    Every question so far has been answerable by looking on IGN, and if I'm not mistaken, he can't possibly be online 24/7 so there's going to be more waiting then simply googling for your answer. No one is every unbiased in this sort of context, proven by the fact he doesn't own two of the sony consoles.

    yes but how fast are you able to find that question and if it's not on IGN how long does it take untill you get an answer from them? I'll guess it takes at least a day, if you even get your answer, right?

    IGN doesn't answer user questions, that'd just increase their workload x1000000.
    Fact is, absouletely any question you can ask could be found instantly on google, and quicker then someone else is going to respond.

    In terms of reviews etc. well, IGN, or whatever your preferred site is, already has them.

    It's a very simple concept. I have played a lot of stuff. People are going to ask questions about games on the forum anyways. Why not just create a topic where i can provide a non-bias opinion on each game. Yes it is non-bias. Reason being I am not a fanboy in anyway. Just because I do not own the consoles does not mean i don't have throughough knowledge on each game within them.
    To quote Aristotle "All Knowledge is Rooted in Experience" I have the experience, and I'm offering it so you don't have to waste time on something. It's how all knowledge is derived. Also, what would the difference be if I said i owned them and you were none the more knowledgeable? Sites like IGN offer wordy reviews and don't really say the single most important factor in any game. Is it FUN. That's why I'm here.

    Thanks,
    Blaze

    I don't understand what we're meant to ask you.

    If we ask you opinion then yes, we're getting your own bias opinion.
    If we ask you for a fact, we can just google it.

    What is the point of this thread?

    More silly questions. Like anyone knows if they're will even be a beta. Considering the game is not one game, but three. Its doubtful they would have a beta, nor would it make sense to have one. They've kept the game under lock and key for many years, why would they release something as substantial as a beta before the game. So I'm going to say never. Btw if you are curious, Starcraft 2 will be released in 3 parts, First Terrain, than Zerg, than the ---'s, while supposedly the first game will contain FULL multilayer, just not the campaign.

    yes but how fast are you able to find that question and if it's not on IGN how long does it take untill you get an answer from them? I'll guess it takes at least a day, if you even get your answer, right?

    Bro. Your kind spazzing out over nothing. Once again the whole Sony thing is really stupid to get hang up on. It's not like I haven't played both of them, I just don't own them. Lot of money... Anyways just chill :D

    For christ sake obviously if people are asking questions like is Flyff worth playing than someone is looking for input on SOMEONE from the forums. If you really want to view it as bias that I am speaking from personal experience and it relates to my tastes fine. But than its impossible to ask for anything unbiased because you'd have to ask a ------ing machine :D. I was bored, i was offering my experience with many games. Simple. Either you guys are just trying to be unbored like me, or busting my balls. Regardless the thread is still simple. All Knowledge is Rooted in Experience. I've got that knowledge from my experience. Just ask.

    Meh, if I was asking about whether a game is worth it or not I'd want more than one response which means this topic is effectively useless :]

    1/ Starcraft 2 Alpha has already been sent out, I'd reckon this at least implies a Beta.

    2/ You quoted as to say experience is important, that's just the issue, you don't HAVE experience with PS3 and PSP. May be you play it at a friends house, or where you work, or whever your source comes from ; but you don't play the games as a regular player plays them, you don't have the extensive research into a game that say IGN provides or simply an owner of the consoles who plays consistently.

    3/ Your opinion is bias, don't even argue with this one. Opinion by it's very definition is a bias concept, you have your opinions/ your views on what makes a good game, a good console, and what people should do. You are -not- a safe source.

    4/ I really don't see how facts such as Starcraft 2 Betas, and other questions that could be asked in any way relate to your experience. Google is such a good friend.

    5/ Again, you say the problem with IGN is that they don't factor on the biggest aspect, ala "FUN". But that's the exact opposite of the truth, the reason IGN has to ignore a games, "fun" factor is because it is catered differently to every single individual who's going to play the game. Your opinion is going to be VASTLY different on what makes a fun game compared to someone elses, ergo you can never really recommend a game ; especially if you're going to base it on such an unreliable aspect. IGN values replayability, graphics and so forth, people judge what matters to them most and the review tends to lead them in the right direction.

    6/ I'm doing this because I'm bored, but also because I see no use for you.

    I've been wondering about this for a while, maybe you can answer.

    When will I buy an Xbox 360?

    *Both Hands up* You caught me. I've just been ranting without any regard to anything i say. Just about everything you say is true. Even though there are a few holes. For example, it is theoretically impossible for anything to be a safe source. I'm not real sure your fascination with the sony stuff still. You would be none the wiser without the knowledge that I do not own them.
    Regardless of Google, i was just trying to be a nice guy. Why? Because it quite irritating when pompous asses whine about answering questions like "Hey where do I find this?" Reply: "OMFGWTF YOU ARE SUCH A ------ING IDIOT STUPID NOOB AND SHOULD DIE, WHY DONT YOU USE GOOGLE OR THE SEARCH FUNCTION OMG OMG OMG" There still is no such thing as unbiased anything unless it is from a calculator. Oh and theres a reason there is 50 billion review sites (OMG DONT CRUCIFY ITS EXAGGERATION). I'm just another reviewer, why am I any better or worst than any other? Has some of my advice failed you in any way? Btw thank you, there is nothing more I enjoy the arguing. I've probably missed more to point out but whatever. Maybe I like Yahoo more than Google.
    Uhm. Ok I see you wanted to get in on the "ohahhaah this can't be done" but your a bit late to the sarcasm/cynicism party, thanks though.



    P.S. I don't like Yahoo more :P.
