    Rules

    by THE @Brannox

    Rule #1: When you make a kill, give your reason why you are killing. Just taking it out isn't all that inspiring. Whether you truly dislike it, you strike out of revenge, you feel that there are other important titles that should have made it, or you have legitimate critiques, explaining your kill is necessary to validate its death. Yes, even to those of you who kill because they're good (Because that makes sense :joy: )

    Rule #2: Please keep the updated list for the benefit of other players. Cross through your kill to identify what's been chosen.

    Rule #3: You may kill another game after only 3 other people have made a kill OR if 12 hours have passed from the last overall kill (not necessarily your own). This should be plenty of time for others to get involved.

    Rule #4: If you fail to give a reason, make a 2nd kill without allowing the time to pass/proper amount of players a turn, or if there is an unforeseen issue up for potential review, your kill may not be recognized. This rule is subjective to the situation and hopefully will not be implemented.

    Rule #5: there will be a straw poll for the final two. Please vote for the one you want to win, not lose.

    "Responding late to the marketplace" the game. Not interested in Destiny, not interested in knock off Destiny either?



  • @TokyoSlim valid criticism, but Maybe it will be waaaaaay better than Destiny? Maybe?



  • @CGamor7 It's possible, but that'll have to be a surprise. I'm not gonna like EXPECT it. :)



  • @CGamor7 Oh, THE huh? I don't think I warrant THE. I just am moi. X-) But thanks.

    This one is difficult so to start, I'll go by arbitrarily eliminating if you don't have a solid title yet. Regardless of whether I think it will succeed or not.

    It's not a game it's a CG trailer that was announced far too early to capitalize on their popularity. Also I'm against it if it's another open world, their last open world game handled like month old milk tastes. Just make a linear story game or make an gameplay-driven open world (probably just the story game considering their uneven skill set), trying to make both in one only makes each worse.

    Here's another one without an actual name which probably shouldn't have made the list.

    It's just a title screen at this point, but otherwise it's past due and seems a little unnecessary to me. A fourth entry in a series with such a rigid structure would need to defy that structure in some way, but the fact that it's called Prime 4 makes me think it isn't set on doing that.

    All there is to go on is an implication of its concept, and even that isn't exciting to me.

    This kill came down to either eliminating titles I've never heard of, or target a franchise or franchises that I don't like. And this kill is the latter. I have nothing against it per se, but its not a game, personally speaking, I have, nor will ever have, interest in from both a genre and franchise standpoint.

    It's an early access remake of an ancient PC game that Generic Internet Commenters have been nannering on about being better than Bioshock for almost the past two decades, what's to like about that?

    I guess I'll alternate (other kills permitting) and go for one I've never heard of. With that being said, with about three or four remaining aside, killing off games will be excruciating.

    I don't own an Xbox, or a good pc, so I can't play this. It looks really beautiful, and that trailer gave me some feels... but I'm killing the game I'll never get to play.

    The first game is pretty bad, and easily the biggest dissapointment I've ever had with video games, I don't expect this one to be different, and I'll have to wait for the opinion of people that think similarly to me on the first one, as it really boggles my mind how people love it so much

    Yeah, I didn't find Ni No Kuni to be anything notable either, especially since the climax is literally tacked on and the main characters are held back by their twee Ghibli-ness (which may be deep enough for a movie, but which is certainly not enough for a 50-100 hour JRPG).

    But anyway, that's 'dead,' so I'm killing off the nostalgia vaporware. Sony's 'E3 of dreams' is half games that were announced too early and, while that may be entertaining, it is still bad practices. Maybe 7 Remake will be worthwhile when we finally see the real game, and maybe it'll be just another unfinished open world game like XV.

    This is a 2d mecha game from vanillaware with the description of "The game follows the themes of surging despair and the demise of everyday life following a destructive catastrophe."

    So... nah. I can skip this.
