Entertainment industries should follow a couple of simple rules if they want to be profitable:

Make something at least some people want to buy
Make it easy for people to pay you money

Anything that gets in the way of point 2 should be removed. If the people haven't got any money (e.g. kids with no credit card, no pay pal) then they're not customers anyway.

I think that some companies get so upset about the idea of people stealing from them that they forget to just shut up and take our money.
True. Most people bitching about software piracy do this for moral reasons, not for hard evidence that piracy is actually hurting sales. Everyone can do morality, but no one can proove that this is harmful.

I like how people blame UE3 for a lot of things that the developer using the engine has total control over. It's like blaming steel for my car being an ugly shade of yellow.
Maybe. But are there so many devs out there, who dont know how to use this engine without said problems?

I myself turn off most shaders in UE3 games, because i can't stand all this overbright highlights and forced focus depth. Features, which i have no problem with in games, which use other rendering engines.

Who cares who made the maps and why?
Because they suck? And boy, they DO suck! This game reminds of my first Doom maps made with an editor. Just a few rooms filles with lots of enemies. No concept, no design, no thought put in. This game is not worth anything at all, not even for free. I want my money back, because for five bucks i could have had a sixpack and chips

If you were a fan of the original painkiller, pick this up for 5 bucks.
No, please dont!

I am a great fan of Painkiller and its addon. I found Overdose not that good, but enough entertaining. But Ressurection was bad and this rippoff just to make a few bucks for a dying publisher ...
I picked this up. It's terrible. It's stupid. It's boring. It's not fun. It's a waste of five good bucks. Avoid!

This is no Age of Empires, Microsoft.
It's a very dumbed down and family friendly, casual version of one of the Greatest RTS of All Times. Technically, MS has every right to call this game "Age of Empires", but we all know, what this is ... misleading advertisement! The game itself might be not that bad, if you take it for what it is, but calling it "Age of Empires" is still false and misleading advertisement.

Please please please don't let this be in third-person. I think I would die a little inside.
Hey, it's stealthy, so it HAS to have Third Person View AND a cover system. Probably, it will have Auto-Heal and "more action, less thinking" gameplay too.

Simply assume the worst, drop all hope and be surprised, when the final game does NOT suck

Because a pretty solid game sold way less than it should have and needed massive support to get any kind of legs and even then didn't do what it should have.
That's what you think, that's what i think. But why, why should Epic have ANY interest in making an attractive shooter for the PC? Why? They make enough money from the console crowd and licensing the UT engine, that they can afford to learn nothing at all. There is no incentive to learn anything from their former mistakes.

It sounds like they learned nothing from the UT3 fiasco.
Why should they?

Yeah, but between Ritual and id, I'd consider him a decent suit, and not the standard variety.
It was just a cheap joke, i dont know him. So i wish him all the best

Actually in Doom 3 they always spawned in closets and shit. Ones that were invisible moments before, sure, but walls opened or doors opened and the enemies popped out from behind them. It was actually exactly like Doom 1 and 2, though people pretend the games were very different.
Have you ever played any Doom game or have you a very weak memory? There was NO spawning or "monster popping" in Doom 1 and 2. And in Doom 3, some monsters were behind walls, some were just standing around, while other teleported in the moment you triggered a script. I really dont know to what Doom games you refer

i think he was referring to in particular Doom3.

which i agree, had pretty much zero multiplayer. HL, not much more.
As said before, "not much" or "pretty much zero" is not the same as "none".

Make the singleplayer longer than 4 hours next time... and also not suck.
People play these kind of games for singleplayer? Really? Isn't that not the usual "Michael Bay script parade for people, who dont like to play, but also dont want to watch TV, so the devs make this kind of interactive sequence, where you only simulate actual shooter gameplay, but dont require the player to actually play"?

I LOVE these scripted SP campaigns. A shooter for people who just want to shoot at everything without the need for actually hitting something. Makes me giggle everytime i "play" this

Then replace exclusive with all your keywords. Indies is where PC devs treat PC games well, unfortunately, something that's becoming far too rare on the mainstream gaming scene.
That's true

If you want PC-exclusive awesome games, go indie.
I dont care for this "exclusive" stuff. If a 360 owner wants to have fun with Diablo 3 on his console, then he should have fun.

I only want a proper PC game, not some lazy, crappy port, not this bullshit the majors churned out in the last 5 years.

Unlike Doom 3 which was truly just one corridor after another with no memorable moments between.
One. The one memorable moment, when the imp was introduced. That was creepy and satisfying and atmospheric. The rest of the game was one boring monster spawn after another. At some point (i think Hell), i simply god-moded and finished the game in one take just to get it finally done. The addon however was a much, much better game in terms of more interesting combat situations, it had actually a "flow". Not quite easy, but not unfair like the main game.

Besides, those platforms are so locked down that developing for them is too much of an unattractive/expensive prospect.
There was an interview with some guys from Relic some time ago. They had been asked, why Relic is still making games exclusiv for the PC, while all other stduios left the plattform, making console games. They answered, that they welcome every studio switching to console games, leaving the PC market for them AND that Relic can produce games for less money because of the higher costs of console developement, so that they dont have to rely on preferably high sales from the console plattforms. They did just fine. And looking at all those console studios, EA, Activision and other publishers closed, because game sales were too low for the costs of producing them ...

Be small, be effective, be in control. Dont sell out unless you will make THAT MUCH money by selling out, that you dont have to work anymore
