What's the point of an mmo if it's going to use 2nd get mmo mechanics? They're all flopping at this point.

News Comments > Steamships Ahoy - ArcaniA: Gothic 4
11. Re: Steamships Ahoy - ArcaniA: Gothic 4 Oct 15, 2010, 23:25 Steele Johnson
 
I agree that some of the Gothic games have gotten a "bum rap". Gothic 1 was probably the best single player rpg I've ever played... and I've played them all. On the other hand, I hated Gothic 2 and especially Gothic 3. I could not believe how badly the games were designed. But the big surprise was how much I loved Risen! That game simply blew me away... and we all know that the game didn't get the greatest reviews. So I think I'll wait a bit and eventually give this one a chance?

The first game is one of the most overrated games out there.

News Comments > World of Warcraft: Cataclysm in December

Raided almost every night doing heroic runs. but im an worn the fuck out on wow. Personally I feel that Blizzard is releasing this addon just to try and screw over Star Wars. Im leaning more towards Star Wars. at least its somethng new.

I hate to break it to you, but Star Wars will be that same ol' formula that you've grown to love (most likely hate), but with a different skin and more talking npcs (yippie!). It will have all the balancing problems and defects that all new mmos have from the beginning. Sure, you'll see different looking environments, but.... that's pretty much it. Bioware would love to steal you away from Blizzard only to give you that long, drawn out work of grinding that you don't mind paying for. lol

First expansion I won't be buying, it went way to casual for me with Wrath of the lich king, with that said it will probably still be the best mmorpg around.

If you're saying that 'grinding' makes an mmo hardcore, then yes, you're right.

"MS: Kinect will break records."

I totally disagree with this statement. Gamers will correlate the Kinect with the Wii and it will completely tank. The Wii has proven that game designers cannot think in terms of hardware features and rather focus on genres. End of story.

"Kinect is for games ‘we can’t even imagine’."

And that's why there will be hardly any games that utilize the hardware. And most games will just be games designed with a regular controller in mind, and then ported to work with Kinect.

The Wii is the perfect example. Almost every game on that platform could be just as fun (or just as boring) using a regular controller.

The problem is that game designers aren't thinking about the hardware when they design their games. Most designers think of the game first (how the gameplay will be), and then the hardware is just what it runs on. With Move, Kinect, and the Wii, you have to think of the special hardware and build the game up from that. It just doesn't seem to be working that way.

It's games like Guitar Hero and Dance Dance Revolution that take specific hardware to make fun. That's how the designers need to think.

Brutal Legend took a long time to develop, it missed almost every milestone, and wasn't very good. So I suppose this guy has a point.

They had the general concept but just didn't have the flow of gameplay. The game definitely should have been slower paced with more strategic planning.

The next news headline we'll see about this will be "unknown source says gamers are already playing Duke Nukem Forever".

"Microsoft Patents Operating System Shutdown."

Yes, but Google just patented "Operating System Start". So now what will MS do?

Just by looking at the game, it's common sense that upper management was totally incompetent. It's as if they didn't even know what the developers were doing. Most software companies just have too much upper management these days. They outsource development jobs thinking that they'll get the same output for cheap, but what they don't understand is that their incompetence is what's really causing high development costs, not the developers. DOH!

Good news. Lots of talented people there. It's the upper management staff that should be let go (i.e. the people that do nothing and don't know what's going on).
