Windows 10 Review for Dummies

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...

Portal 2's Critical Acclaim Getting Screamed Over By Metacritic Users

Posted on Tuesday, April 19 @ 13:20:02 PST by

Are we back to this again? There are a lot of places you don't go on the internet to read user comments. Youtube, Gametrailers... Now, Metacritic.

Despite the near universal acclaim from critics about Portal 2, Metacritic's user reviews are being abused to splatter a nice, red yellow, ugly "6.2" next to the aggregated, green, shiny "95." Take a look for yourself. As of writing, some fans have lept to Valve's defense, but Metacritic's user reviews are now about as dumb and pointless as screaming into your shoe about your hat. Here are a few choice selections from the bottom of the barrel:

--Valve Sucks.

--4 hours. $50 Optional silly hats, SO RANDUM GESTURES XD and skins that were FREE IN HALF-LIFE 1 games. The gameplay is exactly the same as the previous game. Yes, I mad.

--The co-op robots clearly rip off of Mario and Luigi. When will PC gamers stop ripping off of the purity of console games? Since this game isn't coming out for Wii there's no way I'm playing it.

I love the last writer's comments. Not only did this individual give the game a ZERO, but they haven't played it and their blatant Nintendo fanboyism will prevent them from ever trying the game. "The purity of console games." Who gave these people their license to access the internet?

Let's face it, the reason for all this stupidity is that Game Revolution's review isn't live yet! Right?

Fuck it, who reads reviews of Valve games anyways....
