many of the characters really don't seem to grow much for a long time.  But they do grow in the end.

I've been keeping busy on the reading front as well - I went through the first three Dresden Files books in pretty short order, and I quite enjoyed them.

I'm now reading a book called The Lives of Tao, about an average guy who finds that an alien intelligence has taken up residence in his head and needs him to help save the world.  I'm not far into it, but I like the premise.

Haha - I have no opinion on which does better, but I can say that I never go to Game Ranking.  Don't have a particular reason other than I became acquainted with Metacritic first.

Rock on.  I have to say that I was SHOCKED to see the 2.3 patch hit consoles at all, let alone the same day as PC.  Pleased, but shocked. :)  I'm very happy to have the cube available.  I'm less thrilled about having to complete 25 bounties in order to collect the materials to use it a max of six times (if you make sure to complete the bounties for each act while it's the bonus act), but I imagine I won't care that much once I've got the stuff that's been sitting in my stash just because of a cool power into the cube.

Actually, I'm less than 100 bounties away from getting that final trophy for Platinum.  I probably won't feel as pressured to play after that, which will be nice.

If they're just random people, I'd see these as things we'd put in the random amazing pictures thread.  But if they're forum-goers, then a separate thread feels totally appropriate.  I know some of you folks do some pretty cool stuff. :)

Can be sacrificed for 30 pieces of silver.

Those are seriously good, Dice!  Nice job!

I've recently taken over the job of forum managing here. Part of that is approving the new members. If I've fucked up and let a spammer through could people use the report button so I see it? Still getting used to being a detective. Danke! :)

Somebody used the report button to report this post as a test.  I got the email.  Did you?

Pools of piranhas with giant crocodiles jumping out of them are pretty great, too. :)

I definitely agree with Rob, it's a great couch co-op game. I played it with my wife for quite a while, too.
