Looks like a bad rip off of Supreme Commander's Naval only portion.

P.S. Supreme Commander is like 8 years old and available today, no need to wait.

News Comments > Notch Backtracks on Psychonauts 2 Support
23. Re: Notch Backtracks on Psychonauts 2 Support Feb 5, 2013, 13:55 McSterls
 
I think they saw Notch made $101 million last year and the costs skyrocketed. How bout not making the game int he Bay area or structuring peoples salaries so that they get less money upfront and a percentage on the back end. There are all sorts of creative ways to bring a project together, it's not like studios aren't collapsing all over the place and developers are letting their people go to a jobless future.

18 million for Psychonauts? Cereal? Every Friday is free coke and hookers at the office or what?

At least he's honest and straightforward about it. He foolishly made a verbal (typed) commitment without realizing exactly what it entailed, and once he was made aware of it, he reneged. An honest mistake many people that suddenly came into money for the first time could make.

Agreed. No one can say Notch is a bad guy for backpedaling. Could Psychonauts 2 even recoup an 18 million investment? I know the first one was a pretty amazing game, but it wasn't a financial success, right?

I just love how you guys make an opinion about graphics made from a video and probably made on the console version. Sarcasticclap

Isn't that the point of them posting videos' to get potential players reactions and influence sales? Maybe we should just have someone tell us what to think and go with that. Also, the voice actor sucks.

Ubisoft agreed to purchase Montreal and South Park

Good luck with that. I'm siding with South Park Studios statement that THQ doesn't have the right to sell the game.

News Comments > Gas Powered Games Layoffs
22. Re: Gas Powered Games Layoffs Jan 19, 2013, 08:57 McSterls
 
After watching the newest Kickstarter video and reading this article I've canceled my pledge for this game. Chris Taylors previous videos for this project all this week were full of enthusiasm - can't say much for someone who then fires their staff because his kickstarter didn't roar to completion like Planetary Annihilation or Oblivions new game (both of which I supported). Taylor gives it less then a week then lets everyone go - sounds like the kind of joker who wouldn't finish this game and keep my money. No thanks.

You just know the early units won't produce smell properly and you will be trying to figure out what the smell is emanating from your PC, or everything will smell the same or smell like chicken.

Do people care about smell in their game? I don't think so...about half the time I turn off background music, so why would I want to smell my food cooking?

News Comments > Steam Hardware
15. Re: Steam Hardware Jan 8, 2013, 12:20 McSterls
 
$499 for the base or $999 for a more powerful version?? Seems way more expensive then either the XBox 720 or PS4. Valve doesn't play to loose, so there is something else going on here. Gabe isn't stupid, and selling one of these would be stupid. Limited usefulness as a PC (Linux is dystopian), and with a limited selection (at the moment) of Big Screen games, this would be a console looser - so I'm saying there is more here then meets the eye.

I'm in.

I have my doubts about the realities of this game being released, but I got excited and donated 60 bucks.....I'd be willing to spend more, but that's what I'm willing to loose (about what I lost on Supreme Commander 2, the new Stronghold, Swords of the Stars2, insert other bad games here)

If he manages to pull this project off, it looks to be an incredible experience and everyone wins.

1. Online shopping is bad for the environment Nov 19, 2012, 12:07 McSterls
 
By that thought what's the difference in carbon footprint, of amazon shipping the goods to their warehouse, then UPS to my home compared to Toys R Us shipping the item through their distribution system to the store, then hundreds of consumers driving to the store in their SUV to pick up an item that may or may not be available then driving to another store, or a third.

Think I'll stick with online shopping and save myself time and frustration.

Standard GTA PR Bullshit for Rockstar. The PC port is probably half done by now and it will come out next year.

Trucks end up being sitting ducks for enemy units that sneak behind your line. Chinooks are way better.
