Would get it if it fixed HW2 to be multi-threaded and support all resolution and aspects. But yeah... Complex 8 has to run on it, or else it's worthless

What would it even do with multi-threading? It was designed to run on an 833MHz/256MB RAM system. Even an HD update wouldn't use up a single core.

Hey, EA - if you're going to shut someone down for practical business reasons, do so, but at least say that's what you're doing.

Stuffing 'realignment', 'small adjustment' 'better focus' and 'priority growth' all into two sentences is condescending and dishonest PR doublespeak.

So this is a publisher who is kickstarting something? Why are people backing shit that has a publisher involved? Let them fork over their own fucking money.

Creston

Privateer Press isn't a video game publisher, they're a miniature/tabletop publisher who just happen to own the Warmachine IP.

It's sort of the way that Wizard of the Coast is a publisher involved in the D&D video games.

Also Pacific Rim. What the hell? Giant robots against giant sea monsters? What the fuck was Del Toro thinking....

I'll say it again: It's either going to be totally awesome, or totally cheesy.


These need not be mutually exclusive.

All these things being said and so far, nobody mentions that Heavy Gear sucked. Period.

That's because that's an opinion, and a minority opinion. Don't state it as if it were an indisputable fact. The review scores - especially for Heavy Gear II - were high, and a lot of people cite it as a favorite.

You want to 'give the fans what they want', and yet they have clearly shown that they don't want what you're giving them.

Stop evaluating other funding and start evaluating the product. Find out what people like about Heavy Gear and make that game.

If I'm making a prototype widget, and I let you buy it, telling you upfront is a prototype only, with the final product to be presented at some future time, it doesn't somehow become a finished product because I accepted payment, nor am I 'tricking' you if I told you upfront that it was only a prototype.

Damn Slim, RIP. I'll be reaching out to Box Car Willy and Zamfir before it is too late.

Too late for Boxcar - by about 15 years.

News Comments > Thief E3 Presentation
14. Re: Thief E3 Presentation Jun 14, 2013, 14:48 Blackhawk
 
I'd prefer a classic Thief game, too, but:

They said from the beginning that this was a reboot. It isn't the same Thief games we used to play, and it isn't supposed to be. The Thief franchise was dead. The old games are still playable, and nothing they do will change them.

I'd rather have a good, atmospheric new game (by any name) than not have it. My concern is whether they can make a good new game (that may or may not remind me of a classic.)

It's like watching the Dark Knight trilogy and complaining that it doesn't have enough spandex and day-glo. Same basic setting. Completely different experience.

When discussing console prices, don't forget inflation.

The NES, in today's money, would cost $426. The XBox would be $387.

Because there are many, many fail-safes designed to ensure that innocent people don't get executed by the state.

Of course, those fail-safes sometimes fail, and the process itself is extremely inefficient.

News Comments > FreeSpace IP Sold for $7500
13. Re: FreeSpace IP Sold for $7500 Jun 7, 2013, 12:02 Blackhawk
 
I love Freespace and Freespace 2, but - let's be honest, the space sim market is very, very niche these days, and Freespace is an IP that hasn't had a game in 14 years - much of the market has never heard of it. I can see why they'd have trouble selling it.

It's a great IP, but there isn't much money to be made off of it.

You have to realize that all the controversy around SimCity and EA is completely unknown to 90% of the gaming market. The vast majority of people who buy games don't follow every bit of gaming news. They may read a review, or they may just pick up what looks appealing to them at the store, but they don't have Blue's News on their daily read list.

I played Unreal on my old Intel Celery 333Mhz/Voodoo 3 system. It was the first game I ever played online co-op on. I still love it - I just replayed it a couple of years ago. It's still a beautiful game.

It is just as likely that they are realizing the same thing Ubi did: Making a small amount of money at the cost of a bad reputation with your most vocal customer base doesn't actually save money after all.

I do so love their phrasing: "We tried to do something nice for our customers, but they just didn't get it."

Oh, Blizzard has always known they'd lose subscriptions eventually, and they planned around it. They aren't 'crashing', they're on the downhill end of the curve that they've been working around for years.
