Because even though it didn't sell incredibly well at release, it eventually wound up selling over a million units, which is incredibly good for a reasonably low budget aRPG, or any game for that matter.
Even the fourth WH40K addon "Soulstorm" sold very well, especially in GB. But sadly, IL wasn't able to secure enough funds for their next project, so they closed shop. Anyone knows, how THQ ties in? Bad luck, the usual stupid and shortsighted corporate decisions?

Have patience. Openly critizising the major devs and publishers in the industry is new to most of them "gaming journalists"

I'd like a Transformers MMO based on "what". At least better than silly, cheap and crudly drawn childhood cartoons or silly, expensive and terrible movies ...

How the fuck do you know???
How do YOU know?

That's just stupid ... Anyone who defends piracy is a thief.
You havent understood anything. Its not about definding anything. Its about acknowledging hte fact, that piracy doesnt go away and that no one knows for sure, what impact it has, if it has any impact at all.

I like how you guys say 'learn to live with the pirates' and then point to Blizzard as a guide to being successful on PC. Did you notice that both WoW and SC2 (their latest games) are practically impossible to pirate and have incredibly intrusive DRM that works pretty much the same as Ubisoft's in-your-face DRM?
You might want to inform yourself about WoW freeshards. And SC2 bnet-free multiplayer is only a matter of time, given the popularity of the game.

Notice how you can't let a friends borrow that game you bought on Steam?
You need only the cfg-files from your friend and patches to use these files like the "Steam Undead Patch". No prob, your friend can play your game too. And with non-Valve games, you need only a traditional nocd-crack to free the game exe from any DRM, be it Securom or Steam.

Welcome to the future of gaming. The ignorant, apologetic attitude you and people like you have towards piracy has helped bring this on us, and it won't be going away. Ever. Grats.
"Pirating" games/movies/audio is natural, because copying information is the fundamental part of digital information. Locking it away and pretending that information is the same like a physical good shows only a deep misunderstandung of the nature of digital information. You know why we have this DRM crap? Not because of people copying information withput consent of the copyright holders, but because the copyright holders (and their investors) are simply paranoid.

Copying software is part of the software industry since the days of its tiny, humble beginnings. It hasnt stopped it from becoming one of the major industries in the modern world with companies like Microsoft becoming commercial GIANTS. Live with "piracy". It doesnt go away. And it does not have to concern you. But its a very good scapegoat if your enterprise fails or the volume of sales is below your own or your investors expectations.

Or just make money baking bread or manufacturing refrigerators. And dont forget to look for new excuses.

Doesn't Modern Warfare have a key or something that probably makes it impossible for people without registered copies to play online?
The more popular a game is, the more un-official servers it has. There are, for example, dozens and dozens of WoW freeshards, there are hundreds of non-Steam private servers for Counterstrike, TF2 and so on and so on. MP does not protect shit. In fact, the only protection you have is to make your game so bad, that no one wants it to play even for free.

If you want to make money with PC games, accept piracy. You cannot have the one without the other. And surprisingly enough, you CAN make a lot of money with PC games. Ask Blizzard, ask Valve. Every single one of their games is being pirated back and forth and they make millions, because people see worth in these games and therefore pay for them. Make your games worth enough in the eyes of the customer and he will pay. The customer matters. Nothing else.

There was a time, long, long ago, when people played multiplayer games for their gameplay alone.
Also, there were a lot FEWER multiplayer games around, so that devs and publishers didnt have to ressort to such cheap tricks to ensure, that at least someone will play their game (better some achievement whores than no one). The market is heavily saturated. There are too many games out there and sadly enough less variety than before.

Because your tastes are NOT the center of the universe and AA is kind of a standard for PC games?

Nice idea but no. Dropping AA is the NEW PC GAMING. Not the old one, with all its complicated features, confusing people and demoralising them when turned on. No, this is the new PC gaming. Everything isa perfect and it has to be, because Blizzard has done it, therefore ...

If RPGs are becoming more action-oriented ...
Yeah, if ... but thankfully, "they" are not

Concerning the article, i agree. If you want to combine RPGs and shooter gameplay, you have to make the shooter part much, MUCH better than seen in FO3 and ME. I hated ME, because initially i wanted to play it like a shooter (because it feels like a shooter) and boy, i sucked hard. Never made it past the tutorial level

So, please, dear devs ... if you want to make an action RPG, make sure the action part works!

I do NOT think that piracy is the answer, but until game companies relinquish their Darth Vader like death grip on the industry I will continue to pirate their games
You could simply ignore them. Which is way better than i had expected, because now i am relaxed, calm, content. I'm not angry at the majors anymore. I ignore them, i ignore their games, i ignore their offerings. I'm no longer their customer. I dont care for their games anymore.

I feel great!

I really don't get their logic,
Thats why you are only a simple gamer and these guys are rich and wealthy

charging for content I would have gotten for free years ago or turning multiplayer into pay service isn't going to make me want to buy your other games.
Nobody speaks of you. Nobody cares what you want. We are talking about customers, who will sell their grandmothers soul to be able to play a fuckin CoD game. These people will gladly fork over shitloads of money.

Watch for a pretty steep drop off where gamers would just as likely stop playing than pay for service plan for all their games.
Even though millions play World of Warcraft there are still many many times that will not and refuse to. You are basically going to destroy what is great about online gaming and keep all the negatives if you go this route.
These guys do not care about some lame "community". They just see a business opportunity and they use it. And you know what's the really sad part about that ... there millions out there, who give a shit about what you or me think about this issues. They just want to play Call of Duty (or some other extremely popular game) and they do not care how much they are paying. Call it the Stockholme Syndrom of Gaming! Call it simply addiction!

And yes, Activision and the other majors are just the dealers, who will raise the price for the next fix month for month because they know, that their customers will do ANYTHING to get the next fix!

And what can you do? Simple ... do not buy their games and wait. This bubble WILL burst!

Right, but it also sounds to me as if BioWare is forcing PC gamers to go console since he doesn't specifically say "triple-A console and PC titles." I think it's pretty egregious not to include PC in a statement like that.
Maybe, maybe not. Only thing i know, that i dont care anymore what gaming companies want. If they make games i like, ok. If not, i have other hobbies to spend time with

No. Companies still want to make business with people who dont like MMOs or just not play MMOs all the time.

And the day when all books and games and music were no longer allowed to be sold by the consumer as "used", was also the day all content industries learned the hard way, that consumers purchasing power does not grow on trees.

I am not getting my hopes up for this the same way I am not getting my hopes up for Witcher 2.
I have no problem with a dev simplifying gameplay or controls, so that you can use a controller. But i have a problem with devs and publishers, who want to sell an unmodified console game as a PC version.
