Developer says there will be no sequel, and no DLC because of a very peculiar reason. TGR isn't buying it.
No sequel or DLC :(
= Not cheating the gamers.
Well it is based of the life of someone so I don't see how DLC or a sequel can fit in without making them look greedy.
Read the article and you might have found a few suggestions.
I agree that some games need no sequel but if it sells well; a sequel we will get or prequel.
It isn't even released yet, and already they're making comments that cast aspersions on the quality of the finished product. Sabotaging their own game with negative PR...not terribly smart, is it?
I did read the article but again that goes back to the greed element,
I would rather play the demo first... i hope it doesnt turn out to be like another Too Human. But then again im not into that chick gunning thing... it's just so fake... faker than aliens. If you ever watch, that movie of a chick killing a dude... then you'll understand where im coming from.
they said they wont make a sequel cause it is based on real world events/people. so to me it makes sense to only do one game, esp since it would be hard to just guess what these real ppl may have done after the games story ends. I dont think this should be any reason to shun the game or anything else. How about we thank the devs for not planning on a sequel before the first game even hits the shelves. These days there are too many games made that are just utter crap and just pushed out to make money. I would rather have one quality hit than have 1 hit and then 3 sequels that only make you wish for the real thing. And please give me a break, just 5 or so years ago we had no DLC so i think we can do without this time.
well at least they are being honest
In this day in age, it's hard to put a lot of money into a game and then not want to use it as a launching pad for a sequel... Even though it isn't what they are saying, it makes me weary that the game probably sucks...
Maybe rather than a sequel or DLC, Blend will simply make a different game using the same engine and gameplay mechanics.
I agree. If the game makes enough money then they will second guess their stance on a sequel. That being said, it is nice that they are being respectful to the historical aspects of the story (even though they have clearly glammed it up a bit).
I know what happened.Its one of the last few 360 flops.All developers recognize this and are jumping ship before the Microsoft ship sinks to the bottom to join Acclaim,Zune and New Coke
I though most asian people were smart but your just plain stupid.
"Sequels" are not the only way, they could also do prequels, to explain what happened before the story (cf Bioshock and the rumored story of Bioshock 2) or also a spiritual sequel, in a different time, with different characters but somehow related by the characters, the places or the events.
No biggie. It's not like there's a lot of hype drummed up for this one. We have our fill of WW2 related games already so I can't see myself mourning over the decision prematurely. All that's left is to hope it plays well, but isn't so damn addictive that I have to have a sequel. That would hurt.
Unless they explicitly plan for it (a la MGS, Gears, Mass Effect), I like to see more original IPs and fewer rehashed sequels (*coff, Halo, coff*).
The three examples you used are no better than Halo when it comes to sequals... Halo was planned to have a three part story arc...
Looks like your facts are wrong, Halo was always supposed to be a multi part game.
Yeah but only three... We have Halo: ODSTUVWXYZ and Halo: Command and Conquer with MSFT promise for more of anything Halo. I've think we've seen the end of Metal Gear, and the same will be with ME and Gears.
It seems strange that first off this was coming to PS3 and PC too which got drooppped and now they're saying they don't plan any sequels or DLC? Maybe I'm missing something but, to me, it does seem like they have problems somehwhere and it's run into the dev team. I was pretty up for this as well (though as it's now 360 only I won't be able to play it and I'm not bothered enough to borrow one)when I first heard about it but we've had the same screen shots for over a year and it's pretty near release which worries me. Lets just hope it turns out OK and that dropping the other two versions was just a personnel constraint and not real signs that they're in trouble.
I KNEW it!!! Boobs not big enough. US gamers demand rock-hard Triple-F boobs in a tiny bikini, obviously the natural female look, otherwise NO SALE!!!
wow! the game sucks does it... i didnt know it was out yet...so how do you know it sucks? you seem to have played it...please enlighten me on it
Not every game needs dlc
Come on it's far simpler than that , they probably already know the game stinks or wont work that well in sales , so they aint planning anything ... They are probably even "happy" to be done with it .
@hdesroses Why dont you back up your statement ho. Thats what I thought, too much of a coward to even respond.
