Reviewing the Future: Qore Episode 03



Like an idiot, I bought an annual subscription of Qore the moment I could. "It only makes sense," I thought. "I'll be buying all the episodes anyway, so at least I'll get Calling All Cars out of it!"

Well, past self, you're a fucking moron. I never play Calling All Cars anymore, and Qore only ever covers games no one cares about unless they're delivering old information about games we do care about. Their Resistance 2 coverage offered nothing new, but their Naruto coverage was chock full of stuff I didn't know, or want to know. It's Naruto. Enough said.

PlayStation.Blog just announced what'll be in tomorrow's episode of Qore, so I decided, why bother waiting to review it when judging the future is just so much more fun?

DC Universe Online


Let's face it. Something is going to go wrong. They're trying to build up hype for this, but to me, it just looks like they're going to over-promise and under-deliver. As for the content Qore is going to give us on this, yeah, I wouldn't expect much beyond telling you what the game sets out to do and some concept art by Jim Lee, which could be cool.


NBA 09


Yep. It's still basketball.


Lego Batman: The Video Game


Is the subtitle really necessary? Is there a Lego Batman: The Romance Novel that I don't know about? Well, this is probably going to be the most interesting part of Qore, but I doubt they'll talk about gameplay that much since it hasn't really changed since the first Lego Star Wars, and instead just talk about the characters and suits.

Personally, I'm not really a Lego _____ game fan, but hey, I can see the appeal. Those cut scenes are damn funny. I wouldn't mind a Lego movie.


Baja: Edge of Control


Dude, with this game, Pure, and Motorstorm: Pacific Rift all coming out within a couple months of each other, they've lost their appeal. I might pick up Motorstorm, but Baja just looks like such a ripoff. I expect the Qore coverage to do nothing but confirm this.


New Downloadable Content


This is the only reason to buy this month's episode: Resistance 2 beta. But that's not going to be coming out for awhile and there will be other ways to get in, so... Hey, it also comes with a Qore theme! Which I'm sure will be a totally cool design unlike the PSN and Home themes![/sarcasm]


Don't Hit L2


Every month they tell us not to hit L2, so, naturally, we do. What we're greeted with is the same lame mini-game every time. It's literally simplified Pong. And it looks like Qore Episode 03 carries on that tradition. It's more like "don't BOTHER hitting L2."


Qore is such wasted potential. All it's given me is themes I never use and $24.99 worth of regret.
