And what is UT2k#? It's the same game with better graphics than the last one and one more game mode. Pot. Kettle.
LOL! If it is "better graphics," then it's not recycled content now is it? If UT2007 contained nothing more than the identical art and media assets of UT2004, then yes Marc's statement would be hypocritical. As for the gameplay, UT2004 was certainly different in many aspects from UT and UT2003 much to the chagrin of many players, and I bet that UT2007 will be significantly different in a number of ways from UT2004.
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.
You need to learn how to read. Game sequels are NOT "episodic content" even though the subject matter of the game may be episodic or derivative. UT2007 will certainly NOT be episodic content of UT2004 in the way that HL2:EP1 is of Half Life 2.This comment was edited on Jul 12, 22:37.
