Farcry 1 multiplayer is probably my favorite of all time. People said that it sucked because it was different from COD and people didn't want to learn it and have to suck again. That's the only possible reason because it was tight as hell.
The failure of FC1 MP was not its gameplay, but its utter lack of support. Crytek blamed it on Ubisoft, but they showed that they are not able or not willing to make a decent MP for their games.

I tried out the multiplayer and there was about 6 games that actually had people in them and none of them were full.
Crytek burned people good with the MP in Far Cry. Since then its always the same ... no one plays, no one cares. At least on the PC.

  • Has any console come back from the dead to become an "overwhelming success"? Where's the historical precedent for this?]
  • The PS3. Not only declared Dead on Arrival, but being clearly dead for two or three years after it's release. Nowadays, the PS3 sells very good and is responsible for making the entertainment division of Sony one of the few profitable divisions of this company. Overall, the PS3 is still a loss, considering it's very high dev and marketing costs.

    The really sad thing ... we're talking about virtual economies. You dont have to suffer "inflation" or such. You have everything at your disposal to counter these developements. Games are a PARADISE for modern business scientists, where you can explore and influence every notion and motion an economy makes.

    But looking at recent events, all i see is video game companies with no knowledge on how to manage virtual economies. Heck, even Blizzard, with all the money to afford a whole staff of economists ... they just stood there and let it all fall apart.

    Yep that would be my guess. I imagine a new Total Annihilation, which could be kind of cool, although to be fair I couldnt get in to the last one, what was it called Supreme Commander 2 right? Kind of sucked...
    SC2 wasn't that bad on its own. But compared to its predecessor ...

    You're the second person to make a comment like this, and honestly, people said the same thing a decade ago.
    But a decade ago there was no incentive to abandon Windows as a gaming plattform. Now there is. The circumstances have changed. MS does no longer support PC gaming. Crowdfunding and Android make projects like the Ouya possible. Others will follow.

    The times, they are a changing!

    Obsidian is synonymous with buggy code
    Was. Dungeon Siege 3, boring as it was, was very stable and had a high release quality. It was the first game using Obsidians new QA tool. The days of Bugsidian are over.

    Eh, it's been getting so much press lately because gamers (and the gaming press) just love the name. The actual gameplay looks rather lame, TBH.
    Of course its "lame". Its nothing more than a simple arcade shooter in an 80-ish action movie/tv setting. Think "Airwolf" and this is the game from the TV show. Mindless, stupid, tasteless, dumb. But fun, when your brain temporarily isn't capable of a more coherent thought process.

    I love how Angry Joe flip flopped big time on A:CM. Maybe he will learn to stop being free marketing for shit companies in the future.
    AngryJoe is part of the whole marketing campaign train since he started accepting copies from publishers and no longer buys them himself. They simply use him and he doesnt seem to understand that fact. I cant take his rants serious. In the case of Metro LL he goes on for about 15 min. and then concludes his rant with a simple "Yeah, and my review will be online in a few days, yaddayadda, embargo, cant tell more about the game, yaddayadda".

    There is no: "Koch Media, fuck you! No money for you assholes! Im done reviewing your games!"

    There is only a show-off, pretending to be upset. AngryJoe has become pathetic!

    Angry Joe's rant is spot on.
    AngryJoes represents the typical nerd rage. Red face, high blood pressure, angry words, but at the end of the day they just fork over the monies, because they still haven't learned to say NO, THANK YOU!

    What I'm not getting is why people in the States can simply just... own.. a gun. To us Europeans that simply sounds completely and utterly out of this world. In fact, it's a face-palm thing to most of us regarding the USA. That whole "I'm cleaning my gun every night and I'm god durned proud of it" is simply one hell of a hill-billy mentality.

    Apart from the Islamification due to blind tolerance here, the USA should look at Europe a bit more, imo. There is simply no freaking need to let everyone own a gun.


    Hehe Quinn, you stole the words from my mind. I am sure you are not talking for all of Europe but definitely for me. Considering the islamification of western societies, I damned well hope you speak for all... although I know all too well the holier-than-thou's with their heads in the sand. T_T
    Islamification? Rubbish! Utter nonsense & rubbish! There is no "Islamification", there is only fear and hate mongering from people, who are afraid of the unknown future.

    I've haven't gotten around to watching Firefly (it's in the Netflix queue), and frankly at this point there is no way it can live up to the hype so many people have given it. Which only increases my hesitation to watch it.
    Thats understandable. Therefore i say: Firefly is just a good SF show. With cattle. And a LOT of chinese swearing to outwit the US TV censors. And boobs. Original, unaltered Christina Hendricks boobs. Just watch Firefly for the two episodes with her guest starring. At her boobs. Come on, Give the show a chance

    It also features Jewel Staite and Summer Glau. Less boobs, equal or more charming. And i can keep on blabbering about Firefly for hours.

    No, really, forget the hype. Free your mind. Just watch it. Not perfect, only good.

    Well the show has a 6.9 rating on IMBD which is pretty fucking horrible. I will never forgive the studio execs who cancelled Firefly, just finished watching it for the first time a few days ago. (I have heard of it before but for some reason never got around to watching it)
    Firefly is GOD! Everything works together. Chars, actors, script, setting, effects.

    But there is one single reason, why it was doomed to fail in the ratings: Most people dont expect cattle and cowboys in a SF show or spaceships in a western show. Most people need clear and cliche boundaries. A show has to be such and such. And most SF fans are very conservative.

    But who does a class action suit help? It doesn't help consumers and it doesn't help publishers.
    Why and why? It helps consumers to defend themselves against blatant false advertising claims and it will teach the publishers to be more careful when making a marketing campaign. Everybody wins.

    It's not the company's fault he didn't wait for reviews, read the 1,000's of horrible post all over the internet stating all of these things that were out 30 seconds after the game was released, and the countless videos showing what the game "really" looked like.
    No, the company isnt to blame. Of course not ... false advertising is just a minor slipup between gentleman. No need to bother at all.

    I can definitely confirm a report on this that it's very much true. I have a close friend who used to work for Eidos Montreal but he quit due to bad management and corporate politics. Their Thief game was rebooted already a number of times due to quality issues (the game/prototype did suck), and I mentioned it in Blues News comments even a couple years ago. I wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be another situation like Duke Nukem Forever, which would be quite a shame for the Thief series really. Publisher SquareEnix has all the right to be unhappy and concerned.
    Is this the same team which made Deus Ex HR?

    How hard is it to not say ANYTHING negative for a fallen gamer?
    One does not speak bad about the dead out of respect for a human being. Him being a gamer or a (stupid) patriot or whatever doesnt make him better than anyone else loosing his life through war & violence.

    Runic gave away the TL 2 soundtrack for free, Blizzard didn't. I think it's pretty obvious that one company is about making players happy and the other is about making money. But you keep on supporting corporatism and greed Krovven.
    Blizz gave away for free too. The files are hidden in the game data, you only need to extract them, which might be already possible or will be possible soon for D3. If you have for example WoW, there is no need to buy the soundtrack. Just rip it from the data files and you get even MORE tracks than sold seperately.
