The only "pro" gaming voip out there is Mumble, nothing else comes even close, fact.
When it comes to real time low latency, clarity, usability, and security, nothing beats Mumble.

if you had turned it into an RPG, it would have done much better.
yeah, they should have added character progression, weapon unlocks, a dash of DLC and a smattering of pavlovian-response gaming mechanics would have made this a blockbuster hit.
lol, i'm only half joking, you gotta admit that it's pretty funny reading this thread that are all being mostly negative towards these devs for making something that doesn't "fit in" with current gaming tropes.
then every other thread is getting mad at games that only try to fit in with current gaming tropes. it's lose-lose.
and has one of you PLAYED this fucking game? no. but apparently you're all experts on how much it sucks, and how they deserved to fail. from what I've read this game got GOOD reviews from the press, no? how heartless are you fucks?
Nobody's criticizing the game itself. We're criticizing the developer's rant about the game's failure. It makes them sound like they feel entitled to success. Other developers have made similar rants when their games failed and all were met with equal criticism. Tale of Tales made a game that appeals to a very small audience and it sold as any reasonable person would expect it to.
if you read what you just quoted me saying, i was pretty clear:
"it's pretty funny reading this thread that are all being mostly negative towards these devs for making something that doesn't "fit in" with current gaming tropes"
The ire has been almost exclusively towards it being an obviously bad game. Then they get good reviews, sell nothing, go bankrupt, and are sad about it. People are saying that it deserved to fail because it's bad, therefore being sad about going bankrupt is "over the line" and worthy of ridicule.
Almost every post is saying how they're too "hipster", or they're too "niche" in their game design, etc etc. you don't see the irony in this? how many times have you read the words "it's shit, they just cater to the lowest common denominator" on this forum... in the last week?
Now this title gets lampooned for doing exactly the opposite. I swear some of you need to start your own game development studios, as you obviously know exactly what the perfect game is, and apparently no one else "gets it".
Has anyone here (aside from Tipsy McStagger who posted his comment while I was writing this) actually called it a bad game? People have said that the premise doesn't appeal to them but that's not the same as calling it a bad game. I have no interest in truck sims but the Euro Truck Simulator series is apparently good if you like the genre. Sunset might be a fantastic game but it doesn't really matter if nobody likes the premise.
Playing as a housekeeper during a civil war in the 70's holds limited appeal. The sales of the game prove as much. There's nothing wrong with making a game with limited appeal but if you're going to do that, you shouldn't expect great sales. Tale of Tales apparently expected great sales and when they didn't get that, they shut down and wrote an angry rant. That's what people are criticizing.
Games like CoD and AC are criticized for lack of innovation because they get pumped out on an annual basis with superficial changes and no real resolution of each series' fundamental flaws. The key difference between that and Sunset is that critics find the basic premise of CoD and AC appealing. They just don't find the gameplay appealing. Apparently very few people find the premise of Sunset appealing so the gameplay is irrelevant.

Will take a "wait-and-read-the-initial-reviews" approach to this one. I am hopefully optimistic.

I seriously doubt that. You seem to forget get that they bought out Gas Powered Games. And I happen to know they are working on this game too.

After how bad 6 was they should be begging people to try the beta not asking people to pay for it.
For some reason I see the whole planet just sitting there and waiting for these fucks to actually make another good Heroes game. They simply can't seem to do it. Fumble after fumble.

And this is how you fight piracy. No mandatory online shit, no DRM shit, just provide a great service and people will have incentive to buy it.
Not that EA or Ubisoft will ever understand this.

So I take it that this is a "buy it" game? I looked at it a couple of times, but haven't been sure on grabbing it.

That's pretty devastating for Borderlands and Gearbox
I'd call Duke Nukem Forever devastating, I think Burch is replaceable.
Videogame writing isn't exactly the pinnacle of the profession.

Yeah, I have no idea why everyone here is giving him such praise. I must be following a different Burch on twitter, I guess.

I wish I liked this game. To me it is everything Guild Wars was meant to NOT be. They sold out to NCSoft to chase WOW.

That's a very good point that I overlooked. HOTS has actual different MAPS with different objectives and everything. It's great. A popular MOBA that is more 'I am not thinking much'-friendly, still has interesting characters and attractive female models, and is generally easygoing? That's why I like it. Nice and slick.
Will still do League now and then though, because League is its own thing.

Stardock how about you release a game that isn't a buggy mess for once before talking about 3 new games ok?

Lol Parker, he has made millions and millions from this latest Mega platform - when he was recently in court, it was shown he had made something like over 1 million a week since the FBI closed down his megaupload.
May not be as good as he'd hoped, but the fact is that he can make money.
But thats ok, call him fat and dumb and running a retarded service, I'm sure it hurts him heaps.
Thats right Cutter, you go get them bad hackers and make an example of them. What do you want to do to them? Hanging, lynching or drawn and quatered? Or now about making them clean all the toilets at Microsoft Xbox headquaters and Sony Playstation headquaters for 15 years because now dear someone show up vonrablitys (errors) in their networks that can take them down. It's not thier fault that their networks can be hacked, it's the hackers fault totally for doing it.
Btw Lizard Squad sound like scum which makes me think they have been infortated (gotten into) like the FBI did to lolsec (turned a person on the inside, then got him to get others to do crimes to catch them. i.e. set them up, althought they where hackers to start with) Very scummy, like what I'd expect form the US goverment.

The roll out and support of this game was out of step with the modern multiplayer game.
Should've skipped the publisher, gone free to play with a market around items and events, and continually released new content both minor and major. Basically it should have been CS:GO in all regards but gameplay.
The small amount of players surrounded by AI bots didn't bother me and the map design around this player count was excellent... but part of these hypothetical ongoing updates should have increased the player count with releases of new maps.

It's hard to take a award show seriously when it's possible for something that's been out for less then month to win. And useless categories like most anticipated..
That's what I was thinking. Nintendo is developer of the year? Destiny is the best online experience? lol. DA:I certainly sounds like a decent game, but many people are saying it still fell short of the hype, and it is merely "pretty good". That doesn't sound like GotY material to me.
Sounds more like an AAA developer paying someone to be GotY.
