News Comments > Bill Roper Interview
33. Re: Comments Aug 19, 2008, 12:06 WyldKat
 
Roper is not different from many of other Lead Devs for failing games. Garriott , Koster, Roberts and Derek Smart(see his old ibmpc usenet posts) all learned to lie with a straight face about the facts.

Wow wait what?

You're talking about...Garriott, the father of Ultima and MMOs along with Koster who has advocated totally free gameplay in his MMOs (being UO and Pre-suck SWG) and Chris Roberts of Wing Commander fame?

Seriously...where do I begin?

All of these people, even Derek love him or hate him, have all produced something that is immortalized in gaming history. Ultima series, Ultima Online, Pre-CU Star Wars Galaxies, The Wing Commander series. In fact all of those stated were ruined by the parent companies, not the designers. I would hardly call Derek's games failures either, sure they are not topping the sales charts but they clearly do well enough to earn him a living and fund successive sequels so I think he's found what works for him. It seems a bit like you dug up that comment just because he's reading, no?

Spore, if anything, is a good arguement against intelligent design, what with all the penis monsters and such.

This is akin to Microsoft ordering VMware to stop making virtualization software.

Funny, I just bought this game. Bought it on a whim mostly because I was aching for some Diablo action after the Diablo 3 announcement. Paid $15 for a brand new copy. It's definately worth that, it's a very fun game but it is disappointing they neutered so much to make paying for it worth something. Still...for $15 it was worth it. Hopefully a disgruntled dev will release the server code.

28. No subject Jun 11, 2008, 21:49 WyldKat
 
In any other industry releasing a product when it really needed "a few more months in the oven" would not cut it. If a movie needs a few more months they run over budget and hope that it does well enough to justify the expense with the logic that if they released crap, then the whole thing would flop. I don't really understand why gaming companies don't embrace this mythos. If you can't handle going over-budget to release a quality product then maybe you shouldn't be making games at all. Then again...I guess Flagship is the Uwe Boll of the gaming world.

"The truth of the matter is that funcom is out of development funds and needs to release this game next month."

Oh so what you're saying is that they are precisely in the same position they were in when they pushed Anarchy Online out the door.

Why is EA trying so hard to recreate the videogaming crash of the 80s?

Would Sony stop shuffling around SKUs and HDD capabilities? Hell I dont even use the 20gb on my 360. This whole axing the cheap ones so we can keep our product expensive tactic is precisely why I still haven't bought a PS3. I guess now is my last chance though to get one with PS2 support...

Fuck it, I'll just stick with my 360.

"God, I love This is Spinal Tap. Given today's plethora of reality TV schlock, this movie was way ahead of its time."

LOL me too! Stonehenge, the song, was the first thing that popped into my head upon seeing this article.

And yeah, that film is timeless, it goes to 11!

Game is a lot of fun, I wish we'd see this mod tied in with GMOD though, or at least elements of it. Making barricades out of breakable items and zombie killing devices would be cool.

Just a side thought..

Maybe they are delaying it so they can bundle it with Ep3 and Portal 2... <3

"delay delay delay, money money money, greed greed greed, thats all I hear from games companies these days. How about maybe letting a game sell on its own merits? "

umm wtf?

You're wrong. The Orange box was a killer deal. You can't honestly tell me that you wouldn't have bought at least two of the games for $20 each. Hell it was a great deal for me because I haven't played Ep1 yet and yes, I gifted HL2 to a friend that had never played it.

Valve is one of the few gaming companies out there that seems to be ran by the gamer, not the suits. After the Orange Box with Ep2 and Portal greatness, they left a good taste in my mouth.


...it tasted like cake.

Sims games ARE casual games...

Is there anyone else that believes this whole "casual games" movement is bunk and starting to ruin real gaming?

I would be excited about this if it weren't episodic. I guess I'll have to wait till they are all combined in one package. :\

Player housing would mostly benefit the roleplaying communties, you know, the people at actually make an effort to roleplay in an MMORPG... But giving that WoW has never really been built FOR actual roleplaying, unlike games like SWG which featured a lot more props and things for RPers to use, adding in player housing doesn't make a ton of sense because there really isn't anything to -do- with them in WoW, unlike what you could do with them in SWG or UO.

It would be intersting however if at some point guilds could capture actual towns for theirselves and fight over them, but Age of Conan will beat WoW on that one...
