that is how a shifty guy says the game is making money so they'll make another to make more money.

News Comments > C&C4 Layoff Rumor

EA is a big company and big companies only give a shit about big money makers. That means big blockbusters. Mainstream audience. Lowest common denominator. Movies, music, games, it's all the same. If you want something out of the ordinary then you can't go to the big company for it.

It happens this way everywhere in our capitalism-run-amok society. Take a look at checkout aisles in stores to see what appeals to everyone. Candy and gossip?

C&C RTS and oddball action games with proven-small audiences have no place in a billion dollar blockbuster business like EA. Wave goodbye.

> review sites like IGN being bought and paid for a good review of this game.

that is why dragon age got such high numbers when it is half a turd. it happens all the time, reviewers not even fully playing games, writing up summaries like the back of a box.

what kind of people do you think review games, what pedigree, I'll tell you what, most of them are losers who don't come from a journalist background where they had a modicum of integrity

lol this is like taking shares in a startup instead of extra cash

or buying hellgate

> No, combat on normal difficulty bends you over and rapes you.

you said "No" but didn't actually disagree with what I said

I agree with you that it is too difficult. bioware obviously misjudged something when they decided to make such a big modern game with such unpopular old mechanics.

the fact is that almost nobody can (or wants to) partake in such old school gameplay.

this is why the first PC patch lowers the difficulty, and why the console ports started with even lower difficulty.

lol patching the difficulty down. probably because it has unheard of returns at retail

there is a good reason the marketing doesnt show what this game is actually like

much smarter. the money from MMORPGs is made from long term subscribers, not from people who start and quit.

so it doesnt matter if the start and quit people get a bunch of the game for free whenever they want. all that matters is catching the one fish who will stay

this is a computer game in a console era. it was delayed to port it and TRY to make some money.

flawed idea from the start though. you can't take out the 1990s with just friendly fire and camera tweaks.

this is the last time you'll see a game like this from a big company. for a very long time, if ever. the economies of selling games are totally different now. read a financial press release. limited content and DLC is a business model and patches have set budget and time window. frequent releases is the name of the game.

10. Re: No RAGE Dedicated Server? Nov 5, 2009, 22:14 loomy
 
grow up kids, all the money is made on the consoles so games will be made for the consoles

console games need auto aim and lower difficulty and no dedicated servers and DLC instead of free patches. get used to it unless you plan to do something about it.

"At its core, the Jedi knight is about getting into battle as quickly as possible, dominating the fight and protecting allies."

as opposed to what? what do the other classes do? arrive late and fight poorly? hurt their allies?

come on. this game is going to struggle for years of patches to deal with the classic star wars multiplayer conundrum. did SWG ever figure it out?

this game is ridiculous, it is a copy of diablo more than any diablo clone I've ever played. it is actually blatant in its copying.

I assume it is kind flattery, but it is insulting to blizzard and patronizing to the player. I'm pretty liberal but if I were blizzard I'd be pointing my lawyers at this game.

News Comments > PC Gamer UK: Dragon Age "RPG of the Decade"
27. Re: PC Gamer: Dragon Age "RPG of the Dec Oct 27, 2009, 01:10 loomy
 
KOTOR is the best of the decade so far. mass effect 2 wants to unseat it. dragon age will not.

computerandvideogames.com and pcgamer are both future inc, a company that is not what it used to be. at the very least all the original staff have moved on and you're reading a new generation of dbag:

"the most enormous... enormously silly... gigantic environment... enormously detailed... the battles enormous..." this kid graduated from clown fucking college just now.

valve is the fastest growing publisher in the industry. nobody is buying valve unless the owners get tired and sell to one of the big two for a 50% premium over valuation
