Really? Never heard of them.

I've never heard of this either and I'm not sure what it does. Dedicated servers? Store? There's a decent list of games there, Anno 1404 for example, but what you can do with it I don't know.

It basically gives you a browser of available games in games that no longer support that by themselves. Pretty useful if you want to play old games online where the internet function ran over gamespy, for example.
I wonder if it supports 'Hello Kitty Island Adventure'? Everyone knows they ended that MMO WAY before they should have

GameRanger is typically for games that run the servers on client machines, mmo is not really feasible. You can see the full list at http://www.gameranger.com/games/

As you said yourself, the 360 needs to be able to run titanfall

No, I'm saying the opposite. It doesn't need to be on the 360. The quality of the gameplay has suffered because of it.

They're releasing it there to access that large user base, and seeing how low the spec's are, why not make also support low-end, practically obsolete PC gaming systems? I just feel bad for the kids who buy Titanfall for the 360 in 2 weeks and experience a game that is significantly less than what all the hype, commercials, and reviews are showing. And then saving up for an Xbox One and buy the title all over again.

Actually they are releasing it there because it was originally planned to be a 360 game. It's kind of like when Zelda Twilight Princess was released on the gamecube and the wii simultaneously. It was delayed a year to add the wii features, and graphics were not great on the wii, and the gamecube got a delayed release that it didn't need. Both versions tend to suffer on the boundary.

News Comments > Ships Ahoy - Titanfall; First Patch Released

The last MP shooter I bought was BF3, and I didn't get my 60$ out of it (no sleight to the game). I just think I'm not really in this category of gamer anymore. The titanfall beta almost brought me back, honestly. I'd love to run around for a couple weeks with all the new players, but then I know I'll get bored and never touch it again. By the time I wait for a sale, it wont be fresh anymore, and I think the ship will have sailed for me. Too bad. Props to the devs for an interesting collection of mp fps elements though! I hope this is successful, and they can ditch EA for titanfall2.

Exceeded profit expectations vs fell short of expectations? There's no doublespeak going on - it's just a difference of whose expectations are being discussed, and whose expectations were actually reasonable

I've been waiting for another SP movie for a long time.

Instead of a 2 hour movie for $10 I get 12 hours for $60? Where do I sign up?

Not related but I'd like to see the VR solution from Valve. Devs say it's pretty good.

Some of valve's work influenced the changes in the oculus. Nice to see that they are helping each other rather than competing.

Wow. A KS that delivers MORE than was promised? A game the size of the Pandora Directive is quite a meaty adventure game indeed. Way to show those OTHER adventure games how it's done

I never understand these sort of announcements. So what you're really saying is 85.7 of people who tried your product feel it's not worth buying.

That's a pretty great conversion rate. And I'll take real info over glossed over press release bs any day.

I don't get it...
He's going to start his own company and then leave it or shut it down once it gets started?
Yes. I know people, who are like that. People, who like to get things moving and after things are moving on their own, they leave to move new things, because they are bored with simply watching the old things. They like to initiate the first major push, then move on. Not my work or life style, but whatever floats your boat ...

I think a lot of people fall into one of these two camps. Good at starting things, and good at sustaining/finishing things. You see that in the business world all the time, startups put together by driven folks who believe the impossible, and more practical people who come in to actually capitalize on what began.

Go! Go! Nippon!

So I'm looking at this game, trying to wrap my head around it. Why on earth was it made? What were the devs thinking? Who's the market for something like this?

Just...can't...under...stand... Wall

So I did some research. Apparently this company discovered it's English versions of Japanese Visual novels sell well and decided to make an original game aimed at the western market who buys their Japanese games. Hilarity ensues

I've known about Banished for roughly a year and a half, so it had SOME word of mouth. I think it's the case of a lot of the right people remembering what it was when it went on sale; and then just filling a void. (A finished non pixel-art non platformer indie simulation!)

Hasn't Kojima been trying to "step out from Metal Gear" since MGS2 or 3? Seems that he's been done while making MGS4, Portable Ops, Peace Walker, and the 5s -- he has an odd way of getting out of it.

People on the way out tend to get reeled back in a few times before actually following through. Letting go can be hard.

Just looking at the kickstarter updates isn't enough. "Backer only" or not, the rest of the internet is not following their kickstarter. What caused the backlash were the reports coming from other sites, the regular news sites that people DO follow.

They've had much better communication in this regard since "the incident", including setting up their future crowd sourced projects in a more open way. Of course there hasn't been much in the way of bad news to report either Better to not have bad news in the first place, because no matter how you handle it, people are still going to see through the spin.

Come on everybody! Raise some money to help fund the sequel! One SC certainly isn't enough. Hiring more people is the only way to be sure this can happen.

Invest in your future.
