News Comments > Fez II Cancelled
47. Re: Fez II Cancelled Jul 28, 2013, 22:14 Beelzebud
 
Well the simple fact is that people managed to develop video games just fine without the use of Twitter right up until 2006. It's not necessary, and if you only find grief on it, why use it. It's not a valid excuse to close a company.

Billions of people deal with stress every single day at work. Grow up and deal with it. At least he has the option of just not using Twitter, or other social media. Most people are just stuck with a shitty boss, co-workers, etc.

You give that guy a standard office job, or better yet manual labor, working for a boss who doesn't give a shit about your feelings, and he'll be begging to go back to working for himself making video games.

I love the drama. It's like Derek Smart is alive again.

Wait, Derek Smart is still alive, isn't he.

Derek Smart.

Derek Smart could roll with the punches and serve up some funny zingers himself. He never acted like a whiner.

The final commitment, now this game can slip quietly out of existance, kinda like Hicks between the movies.... (although, didn't they find his pod to have been sabotaged or something?)

Hicks and Newt died when the pod crashed. That's the official story, not Gearbox's Fan Fiction. The face hugger fucked up all the shit in pod with its acid.

Yeah the idea that this should be taken as the "real story" is laughable. Sorry Gearbox. Stick to Borderlands, as its obvious it's what you care about.

It runs flawless on my Arch Linux install. Now if only I could see what's in the game that makes so many people go nuts over it.

News Comments > Epic Working on AAA Shooter

What else would Epic be working on? All they do are shooters and all their shooters are "AAA", if you define AAA as exceedingly expensive with a very long development cycle followed by numerous non-free add-ons. These were once called expansions back when they were longer and actually added something meaningful to the game they were a part of.

Epic has a lot of aspects about them to complain about, but paid DLC isn't one of them. Let's not forget that every single UT game, including UT3, got a very sizable update for free, that would easily be paid DLC these days. When it comes to Gears, no one gets to put out free DLC on Xbox Live.

Looks like the Linux beta is being added at the moment too. It downloads but is missing the executable. Standard practice for their Linux releases.

The last time I played this game was using a Playstation emulator on my modded Xbox-1. Played great on that.

This would be like if the guys that made FTL decided to program an advanced 3d engine, and model their universe out in it, because they got a shitload more money than they asked for.

They got over-funded, stayed true to the game they pitched, and no one got upset because their game was really great.

Yeah that sounds more like an under-powered server. I've been playing the Linux beta on and off for a month, and it's been running fine.

I hope they fix the naming convention in Steam.

Currently the Linux client shows "Left 4 Dead 2 Beta" and "Left 4 Dead 2 (beta)", the "(beta)" one being the not-beta one...

I think this is pretty a pretty shitty situation, myself. I mean these guys just completed another different kickstarter a few weeks ago. Can we expect them to not be able to plan their budget again?

It seems sort of shameless to pitch a Kickstarter for no planned game, take in more money than you ask for, go over budget, and then do another kickstarter before anyone knows the first one is over budget and seeking more funding...

I can see why publishers didn't want to work with these guys...

I recommend it. It's almost like an action RPG, with a small fleet of ships instead of a hero character.

The only way id Software will ever get its mojo back is to re-hire John Romero, American McGee, and Brandon James, but that will never happen, so forget it.

It says a lot about the shortsighted stupidity of the people running the publishing houses. These are people that don't play games, don't care about them as art, and don't even understand them.

Is it really shocking news that it doesn't require 100 million dollars, and a generic Hollywood action movie style story, to make a successful game? FFS

But hey if they've finally awoken from their slumber, that's good news, I guess, but it's really sad that this would be news to these people.

FWIW DOTA2 is a free to play game, so technically you do all own it.

Given the scam-like nature of mail-in rebates, and the fact that I've only ever gotten back about half of the ones I sent off for, I'll pass.

Ravenholm was one of my favorite parts about Half Life 2. That being said, I'm not sure how much mileage you could get out of an entire game based around it.

Marketing bullshit.

Games either use Direct X, or Open GL. Both vendors will strive to fully support both APIs.
