"I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. [laughs] Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like [coughs] tears in rain. Time to die."
Despite IGN giving it a low score, they're still parading the banner around.
I used LP videos to get me through "Fear Effect" recently; some are fun (depending on the player). Personally, I don't think it will hurt sales. Many gamers still like to experience a game for themselves (some people, however, enjoy letting others think for them).
I won't be able to get the game for a bit (got other stuff to buy first), but I'm gonna try to stray away from any LP's or anything. And most LP's suck since the commentary either doesn't match the game or just isn't entertaining.
I came across a funny LP of a couple of German guys (speaking in broken English) playing Downpour when I was looking for a clip of the shower scene to show my friend today. It was quite humorous, to say the least.
