News Comments > Dirty Bomb Alpha Access

This is nothing more than a different approach of crowd funding that the developer controls. No time line expiration, still rewarding folks for their investment into the game, etc... I'm sure we'll see more evolution of this concept. If consumers dig it, I'm sure it will continue.

Left4Dead was the first time I had seen a colorblind option in a game. I was extremely grateful for it. Glad more folks are paying attention to it.

News Comments > ARMA 3 Trailer

The new logo approach looks like they're trying to emulate BF3. At least they shed the "metal" branding.

I've was a huge fan of Flashpoint and bought ARMA, then tried the ARMA II demo. It seems they cannot shake the bugginess. It always feels slightly off and fighting failed script triggers in the campaigns or glitches was annoying as hell. I couldn't bring myself to continue down that road.

I've really enjoyed Gearbox's work lately. If they recapture the original Aliens in feel and bring a solid Co-operative experience, I'm totally down for it. A Borderlands or L4D style co-op would be spot on, IMHO.

Which started first, employee disloyalty to companies or companies to employees?

Probably each instigated the other, but it isn't like there's a such thing as a "company man" anymore, which moots your argument to me. People get valuable training and education at one company and take it to another very quickly. I certainly will - you rise quicker jumping to new companies than staying with one because you're filling a hole your company may not currently have.

Yeah, I'm sure that talent jumping to competitors is what set in motion the corporate axe to trim out the remainder. Had nothing to do with market share or maximizing profit.

In my experience, I looked for a better gig before the axe swung or the phase out. Not everyone is that fortunate, nor do they always know what/when it is coming. In a perfect world, you're always ahead of it. Sometimes you're advancing, sometimes you're surviving. And it's not always conducive to raising a family by uprooting every year or two.

I'd say the employee behavior is the outcome due to the corporate environment, not the cause.

This isn't new or exclusive to the entertainment (movies and/or game production) industry. This corporate behavior (binge and purge) is global. It mirrors the markets and reinforces "the new loyalty" model and philosophy. Sad really.

News Comments > The Man Who "Killed" Starsiege Tribes
10. Re: The Man Who Mar 29, 2011, 23:44 Sty
 
I don't see how dragging up this dead old horse to beat is going to spread positive awareness of Tribes Ascend or Tribes Universe.

I am a little confused in the article by the attitude of it's someone else's fault or an impossible task that could never be done right.... It was what it was. They chose to do the gig and acted (willingly) as champions to the hot-and-cold community. He and Alex were at the helm and made the wrong decisions along the way. A few liked it, most hated it and then it bombed in a big way. Lesson learned (hopefully).

I don't know. The folks who made the original what it was and the mix of new and old in T2 are miles away from this IP. I doubt anyone will ever get the recipe right again. I wish HiRez luck.

News Comments > Lead and Gold Free Weekend; Free DLC; Sale
10. Re: Lead and Gold Free Weekend; Free DLC; Sale Mar 25, 2011, 12:54 Sty
 
I picked it up a long time ago during the $5 sale. Thoroughly enjoyed it and worth that price to me. It reminds me of TF2 set in the wild west, some of the mechanics and themes reminded me of Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood's multi-player. The server browser is very simplistic and it was always hard to tell what you were connecting to, so lag and pubbing was always variable. I believe they have done some improvements on that front. Sometimes a terrific connection and great folks to play with, sometimes not so much. So mileage and experience will vary. Clan play in a LAN scenario was by far the best experience with this game. We all had a blast.

Something more believable is another Civil war between the Libertarians who want freedom, and the Neocons and their brainwashed supporters who want to enslave them.

Already done... it's called Fallout 3.

News Comments > Treyarch on Bugs
1. Re: Treyarch on Bugs Feb 8, 2011, 21:19 Sty
 
I think the sad thing is that it is pretty much expected now and most gamers attempt to ignore/tune it out.

Maybe I'm getting fuzzy in old age, but I remember patches being more for off-the-wall stuff that was missed or very odd/off-brand hardware configs back in the day. And then there was no patching for consoles. If it was a buggy console game... no one bought it. But I also remember what I would consider to be pretty extensive QA departments overflowing with hardware and people.
