Warcraft-inspired? You mean Warhammer? The Blood Bowl board game predates the first Warcraft game by almost a decade.

Well, on the bottom of the page I'm looking at we've got a white deputy who shot a person of color. A manslaughter charge of a white man who shot a 13 year old white kid. A white teacher who ran off with his white 15 year old student. A policeman who killed a person of color in a chokehold. A white police officer who shot a 15 year old person of color. Manslaughter charges in a Penn State fraternity death (looks like all white people involved). Teens rescuing a girl from a crash that killed her pregnant mother(ethnicities unmentioned). And yes, two stories involving criminal killings by men of color. Given this, I'd say that men are the problem. Or police are the problem. Or really, people who are given a random collection of stories and let their confirmation biases creep in are the problem.

You think Walmart is to blame, for the tech, failing.

Without the support of what is, likely, the largest in-store retailer of televisions, the technology isn't going to go anywhere. The inflated price from producers, as killer_roach mentioned, was likely a large reason for the lack of their support behind the technology.

I don't feel like the usage was the issue. Plenty of people are still watching 3d movies at the cinema (Dr. Strange was freaking amazing in 3d). If it wasn't selling there, they'd stop wasting money on it.

A fourth major problem, one that I forgot, was early exclusivity issues. Avatar 3d was, if I remember correctly, a Panasonic exclusive title for awhile. How to Train Your Dragon 3d was a Best Buy exclusive title. If you're trying to sell people on a major technology, it is, imo, a stupid idea to limit the tech's 'killer apps'.

Three of the biggest problems with the tech, imo, were:

1. Active shutter lenses. While I, by far, preferred these over passive, the relatively short battery life, cost, and lack of early standard killed their practicality.

2. The price. Despite the tech being touted as fairly cheap, manufacturers decided that we needed to pay several hundred dollars more for the availability.

3. Walmart. One of the largest retailers for televisions in the industry, and I stopped seeing 3d TVs after the first year of the technology, with 3d blurays being a scarce find thereafter.

Well, hopefully VR will end up being cheap enough to provide the experience.

Great game. I played it again last year and still had a ton of fun. I feel bad for the SMS. It had some fun games, but I have never met another person IRL who had one. Heck, I think I've only met one other person who knew it existed.

I'm glad this game is finally getting the attention it deserved.

"Think NFL Blitz with mutants, chainsaws, and deaths."

But definitely don't think of Mutant League Football. That may border on infringement.

If anything, the lack of teammates sitting on the couch with you is a pretty big disadvantage in communication.

So play with them on the couch. I play this at home with anywhere from 2-4 people on the TV. The PC version supports local split-screen play online. It's one of the reasons I love this game.

That's necessary, not generous.

He's releasing the game for free, fixing it, and allowing refunds from anyone who bought it. What is your skewed definition of generous?

Sure, but perhaps others would have blamed him (and other developers) without understanding why. I can respect his decision to vent, especially given his interpretation of the data.

Enjoyed the first one. Was planning on picking this up. I don't blame him for moving on but it would have been better if he just said nothing. Less sturm und drang that way.

Sounds more like an inside job from one of the SJWs.

I'm with you on questioning the credibility of the threats, but there is nothing here that supports any notion that it was an 'inside job.' The FBI isn't going to spend time tracking down anonymous internet threats to a gaming convention panel, and it's far easier and cheaper for SXSW to just cancel the panel than have to deal with this.

How do companies with large, varied sets of characters still manage to not exploit our nostalgic love for childhood IPs? I had never heard of this game before and now I'm tempted to buy it at retail price simply because I can buy He-Man and GI Joe characters to play it with. What fools manage these companies?

Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, and Portal 2 all offer split screen. Other games offer same screen coop. Magicka, for instance.

They should create a tabletop augmented reality version of the game. It seems like such an obvious extension of the technology. They wouldn't need to put much thought into it.

Games like Audio Surf, geometry wars, Beat Hazard, etc... are the indie type games that will get decimated by this policy. They are the type of impulse buy games that people will eventually think, "great game but I'll return it and wait for it to be $2.50" after an hour of playing.

What is wrong with this? If after an hour of playing you feel like it's not currently worth the asking price, you should feel entitled to a refund. Playing for an hour is not the same thing as owning the title.
