Day 1 for me too. Even if it is $50. So many good memories of the first one and Darkest Hour. All the other big name FPS suck ass IMO.

News Comments > The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles Next Month
5. Re: The Sims Medieval: Pirates and Nobles Next Month Jul 8, 2011, 13:24 shinchan0s
 
Nah. Sims Medieval is sort of a neutered version of Sims 3. They only need to sleep and eat; going to the privy or bathing is entirely optional. It's actually more like a "game" with predefined goals and an end. You know, the stuff you nerds have been complaining about the Sims franchise for years. It's actually pretty boring. I find it kind of funny that this game doesn't have farming mechanics like in the other games. It would have been so cool lording over a bunch of farming serfs at a giant manor, I think.

Nice. They developed the game to cater to the Korean market and it bites them in the butt. Thanks for ruining a top-notch franchise. GG.

They just want to "make a game" because it "seems fun" and "everyone else is doing it."

Which is exactly who we want making games, isn't it? Haven't we been decrying the corporatization of gaming? Haven't we been complaining about companies that put profit first, and good games second?

Granted, Elemental is a buggy, boring mess at present, but since it's a labor of love, I hope that Stardock will continue with the polish until they find the gem in the turd. That is, at least, what they've claimed they intend to do.

We also want professionalism too. Would you buy an amateurish game from a developer you weren't already familiar with? Not likely.

This would be different if they were just selling the game through their website for $30, but they're selling boxed games (with limited editions no less!) through retail channels for $50!

Stardock isn't a game developer they're a Windows app developer. If they were a Gearbox, Valve or Blizzard these mistakes wouldn't exist because as a company their survival would depend on producing top-quality products that work. As it stands they can work on these hobby projects because they have their Impulse platform business, and windows app software business to fall back on. In other words there’s no sense of urgency on their part to make sure they launch a solid product. They just want to "make a game" because it "seems fun" and "everyone else is doing it."

LOL. WTF. What's with the last sentence anyway - it sounds sarcastic.

Business is business. If it were a "hobby" they'd be releasing it as freeware instead of selling it through retail stores for fifty bucks. Stardock is expanding into the videogame market because that's where the money is and I'm convinced Mr. Wardell has dreams of primarily dealing in PC games.

Eh, the whole "origins" aspect of the original barely made much of a difference. Probably because they did such a half-assed job of it. The change is weird (I mean, does it really matter?) but I don't mind it at all. I hope they end up making a drastically superior sequel like Mass Effect 2.

Yeah, it'll suck. It's looking more like a "cash cow" instead of being a faithful adaptation of the 40K universe. The trailer didn't impress me much. The graphics looked very amateurish. I think I'll probably pass on this one.

Just from Starcraft? Whoop-dee-doo. The sequel's coming out in a month. I seriously doubt any "pro-league" will want them now though.

News Comments > Why Didn't You Buy GSB?
33. Re: Why Didn't You Buy GSB? Jun 5, 2010, 19:50 shinchan0s
 
It wasn't the right type of game. I'd rather have the battles be part of a larger, grander strategy game with different races and some semblance of a story. That's why I have the motivation to spend hours designing ships in GalCiv 2 and actually watch that game's ultra-cheesy fleet battles. If this were a game like Homeworld (or even that Star Trek RTS some years back) I'd probably be all over it too. The game wasn't enticing enough; it lacks a narrative + there is no interaction with the ships once the battle starts.
