This has saddened the game’s creator, Tomonobu Itagaki. He said, In general, I’m going to guess that most of the people reviewing the game weren’t given a chance to evaluate it properly.”
This attitude of reviewers don’t know how to review is the same sentiment from the developers of the PS3 title, Lair. Back then Factor 5 went as far as sending out a “review guide” on how to properly review their game.
Itagaki is a shallow man who thinks he’s owed something just because a few games he made while at Tecmo were well received. I’m sure those who reviewed Devil’s Third did give it the proper evaluation it deserved. I mean, the design of the main character, Ivan, alone looks horrible. He looks like a bad rendition of Hakushi (Jinsei Shinzaki).
In this grand episode of the Hart & Usagi Podcast we talk about Capcom’s idea to essentially do the free-to-play model with their DLC for Street Fighter V. Matt talks about his history with the Twisted Metal series. Also listen for the rage on Randy Pitchford and former ESPN “personality,” Crunch Buttsteak.
