You know, there are times when people rant about things that are not only funny but makes perfect sense. But the key factor in ranting about certain subjects is the actual involvement or witness the subject in play. Which brings me to the topic of one great reviewer Angry Joe.
I've watched his videos ever since his opinions to Mortal Kombat vs. DC and each video afterward are clean cut, true, and legitimate. He gives good reasons, throw some comedy into the mix and gives a overall take on the game as a whole. Unfortunately, he is really close to making me defect and leave the so-called Joe Army.
His first strike was towards a Sonic game called Sonic Free Riders. Now granted, most Kinect games are not 100% accurate and the holy grail of motion gameplay. Yet so far the only ones that obtain such status are "Dance_____" games. Now, without me playing the game, I can tell of a few things wrong with the game. First off, it's back to the crappy Air-style racing. Meaning every jump, trick, and possible action sequence during the race gains AIR in order to race but it can be used up very quickly. Secondly, cookie cutter slideshows and plot....which has none by that matter. And for trivial matters, the music was passable to listen to. But not for Angry Joe. Instead of just pointing those things out, he tears the game a new asshole relentlessly. I swear by the way he bitches about the game and constantly egging on about it in his future review videos, you would think that he's another avid preteen Sonic fanboy that bitch about yet another failed Sonic game like it's NextGen.
"It's too fast. It's nauseating. It makes me dizzy. You can't control anything." Yahtzee anyone? and watch him say the same shit about Sonic Generations for Modern Sonic. Only difference is, he'll be sitting on his ass!
Now for his recent attack. His first video about this game was reasonable. It barely had any content and most of the favorite characters have been erased from the list today. But he made a joke about the possible expansion. Yep, the game is Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Now I'm not one for modes. Spectator Mode, Whoop-te-do. Although I am intrigued about the new characters and stages, there is the fact that there are new gimmicks and moves added to the base characters in the game. Plus the possibility looking at their new move sets and seeing how these new characters function. And even though I HATE the fact that Phoenix Wright is in the line up there may be some hope that he might actually do well in the game. But what does the almighty Angry Joe do? He goes into an ALL CAPS RAGE!!!!!
Seriously? Seriously?! He's bitching about modes, modes, modes, pussy ass characters that no one has ever heard of, all while comparing them to the orgasmic glory that is Super Street Fighter 4. Maybe it's the fact that possibly the majority of console players out there aren't hardcore readers of Marvel comics. But those that are may have a good advantage point should they know what their abilities are in the comic book. Next argument is that because of the balancing maybe Phoenix(Jean Grey) won't be such a cheap bitch anymore by weakening her attack and giving her more life. That way she won't die in one combo. The thrid OBJECTION! is that it's just the beginning of that game, so there might be a chance that my three hopefuls, Megaman, Cyclops, and Gambit might still be DLC later on. And the ultimate argument against his bitching is that he hasn't even played the damn game yet.
There are many possibilities of potential that this belittle expansion can bring to the gaming world. More characters to tamper with for hardcore players for EVO 2012 and the tournaments leading to that fateful day. More patches and characters that we have no idea who they might add. And Rocket Raccoon. Raccoon. Meaning for me, there is a furry team in the making. Felicia, Amaterasu, and Rocket. A cat, a dog, and a raccoon. The Furry Fury or The Freaks. Either way, there's a good reason for me to get this game. And who knows, my serious team may have Wesker, Zero and Phoenix Wright. That attorney might play like gambit for all I know.
