Do NOT need or want another compromised PC game due to multi-platform design.
He seems to be talking about a source port like people have done for Doom, not a full blown multiplatform remake.

Let's keep it as ""runs perfectly"", under Dosbox framerates using any resolution over 320x200 suck, and even then game stutters in some moments.
On a fifteen year old machine maybe, but not on a half decent PC.

Obligatory fact: Painkiller Black is amazing. All the others are terrible.
I don't know about this new one, but the odds are against them.
Yup. Painkiller Black Edition (Painkiller with first addon) is still one of my favourite shooters. I play it once a year just to be reminded of the suckiness of most modern SP action games. Every PK game after "Battle out of hell" was just terrible, horrible crap. To be avoided at all costs.

This being obviously a remake of the original PK game, now with UE3 instead of the old engine ... might be at least somewhat enjoyable.

Seriously, the only reason MP3 sold less was because it was released at the same time as diablo 3. I mean, it completely overshadowed the game. Talk about bad management.
1. Totally different target groups. Not even WoW suffered from the D3 release.

2. Díablo 3 is a PC exclusive. Especially the console sales of Max Payne 3 were very weak in the first few weeks.

3. Torchlight 2 Pre-order sales INCREASED during the release of D3.

No, MP3 failed commercially because it was produced for the CoD crowd which hasn't any interrest in this "old" IP at all. And the few players who still remember Max Payne didn't want a "modern" shooter, they want a classic max Payne game. With less brazilian summer, more New Yorker winter, less "cinematics", more gameplay.

I just don't see how it's possible that this uplay garbage is NOT hurting sales.
According to Pachter Ubisofts PC sales plummeted since introduction of UbiPlay. Sadly we dont have numbers to support this rumor.

BTW, this same thing shows up with Baen books. They put free ebook versions of #1 in most of their sci fi series, and sometimes rotate other books for free, and everytime they do, they increase sales of the PHYSICAL books. Not just of the others in the series, but of that #1 that they are giving away free as well.
Cory Doctorow puts his books on his homepage for free. His printed books have been seen several reprints. Other writers experience the same. A massive increase in revenue after releasing one, a few or all books on the net for free.

Monthy Phyton experienced masive increases in sales after starting the Official MP Youtube channel, where they released their material in a very good video and audio quality.

Publishers should try the "pay what you want" model or even release some games for free, but also offering a commercial version. I guess, they will be surprised ...

Do we want to hear Carmack speculate on this or that? Carmack also isn't in touch with the current state of gaming. He's a techie, not a designer or even a salesman and considering how much idtech5 sucked on the PC, i guess he isnt even in touch with the current state of tech anymore.

BTW, the interesting part is you might think everyone who wanted skyrim would have jumped on it at the 50% off sale, but there's STILL demand for it at full price.
Thats the thing Valve and others pointed out several times now.

Sales do NOT devalue a game.
Instead sales even increase the number of units sold for normal price AFTER the sale has ended.

Only problem with this is that a digital product doesn't degrade like a physical product does.
No, it obviously doesn't degrade physically. But digital content quickly looses worth after the first few months, because there is already the next big thing available. Then there are budget sales and Gold or GOTY versions and so on. The industry devalues their own products very, very quickly.

I cannot see any business using it.
Companies will not use W8. Ever.

Most of them are still using XP (or even W2K) and are slowly starting to upgrade to W7 because the support for XP ends in two years. W8 is NOT intended as a business OS. Its a quickshot aimed at the tablet market where MS hopes to secure a considerable share by forcing consumers to use Metro.

I guess W9 will have a fully optional UI. Maybe the first service pack for W8 will do that. To save W8 when MS still has the chance to turn things around.

We've been here before back in the 1999-2001, and it didn't end so well for Loki Games.
True. But Loki Games had not the user base Valve has now with Steam. The chances of success are much bigger now.

I guess the problem is that I do not see the inherent value in the concept of a "horror franchise".
You do not, others do. Different people, different taste, you know


Horror is not gameplay.
Yes, it isn't. Its a setting. A setting to which gameplay has to fit to make the setting work

You can't fine-tune it to work well for everyone. It is highly subjective.
That is why horror games are for people, who like that kind of game. I dont, but that's not the point. EA is destroying a brand because they desperately NEEEEEEEED revenue. DS3 is targeted for 5 mio. units to be sold. Which does not happen with a horror game, i understand that. For that to accomplish you need a mass appeal action game.

So, why isn't EA just making this kind of game?

Because they already tried that and failed. See Bulletstorm. Sold not even 2 mio. units. Is considered a commercial flop for EA. So they thought: "Hey, let's just use this Dead Space franchise. Perhaps that'll work."

It won't. And that is a good thing. To sell 5 mio. units of an established game brand, where you just changed target groups, you need MASSIVE marketing which will eat up a lot of revenue which will require even more units to be sold.

I like what EA is doing. It all speeds up their final demise.

Do you guys realize how rare it is these days to get a game with campaign coop?
And this justifies the slaughter of a once promising horror franchise?

Does EAs need for crappy F2P games justify the slaughter of the Ultima brand?

Have you played the beta? According to players who did, TL2 wasn't anything similiar to D3 besides clicking things dead and looting dead things.
