a slow build-up to friday’s epic conclusion!!
That's just like every one of my childhood memories. :(
why don't we get to eat ice cream all day? i hope i get fired again. life would be so much better if we got to play in sandboxes…
More like the Xelerious Subjective! I'm sure it is a fine game
Why do you upload at 3 am Kris!? wait why am I looking at chainsawsuit at 3am…
Gamerzzone is the only reliable source.
Surely you mean, the only reliable sauce.
It's interesting how many franchise reboots end up with reviews like these, or just decent ones. In ten or twenty years we'll be crying about how bad the new 5d cutting edge reboot of halo ruins the old series.
Yep, that's what happens when you come up with the concept on the Monday of the week you ship.
If it ruined the old game retroactively, at the point of review the previous titles wouldn't have been classics anymore, and instead of ruining a franchise Xelerious Objective would have actually been a long-awaited return to form.
I want to know what the ending is now, I can't wait another day.
Wow that 3rd panel is depressing. It's like… damn.
Truth is stranger than fiction.
Ths is what happens when you mess around with soul boigas… it has consequences!
I feel bad for him too! We've only known him for 3 panels but I hope he pulls through tomorrow.
"darn it! i KNEW we should have added more killable sluts!"
"If I could travel back in time" … tell me they're going to hire the Time Ruiner to take out Sato.
But he's the time _ruiner_. That would make things better. (Wait, isn't the TR dead?)
Quit using your impeccable logic to refute my implausible theory.
The Time Ruiner couldn't possibly make an appearance in strips that occur chronologically after his death! That would be crazy-sauce. :-D
Kind of disappointed with this one. We all know that even if the copy from the review stayed the same, this game still would have garnered at least an 80%.
we gave this one 72% – our lowest rating EVER
even Daikatana got a 75%, despite the profuse ocular bleeding
I need to start saying "life-endingly bad" in casual conversation.
Time to dig some more boiga holes
Did Action Champ walk away from this? Because it looks like this game…
People need to turn off the nostalgia filter. The original Boiga Bruddas wasn't the greatest game of all time. Hell, it wasn't even the greatest game of 1987. It's just popular enough that, over the years, you've forgotten all about its flaws and remember only the fact that you enjoyed playing it. If you do an actual comparison, you'll see that all the Boig you loved about the first game is still present, and the only elements that changed were simply not that great in the first place. I mean, seriously, how can you critique the Bruddas' character development when the first game was just a bunch of bouncing heads? And the voice actors now are just as terrible as they used to be, you're just complaining that they're different. Come back when you learn what it really takes to make a game in today's industry.
The thing is, in 1987 even having voice acting at all was revolutionary. Boiga Bruddas wasn't perfect, but it did a lot of things that, for the time, were incredibly revolutionary. Technically BB:XO has all the features the original had, but things have changed a lot in the last 23 years, and a lot of those revolutionary things that the original did are just standard now. Xelerious Objective isn't as good as game for 2010 as Boiga Bruddas was for 1987, and it's the fact that the sequel has lost the original's spirit of innovation that people are so upset.
Are.. Are we still talking about the game that went into massive landfills, only to be rejected even by the shifting sands, the toxic melting plastic killing all plant and wildlife within 50 feet? The one for the craptastic shibata nsx, that crappy 24 bit console with no other games??
The NSX was misunderstood and ahead of its time.
Wait… I'm confuzzled.
Is Boiga Bruddas: XO a real game?
Yes. It was on the little-known Sega Uranus console.
No, this is all just an elaborate joke where even the commentors are pretending the game is real, and mimicking the sort of arguments that real people would have over actual games. Personally, I got most of my material from actual things I've said defending real games, except with some exagerrated self-righteousness added in for flavor.
I'm still excited for the HD port of the original Boiga Bruddas to XBLA and PSN. But if they "fix" the broken English or the unfinished levels… goddamnit, it won't be the same.
"a slow build-up to friday’s epic conclusion!!"-kris
Dude, unless you're planning on coming to each of our houses and orally satisfying us, I don't see that epic conclusion happening.
Wait…is that what you WERE planning, did I blow the surprise?
Hopefully we all get our surpries blown
Anybody watch X-Play?
That game reviewer looks like Adam Sessler…
Obviously Kris hates penny-arcade. I mean why else would he make a comic about one of their ideas. Other things Kris hates: PVP, Boobs, Cthulhu, ans especially hamboigas.
These are unfair reviews. It starts getting good after the first 14 hours of gameplay! And the replay value, think of that!
