News Comments > Will Wright on Gaming's Future
1. Re: Will Wright on Gaming's Future Apr 17, 2011, 15:13 D4rkKnight
 
Forgive me if this picture of games future does not interest me. This is the reason Simcity 5 was never made, it was too "focused". So instead, we need to dilute the formula and make it accessible to everyone.

This makes me certain that the outlook for a true successor to Simcity 4 is very bleak. I am not against games like Spore and The Sims, but the draw of a larger audience has killed his most intelligent and rewarding simulation.

finding a proper ISO, making sure it's virus-free

This doesn't happen often with games actually. Applications can be riddled with viruses I will give you that, but somehow game releases, even poor ones like torrents, rarely contain a virus. False positives from cracks/keygens are a dime a dozen however.

Sad, sad, sad. Crysis 2 went from a day one purchase to a day never purchase for me. And though I meant to, I never even downloaded the leak. Just didn't feel like it was even worth that.

Doesn't matter, the absence of your sale is clearly caused by piracy.

Crytek only makes perfect games, so obviously if it sells bad it is because of piracy.

I wouldn't expect Crysis 3 to hit PC at all.

I hope so too, we are long overdue for a sequel worthy of SH1 and Crusader. At least the screenshots look good

I wouldn't say its less complex, just better organized. They achieved that with Empire/Napolean and it carries over here.

It certainly hasn't gotten any shorter though, you can finish a game in 6 hours if you lose at the 6 hour mark

Maybe its just me but this game looks exactly the same as IL2-Sturmovik...they just added a layer of flair on top of an old graphics engine. Meh...I love flight sims and IL2 was the best of them but after like 5 expansions I can't get excited about another rehash.

Wait, which RPGs are Blizzard known for?

EA thinks Dragon Age 2 is an RPG, therein lies the problem. By their standards, Call of Duty is one of the deepest most complex RPG's ever released.

If it wasn't specifically in the TOS, or, Steam was the only way a person could buy games anymore, this would be news.

If you don't like the way Steam operates, don't buy games from Steam. Simple concept. Expensive lesson? Perhaps. I don't feel bad for them in the least though - play by the rules or accept the consequences if you get caught doing otherwise.

This isn't news. Plain and simple.

Unfortunately for quite a few games, steam IS the only way you can buy the game. Even if you buy it at a retail store, it only activates and works on steam.

Irony is such an interesting thing.

If there are bugs in an EA released game, gamers will say "Of course there's bugs, EA can't release a game without bugs. They don't quality test worth a damn!"

Yet when EA says their website software had a bug in it, all of a sudden to these same gamers, it's inconcievable that EA's programmers could have made a mistake, or that the positively thorough testing that EA puts their software through didn't catch it.

Yes, it must be EA lying to hide their nefarious plots and couldn't possibly be related to ineptitude or lack of Design or QA attention.

Gamers are losing control of the products they purchase, this was not about a bug, its about the company stance. EA and Bioware defended this position, to them this is entirely expected and normal. Arguing with them is not going to change that, hurting their reputation and damaging their sales will.

there was an error in the system that accidentally suspended a user's entire account. Immediately upon learning of the glitch, EA took steps to restore the user's macro account and apologized for the inconvenience.

Wasn't an accident you douchebags, nice attempt at damage control.

It's an action/adventure game, barely an rpg, not at all a crpg.

Eurogamer: Is Dragon Age II better on PC?

Mike Laidlaw: I wouldn't say so. We actually did extensive work to make sure the experiences were much closer aligned.

They did extensive work to make the PC version worse.

1. Battles are more dynamic, there are usually 2-3 waves per fight and this turns each battle into a slug fest of attrition.

Was that a plus? Given this progression, Dragon Age 3 is going to be a first person shooter.

Its pricey, and I don't care for the coop so their focus isn't my taste, but it did change the core game up quite a bit. Check out this link for the specifics:

After playing through the entire plot once and wanting to start again I felt the same way. Now i use Cycrow's cheat tool to reveal all sectors, then I use a mod to allow free jumpdriving to any of those sectors. That way I'm still playing the game mostly legit just without all that travel time.
