Ideally, we’d like to do so without being insulted and threatened ...

Then simply do your effin job. REPORT on the state of the gaming industry, REPORT on how people work there, REPORT on how the business is made, REPORT on how creative a dev can be when working on this kind or this kind of project. INFORM and EDUCATE your readers on the background of making a little indie game or making a huge chartbreaker. Go and ask questions. Even and especially uncomfortable ones. Ask devs, ask marketing people, ask simple gamers. REPORT, dammit. And not just some nice, easy coverage of the latest game with niffty screenshots and excerpts from the press kit.

But instead you just whine and whine and whine how people are fed up with the majority of the gaming press NOT DOING THEIR EFFIN JOB!

God, this article made me angry. I should go outside and walk the dog!

The point of the redux is that they changed the second game to have more of the horror/survival feel of metro2033 with a new "survival mode", instead of run and gun/easy time mode. The 'graphics' are just extra icing.
Ahh, good to know. Thnx!

Funny, i didnt noticed the first cut to the new redux version until i looked in the upper right corner, where it suddenly said "Redux". Yes, after a while i noticed some differences. When you know where to look.

I'll pass. Graphics from 2010 are apparently good enough for me

Yep. Not sure why gamers even ask this question any more, it's always the same. But whomever continue your hate for Steam, I also assume that is why Galaxy is coming, but then isn't that just Steam with a new name?
Galaxy has no DRM. At all. Not even optional for publishers to screw around with. No regional restrictions, no bullshit. Just a download client with benefits. Steam, on the other hand, is DRM with benefits

I don't know why developers/publishers don't offer a public beta test to everyone who preorders a game, whether on Kickstarter or at retail... The final release can only be better for it.
Because a project seldom profits from a public beta. Most, well, nearly ALL gamers dont know shit on how to report bugs or to make proper, valid gameplay & balancing suggestions. Most of them just want to play the game as early as possible and nothing more.

F2P and really high quality usually don't go hand in hand, especially when EA is involved...
Is EA involved with current Crytek? I think not. They only had a simple publishing deal for the Crysis games.

Do people really follow Tomb Raider enough to warrant making it "timed" exclusive for the xbone?
Of course not, but Microsoft is getting desperate. And making GTA a timed exclusive was a) too expensive, b) GTA 6 would be too late to save the Xbone.

Well it better be a damn sight better than VI all around or I'll finally be passing on this series.
VI wasn't a bad game. Just a bland, unnecessary sequel.

For the people who loved the Gothic games (1 and 2 at least), I wouldn't write this game off so easily -- especially after watching the "back to the roots" trailer. Definite buy for me.
You still believe in Santa Claus? This game is reported to be worse than Risen 2, which was a very great dissapointment for many Gothic fans, who hoped that the dev improved on the first game of the series. Instead they caved in to publisher demands, made the game "more accessible". Attemps in humor backfired, dialouge and story were bland and dull, combat was simply CRAP!!!! And now they made more of this. No improvements at all. NONE! Just a bunch of recycled assets. No, really, this is simply an addon to Risen 2, sold and marketed as a full price game.

The interesting thing to me is that there are STILL that many people playing this game. Isn't it old hat by now?
People still play Chess. A very, VERY old game.

You repeat the same thing in every topic. Is your life really so pathetic that you have nothing better to do than trash this game? We get it, you don't like the game. If you want to criticise something in particular that's fair enough but you're going out of your way to repeat the same flamebait.

That was a very, VERY lame rebuttal. Come on, you can flame and trash-post better, i know it!!!!

I give them 6 months.
Good guess. They have to close more studios, they have to cancel one or two current projects. Because they do not make revenue at all. There is no new game this year. Cryteks only F2P title is a flop. And they work on the next flop (another MOBA *yawn*). And they just switched the entire team for their coop title, delaying the release for at least half a year. The engine business failed. At the moment they will NOT make money for at least another year. Hell, they might even have to sell the Crysis IP only to cover the next months.

Crytek will not survive the next year.

News Comments > Crytek Gets Funds for "Transitional Phase"

Crysis was a poorly optimised tech engine with utterly mediocre gameplay. I've tried to complete it on numerous occasions but I just find it tedious. Far Cry was the better game.
I find both lacking ... well, but Crytek was never known for good gameplay design. They do tech. Nothing else. Becoming a game developer was not the brightest idea, because they had no game design talent. And they hired only mediocre game design talent. There is no vision in Cryteks games, no clear gameplay design. They just make the game up, as they go along and scrap everything they build for the next game, even in the same game. Do you really remember Far Cry? Playing on this beautiful island, battling mercenaries and suddenly these stupid monsters in corridors and this absurd, grotesque and just lazy designed end fight?

There is no game design talent at Crytek. Never was, never will be.

As generous as their offer to make games with CryEngine is I just don't see there being enough talent to make that happen, not when everywhere you turn people are putting out tutorial vids on making games with Unreal Engine or Unity.
And there is a reason for that. Lacking support from Crytek for people interested in using the CryEngine. Arrogant behavior against people seeking help or asking for certain features. Lacking documentation. Not very intuitive tools require a hefty amount of work to produce something you can achieve with the UDK or Unity very, very fast. The CryEngine licensing business has failed. It's dead.

And what a surprise, the game does not start. The serial provided with this free "purchase" is faulty or not registered within their stupid DRM database. It does not work for EVERYONE

We know which engine it uses and this doesn't change anything. CIG has a licence to use the engine regardless of what happens to Crytek.
To be precise, RSI bought the right to make a fork of the CryEngine, they bought the code. There is no need for Crytek anymore.

So what caused this train wreck to happen in the first place? Just being an 'average' developer that overextended their resources in to shit like Warface?
Yes, something like that.
