GEncore commented on World of Goo:
Don't hold your breath.
GEncore commented on Eternity’s Child – Still Alive, Coming in ...:
You get extra points for responding to my whole post!
@Stratos - Yeah you're right, but again, this Comments section is to express our feelings on the game. If I feel the game blows, I'll say it. If the developer is reading this and feels hurt because I stated my opinion, then too bad. I won't say this game is awesome just to make him feel good.
@Draygone - Uh, that's just one review, it's not gonna automatically change my point of view on the websites, nor will your opinion. Haven't played Boingz though, so I can't say who was right there. Except for Daemon Hatfield, I just trust IGN's reviews more than WWW's. Doesn't mean I don't like this website's reviews, I wouldn't have registered if that was the case.
@longtimegamer - ""don't make the same mistake that you did on distructoid"?
Huh? What do you mean exactly?"
I mean don't let the comments of some guy on the Internet get to you.
Why wouldn't I be civil with you? I was basing my "attitude" toward Bernard on his previous comments on Destructoid, you it's the first time I've met you.
What you say is true and extremely helpful in real life (believe me, I know), but here on the Internet, I think it only goes so far. I mean, after all, if someone takes what I say too seriously, that's their fault, because like I said I'm just voicing opinions on games and in this case developer.
The Wii version isn't out, but after the PC version, it's guilty until proven innocent.
@longtimegamer - No, don't worry I didn't feel attacked or anything like that by your comments. Obviously when I typed that wall of text I was expecting comments like yours. And I don't take comments on the internet personal, you don't even know me; you're just commenting on the same page I am. And yes there were immature people on that site, but there were also comprehensive people, and more importantly, I thought the review was fair (at least the review, don't know about the score).
I understand you mean one has to think things through before speaking, but honestly I did. Obviously Luc Bernard could be an awesome guy in real life, but I can't judge him for that; instead only for his comments I read on various websites (this was before I read the much more respectful comments he made on this very article, though).
But obviously I care more about the game than the developer, and my point is they really need to get to work if they want the WiiWare version to be good.
"Hey Luc, it takes a man to own up and admit his failings."
EXACTLY. Which is why I was so pissed when Bernard originally, instead of, you know, admitting his failings, got angry at the reviewer and even some of the readers. Also why I used the word "immature".
"By the way please don't take GEncores comments discurrage you from coming to and comment on this site"
Oh, please don't. Don't make the same mistake you did with Destructoid. I'm just a regular guy commenting on a page.
"I know I handled it badly, but now I laugh about it I got over it and you should too. And this has managed to get my head sorted out and work on things in secret, and yes I did not get along with Joshua that is why we have both gone our seperate ways."
Wow, okay. I'm all for an attitude like this. It's the first time I've seen you comment something like this, though, so that's good.
Oh, no I wasn't discouraged from commenting here. I just wanted to share how I feel about the game. That's what the comments section is for.
Also if the WiiWare version ends up being good (I think this site tends to overrate games, I trust IGN more) I'll be the first one to say I was wrong.
I don't even know you personally so I have no idea what you are. All I know is what I read at that Destructoid article. Your words: "if you read the review I did my part fine, I wish Joshua my programmer would of listened to me about how I wanted things done ". Seriously? Are you kidding me?
Face it, you handled the whole situation extremely immaturely, and to me you sounded like a baby who couldn't stand getting some criticism. If you expected your first effort to be met with nothing but positive reactions, then you're in for quite a few surprises in life.
I can't believe this horrible game has been hyped so much. Even if it ends up being decent, which I doubt, seeing how unless they pull a 180 it hardly has more depth than a flash game; people shouldn't support that hugglebunny Luc Bernard. .Just reading the infamous Destructoid article tells you everything you need to know.
The guy (the game developer, mind you) even told some people "you have no life, all you do is sit in your PC complaining" because some guy said his game sucked. If he can't handle criticism, he should GTFO the industry (which apparently he's doing... what a coincidence). I also remember this one comment where he said he took all the blame for his game sucking, and then a few comments later he blamed his programmer "Josh" for the jump mechanic not being responsive. He also said he felt bad because Eternity's Child was his baby - look, I'm a customer, I don't care. If your baby is anorexic and has AIDS I don't care if it's your baby, I won't support it.
Luc had a very good relationship with Destructoid, so he expected them to be horrible professionals and rate his game high just because they were friends, which obviously they didn't because the game blows. I'm sure if Corbie Dillard or whoever eventually reviews this game scores it low (Bernard also has a good relationship with WiiWare World, go figure), you'll see comments of Bernard being pissed and saying "Come on, I put a lot of effort into this" up the ass, and probably also blaming people for criticizing his game ("I don't like this game"; says a reader "Oh, you have no life if you go around badmouthing games on the internet", says Bernard. This happened on Destructoid, so why not on WiiWare World?)
I'm not saying you all should boycott Eternity's Child just to spite Bernard, but like I said, unless the game pulls a 180 it will SUCK, and will absolutely not be worth buying, even for the bargain price. As icing on the cake, Bernard can't handle criticism and reacts like a 12 year old hugglebunny when his horrible game ("his baby") gets knocked, which makes me hate this game even more.
If I get banned from this site for stating the truth, I don't care. Just wanted to shed some light on how Bernard truly is, and how immaturely he handled the whole "your friends scored your game 1/10 because it sucks".
Before you go on and flame me, please, I encourage you to read the Destructoid article, more specifically Luc Bernard's comments and see for yourself: http://www.destructoid.com/destructoid-review-eternity-s-child-97583.phtml
GEncore commented on Review: Space Invaders Get Even (WiiWare):
This site overrates games so much, I find it to be pretty unprofessional. I never know if I should trust your reviews because 80% of games (except the clearly bad ones) get a 7 or higher.
GEncore commented on USA WiiWare Update: World Of Goo & Art Style: ...:
For people unsure about the $15 price tag for World of Goo:
World of Goo is well worth $15 because it's one of the most unique and fresh games I've seen in quite a while. The fact that it's made by two guys aside; this game looks fantastic, even stacks up to some $50 retail Wii games. It looks like an amazing experience unlike anything on WiiWare, and for that alone it's worth the money. People complain that WiiWare is full of crap, but then when amazing stuff like this comes out they don't like it because it's "5 dollars too much"? Come on. Don't buy a crappy falling blocks game on WiiWare for $10, and some NES game for $5. Get World of Goo instead, I can assure you that, unless you absolutely despise puzzle games, you won't be disappointed.
I'm not buying it right now because, like I said, I don't have the money. If I did I'd be already downloading it.
I want World of Goo so bad but I'm out of money =(
It's up at 9 AM Pacific Time. I can't wait for this, but I'm currently out of points
Will anyone gift me this?
GEncore commented on World Of Goo Coming To US WiiWare October 13:
Any official word on pricing WiiWare World overlords?
GEncore commented on New WiiWare Games: Cave Story And Boingz:
IGN said "You can expect World of Goo in October - maybe VERY early October". Do you know anything about this WiiWare World folks? If it came out on Monday that'd be great...
I absolutely cannot wait for this game. Too bad I'm out of points =(
