Studio ignores potential customers and focuses on what shareholders want: bad!
Studio ignores potential customers and focuses only on what backers want: good?


But I don't get the "it's in two parts!" complaints. I'd rather two great parts than one rushed, underfunded part.

So now we have 3 studios doing CoD, with each getting 30 months to make a game. That should make them much, much, much better.

Wanna bet?

Like I said, "much, much, much better" doesn't necessarily mean "good."

So....the thread is back a ways. But I fired up CoD Ghosts.....now...I have most of the games, and am a fan of the series when it was done right. I thought "It can't be as bad as they are saying right? I mean, it is 2013-2014, there is no way they can screw this up?!"

Wow was I wrong. There is no combination of settings that make the game look good. Period. It looks like Modern Warfare. They took several steps back graphically, and the net code is utterly terrible.

I think they are done. One can only assume a free weekend was because sales were terrible, as they have never even budged off of their price tag before. What a poorly executed game.

They're not done, I think they just realized 18 months isn't enough to make a new CoD. You can iterate, but not innovate.
So now we have 3 studios doing CoD, with each getting 30 months to make a game. That should make them much, much, much better.

Given how bad the multiplayer in Ghosts is, though, it needs to be more than that.

Well, true. But Blues tends to be a cut above. People often have reasoned arguments so I find I actually learn some things reading (and participating in) the debates here.

I won't lie - when the board was down I found video game news dull. I don't just want to see the news, I like knowing what a group of largely intelligent people think about the news.

Ah, Cutter. In every post about Apple he talks about how buying Apple means you hate America, but then he says he wants everyone to ignore an American company and buy from a Japanese one.

And, I'm sure, he'll see no issue with this logic because both these devices are made in China, yet only one of them has created a fairly large amount of jobs in the US.

He claims his diatribes come from morals about manufacturing, but it's just his petty opinions on which companies take his hobbies most seriously.

Sony is a Japanese company so I really don't care what they do in Japan. I do care what North American companies do because that affects me directly. Sony employs 150k people domestically. Apple employs 50k - out of which 35,000 of those jobs are dead-end, PT CSR/retail jobs. And it says nothing of the trade imbalance, the taxes they don't pay and the subsidies they get. Right now it's estimated that every adult US taxpayer has subsidized Apple to the tune of about 50k per person. Nor does it say anything else about Apple abuses people around the world as well. But you go on being a corporate apologist for them. It's all your good for. Must be nice to live life without a soul or conscience.

Who did I apologize for?
I just called you a giant hypocrite that claims to have values but really just lives to feel like a giant victim constantly under attack by everyone around him (well, it's true with me) and then spews the most ridiculous, naive hate at absolutely everything.

I can't even count the amount of threads here that have 1 comment, by you, that's overwhelmingly negative, accusing someone of something. And most of the time it misses the point, misunderstands something, or clearly makes a judgment on a misleading, clickbait headline.

But no, EVIL SILICON VALLEY. LARRY PAGE MAKES MONEY. Shakefist

What a fucking cuntstool.

Nor does Silicon Valley screw around with the price of material goods to intentionally gouge producers and consumers for easy profit. I'd call his article an apples to oranges comparison but that's unfair to the fruit representing Wall Street. Apples to Intestinal parasites? Yeah that seems apt.

At least you had movement controls in that game. I think here you just control the gun. Rambo walks, you shoot.

Which sounds kind of fitting for some of Stallone's movies...

Microsoft has the possibility of selling a console per sale.
Unfortunately for Microsoft this game isn't going to be the big system seller for them imo.
This game comes out on the 360 as well, and people who buys this are buying it for the MP not for the SP.
While I was playing on the 360 I was buying games my friends had so we could play MP.
In this case if a person wants to get this game with an Xbone but all his friends are still on the 360, well you know what is going to happen there.
If Titanfall was exclusive to the Xbox one and PC then yes this game would have been a system seller.
We will see how the sales numbers turn out.

I agree entirely. I want to play Titanfall. I don't know if I will, but I'm more interested in this game than nearly any other (yet I'll probably play Saints Row 4 instead of buying this, since I haven't yet.)

But I don't see myself buying an Xbox One for this. Why? What advantage does it have? Better graphics, but it's still a port so not significantly better graphics. A smaller user base, so probably longer matchmaking times.

Microsoft has a lot riding on this, but I think it will be another disappointment. It will probably sell really well, but like you said, for the wrong system.

It's not just EA, Microsoft really needs this game to be a massive success and you can bet they will leverage their major industry presence to ensure it is. From a business perspective it makes sense.

EA has little skin in this. They're distributing, which means they only make a bit of money. They have no long term investment here.

Microsoft doesn't, either, but Microsoft needs something to sell consoles desperately. This is a much, much, much bigger deal to them than to EA. EA will make a buck or three per sale, which in the long run isn't much for them. Microsoft has the possibility of selling a console per sale.

Wow, I thought it would take a year or two for XBones inferior hardware to really lag behind what was being done on PS4. I was really, really wrong. It seems like ALL of the third party, cross platform games run better and look better on the PS4 already. Crazy.

well to me the next-gen versions don't look that much better than the current gen ones. just the textures look a bit better but it looks perfectly playable on a $99 Xbox 360. you need a 1080p TV to really notice the differences and still a lot of ppl just have 720p screens. still not worth getting a $499 X Bone or $399 PS4 just for this game.

Xbox One is supposedly able to become more powerful over the cloud, but who knows if and when that happens.

