News Comments > NPD All-Time Top 10
14. Re: NPD All-Time Top 10 Jan 20, 2010, 01:52 Warskull
 
I think in the end all the information is somewhat vague. One possibility is the NPD sales lists don't track games sold in Japan. It still seems awfully incompetent for a company whose job is market research. They are probably trying to sell something and fudging the numbers.

News Comments > NPD All-Time Top 10
12. Re: NPD All-Time Top 10 Jan 19, 2010, 21:56 Warskull
 
I agree that this list is botched. They obviously used some strange metrics that need to be mentioned for this list to make any sense.

Another big one that's missing is nintendogs, that game sold an insane amount of copies. Something like 22 million+. Also, where is new super mario bros wii? That sold more copies than the PS3 version of Modern Warefare 2.

This list just seems out of whack. Yes, a number of these listed are big sellers, but it feels like there are giant gaps.

News Comments > Free Game with AvP Prepurchase
3. Re: Free Game with AvP Prepurchase Jan 19, 2010, 21:40 Warskull
 
Why universe at war? Why not offer a free copy of that AvP 2000 that they just put on steam? It is a lot more relevant.

I want this game to be good, but the last good game rebellion released was the original AvP. It makes me a little worried. On top of that, it was AvP 2 that was the one that really defined the franchise.

News Comments > New MechWarrior: Living Legends
2. Re: New MechWarrior: Living Legends Jan 18, 2010, 16:35 Warskull
 
I played with it and it really isn't a very good game. The modeling of the mechs and implementation of the various things in the cry-engine is excellent. However, the game really has no objectives its just a glorified giant team death match, which can get extremely boring when one team decides they just want to camp in their spawn.

The "combined arms" balance is pretty shit too. Aerofighters are probably the best and you have less than 20% of the server in mechs. That feels like a huge screw up in a mechwarrior inspired game.

Its a decent start though, I could see them eventually turning it into a good game. It is just far from it at the moment. Biggest change would be to put some real objectives out in the battlefield, give people reasons to go to places.

How many MMO's have been shut down 16 months after launch?

Hellgate: London, coincidentally the poster child of flagship studios, Bill Roper, now works at Cryptic the company behind this game.

You don't do this kind of thing if you expect your MMO to sell well and last. For this lifetime subscription to make sense you would have to play and enjoy the game for over two years. Champions Online on the other hand was entertaining for about 2 weeks.

This is basically exploiting dumb fan boys. However, it is really hard to feel sorry for anyone who buys into this, they deserve what they get.

After the huge mess that was Demigod, I don't think I'll be giving Stardock any more business. They knowingly released a non-functional game.

The game itself is excellent, there are just a number of things that really show that the PC is more of an afterthought. For example options to disable mouse smoothing, enable/disable vsync, and enable/disable VOIP are not in the menus, but available in the .ini files.

Gamespy sucks, but it sounds like from the interview they probably won't use gamespy again. The online issues are by far this game's worst problem.

They don't treat the PC platform as poorly as many other developers, but they still leave some things to be desired.

Brad seems like quite the asshole

That's because he is an asshole. If you remember back to that horrible failure of a game called Demigod, they just eventually gave up and started banning and forcibly refunding people for complaining that the game was not working. Then they played the victim. May I point out that even EA hasn't been bad enough to do something like this.

Used car salesmen don't expect people to love them when they sell lemons.

Stardock is all talk. Their actions do not show a company who is pro-consumer.

When a dev says "It's not a WoW Clone" that means its a WoW clone.

Either that or they paid out a lot of premium severance packages.

I wouldn't waste your money on it anyway. They released it extremely half finished and haven't got the shop working yet. The "collectors pack" does nothing for you right now. The whole limited time for unlocking all champions is because their unlocking system isn't working yet.

News Comments > More Fallout Legal Fallout
11. Re: More Fallout Legal Fallout Oct 17, 2009, 16:51 Warskull
 
BTW, the only reason fallout IP is a huge business is because Beth made it that way. Interplay canceled several fallout games in the works, and was trying to screw the franchise up turning it into a BoS kinda thing, rather than a real fallout game.

No, the reason the Fallout business is so big is because the original fallout games were amazing and built a huge name for the IP. Many people would not have bothered with fallout 3 if it was the same game under a different name. Personally, I was very disappointed with how incredibly buggy Fallout 3 was.

Even Demigod, which is a DotA clone has a pretty bad community.

Demigod has a shit community because they released what can only be described as a barely functional game, then failed to fix it. The community understandably got angry. Stardock shilled all of them.

Not only do they charge you per adventure, they charge you too keep leveling up. Every 4 levels they make you pay to continue leveling. This fee is for each character.

It is not worth playing, they failed in every way possible with Demigod. Wait for its competition, League of Legends will be free and Heroes of Newearth probably won't be more than $30. Demigod is $40 and can barely be described as functional or complete.

Yep. I believe my comment a few weeks ago, with the news of Bio/Mythic being merged, was something along the lines of "nothing good can come out of this" and I stand by that.

I completely agree, no good can come of this. I can only hope they keep Mythic people on a short, short leash.

News Comments > Demigod Patched
12. Re: Demigod Patched Jun 25, 2009, 03:01 Warskull
 
This game's community is dying out sadly, the launch period and negative buzz really ravaged it. I used to get games fairly quickly but now I can sit around waiting for 5-10 minutes sometimes and the bitching on the forums about the connection issues never ends. They really needed an open beta for this game, kind of boggles the mind why they didn't bother.

Of course the game is dying. It is a bad game. Their release was a total failure with the multiplayer component not working. It took them months to even begin to get the game working. On top of it all, they have never really hammered out their connection problems. Time to move on and wait for someone else to come along and make a good game like this.

News Comments > Demigod Coupons Ship & Patch Plans
2. Re: Demigod Coupons Ship & Patch Plans May 24, 2009, 12:56 Warskull
 
The game is a waste of money at this point. It was released in a horribly buggy state and its been over a month and it is still in a state that can hardly be called release ready. Even at half off this game is a still a buggy rip-off.

The coupon system is also kind of insulting to players who stood by them too. Their thanks to players who stood by them is a thinly veiled marketing attempt. Being asked to shill a still defective product on friends isn't exactly my idea of an apology.

You were only burned by horse armor if you were dumb enough to pay $5 for it. Stop paying for crappy, overpriced DLC and you will stop seeing it.
