OXM considers the L.A. Noire/Team Bondi work ethic scandal, and asks whether it's ever worth punishing your staff to deliver a fantastic game.
'til death do they part with their game.
Developers need to go 30 light years further than what they are going now. We still have the chosen few that are GREAT but for the most part the rest of the Devs are COOKIE CUTTER!
We, as gamers, want great games, but I see no reason to place excessive strain on the dev team. Maybe the publishers should rethink issuing deadlines. Give the devs as much time as they need, and the games might come slower, but they'll be 100% finished. No more deadlines=no more crunch time=considerably fewer bugs + significantly better games.
My opinion wont be popular and I don't care. Devs, if you think you are overworked and under- appreciated do what the rest of the world has to. Suck it up or figh to change it. Please stop looking for sympathy from fans. Be adults about it instead of helpless children. People act as if there is a gun to their heads. BS wanna work better hours? Change jobs. Truth is they think they should be special because they make games that millions play. I don't hear cries of better treatment for factory workers who make and ship consoles.
I have heard several cries for better treatment for factory workers who make and ship consoles...
As far as the end of the garden is for an agoraphobic person.
I will never buy nothing from Team Bondi again. Maybe rent if game is good at best.
"Our game's worth £50" far...
LA is hardly a great game.
Well it's my goty. I think it's a great game. I'm one of those people who love cinematic experiences in games. I could see why some people were turned off by it, but I loved every minute of it.
i disliked it because the actors tried too hard to give away what emotion they were supposed to be portraying during an interrogation. and because they game was too rinse and repeat. i like cinematic experiences too...just not pure cinematics that i sit and watch. max payne was a cinematic experience...this game is GTA without the freedom to play how you want. i admit, the writing is good, and the story was certainly interesting. but as a GAME...it's just nothing amazing. as far as it being your goty...i guess that's fine, except for the fact that most of the AAA titles haven't even hit shelves yet. up til now, i'm almost inclined to agree with you, there just haven't been many good games. portal 2 is really its only competition thus far. *i know some ppl will say killzone 3 is on the list - to which i reply... lul*
Well since you blocked me might as well post my reply here :-D "Maybe because Gears was supposed to have original come out earlier in the year? "they are coming out less than 2 months apart" Whats your point? Alot of games get most of their pre orders a month or two before release. Learn before you speak."
As far as Deus Ex.
They should sell their souls if necessary....
