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.

Glad I passed on this, waiting till the $7.50 sale next summer. I try to support games, with modding support. ubi is extremely annoying since they won't support modding.

Sad to say, I'll probably cave on Far Cry 4 within a month of release. Slap

Great stories plus great NPC and Character development has always been the draw for me to bioware games. It's the real difference between bioware and TES games. TES games have great adventure, open world games but often times poorly written stories and quests, worst of all lifeless NPCs and companions.

Still the elephant in the room is, ea represents the worst in corporations and is hugely responsible for raft of bad decisions and behaviors that have a detrimental effect on gaming as a whole. ea would buy up every IP if possible, then shovel out broken yearly releases of the same game over and over, if they could.

ea is one of the if not the worst possible examples of a corporation, in every regard. You choose to support them with your money and words, then you are part of the problem, not those of us who try to stand against them.

It's was just about 10 years ago, they were treating employees like slave labor and many of us stood up against them. About 8 years ago, riccitiello hostility overthrew bioware. He quit ea knowing bioware would never sell direct to ea to start a speculative finical company. Infused them with cash, then sold the markers to ea behind bioware's back and got his old job back. It would take hours if not days to list all of the games shipped broken.

I remember this game from back in the day. Good stuff. Not worth registering an Origin account for it though, not in a million years.
Exactly! I'm not sure anything could get me to register with them, ever.

Meh. Infinite's DLC is still expensive as fuck. I'm hoping the Steam Xmas sale offer will be more attractive like $9.99 for the complete edition.
They are discounting from a ridiculously high price of $50 for the complete game.

RAGE, is bethesda finally coming back to reality? This is the first time in at least a year (maybe two years), I've seen one of their DLC going for the same 75% off as the game. Shakefist

Ooc, if most or all the game is F2P and not P2W what is the high price on packages? They custom skins and outfits for the ship and toons, normally bought in the Game Store (something like Secret World). I've never tried this mmog, read a little on the Release notes and the main site, but still don't understand.

Thanks

Fine, if what you say is true give me example of it happening. A 'relativity close' situation close to this scenario. Where someone wrote an article or made a Youtube accurately portraying exploitation of women in books or movies. Of course if your serious, you will be able to come of with an example of it happening to a male.

You're asking me to provide an example identical to this situation to reinforce your argument? Why would I ever do that? I didn't say 'every single youtube personality gets death threats', I said public figures get the brunt of crazy peoples bullshit and I do not think its fair to claim it somehow reaffirms anything she has said about other topics.

It's almost as if your just minimizing rape and death threats, as self justification of exploitation.

Exploitation of who? What are you even talking about? If you want to believe its possible that we can create a world where public facing figures can not have crazy people on the internet say crazy shit to them then you're deluded. The relatively anonymous and open nature of the internet precludes that from happening.
Only because you said it was so common, for people to deal with threats. I've never seen or heard of anything like these rape and death threats forcing an innocent girl to flee her home.

It almost sounds like exploitation of Sarkeesian, since she innocent of any crime to say she should expect rape and death threats, because she made a video about gaming history.

You can read the determination about the speaking engagement here.

I don't know about leaving her home but she wanted extra security precautions, got them but still refused despite investigations determining there was no credible threat at USU. Someone (I'm assuming her) called the FBI who seem to think its very similar to previous threats which to me suggests an individual fixated on her rather than some organized group of misogynistic gamers.

It really sucks that being a public figure means you have to deal with that kind of shit but as most would tell you, it comes with the territory. That's why many people choose organizations to communicate.
The speaking engagement just happened within the last 2 days, iirc. The FBI and her local police are the ones who advised her to leave her home months ago, due to creditable threats. Her leaving her home has nothing to do with this current engagement threat. Thanks anyway for the link.
