Dungeon Keeper Mobile is gross but at least it's free up front. Godus is full of microtransaction and social game cow clicker hooks but you have to pay for it just to get access to that. Molyneux's hypocrisy is amazing so me. I used to really respect him but his new direction is just bad for the medium.

What exactly is a crock? The fact that Last of Us swept the awards or something more specific?

The Last of Us winning for "Most Innovative" is a start...

That's a great game but it's a zombie-themed action-adventure game, there's nothing innovative about it other than the fact an action game is well written.

Another example to go with reality television and Transformers movies that shows how the mainstream public are largely idiots who like garbage.

Sane world labels Pachter's track record as a joke. And the press who quote him for easy clicks as lazy.

I'm waiting for the backpedaling excuses when they release it without FOV adjustment.

That wouldn't be balanced for lean.

Tomato, tomato...

It's a pretty big difference. Under bankruptcy protection, they can restructure their debt and operations to theoretically come out of it a smaller company but one that can still make games. Under full bankruptcy, the company would be liquidated and closed down. They're still in a bad way but this way, they might come out of it.

News Comments > Remember Me Developer Bankrupt
3. Re: Remember Me Developer Bankrupt Jan 31, 2014, 10:06 Parallax Abstraction
 
I really enjoyed Remember Me and it just barely missed my top 10 last year. It definitely had flaws (combat for sure) but it was great for a first effort from a new AAA studio and it had a fantastic world and some neat mechanics. It's the kind of thing that could have been amazing if it got polished up for a sequel. But of course, because this is a new IP, Capcom shat it out without any marketing and then wonders why no one bought it. This really sucks, I wanted to see Dontnod get another kick at the can. This industry's obsession with only backing the safest bets with any marketing and then complaining when no one buys new ideas is going to be its downfall.

I have some issues with Early Access and how some companies are abusing it but I'm very happy to see this doing well. Their tech demo is limited but shows incredible promise. I also know the guy who was the original face of this project from another forum (he's since moved on to another developer) but he was confident in the team's ability to make something great. I can't wait to see more of this.

Given this studio's near constant lack of quality output (Alice being the one title I can think of that anyone was even remotely fond of), I still can't believe people gave him $200K.

From what I've been reading and watching, this game is a steaming pile, full of bugs, input lag and crash issues. I must say I'm shocked that a game backed by both Kevin Dent and 505 Games would be an unfinished mess. Seriously, shocked.

It's time, Nintendo: Kill Wii U and think big.

"It's dead, Jim."


Same thing people said about the 3DS too, that the market had "moved on" from such things. Funny how little crow we've seen eaten.

Don't believe the "dispelling HD myth" article. Stay away from Seagate drives, they're shit, and have been shit for a very long time.

I'll take Seagate over Toshiba any day. I was quite disheartened to find out that Toshiba recently got into desktop drives and are appearing in a lot of OEM desktops now. Their drives are hot garbage.

To save someone else the time, that Nintendo thing from Slashdot has nothing new to add.

The "enthusiast" press always needs someone to hate. It used to be Sony, now it's Nintendo. Controversy drives clicks.

Do they define laptops as PC"s? Does anyone still buy towers and monitors? I can't remember the last time I saw a desktop PC.

They do count laptops. Full Windows tablets I'm not 100% sure about but I think I read they were counted too.

Bethesda is a company like no other. They kept releasing hits after hits, add mod support, rich content dlc, highly configurable for pc user etc. I have good faith in them.

Yep. Aside from the fact that they're still using an ancient engine (and outright lied to their fans that Skyrim was an all-new engine, it was just a rebranding of GameBryo that they got to keep when it's makers went under), their support for the PC scene is incredible. I really hop their next-gen games will actually be on a new engine.

The concept of this game is cool but it involves both 505 Games and Kevin Dent. I'll definitely not be going anywhere near it until there's plenty of reviews and community opinion on it.

Or maybe, just maybe, it's your fault for posting something stupid and then acting like a bratty little child when called on it. Grow up.

This is the best they could do for Winamp? Seriously? Considering Spotify isn't even available outside the US or UK, they've basically cut the Winamp audience by a massive amount. Absolute idiocy. Well, at least there's xmplay.
