Please pre-order. These douchebags convinced the politicos in this state (RI) to float a 300 million dollar bond so kurt schilling, (a multi-multi- millionaire) could finance this piece of shit.

I paint houses for a living.....anyone know a state where I can set up a studio to make my very own RTS? Brood

The brilliance of MS. They had the lead OS on PC's along with two gens of gaming consoles and only now, towards the end of 2nd gen are they talking about ways to get both to complement the other in a meaningful way.

I hope none of the suits up in Redmond are scratching their bloated heads wondering why they are losing ground by large percentages each year to other companies.

News Comments > Why the Syndicate Remake is a First-Person Shooter
35. Re: Why the Syndicate Remake is a First-Person Shooter Sep 12, 2011, 23:30 Hump
 
I'm sure Starbreeze will do justice to the game but the title will have the same issue that games like Shadowrun faced.....they insist on tagging the game as a defacto sequel rather than use the IP as a starting point to expanding the scope of the original while leaving open the possibility of doing a proper follow up. Simply putting "a Syndicate Universe Game" would make a LOT of folks more open to whats being done. Unfortunately, like FASA not being open to another naming convention to placate the hardcore may very well kill the studio.

funny how Nadeo has fostered a vibrant and engaged community with the Trackmania Ip and not nickle-and-dimed the fan base while making plenty of revenue.

Keep sucking that shareholder dick, guys.

The original was totally underrated (the multiplayer part) shooter that blew CS away at the time. This piece of shit sounds nothing like the original.

I don't see the problem here as long as the matches are on maps designed for a lower number of players.

I'm not sure why people think bigger always = better.

want to make profitable games? Don't go public. Don't answer to shareholders. Stop paying management far more money than those who do the actual work. Put managements offices in the same room as the work being done. Once you start building washrooms that are management only you are wasting money on a system of elitist assholes who are being paid far more than they're worth. Management shouldn't be above washing toilets or fetching coffee. In the end, a room full of management can't make anything other than paperwork. A studio full of artists, coders etc can organize enough to get a game made.

The bot hitting the divider at 1:33 seems to be a sort of derogatory callback to Homefront and Frontlines (Kaos).

Anyhoo, I'm amazed at the level of visual fidelity the game has over Frostbite 1 tech. BC2 was a fun game but online the visuals looked even more dated than BF2.

Please don't tell me that, heaven forbid, the suits are starting to realize they need to come up with new business models that are in line with the way people want to play their games and not whine about piracy "killing the industry".

If this is such a big deal with Valve, why don't any of the other digital distributers seem to have the same problem with EA?

Logic has a very simple answer to that. No other digital distributor is financially secure enough to deal with the consequences of losing major EA franchises.

If Valve is really planning on holding their ground on this matter, then they're either hoping that EA will see clear results in terms of loss of sales from not having the game on Steam, or they're betting that they'll make more money from the companies that do cooperate than they'll lose from EA walking away.

It's a matter of creating a precedent. If EA sells their DLC without giving Steam a cut and there are no reprecussions, then other companies will follow suit and Steam could stand to lose a lot more revenue than just what they make off of EA products.

Think for a moment of Activision. CoD map packs are routinely at the top of the Steam sales charts for weeks. If those went to in-game sales that give Steam no cut... then how much of a loss is that alone, not even thinking about the masses of other DLC ridden games out there?

Great observation.

I noticed Martha Quinn looks better than any 52 yr old woman Ive ever seen.

On the flip-side, poor Nina Blackwood sounds like she's been gargling with Jack Daniels and unfiltered Lucky Strikes for a few too many years.....
