Well that's a shame to hear. I figured it wasn't a strong seller, but I had no idea it was that low.

However, much to my relief, I'm glad to hear that it's a loss that Introversion could afford. After skirting bankruptcy once, I was afraid that was the direction they'd be going ahead. So I hope their next game goes better for them.

I admire them for trying something different even if it didn't work out.
Agreed. Introversion is a different kind of studio, and one we'd all be worse off without.

Fair point, yet FF3 (6) and Secret of Mana (Seiken Densetsu 2).

It's a pretty solid lineup on that thing. The Chrono Trigger gambit, curious.

Star Fox 2...that's a thing 20 years later apparently

SNES had way better games than the NES on the whole so the lineup is much more impressive. Earthbound is another supremely good game. Maybe they just didn't want to stick another Square game on there?
Or Square wanted $20 just for the one game...

Agreed. I don't "get it", but clearly a lot of other people are enjoying it.

Yup. It's like Minecraft. My kids keep trying to get me into it but I just watch them and think, "how is this fun?"

You'll never feel so old as when you watch a half dozen tweens play Minecraft on a LAN.
Minecraft I get: building stuff is fun. But these last-man-standing survival games I just don't see the fun in them: they're slow and plodding; I'd rather have a flak cannon and a shock rifle any day of the week.

I'm not a lawyer. Do we get our mods back or not?
Yes. As long as they can't be used for MP, you don't make money from them, and they don't steal assets/characters from other games (including other Rockstar games).

As far as I can tell OpenIV is still closed down because of the cease and desist they received. So, still bad.
At this point I don't know if that's a separate negotiation or if they're just taking their time. But as long as it followed the above (especially the bit about not being usable for MP) they should be fine.

And this is why E3 needs to be press/professionals only.

Want to play games as a member of the public? Go to PAX. There's several of them now.

I don't understand. They haven't even gone to court on appeal for the original judgement yet so how the hell can they be asking for an injunction already? I understand Zenimax's strategy here but I can't see FB budging on this, or even losing the appeal. So this is likely all sound and fury signifying nothing excepted wasted legal fees for Zenimax in the long run.
Shock and awe. Fire everything and hope that either something hits, or the risk of it hitting drives FB to the table.

IMO, it's hard to even take this seriously. 20% royalty? No single company on any tech product in the world is getting a 20% royalty rate. It's absurd to the point of being insulting. That would be $120/Rift.

I'm not so sure it'll be quite that long, IIRC Retro Studios has been working on something we don't know about since they finished their last Donkey Kong. Regardless, I'm hoping they release the Prime Trilogy again (would be the third time, lol) to tide us over until then!
The developer for Prime 4 isn't Retro. Whatever Retro is working on, it's something else entirely.

This is actually the short trailer. The full trailer is much longer, at about a minute-thirty.

2. Re: Johnny Gat Joining Agents of Mayhem Jun 9, 2017, 04:02 ViRGE
 
They're certainly hitting the nostalgia kind of hard, which I'm not sure is a good thing. Still, I have a hard time complaining about Johnny Gat in just about anything; he's SR's most popular character for a reason.

But I'm still not pre-ordering the game.

How long does a mission take in this game? The new campaign is 6 missions. At $40, they'd better be crazy long.
Huh? The campaign is part of the 2.3 patch; it's free.

I had completely forgotten about this game, to the point that I was shocked that it was still in development. Epic announced it 6 years ago; no wonder.

Edit: Oh phooey, I see it's F2P...

I really like PCF. But Bulletstorm and GoW:J have not been stellar works for them. So whatever comes of their collaboration with Sqenix needs to get them back on the right track.

Expand your fighter's journey by purchasing the Tekken 7 Season Pass separately and gain access to stunning additional content

Or wait about a year for it to be patched and rereleased with all the content for half the price.
Good answer!

If this game is any good, then the trailer is not doing it justice. Which is a shame because Artemis is a blast, and this is essentially official Artemis.

The use of VR wands just looks like an impediment. The VR part itself seems interesting, but the game just screams for a keyboard (or a gamepad).

I am. Volition has not let me down yet. And I have a soft spot these days for games that aren't too serious.

What's the tradeoff for client-server, exactly? That it works great and everyone has a smooth match?

Oh wait, cost-benefit analysis. So you ARE trying to save money.

The whole thing is bullshit PR, anyone who knows how computers work know there is no reason not to give players control of servers. Quake and unreal had dedicated servers BUILT into the fucking game. But once game companies realized the average gamer is a fucking moron we got this shit of company controlled servers because the average gamer is grade A fucking tech illiterate.

Quake and Unreal had NO persistent data. Any game with persistent characters CAN'T let people run their own servers. The very first thing that would happen is there'd be "get all legendary gear in 3 seconds!" servers.
Eh, I don't know. You could very easily edit your inventory in Borderlands 2. In a purely PvE game, the only person you can cheat is yourself. With Destiny 2 however, the extra wrinkle is that it has PvP as well...
