How can they consistently keep screwing this up?

Shouldn't you learn something after 2 failures?

You also have to look at the other costs of developing a console game. Meeting the standards of the console makers, paying for their dev kits(which is per person on the dev team I think) and passing their QA processes.

There is also a definite difference in the buying habits of PC gamers and console gamers. Most of the people I know who own consoles automatically buy GTA or CoD games or any of the popular 'must have' AAA blockbusters. That mindset seems much less prevalent on the PC where a wider variety of genres and tastes come into play.

This used to be a fun gaming news site, but a few of you are trying your best to turn it into reddit or 4chan. I'd like to keep BluesNews as it is/was, that is why I've came here for so long, and I doubt I'm the only one who thinks this way. I didn't post this to hurt your feelings, make you look bad, or call down the wrath of righteous reply posts, I posted this because you're being a douchebag, quit being a douchebag.

What the hell are you actually talking about? This site has always had people who really like something and say it and people who really hate something and say it. And then inevitably there is debate back and forth.

SC keeps getting headlines. It will keep getting comments from both sides of the fence. That's how forums generally work. It doesn't even happen in every thread. But SC is pretty much unprecedented in gaming history. You really think people are going to stop making comments about it either way?

My suggestion is to grow up and learn to accept differing opinions. Read the headlines and follow the links to the original source if you don't want to read the debate over the game.

Technically Ronin were masterlass Samurai and therefore not considered to be Samurai. And no, Samurai were not Ninjas. Anyone could be a Ninja, not anyone could be a Samurai. Samurai despised Ninjas as they had no codes.

Thats all bullshit.. its saturday morning cartoon knowledge

"ninja" isnt even what they were called, thats more modern bullshit

samurai who had the balls to do crazy midieval black ops shit would get training from specific clans of other samurai who were specialists at sabotage and infiltration.. they were shinobi

but dont worry about it, mutant turtles are more your speed anyways

You're not exactly bursting with factual knowledge either.

They weren't, strictly speaking, samurai. A lot of information about them isn't really known. They were mostly made up of a mixture of refugees, bandits and soldiers who had lost battles. Shinobi is what they were known as primarily and they were mostly inhabitants of Iga and Koka (families that over the years developed lots of clandestine warfare techniques). Cutter isn't exactly wrong when he says anyone could become a ninja. While not anyone could, you didn't have to be of noble birth to do so.

Well it's Sony behind the wheel right?

More than likely the developers' hands are tied by contract and they can only nod in agreement with whatever crap the people paying the bills ask for.

I won't deny the scumminess of the move, but I can also understand if it wasn't their idea in the first place. Chances are, when you see something that makes no friggin' sense and there is a big publisher involved, the big publisher is the one behind it.

Just stupid of the developer to include anything about rape in a game. Just shows that instead of just making a game that they are extremely insensitive to a very touchy subject. That would put the idiot label on them.

Yup, he should have just smashed her brains on the wall with a bat. Because everyone loves a good juicy murder, and no one is touchy about that at all.

That's always baffled me as well. You can survive a rape. A gunshot to the head at point blank range...unlikely. But one of those two things is A-OK in a video game and the other not at all.

It's highly insensitive and horrible to people who have been raped to portray that in a game, but it's not equally insensitive or horrible to people who have lost loved ones and family to acts of murder....

I've wanted to get in on this series for a while but it seems like every version they release is buggy and boring.

It looks great though...

So many possibilities with this logic..

Hot damn! That never occured to me?! Now Im gonna have to rewatch those movies (kill me please!!)

The fact that you're re-watching them will do the job for you.

It's called Total War, not Total Sex Simulator.

Also, Chris Taylor tried to KS a stone age game. It tanked.

W-what? People wanted the family tree mechanics back in the TW series. I'm just proposing they add Stone Age marriage mechanics.

"Our goal with "Universal Combat Advanced", the spiritual successor to our long running Battlecruiser series, is to retain all features, while completely overhauling the graphics engine, game world, assets (models, world, terrain, art) and audio engines. In other words, a modern graphics remake of a classic game."

So it sounds like the goal is to make it look pretty while keeping all the crap and drudgery that made it such a lemon in the first place. Sounds fun!!!!

I played a bit in the beta.. and I know it's different in live, but from my experience and the comments I am seeing from the community..there's not much to do once you get a decently outfitted ship (and they can be gained quickly). Along with that, and I understand "hey man, it is space".. it's VERY empty and I felt alone.

The lack of interaction with others/NPCs has been such a sticking point, that the Star Citizen fans came out to the forums to say "please.. make sure we don't feel like we're alone"

Yeah the whining of Star Citizen fans fills me with concern. Rolleyes

If they were smart they would of started F2P and incorporated some sort of modding/design market like Valve has going with Steamworks and DOTA2. Stick to your strengths.


Or maybe they could have not done this at all and saved a lot of time and money. Who the hell was asking for an Elder Scrolls MMO?

Why the hell would they turn a decent series like OMD into F2P garbage?

Will nothing be free of this F2P/P2W taint?

Robot Entertainment was one of my favourite devs too.

This post is pretty much hysteria.

Well I didn't know you were a mind reader too. Good for you.

Yeah. I generally think that F2P is extremely cruddy. So far I'm mostly right. Even according you.

I don't kow many many smaller devs that went into F2P and then went back to standard games. Maybe you can name me a few.
