thing is, if battlefield games are generally unstable at best on release what kind of state are they going to be in in prerelease?

I am both surprised and not that after all the vitriol and media coverage on this that this was the best they could come up with.

21. early adoption? Dec 11, 2013, 16:41 Jow
 
My feelings for Battlefield aside, why do people early adopt when they know this is going to happen? This has perplexed me for years and I still do not understand. People have a right to be upset that the product they purchased doesn't work as advertised, but how many times does this need to happen before people hold themselves accountable for purchasing decisions as much as they hold these companies accountable for delivering shoddy product?

It seems arrogant to assume my own taste is somehow superior and that publishers should disproportionately consider my opinions. Market forces won't create the perfect game for anyone, never mind everyone, but it will tend to treat people fairly. People have voted with their wallets and they've voted for CoD.

Yeah, I'm not posting this assumnig my taste is superior, but as I mentioned before I've been gaming forever. I went through Doom and all the other FPSs to follow as well as ton of other shit and my tastes are different now. Unfortunately this is what makes the dough and I need to either find my entertainment elsewhere or indulge more in my other hobbies.

Just because you don't like Call of Duty doesn't mean those who do are wrong.

The anger from non-COD people like myself comes because the outrageous financial success of these titles means more of this drivel gets shoveled out (because it's what people want, right?) and we get less of what we actually want to play as a result.

"groundbreaking"... "unprecedented thrill ride"... "biggest game launch of all time"... Right. I'm judging this one without having played it, based solely on the quality of the other CoD titles, but as a looooooong-time gamer reading the quotes above in this press release made me die a little inside.

reviews on metacritic are... interesting. critics are mostly raving, user reviews across all platforms are predominantly scathing, most with the same "graphics suck, there is nothing new here" tone. I'm just a little baffled at the hordes of people who bought this genuinely expecting something different. *shrug*

Have they actually notified all the participants yet? friend of mine wants in this so badly that he asked me to sign up for a spot in the beta in case his own doesn't get in.

Retribution was actually a true expansion, or what we used to know as an expansion anyway.

word is 10 bucks for the Tau Commander alone... I realize the amount of work that goes into that justifies the price on some level, but I still have difficulty spending it considering I've spent little more for entire games in the franchise.

Financially I don't think there's any dispute. Gameplay-wise, I think there's a legitimate argument of the "cookie-cutter banality" variety. That they had the panache to create a cash cow they are now milking the shit out of does not automatically make it world-class.

Another vote for tweaking hardcore mode. With the complete lack of spotting, uselessness of in-game recon and the recon balls, and the weirdness of the sights I just won't play that mode. Make spotting useful again and tweak the sighting a bit and you can color me interested.

I'd love to see them keep the tactical focus and continue to skip over basebuilding, but the whole CoH-style VP gameplay with retreat mechanic definitely needs to evolve in order to get away from the whack-a-mole stuff.

News Comments > Carmageddon: Reincarnation Announced
17. Re: Carmageddon: Reincarnation Announced Jun 1, 2011, 11:55 Jow
 
There's probably some room in between but it's really a price issue I think; you're charging full price and I'm not sure Carmageddon's gameplay warrants it, you're charging $10 and the game is shallow or you're charging between in which case you're written off as a budget title.

At a time when companies like Activision are pumping out derivative crap and getting people to pay 60 bucks for it, I don't think the pricing structure for Carmageddon is going to be an issue.
