What does this graph show? People buying a game or people playing an online game on Steam?

And why would this particular headset be destined to succeed when all others have failed so hard?
Because. And because of John Carmacks endorsement last summer. Because John Carmack is God. Everything he touches becomes gold. All praise John and his endorsements!

No, seriously. This device is nothing more than a nerd toy. Which is ok. Everyone needs something to play with. But pretending that this gagdet will somehow change anything ... i dont think so.

4. In multiplayer you are unlikely to run into foul mouth 12 year olds amped up on Mountain Dew.
Not when your mother forced you to integrate your stupid little brother into your weekly board gaming sessions with your friends

I love my brother, but as a child, he was unbearable.

Hey guys, has anybody raised the potential future issue yet of EA closing the server after a while?
What servers? Isn't this a soon-to-be 100% offline game?
Officially?
Who cares what EA thinks and wants?

" A better Kickstarter project for us would be to make a much more traditional RTS game that appeals to the nostalgia of classic RTS gaming experiences from the 1990&#8242;s. Fans have suggested spiritual successors to Dune 2, C&C, Red Alert ..."

Crowdfunding 101 for game developers: Try making a really unique game (art design or gameplay) or try to revive older, once very popular genres which vanished from the gaming charts 10-15 years ago. Those people who made these games popular back in the days are still out there. They havent changed their tastes, they are still here. And they have money because they are older and have jobs and some of them already have a midlife crisis. These people wont buy nifty cars or start an affair with some young chick from work. They will fund the shit out of your project if you can bring back their gaming youth!

News Comments > Maxis on SimCity: "In many ways, we built an MMO"

We've had so much (deserved) negativity that I'm wondering if there are actually people out there enjoying this game.
There are. There are always people who enjoy games which where broken, unfinished shit. Sometimes this is the reason why those people love a game. Because its so broken, they had to laugh all the time playing it. I remember a guy who laughed his way through Dungeon Lords. He said, it was hilarious how buggy, unfinished and broken this game was.

Ahhh, you mean genuinely enjoying it? Sure. Some. The question is, are there enough to make enough profit?

Given how little else they have going on in this game, I'm going to guess that a lot of their performance limitations have to do with the hundreds or thousands of cars and pedestrians that are clickable, have names, and run in circles eating up CPU cycles because they were born stupid.
Someone already pointed out that Tropico 1 had this too. With thousands of people living and working on an island. This game was released more than 12 years ago. We had the CityBuilder series from Impressions. With individual citizens.

THERE ARE NO RESSOURCE HUNGRY OPERATIONS IN SIM SHITTY!! Wise up already

All the talk of persistance for the individual sims? I don't give a fuck about the individual sims! Delete that whole concept to free up processor cycles for something more important.

There isnt much to gain. Saying it politely: "Move to next free target" does not take much ressources.

1000% percent transparent about deleting forum posts. I'm not sure what to say about that.
Well, for starters, it's not a lie, it's not marketing fudge speak. See? They can learn!!

I'm not a mega superfan of his latest stuff, but damn the Total Annihilation soundtrack was amazing. Amazing!
Soule has made four soundtracks, which really stand out:

1. Total Annihilation
2. TA Kingdoms (weird game, but oh so beautiful music)
3. Guild Wars 1 (Main + all Addons)
4. Morrowind

Everything else is just a variation of the Morrowind theme. And Skyrims soundtrack is soooooooooooooo boring, good god!

I think EA really learned its lesson with burning studios to the ground.
Thats right. But instead they are burning their own franchises. Choose your poison

Yeah people are already getting up to shenanigans with CheatEngine too. Looks like EA dropped the ball on more fronts than we imagined here.
And even without manipulating data ... just start a town, leave and ruin the towns of everyone else in this region. Griefing by design!

Breaking News:

Someone claimed to have modified a local savegame, which will delete other players towns in this region after sychronising with the EA server.

The topic is already closed, btw.

There is no conspiracy. They put shit in a box, got some 'honest' early previews out and then let the money start pouring in...

They just dont give a fuck, because in their eyes gamers are sheep who never learn, who keep buying less for more and EA is congratulating itself Bender style: ANOTHER JOB WELL DONE! all the way to the bank...
Yepp. As he said. It's simply a business model.

Which does not work very well anymore, considering EAs trouble following the flop of Warfighter, where they had fire staff and freeze the marketing budget for a few months. But they cannot think of something else. Everyone who had different opinions left EA long ago. There are only clueless business MBAs left, led by a clueless CEO who wonders why the EA stock stays in the cellar.

Read further. He tries to get the rights to Alice from EA

If he succeeds, why not? Nowadays not being released by EA is a great plus for a game.

When everyone is blasting EA for lying, let's not let Maxis off the hook here. They deserve just as much indignation for this mess of a game release and it pains me to see them potentially getting away from this without much damage to their reputation.
There is no difference between EA and Maxis. Its the same company. EA only kept the Maxis name for brand reasons.

"If we could get the rights from EA, would you play "Alice 3?"

Only if i have to be online all the time and Alice isn't really in the game, because Alice 3 is a simple spreadsheet app, which actually does not work as a spreadsheets app, because it only displays an empty spreadsheet page. But you have to be online to see this image. Which is downloaded to your hard drive. But we dont tell you. Because!

So, in these tiny cities... it really only simulates about 10% of the population and the rest aren't?
It does say "SIM City" on the box, doesn't it? You can't critizise a simulation for simulating stuff
