News Comments > Mad Catz Closed

They would have signed the papers to dissolve the company sooner, but they only had Mad Catz pens to work with. The first one was broken out of the box, the second one ran out of ink halfway through the first initial, and the third one only worked from right to left.

Don't care what the stretch goals were then, don't care now. If more content gets patched in later, great. Gives me an excuse to replay it. If not, didn't care to begin with.

Sad, but probably true. At least they were able to get Homeworld updated and working for modern systems. I'll forgive them a lot of their transgressions for just that fact.

I am fine with your envy and I am fine with this game. It is coming along quite nice. When it is out, I'll be sure to send you a big "i told you the fuck so, you fucking prick..." With a smile of course..

When you do finally snap out of it, the blowback is going to be glorious to behold. I'll be curious to see what it finally takes before you reach your breaking point and all that smug turns into rabid frothing.

T-Mobile started to fall into the same trap as AT&T. Calling to make an account change? Upsell, upsell, upsell. Calling to report an issue? Upsell, upsell, upsell. Calling to check your usage? Upsell, upsell, upsell. Then my connection suddenly went to crap, and their only solution was "We changed formats, so we have to sell you a new phone and an attached 2 year contract to get your connection back up to speed!" So I bought a new phone from someone else and dropped them as a carrier entirely.

Did anyone honestly miss Xen? It was the worst part of the original game.

Does anyone even want this game?
No. But they'll market the everloving crap out of it and move as many units as they did with the original steaming pile of crap.

That being said, the DLC for that steaming pile, Bad Blood? Actually made it worth owning. So if you pick it up on clearance and just play through those levels, then you might actually have fun.

Hey, those Oracle guys really dropped the ball when we gave them several billion dollars. I bet now that we've gotten them to agree to support future projects for nothing that they'll do a MUCH better job.

As it turns out, Die Antwoord is not breaking up. It turns out that Daryl Keating is just a shitty reporter, and then the rest of the industry decided to run with the story rather than fact check.

i think most of the hate for this game is completely unfounded. It's easily one of the best survival games, period. Tweak your graphics options, you CAN run this game well.

Problem is, running well does not do anything to solve the myriad of other problems with game balance, world geometry, janky PvP (once free - now not), janky building interface, and endless server lag issues.

Instead of polishing the turd, they just keep sprinkling more corn on it. And now the corn costs an extra $20.

So yet again we see the real problem are the CC companies and the payment processors/banks, not G2A. And if the fucking devs/pubs weren't so greedy and trying to screw some people over with regional pricing places like G2A wouldn't even exist. They're not the problem here.

Riiiight. The indie with the $3 game is really gouging people with that regional pricing. And the company that isn't properly validating that the keys being sold were legally obtained, is not.

No, I think YOU are actually the real problem here.

So is this pvp or pve? I see Coop on the site, but you can never tell these days, the way some developers lie. I can deal with public pve servers, which require agreement to duel. But I'm sure they hell not interested in a gankfest.

Pseudo PVP. You can battle other players, but the instant you play on a public server it just becomes an endless cycle of 'wait until the other guy logs off, then gank him'.

I'm glad they finally finished it. I look forward to playing it once modders go through and systematically remove all the changes that made it stop being fun.

Considering how unceremoniously they dumped multiplayer and online support for the original Sword of the Stars (the one that people actually used to play), I'm amazed they took even this step with one of the earlier bastard stepchildren.

"Developer says Activision had Valve pull its game from Steam over allegedly stolen Call of Duty guns."

More like:

"Shitty development house with a history of stolen assets generates publicity for failed title to generate sympathy sales for other failed products during Steam Sale."

Lest we forget. Same company.

The last one was a fun game to play through when it hit the $10 discount bin, I am sure this one will be the same.

Remember six months ago when Palmer Lucky wrote:

"If customers buy a game from us, I don't care if they mod it to run on whatever they want. As I have said a million times (and counter to the current circlejerk), our goal is not to profit by locking people to only our hardware - if it was, why in the world would we be supporting GearVR and talking with other headset makers? The software we create through Oculus Studios (using a mix of internal and external developers) are exclusive to the Oculus platform, not the Rift itself."?

Apparently, neither does he.

Fallout Shelter. The game which helps you curb any potential gameplay addiction by implementing a 100% save game corruption rate. Wait, what, that's not a feature? Well, screw fixing it, just pile in some more content and microtransactions.
