Jade Raymond gave us new information about I Am Alive title from Ubisoft.
That's not a sign of trouble...
The original developer (Darkworks) dropped this smelly turd off at Ubisoft Shanghai. We'll see what they were able to salvage.
Well, they dont even want to spend money promoting and packing this game. It sure does not smell good! PS: If the game sucks as much as the translation from google on this website it will be a turd.
Not so "alive" after all. Forgive my pun, hehe. :D
digital only, http://lolcat.com/images/lo...
I'm sorry but what is wrong with picking up an unfinished game and giving it a shot? Just because it wasn't going well with one team means the idea is a scrub? Give it a chance. Jade Raymond is not a hack, even though Ubisoft whored her out pretty good. We don't even know what her game really is right now. Maybe its really cool. And since when is a digital download synonymous with second-rate? This is 2011 people try and have some standards. DD games can be very innovative and can provide a good value.
digital-only = fail = no buy
@captain-obvious So all of the games released on Steam, PSN, Wiiware and XBLA are all fail too, huh?
I was a little interested in this game but hearing that it's digital download only killed off all interest.
@Commander_TK no but i saw this game as a full 60$ game with a long story line but this = limitation so thats what im trying to say
Yeah games like Battlefield 1943 Fat Princess etc are great little cheap games with no story or anything. Pick up and play games. But a game that looks to be based around an intriguing story is releasing as a PSN game? Definitely a no go.
@captain-obvious You got a point. This does look bad. But not all full price download-only games suck. Look at Warhawk or the recently released ME2. But this is Ubisoft we're talking about, so chances are it may not be good. We're gonna have to wait and see.
The best Tomb Raider game this gen is a digital-only title as well. I don't see what you're worried about?
Disappointing... This game was very intriguing but sadly I don't buy digital downloads. The fact that not much has been seen and a different developer is handling it now isn't that promising either. Sad face. :'(
my face when infamous mass effect 2 tomb raider underworld lbp are all digital download all i see here are idiots being angry about things they know nothing about
I'd rather Ubisoft release this via digital than for us to never get the game. As a big fan of Disaster report I can't wait till this drops. Added to the list of games..who cares if it doent get a huge release..especially if it's a gem Evil
Digital only puts me right off. If it's a pile of shit, I can't get a refund or sell it on for something worth my cash.
When's the release date? 2 months after it will be $30 anyway. I'll get it discounted, $60 is too much for digital release where no one has to pay packaging, disc pressing and shipping and I don't get a savings.
Went DL-only and has a vague release date....yeah, that's not a good sign.
well i am bit afraid of that it is a bad sign
I was hoping big game. Looks like i was wrong.
Aaaah!! Gees! Thats just retarded! Was so psyched about this title. This sucks major donkey bits!
i would have to play a demo first to make a choice to say if its worth picking up or not
Why complain about it being DL-only? It'll probably be a shit game either way. At least now you're paying like $15 for it instead of $60. Unless they charge full-price for the DL, like Mass Effect 2 and GoW Collection. In which case, even bigger failure.
Regardless of what they charge, though it'll probably be $60, few people are going to want to waste the 6~7GB of space on their HDD. Especially the average person with a console. People with a Xbox Arcade SKU wont be able to at all.
Ouch! thats a bit of a let down that it's download only :(. I'll be getting it though, it looked good.
My OCD prevents me from buying anything digital, I need a hardcopy. Which I guess is good because I never pirate anything, but bad because I can't get this :(
Wow, what was the last time i saw any info on this game?
i think it was back in 2008 with announcement trailer on e3
I was wondering what was going on with this one.
