I agree with nin, this is the azzhats at rockstar not Steam. Steam is the service, not the holder of individual game User Rights.

I never got ME 3 either, after feeling ripped off by ME 2. ME 2 was a disappointment in the sense of not being able to buy a complete package with dlc on Steam. So I've got ME 2 with no dlc, unless succumb to ea's blackmail, to join their service. Flamethrower

People don't know uplay was required when buying on Steam, I didn't when I bought Far Cry 3. No, I don't read every detail about game requirements, nor do I read the 'Terms of Use' before I click 'yes' to install.

The problem is ubi/ea forcing people to use their service. It's clear the majority of people want to use Steam, the should at least be offered for sale. From what I've read the 'cracks' of these games don't use ubi/ea services, which proves ubi/ea services are just another drm layer. Middlefinger

Personally I didn't even join Steam for more than 5 years after it was started. Valve doesn't have anything close to the horrible records of ubi/ea. I'm sure the hell not joining ubi/ea services without years of thorough vetting.

rockstar always has treated PC gamers like shit, apparently they always will. I've only played one of their games GTA III, it annoyed me so much I decided to never play another. Middlefinger

The one game I might have been swayed to buy, would have been Red Dead, but we all know how well that worked out for PC gamers.

Too bad GTA doesn't let you roll your own toon in open world. I'd have a lot more respect for GTA, if at the very least they let you play as neutral, if not a good toon.

Forced villain? Bleh... Shakefist

I'm too biased to write a review! Mwahaha

If you follow the Steam reviews I only see 1 negative review in the month of October, yet 61 in previous months. On the positive side it seems opposite, the closer the game gets to release the better with 281 positive reviews.

What franchise? There's only been one game. Not much of a franchise.
2 games, one shelved to prevent shared IP profit bonuses, from the original contract pre-zenimax?

No, you aren't talking about them being unwilling to do business. They already did business! The game was made, with Bethesda doing most of the financing. Which means the business was done.

Your feeling doesn't need to be based on fact, you said it as if it was, but it's a conspiracy theory.

Yes, publishers clash with devs and want changes. This is true, but this has NOTHING to do with your post. But they don't pull games that they've already paid for simply because they do not like someone. That does not happen.

You aren't saying "the publisher had unreasonable demands" what you said was "Bethesda is willing to let an investment of probably $20 million dollars go because they did not like someone."

That doesn't happen. I'm going to repeat that again: publishers do not cancel good, playable, complete games that they've sunk 8 figures into simply because they do not like someone.
Then once again you are misinterpreting my words.
"unjustified" personal issues
does NOT only include the possibility of like or dislike as you obviously understand. However you seem focused on it to justify your perceived perception of.... Drummer (that's my drumroll).... a "conspiracy theory".

As jacobvandy mentioned, we've talked about the same thing here many times, at Blue's in the past. Big corporations like ea and zenimax are tying anything to buy up IPs even forcing developers into finical ruin to buy them up. There's a "conspiracy theory" for ya or do not appreciate the factual type.

Why would bethesda "choose to" not work with or sell a completed or nearly game, from a successful developer? See you can't answer, the question any more than pete hiney's bullshiny.

Maybe the devs who worked on it will leak it on BT. Would be pretty big torrent though.
Or would be great if they used the designs on another game and tell bethesda to go flock off into the sunset.

But this is conspiracy theory stuff. With absolutely zero evidence other than "I don't think he's telling the truth about it being low quality," you're saying "Bethesda is intentionally writing off a multi-million dollar investment because they don't like someone."

This is something that happens in movies, not in real life. Bethesda is not putting a game in a closet because they think someone at Human Head needs to wear more deodorant.

And, frankly, Prey was a pretty bad game. Not on ACM/DNF level, but it wasn't particularly good. The newest Batman was a big disappointment. Dead Man's Hand is a 62 on Metacritic. It isn't as if Human Head has some great history of fantastic releases, and Prey 2 seems to be the biggest risk they took.

It not being particularly fun and, at this point, not seemingly able to be very fun without an enormous amount of work seems far more likely than "Whelp, let's write-off the $20 million we spent to develop this game, Mark in Accounting called me a jerk so we'll show him!"
Wow, you are really taking this to extremes, aren't you. If you think, companies refusing to do business due to grudges is only the stuff of movies and fantasies don't let me get in your way. Not to mention the fact, I never said my "feeling" was based on fact. Does Blue's feelings, have to be fact now too? Or what about you, do your feelings have to be factual, too? Hahaha_no

I've heard many stories about how publisher representatives clash with developers, constantly wanting unreasonable revisions with-in unreasonable time frames or completely changing the foundations of the original design. These are reasonably factual probabilities, without me needing to be in every meeting and witnessing them in person.

It's also factual to most people Human Head games don't suck. They are the creative minds behind some pretty good games (maybe not your taste) Heretic, Hexen, Hexen II, Heretic II, Rune and Prey.

Hopefully Mark in accounting can do the numbers. Giggle

It's a directional smoke screen; there's more to it than this line of crap. It's just hard for me to believe that with that much development time and money they would all of a sudden just decide to cancel it. Something smells.....
You are so right, man. What it feels like to me is bethesda has "unjustified" personal issues with Human Head or someone at Human Head.

Wait. You think they wouldn't cancel a game because it was bad, but would because of "unjustified" personal issues with someone at Human Head?

Bethesda would not lose millions of dollars for personal issues, "unjustified" or not.
They would lose millions of dollars rather than putting out an Alien Colonial Marines or Duke Nukem Forever, as those are the kinds of things that really stick with your reputation.
But doesn't your position rely on it being a bad game on the level of ACM or DNF, which none of Human Heads games have been. Afai can tell, there's no reason to believe it's the case. There's no way I would take the word of someone who was hired to be a PR spin doctor, who's been feeding gamers false info about "game quality", since the Pre-Oblivion days.
