Square Enix have issued a cease and desist order to an independent, amateur developer who released a free game based on Carmageddon.
Stopping indy devs from making better games than they can, even when they're not doing anything with them...
They have done the same to this http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... FU SQUARE-ENIX
let the hate towards Square-enix grow... goood... goood... (emperor laughter)
Sonic Fan Remix shut down?
A way to weed out the competition
We(fans) were anticipating Chrono Resurrection release. It was brilliant, perfect Chrono Trigger transition to 3D. Imagine our broken hearts when we heard about C&D. Square-Enix's bad, mkay?
Jesus people stop supporting this company. This is the definition of a company that cares about nothing other than money. Their fans make 0 difference to them.
At first, I was like "Come on, SqEnix, you know you're not releasing another Carmageddon. It's been dead for a while. Let these guys do their thing and don't be a pain in the butt about it." But then, I was like "Oh, but if Twisted Metal sells, there will be copycat franchises coming out of the woodwork... Carmageddon could play the Medal of Honor to Twisted Metal's Modern Warfare." And then, I was like "I'm very sad right now."
If twisted metal sells very well, you can expect a new Carmageddon from SE, but also a new Vigilante 8 from Activision (despite all the hate Activision has been getting for a while, a new Vigilante 8 would be great news to me) and maybe even the revival of Road Rash by EA. I do hope someday arcade vehicle combat comes back, as I miss these days...
not even then. They don't have a studio capable of creating a proper successor to one of the best online multiplayer AND single player non-linear racing experiences. Pity.
Squaresoft, those were good times. Now they are approaching Activision in terms of suck-i-ness, bad games and milked-to-death franchises. Just hope they don't also ruin Eidos.
aha road rash.. haha oh the good old days.. even Carmageddon was a lot of fun I'm surprised my rents let me play it lol I used to just win races by taking them out I never actually raced lol often times I would just drive around the maps taking out all the pedestrians lol
Carmageddon was an awesome game back in the day, I never really likef the direction the other went gameplay wise, part two was good too, but the third one was just horrible. I never knew Square-enix owned the rights, I always thought Interplay, or SCi were the owners. Regardless who ever owns it, they are doing nothing with the series, and I would to see a reincarnation of the game, even if it was done by someone else.
How pathetic Square Enix. If you care so much about that game why not make a new one?
believe it or not they'd probably find as much contraversy as ever trying to release it. That and the only studio that could do it justice is Criterion and those guys don't even want to make another Burnout which was at the time it got good a super vanilla version of Carmageddon without all the senseless murder... :)
Same thing they did to the incredible looking "Chrono Resurrection".
Has chrono resurrection ever been leaked? It was almost right close to being finished wasnt it?
