News Comments > Activision Buys King Digital; Releases Q3 Financials
9. Re: Activision Buys King Digital; Releases Q3 Financials Nov 3, 2015, 11:23 PacoTaco
 
"Goddamn, can you fucking believe 5.9B for candy crush????

just imagine for a moment, if they spent that on new IPs, you could pay 5900 developers $100k a year EACH for 10 years. I'm pretty sure you could build something more impressive than candy crush with that army. But when has Acti-Bliz gambled on anything that doesn't have a proven multi-billion dollar revenue stream lately?

Just like Valve, who literally haven't had an original thought since the original Half-Life (count em: CounterStrike, Team Fortress, Portal, Left4Dead, Dota2, ALL based off of mods which Valve bought out).

The lesson here is clear: don't take chances. Companies who actually employ developers like EA and Ubisoft take chances, and lots of their games are shit. But the public has spoken, they'd rather have a money-grubbing corp like Valve or Acti-Bliz spoon-feed them dumbed-down test-audience-approved, over-marketed, lowest-common-denominator pieces of shovelware."


I agree with everything you are saying including Ubisoft taking more chances but EA come on, they buy every IP and destroy most of them in the process and the devs along with them.


Even everything related to BattleField was done by an outside developer named DICE and bought by EA all based on Code Name Eagle.

Can anyone do the math on how much Candy needs to be sold to break even on this deal? Must be 1000 clones of Candy Crush at this point and done mostly by terrible devs.

Art looks pretty good to me, the detail level is higher then anything I have seen yet, but same old game but I like that game so should be a good way to kill a month or two.

Pretty sad video, id hasn't made a good game since Quake3. Compare this to Unreal 4 videos or COD Black Ops videos or best yet Fallout and I am like why would even put this out to the public. I sold my id fanboy card when Carmack left.

News Comments > Call of Duty: Black Ops III Trailers; New Mode Revealed
6. Re: Call of Duty: Black Ops III Trailers; New Mode Revealed Oct 17, 2015, 18:23 PacoTaco
 
Looks like the same standard game play formula for a COD game. Tech = Magic.

If you have to tune the game play for 1-4 players and some of those players being controlled by bots if you don't have human co-op partners it will feel either really easy or hard.

I am guessing it will be really easy and that you finish the campaign in under 8 hours, and then Treyarch wants you to replay this mode over and over again like an MMO or RPG, sort of like Destiny getting forced into an FPS product.

Its interesting attempt but I have no interest in Co-Op console FPS with RPG elements.

The PC MP Beta which I played felt like all the levels were designed for console players which makes sense since that is where all the money is but it means its a dumbed down FPS compared to old hardcare PC products. They also seem to be including the CS:GO (paint your gun) and LoL (the banning system) I have no interest in this since the PC player base will be so small.

Looks like a pretty game with no soul.

News Comments > Boss Key Reveals LawBreakers

none of the characters blink even when the visor is closing, not even a flutter, just dead eyes, dead faces, none seem to change expression either at as they are traveling. Also agree on the VO, and one of the lines is from the AniMatrix "and it was good" I heard rumors that Cliff was propped up for 15 years at Epic, seems like the rumor was true because I expected more from him. Also the BossKey logo is just shit. I am being harsh because first impressions are everything when it comes to building a brand.

Game looks terrible, so blurry even on best settings. F you "its the beta though'. Game looks worse than ghosts. I see they added CTF back in, but no one was playing, something like 90% were playing camp death match. Such a waste.

I got fooled on the last one, that AW isn't advanced, it is AIR Warfare, just a dumb gimmick. Now in this one you can run on walls forever AND air jump. Done.

I have personally witnessed the game on all platforms including PC, and while the shaders were tuned for the Ps4 the game was amazing looking the detail level on the levels is 16x what could be done on the Ps3 or Xbox360. Even with the untuned shaders it was eye candy everywhere. The artists at Treyarch are some of the best in the industry.

I am not talking about the game play just the visuals, so saying it was muddy might be your machine. I have the beta right now running on EGA 580GTX which is an older card then what I was seeing with a 980GTX and the game looks great on both cards.

Comparing this to AW one thing to note is that AW was developed for the previous generation consoles ps3/360 so it might have been 4 to 6x on the ps4 and xbone, this version was developed with no regard for previous generation consoles it contains content 16x over previous gen. Trust me. :-)

News Comments > Activision Blizzard Financials; WoW at 5.6M Subs

COD down, WOW down, I am sure Bobby has finger on the trigger, LET THE BLOOD FLOW...

If BO3 goes the way of Ghosts or even stays at the level of AW I think we see some studio "rearrangement" Good news is Heart Stone and HOTS, I think they will keep growing.

Regardless you dont need as many FPS studios if you are only releasing 1 title every 4 years. Treyarach and SledgeHammer grow a bit and they shut down IW? Customers don't need a new COD every year with all the expansions. Customers want great games.

The game look really pretty and truly next generation the detail on the levels is breath taking if you are an artist that loves that type of stuff. I am so I do.

The game play has been the same as Quake run around a maze and shoot dudes, if you are bored of that then no point in playing or buying the product.

News Comments > Skyforge Trailer

Well looks like they are using the Crytek engine, and all the Characters look like they were outsourced from China or India to me. Its why you have a great looking environment with less then spectacular characters on top.

The VO on the trailer goes on and on.

The shot selection is bad to tell the story.

In some places the character models aren't creating shadows on the ground in some they are.

The director didn't dont show off the characters that do look good if they have any with close up's even during the fighting.

The player hero models look boring to play from what they are showing.

I am surprised this trailer made it out of the building, shows the game poorly.

That is my professional short opinion.

News Comments > EA COO Leaves for Zynga
11. Re: EA COO Leaves for Zynga Apr 27, 2011, 11:56 PacoTaco
 
News that wasn't reported was that some of leads of the Dead Space 2 left for Zynga right after the DS2 shipped they didn't even wait to get laid off or bonuses.

Schappert is one the good Exec's at EA that actually knew how to build games, was working toward fixing the place. Now EA is down another guy that had actually built products.

Since Larry Probst retired and Bing Gordon (I always looked at Bing as the heart of EA) left to go to Kliner Perkins who help fund Zynga, EA has lost its way in a lot of respects, don't forget Mattrick who formed EA C and who runs MS games, has been gone during this EA's decline he was the heir apparent to become the CEO. but the went with Rigaltello.

Wouldn't be surprised if entire exec team gets fired if they lose money overall again this year. I still have some hope that EA can turn it around.

CCP tried to put a FPS into the PC version for a few years, tossed away an engine they created that would have destroyed the PC game, so they got Unreal3 and decided to make it a separate product on the console.

The connection to the PC MMO the specifics to how players will interact with each other from console to PC is not known to the public.

What that movie represents is pure marketing material to generate interest, they had nothing really to show at fanfast or any changes to Eve so they make a nice movie about what they hope to achieve.
