Call me crazy, but I even enjoyed WH40k: Space Marine. This looks even better, so I'm gonna keep a close eye on this!

Re: USC cancels video games panel due to lack of women Apr 29, 2016, 20:31

So let me get this straight: Your panel has mostly men, and one woman, game designers, some of the biggest names in the industry coming to talk to your students, after which your students can showcase their work(!) to them. The woman designer cancels due to a scheduling conflict. So, because of this, you cancel the panel. Now your students (presumably some of who are women), who stand to learn from the best of the best in the industry, lose the chance to network with future employers because of the "gender imbalance" on the panel. So the women you teach lose an opportunity of a lifetime, in order to improve the opportunities for women? And you defend this by stating you are "on the right side of history" (from the professor's twitter... which is now private)?

This is easily the stupidest thing I have heard in a while. No wonder women can't get into the game design business. Their teachers are retarded!

I figured this would end up on Kickstarter, not thrilled by that but not going to dismiss it because of that.

Romero's had success and failure, so hopefully he knows how to avoid his mistakes, and keep all his bitches in check.

I think it has a chance.

He may have had both success and failure, but failure is more his style...

Why would you play this when you can just play Overwatch?

You guys should watch this if you're on the fence about this game or don't even know what it is or think Overwatch is just going to stomp it. They aren't even the same game genre.

Cynical Brit Opinion of Battleborn

I didn't even care for the game until I watched this. It actually looks like it could be my next Team Fortress (it's not like team fortress but i sunk 10000 hours in team fortress is what I meant).

OK, I watched the TB preview/review. WTF? I must be getting old. There's so much crap on the screen, I can't even tell what's happening...

Now get off my lawn!

Oh goodie...another rich, entitled prick telling those who actually -do- the work to stop bitching about long hours, poor pay and bad management.

So, the article is St. John saying "you should totally stop complaining that you're working insane hours, and not getting paid overtime for it, or anything at all, for that matter."

No, he's saying that if you don't like working for somebody else in bad conditions for little reward, you should do something about it other than whinge impotently - "I tell these people; quit, go make great games on your own, pursue your passion".

I don't agree with what he says (no, St. John, getting "rich accidentally" isn't an adequate comparison) it's very different from him telling people to shut up and making him more money. Pretty much the direct opposite, in fact.

Finally, someone with some reading comprehension skills!

So, after Alex St. John attempts to restore some sanity to this argument, GamesBeat puts a rebuttal of St. John from the founder of Vambleer right underneath. Ismail is the author of quite a bit of shovelware from a two-man studio. Basically, Ismail works at exactly the sort of indie creative company that St. John says is the most "healthy" for the complainers (and experiences none of the industry issues that come from working at a large firm), and yet he wants to attack St. John for the message!

I guess I shouldn't be surprised. Vambleer is at the forefront of the "I'm a victim, you're a victim" parade. So it makes sense they would be all up in the "this industry isn't fair!" whining. You're right it isn't fair! Try getting press or work and not being a part of the indie in-crowd, Rami. Oh, wait, that hits a little too close to home...

Yeah. It's not bad enough that people want to restrict what you say, now they want to restrict how you look at others. I guess thought control really is the final goal...

This is what happens when you have dev staffs of thousands and need to release the same game every year to keep your mega corp alive. Next it will be Call of Duty is Wonderland or OZ.

I want the gaming industry of 15 years ago back. When game development was a lot slower and the games lasted a lot longer.


It'll never happen. Video games used to be niche products, whether they were on PC or in stand-up machines at the arcade. So they could easily cater to niche game desires. Now they are big business; video games make more money every year than the GNP of Burkina Faso. Console-makers sell at a loss and make up for it by selling millions of copies (or a game only sells a few million copies and is a failure, like the TR reboot /s). No major game studio can risk a niche product (hence the rise of indies, crowdfunding, et al.).

You're longing for a day that can never be again. I'm just hoping that enough tools (Unity3D, CryEngine, Unreal4) and resources get out there for a reasonable enough cost and complexity that indies can afford to make niche games again.

Either that or, when they realized that they couldn't win the court case, the gov't decided to psyops both Apple and the terrorists and said, "That's OK, we've got it." when they actually don't.

It's amazing how creative the PR people can be in trying to make more-of-the-same sound unique and interesting. Maybe a few of these studios should hire the PR folks to design the games; maybe we'll finally get something new.

Oh, wait! They already did put the PR people in charge of game design... and we got Aliens: Colonial Marines. Never mind...

On PC, not so much. Now, me and you might enjoy the voltage porn and having 7 different programs controlling the settings, but most of normal people don`t and I don`t blame them for it.

Sorry, but that's bull. I haven't "tweaked" anything on my desktop for a PC game in years. I put the DVD in (or click "Download"), install, and then click "Play." Then, as if by a miracle, the game... runs.

Folks who babble about needing to tweak settings apparently haven't gamed on a PC since the 90's. Sure, if you want to run some esoteric extreme performance build. But just playing games (at higher fidelity and frame-rate than consoles) requires nothing but a desktop icon...

Hmmm, drumming up new business, eh? I wonder if these weekends are actually expanding the base. It seems to me that anyone interested in space games either is already on board or doesn't trust CR at all. Not sure what this will accomplish...
