    Before or after the Washington Post review gets pulled? :P

    Scores starting to roll in for Doom finally, and it is currently at an 80 on PS4, where it has enough reviews to qualify. Decent, but not great. And likely not as good as Overwatch, which means I'll end up in 3rd.

    Most sites classify a score of 80 as "great", or at least "very good".

    Yeah, I was waiting on that, but it got another dozen or so reviews after it and the score didn't budge. Oh, well.


    Btw, gave Battleborn another week. Recorded at 75. I win.


    Well, I would win if I could. Still pretty close for those who actually can.

    The Xboxers really like DOOM. It's got an 88 on that console and is only a few scores short of meeting the required minimum.

    *86 now and at the minimum.

    Might have to pick it up. Not a huge fan of DOOM but well it's one of those cult classic games things

    Yeah, it's performing better than I expected. I felt like the game played like a low 80's deal. My only guess is the game's focus on old school style of shooting must be hitting all the right nostalgia notes.

    **Recording DOOM at 87.

    Uh, anyone who's planning on making a last minute sub for Kirby Planet Robobobobo(etc)t should know that reviews are coming in roughly 40 hours.

    Looking at the scoring averages...well, I don't have much faith in Mirror's Edge, but it might come down to a SINGLE point between Anime and Red. Just a few hours to go...

    Crap. Mirror's Edge's release date is actually June 7th. That's really close to E3...
  • redwing42redwing42 Classic Console Junkie Full Members
    So... ummm.... Overwatch is starting out with a 98. I'm sure it will come down some, but still, I'd like to congratulate my opponent in this race for second. It was a good fight.
  • TG BarighmTG Barighm Member Full Members
    I wouldn't call it yet. The user reviews are quite low, so I'm sure there will be a fair number of content complainers that will drag the score down a good amount.
  • TheAnimeManTheAnimeMan Member Full Members
    edited May 2016
    Yeah, but the user reviews have to probably due with content and comparing it to games that have been out for YEARS in the same genre (Team Fortress 2 I'm looking at you)

    Honestly for a brand new IP there are a large of number of characters and they all have slightly different mechanics. That is a lot of content right there. Sure there maybe 12 maps but those maps are not small either.

    Maybe so, but there are many day 1 games out there that provide far more content for $80.

    Not on PS4.

    Not saying the game isn't worth it, but when people argue that the game isn't competitively priced compared to games like DOOM or Uncharted 4 which both feature very enjoyable multiplayer components along with a full campaign...they have a point.
  • TG BarighmTG Barighm Member Full Members
    So...Shaymin would need to score a 98 to beat Anime now.

    Should I just call it?
  • ShayminShaymin The Gratitude Pokemon Halifax, New SealandFull Members
    I mean, Mirror's Edge will be good, but not *that* good.

    Yeah, but there will be no prize this year 'cause my monitor decided to die, so whether or not Anime actually ends up finishing first or what the overall draft order looks like doesn't really mean much this time around. I can always adjust things later.

    I also really don't want to wait until just a few days before E3 to announce that I'm done running this game. Feels too much like work. Literally. Watching other peoples' assets for months at a time. Not really talking save for the odd update. Getting kind of dull. I would still play though.


    Anyway, Overwatch recorded at 91. Anime wins (officially).
  • redwing42redwing42 Classic Console Junkie Full Members
    Pretty close competition this season. The quarterly picks certainly worked better than drafting all up front. Much less likely for a game to get delayed out of the window at that point. Thanks for running it again, TG. I know what a pain it is to track all this stuff.
  • TheAnimeManTheAnimeMan Member Full Members
    My thanks goes out to all my adoring fans (who confuse me with the youtuber with the same nickname). I also wanna thank my family and friends for cheering me on. All the random reviewers who really appreciated most of the games I had picked, and I really wanna thank TG Barighm for hosting this competition this year along with all my fellow competitors who kept this challenge a real nail biter all the way to the end.

    HERE'S TO 2016-2017 SEASON BABY.

    Now you guys need to figure out who will run the game next year.
  • TG BarighmTG Barighm Member Full Members
    edited June 2016
    Mirror's Edge Catalyst not scoring anywhere near close enough to win. Recorded at 74. Shaymin would need to score like a low 60 to lose his placing and Mirror's Edge won't end up anywhere near that, so it doesn't matter what its final score is.

    Sorry, but it's just too close to E3 to play the waiting game. What you guys SHOULD be doing right now is signing on for next year's game (and finding someone to run it).
