I do agree that shooters generally have fewer opportunities to showcase good AI, though. I'd say that stealth and strategy games have far more potential.
Yes, because in shooters, people like to actually shoot things. And not chase them around the block for hours

Oh. 160 points is only $2? What was everyone bitching about then? $2 is as good as free.
No. It's two dollars. Comparing to the content you purchase (just three ingame items), this is not as good as free. It's still two dollars. But if somebody wants to buy this ... please, go ahead. It's his money, it's his descision, not mine

Yeah, being too content is a real reason to quit your job.
Yes, it is. For people, who want to achieve something else, than going to the same work for the next 20 years, because it's so comforting. Maybe, he wants to start his own company, taking the risk, finding out, if he can do it. Maybe, he wants to help people, do charity. We don't know. And frankly, it's none of our business

Age tends to do that when you're not buying it on mommy and daddy's credit card.
You know, why these kind of games are made and marketed primarily for juvenile audiences? Money is spend willingly and without a second thought. Because it's not their money or they are still singles without the need to care for a whole family or they have not made enough negative experiences to become cautious and sceptical.

I was that kind of juvenile, spending money on a lot of shit, not caring about tommorow or even the coming year. But growing older, i still love games, but its getting more and more difficult for the industry to open my wallet. You can only take a certain amount of shit, until you start saying NO MORE!

The fact that you have to gather "Elerium" and take "Snapshots" of corpses to gather evidence is a far cry from the meat and bones of the strategic & research elements of the original game.
What do you expect from a shooter? At best, XCOM will be a solid shooter with a handfull of non-standard features. If not ... well, nothing is lost as i expect nothing

Not only did Steam's DRM fail to prevent or slow the piracy of the game, ...
That it did since the release of HL2, nearly six years ago. Every Steam exclusive game was available as a copy mostly from day one. Steam NEVER held the promise, Lombardi and other Valve officials made concerning their "new age of DRM". And SEGA just discovered that now? I don't think so ...

Obviously sales of AvP weren't strong enough to overcome that exclusitivity.
And that is probably the only reason behind SEGAs descision.

It's been pirated to hell and back. Pirates can even play it online.
So what? Every game on Steam is being "pirated" to hell and back. What makes SEGAs experience with AvP on Steam so special?

Too bad Monolith wasn't talented enough make Blood 2, they bought the Blood story, engine and game from 3D Realms (iirc)and didn't really hit their stride until Shogo and NOLF.
Blood 1 was made by Monolith. They just used the BUILD engine from 3DRealms.

Wait, wasn't Atari bought by Ubisoft awhile back?
No. Infogrames bought the name rights and renamed itself to Atari.

Yeah, don't know this is really pushing it, the whole console design and the trailers are using strobe flashing to make quick cutaways before we get to see too much.
Showing too much of a game is too risky for the publishers nowadays. Well, since demos are too expensive and Prepaid-DLC is TEH NEW SAVIOUR, i guess, that not releasing any games at all, but still charging for them is the new business strategy of the years to come.

Can't wait!

Hmmm, a new video game crash, this time only hurting the majors, because they grew too big and got lazy and dumb? Sounds familiar. Might happen. Sooner as anyone could imagine ...

Is the opportunity cost of lost sales worth the prevention of piracy?
There is a question to be answered before that. In fact two questions. Does casual, non-profit software piracy hurt sales? If yes, how much? Enough to use some draconian DRM? There is no sign, since more than twenty years, that the answer to question one and two is yes. In fact, according to new studies (for example, a canadian study on music consumers), typical casual piracy seems to hurt sales not all, even boost them a little bit.

Lololololol!!! Hahahah, yeah Im sure they are rudimentary compared to being hit by a moving vehicle too. Or maybe we should compare the problem of Ubi's DRM with World Hunger. I mean we have all accepted that there is no way in hell that we can solve World Hunger, so I guess everyone in the world should accept that DRM is here to stay. SO SAY WE ALL!!!!
So true, so true.

But it's not about a constant online connection. This is NOT the point. It's about the ability of the vendor to shut down old games, to force players to buy new games. It's about the coming dark information age, when there is only content in circulation the industry wants to circulate. After the content has done its purpose, making enough profit, it's authentification servers are switched off and the content becomes useless, unreadable, vanishes into thin air.
