Mark Rein Knocks Intel, Episodes

Epic's Mark Rein Intel is killing PC Gaming on Joystiq reflects the opinion the Epic VP expressed to the Develop Conference in Brighton that moves by Intel, in particular the promotion of integrated graphics on the motherboard, are hurting PC gaming. Epic VP: Intel is killing PC gaming! Ars Not really is an article offering an alternate opinion, which is probably not the last editorial that will be written on this topic. During his keynote address Rein also had an episode about episodic gaming, calling it "a broken business." According to the report, Rein's remarks met with some heckling from the audience, accusing him of being a "dinosaur" and "self-serving."

Riley said that I'm an imbecile. OH NO

Look, Rein is complaining that episodic content will be "inevitably be using a lot of recycled content, walking through the same environments and shooting the same enemies with the same weapons.”

And what is UT2k#? It's the same game with better graphics than the last one and one more game mode. Pot. Kettle.

And UT2k3/UT2k4/UT2k7 isn't episodic and anyone who thinks so is an imbecile? That's funny, because Mark Rein thinks it is.

Rein acknowledged that the game industry already has an episodic model through game sequels, such as Madden, Zelda and Final Fantasy. He said these work because they are full-price and backed by marketing.




edit: I'll probably buy ut2k7 so don't accuse me of being a valve fanboy.
