Fanboy Friday: Bioware Bonus Edition

8:30 PM on 11.06.2009 // Aerox

This week, we'll be taking a look at a review for Dragon Age. While there's a little bit of complaining about scores, it's really more about the bickering that happens between 360 and PS3 owners. IGN rated the two console versions the same, but Gamespot gave the PS3 version 0.5 more points than the 360 version!

Who's right?!

Right from the start, someone decides Dragon Age should be directly compared to Demon's Souls.

Am I the only one kinda glad I bought Demon's Souls instead?

Shitstorm ahoy!

No dude, you are not alone on that one. I preordered the Deluxe edition of Demons souls, and damn that game is awesome. This dragon age game does not come anywhere near Demons souls quality. And yes, I can compare, as they are both rpgs.  If you are on the fence, get Demons souls. Its a much better game

One 360 fan steps in to defend Microsoft's honor...by shitting all over Demon's Souls.

Yes, you are the only one. Demon's Souls is garbage, a terrible excuse for a game, let alone an RPG. And yes, I do own a PS3 and I did play the game and hated every second of it, not because of the challenge, but because of the terribly bland world, boring combat, and seriously lackluster story/characters. Made me frown upon my PS3 once again, wondering why I wasted my money on the trash. Thankfully I have a 360 as well and can experience many wonderful games on it, such as DA:O which apparently runs much better on the 360 than the PS3.

Then, we get a brief interlude while people squabble about scores. One guy thinks the score is way too low...

This score is really low compared to the other ones, the average would be like a 9.2 9.3 if they hadn't put in a score of 8.4 and 8.7

While another thinks that the game got an undeserving high score just because it's from Bioware.

Let's call it the BIOWARE BONUS, from review score of this game should be 8.0 or at most 8.5, but seeing as it's BIOWARE we're talking about, they are not evaluated in the same way as other minor developers are.

And then we get to the good stuff. People arguing over the two console versions based on IGN's review vs. Gamespot's review, and in response to the comment about Demon's Souls above. None of the people commenting have PLAYED either version, but that doesn't really matter.

it runs a lITTLE better but the PS3 version looks better, it has been getting higher reviews than the 360 version and reviewers are saying if you have a choice between consoles the PS3 is the way to go.

Apparently the way to stop "fanboy nonsense" is to throw out some of your own, like pointing out a game is "crap" because of a .5 score difference from one site.

Sorry but the usual fanboy nonsense that guys like you talk wont work this time. You fail, hard. The gamespot review takes the time to talk about how the 360 version is crap compared to the ps3 version. Dont go around talking bullsh*t. It doesn't pay.

This isn't convincing enough, so people start bringing in the actual scores to throw around.

just got the ps3 version -the superior one (9 from GS vs 8.5 for the x360 version ).x360 version takes ages to load and looks total crap vs PS3 version.if u are getting the console version then ps3 has the better version

Have these people ever actually PLAYED a PS2 game?!

x360 version has horrible textures and lkoading times. x360 version looks like a ps2 game vs ps3 version

One guy throws out the ultimate insult.

F**K this Robbie guy. B*tch, if you dont have anything sensible to say, then GTFO. Dont come on here to show everyone just how retarded you are. Go do your mom or something. You didnt get it right last time you tried.

As usual, IGN gets accused of OMG BIAS.

starting to think that ign is a little pro-360...as gamespot points out that the ps3 version is clearly better

One user uncovers a vast conspiracy.

Yeah but whenever a PS3 one is inferior, they drop the PS3 a number or so.

And finally, we end with an upset 360 owner yelling about Resistance and Gears so he can really stick it to Sony.

This game will be great, maybe better than ME2. I would have to say it will surpass Demon's Souls too. I heard someone bitch that the 360 gamer will say that just to discredit a PS3 exclusive. Funny since Resistance was even compared to Gears after its launch and now nobody wants the 3rd Resistance now, poll shows 1/3 people want it within the 1st year of its release, that's very low.

That's all I've got. In the spirit of our last comment, I'm going to run my own poll. What's the big hyped game coming out in the next year that you want the least?

Holy shit, App Store. The copyright infringement is real. I didn't buy it, because I'm scared it'll make my iPhone explode and because the comments say the game's a generic zombie title with fake and misleading screenshots.

Playing Halo 5: Guardians, got REALLY invested in this one match. It was intense from beginning to end and I was using A LOT of Power Weapons because it was so fun. We were literally seconds away from victory when the internet cut off. So disappointed. :(
