There's a certain joy I get, knowing Blue will find this thread tomorrow morning as apart of his next update, and thinking "those assholes..."

I'm actually a little worried that snap-map is a poor replacement for true mod support.

http://www.pcgamer.com/doom-will-not-get-mod-support-in-addition-to-snapmap/

I don't disagree with that. I guess I feel/hope the positives outweigh the negatives? As someone that doesn't do multi much (I know, this is doom, what am I thinking?), snapmap seems like a godsend for SP content.


Ventura wrote on May 12, 2016, 20:48:
Objectively, the game's a bargain. Outside of multiplayer (which I won't comment about because I'll never touch it), it's not a purchase I regret in the slightest, and I know what I'm going to be doing this weekend.

This is exactly what I hoping for...

Yeah, the video above and remembering that they were doing the brilliant snapmap has kind of gotten me interested now, whereas before I had basically zero interest.

I was the exact same way - until Ventura mentioned it the other day, I'd totally written the game off. But with snapmap and the AI director optionally spawning things, it looks sounds like we're only limited by peoples imaginations...

Prince death: Paisley Park being searched by police.

Prince's Paisley Park Pilfered for Pills by Police.


I think my machine is close to 5-6 years old, and while I've upgraded the video card, I'm at a real crossroads. I just loathe win10 with a passion, and can't see building a huge rig with it while I also do most of my gaming on the ps4 any more...

The fun is gone, I guess. I think, if pressed, I might go with something just running steamOS and hope whatever killer game that runs like shit on the ps4 will have a linux port...

Kickstarters have a dismal record. I am constantly amazed that people throw money at these projects considering some of the wacky designs.

I think Kickstarter needs to weed out the charlatans.

I would be shocked if they rebuilt lucasarts, that time is long passed. As seph says, they'd much prefer to let someone else assume the risk and heavy lifting, and reap the benefits.

But they can already do that! Publishers. Development studios typically don't have the cash on hand for a 3 year cycle so they partner with a publisher, get cash up front, and deliver to the publisher and they take a cut for financing the work. Really though Disney has so much cash that they shouldn't bother with a publisher. And contracting it out means they are the publisher. The two roles are equivalent in Disney's case. They can either be the publisher who pays a studio up front for development or they can just develop themselves and get the same since they don't have a cash crunch.

Disney is traditionally very cutthroat when it comes to games. Ask the Split/Second folks...

What?! Disney have just demonstrated that they are idiots. Entertainment software is a huge growth sector. If they think they can't make shit-loads of money with it then they just aren't doing it right - the money is there even if they're blind to it.

Edit: Especially with the franchises that Disney owns that can be made into games.

That's kind of the whole point. They'd rather make the free money licensing than having to actually do work and take risk.

LucasFilm/LucasArts thought it was quite well to make games in-house. Contracting out to the proverbial "India call center" I don't believe is the best way to ensure the best quality and therefore longevity of their brand. They should hire in-house, and build up a branch of their operation that rivals their film branches today.

I would be shocked if they rebuilt lucasarts, that time is long passed. As seph says, they'd much prefer to let someone else assume the risk and heavy lifting, and reap the benefits.

Sorry for the folks that lost their jobs.

Also, selfishly, I hope this means Marvel and Star Wars end up in Lego Dimensions.
