REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review
Disney Infinity 3.0 offers the first real taste of new Star Wars gaming content since the franchise was purchased by the Disney Corporation. This begs the question: Is it Han Sololicious? Or Jar Jar Bombad?

FEATURED VOXPOP Ivory_Soul
Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

DAILY MANIFESTO

sliverstorm: Vox Pop Winner July 2012

Posted on Wednesday, August 1 @ 16:12:53 PST by

Another month, another Vox Pop, another $20 code giveaway.

As many projected, sliverstorm's statistical analysis of whether Jonathan's review of The Secret World killed the game (it did not) has won July's Vox Pop of the Month. It was difficult to surpass its rant against the prevalance of Metacritic scores being used as the only determinant of a game's success. Sure, Game Revolution gave it a low score, albeit an honest one, but that hardly means that it won't sell well or have a thriving community.

That said, both xDUMPWEEDx and sandineyes made valiant efforts, the former attacking eBay scalpers and the latter criticizing L.A. Noire for, well, pretty much everything. While not as timely as silverstorm's, these articles still have valid points and are worthy of a read-through if you haven't give them one already (or perhaps give them a second look, eh?).

silverstorm, expect a PM on what kind of $20 code you want. (And upload an avatar, will ya?!)

Winner: sliverstorm
Title: Did Game Revolution Kill The Secret World?



Excerpt: "If you aren’t familiar with The Secret Worldcom scandal, the story unfolds as follows: Game Revolution reviewer Jonathan_Leack, in a manner that can only be described as “horribly underprepared for the consequences,” posts a review for MMO The Secret World, scoring the game as a 2.5 out of 5."


Runner-Up: xDUMPWEEDx
Title: eBay Scalpers Targeting The Gaming Industry Is Getting Out Of Hand


Excerpt:
""Out of stock". WTF? WHAT IS THIS SORCERY!? Yep, that fancy Collector's Edition from the game franchise you love is gone forever. It was completely and immediately bought out by eBay resellers, who bought 10, 20, 50, 100 copies to flip on eBay for profit."


Runner-Up: sandineyes
Title: Why I Think L.A. Noire Sucked In Pretty Much Every Way


Excerpt:
"L.A. Noire's pick-a-question menu has no depth to it: There is no gradual breakdown of a person's mental defenses and getting the information you need. Alternating between civil questioning and wild accusations just looks ridiculous. And do we really need the game to play music to show that you picked the wrong choice? And even write a little 'X' by the question just to reinforce the idea that we suck?"
