News Comments > Win8 Age of Empires: Castle Siege Announced

When the Smoking Gun guys left Relic, they said that they wanted to follow their vision and do bigger things.

Apparently, bigger things mean another kick in the nuts of AoE fans with yet another P2W piece of shit. Way to go, Smoking Gun. Way to go, Microsoft (not that we expected anything else).

I have to guess that at least we can laugh at the thought that they really expect someone to move to W8 over this.

Borderlands 2 4-pack is more expensive per game than buying each one sepparately (5€ vs 22.5€).

Bravo, Randy. No wonder Aliens Colonial Marines turned out like that: you can't do even basic math.

Must be a Steam Europe thing, because here it's $5 and $15.

Must be. And it's still happening.

News Comments > John Romero's New Shooter Plans
60. Re: John Romero's New Shooter Plans Aug 12, 2014, 17:37 Paketep
 
Giant Bomb to the rescue:


The success of Doom and Doom II began to have an impact on Romero. Apparently, he became so engrossed with fame and deathmatching with fans that he neglected his work completely. This created a lot of pressure during the development of Quake and John Carmack was saddened that his programming buddy was skipping work. Carmack had no choice but to appoint American McGee from doing support calls to level design. It turned out to be the right decision as American was able to create more levels than Romero.

On August 6, 1996, Romero was called on a meeting and was given the news that his fellow id members were firing him. This was what John Carmack said to Romero,

"You're not doing your work! You're not living up to your responsibilities. You're hurting the project. You're hurting the company. You've been poisonous to the company, and your contribution has been negative over the past couple years. You needed to do better but you didn't. Now you need to go! Here's a resignation and here's a termination! You're going to resign now!"

id software arguably didn't make anything good after Romero left, so there is that.

Quake 3 disagrees with you.

Krovven wrote on Aug 12, 2014, 16:40:
On the topic of him leaving, it's also publicly known that others were forced out of id software for disagreements on the design of games and future of the company.

If I remember Masters of Doom (it's been a long time since I read it), he was fired because he wasn't working shit, he was just playing and chatting with fanboys about how great he was.

Krovven wrote on Aug 12, 2014, 16:40:
John Romero has nothing to prove, at least not to the heathens here.

He has, if he wants anyone to buy his game. That's if he finishes it, of course.

Unless you're giving us Doom 2 with challenging AI, 40 decently designed levels, enemies that actually pose a challenge, weapons that don't feel like yet another shitty M16 clone (don't forget all the goofy accessories), and full 32 player multiplayer carnage with LAN/Dedicated servers...

If I ain't gots me a chainsaw, a double-barrel shotgun, and an ample supply of demon guts plastered all over the screen: GET BACK IN YOUR HOLE ROMERO.

+1

The problem is that kids these days only want rail shooters and twitch tiny room shooters. Skill and level design is long gone....

And then there is the excellent level design of Titanfall.

You forget that like 98% of Blues didn't give Titanfall a chance because Activision/COD Creators. Be realistic Seph.

Nope. You have the answer in the paragraph above: Origin, no LAN and no public dedicated servers.

As for Romero, this will probably flop. He lost it years ago. If he delivers, fantastic, but I'm not wasting any breath waiting for it.

As for the hate?. Take the bitch ad, take what he did with Ion Storm, read how he takes credit for everything, read Masters of Doom. He was (and is) the Bieber of the gaming industry.

Same here.

Origin: not even free.

The true Origin is the one that did WC3. The current Origin can crash and burn with their idiotic DRM for all I care.

Far Cry was nice gameplay wise (and excellent visually), everything after that just big tech demos that looked great and played terrible to decent, depending on the game. And that was if you had the rig to move it.

If things go south, I'll be sad to see those employees go. I'll make an exception for Cevat "We would have sold 20 million copies if not for piracy" Yerli. He is one of those fucking huge mouths that doesn't belong in the industry.
