News Comments > New John Romero PC Shooter Teased

Can someone explain to me the backstory behind the "John Romero will make you his bitch" comment?

Basically romero and company were bragging they were going to make an awesome game. The "make you his bitch" comment was basically bragging up front before the game had been even made. But the game (daikatana) ended up being on of the biggest game development disasters in gaming history. This is why romero is looked down at by the older generation of gamers.

Also his former co-workers post not so nice things about his lazyness when doom became a success. Carmack and everyone got really rich off doom and once the money came in romero started slacking off because there was no compelling reason to work anymore. AKA he's the type that can only work when forced to and given no options. Carmack and others on the other hand aren't so effected by getting rich, carmack worked on a huge lot of other games even if they were sequels outside of doom. Romero not so much. Carmack and company were pushing 3D video cards forward with quake derived tech.

Came to see assclowns whiteknighting Steam. Left satisfied.

What a cop out. If you have an opinion then voice it otherwise you're just a troll.

The reality is the new generation of gamers/game developers are at retard level, they are going to basically lock down games forever, the masses because they are tech illiterate, newer generations of devs because they don't want to give away control to the game to gamers. AKA limited modding, massive drm, more encryption/denuvo, sandboxing.

The success of "MMO's" (aka the first real drm'd games you nevered owned) rode on the tech dumbness of a generation of gamers who are ok with paying for getting fucked. World of warcraft/everquest sealed the deal, diablo 3, starcraft 2, and The recent release of the division are signs that the end is night. The average gamer buyer is fucking retarded tech illiterate/irrational moron.

News Comments > FINAL FANTASY IX on PC

Was it the draw system? If so, I can completely understand.

The flow of the battles in 8 were pretty shitty and that stupid auto-leveling of enemies. All around by the time FF8 came around the combat system of final fantasy had calcified, basically square is out of ideas when it comes to combat. The best rpg combat system I've seen out of square is final fantasy tactics.

It really comes down to not understanding why combat is boring and not a slog, the whole idea of leveling up/gaining power loot needs to be well designed and participating in battle needs to be interesting, not just going through the motions. A big problem with oldschool RPG's is that weaknesses in the turn based battle system ultimately make the game feel like a drag.

I remember loving grinding monsters in FF1, the point is to make 'grinding' fun and add things besides just combat to the game for the player to do. FF8's best feature was in fact that card game, that the card game was more fun then the main game goes to show how far gaming has gotten away from its roots of just being systems of game mechanics, and instead focusing on story/simulating worlds.

The real issue for me is the fact that the worlds in jrpg's are mostly dead and non interactive, there's no reason to explore or interact with anything.

I got it, it's extremely simple and you'll get bored. The base game has a good foundation but not enough work has been put into the game to make it interesting. No one really has committed to building a space game with lots of interesting things to do sadly.

Well maybe your privacy means nothing to you but it means a lot to some of us.

That game was over a long time ago when people forked out money for MMO's and steam. This gave rise to F2P/always online DRM. Diablo 3 sold 30 million copies. EA just released need for speed with always online drm in it. Almost all AAA games have some form of gangrene crapware either steam or drm related software, only a tiny minority of big budget games don't.

Sad to say it the newer generation is pushing us oldies out since they never grew up on PC gaming in the 90's they don't know what has come before and gullibly eat up whatever companies feed them. Think about Gabe and the valve skyrim paid mods controversy. These fuckers only care about $. What do you think league of legends represents? IT's the biggest fucking scam in all of gaming yet its popular and making mad money. That says the vast majority of people on our planet are tech illiterate morons.

If you paid for skins in that game you don't own, you are a bonafide moron.

Damn I just bought a 980ti. Should I retun it? Although so far it is freaking amazing!

No, the FPS gains won't be that much. Learn about size limits to transistors, processor power has slowed down dramatically since 2006 since it's becoming more costly to shrink transistors and make chips smaller. So that means there is less performance to squeeze out. You'll be set for 4 years at least with a 980. Hell my old 5870 still runs 99% of modern games.

Man...I really wanna pick this up and like it. So much cool looking about it. Then I read real player reviews and it sounds fairly dry to the bone and unfinished.

Who to believe...

Depends, did you think supreme commander 1 was good or bad? I thought supcom 1 was badly designed in that that the units were just hp boxes to hit towards death. Also units lose value/become redundant depending on what map size you are playing on. On big maps you pretty much always go air. The rules of environment (goals on the map/gameboard) and rules during gameplay need a big shake up. I've got notebooks filled with ideas that no one has used over 20 years of RTS's.

I usually go with the negative reviews because they are usually from experienced players. It's too easy to game reviews on the internet for cash. For instance, I thought Twilights princess was pretty bad compared to say darksiders and Zelda games have been getting long in the tooth.

When looking at game reviews, think of the age and era the person is reviewing from. Someone that was born post-2000 isn't going to have a very good grasp on what makes a game quality because that person hasn't played all the games previously.

