I don't think that the gaming industry "hates" gamers. But I do think that the big publishers view their customers with contempt, and see them as disposable wallets. They literally care for nothing else except how to squeeze every single last fucking dime out of a customer.

And that attitude has largely rubbed off on most of the devs as well. There aren't very many devs left who make games because they love it. For most of them it's just money money money money. (And then they want to talk about games being art...)

It's sad.

Creston


To be fair to some of the other devs, it's sometimes hard to make games you love because of the demands of the modern gamer and well...the need to support your family.

A lot of the time I wouldn't want to be in their position...

Loved the story and lore, hated the combat. Maybe they can fix that this time.

They did fix that in 2. The combat in 2 was pretty decent.

SOTS2 was a train wreck for me. SOTS1 was great in comparison the sequel was clunky and bugged to hell. Until I see great reviews I can't even be arsed downloading the demo; too many other unplayed steam sale games.

SOTS2 was a wreck more than a year ago. They haven't stopped working on the game since then and it is a whole different game now.

Also...SotS1 was a wreck at launch too, people just have short memories or bought it after it was patched and updated to hell and had 2 expansion packs.

GMG has complete Max Payne 3 (the game and all DLC) for $14 after voucher. Or if you are like me and already had the base game, its about $8 for the season pass containing all DLC.
http://www.greenmangaming.com/search/?q=max+payne+3
20% off voucher code
GMG20-P4DLK-FKYRS

I have the base game and just can't bring myself to even contemplate multiplayer in a Max Payne game.

There is no way they didn't know it was this bad and they still put it out.

I don't have much sympathy for them. If you make something that's flat out bad...it doesn't deserve to do well.

News Comments > Aliens: Colonial Marines Season Pass and Bug Hunt DLC Announced

I'll say that, after all the years I've spent gaming, I can pretty well tell when I'll like something or not.

I can also tell when my not liking something is simply the product of it being a different genre than I like(like point and click adventure games) vs. it being simply a game designed in a way that turns me off.

There are games that will cause a large portion of Bluesers to be split down the middle. Then there are games which a lot of folks will say aren't worth it. Those games will still find people who like them. And some people will literally play anything in a given genre and say it is great.

In terms of pre-judging a game, it is absolutely sometimes valid to form an opinion based on what is presented by the developers. Especially when they tout certain features as major selling points that you greatly dislike. If a developer makes a game and sells it based on including QTEs as often as possible, for instance, than you can pretty much bet I'll hate the hell out of it. And nothing you can say will make me say it's going to be a great game.

If the fucking shoe fits than wear it, got it Veron? I post what I did because of the same shit like this. Got it??

The internet tough guy routine just makes you look silly Derks Glasses2

I honestly don't get it. There have been a million other games that people on Blues have said they hated before they launched. What makes this one so special to Darks?

Some of them have been spot on too. I remember the days of some folks staunchly defending Dragon Age 2. Then it actually came out...

I have a good theory I why many people don't like 3dog. Hint: Because he's black.

Strange is the day I find myself in agreement with Rattlehead...

Because that matters how exactly? He's a VOICE actor. WTF indeed.

That's exactly the point. He's a voice actor.

He did a pretty decent job. What the hell would it matter if he appeared in the next Fallout game for whatever reason?

What's the actual reason for people not liking him? Hell, everybody thought Claptrap was great in Borderlands and you can't get much more annoying than that. What's (unfortunate) about him being an NPC in the game?

Who would have been a better choice for the part and why?

Sorry, Slash, it sounded like you were agreeing with Rattlehead, but it sounds like you didn't read his vile "hint". Or perhaps I misread Rattlehead. He gave a disgusting reason that people didn't like 3Dog, but perhaps he was talking about other people, and not something he personally subscribed to.

I didn't think he was implying that he meant the reason for himself(or at least I hope he wasn't).

Although, I have seen plenty of times on internet forums where people express dislike for an actor or character and sometimes that's the only conclusion I'm left with because the people or characters they compare them to aren't any better.

I thought he pretty much did his part well.

HorrorScope wrote on Jan 20, 2013, 13:22:
I simply couldn't keep playing a shallow game like an ARPG over and over again. MMO's even have more hooks to keep one playing longer. I also wouldn't spend more then a $25 on a top/down ARPG game, it's old-school, small team material now. Bring that up into a nice 3rd person perspective, with the same over the top action, now you can get my fifty. But when it's Blizzard...

For me, Torchlight 2 was the right kind of game for the right kind of price.

I think the saddest part is that Blizzard's reputation alone will continue to let them do whatever they feel like and still be a successful company.

When Ubisoft pulled this, they felt the loss in sales and people not supporting their products as much as before to the point where they stopped with online only DRM. But if Blizzard pulls it, complaints are as far as it gets.

Everyone excuses them. From game reviewers to blind players, because if it is a Blizzard product, it must be worth the money, inconvenience and dissatisfaction to play it.

They're listening alright. They're listening to the sound of $600 million rolling in from the 10 million sales of Diablo 3. With that kind of validation for the deliberate regression of a once-great franchise they have no mandate to do anything differently.

They'd listen more if people voted with their wallets instead of internet forum rage.

I have neither D3 nor Starcraft 2 and I managed to live without them.

People knew that D3 was designed around forcing you to the auction house to cash in on RMT and bought the thing anyway. Mixed messages like that only serve to make them think we really do want any crap they dish out.
