I knew this was going to happen. When you go from the video game business to the music tutoring business, you should expect profits to decline drastically. What a bunch of fools. All their fans raised the flag on the forums, too. DOH!

This is good news (if true). This game has so much potential. Hopefully they'll have a forum for game design input.

"More charges for Rock Band 3 DLC."

When your new game sells like shit because you didn't do what your fan base wanted, take it out on your fans and milk them for more money. DOH!

I very much doubt that sales will be that high. Devs struggle to design games made for motion, so the software will be pointless. They may get a spike in sales because of holiday and hype, but I think it will die off fast. Most people want to relax while they play games anyway.

News Comments > Tribes Universe Interview
5. Re: Tribes Universe Interview Nov 2, 2010, 12:42 Steele Johnson
 
Did everybody miss the part of it being an mmo? It's not going to be a Tribes shooter remake or the next shooter in the series. They bought the Tribes franchise in order to make an mmo with it. That doesn't rule out them allowing other developers to extend the franchise by making another multiplayer shooter.

They're simply set out to make an mmo. Period. From what I gathered after reading the interview is that it's going to be similar to Planetside (not a bad thing at all) where you attempt to hold control or take control of different areas. Sounds like fun to me. Their biggest challenge is obviously game design. Planetside didn't quite get it right, so hopefully they look at all the games and determine what went wrong and then propose fixes to the model.

What's interesting is that SOE is currently working on Planetside 2. And I have this feeling that both games will be released around the same time.

Basing it on Tribes 2 worries me. Starsiege: Tribes had a very unique feel, and it was lost with Tribes 2. Not to say Tribes 2 wasn't fun; just saying Tribes 1 had something special that no other game had. Tribes 2 leaned towards a more military feel that a lot FPSs already had. I hope they change their direction.

Yes. I'm thinking that Rock Band 3 isn't going to sell as well as some people think. The problem is that the new features that really stand out are for the hardcore (i.e. minority) and the instruments are very expensive. The thing about Rock Band 1/2 is that it was accessible to the masses. There's nothing really new for casual players in this one. Bad move I think.

Lol wut. T3 was by far the complete opposite of T2 and much faster than T1. Vehicles were borderline useless because you can get around maps so quickly with just your jetback.

T:V was definitely not faster than T1. See this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HOAaixGw27o&feature=related

That's showing Tribes using a mod. There is no way that you could get that high up using base Tribes.

One game the stands out as a truly innovative FPS; Starsiege: Tribes. To this day, nothing compares.

I think DOTA is a bad name/acronym anyway. They should just create a new genre and come up with a name that actually describes what it is.

I agree. Tribes 2 and T.V. were both fun, but nothing compares to the original Starsiege: Tribes. I hope the people making this game have all played the original. There's no way it will work with just the name. Here's hoping they don't f&%$ this up!

They better not give Tribes a bad name! I'm really hoping this becomes what I can imagine.

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

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
27. Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm in December Oct 4, 2010, 15:59 Steele Johnson
 
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.
