News Comments > Chris Taylor Leaves Wargaming

SupCom 2 was not disastrous. Maybe to you, but there are many out there who really like the game.

It was a financial disaster for Square enix, and overall a bad sequel, it had lower average score then supcom. So the consensus is supcom 2 is worse then the first and its expansion.

Supcom 2 is not a bad game, but it is a bad supreme commander sequel. Supcom 2 comes off like it should have been its own game or a spin off, but a mainline sequel.

Right after supcom 2 chris taylors development team collapsed and was picked up by wargaming, aka square enix didn't want chris taylor to do supcom 3. That right there tells you a lot about how well supcom 2 did.

Chris taylor is a tragic figure he seems to get stuck with shitty events. First THQ went under and basically ruined supcom (aka underfunded it) then he goes on to make the disastrous supcom 2 which didn't do well. Then he desperately tries to make a MOBA via "wildman" kickstarter and it fails, then Wargaming comes in to hire his team, then he leaves wargaming.

That's got to be shitty all around for someone who tried their best to remain and independent developer.

the amount of content and work for a FREE TO PLAY game is staggering. kudos to DE and their dedication

The game began as mostly crap, basically the next generation of new young kids fed money to the game so it could develop. The game ultimately still devolves into grinding if you want to get anywhere, having to grind for their fake currency via runs.

Whoever said it wasn't P2W is not exactly correct, if you want to get anywhere in a decent amount of time you need to pay to skip grinding missions. You need to grind for certain amount of time to get frames to do missions with, without those frames later missions can be annoying.

Pffft it's gearbox's own fault for trying to release a MOBA in a crowded market. Like jesus there are so many free to play multiplayer games, why would any young kid want to pay for a 2nd tier game?

The whole concept behind battleborn was retarded from the get go, whoever greenlighted the game should have been shot to begin with.

A lot of the internet seems rather salty over this and I am not sure why. Seems like a neat little something classic coming soon and a small pack to come at a later date.

Putting classic diablo inside diablo 3 engine is a bad idea. Not to mention the online drm. Diablo 3 was the most hated diablo because it took everything people like about it and up ended it.

People have a problem because the graphics/art direction in diablo 3 is just too different from the prior two, D3 feels like a spin off game and not a true sequel to diablo.

The time between diablo 2 and 3 was almost a decade or more, that's just too long to do a proper sequel when the original teams are long gone. A different set of people did diablo 3 and you can tell. The expansion sold maybe a million and something... That's not a lot when diablo 3 sold 30 million units. 30 million units! And like 1.5 mill expansion. That pretty much sums up peoples disappointment with the game when your expansion doesn't even do 1/10 the sales.

This kind of shit won't encourage piracy at all. No siree.

Heaven forbid people living in poor repressed regimes have a little escapism.

Well this wouldn't be happening if the average gamer wasn't so fucking retarded, we have DRM out the wazoo because the vast majority of game buyers are dumb as a bag of hammers. MMO's were the beginning of the end of game ownership sadly, the dumb half of humanity that pumped money into them paved the way for the normalisation of server locked games. Ultima online, EQ paved the way for steam, which paved the way for further encroachment on our rights.

Not sure where you are getting that from, and those links to EA's help site have posts from Myanmar citizens who have also lost access to Origin.

It's in the post in the Reddit link, here's a quote:

"I live in Myanmar, but I am not from Myanmar."

That'll teach you to reside in Mynanmar, you Myanmarians!!

Odd timing, after the second DDoS attack(last night) in the past week or so on Origin or their DNS, DYN. I highly doubt that the source of most of that traffic was from outside the continental US.

Otherwise, Myanmar Origin customers need to start emailing EA en masse that those sanctions no longer exist.

It will be extremely unfair if they are blocked permanently and cannot get refunds for past purchases; good luck, Myanmar.

Forget weed, re-nationalizing the country's natural resources would do it right there. I've always been a heavy proponent of that. As far as I'm concerned, a country's resources belong to its people, not foreign multi-national corporations.

Unfortunately whenever countries try to help their people Americans try to destabilise and overthrow their government. I have to wonder what agencies are watching or trying to influence the politics of iceland.

Kewl. I've had this on my wishlist for a while an have been hemming and hawing about getting it or not.

