dunno about anyone else but Aliens: Colonial Marines was the biggest bummer for 2013 if not of the decade.

News Comments > Cliff Bleszinski's PC Shooter Plans
9. Re: Cliff Bleszinski's PC Shooter Plans Dec 11, 2013, 22:44 bigspender
 
Man I'm so tired of people saying "we're going back to our roots" - when I hear people say that, I know the project is going to be a failure, whether its games, books, music, movies etc.

While it might not be an economical failure, artistically it always is, and certainly never comes close to the glory of the originals. The artist/director/designer rarely seem to know what made their product successful in the first place and tend to miss the point in these back to roots projects. It always ends up feeling like a project made by 12 y.o. fans rather the original person/people. Like they have a checklist of stuff that has been collected from forums that are popular aspects that they will put into the project - none of which are actually what made the original successful. They are too busy adding in these check listed items that they miss the reason the original was successful entirely.

More often than not it comes off as an old white guy trying so desperately to prove that he's not aging that in the process only further concretes his how far he has aged, and how far the world has moved on.

What I'm talking is things like:

-The new Robocop movie.

-Terminator 3 - just B version of the 1st two movies, yet nothing like them.

-AvP 2 / Prometheus(it was basically just the "cool" bits from Aliens 1&2 as well as Predator 1 , but missing the essence of what made those movies great)

-Star Wars prequels

-Expendables movies (lol)

-Avatar - well at least it was pretty.

-Every Metallica album since the napster incident. And pretty much every band that have made a comeback of some sort.

-Doom 3

-Rage

-Fallout 3 - most of the bits were there, but did it capture the mood of the originals? nope.

-Resident Evil 5/6

-Natural Selection 2

-Battlefield 3

-Diablo 3

-CoD Ghosts

While there might be to enjoy about all the stuff I've listed, none of it comes close to the impact the originals made, despite quite often finding a new audience. And thats the thing, despite how hard they try, it very rarely makes the original audience happy that made it popular or a cult classic in the first place.


I guess that's a really long way to say that I expect this project to be mediocre and most of its success will be riding on the past successes of its creator.

blizzard is totally irrelevant these days.

pre-WoW blizzard knew how to make games, now all they do is take year upon years to make 7/10 games.

lane strategy sounds more like a Dota / Moba clone - since everyone else has jump on the bandwagon, in fact its just a matter of time until there is a bandwagon themed moba...

Space Marine Sequel please with coop campaign!

Actually planetside 2 clone in 40k universe - there would be nothing more fun than being part of a 100 player orc mob looting and destroying!

So the remake was pretty damn cool - but its been given away for free for like a year - what makes them think anyone is going to pay for it now?

You see another ship floating in space.
You enter the ship.
A member of your crew gets killed. You can't do nothing about it and didn't know this could happen.
This happens 3 times in one playthrough. You exit the game. You uninstall it.
Why did you do it another 2 times after it failed the first time? lol.

Either way its a rogue-like, if you can even make it to the boss you've done very well

This strikes me as just another toy that will be gathering dust on people's shelves before too long.

I think it will be a must have for the sim community. If it doesn't make people vomit that is

A lot of people have a trackIR for tracking head movement in games/sims, and that already is very immerse but this is a whole new level, and then some with the 3D technology.

pfft these guys know nothing about the games industry, they should release today, patch tomorrow on whatever is biggest issue, and then release the better spells as DLC

I'm really glad they are delaying, its a cool idea for a game!

"Monetizing wasn’t mentioned in our communications and it was an error on our part to not have clarified the issue."

Still cocks even at the bitter end, what do they think a review / evaluation key is going to be used for?

What a bunch of little shits, they can't make a good and then have a cry when people don't like it.

if it can't do mouse like accuracy at same speed a mouse can(which it can't, it looks about 10 times as slow and quite frustating too!) then its inferior and therefore pointless - youre much better of with a bluetooth mouse on the couch.

this looks incredibly slow and very laborious - my thumbs got sore just watching that video.

PC gamers complain when companies don't port. PC gamers complain when companies do port (even if lacking the resources to do an excellent job). What're you gonna do.
Lacking resources? Lacking care maybe, lacking enough common sense to realise that people on PC like to be play in their native monitor res.....
Edit. You don't need to do an "excellent job", you need to do the bare minimum.

It took 1 guy to fix the resolution and unlock the FPS less than 24hrs. I donated him my money and bought the game off the cheapest website I could find.

The people that ported this thing over are complete morons. This is quite possibly the worst port ever.

I'm totally ok with that as long as the PC version is better this time around.

here's hoping we don't need 3 or 4 mods just to get to a playable state
