Metabombed: Dead Rising 4 Is ‘Awful, Just Awful’

Dead Rising 4 was released right at the beginning of the month, but folks are still unhappy about it. While I enjoyed the game myself, Dead Rising‘s veteran fanbase bristles with discontent at what they see as a “dumbing down” of the series and the removal of its best elements.

Usually, a controversial release like this would be drowned in negative Metacritic user reviews at launch, but it took some time for the negativity to boil over this time.

I swear this is NOT yet another episode about Steam Early Access! It’s actually about Street Fighter V, and games of a similar ilk.

It’s just a really, really good title for the episode this week, as we talk about “AAA” games released in a deliberately unfurnished state with content promised later down the line.

God damn, is Early AAAccess a great title, though.
