IGN - "It’s been a few years where we’ve only got sequels of sequels of sequels of sequels."
true that. i dont finish any of my games anymore.
But the gameplay looks almost identical to Bioshock. It even has the gold highlight around items of interest.
"People are Tired of “the Same Thing Over and Over”" said not one single COD fan, ever.
glad someone noticed..
Sorry arkane , I'm boycotting Bethesda products because they don't treat consumers fair.
Boycotting makes no difference when your just the minority...instead, when I personally boycott, I buy games used. That way the publisher doesnt get squat from me,. Yet I can still play it. If it has an online pass, then get game used after 2 months so u can buy the online pass and it still comes up to less than a new version. I did this with RE 5, and will do ot with RE 6 ( my gf likes the co-op mode), and other games. But I always buy mew if it's a quality game publisher like Konami, Atlus, Sony, Take 2, etc. Crap/Greedy companies like Capcom, Activision, EA, etc get the "used" treatment
That's a good idea +
Well done... boycott a new IP made by a great set of people that actually looks great.. Why not just boycott the company at its source and not buy the buggy pieces of crap that they put out?
I am looking forward to this game myself. It seems to be good and something different. I also interested in XCOM. Never played a turn based type game like that.
I really wan this game but bethesda being the publishers concern me
publishers dont produce the games they just print the discs and get it in the shops..
Publishers do add and remove stuff from games. Anyone that hates EA and Capcom will tell you that.
That's not it at all.
Some people are tired of that for sure, but sequels wouldn't be the big business they are if millions upon millions of people weren't buying these games over and over again.
Doesn't matter if it sells millions, the problem is oversaturation due to other companies abandoning their once creatve franchises, to turn them into clones of a select few top seller games. Most of those games fall into a niche of being mindless, arcade-like, shooters. Like the JRPG era before it, the current yearly flux of western shooters will need to innovate, or else risk dying out. They may sell millions now, but remember that even Final Fantasy games used to excite fans. But not anymore. Example: Millions of morons watch Jersey Shore and Soap Opera's, but that doesn't mean they're good for the progression of TV entertainment. So when people watch that crap in large numbers, EVERY tv producer wants to copy it too. That of course is bad because not everyone wants every show to be turned into scripted "reality" tv shows/jersey shore (even jersey shore fans want variety in other shows). So is the same with games. COD (for example) might be the best selling games, but what pisses off non-fans AND fans alike, is the fact that almost EVERY publisher thinks they will sell their game if they turn it into a COD clone...which is false, because COD fans already own COD (thus no need for other games to assimilate (especially if they already were not arcade style shooters to begin with), and those who dislike COD already don't want their favorite games to go the whole arcade shooter route either. Sadly, even Far Cry 3's multiplayer is a shameless COD clone, something thaet has disgusted fans of FC2's already established style of MP. So is the problem with games like COD, Gears, Halo, God of War, etc that pump out yearly releases that dont innovate, while other company's decide to copy the formula onto their games....causing an oversaturation. To end: It's not the games or even their sales that are the problem (apparently, since people buy it anyway)--it's the other companies like Capcom, EA, etc who try to copy the formula of other games in hopes of turning out a buck. What they fail to see is that a Gears of War fan has no interest in getting knock offs like RE 6 or Dead Space 3 when they already own Gears. I'd hate it too if every game played exactly the same. This is sadly becoming a reality with each new sequal. Hopefully new IP's will allow developers to take chances, if publishers will just get out of their way.
Which is why I try to only buy one game per franchise.
Dishonored Dev: People are Tired of “the Same Thing Over and Over” Huh?! hahaha, " but thats exactly!! what Dishonored is, lmao, geez. A collaboration of different aspects & game mechanics, mechanisms, from past shooters, all the way down even the Art , as in Half Life 1& 2ish rip offs, this game introduces NOTHING new to the shooter genre...???, imo, very hypocritical. I still firmly stand by my view point, that Dishonoured, is more hype than good. The lore, the characters, gameplay..??, im just not impressed....been in this genre since its beggining, its inception almost(doom 1/pc). played all the greats & good, mediocre etc, shooters like delta force series/pc , counter strike/pc, system shock/pc, to the console greats...Golden Eye/nintendo64, etc .. played the twitch shooters like Unreal, Quake series, to story driven shooters like half-life, halo etc, Aliens vs Predator/(PC original), pretty much all of them at some point or another, Ive eaten, slepted the Shooter Genre(minus COD, ugh!! lol)....all different types of shooters, Theif, Deus Ex/pc originals, .....AND!!!, like I said, Dishonored is dishonourable, simple, its not a great game, maybe not even good....with shooters like Bioshock: infinite , Metro: 2033 last light etc, being postponed to next year, the INDUSTRY is pushing this "mediocre" piece of garbage shooter, & of course with the "new school" shooter fans, w/o a real "frame of reference", are buying into the hype. lol But Hey!, its your $60 , spend it however u like, got no problem with "freedom of choice", ...just sayn, i think more gamers who buy this game will be disappointed than satisfied.
It's a bioshock rip off anyway. Did you see the killzone 3 style jet packs? RIIIP OFF Plus I think Pete Hines lies and this IS the same buggy engine.
