The end is nigh...

DROP THE SCYTHE, AND TURN AROUND SLOWLY.
for poor quality movie tie-in games as Warner announce they will penalise publishers whose games average review scores of 70% or less. But why can't we penalise Warner for cr4p films?

You can - don't go and see them. :)

I know what you mean though - especially the game to movie conversions like Streetfighter, Resident Evil, Mario, Wing Commander, Final Fantasy.

I happened to like Streetfighter, Wing Commander, and the Resi film!

And as soon as I find the FF film on DVD cheap enough, I'm gonna buy that too! I think I'll love it!

bungers said...

I suppose the mario film did suck though... ;)

So, on the "I happened to like" logic we shouldn't be too concerned about all the kids who bought the Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter games because a lot of those kids happened to like them. Even though we, as seasoned gaming experts, know they are a bag of sh!te. Therefore game and film publishers can release as much sh!te as they like because there's always someone with sufficient bad taste to say "I happened to like the StreetFighter film. Kylie was in it"

That is the way licences work after all. There's hadn't been a good Simpson game until the last one yet they've all sold loads.

It's all Bungers' fault that 87% of all games are shite.

Re LOTR - there is a very good looking LOTR RTS coming out

Sorry, I meant to say "I, as seasoned gaming overlord who can wup yer 4r5e on any title, any platform, you name it, who's the daddy"

I challenge you to.. ooh I dunno... PGR2 on Xbox Live you fscking bottler!

Dogs said...

Doh! I cancelled my free two month subscription last week - foolishly thinking that I would not get billed AND I could continue to use it until my free two month's were done. Wrong. Shouldn't there be a law against that?

mmChronic said...

Against gross stupidity? It should carry the fscking death sentence.

It just sounds like you've bottled it to me - which after your 'any title, any platform' challenge makes you sound even gayer than you did yesterday. :)

bungers said...

I can stand up proudly (phnar) and say I loved Streetfighter solely because it had Kylie in a Cammy outfit.

Ding dong!

I challenge you to a duel sir. Consider your face slapped thrice times.

Bring it on you gay fisher dude... :)
