I will not play this game unless Deadpool himself apologizes for how buggy and boring it's going to be. *folds arms*

News Comments > Molyneux's "Game" Next Month

I think I figured out what the prize is.

Suppose you're the kind of person that actually buys this game. And even one of the more expensive pickaxes, for that matter.

Suppose also that you are lucky enough to open the box.

A message appears on your screen: "You spent a total of $money and hours :-minutes-: seconds on this. Congratulations!"

That revelation would be either life-changing or life-ending. Either way, a profound net gain.

I thought this stupid shit was canned after the trailer was mercilessly mocked.

Where is the Peter I knew who was a genius, who developed Populous 1 and 2, Powermonger, Syndicate? All I see is an insane man in his stead.
Maybe Dracula kidnapped the real Peter Molyneux! :O

Me: The only thing wrong with Peter Molyneux's latest project is the name. It should be Egomania.

A friend: Shouldn't that be the name of ALL of his projects?

Me: All his other projects are adulterated with fun, original, and infuriatingly unfinished ideas. This is his mental illness distilled to its purest form.

Blizzard's non-response on the matter is fucking outrageous.

Yet typical!


More than that; it's best practice. This is turning out to be such a fuckup that they can't say anything outside of a courtroom.

For obvious reasons, I am significantly in the minority on this: I think the RMAH is a great idea that could solve a number of problems.

The implementation of that idea has been so hopelessly cornholed that it likely cannot be fixed without legal action that gets it first completely removed. If we ever see a working version of the concept, it won't be for at least a year after Blizzard has finished paying out settlements.

Oh god. They're responding to this problem by making it worse. How can they not realize what a bad idea SMS Protect is? Many dumbphones are practically disposable through prepaid services. The gravy train just got a new car.

On behalf of the six people who would actually want a sequel to Ricochet: screw you, gaben.

So, basically what I read here is that Microsoft is committed to turning out piles of console port fucktrash, with "core" gamers served by old, dry, boring horseshit via GFWL.

Now Windows 8 on all your PC's that's something to scream about.

I'd love that. I think this weird interface fetish they're developing is disturbing, but they'll get over it. Generally speaking, if you want your rig to do all the latest shader tricks, it needs the latest windows on it. So... yup.

Fortunately, they can keep having other companies make products that are actually relevant out of it.:V

I don't think it makes any sense. There's no reason for Apple not to use their own store.
One reason why is in the post you quoted. With SteamPlay, another is a large legacy library.

I still like my rampant speculation better, though. I hope somebody sneaks a camera into the fight. I want to see if gaben really can unhinge his jaw like a snake.

From a conversation with a friend.


Me: (this story)

Him: ....god, I hope this is either nonsense or not business related.

Me: It being business-related could still be good, or at least non-harmful, in two ways.

Three. I meant three.

The problem I have whenever I try to enumerate things like this is that I can't keep track of what they are and count them at the same time. I should ask a neurologist about this. They could write a paper.

Anyway.

Him: Hahahah your brain.

Me: 1) It's something to do with that SteamPlay stuff they used to get games on the mac.

2) Valve IS going into the standardized rig biz, and Apple has showed up to try to strongarm them into overcharging like they and Alienware do. This is Gabe Newell. Strongarms just sink into his doughy surface. We'll be safe.

3) They're going to do dipshit peripherals. w/e

Him: I like number 2 the best.

Me: Yes.

The way I basically picture this playing out is Cook gets to gaben's office, and he starts flexing those arms, and Gabe just gets really super-pissed and he climbs on his desk and the eye lasers come out. Winner: Newell, TKO 2:27 into Round 2 when the doctor stops the fight.

No... it was his double! They sent him to foil an assassination attempt, because the real Cook is going to Microsoft.

Huh. This is a perfect example of how hostile it can be to simply quote somebody out of context.

My first reaction: "oh woo. Some corporate cheesedick who doesn't play games thinks he's qualified to say shit because lots of money is involved. Love this shit."

I read the article: "weird... this makes sense. And... yeah, he's just continuing to make sense. Okay, cool, doing something else now. Not in the mood to watch somebody boring make sense."

They would've pissed people off alot less if they'd just told the truth: if you play this game with a mouse, you're objectively wrong. It's just not that kind of game. Reaction is more important than precision.

My guess: no matter what else went with it, they pretty much just sold the name because they're finished making games. Rovio will pump out hackneyed, lo-fi, casual trash with Futuremark's name on it, and we'll never see anything that tries to bring unique game concepts and solid graphical scalability together again.

I am really glad the main story is definitely finished in the next game, because the more I hear about what they're doing with this franchise, the more I'm convinced it's time to get out.
