The biggest release this week, in my opinion, has been Mass Effect 2. (Although a lot of other good games came out this week as well! Solid week for gaming!) It's been getting stellar reviews across the board, and everyone I've talked to who's played it has really, really liked it.
What's notable about ME2 is that it didn't come out for the Playstation. Just like the 360 fanboys couldn't stop whining about MAG, this week the PS3 fanboys just can't stop whining about Mass Effect.
Let's explore, shall we?
You know how pretty much every outlet is giving Mass Effect 2 something between a 9 and a 10? This kid, who was serious, is bringing score bitching to a new low.
WOW! only 1 point higher than the first mass effect, no thanks.....
On the topic of score, PS3 fanboys can't comprehend that one outlet gave the game 0.1 points higher than Uncharted 2. This comment is extra funny because it was made a day before retail release.
Uncharted 2 annihilates this game! why is the game 9.6??
Another guy, on the same day, announces that he prefers Uncharted 2. What happens when he gets called out because the game isn't out yet? FREE SPEECH! Also he has both consoles so he's not a fanboy.
It's my opinion, i prefer whatever i want and before you think im a ps3 fanboy i own a 360 too i didnt say this game sucked, i just said i prefer uncharted 2 since im i like playing more realistic games than sci fi
This one was made after the game was actually out, although I can guarantee you this kid didn't play it.
bs uncharted 2 is way better uncharted disurved a 10 out of 10 this is not better but yet you dumb asses rate this game higher wtf you guys are all fucking idiots uncharted 2 is better and you now it so fuck all you guys your fucked up in the head
God, I wish that guy above would just GET A LIFE.
how can u rant on like a little bitch sayn uncharted is better wen u aint playd this get a life lol man u ps3 fanboys r a joke lol uncharted 2=9.5 mass effect 2=9.6 dose that piss all ps3 fanboys off as mutch as it pisses u off lol
Ugh, Mass Effect is such an Uncharted 2 ripoff.
UNCHARTED 2 WAS GOOD BUT 3 MONTHS LATER MASS EFFECT SHITS ON IT AND NOBODY GIVE ME CRAP ABOUT"oh they r completley differnet" THEY BOTH USE COVER SHOOTING
Did you really think this wouldn't be anything besides people making Uncharted 2 comparisons?
every1 this is rated higher dan uncharted 2 oh yeah suck it playstation fanboys
Man, comparing games is so stupid, what a fanboy. METAL GEAR SOLID!!!
Do you realise how pathetic that was? By saying that, you have just proven that you are a pathetic little fanboy. Also is it higher than MGS4?
But it's ok, he can't be a fanboy because he (say it with me) HAS BOTH SYSTEMS!
i own both systems fag and i have mgs4 and its a great game its just that ps3 fanboys like urself wonnt shut up about uncharted
A 360 fanboy stops by to rub in what he thinks is a fact showing the Playstation sucks, but actually makes it sound pretty nice. I can't think of 18 games I want to play on EITHER console.
now Xbox 360 is up to 27 AAA games while PS3 is still stuck at 18. lmfao
Really? Xbox has 27 AAA titles? Well that's too bad, because we're on FOUR A NOW!
haha 360 fagboys still dont have AAAA games like uncharted 2 or mgs4. 9.6 aint even close. fuckin douchebags. keep suckin microsoft dick and playing crap halo.
That's right. You know what your stupid triple A games are like?
fuckin dumbshit. universal scores of uncharted are higher. its AAAA. AAA is one A less if you didnt notice. that like missing 25 of 100. dumb fuck.
I can't come up with individual comments for this whole exchange, so I'm just going to post it all in a row.
hahaha MASS EFFECT 2
AND HALO REACH
WAT U GOT NOW BEEEEECH!!!!!!!!!!
SUCK BILL GATES MICRO SOFT DICK MUCH. FUCKIN FAG 360 FANBOY. TALK WHEN YOU HAVE AAAA TITLES LIKE UC2 AND MGS4
sorry do u WANT TO CRY MORE ON HOW MASS EFFECT 2 HANDED U UR GAYSTATION 3 ASS and BY THE WAY THE 360 DOES HAVE AAA TITLES MORE THAN PS3 THIS IS NOT THE WII SON WE DO HAVE AAA TITLES
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY BITCH ASS 360 FAGBOY
One kid was REALLY hoping this game would suck. Because it didn't, he flies off the handle.
