NotOneOfUs wrote on Feb 22, 2017, 01:25:Why? DD was started to make things differently in the biziness and they DO things differently. Especially their marketing is doing things VERY differently. Lightyears away from the boring hyperbole of the majors, DD always made funny, witty and ... well, honest marketing campaigns for their games. No nonsense with optimized screenshots, faked gameplay trailers and such things.
Perplexing to see someone from Digital Devolver of all places get caught up in political bullshit fever.

Tell me again about how one of the richest corporations in the industry is doing it wrong.

Ok. So who the fuck paid for this Rhombus of Ruin VR shit? Double Fine or the people who kickstarted/figged Psychonauts 2?

Some people even saved up over a dozen tokens (due to gold being very easy to get until this last expansion).
Gold sellers and gold farmers will have a field day
This is more of.. keeping the money flowing within their own games. Now you can play WoW, or are kept more "interested" in playing WoW, to earn more gold, to get a token to redeem for more WoW time, to play and make more gold, to get a token to redeem for "free" (lol) Overwatch boxes.

Didn't they poor a bunch of money into Homefront sequel? The one that failed big time, probably more so than the original.

Don't fake reviews as a developer.
That should be obvious.

Rigs wrote on Jan 13, 2017, 03:53:Not in THAT bundle, true. But the whole winter sale contains way more than the games you find from that link and i thought you meant the entire sales campaign
Call of Duty? There's no CoD in that bundle. World At War is on sale, but not part of the bundle that shows from that link in the story.
jdreyer wrote on Jan 13, 2017, 00:37:You have never heard of Call of Duty?
Stranger than Dirt Showdown for free is the fact that I haven't heard of a single game in that sale...
Burrito of Peace wrote on Jan 3, 2017, 22:50:And please let someone else do it than Nightdive Studios. They were soooo close to finally sort out the rights jungle, only to piss of Warner with a frivolous trademark registration for NOLF. They thought it would speed up the process, forcing Warner to finally make a descision. Well, Warner made a descision: They said "No, you will not get anything!".
A new NOLF would be great!
NetHead wrote on Dec 21, 2016, 07:39:That's right. At first they wanted to make some kind of dinosaur game like Jurrasic Park on the basis of their "Dinosaur Island" tech demo, which featured mainly massive vegetation rendering. Ubisoft stepped in as a major financing partner and steered the direction to a more traditional shooter.
Their engine tech has always been impressive, Far Cry eventually came out of a tech demo for their engine (think they got some funding from Nvidia and turned it into a game, memory's really foggy but there's probably still some old videos floating around regarding it).
NetHead wrote on Dec 20, 2016, 18:08:Crytek made good money with defense contracting. Simulators for the german army and the arms industry. I know someone who quit his job at Crytek for that specific reason. He said, that he wanted to make shooters and not murder simulations. Which sounds funny at first, but it is the destinction between making a game that people can have fun with and making a simulation to help people to actually better kill other people for realz.
I vaguely remember them opening way more studios than made sense. Now that they're closing "five studios in five countries" the first thing that came to mind was where the hell are all the games. The only recent one I remember is The Climb which has a tiny potential customer base.

Last time they were in deep shit, there was actually a rumor about a "mysterious benefactor" bailing them out. Many people believed that person to be CR. So this might be a repeat if he does in fact rescue them (again).
