Nah, I don't need a sandbox to have fun... sandbox is overrated. They learned a lot transitioning from Mass Effect 1 to Mass Effect 2, and hopefully they do the same with Dragon Age 2.

I agree. Open world can be quite boring if not done correctly (like most games). There's nothing wrong with an interactive movie. For single player games, I'd rather be moving through a story than trying to make a story out of nothing.

I'm starting to lose faith in Bioware. The last few games I played from them were just "so so" to me, even though the critics gave the games stellar reviews (not to mention all the hype). Their games are starting to become "wait for a couple price drops before purchasing" type games. Just my personal opinion.

I think PopCap should have put a little more thought into it before signing the contract.

It's about the whole experience. I love the little details. I really don't care how long they take; I'm thinking that GW2 is going to put subscription-based mmos out of business.

Actually thanks to the advent of PSN and XBLA, many of those indies are doing console stuff now too.

I agree. There are definitely some indie devs that did much better on the xbox 360 last year (and the iPhone) than they did on the pc. Same with ps3. So I have to disagree with Chris T. Consoles (and mobile devices) are enabling more ways for indie devs to make money, and they're starting to become more lucrative avenues than what the pc has to offer.

Big deal. Are they going to deliver another piece of sh*t and charge people $50 for it? I wish I could sell my sh*t.

It's gotten to the point where they aren't fixing Troika's bugs, but fixing bugs that were created by their changes to the game. I love the work they've done, but there comes a time when you just need to back away.

Why do you even care? Maybe they like working on it. Who cares?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brittany_Murphy

Abbreviated for brevity...

At 8:00 a.m. on December 20, 2009, the LA Fire Department responded to "a medical request" at the Los Angeles home Murphy and Monjack shared. She apparently collapsed in a bathroom. Firefighters attempted to resuscitate Murphy on the scene, and she was subsequently transported to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead on arrival at 10:04 a.m. after going into cardiac arrest. Cause of death is yet to be determined, but Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told the Associated Press: "It appears to be natural."

There's nothing natural about going into cardiac arrest at such a young age. The police are likely going to look very closely at Simon Monjack.

That happens to a lot of people. Natural causes can mean a lot of things. She could have had blood clots or a heart defect, among several other possibilities. My sister died from a blood clot when she was just 35. There was no explanation for it at all. So enjoy each day as it were your last. Happy holidays!

Meh. Once id's Rage hits the scene, this toon game will be forgotten quickly. They will need some major additions to the game to keep interest in the sequel or maybe sheeple will just lap it up anyway like MW2. <shrug>

Yeah, because id made so many great games in the past, particularly, shooters with rpg elements. lol

Nice. Is the game much better now? I never played it before.

Yes, it's a new and improved version of "Go kill 5 bunnies and bring me back their pelts".

Scavenge + Survival + co-op?

Shit. Game of the year assholes!


I agree. L4D2 is an amazing game. When I see posts about people not understanding its appeal, I question whether they even played it. Gamers have been asking for true co-op games for years, and finally a game designer has figured out how to make one the right way.

Job security is a thing of the past with most corporations.

So true. I work in the software industry and for the past 8 years or so, I've been worried about losing my job. With layoffs happening when a company has 1 bad quarter is the norm, there's not a day that goes by where you're not worrying. If you don't want a lot of stress in your life, stay away from software development (unless you're doing it for yourself). Not only do you work a butt-load of hours (basically no life), but you also don't get much compensation when the company does well (no raises after hitting a certain level, etc). And having clueless managers (i.e. the ones that have no idea what it takes to develop something), is pretty standard... which makes your job even more of a struggle. I should have been a plumber.

I just created a new petition that demands the features that I want in the game! How dare they release a game without the features that I want?