It's a shame the launch has been so shaky because they nailed the fighting mechanics. (IMO anyway)

Not a shame, no one should be buying an unfinished game based on company promises. The gaming community never learns. Companies want to give you the least viable product for the most money and hope to string you along promising things that will never materialize or will never be built to what was promised.

feels bad man... no excitement at all to bad id died when carmack left waste time on VR.

iD was never really a great fps game maker once other developers got better then them at doing the single player portion of the game. iD was great at making multiplayer and good engines. Rage was just a giant abortion that ended up being unfinished. Sign of the times really, their team size/budget for rage wasn't big enough to really finish the game even and you can tell near the end of the game they pushed it out.

People don't want innovation, they want familiarity. Familiarity is the reason why sports game, Call of Duty, etc sell well.

Sorry to tell you but it wasn't until Call of duty 4 that Call of duty was nothing but a me too FPS. People don't know what they want until someone stumbles upon a formula for success that everyone else tries to ape. Call of duty 4 finally figured out the "game as an action movie formula" that everyone else tries to ape. Note that The wolfenstein game that was released basically copied the cinematic formula pioneered by call of duty 4. Earlier games like half-life didn't have the budget or expertise to pull off the same kinds of experiences call of duty 4 single player gave.

Call of duty was never a juggernaut, before the 4th installment. So saying all the people want is more of the same is disingenuous. Rather people buy whatever companies release because they will buy whatever companies put out to cure their bordeom. The free market is a myth that needs to die, people are creatures of habit and weakness. Gaming is probably one of the greatest examples of market for lemons.

And let's not forget about the biggest dick in tech ever: Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs whole career was just marketing and making technology aesthetically pleasing for the ignorant masses. Calling Jobs a genius is massively far fetched. He made tech like MP3 players a fashion item fad and then could use that money to build real better products. He was a man in the right place at the right time. There were plenty of products better than what apple produced. Apple found quirks in the human brain regarding aesthetics and ignorance of technology and exploited it.

It's the sense of entitlement that's offensive, as if they somehow deserve to be millionaires. These rich suits and multi-millionaire artists make out like they're trying to scrape up rent money. The unmitigated greed of these people is obscene! And all this because of one idiot judge several decades ago who thought that if you work once you should be paid forever for it - so long as you're an "artist".

The rich have been screwing the rest of us with bullshit laws for centuries. It takes an effective propaganda system to blind people to the fact that their society is out to screw them.

Software has been licensed since the beginning.

And that was the fraud, the public has no idea how tech works. Software licensing got traction because the public had no clue and corporations were the ones writing the laws. Games are different in that they are used. So games are taking advantage of bullshit laws that really shouldn't apply to them.

This GOG sale, like the K-Mart blue light special and Steam flash sales are the lowest form of amarketing gimmick. There are no limited quantities of a digital product, just a limited number of ways to sell them.

Problem is if you don't buy any games companies won't get market signals to release DRM free version of their game. Buying from gog at least you can give a signal that you exist.

Get a grip! It's not the same thing. Games were limited in what they could create and show given hardware limitations. Early gamers always dreamed of bigger and better in the same way silent film makers dreamed of talkies in colour.

We dreamed of better of course, but not to the point of replacing video game mechanics and systems with movies like they do nowadays. The modern gaming landscape is a wasteland of hand holding and computer rendered movies.

I certainly didn't imagine gamers would be so dumb to hand over money for online drm back in ye old days or that F2P and microtransactions would become a thing.

Modern gaming is mostly flash little substance with a few gems here and there.

A much better idea would be to fund new games or total re-imaginings of original games but it carries risks and if anything game developers generally seem to be a risk averse, pump and dump money grubbing bunch these days. Nothing like the 90's at all.

Those folks that threw over $10K at Star Citizen? They have zero recourse if the game never moves past beta.

The whole problem wasn't just the incomplete nature of the game, but the fact they went back on easy promises like NO DRM. They had drm right from the get go that was their big plan and they had their spin machine going full blast through early access to hide the fact they knew going in it would be DRM'd. The community uproar was what made them reneg to some degree but it's still chained to that awful server browser shit despite now being playable in 'offline mode'. Modern gaming is a nightmare of needlessly complex bullshit stunts pulled by developers and publishers, just to lock down the fucking game.

The 90's overall were such a better time for videogame fans with level editors and genuine camaraderie between devs and fans, so much so they released open source to the community. Modern game devs/pubs are just pumping and dumping the stupid half of humanity full tilt because they know they are sheep.

I remember all the maps and models for quake and I look at the modern wasteland that is DLC and microtransactions for those stupid bastards who basically gave the go ahead for devs not to release tools as it would interfere with their microtransaction plans.

You see valve whoring themselves out in dota 2 trying to get paid modding so they get a cut of everything. Gaming is such a shit fest because most of mankind is at subhuman levels of intelligence.
