Obsidian Wouldn't Mind Tackling A Chrono Trigger Sequel.

WTF? I enjoy their games despite the flaws, but that seems to be an incredibly bad idea.

First, Chrono Trigger doesn't/didn't need a sequel. It was a perfectly contained story. It'd be like making a sequel to Planescape: Torment.

Second, it already had a sequel, Chrono Cross, which proved the wisdom of reason #1.

Third, JRPGs are require the exact opposite of Obsidian's strengths. They're linear as hell, require tons of polish, and need a high level of "cinematic-ness".

Holy crap that is gdamn awesome. TF2 is just what Valve does as a hobby now. The amount of screwed-up backstory they've injected into an arcade shooter like TF2 is ridiculous. The middle left panel on the last page is especially cool, or rather what is cut off by the panel edge is intriguing.

I've read Devs who agree with this, that games aren't art. (and really, few are, but there are some ... Bioshock for example I would say is art)
Bioshock has style and a neat story/plot twist, but it's not art. I would say something like Everday the Same (http://www.indiegames.com/blog/2009/12/browser_game_pick_every_day_th.html) is art.

Shame about all the controversy on this. These guys left the STALKER team and ripped off technology and ideas, there's a huge lawsuit going on between both teams.

Heck if you played both games you can see a lot of similarities in ideas and even the graphic engine.

Game dev drama! Links to articles about this?

Way to get defensive guys. It's just games like that seem to work better as a beer and pretzels game around a bigscreen TV. You don't exactly see an abundance of this kind of game on the PC so I can't be the only one with that opinion.

You're using a circular argument- there are less fighting games on PC therefore it's not a PC genre, therefore you shouldn't make fighting games for PC.

Besides, Capcom has ported plenty of its older fighters (and other games) to PC during their heyday, though without any fanfare. There's also a hardcore community of gamers playing older arcade fighters over the net using Kailera and GGPO.

How are they much better? Any serious fan is buying a $100-$150 arcade stick if they don't have one, and all of those work just fine when you plug it into your PC.

What they need is crossplatform play to increase the player pool. If that means GFWL, then so be it. That's the only good feature it has anyway.

If you were serious about trying it, you would stop being a self-congratulatory dick for one second and download the free trial.

They see all the folks watching streams and youtube casts of games, and they don't think "great fan-base" but rather "lost revenue". Of course, since they are an amoral profit machine what would anyone expect?

Where the fuck are you getting this information? The replays will be free, just like they are now. Stop making up bullshit to feed your paranoia about greedy publishers out to screw you.

Supreme Commander has a nice replay system and it worked on day 1. I might buy SCII when the replay system works.

The replay system works great now. This is about implementing a built-in replay sharing system through BNet.

It's like half of you people don't know how to read around here and the other half just maks shit up instead of bothering to look at the article.

No kidding. The shit that gets made up just to further rationalize Blizz-hate over the base game + 2 expansion pack issue. How does it feel to have the IQ of a creationist, Paketep/LittleMe?

Tell that to me when in august this year I lose access to my steam games on the same computer I've been playing them since I first bought them.... (well ok I'm not losing access to the half life games because I've got oh my god the physical media.. this makes no sense!).
And how exactly does this catastrophe happen, 4 months from now?

I feel bad vibes coming out of this game. I mean, if the game is so moddable why offer a civilization through DLC as a pre-order bonus? If the game is so moddable it would be easy to replicate the Babylonians.
Civs have fully 3d rendered and animated leaders for diplomacy. There may be other stuff too, who knows how Civs may be unique from each other this time around.

But i'm more meh with the enforced Steam lock via the use of Steamworks. I prefer to buy games to own and not to rent for full price. That said, i'll pass, will wait for a major price reduction (under 10 ) and then i'll rent the game from Steam. As i learned over the years, patience IS a virtue
Not this shit again.

It's too bad. Vanguard had some nice ideas, very original classes, and a really nice world for exploring. The game itself was really clunky though, bad graphics, bad performance, bad animations, and they implemented more player-friendly travel much too late.

Not really. The portraits are non-ugly now, but the rest of the graphics in the screenshots (icon, textures) are simply Avernum 6 assets, antialiased.
