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.

Mainstream media is carefully selected journalism.

Internet censorship has undoubtedly been stepped up this year as it has every year for at least the last ten years. They are slowly taking our freedom in the name of our security. Benjamin Franklin once said “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one” and yet the attacks on our freedom continue.

The government claim to be at war with online extremism but who are they after? They’re after us. It’s the people of their own nations they are trying to silence not ISIS, ISIL, Islamic Fundamentalists or the Taliban. This war on “terrorism and extremism” is quickly being turned in to a war on peoples freedom.

Bloggers, Vloggers, YouTubers and political Facebook pages are being highly monitored and censored. In most cases the people being attacked are not extremists, terrorists or even that controversial they are just political aware.

Somebody has obviously decided that the Internet is no place for the truth in fact they would be much happier if you would just carry on reading the propaganda printed by the mainstream media instead, if you please.

I believe in freedom for the papers, I say let them do and print whatever they want, if they want to print government approved propaganda then so be it. I also believe in freedom for the people let them talk and be heard and let them tell the truth without being interrupted, censored, oppressed and attacked for it.

The government, Google and Facebook definitely do not respond well to criticism and seem to have a genuine hate for democracy and your freedoms. I would like to bet mainstream media faces not such oppression when they spread their government approved and backed hatred.

The mainstream media consists of carefully selected and conditioned people. They have to be conditioned to the point of believing the shit they print or even worse for just not caring.

The governments have lost the argument so bad that all they are left with is removing it. People like me that have spent years spreading this are now silenced, you will find us if you look but the mainstream will not anymore. But they can’t silence us all.
