News Comments > DOOM 4 Screenshots? Cancellation Rumor Denied

Furthermore, sales dropped off the planet after less than 2 weeks. They know they screwed up. Apologists can defend Rage all they want, but we have a disaster here bigger than Invisible War.
According to VGChartz, Rage was sold about 2.5 mio unit across all three major plattforms, only retail, no digital sales.

Which isn't bad. Sure, no CoD-like ultra success, but not bad at all.

Are you intentionally misspelling "the" because you're referencing ten years ago and intentionally looking stupid in such ways was cool back then? You should probably stop, it no longer looks ironic or interesting.
I couldnt care less what you think is cool or interesting. I dont post to get your approval.

*Sigh*

I'd pay full price for a single player 20 hour mech campaign. Looks like I won't get it from Hawken.
No, you wont. F2P and "downloadable content" and "virtual goods" are teh new shit. Ten years ago, Hawken might have become funding for a full blown MMO, because that was "teh new shit" then.

If you want a pure single player mech game, wait for a crowdfunding project which will cover that. If your game is financed through "traditional" investors, you loose all control, you have to make the game the investors want. And investors want always teh new shit, because thats "good".

ME3 won't be on Steam
Not right now, but later they will, after ME3 is not attractive anymore to lure potential customers to Origin.

This is one of those games that I was originally excited about, but the more I learned about it the less interested I became. I'm at the point now where I feel like I probably won't bother with this.
Reminds of Dragon Age, which was TEH GAME for me until EA announced Securom DRM, backed down from it, introduced online DLC and EA accounts, released trailers with boring high school rock music and tons of pixel blood and nippels and ... i simply forgot this game until i stumbled upon it during a Steam sale.

Same happened to Diablo 3. One day i will probably play it, maybe i will even pay a low budget price, but it's just a game, not THE GAME anymore.

Its good to free oneself from the shackles of the "Must Have" marketing hype

Wow. Maybe some people are going to make Pc games again?
At the end of the current consle generation more companies will make more PC versions until the new console generation requires the usual marketing shitstorm, when suddenly it is no longer POSSIBLE to earn one single fucking cent with PC games and therefore you HAVE TO buy this shiny new console where all the cool games are.

Sometimes, i am so tired of this bullshit that i'm looking for a new hobby which doesn't involve multibillion dollar companies and their marketing lies.

Yep. More than once I've gotten a authentication codes out of the blue too. I just cycle through a new set of passwords when it happens and go on my way just to be extra paranoid about it.
I have a Steam username which is a quite popular surname in a few countries. I get notifications and attempted password resets all the time.

But I'm guessing that it's them hoping for no steamguard.
I do not use SteamGuard. I change passwords on a regular basis.

But hopefully this opens the door a bit wider.
Yup. "Crowdfunding" is not the easy way to get rich quick. And its not THE solution of everything which is wrong in our economy. But its a step in the right direction, making creative people a little bit more independent, democratizing the way products are financed/developed.

Derp. What did you release in January, again? Isn't that traditionally when you expect sales to slump? Ya know, because of the glut of spending on that holiday that just occurred?
They are NOT comparing sales from January to December. They compare sales from January 2011 to January 2010. As they always do with these comparisons. Always the same month of the last year, NOT the month before.

I think everyone reasonable can agree the traditional publishing model is now reaching the point of absurdity when a company can somehow manage to sell a million copies of a title and not make a profit.
Just look at EA. A revenue of billions of dollars a year, no profit at all for years.

While your extended family may fit into those categories, I imagine that the vast majority of modern gamers do not. Anyone with even a modicum of technical knowledge knows how to start up a torrent, download the files, then follow the included instructions and overwrite the necessary files with the cracked files. And the last part is only necessary if the download isn't pre-cracked, which a lot of torrents are.
Heck, even my slightly technophobic barber told me, he was able to order a modchip and download ROMs for his Nintendo DS after a some simple Google research. And if someone actually dont know, at least he knows someone who does.

That's pretty much how I feel about Warhammer these days in general. They just seem to keep making so many various genre entries with the license that are totally average and uninteresting.
So many games and mostly you play some boring Space Marine.

Erm ... no? My legally bought copy of TQ 1.0 was bug-ridden piece of shit, a performance hog and unstable. In fact, the moment i tried the warez-exe, the game was little bit better.

Some TQ devs have been complaining about piracy continuously since TQ's release, of which, I'm sure, this individual is one of them.
Yes, he is the one of the only one. To my knowledge, no Iron Lore dev has said anything regarding piracy being bad for TQ. As i recall this was ONLY Michael Fitch, THQ Creative Director at that time, who started this propaganda lie after the closure of Iron Lore to cover his employer. THQ killed Iron Lore. TQ sold well, the addon suffered mainly from the bad reputation TQ gathered for its rocky, bug-ridden start. In fact, an Ex-Iron Lore dev said a few months (?) ago, that TQ & addon are actually doing very well on digital plattforms like Steam or others and that they do not receive ANYTHING from these sales.
