The Marvel Cinematic Universe dictates the very finite nature of Infinite.
As both a professional hater of the corporate machine and a videogame critic, one must walk a fine line between providing information on distasteful business practices and measuring said practices against the positive accomplishments of any given piece of work.
User reviews are subject to no such concerns, which is why METABOMBING a game for any reason in particular happens so often.
Destiny 2 is, for my money, a damn great game. A great game undoubtedly held back to some degree by Activision’s monetization tactics. I might have to take the time to weigh the good against the ill, but Metacritic’s community reviewers have let their feelings known with both barrels.
As you’d expect.
Dynasty Warriors, Nioh, Deception, and more join forces to smash up some anthro cats because of some reasons.
It was sincere and touching, and that’s all it should’ve been, but the decision to charge for content honoring the late Mike Forgey altered the conversation.
Alright then, let’s get into this mess.
Those paid mods that Bethesda said weren’t paid mods turned out to be paid mods and also worse than paid mods.
The Creation Club has gifted a bounty unto Fallout 4, and it looks like things are little too much like microtransactions and mods got welded together horrifically.
Agents of Mayhem is a passably amusing game shackled forever to the fact it’s less than its peers in every single way.
In the world of videogames, even spiders need to be sexy, because Heaven forbid even Shelob be allowed her ugliness.
When Shadow of War isn’t busy introducing loot boxes, it’s redesigning spiders in a way that reinforces some unfortunate ideas.
The review teardown of Mass Effect: Andromeda was something of a slow burn – while we can normally post a Metabomb article within a day or two of the game’s release, it took some time for the grudge against BioWare’s latest to push back those defending it.
I’m not exactly sure when the scales finally tipped, but as the humble historian who catalogues such things, it is my duty to inform you that Andromeda has been Metabombed!
Yeah, it’s ages since the game came out, but sod it. Let’s do what we usually do anyway. It’s content, right?
First and foremost, The Jimquisition went to Mississippi Comic-Con and I got roughed up by Jason Voorhees.
Of lesser importance is our main story. Cross-platform play is being embraced by both Microsoft and Nintendo. As with mods, Sony’s being a spoilsport again.
As Minecraft and Rocket League let Xbox One and Switch players interact, PS4 folks once again get stuck with inferior products.
