News Comments > SiN Episodes Q&A

Funny, just 1 week ago I wrote a post in a different forum that that the Sin episodes were ill-fated and doomed and that Valve will most probably stop releasing episodes after their HL2 Trilogy because the business model does not work.

Seems that one half of my post has already been proven right and I have no doubt that the second part will also become true.

Episodes works if done correctly and till now I have only seen one true episodic serie: Sam & Max

...and now we know the real reason why Valve sued developpers of a advertising mod for CS1.6 a few months ago, suckers.

Well at least Tim Schafer found some sucess with Psychonauts.

Yes, but was the initial PC game release profitable? I heard otherwise...

I believe Psychonauts will now do much better after being made available on Steam.

I have to dissagree with Ubisoft following EA.
Ubisoft did good by me personally for doing a PC version of GRAW, and not some crappy shitty port.


True. Adding to that, Ubisoft has also some fine quality gameseries which improve game by game (Splinter Cell, Prince of Persia, maybe even FarCry?)

EA has nothing like this anymore, their fast-food-development-rushing-out teams destroys one franchise after the other with mediocre games (BF, NFS)

Meh, last EA game I bought was NFS underground, since then I have not bought a single EA game and I doubt I ever will.

My last EA game I bought was BFV and already then I hesitated to buy that game because I knew what would happen to EA and their games.

Some people recognize evolutions later than others I guess...

Coleco was out around what, 83-86 or something like that? Apple IIe was blazing all the way till 80-86! But, when Coleco Vision came out, EVERYTHING died! it wasn't because of Coleco, it was a swell unit, but people just got sick of games.

When the Coleco died, the best gaming computer came out. The first Atari ST was released 1985 and started a period with many excellent games. It was, like a previous posters said, a period of pure gaming bliss.

This period kept on till 1993 and still today in 2006 I sometimes get my old games out and play them in a emulator, just to remember myself of the great time. I certainly can't recall people getting sick of games after 1986 like you said. Must have been in your head.

...because there are only a few ten thousands available and not because the console is so great.

All of that may be true, but as a coding and graphic artist ig-no-ray-moose, I find that it makes great looking games. I like the way it looks. Isn't it all about the way it's used?

Yes, nice and shiny on the outside, fake and staged on the other side. Potekim would have proud of Valve if he still lived.

The Source engine, partially thanks to HDR, has held up fine, I'll give that to Valve any day. I love that engine.

The whole Source engine is a deeply flawed, bug-ridden and obsolete engine. Every single game which builds on the Source engine proves it down to the core. There is so much wrong with Valve design that I'm wondering why any developer can be so foolish to choose the Source engine for its project.

Fortunately for Valve, the Source engine looks somewhat decent eventhough the engine was already outdated before it shipped, so some people might get fooled that the Source engine might be a nice engine. It's build around hacks and instead of fixing the fundamental wrong design decisions Valve took years ago, they are adding more buggy, unneeded stuff.

Was Brett Thomans paid by Sony to write this article? There are so many mistakes in it and facts he didn't want to write about that I even don't know where to start criticizing his column.

yeah, I read that but Fist Alpha also included singleplayer maps, hence my question.

Does this addon also offer singleplayer maps or is it multiplayer only?

I haven't seen any of the movies yet (kinda burned out on EA arcade racers), but it sounds like this is alot like Underground 1 and 2 (only played 2). Yes or No?

yes, NfS:C has been made by the same team which developped HP, U1 and U2. NfS:MW was a different team.

Exciting and well-made old-school 2d adventure! I'm almost through the German version now and this game is giving me my needed adventure "fix" which is quite rare to get these days.

I can really recommend this game to any adventure gaming fan.
