All the joking aside, isnt anyone the least bit saddened that we are losing yet another big publisher which in turn will allow Activision and EA to grow even more, or even worse that talented and quality developers like Volition and Relic are going to get flushed to god knows where???
Times are changing. Market conditions are changing. Publishers arent the only source of games anymore. Last time i was sad when my favourite gaming company went down, was with Microprose.

Would i miss another new Homeworld or new W40K game? Sure, of course. But its not important. Not enough to worry about.

Sadly they've probably just killed AOE off fully with this massive screwup.
Yupp. Ensemble was killed, because MS wanted to please the investors which were unhappy with the perfomance of the entertainment division so MS closed everything which was not Zune or XBOX.

Knowing that AoE was a popular and profitable franchise (just look at the Steam charts where AoE3 is constantly in the at least Top 20), they thought they might please the investors when they turn this franchise into a hype F2P casual game, because casual gaming and F2P are, you know, "important".

In the end, nobody was happy. Not the investors, nore MS, nore the customers. Good job, everyone!

The reports I receive still affirm that Win8 is closer to WinME numbers than Vista and this seems to further confirm it.
Just look at the latest Steam Survey. Even Win XP has more than DOUBLE the share of Win8 32/64.

I dont think that Balmer really expects Win 8 to be successful. Win 8 & Metro are just a quick hack to please the investors. "LOOK! We've done something to gain a share of the tablet market. Look! We do care about your monies!!"

Hopefully not another console exclusive.
Like the last one? Jepp, that was very "exclusive"

Love to see great things from Remedy on the PC again.
I would like to see a PC game for PCs, not just a port with horrible controls and weird design descisions, which may be ok with a console crowd but annoys the heck out of PC players. Remedy and Steam forums are full of PC players complaining about the mouse/keyboard controls and the "unusual" camera positions.

I liked the AW setting, the atmo and the visuals, but wasnt very exited in terms of interface, gameplay or enemy variety. There was much, MUCH room for improvement.

Soo... has the Kickstarter bubble officially burst yet or what?

Don't get me wrong, I donated to Grim Dawn and Project Eternity, but Kickstarters seem to be headed downhill at a breakneck pace these days.
This "special" project has nothing to do with Kickstarter. Kickstarter is only one of several crowdfunding plattforms. And "Crowdfunding" is the term you might want to use. And no, there is nothing going downhill at a breakneck pace these days. Not even the world. Only the usual internet hyperbole

To keep them afloat for the next few months.
Do you KNOW that or are you just guessing like everyone else? This money could also be used to pay a management bonus, because they did so well in managing the transition to Chapter 11.

I replayed both Quake 2 and Unreal a couple of years back on a similar whim, and I have to say as far as the singleplayer is concerned Unreal has held up a lot better. It had its boring stretches but overall it was pretty fun and the visuals are still kind of nice.
Unreal IS the better SP game. Quake 2 always felt like some death match maps sown together to form a campaign. In a very good way, dont get me wrong, but inferior to Unreal.

Capcom made more money with RE6 than with any other game of this series.

Really?

Yes. Sadly enough for all RE fans (which i am glad i'm not), Capcoms descision to make RE6 more like CoD paid off. Big! There will be no more classic horror-survival RE. Not with that revenue RE6 has generated.

Capcom simply catered to the fans of the RE movie series, which are nothing more than cheap and horrible action B movies, but make VERY good money.

RE6 was one of the few games I've regretted purchasing. Its just awful. Capcom needs to do a re-boot or just ditch the series.

No way. EA payed between 300 and 420 millions to make and market the game (some say there coming the difference cause they cant count total marketing...) AND 850 mil to buy shitty Bioware so all in all were talking abt 1.15 - 1.22 BILLION ! If they are not just laundering money they failed miserably
There is a reason BOTH Bioware founders stepped down. Someone has to be made responsible and at EA most managers are proficient in covering their personal asses, which leaves ... Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk.

Publishers really do everything they can to put themselves into a niche where a single flop means the end of their entire business. Does that sound like smart business to anyone?
The main reason those games are not made anymore is the disappearance of the "middle class" publisher. Ten years ago you could make a decent profit by selling games around 500k units. Then market concentration sets in, a lot of publishers like Midway or Atari weren't able to compete with increasing developement budgets on multiplattform games and vanished. Bigger ones like Sierra were bought. Others like Codemasters or Paradox found their niche. There is nothing much else left besides small and very, VERY BIG!

And this is where crowdfunding and digital distributions steps in, filling the void.

This game has been getting some solid reviews & word of mouth.
This game also recieved very mediocre reviews and some fair warnings. I guess FC3 is a kind of game like Bethesdas RPGs. Either you love them or you hate them.

I'm disappointed they did nothing to improve the game visually. I thought at least they would re-render the background, and hopefully add more frames to the pre-rendered animations.
For that they have to make assets new from scratch. The original assets are unfortunatly lost, so is the source code. All they could do is prgramming around the base game, adding and modifying stuff like the modder scene.

If you want Baldurs Gate with revamped graphics (like the screenshots form Project Eternity) you have to make a NEW game.
