... but something tells me that it suffered from "Duke Nuke 'Em Forever Syndrom", with several "start over" phases.

Oh you have no idea. 3 full restarts and, I think, close to 120 million after it was all said and done.

24-year-old Total War fan immortalised in Rome 2 shortly before losing battle with cancer
That's really cool of the Creative Assembly guys to do that for him and his family.

Class acts, all the way.

I wanted to like Endless Space but I felt...meh about it after a few hours of play. There's no hook for me, or as other have said, no soul that draws you in and charms you.

In fact, I find it very hard to give a damn about any particular race in the entire game. In the end, they all play the same.

Does anyone remember that old adventure game Phantasmagoria?

Oh Hell yes! I had a major crush on Victoria Morsell for a long time.

I'm...looking forward to this. I really liked both games when I was a kid younger, primarily because they were hard in an intelligent way.

Shy Gypsy Slyly Shyly Tryst By My Crypt.

I remember that solution to this day.

Wait...aren't these the same people who did the "spiritual successor" to Bard's Tale as well?

You're very aggressive in your hate for that game.

You have strange notions as to the applications of "aggressive" and "hate".

DX:HR was a good game but it was far from "awesome". It's predecessor was awesome.

Deus Ex Invisible War sucked shit through a tube.

There was no Deus Ex Invisible War. I have heard blasphemy but there is no proof.

Come on, they made DE:HR and it was awesome. Give them a little faith.

Creston

You mean like the boss fights?

No. Faith is earned.

Yes, because three fights that take a total of 10 minutes (and can be completely negated by the Typhoon) completely do away with 50 odd hours of awesome?

Creston


Zactly. And those boss fights weren't done by them, and they've openly admitted they didn't like the way they turned out.



They were shitty design decisions and shouldn't have been shoe-horned in to the game.

You want to make excuses for half-ass attempts, that's fine. It's your money and your time. But it's not going to be the same for everyone.

I know it's super on-point and someone thinks it's clever as hell, but the commercials with whoeverhappenstobeinthesuitthesedays strutting to ZZ Top kind of turn me away from the game.

I mean, he's strutting.

You would have preferred KISS, maybe?

Has AC fixed the problem where I look like a retarded loon who recently looted the costume rental store and in no way look like the locals around me?

Because nothing says "professional assassin" like "sticking out like a sore, antediluvian thumb".

Did anyone actually care about the storyline and characters in Homeworld?

Yes, quite a bit. In fact, the fan base wasn't overly pleased when they changed voice actresses for S'jet between Homeworld 1 and 2.

News Comments > Bungie's Destiny Details Soon
11. Re: Bungie's Destiny Details Soon Feb 12, 2013, 19:33 Burrito of Peace
 
When Halo gains the status of Doom 1+2, Unreal Tournament, Thief 1+2, Deus Ex 1, Far Cry, or Crysis, it will then be worthy. It is not and it never will be. Each of those games, in one category or another, significantly progressed FPS games.

Sure Bungie has made other games:

Myth - A mediocre and forgettable RTS series
Oni - A forgettable TPARPG
Marathon - Forgotten by gaming history except by Mac zealots.

The only reason Bungie is known is for Halo and that is because it was a premier launch title on a console that was fighting out of its weight class. I give them credit for creating it and milking the franchise for all it's worth, because they are a business after all, but let's not pretend that volume equates to achievement.

After all, the Pinto sold in droves, too.
