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.

News Comments > DotA Developer to Valve

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.

News Comments > Dawn of War II Patch Plans
5. Re: Dawn of War II Patch Plans May 10, 2009, 16:05 Warskull
 
You can't blame Microsoft for Relic's failings. The bugs at the game's release were there because Relic either didn't bother testing their patches or didn't care. They shouldn't have been in release in the first place. Furthermore, Microsoft doesn't slow the process down a full 2 months. That is just Relic pulling everyone off the project and not putting forward proper effort to fix a critically broken game. THQ is a sinking ship and Relic's quality went down with them.

I would argue this whole thing just says don't buy their games in the future.

According to some post on the Relic News forums from a programmer, the patch is already in late certification.

Yeah, they said that with the pop-cap bug fix, but in reality they never submitted it and it took 2 months to get into the game. Plus they have a tendency to not test their stuff and introduce horrible bugs into their game.

Multiplayer is still broken, the patch actually made it worse and had to be partially rolled back.

Invalid key=pirated copy.

The game checks your CD-key when you install/update a legitimate version. You can't typo it and install it unless you typo to another valid key.

I get that Stardock thinks pirates don't buy games...but they don't actually have any evidence to support that belief. I am rather impressed that they are willing to put their money where their mouth is, though. OTOH, so do those companies that do use DRM (put their money where their mouth is, that is).

I think what Stardock believes is "DRM doesn't make pirates buy games." So why bother legitimate users with it, if it isn't working?

All the screw-ups in DoW II have Relic written all over them. Relic has a history of not testing their stuff and releasing it buggy. Every single patch is a game of "find the new bugs."

This game is an Epic Fail. Another reminder to me to never ever buy games for at least 6 months. I wish I never bought it. I'll probably never look it it again. Kids game anyway.

It's double epic fail. It was released with game breaking bugs and they take a month to apply a crappy band-aid that only half fixes the issue. Two months for a proper patch, and Relic clearly doesn't bother testing their stuff. So the patch will probably break something else (which will take another month or so to get fixed.) The whole time they lied to the community about the patch too.

Relic is a trash dev now.

Their activation/deactivation technology is certainly interesting. It could be used to bring demos back to games if it runs as smoothly as they say. Let you have a 24-48 hour activation to try out a game, basically a time constrained demo of the full game. The reselling your used games is a nice option too.

6. Re: Dragon Age DLC Plans Apr 6, 2009, 21:47 Warskull
 
That's just way too long, really. Even if I love the game, by that time I've moved on so thoroughly that the odds of going back to it for DLC is pretty low. It'd have to be Half-Life episode-esque, where the DLC was practically a sequel, for it to be appealing.

Really, it sounds like they will make the DLC a digital only expansion pack. People buy expansion packs for other games. I'm sure if it has plenty of content people will be interested in it.

but I doubt MoreLuckThanSkill is going to be happy with any kind of DRM

He also has a poor grasp on reality. Clearly labeled DRM and standardized EULAs could go a long way. Especially if the standardized EULA was written to be more fair to consumers (which current EULAs most certainly aren't.)

News Comments > Warren Spector on Game Prices
45. Re: He's still talking.... Mar 30, 2009, 15:41 Warskull
 
He's absolutely right, game pricing needs to adapt. Games are priced like they are still an extremely niche market. Publishers have a tendency to overcharge and under deliver. Not all games are worth $50-60, in fact few are. There are a number of games I can recall skipping because of their price. I would look at them, be interested, but not be willing to risk $60. At $30, I would have picked them up. Game prices take far too long to drop these days too.

Games being overpriced and rarely worth the full price is why the second hand market is so strong. The game industry needs to start making more lower budget, lower priced games. If they make a pile of crap, throwing another couple million at it isn't going to make it a good game.

In the long run, I think the companies that do not heed this advice will end up extinct. Steam has already proven you can make a killing if you price more aggressively.

News Comments > Game Developer Choice Awards
21. Re: Game Developer Choice Awards Mar 26, 2009, 15:47 Warskull
 
Wow, these awards are terrible. I guess a buggy, crash prone game that got worse with patches it what constitutes game of the year these days.

If you look at the nominees its pretty obvious these are BS. They just nominated Fallout 3, GTA IV, Little Big Planet, and a few others for every category.

Pro tip #2: Opinions vary; we're not all alike so don't act like this is the first time a bad decision has been made. It's both hilarious yet confusing to see you guys get your panties in a knot

This isn't a regular bad decision. These are mind bogglingly bad.
