Okay this has happened before to some of you I'm sure. Do you ever read the back of your RPG game boxes? you know how they go, about 4-6 pictures and some comments on what you will get from the game. well some time they lie, and that is just disapointing. Who's with me?
So lets see...
Rogue galaxy: The box sais over 100 hours of gameplay. Oh yeah right, I went through every dingeon including the secret ones and I got up to about 40 hours of gameplay. LIAR!!!!
I dont know how it would work in that case, but a pussy defense would be that overall the game can provide over 100 hours of gameplay as a gamer can spend more time than normal in getting through the game by grinding or playthroughs. As they dont say it is actually differred gameplay, it works out.
I normally dont take anything from a box seriously. I actually laugh when they quote game sites with just one single word from the review. I prefer to read reviews and/or dicussions at forums about a game before buying it, even if the box promises a blowjob from Scarlett Johansson with every purchase.
Thats because Atlus actually had a good relationship with allrpg. I dont know if we still have that.
Not as much I don't think. But then again DDS2 wasn't out until too long ago especially here in the EU and the ad I say was from here. I think it's a matter of contacting Atlus if possible. Have them know how much we love them.
They're not going to be happy to see our Baroque review.
I am pretty sure they understand when a game fails. I havent played it and havent read the review or any other review for that matter, but if a game sucks it sucks. Unless IGN is reviewing, in that case they will make a great review if you give them enough money. ****ing whores.
I may get laughed at for this but I have found that, for the most part, the reviews that I agreed with the most were from G4's X-Play. Now if you are not in the US, you may be going "What the Hell is he talking about?"
I agree with your assessment of Sessler as an individual but so far the show has been pretty close on most of their reviews, at least in my experience. I have went against their reviews a few times and got burned and I have went with them and didn't enjoy the game as much as they did. Overall though, I think they have been right more often than some of the mags or websites. I have been checking this site out for several years but mostly for release dates. I don't think I have checked out the reviews section on here. BTW, love the userpic.
I don't see why people hate on the G4 crew, they do a pretty good job at letting you know about the hottest games at the time and they don't sugarcoat it. If a game sucks, they will tell you just how much so. If a game is good, but has some flaws, they'll note those.
To be on topic no box comes to mind right now, but I'm sure I've been disappointed by reading the boxes growing up. I know the trailer for Beatdown made me want the game, but I hated myself for buying it cause it sucked so hard.

I am sorry, I thought I had made my point, just look at this goddamn prick, he has douchebag written all over him, he has that same mutated gene that Ben Afleck has, no matter what they do, its always a prick move. Its like a super power, like the opposite of the charm and charisma that Christian Bale, Daniel Craig and Ryan Reynolds have.
Waste of life
Now if you are wondering, this was the drop that topped the glass
See, here he has the golden opporunity, a one on one fight against the biggest idiot in the world and, well i dont wanna say enemy, he is sort of like that retarded villain that is always messing up things but they always end up back firing, but yeah enemy of videogamers, and what does Sessler ****ing do? He starts to ramble unintelligibly, I couldnt understand a word he was saying, he starts rising his voice and doing that thing with his stupid mug and what happens, he actually made Jack Thompson seem normal, like he couldnt even understand his stupidity.
Adam Sessler made Jack Thompson seem ****ing eloquent. And thats why I hate Adam Sessler. Webb, well I dont really care about her, she is pretty much worthless.
I don't think that Adam is the actual reviewer, he is just the big mouthpiece that is chosen to deliver the reviews. Do I think he is a waste of flesh, yea. Do I watch it for his "witty, cough cough" repartee, no. I watch it because usually, their reviews are spot on.
I don't even have G4, haven't seen one of their reviews in a year now.
Stupid cheap ass cable company.
A lot of times, the trailers for games lie even more than the back of the box does. They find every cutscene of gameplay they can find, make a trailer out of it, then present it like the entire game looks like that, when usually, the gameplay looks much different.
I have to admit though, that this latest generation, there isn't so much of a difference as there once was.
