I'm hopeful but this is the team that made the Grimm episodes which were absolute garbage.

The press: Should stop giving this two bit hack a voice. He doesn't know anything, is almost always universally wrong in his predictions and is a good indicator of exactly nothing at all. I wish I could get paid a lot of money to talk out of my ass and never be called on when I'm wrong.

It's true but I can also appreciate that he needs publishers to fund his future projects and given that the industry is so small and that everyone knows everyone else, he might find it harder to find someone willing to put up money in light of this. Kotick is a dick and everyone knows it but other twit executives remember things like this and unfortunately, they have all the capital.

The irony of that statement coming from someone who proudly proclaims that he steals games is too funny.

Having an antivirus program running while playing usually never a good idea period.
Bullshit. It's retarded not to have one running, even though we'd all prefer not to have one running because of the performance hit.

I haven't run an AV program on my desktop since 2004 and it has never had a virus or spyware, not once. You don't necessarily need AV if you know how to avoid viruses which isn't exactly that hard if you know what to look for.

Caveman, this thread wasn't originally about you being a piece of crap thief either but you started it on that. If you feel entitled to play the game without paying for it, your opinion is pretty much moot because you're not Raven's customer and thus meaningless to them. The excuses people like you will come up with to justify ripping others off is hilarious.

Pachter is a clueless hack analyst who is saying things to make the companies he works with happy. And the gaming press still swoons over him despite him being a completely useless source of information. In other news, the sky is blue.

I hope they have a driving model this time that doesn't make your car feel like it's just rotating around a pivot point. The horrible handling is what wrecked the last game for me.

Apparently Surreal Software was one of the studios bought from Midway by Warner Bros. and supposedly they are still developing This Is Vegas. I can't possibly imagine what that game's going to be having been in development this long.

AvP was a critical flop but unfortunately, it seems a well known brand can still sell something, even if it's crap.

News Comments > Alpha Protocol DRM Details
18. Re: Alpha Protocol DRM Details May 2, 2010, 21:17 Parallax Abstraction
 
I seem to recall revocation being available but maybe that happened after the fact. I also don't think that if it had been as Sega is doing it with Alpha Protocol, that the response would have been any different. The rhetoric then was "activation sucks", not "activation's fine as long as it's done this way." I fully admit that Sega's doing activation in probably the best way possible this time but I also think people's attitudes to activation in general have become a lot more tolerant is all. I'm glad Sega has agreed to remove it but given that most major publishers have a weak record of living up to their promises, I think I'll believe it when I see it personally. Was the DRM ever removed from Sacred 2? I know that Ascaron commited to that but given that Ascaron is out of business now, I wonder what will happen now.

7. Re: Alpha Protocol DRM Details May 2, 2010, 18:01 Parallax Abstraction
 
You know, I seem to recall when BioShock was released, it used a scheme almost exactly like this and people went loco. Interesting to see how Ubisoft's system has since lowered the bar of expectations. Though I admit that 2K didn't commit to patching out the DRM (which hasn't been removed, it's just got unlimited activations but is still tied to the servers), this scheme isn't any different than that one but it seems to be OK now. Interesting that.

But...but...Michael Pachter said the exodus would be tiny and overall have little to no impact on IW! I mean it's Pachter, he can't be wrong can he?!

News Comments > Morning Consolidation
3. Re: Morning Consolidation Apr 26, 2010, 13:43 Parallax Abstraction
 
I did read the article. And the reason the Metal Gear games don't come out on the Xbox anymore is that those re-releases flopped. As I understand it, the updating of the first title in the Solid series on the Gamecube also didn't do that well. There's a reason why MGS4 for the 360 has never been announced beyond just technical ones. It makes no sense for EA to spend the money porting Mass Effect 3 only to the PS3 or even 2 and 3 because it's a trilogy series, meaning that it takes all 3 games to tell the whole story. If you're a PS3 owner who hasn't played the series, it won't make sense to jump in at ME3.

Yeah, cause putting only the 3rd game of a trilogy storyline on the PS3 makes perfect sense and will result in a ton of sales. Michael Pachter: Still getting money and press for being a complete idiot.

This just in: Michael Pachter is still a two-bit hack that the gaming press lazily trips over themselves to quote and never call out the 75%+ of the times he's wrong. That he's quoted so often is proof of what is wrong with gaming "journalism" these days.
