The PS4 came out today, has Bores managed to be timely and release a video on that? Nope! It’s about Sonic Lost World, oh this is going to suck.
Sonic Lost World is… divisive. Personally I feel it’s not as good as Colors or Generations, and the fact that I need to hold down a button to run instead of having it done automatically feels counter-intuitive But I still enjoyed what I played of it, and suggest that you get it at a discount.
Going through the video, it’s clear he did not script this. So I’m going to avoid using timestamps as he just rambles on and on.
“Hey gamers, I want to talk about Sonic The Lost World in this Irate Gamer Neo episode” It’s just Sonic Lost World, there’s no “the” in the title.
“I first saw this game at the E3 event…” Take a shot.
He mentioned that he liked it at E3, but now that he’s played it at home he doesn’t like it. Hoo boy, this is going to be interesting.
His first issue is that the game is “really hard on the eyes” and he can’t play for more than 5-10 minutes at a time without getting dizzy. Well, that’s your own problem Chris. Don’t blame the game for something that’s clearly wrong with you. Go see a doctor, get your head checked out. You keep going on about how games make you dizzy or sick, and that’s all on you, you should probably do something about it.
He mentions that the “other people watching him play” got nauseous as well. You mean the girlfriend’s kids? Just say it.
He keeps going on about this problem, and then notes that if you don’t get dizzy then you’ll be fine. Here’s the thing Chris, considering how often games make you dizzy or sick, you shouldn’t be fucking playing them! Why did you even choose this career path? Oh right, James Rolfe made it popular and you’re a leech. Seriously though, consider that maybe playing video games isn’t healthy for you and that you should find something else to do. I’m just saying.
He brings up that it’s Wii U exclusive, and wonders if that’s the case because “PlayStation and Xbox didn’t like the concept” No you fucktard! Pay attention to gaming news for once in your life! Nintendo and Sega struck a three game deal, that’s why Sonic Lost World is exclusive to Nintendo platforms! See, this is why you need to script this shit, so you can double check your facts, and not come across like a fucking moron!
“To all the people at Sega, I know you watch my videos from time to time” Bullshit! Okay, maybe some employees that work the phones or the marketing department have seen his videos, but I seriously doubt anyone from Sonic Team or anyone actually involved in development has seen his crappy crappy reviews.
He continues whining about the levels “twisting and turning” and then tells Sega that they should just “reboot Sonic 2, 3 & Knuckles levels because that’s what the fans really want”. Oh fuck off! You got that with Sonic Generations (which you didn’t play because you stole the footage for that review), let Sega and Sonic Team do something original. Quit living in the past! The same can be said to many Sonic fanboys out there.
Wow… that was crap.
Why even call it a review? He just whined about the fact the game made him dizzy. He didn’t even bring up the gameplay, the story, the sound, the controls, just a problem that only effects him and a few others. Hell, this review gave me more of a headache than Sonic Lost World ever did.
In fact, I have my doubts he actually played the game.
I made the reckless mistake of looking in the comments, and amongst the Bob spam I managed to find a comment calling something out.
Looking at the video, the box did have a gleam off it that implicated it was sealed. So, either he had a second copy of the game, he downloaded it digitally and just happened to have the retail version on him for some reason, or he’s talking out of his ass (as per usual).
That’s it for now. If you managed to pick up a PS4, enjoy it. If you liked Sonic Lost World, more power to you. Granted, that’s if you played Sonic Lost World (I’m hearing rumblings that the game sold really poorly). If you didn’t for real reasons like poor controls are the difficulty, then that’s fine too. If you get just as dizzy, seek medical help.
Think we’ll see the next retro review before the year’s out? *shrugs*
EDIT: I just remembered something!
Bores should have actually known about the Nintendo exclusivity deal, he brought up on his site before!
Look at that. How did Bores not remember the deal? The man seems to have major memory issues.
