Oh no, a games reviewer is bad at a particular game. Clearly a reviewer must be good at all games for their opinion to qualify, amirite?


"bad" is a funny way to spell "less intelligent than a pigeon".

you do understand the guy playing is a financial reporter and not a real game reviewer right?

Beyond the first few minutes it took him to get over the first segment of the tutorial he's mostly just "bad". Without context as to why he was missing the literal writing on the way, basing his intelligence on that gameplay is presumptuous at best. Woo for another nontroversy.

I side with qwueri on this one. "Reviewer" and "expert" are two totally different things. This is a whole lot of drama made out of nothing. Just a bunch of folks with unrealistic expectations and a desire to scapegoat this dude. "Kudos" to the pigeon, though. They aren't the brightest of birds out there, but we do tend to underestimate them.

Well on the optimistic side, at least maybe this game will get more recognition.


It probably will. I really liked the smooth old style animations on it.

What context could possibly redeem this level of shit?

if a person is considered a reviewer or similar game related job i think they should have at the basic skills for it plus that section of the tutorial wasn't exactly hard someone with the basic skills of playing games or even just common sense could figure that out faster and even games that aren't platformers often have parts following that same concept of that section when it comes to any sort of jumping

Well he tried, though it was painful to watch after a couple minutes- poor guy. Cuphead on the other hand looks better than I hoped, so excited for the release now~

Basically anything that could be taking his attention away from the game itself. I.e. talking to someone else, distraction from the environment, or even just focusing on one element of the game too closely given that he's admittedly pretty terrible at that kind of game. His gameplay is pretty clear he's missing the tutorial text on the background. This is a really dumb conversation to be having as some sort of controversy.

This is the same "journalism" cancer that spawned Goober Gate and is killing vidya.

He played the victim card claiming alt-right's were trying to ruin his career by sending "hate". No really mate you just suck at the game

He was in Germany. How much beer preceded this gameplay?
