PUBLISHER BOARD MEETING

Voice 1: Well ladies and gentlemen, we have a fair bit of extra money in the Titan Lords' budget. What say we funnel it to the dev team so we can deliver an even more polished experience?

*SILENCE*

*SILENCE*

*SILENCE*

*Cacophonus laughter erupts throughout the boardroom*

Voice 2 through tears of laughter: You really had us going there for a minute buddy. Hahaha! OK...who does our CGI trailers again? Yeah, call those guys.

It's from the guys who made Bastion so I'm figuring that it should be more than decent.

News Comments > Towns Dev Leaving; Towns 2 Possible
5. Re: Towns Dev Leaving; Towns 2 Possible May 7, 2014, 10:23 Slashman
 
Here is what I don't get. The game was Early Access, not released as finished. Early Access, as far as I know, is not meant to fund development of the game as its primary purpose, but to involve the community in the development process for bug testing and feedback on features so that the final release is in decent shape.

Dwindling sales would only have an effect on your developing the game if that game was never properly funded for development in the first place. That's why people do kickstarters first to fund the development costs of the game and then do early access after to deliver the best version of the game possible.

So Towns was basically a cash grab/scam with no proper development budget. Awesome.

The only early access game I ever bought was Starforge. I have yet to install it but they are delivering decent updates on an almost monthly basis.

"It's" is ALWAYS a contraction for "it is" (or, less common, "it has").

Thanks to my sister, I've been ordering "brush-etta" from Italian restaurants for years. YEARS. A waiter just last weekend finally had the gaul to respond, "bruh-sketta?"

My whole life is wrong.

You should lock yourself away in a dank dungeon for years to come as payment for your transgression!

Want to form a clan and dominate the scum?

Hell no, I'm not putting my money anywhere near this thing!

Seriously, I don't agree with the more pessimistic predictions and I think questioning Chris Roberts' integrity is uncalled for. However, I'm not going to buy it until there's a game because although I've no reason to believe they're doing anything but trying to make the best game they can, that doesn't mean it will be particularly good.

Dude, don't be like that. I mean look how X Rebirth turned out...oh wait!

From what I've seen (30 minute vid of gameplay) and read, the game will exceed the quality and gameplay of the first Dragon Age.

Ima bookmark this for later...

I think my biggest annoyance with DA right now is how the end of DA1 had all these implications for the future of the world and none of that got explored in 2.

It's like: 'Hey, I may have helped create a new demon/dragon god baby that will sweep the earth under the tutelage of his mother!'

'No biggie...'

The problem is that doing so would create a completely different outcry.

Not everyone made a god baby. For them to use that as canon, they'd have to invalidate every other ending.

I used the words 'may have'. Other people had different endings. Every ending stopped the invasion. The point here is that unlike the ME series, there was no continuity for your character, and worse, no follow on from the good things in one. They even changed some of the characters for the worse, like Flemeth.

People were invested in the Dragon Age story. There was so much to discover about the nature of the invasions/wardens that was left untold and a hell of a lot more that could have been done. As much as some people crapped all over ME2, it had more of a feel of a sequel than DA2 ever did.

That's the thing with me too. After 2, I don't know if I want to have another go at Dragon Age, good game or not.

Plus there's the fact that Origin is going to be a requirement. That's a deal breaker all by itself.

I'm just gonna wait for Witcher 3.

Shame that they're discarding the pirate setting in favor of a more generic fantasy setting. I thought Risen 2 did a great job with the pirate stuff.

You seem to be in a minority on that front. Doesn't seem like most folks liked it.

I've loved the first OMD, so the second one was insta buy and I did not play it much. The multi tasking was killing it for me. The game was clearly made for coop play, but I didn't have anyone to play coop with, and in solo the game was more frustrating than fun.
This new OMD game seems even more MP focused so I have no interest in it at all.

I completed every stage in OMD2 solo with not a single Orc getting through the rifts. It just requires some thinking and bit of foresight.

I originally thought it required two people as well...but it really doesn't.

Sanctum was a 70 on metacritic with a user score of 6.7. Sanctum 2 is a 77 with a user score of 7.6. Who the hell needs facts these days?

My apologies I was looking at the xbox version of S2. Still doesn't matter, Sanctum was a shitty tower defense clone cashing in on the dumb tasteless masses. (aka if you liked it, you are one of the dumb masses).

It's part of why metacritic scores are all over the place, the masses are asses.

Not sure I know of many other, if any, FPS tower defense games, so I don't necessarily know I'd call Sanctum a "clone" exactly.

Like I said earlier: Who actually needs facts when skewed and insulting opinions are so much easier to wallow in?
