Hello everyone, I feel like getting all of your brains working with this thread.
Many people complain about things like the bad netcode, not getting titles, and all the other various glitches in this game.
It would be a lie to say this game has NO glitches. It is a pure and simple fact that this game has many bugs and this decreases the quality of the game considerably for many who play it.
Here is the interesting question. We all know this game is indiputably buggy. Yet many of us still defend it bugs and all and play the game with loyalty.
What if by doing things like this, we are showing companies that we will rationalize having a bad game, and thus show them they can produce games with poor quality standards as we will still play them and buy them, and even DEFEND the game?
Games used to have VERY little bugs. Now that patching is available they tend to send out games with tons of crap in them figuring they can fix them later because you will buy, play, and defend a favorite title anyways. Or they may not even fix the bugs at all knowing you'll still do the same.
So, consider those who blindly defend the game despite glitches that your attitudes may be hurting the entire game industry as a whole when you do so, not just for this game but for others that may have similar problems. This community right here could be showing a large corporation that they can feed us crap and we'll take it anyways, thus showing them they can save money by making crap and branding it correctly.
Food for thought.
Totally agree Erik we need to make sure that we get these problems fixed I would hate a generation when we have nothing but buggy games. Kudos and thanks for making a thougtfull thread.
I call Superman 64 to the stand.
My theory is that yeah, some of the glitches which cause cause the game to freeze right before a fight or have the announcer on loop screaming FIGhT! Happen to me, but very rarely and same for a majority of other players of this game, stuff and bugs like this had to of just barely made it through these certifications, or maybe they just don't know how to fix them without causing more problems? This game may just have very intricate or poor balancing.
I understand that You guys have sent them numerous e mails about these bugs and glitches etc.. And it's soooo fukced up that these game companies aren't allowed to communicate with fans until contact BS is met. But that's the price for the Sony advertising I suppose.
Just throwing it out there, do they game companies lie when they say fans are their everything? It's mind boggling like I said how they wouldn't be more in contact, but that doesn't mean they aren't aware.
If things like the sackboy 3 epidemic back when this game first dropped, Drake gun loop, Parrappa boombox glitch( still out there eh), and Other game breaking glitches were out there, than a patch and news would not be far away. Unless they just run out of money and can no longer support the game, but at least we have word that something's coming.
Now it looks like I'm defending the game.. Im not, just very neutral. On one hand, it's unbelievable that all These bugs and glitches are present for amateur tournament players and how frustrating it is, but I still doubt they would kill off another portion of the players left by ignoring their dedication.
I play this game A LOT, a lot a lot a lot . And Helll, I even rep radec who gets a terrible rep and is very hard to play well. Despite all these bugs and glitches i still have big a chub for him as I did in the beta and this goes the same for many other players playing. All we know is that this game has potential and they can only learn from their mistakes and improve on everything else.. Oh, and wait forever for balance and words from the devs.
