As a game developer you're limiting your market by creating a game so difficult only a portion of your players can complete it.
I thought that's what a difficulty level was for.

But difficulty levels make people feel bad. They want to win the game. If you put difficulty levels then they will want to win on the toughest...but if it's really tough then THATS NOT FAIR!!

26. Hopeful but Cautious Jan 18, 2011, 01:19 Dreagon
 
Bethesda has a bit of a track record of exaggerating the features of it's games...anybody remember some of the claims about it's last iteration of Radiant AI?...so I tend to be a little cautious about accepting what they say without a huge grain of salt.

Even worse, they have been showing a trend of dumbing down each chapter of the Elder Scrolls from the previous edition and trying to play that down. I'm hearing they have cut the number of skills again, this time down to eighteen. And thats just what they are willing to admit so far.

And don't even get me started on Oblivion's level scaling in loot and monsters. There was absolutely no reason to explore in Oblivion as you could get the same results just visiting the same dungeon over and over again. There was nothing to find. A huge step backwards from Morrowinds hand placed items.

So while I hope they learned from their mistakes, I'm sort of fearful of their tendency to "streamline" things.

...no sale. A game has to have a hell of pedigree for me to consider laying down fifty bucks without a demo. This one don't have it.

Wow, facebook is taking over everything.

It's good to hear that one developer refuses to dumb it's game down for consoles.

Another evil corporation. Just once it would be cool to see somebody do something original...or even radical like make the corporation the good guy and the government the bad guys.

Just once.

I'm willing to forgive and forget for the most part...but I what I read on Shacknews turns out to be true, where you can only carry two weapons at a time, then there is going to be some real hard feelings over Duke dying of consolitus.
Amazing what we're accusing of consolitis these days...

*Ahem*

"Gearge Broussards comment on two weapons in DNF on Shacknews forums-

Yeah, blame us for it if you want. It may change in the future and I don't know what will happen with it, but it was us. I stand by it too, as you cannot discount designing games for a modern world and part of that world is consoles where the bulk of the sales can be. And on those consoles you have a controller. We tried for a long time to support lots of guns but we simply could not find a nice way to map it to a controller, despite trying 4-5 designs. We gave it enough time and decided to stop swimming against the current and adopt what was basically the "standard".

It's not 1996 anymore."


Another rousing defense of consolitus.

I think what really pisses people off is the knowledge that even after all this BS...the game is going to sell like hotcakes.

What pisses me off even worse is that I will buy it.

14. I hope they played the Atomic Edition Aug 11, 2010, 11:32 Dreagon
 
Because if they want this to have any chance to succeed, they need to capture that "feel" the Atomic Edition had. It needs to be quick, responsive, unapologetically violent, politically incorrect, and gleefully offensive.

Dear Mr. Rein,

You have made nothing but derivitive shit since the first Unreal Tournement. Please leave indie developers alone to do their thing.

Thank you,

they could done something like this and just put a couple of mapmakers and a coder or two on remaking Duke3D in the Unreal Engine while the rest worked on DNF. They would have raked in the money and still be in business.

. . . of it's predecessors. This one will have only 15 skills, one type of armor, and two or three types of weapons. Every game gets dumber than the one before it.
