I'm blown away by how much money was burned on games that...just didn't sell. And he's getting back up for a third time to try again. Archmage rises doesn't look to be my kind of game, I have an aversion to turn-based games. Not sure why. But I hope it sells well.
I wouldn't be surprised if he got a small, short surge of sales on his other two games (is the storybook actually a game?) due to this article. Nothing that would justify their creation costs, but maybe a small chunk that could be funneled into Archmage.

I'm aware of an IOS game that has had like 30 million spent on developing it. The tech behind it is incredible and insanely powerful, but in the move from PC to IOS they've basically kneecapped most of the tech to shoehorn into ipads and iphones. I really don't know how it can make a profit. It's been 3-4 years of dev time and releases and is still bleeding money.

What's crazy is that the software is basically interactive real time music generation software that writes surprisingly good pop and rock music with little interaction on the fly. Why this shit isn't in video games and MMOs and shit all over the place is beyond me. Custom, real-time soundtracks that write themselves based on what's going on in the game seems like a natural fit for MMOs and shit.

i'm just curious to know, what's the name of this iOS app/game you speak of?

all i want is C&C General 2...

the graphics of this game look pretty decent for an RTS tho, if it really is indeed in-game footage.

This is a good way to get my money.

It's funny because I felt as though Fallout 3 was terribly over-hyped and not a lot of fun but I really, really like the Metro titles. They are easily the best shooters I've played in a damn long time especially when I got in on Last Light for 1 cent deal when Best Buy fucked up.

I'm more or less concerned about the requirements seeing as how the first one had incredibly steep requirements to max out but that may have been due to poor optimization.

oh... Bestbuy cancelled my order for that Last Light 1 cent deal way back saying it was a price error. i'm still waiting for a deal on it. i got Metro 2033 for free also earlier from a facebook or humble bundle thing but haven't gotten very far in it.

i'm glad that Crytek didn't go under... competition is very necessary in the limited game engine space.

Oh how I loved seeing the Sierra logo whenever my cousin used to load up the classics back on DOS in the 90s. Leisure Suit Larry, King's Quest, Police Quest, Gabriel Knight. Ahh good memories.

me too!! Sierra logo was a part of my childhood... *sniff*

The Phantasmagoria games were kinda creepy and a little scary...I might have pooped them while playing...a little.

We all pooped. Some of us more than a little.

my nickname is slightly based off that game's name. i loved it!

Not the name! They have been giving us a bunch of crap hardware wise. What happened to the Nintendo that came out with the Nintendo 64; the Nintendo that said we are all in hardware (graphics, etc...) wise! Oo

and the name Xbox One is probably another reason why sales for that console is also doing poorly for Microsoft as well.

i play scene demos, cracks and keygens just to listen to the chiptunes.
Why not just get their soundtracks (rip, ask, etc.) just to listen to them?

i should... don't have any favorites but will be looking into more of this stuff when i find time.

"Major Nelson"? pffft... is he in the army or something? i always perceived him to simply be a suite with a blog and nothing more. he was always a PR machine since the beginning when he joined with Microsoft.

and with Nintendo... i don't know what they're doing. this years E3 was pretty sad on the Nintendo front. they may have decent marketing but they just don't have any interesting games coming out for us "core" gamers. i'm crossing my fingers for some nice games to be revealed at Gamescom that i'd get for my Wii U or 3DS but not holding my breath.

i wouldn't mind playing a game like System Shock 2 or Deus Ex on my iPad Air. the inventory management and mini-games would be easy to control for me on the go as well. and also include mod support.
