There is always going to be developer corruption in that game... as long as the company never fires (or really seemingly discipline any of their offending staff members) the game will always be corrupt.
There doesn't seem to be any deterrent for insiders to stop...
Say what? Then how come I've never even heard of these guys? If they didn't thrown in the Lineage II reference, I never woulda figured out who they are. And are they trying to tell us that Lineage II has sold more than Everquest or WOW? I hardly think so.
Your kidding right?...
- Lineage - Lineage II - City of Heroes - Guild Wars
Check out there numbers and try that statement again. True enough, most of Lineage's number are not from the US, but I'm sure the company doesn't care where the numbers/money is coming from.
Well one of the things that many people (including myself) like about WoW over EQ/EQ2 is that I can log in, play, and accomplish something immediately.
The thing that you may forget about is that many people actually have outside lives and don't have the time it REQUIRES to do anything, in games like EQ/EQ2.
This is not to say that EQ/EQ2 is a bad game, but it does explain why WoW has such a large appeal. People can actually PLAY the game AND have a real life.
Nothing like spending 2 days killing rats to go up a single level in EQ... Don't forgot most people only log on for a couple of hours at a time. So if 4 hours of WoW playing accomplishes the same as 10 hours of EQ2 playing, well I'd rather have 4 hours of WoW fun and 6 hours of real life family time.
Basically, I just saying different games for different folks
Is he friggin serious? I mean seriously, why would 'non-gamers' be interested in accessing the material? I mean they are 'non-gamers' hence they have no interest in playing the damn game. So why make a game, that costs millions to make, for people who don't play games (let alone a more 'complex' game like Deus Ex). Solitaire and Tetris are non-gamer games and a hell of a lot cheaper to make...
Game Designer??... I think not (at least not anymore).. maybe he's just getting too old to understand anymore... sad...
<QUOTE> Well, I like both of them. Having both in one studio works for me because I get to have my hand in two different camps. I like the reality basis of Deus Ex because I think it allows normal human beings -- non-gamers -- to access the material a little more easily. So from that perspective I like it because it lets us suck people in to a new and unique kind of gameplay experience. </QUOTE>
>> Ubisoft. "We will never intentionally ship a product that is sure to disappoint our discerning customer base."
Unlike, Ion Storm with Deus Ex 2... Everywhere on the NET people are complaining about how disappointing the game is turning out to be and yet they are still releaseing it (instead of taking it back and fixing it for their discerning customer base).
