I read the whole article and I'm still trying to figure out what RTW did any different than all the other developers whose multimillion-dollar-products tanked when released to the public.

I think a good game starts off with a catchy name. Why did they call it All Points Bulletin? What's in a name you say? Everything, except the game needs to try hard to match the expectations. Is APB a name to give a game that cost 100 million dollars to develop?

Known and popular franchises have a hard time to make a decent return on investment so what are the odds for something as bland and uninspired as APB?

I hope the Gamespot reviewer Justin Calvert updated his resume before posting his review on K&L2 because the rating sucks a$$. The sequel is supposedly better than the original and still it only scores 6.5 out of 10.

I'm sorry, but I won't be able to make it. I'll be most likely sleeping dreaming of Kerrigan.

That's quite a lot of people.

In other news, 75% of UK lack taste buds, which incidentally explains a lot.

Yeah, it makes perfect sense for the captain to leave the ship when everything's going just fine. Could it be that STO hit the proverbial (financial) iceberg?

Lifetime subscribers can only blame themselves.... I signed up for the beta, didn't get in, looked at some gameplay footage and saw that I would get bored of it real quickly and decided not to join. I suspect many drew that conclusion. Potential which is untapped remains only that, a lost opportunity.

Nothing worth doing is usually cheap. But I understand their strategy, they are trying to raise demand by creating a vacuum. I can wait, plenty of other fishes in the sea.

Rockstar devs on Gamasutra were telling people recently that they have no free bodies to port this, sorry fellas. They usually break in newer teams by porting older products but all of their people are committed to other stuff for the next two years. I hope something shakes out and they look at it sooner because I doubt they would bother 2 years down the line.

If that's the explanation why they won't make a port, I must say, that's pretty lame. I mean all the assets are done, all you need is a crew of a few skilled Russian programmers that modify the existing code, it's not like R* don't know how to do this since they've done it before.

"No, sorry, no time, I'm completely booked, I've got to buy my kid a Maybach Merc on Saturday for his 16th birthday and teach my dog to play golf on Sunday. Sorry, I just can't do it. Just get a console, you cheap SOB, and get off my back."

While I'm all for keeping local jobs alive, with so many people without a job, I'm just startled by such an excuse. Just hire more people you cheap SOBs.

It's all a question of your definition of art.

Music is art, artwork is... art, motion pictures are art, (voice) acting is art, so a combination of these art forms, which video games are, qualifies most certainly as art. There is no argument there.

Now there are a few cruddy movies and video games out there and they may probably not fall within anyone's definition of art.

Much ado about nothing I say.

That sinkhole sure looks impressive.

I'm glad some people are still discovering Top Gear, it's a funny show.

Those are not bug fixes, those are implementations to an unfinished product.

Imagine you just bought a car from Ubisoft and you get a letter in the mail about a Ubisoft recall telling you that you will be able to turn your steering wheel and open the car doors if you bring your vehicle to the workshop to have an important free upgrade.

SH3 was my last SH "game" from Ubisoft, period. Good luck with that DRM though.

Epic Mickey will feature a single type of ammunition. You can play as a male or female Mickey and the levels will be the size of a postage stamp. It's going to be totally awesome, cutting edge and all.
