Do people really follow Tomb Raider enough to warrant making it "timed" exclusive for the xbone?

They can keep the game private too.

News Comments > SEGA Offers Aliens Lawsuit Settlement

Now SEGA needs to get their pound of flesh from Gearbox, or maybe they already did behind closed doors.

Randy and Co. were the ones that screwed the pooch with their E3 demo and saying how everything you see is in game, I did notice SEGA sanitized their site of all that footage as soon as the pitchforks started to come out but by that time it was too late.

I pre-ordered ACM and while it was a let down it wasn't the worst game ever.

But will the game punish you with death for exploring the environment and then mock you?
Nope, because a lot of the "kids" today would throw a hissy fit.

I'd love to see the return of a text parser.

I just don't even see point and click adventure games being popular anymore, unless it's the sublimely simplified mechanic of pointing and clicking to kill things. I don't hold out any hope for a hyper realistic game that can be played on Rift either.

They've taken it as far as it can go and have finally jumped the shark, next one is probably going to be a reboot back to WWII.

I only finished the game with a cheat that turned off the weapon degradation and never ending monster spawns.

Shame that the original ending cinematic went up in smoke with a hard drive crash.

And now EA will say that the profit margins aren't there to make NCAA games anymore, but won't relinquish the license.

Sorry, but adding modes to the arena does not seem to be moving this game closer to the very long list of goals that it has. I understand not wanting modellers to sit idle while you are programming, but is RSI seriously telling me with this that their programmers have nothing to do but add modes to the arena? Seriously?

I'm sure they would say something like "it was a quick and easy addition" I think they should focus more on making the basic combat simulation better like Elite Dangerous did. If they want to throw some resources at something how about TrackIR support, it adds a new dimension to these types of games where once you play with it enabled you can't play without.

Right now there are people trying to hack it into Arena Commander but it's just that a hack and you can only "freelook" you can't fire weapons while using TrackIR.

Maybe they're fighting against some brick walls in the CryEngine and it's putting entire teams in a waiting pattern. I think someone posted about how they seem to be more focused on making demos for the next game convention than really going head first into development.

They probably only have a handful of people that are really capable of working at the code level of CryEngine.

It's too expensive, might as well just buy a convertible laptop. And if you just want a tablet to e-read and consume video on there are much cheaper options.

Windows RT was a huge mistake as well, guess they didn't learn anything from the failure of Windows NT for RISC systems.

One thing is for certain, whatever they will be working on will shake the foundations which games like Quake and Unreal built. I just hope it's not a tablet game.

I somehow doubt it. People who really enjoyed Quake and Unreal went far beyond what the core games offered, they enjoyed the mods and free maps - or the ability to make said maps. Not to mention hosting their own servers.

Toxikk has stole his thunder, especially since it wont be free-to-fail. And if not that then I would expect the new Unreal Tournament to be a place where people looking for a twitch shooter to hang their that.

I would say he's about 20 years too late for reviving the arena shooter genre. I don't know why he's fawning over Tribes skiing, pretty sure I read an interview of him saying he hated the vertical gameplay of Starsiege Tribes.

He says that running a software development company helped prepare him for starting up his game studio but I would disagree, sounds like he went in way too big before he was ready. Did he never breakdown the profit margin from developing mobile games? Even as a complete noob I would take one look at multi-platform development for mobile and say no freak'n way.

He apparently didn't start off small enough, mobile game development is something you do in your spare time and if you strike gold then maybe expand into an actual business.

I still can't imagine why a simple flip book would be so hard to make, could it be that he's not as gifted of a programer that he thinks he is? Why would you even consider doing some lame in app purchase on a simple children's flip book?

Good luck with his PC endeavors, maybe third times the charm.

I don't think I'm that nostalgic for a 16bit game, Elite Dangerous is the right kind of remastering of a classic. This one plays it too close to just an HD version of the original.

I guess if they price it accordingly then maybe.

They are also bringing classic mode back, which is awesome I have to say. Its just like BF2, with no Regen, but with normal weapon damages (unlike hardcore) and no 3D Hud triangles (doritos).

Source?

I saw it on Reddit directing to a post from a DICE dev on Battlelog. I wasn't sure what "classic mode" was though, thanks for the info.

When kids can prove they have a basic level of education to read, write and do basic math then they should be allowed to have access to things like the internet and technology in the classroom, as a tool not a babysitter.
