I agree! Why make such photo realistic demons and then have them drop colorful iconized goodies that kick you right out of the immersion? Why make the gameplay so obvious you-enter-a-combat-arena now? I played a few old Doom 1 and 2 levels recently and some were much more complicated and creative!
In level design, there is a difference between creating an arena and creating a somewhat believable setting, where baddies are hanging out and you just stumble upon them.

Doom 3 was a boring arena, its addon presented monsters in believable setting, where you don't had the impression all enemies were just waiting in tiny cupboards for you to come by. Doom 4 is a little bit in the middle. They try to make a "real" mars installation, but too often it degenerates in a simple arena fight.

What's the last Call of Duty game that had single-player DLC as opposed to entirely multiplayer-focused DLC? I honestly can't remember one at all (except I guess the expansions for the original CoD games which weren't really classed as DLC at the time).
There was never ever any SP DLC for this series.

How on earth do you run out of money when you have $150 million budget? Let alone so out of money that you need a second loan from bankers?
Short answer: You don't. DS is just up for his usual "LOOK AT ME! I WANT TO BE RELEVANT!".

15 dollars? LOLOLOL
No.
Yeah. It's a bit much. But like these Nova missions for SC2 i wait for a sale. Which Blizzard does more often like in the past, where you had to fork over 30 bucks on Battle.net for WC3 or D2 with addon.

... pricing model(30% fee on sales) ...
This i dont get.

30% may seem much, but Steam offers a developer exposure to a GIANT, WORLDWIDE customer base, which is only achievable with a marketing budget even the majors can afford often. If ever.

And considering the (g)olden days, where dev's got only a fixed sum and all revenue after release went straight to the publisher, 30% from the revenue, when selling digital "goods" with generation costs around effin zero, is nothing. NOTHING!

That's what I mean, the series doesn't have an issue, the production team does. So they should put the production team on hold, not the series.
They put the series on hold ... because right now they dont have another team capable of managing/creating a big AAA RPG with the required quality.

Why would you put the whole series on hold? The problem is not with the series, it's a problem with one game that was made poorly. These exec's are so reactionary.
Are they? MEA commercial performance seemed not to meet expectations, so someone is to blame. Looking at MEA, it's clearly the developement process. This game has problems, more than usual.

There are rumours of a troubled developement process, of major changes very late in the developement. Bioware Montreal seemed not to be good enough as an AAA lead studio.

So upper management has to find a solution to this problem and until that time, ME's developement is put on hold. Not cancelled for all eternity, but put on hold until all project management issues are sorted out. Because Core-Bioware has already enough to do, they cant just slide in a third AAA project.

Refunds increase revenue, not vice versa.
I know. But tell that to paranoid nerds in charge of sometimes big companies, who have no knowledge of retail, of customer behaviour or economic dependencies.

But since the world hasnt ended after Valve finally offered refunds ... may be some of them learned a valuable lesson.

Creston wrote on May 2, 2017, 21:26:
Another thing to note is that Dishonored 2 was developed on Arkane's own Void engine, while Prey was made using CryEngine 3.

And CLEARLY you'd know CryEngine 3 better than your own engine, ergo, Latin, better results for Prey? Confused
I dont get, why they left the UDK used for Dishonored 1 for an own engine, which is abandoned for the next project with *surprise* a new engine with a well documented lack of proper dev support.

Why?

Understandable

Of course, that's not to say that all trips to the USA go down like this.. or one would hope.
I visit relatives on a regular basis and can say NOTHING positive about the TSA employees. Worst of the worst! How are they trained? Are they trained at all? Everytime they give me the feeling that foreigners should stay at home. Not because they are xenophobic or racist. Which some of them clearly are. Because most of them are lazy fucks who are annoyed with everything resembling work!

Where do you get these people? Why are they employed for a job where one has to deal with people from other nations?

"They" do want, so what was the reason for his bad experience? The vacation itself? Entry formalities? Some TSA shithead having a bad day (well, they actually do have only bad days)?