dude I dont even care anymore it looked so awesome when it was first anounced
it looked awesome when it was announced because they showed a cgi trailer :D
What i mean was that the concept looked promising
Been a while since anything was heard about this game. It didnt sound all that interesting back then but for some reason, it being a dl title makes it a bit more appealing :/
quite the opposite
Digital only....what a let down I was really looking forward to this game, I don't really like downloading games, more of a space issue. I like to keep my space for other things
"Other things"? You sly dog, you. XD
Oh, don't you start acting so high and mighty. We've all got our uses for the extra space...:D
you would think as modern gamers DD would seem to be the next logical step but it rather seems to feel the equal to straight to dvd movies or to me it does. kind of like when i watch a movie trailer that looks appealing and really interesting and at the end it says in IMAX and in 3d....I always seem to groan and loose interest
spot on about the straight to DVD movies. I'll go slightly off topic with the IMAX/3D thing - if the movie is SHOT with 3D cameras - they have promise and can be cool. If they are shot in 2D, and post-production edited to add the visual 3D effects - they are mostly junk.
Ill wait to see how the game turns out before i judge it.
You're on the wrong site then lol
LOL!! +bubs good one xD
This download only sucks...I would spend less than 10-20 min driving to the nearest mall and buying this game(depends on traffic in my area) which is much better that to wait 1-2hour plus to download(depends on internet service)..This download only shit is sucks.... >:(
Especially for people who have bandwidth caps; luckily I have a 50 Meg cable connection with no limit
Guess I won't be getting this...
What are you, GameStop's CEO? Mommy won't lend you her credit card? What's wrong with DLC all of a sudden?
They is nothing wrong with DLC but when a game comes out it supposed to have the option of buy CD version at ur local mall and not download only!!!! Sometimes it takes me 2-3 hours to download demos(bcuz my internet service is sometimes good and sometimes bad)..In that 2-3 hours i would have completed the first few levels of the game.
DLC is one thing but a WHOLE GAME? I wouldn't pay full retail for a digital only. Then you're stuck with it too; no trading it in when you're done.
I like to own physical copies of my games. What is wrong with that?
What, you've never bought stuff off Steam, XBA or PSN? Guys, I doubt it's gonna be "ME2-size" if they're gonna go all digital. @Antz DLC = downloadable content, doesn't mean just demos and expansions you know.. @Kewl None are so old as those who have outlived enthusiasm.
How old are you, MagicAccent? Your comment is immature.
@ Magic I'm well aware and I have bought products off Steam and XBL. All great games that I knew I'd always go back to. This one...don't see this having the addictive replay power of Peggle and Geometry Wars. I love that you sidestepped my trade-in arguement.
I love that you think I did. I too prefer physical over digital, though I don't ever trade in games myself, but I agree that it could be a turn off for some people. As for replay value there is not enough known about the game to make that any such assumptions yet, at least for me.
At least it's still being released, I can't wait to see the game in action.
agreed, people dont even know anything about the game and its already being bashed for being download only. it isnt a bad thing. hopefully the game is as good as it looked :D
If theres a demo I'll play that first, otherwise I'll wait till PSN+ gets the free version
PSN+ wont get the "free version" of a full sized retail game - unless they rework the entire story to make it a PSN/Arcade type game and strip it of all the promising stuff.
Digital download=No buy
Well, this was unexpected. With cuts, it'll probably end up being something like an HD version of 2003's 'Disaster Report'. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
I actually had fun with that game.
My interest level was at about 200%. Now I don't care. Such a let down, this game looked like it was gonna be pretty awesome.
So...where's the release date?
I was looking for that as well.
What the fuck Ubisoft? I was extermeley intrested in this game!!! It reminded me of Desaster report and Raw danger both were awesome games. At least they had the balls to bring it out on disc let alone in North america. I really dont like having digital copies of games on my system but for this i make an exception i guess...
How disappointing. I'm still interested in the game but this is obviously a sign that the final product will be a shadow what the developers originally intended. Also, I don't see a release date in the link.
Wow that's sad, I was anticipating this game.
i would like to see some actual gameplay this has potential, could be like that hydrophobia game or not.
Aww man I was really looking forward to this one, after all these years all they can do is a downloadable game?
What's that ? NGP exclusive? sweet !
