And gamers will still bitch about it..just watch.
I only see you two "special" people bitching in advance about other people eventually bitching. This is kind of sad, but when it makes you happy, go for it! Square

I still say that they should put the video camera away, take the community managers off the grandstanding and put them to work on the game itself. He isn't making an OS. He isn't building a console, it's a game, FFS! Stop acting like it's going to change the world, stop rebuilding the wheel and just get it done already...Just put a release out that we're not going to hear anything from you guys for 12 months, close the door, disappear and crunch until you've got something to talk about...
Or ... you could just ignore all SC news until they have their first commercial release?

They're gonna need it.
Unfortunately, they won't. They already have the money.
And they will need MORE! For a project of this size, the already accumulated 85 million are not that much ...

I too backed for the prospect of getting a new & modernized version of Wing Commander. Will i get it? Chances are high i will. Do i want SQ42 now? Heck, yes! Of course. But i learned patience a long time ago. Serves me good while waiting for the first chapter to arrive.

Thanks for your repeated OPINION. Got any facts to support it?
Intellectual Property Strategy and the Long Tail: Evidence from the Recorded Music Industry

Piracy and Movie Revenues: Evidence from Megaupload - A Tale of the Long Tail

Executive summary:
Removing DRM may help increase the sales of lesser known content from smaller companies. Removing DRM from content from major companies with huge marketing budgets has no measurable effect on the sales.

You mean to say that a crappy knock-off of Dark Souls sold fewer copies than the real deal? You're right, the DRM really doesn't matter! Rolleyes
It really does not
If you want a game to succeed, it does not matter if you use DRM or not. There are other factors you have to consider, like generating awarness, catering to your target group and so on.

DRM ist just make believe for the investors. A show, so that you can fulfill your obligations to them: "Look, we are effin serious about our products. We've done EVERYTHING to ensure commercial success, even if its utter bullshit!"

A month of no piracy for a new release is worth a fortune to publishers, that's why it's the hot new thing.
There is no proof at all, that the non-availability of a copy has a positive effect on sales. Nor the opposite. Denuvo is just a tool to convince shareholders that you will do anything to protect your business. It doesnt really matter if a DRM system works or not. Its all about sending a message to the shareholders.

Theres a lot of evidence, that piracy has only a very minor influence on sales, be it positve or negatve.

Btw. ...

Lords of the Fallen is registered, according to Steamspy, to roughly 200k accounts. With Denuvo.
The special Edition of Dark Souls 2, the same number. Without Denuvo. Dark Souls 2, Vanilla Edition. 1 mio. Without Denuvo.
Dark Souls 1, nearly 2 mio. Without Denuvo.

There are other factors, which determine the commercial success of a game. DRM or no DRM isnt one of them.

There's still people defending this monstrosity of a port?
No. They complain about people who complain about the game. Not because they think the game is perfect, but because they dont like complaining in general. Their mental state is very fragile, they cannot cope with people being loud and unruly.

All the bitching from the PC gaming community over this is going to kill the PC gaming community. Lucky we even got a port in this day and age.
Bad console ports do not make a living and thriving PC games market. Other ports, other games, other companies do just fine, making a shitload of money.

But if following an irrational, paranoid fear is what makes you happy, then just fear away and be happy.

Sadly the result may be, let's just not release on pc at all because it's too easy for people to get refunds.
No, it wont be.

Only the worst of the worst releases risk being a commercial failure because of too much refunds. And thats exactly the business practice we dont want to see anymore on the PC. Anyone else ... when your game is not a complete desaster, you dont have to fear refunds. In fact, people are now being able to take more risks. In the end, with refunds people will spend MORE than without. It is a proven policy in other industry sectors, it will be in the games industry.

This is amazing.. could refund system on Steam actually hurt WB enough?
What else? Before that, customers got angry but were not able to do much about it. The publisher already had their money. Now?

Customer:
"This game sucks!" *presses refund button* "Sweet! Got my money back!"

Publisher:
"Dammit!"

All though they will probably go the easy route and just go with the console market.
The console market is anything but "easy". Lot of devs and middle class publishers burned their hands, when consoles were all the hype 10 years ago. Either you are already a major publisher, shelling out millions and millions of marketing dollars to create demand in a saturated market (making more money in the process, because there isnt a lot of variety left) or you simply bust.

But still many companies and execs are blinded by Activision: "If only we could make 10-20% of what Bobby is doing with CoD or Skylanders, we will be rich!".

I'm glad Epic just didnt shut them down after EA was not very impressed with Bulletstorms sales performance, canceling all plans for Bulletstorm 2.

The premise behind the game doesn't grab. For an adventure ...
This was no ordinary "adventure". Games from Tale of Tales were always experiments in interactive narration and story telling. Artsy? Yes! Fascinating? Depends on your taste and what you want from a game.

Pretty sure Slick is an EA shill - just a really really terrible one.
No. He's just a sad troll. BluesNews may be around for a long time, but its too small to be relevant for majors like EA. If you want guerilla marketeers, just visit Kotaku. Or sites like 9gag.com, where posts for marketing purposes are indiscernible from genuine user posts.

You've got to remember that ms has all new upper management. The company is completely different now.
No, it isnt. Promoting Windows as a gaming plattform still is stupid when you pour millions and millions of dollar every year in the XBOX division to improve hardware & software and producing exclusive games. DirectX12 is only a marketing tool for Windows 10.

And to be honest, i like it that way. Windows is good plattform for a multitude of games from indies and majors, GfWL is vanishing into obscurity. I really do not miss anything MS could possibly offer besides providing a stable and solid OS.

Which is why we never saw another GOW on the PC after that. and why I hate that bastard.
Gears of War is Microsoft and only Microsoft decides, if and when a XBOX exclusive finds its way to another plattform. His Fullofhimselfness had nothing to decide on that matter.

So this is a PC exclusive title?
The ANNO series was always PC exclusive. This genre does not translate very well on consoles & controller. They have to make a different game, like Take2 did with Civ Revolutions.

What I find interesting is that a High school kid in the 80's not only understood wireless communication between various primitive devices and their control but could also code the whole thing on a relatively new system architecture and language.
What i find interesting is the estimated costs of replacing this old system. Between $1.5 and 2 million? Wtf? They just have to replace the control system, not the entire AC in every building!