They shouldn't look that much better.
Again, go Google what the CoD launch title on the 360 looked like. Ass. Pure ass. It didn't look even remotely like what Ghosts looks like. I mean, the difference is like Mario 3 to Mario World drastic.

That's funny. I heard you weren't actually born to a woman, but rather cloned from the preserved wang of Adolf Hitler.

Why is that I can not find this Thief game anywhere to buy for PC on a DVD? Its all download only... and yet the consoles get their disks and PC enthusiasts don't? Wtf.

Here at Amazon. Amazing, they are charging a premium for it now as we get close to a release of the new Thief. I saw this numerous times on amazon for $9.99, and lower, several months ago.

Or here on eBay.

Or you could just STEAL it from someone.

Good luck.....


That isn't Amazon selling it, it's someone selling it on Amazon, so I'm not surprised at the markup.
It's only $13 if you buy it used on Amazon, again from a 3rd party. Still jacked up.

Amazon has the digital copy for $6.99 http://www.amazon.com/Square-Enix-Thief-Gold-Download/dp/B009IXL5FO

I like how the Satanic Church has come out against the Craigslist Killer.

They aren't about killing.
They say they are atheists.

Why is satan used then? Do they not know what that represents? It means they are deeply religious and killing, well that's just one method.

It was just funny, she I think tried to link to them and they said hell no you crazy bitch. Our satan is a good satan.

I mean, it's a remarkably stupid name, but you need to learn what Satanists are and what the Church of Satan is.

It isn't devil worship. It's an atheist philosophy that uses Satan as a symbol of carnality and basically an FU to organized religion. They don't believe in Satan, let alone worship him.

Right it is as stupid of a name you could use. I still find it funny though, she says she killed in the name of satan, so yes lets ask what said worshipers of satan think. But oh yeah that's right it's all a mock, they are mocking everyone. I giggles.

As for Cutter's, I'm not so sure a lot of them aren't aware, things like the Bohemian Grove are disturbing. Why are people like that even doing things like that? Again it's all a big mock on everything? They sacrifice fake bodies under a Owl Statue dressed up looking like some sort of Klans Man? Really? CEO's, Presidents etc.. do juvenile stuff like this. Mind boggling.

Well, the funniest thing about the Church of Satan is their rule that you can't be pretentious.
Isn't their entire organization violating that rule?

Man, I wish that Cutter guy would stop shilling Cutter posts!



shill [shil] Show IPA Slang.
noun

1. a person who poses as a customer in order to decoy others into participating, as at a gambling house, auction, confidence game, etc.

2. a person who publicizes or praises something or someone for reasons of self-interest, personal profit, or friendship or loyalty.
verb (used without object)

3. to work as a shill: He shills for a large casino.
verb (used with object)

4. to advertise or promote (a product) as or in the manner of a huckster; hustle: He was hired to shill a new TV show.

That help clarify what shill means, sport?

I was calling it redundant. He's the damn producer. He made this game.

That clarify why calling a man that made something a shill for that thing is a bit redundant, sport?

If you say that a mech shooter should move like any sprinting man, that having tiny maps is good and that is wonderful idea to get a reward when you kill some ppl ( as if geting a BFG wasnt..)and the lack of depth (no hiding, no camping...too tinny maps for some flanking,too low no of ppl that makes strategy/tactic nonexistent...)its good then go play it. But better try play some Quake1 or even 128 players matches of Delta Force that we already had like 20 years ago and youll see what a good shooter really is.

Ah ofc there are some decent newer good ones but lately cause of the idiot console kids they make them way too easy and with too few ppl to be any real challenge

Number of typos and misspellings: at least 4.
Yet still calls others "idiot console kids."

It's really just average to good IMO, some people here are playing it up way too much. I logged 20ish hours with the beta and thought the movement and general flow of the game is excellent but the hitscan weaponry is all samey, the AI grunts are a waste of space and I thought the Titans themselves were extremely boring to use.

20 hours. In 6 days? You did over 3 hours a day?

I think that says a good amount about how fun it is. Based on that, I'd lean towards the high end of your "average to good."

People whined endlessly about the AI, but it turns out they're exactly what I expected - cannon fodder to blow the crap out of. Seems fun.

I'm pretty excited for this game. Excited enough to buy an Xbox One? No, though I still expect there will be a livelier community there than on PC. I'm not even excited enough to download the demo. And I probably won't buy it on the 360. Not even sure I'll ever play this.
But it looks like the most entertaining action FPS in a while.

There should simply be more viable options for fighting a 4 shield ship. If you don't come across the right weapon shop, most of the ships don't come with the firepower you need to take the boss down.

If finding an ion cannon (which alone is not enough) and a multi burst laser is the only way to take down the level 4 shield (or really if any specific weapon type is required for success) then it's not a well balanced fight.

There are a few mods that add a great deal of variety to the weapon loadouts, increasing the ways you can approach the boss fight and improving the game.

If you have only ever played on easy, and you have been able to buy every weapon you come across or "fully load your ship"... then this conversation is probably not for you.

Yup. A big part of the luck is finding the right weapons.
I agree, it does suck that there are basically two ways to build a ship to beat the second boss round (which was the problematic one, right?), but that's also part of the game being rogue-like.

It would definitely be nice if other builds could prevail. I remember the first time I beat the first boss round. I was heavy on missiles and drones. Then came the second boss round, which neuters missiles, and I was crushed. Not only did I not know there was a second round, but I didn't do any damage. At all. They shot down every missile I launched.

After beating the game on Normal I started playing on Easy more often than not. Easy just takes some of the luck out of the equation. The game is still a challenge, but you'll make it to the boss maybe 25% of the time instead of 10% of the time.
