News Comments > Star Citizen at $50 Million; New Commercial

Ehm... Big names in Wing Commander? Mark Hamill seems to be a very nice guy, but nowhere a big name in movie biz. Except for Star Wars, his career has been less then stellar (pun intended). And Rhys-Davies neither is a top star in Hollywood, but has been co-starring in some good movies (Raiders, Rings...) AND starred in a lot of cheap b- and c-movie productions. Both are not earning million(s) for (voice) acting.

Which is, of course, totally comparable to recording phone calls, e-mails, and everything else of tens of millions of citizens in friendly countries... Rolleyes

As for the extra money raised, that's going to things like hiring big name voice actors (which they reckon could cost $20-30m)

I don't know much about producing games, but a bit about movie production. $20 to 30m for VOICE acting is A LOT. For this money, they could get Tom Hanks, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, and Cameron Diaz. They all range between $5 and 15m (voice acting). You can get 10 to 15 non top tier hollywood stars for $20 to 30m like Nic Cage or Adam Sandler. If they go with third tier stars like e.g. Vin Diesel, they can hire 30 to 40 well known actors for that price. And I doubt that this is what they will do. I expect them to hire five or six well known actors and actresses in the $500,000 to 1m range and lots of other experienced but mostly unknown voice actors instead of hollywood stars.

News Comments > Design TF2 Merchandise, Profit
2. Re: Design TF2 Merchandise, Profit Aug 15, 2014, 13:03 El Pit
 
And all of this is soooo much cooler than working on Half-Life 3, Valve? Really? Gabe, move some desks to the H-L3 group and NAIL them there. Then glue some guys who would rather work on TF2 hats, updates for the DOA Steam OS, or the Steam controller which is now pretty much exactly the same as all those other console controllers to these chairs and tell them to work on H-L3 "or else".

Really, even Duke Nukem Forever has been released a few YEARS ago. If Star Citizen is released before H-L3, then we all know that Valve is no longer into designing games ever again. They rather buy indie developers with their semi-ready games, release those games, and then let the indie developer work on TF2 hats. Can it be? Is Chris Roberts superior in managing game development to Gabe and those Steam Pipes at Valve?

Then again, what could a company called Valve with a service called Steam produce but Vaporware? Hot wet air?

EDIT: Okay, I love my Steam. But it's really pissing me off that there is NO episode 3 and no H-L3 news. GamesCom is running, and what are the gaming News that Valve/Steam is serving us? They're letting users work on TF2 underwear. Great.

Clever move by EA. This way nobody needs to torrent this game to "test" it.

Well, THIS is a game where they should take the Metro/Resident Evil etc. approach and do a System Shock 2 Redux in a modern engine. And for this redux/remake, I'd gladly pay them 20 or even 25.

Companies have to make their money, in order to stay in business.

So why not make a new game then? What sense does it make to rerelease old games on newer engines? What I have seen of Metro 2033 there is no need at all to update a linear corridor shooter that looked fine already.

Those hd remakes are "en vogue" at the moment. Resident Evil, the Metro games, The Last of Us, and so on. It's alright, it's easy money. No need to work on new contents, "just" polish it. Well, some do a little polish, others do real remakes in new engines. It's "pretested" successful contents, so the devs and pubs expect the customers to buy it again. It's a low risk approach. And I don't damn them for this, it's worth a try.

They don't have to offer the discount at all.

And I don't have to pay as long as it's full price. See, there's an option for all of us. We can all be happy. I would have preferred them taking the Deus Ex approach: $5 for an upgrade per game. They chose not to (which is their right), and I choose not to buy at this price (which is my right). As I said before: I can wait. I'm only about 60 hours into "Divinity: Original Sin" and have just started playing the "Tomb Raider" reboot (which is pretty entertaining except for the far too many QTEs). And my Steam backlog is so huge, I won't be able to play all those games in my lifetime. So there's no problem. I will wait until this upgrade reaches the price I'm willing to pay, and this way they will get some money and I will get the upgrade at a reasonable price. We're all winners!

So, there are towels in the hangar? I sure hope they are working on a space laundry first and foremost. That's what people want. Make it the next million $ bonus goal.

Could we please have different towels? BANG, another million $ stretch goal. See how the money rolls in?

The people who didn't get paid always had the option to quit and find a job somewhere else. But hey, that would take some personal responsibility which is so uncool these days, so let's blame the guys at the top instead! Well good luck finding a job when Crytek is no more, after having badmouthed your company in public. That always goes over real well with prospective employers. Maybe they can become taxi drivers - by all accounts, the game industry sucks to work in anyway.

It's called the fucking social contract, asshole. Maybe Yerli and those dicks should sell their luxury cars and pay what they OWE people. How about that? The reason society doesn't collapse and run wild is because we mostly all agree on the way things are done like exchanging time and labour for money and/or goods. What do you do just rib and murder people to get by? Fucking clown.

These must be strange times, but I agree with Cutter.

Wait, did I really just write this?!

So Casey Hudson came into the head honcho's office, where the boss' kid sat on a table. On this table, there was a red, a green, and a blue letter. All of them said "You're fired!", but on the red you could read "...but it was a n amicable split", the green said "...because you wanted to leave us", and the blue said "...because WE fired YOU". Hudson slowly clapped, took the green letter, and left quietly.

Was it a braindead decision to release this game? Is this release DOA? Will it feature "Bullet in the Head" by Rage Against The Machine in soundtrack? And how is George A. Romero involved? All this on Steam TV tonight! Braaaaaaaiiiiiiins... Time to watch Return of the Living Dead again. And again. And again. And...
