Anyone who is putting up a final review with a score for a multiplayer game before the public is able to access the servers should be ashamed. It's as if they learned nothing from SimCity and Battlefield 4. Controlled review environments do not represent the final environment. Giant Bomb has put a review up but without a score and have reserved the right to alter it accordingly after the public release before locking it as final. Anyone who has done otherwise shouldn't be trusted.

PC gaming is doing rather well in the recessionary climate.

Not so sure about the new consoles though. SONY has no money and its stocks are junk status. MS created a livingroom spying device that few people actually want.

You are wrong about the XBOX. Just like the new windows, its selling rather well. Microsoft is so ubiquous that if they put shit in the box (which in a way they did) it would still sell well. People are stupid.

Just look at how well Apple products sell if you want prime examples of people paying too much for too little. Also, bullshit TechCrunch clickbait is TechCrunch. Given that no other sites I read regularly have so much as mentioned this, I'd say they just needed a good clicks-through-controversy piece over there.

Man, even when focusing on crappy free-to-play browser and mobile games, Disney still can't run a gaming division to save its life. Yet they keep trying...

Few other than George Broussard can run a company in so legendarily inept a fashion, crashing it to the ground after spending 13 years making one of the worst AAA games in recent memory and still fall backwards into fortune by having it bought in the end. And he still thinks he's some game industry messiah if you read his Twitter. Amazing how often those who most deserve to fail just keep on succeeding.

Mobile sloppy seconds?

At least it's more or less the same price on PC as it was on mobile. Usually these crap ports are $1 there and $10 on PC.

Too bad it was deemed pretty much the worst AC...


I've played every AC and while I didn't hate it as much as some, it was Namco's attempt to CoD-ify AC and it didn't work. Supposedly the upcoming free-to-play one is going to have a full campaign that's going to be more like the originals which I really hope. AR is worth it if you can get it cheap on a sale.

I will give them credit for stripping out GFWL too, especially given that this game has zero community right now. Now they need to do it ro Dark Souls.

The Windows Phone that people still don't want.

Given that Windows Phone growth more than doubled the industry average last year, I'd say you're probably wrong on that. We just rolled out a bunch of WP8 devices at work. It wouldn't have been my first choice for a phone but due to cost constraints, it was either this or BlackBerry 10 and there's no way we're hitching our wagon to that.

So far, Windows Phone is pretty good. It's got issues to be sure (most of which look to be getting addresses in 8.1) but from a usability standpoint, it's great. My users are not techie types and are accustomed to BlackBerry OS 7 and they've gotten proficient at Windows Phone with almost no training from me at all. Conversely, when a few of our people got iPads, I had to spend an afternoon teaching them how to get around on them and still got questions for days after.

The platform has a long way to evolve for sure but it's a lot better than many think and a lot of those who crap on it likely haven't even bothered to try it. That said, if it was up to me, I'd have an HTC One.

This is going to be like watching two drunk idiots beat each other up at a bar, when you don't give a shit what the outcome is.

Two scumbag enters, one scumbag leaves. Maybe 3D Realms going away will finally stop George Broussard from thinking he's God's gift to industry commentary, despite running a company and all its employees into the ground by spending 13 years to make a horrendous game. Somehow I doubt it though.

Exactly. This is the company that sued Samsung over the design of the damn corners of their devices. This company is as bad as any patent troll, except they actually produce stuff at least. Hypocrisy runs in Tim Cook's veins.

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.

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.