Oh my god! THIS HAPPENS EVERY FUCKING TIME A HYPED UP GAME RELEASES!!!' NO MATTER THE QUAlITY THEY STILL SAY ITS FUCKING AMAZING! WELL FUCK YOU
Here's a particularly good comment chain. I can understand being disappointed that the game isn't coming to your platform, so I don't fault the original commenter. At least at the beginning...
Fuck EA for not releasing this on the PS3.
A troll decides he's going to bait him.
lol jealous much?
And that immediately sets the original poster off.
What are you some kind of retarded fanboy? No, I'm not jealous, I'm just not going to shell out the cash for a system that's bound to break on me, sorry. I can still play this game on my PC but it sucks and I want to play it on my TV. There's nothing wrong with that.
The troll responds with the classic "I own all systems" bit.
lol I'm not a fanboy, I own all consoles including the ps3. You're the one that's actually retarded enough to get a ps3 and not buy a 360. If u can buy a ps3 than you can afford a 360. And the new 360's dont break as often as the old 360's.
A seven year old who happened to be passing by decides to jump into the fray.
y r u trolling on 360 VID UR JUST A HATER
MASS EFFECT 2 > UNCHARTED 2
On the topic of breaking 360s, this guy has a very convincing argument.
Mass Effect 2 is such a good-looking game that it crashes the Xbox, that doesn't mean it's a faulty system. Uncharted 2 crashed some PS3s.
Finally, I'm going to end with a really long "discussion" between some individuals.
It begins with this bold claim:
ps3 has better rpgs
You're not going to be able to back up that claim without some Metacritic numbers, mister!
like what RPG reply to me "oh wise one" what RPG came out for the PS3 that got a review better than a 9.6.. and don't say Fallout 3 bcuz that game came out for PC and Xbox too..
Two guys, apparently who had been arguing in a previous thread, bring it over to this one. Out of nowhere, one guy posts that he is ENDING THE ARGUMENT, despite not having said anything yet in the entire thread.
I said I am ending the argument what is your problem all this because I called you a ps3 fanboy its time to grow up kid
The other party responds, pointing out that he's not really ending the argument:
Exactly what? That your a bit of an idiot for saying that you will end the argument, then deciding to reply in the space of 5 minutes? Well if that's the case then i have to agree. Exactly, you are a complete idiot
Wow. The first guy is thirteen. What a shocker.
go fuck yourself do you like arguing with 13 year olds
The answer is yes, he does like arguing with 13 year olds.
HAHA are you 13? Is this why you're swearing and trying to act like a tough guy, because you've finally learnt all of the naughty words. Well i think you've learnt some life lessons here for when your balls finally drop, when you say something, actually follow through with it. Now maybe you should be off to bed little boy.
This next comment was deleted by the 13 year old, but by piecing together some of the replies that quoted him, it appears his response to the ball dropping insult was this.
"I grew a moustache when i was 12"
by moustache, do you mean monobrow? Seriously when it's above your eyes it's not a moustache.
He's wounded! Go in for the kill!
so what that make you feel manly exactly oh and wait you just insulted me thats two there is something wrong with you. you must be enjoying this argument I am not but I don't like to back down. you are pathetic
And with this, the conversation dies. Winner - Guy who likes arguing with 13 year olds.
No you complete idiot. See i'm not as pathetic as you and i have a life. So what you're saying is because i went out with my friends, that means that you won? I'm coming back idiot. Again, so what you're saying is if you're friends ask you out, you are pathetic enough to say no because you're in the middle of a youtube argument. What a pathetic little child you are. No you didnt win and that childish little display proves you will never win this argument because you're a pathetic little boy.
If you'll notice, almost no one actually talked about Mass Effect 2 AT ALL, except to talk about the score it got or to compare it with Uncharted 2. I don't know why that still surprises me, but it does. You think that SOMEONE could both A. stay on topic and B. actually start a discussion, but you would think wrong. It's virtually impossible.
For those of you who aren't idiots, enjoy your awesome week of Mass Effect 2/MAG/Tatsunoko/No More Heroes 2 playing. We'll hang out again next Friday.
