So, basically, what we have here is a group of people who didn't bother to READ the actualities of the kick starter, ...
Where did it say that DRM free was only for backers? Please enlighten me, oh wise one!

How is is it fraud when they're going to deliver what they said would? They never made any promises about future DLC. You get the game and editor drm free is you like. That's the agreement.
63 post and still some people dont get it.

They promised a DRM free game. Not "Sry, DRM free only for backers because MS is an asshole!". DRM free. As in "DRM free for everyone because we mentioned no limitations". They started a Kickstarter campaign when those essential details were still in negation. Do you think this good business practice?

Why would Microsoft care if the game had DRM? They aren't publishing the title, most likely have already been paid their licensing fee, and have no stake in how many copies it sells. We need to kick the lawyers out of this industry.
Its MS. They like to shit on everything they touch.

News Comments > EA "Wins" Consumerist Poll Again

There's no such thing as bad publicity, which is exactly why this poll should disappear from the face of the earth.
Tell this John Riccitiello, who was forced to resign from the position of the CEO of EA because business is bad for EA. Bad publicity is NOT GOOD for a company which deals in higly emotional goods like video games.

Shocking.
Shocking how much hype there is about this mediocre game. As with Bioshock a few years ago, the one-eyed is king amongst the blind. Its a sad fact, that a mediocre (not bad, but not THAT good) shooter like Bioshock is indeed the pinnacle of the shooter genre in our days.

News Comments > Activision Has King's Quest Plans?

RollinThundr wrote on Apr 3, 2013, 13:18:
To be honest, nostalgia aside, Sierra's whole backlog is somewhat weak and niche to begin with. Gabriel Knight would flop in this day and age, pretty much any title in their backlog is a graphical adventure game often with puzzles, I just don't see those types of games as much as I loved them back then, selling to todays crowd.
It would sell. But not enough to make Bobby Kotick stand up from bed.

You can make good money with adventures and Kings Quest still has a good name with fans of this genre. But why should Actiblizz deal with small fish in a pond when they are hunting whole whale schools in the middle of the ocean during a heavy storm? Modern Warfare 3: 1 BILLION EFFIN DOLLARS IN ONLY TWO WEEKS! MORE THAN CAMERONS AVATAR!!

Kings Quest? *pffft* *snort*

I doubt they will, regardless of what they told anyone.

Yup... more than likely the case. Just like how they are being knobs and hanging on to the Space Quest licence and doing nothing with it... and sending out cease and desists.
Yepp, why would Activision do something with Kings Quest? This is small and therefore uninterestng business to them. When your bread & butter game makes 1 billion dollar in only two weeks (CoD MW3) and your other division aka Blizzard makes hundreds of millions each fiscal quarter ... why bother with such old crap only a few adventure fans from yesterday might be interested in?

Acleacius wrote on Mar 30, 2013, 11:33:
If you break sales records in the first week and history of the franchise, it's still not enough?
Its not enough, because productions costs were too high. Simple mathematics. SE thought they could sell more than 5-6 Mio. units. They gave the reboot a very high budget, according to rumors nearly 100 Mio. dollars.

The same as with Max Payne 3. Rockstar pumped up the dev and marketing costs, sales were dissapointing in relation to this budget. Now MP3 is considered a commercial failure.

Then I think EVE Online's or WoW's idea with monthly payments are more honest.
Dude, dont you know? NOBODY wants monthly payments anymore. Its all about F2P and microtrans-shit!!! Just look at SWTOR. Best MMO in teh world and the dumbasses at EA didnt make it F2P, so clearly nobody is playing it.

... sadly, the gaming business world is FULL of people, who finally start to believe in their own marketing propaganda which was supposed to trick the consumer, not the companies

Sounds like you read Ben K.'s junk journalism opinion piece on Penny Arcade about the game and let him form your opinion for you. Bravo.
Consider the possibility of people being able to make their own thoughts and building their own opinions. Just a thought ...

The TR reboot is a failure. Nice!

You're happy that the TR reboot is a commercial "failure"? Why?
I despise SE for their kind of "rape" guerilla marketing they tried on this re-boot. I despise this game for being an action sellout. I despise this game for being an exploitation game, where the main character is presented in cutscenes as a fearful vulnerable girl, and only seconds after this cutscene, the player is killing a whole battalion of enemies with this character. This is cheap and bad story telling. Its an exploitation of the franchise.

YEAH! You guys didn't buy enough Sleeping Dogs!!!!!!!!
No, you didnt buy enough Hitman and Tomb Raider. Both games are considered a commercial dissapointment. Which brings a smile on my face

The TR reboot is a failure. Nice!

I donít see this being true, I donít know how anyone could possibly spend 200 Million on developing and advertising a game.
Star Wars: The Old Republic (150-200 Mio + marketing)
GTA 4 had a budget around 100 Mio. Dollar (with marketing)
Halo 3 is said to had a marketing budget of 100 Mio. alone

Triple A nowadays is expensive. VERY EXPENSIVE! And lets not forget a more and more saturated market, which leads straight to higher and higher marketing costs.

So, could it be true? 200 mio. for Infinity? Well, its not unlikely any more ...

Oh, yeah, I remember playing Elite Force, that was pretty cool, even though you killed more aliens than in all of the Star Trek shows combined.
Borg invasion? Wolf 359? The Dominion War? Billions of people being killed. And lets not forget what the Voyager crew did to Species 8472.

Yes, Star Trek is all about Diplomacy and trying the peaceful way. But when shit goes down, it goes down HUGE!

Those people are the backbone of any crowdfunding gaming project. They change something. A LOT of something.

But, please, do rage on about this thing you just found while picking your nose.

In the 90's we had cutscenes, in the 00's we have QTEs. Id like to go back to the cutscenes please, they might be just as immersion breaking but at least I dont have the feeling of finger raping my keyboard or mouse.
True, true. At least, i actually can watch something. Seeing some value i paid for. During a QTE i have no clue what my character does, what exactly happens. The second coming of Jesus might be shown during a QTE. I concentrate only on those stupid symbols and hope its all over soon.
