Why would anyone buy an EA game? They shut down their servers within a year of the game's release. Screw them.

UBI is infamous for abandoning their unfinished games. Potentially good games ruined by unpatched bugs is their motto.

like all ARMA games you would be well advised to wait for at least 2 patches in before getting.

More like at least 4 patches but that will take them over a year to release.

Yes, BIS will support their games for a long time but it takes them a painfully long time to release each patch.

Most of their patches create more bugs than they fix.

After Arma1 I refuse to give them any more of my money.

Bohemia is infamous for horrible bugs and very slow patch releases.

I first found out about Xenonauts several months back in the comments of Blue's News. I was impressed with their progress and dedication to making this game.

Today I donated to their Kickstarter fund and it is going really well.

I loved COH1. Great game from a great company.

EA or UBI they are not.

Until they figure out how to prevent an enemy AI from seeing and killing you with an AK47 from miles away the game will always be for a niche market only.

I am tired of dying from some enemy AI that shoots with super-human precision when I still can't even see him.

News Comments > TAKEDOWN Kickstarter Funded
14. Re: TAKEDOWN Kickstarter Funded Apr 3, 2012, 00:59 Donkey_Punch
 
I agree, this one felt like a scam. For the first two - three weeks Christian Allen put ZERO effort into the Kickstarter. A few stolen graphics, no game title, lame video and updates.

Every time someone raised a criticism Christian Allen would bend to public opinion.

No clear vision.

I wonder what the $200,000 will be spent on? Trying to wine and dine investors? It barely even pays for an engine license.

News Comments > Crowdsourced Hardcore Tactical Shooter Becomes TAKEDOWN
13. Re: Crowdsourced Hardcore Tactical Shooter Becomes TAKEDOWN Mar 27, 2012, 07:53 Donkey_Punch
 
This project had failure all over it from the beginning. This Christian Allen guy put absolutely no effort into gaining backer's trust until the very end. Too little too late.

The guy has absolutely zero sense about marketing. His resume may be good but he made a lot of stupid choices for this Kickstarter.

He isn't the right guy to make this game. IMHO he isn't smart enough.

I can't help but think how much of a slap in the face the Double Fine and Wasteland 2 Kickstarters are to Christian Allen.

It is his own fault. He has done a piss-poor job on Kickstarter. He hasn't convinced the potential backers that he can get the job done.

His website is almost empty, he has no game title, no ideas. He keeps mentioning "his team" but so far it looks like it is just him (note how the blooper reel to his second video makes it look like he is alone and is operating the camera himself).

Can we get a Kickstarter to redo Rainbow Six 1-3?

Almost what you want. This guy worked on the original Ghost Recons:

As for UBI, maybe they hired the guys responsible for R6:Lockdown.

Hey, you get to go on the raid to take down Osama Bin Laden. Do you get to shoot unarmed women and men like they did in real life?