If you've played diablo you've played this game. It's really diablo /w less freedom. It is bizarrely linear and the fact that melee attacks can hit people from a distance is bizarre in and of itself but required I guess because you are basically sliding along a fixed path and most likely trying to attack normally would be frustrating.

People read read and trust media reviews? I take them them with a grain of salt. I prefer to read user reviews and watch user videos instead. And I'm not talking about the big You Tubers....more of the "little people" and make a decision for myself. Besides, with Steam's refund policy, at least I can make an educated decision trying it out myself, deciding if I want to refund the purchase.

THe best thing to do is always look for average to below average scores, people who don't rate games highly are people who are honest, people who rate games highly are either 1) young/inexperienced or 2) stupid/oblivious/fanboys.

I think most intelligent people almost exclusively read negative reviews to see if there are major problems with the game. Positive reviews are little more than "yeah I agree its great" which isn't helpful.

This is why negative reviews have effect on sales, aka when there are genuine issues with the game you want to avoid it.

Shadow Warrior 2 is pretty damned good.

If shadow warrior 2 was called something else, it would be an ok game. But as a shadow warrior sequel it feels pretty flat.

I can't understand why they'd try to copy borderlands, the last thing shadow warrior needed was diablo style loot.

They made the game hub based to make it easier develop for themselves but the single player lacks cohesion. It felt at times like a mod and not a game because you'd backtrack into the same levels for sidequests. The levels are more like arenas and not true levels.

Basically their idea for multiplayer and co-op harmed the single player aspect which was what made the original SW so good.

Space games in non-space engines are hard. Like, REALLY hard. Getting Unreal Engine 4 to tolerate impulse-controlled unconstrained three-axis rotation was a pain in the ass, and even then it's temperamental. Getting it to tolerate controls from anything remotely close to an AI buddy/opponent, which has serious trouble with the idea of an impulse-controlled input system, rather than a direct-control input system, is what got me to drop the idea until I have time to fully learn UE4's eccentric system for modelling sensor input, decision-making, and output. And, really, you can't even put out an intro video announcing your project without working AI and fluid controls.

Well the old descent team is doing overload, it's too bad ex-star citizen with Descent underground stole the crowdfunding thunder the could have gone to the 'true' descent developers.

To get around the law, aka technically "the government" isn't doing it then it isn't wrong. They got lawyers that work on this shit 24/7.

What? There are already dozens of Rogue-like (that term is really overused and misused by the way) games out there already that have permanent death.


Not to mention most of the new generation RPGs offer hardcore modes with limited saves, etc.

Oh, I see, this guy is a console peasant, who only plays AAA titles.

*Cue PC master race rants.

Things are nowhere near where they once were back in ye old videogame days of the 8, 16 bit and 32 bit eras. Post PS1 there was an orgy of extremely easy cinematic games that we really haven't recovered from. Sure there are lots of REALLY BAD challenging games, but we're talking about the AAA space (the 'real games people care about). There have been only a handful of decent indie games like Faster than light.

Where's games like Freespace 2 for instance?

Stretch goals are generally marketing to encourage more money but you should always assume that games take a long time and are difficult to develop if the stretch goals seem like they are over-promising they probably are, most kickstarters spread themselves too thin. Even the successful ones.

I think I am very pro-consumer, but I don't think that would be fair.

I'm sorry to tell you but you are in no position to talk about fairness, the last 20 year we've seen fat king gabe curtail gamers rights through forcing DRM into half-life and CS when no one wanted it to trojan horse himself to a billion dollar empire based on mass ignorance and stupidity of the average gamer. As an old fuck who watched the rise of the steam, mmo/drm crime syndicate, the corporate world is the furthest thing from "fair" and you have no rights before our corporate overlords. Where are our dedicated servers and level editors for AAA games we used to get? They've been massively curtailed because of greed and corrupt practices of game companies. Microtransactions, f2p, mmo's are the biggest scams in all of gaming because the average gamer is such a retard.

You're clueless to how corrupt the world really is and how your rights have been erased by big media and big gaming since they own the government lock stock and barrel. We're talking about billion dollar game companies, they aren't pan handling in the street. Like they need any more bullshit laws privileging themselves and fucking the rest of us. Most games are already filled with corporate malware and fundamentally broken in that the server software is not released, so their multiplayer functionality is held hostage by companies that can be turned off at any time.

If anything we need more rights not less.
