SAILERIUS'S PROFILE

Sailerius

Something happened to me last night when I was driving home. I had a couple of miles to go. I looked up and saw a glowing orange object in the sky. It was moving irregularly. Suddenly, there was intense light all around. And when I came to, I was home.

What do you think happened to me?
Vacant Sky Vol. 1: Conte...
I died once. (Complete Edition Act II+ now available!)

Blackmoon Prophecy Review

It wouldn't be RMN if people weren't desperately scrambling for excuses to delegitimize every review they disagreed with.

3-4 hours is plenty of time to form an opinion of a game.
I normally don't disagree with reviews. The problem is I think the reviewer is reviewing games they don't like and scoring low because of such.

It's like someone reviewing action movies who dislikes violence.

I really doubt someone is going to go to the effort of seeking out games they think they'll dislike, downloading them, playing them for several hours, and then spend hours writing a review of it. I just don't think it's likely that someone would waste that much of their own time for no personal benefit instead of playing games they intend to enjoy. It seems more likely to me that the user is just playing highly-recommended games.

Hero's Realm Review

This is a pretty well-written review and I'd agree with most of what you said. Consciously replicating the flaws of another series or genre doesn't put those flaws above criticism.

To put it another way, you cannot really release a demo and expect not to be judged on it. If you want to release another demo, with some other limitations but making a better showcase for the real game, please do so and I will amend my review accordingly.
You raise a good point. It's too premature to have an RMN page up for the game, so I'll be removing until there's a newer version.

Ars Harmonia Review

I won't be pig-headed about it if you give me a good enough reason to drop the star rating, but for now I don't see one.
Well, for one, the final version is going to have RPG battles. We were originally planning to have a prototype of the battle system ready for this release but we ran into some serious bugs that killed the time we would've spent on implementing it. As a result, all the supporting quests (such as finding items and weapons) were also cut.

Ars Harmonia Review

Thanks for playing and for the review. I agree with most of your points, although it seems like you didn't find any of the puzzles.

That being said:

and feels like a technical demo much more than an actual game.
That would be because it is a technical demo. :) Most of the gameplay and polish had to be cut for the contest release version but we're in the process of implementing it for the next version. That being the case, I would appreciate it if you didn't give a star rating for an early beta, especially as there has already been a newer version released since you played it.

Pom Gets Wi-Fi Review

He even praises the game's graphics.
And then says it deserves 0/10, which to me means there's absolutely nothing positive to say about it.

0.5/5 is 1/10, which means there's very little positive to say about it. He did say there was very little positive, not absolutely nothing.

Why can't minority opinions be "taken seriously?" Minority opinions are the most valuable when trying to decide whether or not to play a game. I always read the lowest-rated reviews when deciding because they tend to best illuminate the flaws of the game which blind fanboyism is eager to gloss over.

To insist that all reviews that don't conform to the same opinion should be disregarded is lunacy.

Maybe I should get back to reviewing.
So I suppose you're super happy and proud of karsuman's review of Vacant Sky then?
Why not? He's entitled to his opinion and provides ample justification for why he feels the way he does. I'm not sure how that's relevant to the discussion at hand.

In case you missed it, Diedrupo, I'm still wondering how that's relevant to the discussion at hand.

Minority opinions are the most valuable when trying to decide whether or not to play a game.
But if the minority opinion is whether or not you plugged in your toaster or read the manual beforehand to understand how to toast things... how can you think that is valuable to buying a toaster or not?

I mean sure, it's good to show players hey, some people have a really hard time with this game, take it with a grain of salt, sure. But there's a fine line between that's the game's fault or if that's the player's fault and that's a really hard line to distinguish.

Then it's up to you as a consumer to judge whether or not it would apply to your experience. For example, a bad review of a toaster might say "I accidentally left the toast in for too long and it burnt the toast; it should just stop cooking when it's done" and you might think "oh, well, I'm a pretty forgetful person, so maybe I should look for a different toaster."
