Are you just blatently not watching the video's at all?... One more time to answer ALL your questions on each game. Again, see for YOURSELF. And as for Mass's reader reviews, well, I guess people like playing a game that you have to pause to carry out all your commands except fire. That's good in a shooter, but, if you've ever played a game called Jedi Republic, you'll see Mass Effect has ALL the powers the Jedi's had. Force push, Force lift, mentally manip things, etc etc. Jedi Republic carried out all their RPG elements out in game, dunno why they scraped that for a pause the game system for Mass Effect... Again, watch the video's on both games. I want to know what YOU think, after watching BOTH video's... You're right, for ME it was not fun not being able to do shit unless the game was paused. Mass Effect is like a weird RPG whose turn-based system is done while the game is paused. At least in Uncharted I could do everything from Drake's menu while playing the game, swinging the camera around, and shooting all at the same time...blablabla said:like i said earlier, stick to the pretty games ok? its obvious that's the only thing you know about since even your precious ign says:
9.5 Lasting Appeal
Sure to be a classic RPG that is talked about (and played) for years.
wow, if no one would ever want to play this game, how on earth will it have replay value for YEARS ??
you still havent answered how IGN gave this "no fun" game a better score than "GOTY" contender unchartered.11secfox said:One more time to answer ALL your questions on each game
Pause the video's let it buffer fully, and then watch them both. I want to know your thoughts on each game after watching both video reviews.blablabla said:like i said earlier, ign busts my balls with their buffering but i got to a part that i think says it best.....
"in the end the combat is a bit of a mixed bag. it wont quite please all of the hard core shooter fans, nor will it really please the RPG fans...."
so it sounds to me that it may please MOST of the casual gamers. yeah, sounds like a terrible plan.
and one more thing....

even in reg rpg's your basically paused while selecting the moves, so its the same idea while its waiting for you to pick, atleast with mass effect you can do it that way or go all real time! mass effect rocks!11secFOX said:And my "butt" doesn't hurt. I own them all. My point is, don't jump on the hype bandwaggon with Mass Effect, it is NOT what people are hoping for. The fact alone that I HAD TO PAUSE the game to perform ALL THE COMMANDS, was enough to ruin it for me... Who in the fuck likes to play a paused game? If you're going to throw in RPG style elements they NEED to be selected and performed IN GAME, NOT WHILE THE GAME IS PAUSED.
That's my point. Reg RPG's died with Final Fantasy X-2. As anyone knows who played through Final Fantasy 12, turn based is a thing of the past. And the fact they tried to combine and old style of RPM mechanics into a Gears of War run and gun shooter is just, riiiiight. If they wanted to keep turned based shit they need to remove the run and gun aspect. Because it breaks up the action far too much. Those 2 elements just don't mix well.MindTrip said:even in reg rpg's your basically paused while selecting the moves, so its the same idea while its waiting for you to pick, atleast with mass effect you can do it that way or go all real time! mass effect rocks!
Give it another day. I've played it on the 360. Good game. Probabily 99.9% identical to the PS3 version though. I'm seriously thinking about buying COD4 now... Just wish the 1 player campaign was longer than the reviewed 6 hours. I'm not a big fan of playing with other peepz but man every one of ya'll on my buddy list ar always playing it. I'm tempted to join.RayRevolver said:I just saw that Medal Of Honor Airborne is out for the PS3 now.
Anyone have it yet? Seems like it wasn't hyped or even reviewed at the usual websites.
NOOOOOOOOOooooo! Don't make me have to choose sides!!!!!JasO said:^i have it for the 360. Pretty awesome game if you're into using the older type guns, heaps different to COD4 anyway, but different strokes for different folks. I'm probably enjoying cod4 more than i did medal of honor, the scenes they play during the load times is really kick ass, so you don't feel like the game ever loads
COD4, wtf are you waiting for? get it, and get it for the 360
that site is horrible, detroit free press? yahoo games? one online rag on that site gave R6Vegas a 60 overall. :wtfFallis said:
