News Comments > Lawbreakers Launches to Great Reviews, Poor Sales

The market right now is absolutely saturated with multiplayer focused shooters. With single player games you can get away with that, as people play for a few weeks then play something else. Most people don't play more than one or two multiplayer games at a time, and they tend to play them for longer periods before switching.

Full open-world PvP.

No thanks. I've seen too many games with it ruined by roving troll squads. I have better things to do with my time.

It is MMOish, with persistent elements. I don't see a game like that ever being run purely client side.

More Spellforce is a good thing, but please, please modernize the interface this time. SF2 was extremely clunky and unintuitive, and the inability to rebind keys was a royal pain.

I wonder how this works with things like four packs.

G2A is shady but no one offers anything better.

I wouldn't have to look hard to find something better than a key bought with stolen credit card number that gets revoked.

This one isn't complicated. One of the demands is that they stop charging for 'insurance' that their games are legitimate.

They still charge for the insurance.

What an odd decision. Minecraft is well past its prime, and is a game which is already played almost entirely with free mods and skins.

There just doesn't seem to be a market here.

Then you need to go look up 'hollow victory.' If Blizzard benefits, it isn't hollow, and I've already described how Blizzard benefits.

It also helps build up legal precedent, which is something that can be very much worth it in the future. Blizzard probably considers this victory to be an investment.

It isn't a hollow victory, it is a show of force. Blizzard being willing to go to such lengths and costs to win a victory over a company they have no control over means that they will be willing to go just as far for any other company.

It will make any company or individual not willing to relocate internationally consider carefully before messing with Blizzard's products. It won't stop cheats or hacks, but it will stop some cheats and hacks.

And even Dune II built off of concepts in other games that came before it.

You do realize that if you change your D&D setting, the admins won't come by and ban you for hacking, right?

Don't like the 4e changes? No problem. They never happened.

I haven't played enough NMS to really talk about how innovative the ideas were, but I will say this: Innovation doesn't mean fun, or polished, and it can fail to live up to promises. An awful game can have great new ideas.

Hell, more than one great game has come about because of someone polishing up the idea that someone else had but couldn't make work.

Given the revelation at the end of BL2, I don't think multiple planets is exactly unexpected. In fact, it was pretty much a given.

The Twitch Launcher is apparently Twitch's Steam/Origin/etc analog.

You get to keep the game after the listed dates. Those are just the download dates.

It took some searching, but here is the link you want: Twitch blog

/edit - and I didn't actually have to install it. I just went to the Twitch site through the link they gave, signed in, hovered over the banner and clicked 'Claim Offer', which added it to my account should I ever decide to install the launcher.

It may just be burnout. They signed on to be game designers, but ended up in a company that hasn't really been designing games. They may just be taking a break before deciding what to do next.

Battlefield already did Vietnam, and it wasn't exactly their best selling title. They may always give it another whirl, of course.

As far as good Vietnam shooters go, try Vietcong (for single player.) It's old and sometimes rough around the edges, but it was a very memorable game.

Not everything that isn't dark and grim is for children. Few children would have understood the game's themes. I actually enjoyed playing a game with a few colors for a change.

Life is dark enough. Entertainment has my permission to tone it down from time to time.
