Red Dead Redemption 2 is it the new Rise of the Robots?

Below is corporate hype published by the Sun 2 days ago (on the day of the release Red Dead Redemption release.) Since this article was wrote the Metacritic score for this game has dropped to 6.7 on Xbox and 7.6 on PS4. Spider Man and a huge host of other games have a much higher on Amazon RDR2 scores 4.3 these decent but not great scores are in direct contrast to the reviews of mainstream YouTube gaming channels and Mainstream Media.

The Sun Explain.

“Red Dead Redemption 2 is ranked BEST game of the decade on Metacritic

We described the long-awaited title as the “best game you’ll play for years to come” – and everyone else seems to agree”

I can’t review this game as I am yet to purchase the game and after reading comments from people that have bought the game on Amazon and checking out its user rating on metacritic I am in no rush.

This is beginning to feel like Rise of the Robots all over again…. I am not saying that RDR 2 is going to be as bad as a game as Rise of the Robots was but the corporate hype and silly high reviews this game has received do not seem to be being echoed by all consumers.

For those that are not as ancient as me; Rise of the Robots was a game that recieved silly hype. And silly high scores and good reviews by many gaming mags at the time (not all though.) One magazine rated even better than Doom which was one of the earliest and best attempts at a first person shooter that still plays well today.

Rise of the Robots game was terrible, broke and boring. I very much doubt RDR2  is that bad but I also am beginging to doubt its going to be as great as many YouTubers and MSM are saying it is. Rise of the Robots killed many gaming magazines off as they were seen as untrustworthy and biased, could RDR2 begin a similar trend?

I need to play the game to decide what is happening but Metacritic ( users scores it 7.6 on PS4 and 6.7 on Xbox at the time of writing this article) and Amazon reviewers seem to show its a good solid game but long winded, bugs, slow and “too many chores” keeps coming up over and over.

I love open world games so I will get it one day (probably) but I will wait for a price drop it allows time for Rockstar to fix the glitches and bugs and start an online service for the game as well which will most likely also be full of bugs and glitches upon release.  

If this game turns out to be as average as some are saying it is this game could be remembered as one of the most epic fails in the modern day gaming industry.

Spiderman, God of War, the Witcher 3 and huge host of other games  all score better than RDR2 on Metacritic user ratings and Amazon, worrying times for Rockstar. 

 

Metacritic scores show RDR2 was not as well recieved by the consumers as it was by YouTube gaming channels and the gaming media.

ADELE

What am I doing right now?

The answer is listening to Adele!

Why would I be listening to Adele?

I am trying to understand what this huge obsession is that so many people seem to have about Adele, “Hello” has recently hit half a billion hits on YouTube. I know modern day music is shit and Adele is undoubtedly less shit than most but I don’t think she is anything special! In fact I think she is overrated and her being so overrated is mainly due to the poor quality of corporate music, after listening to shit like Justin Bieber and Nicki Minaj anything that is not corporate pop shit, sounds amazing even if it is just corporate middle of the road shit.

I have never rated Adele, I’m not saying she is shit I’m just saying she ain’t as good as everyone seems to think she is. I find her music boring, soft, whiny, depressing and full of self pity, I much prefer to listen to something a little more motivational. I admit she is better than the bad bunch we have at the moment but she ain’t brilliant. All I see is a miserable fat girl singing average, middle of the road songs about being a miserable fat girl!

Call me old fashioned if like but give me Guns n Roses, Johnny Cash, Rage against the machine or the Prodigy any day and turn this self pitying shit off.
