Surfer Girl reveals why Lost, the next Splinter Cell game, Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and Far Cry 2 got delayed.
2 funny nice to see Sony has some standards tho hard to believe given some of the major flops on the ps2....
Was really looking forward to far cry 2 tho I knew I wouldn't have the box to run it.. Looks like no one does now lol.
If all that is true, there are going to be some seriously disappointed gamers.
so her so call reason for all this game been delayed is cuzz of been terrible not includein good gameplay...this is dumb
she's been pretty much right about eerything so far...
still hurts to hear about Far cry2 but the demo they showed did look too good to be true.
you mind telling / showing me what she been right on?
She has been about the same level of "right" as any fake fair fortuneteller. "She" keeps her predictions vague enough that some of the more easily manipulated folks pull the random "right" parts out of her "predictions" and believe her.
Yes an insider that is in EVERY single games company around the globe with "internal knowlege" about every single project. Why not call her Nostradamus instead.
Surfer Girl has been right on Far Cry 2 for PS3/360, Double Fine's next game (Brutal Legend), legitimate pre-alpha screenshots of Prince of Persia and Resistance, and probably more...
Regardless, she may very well be posting negative stuff about Ubisoft and smearing their games, because they burned a bridge with her by not supplying her with anymore inside intel/information.
man......i was looking forward to the console version of farcry 2
Nooooooooooooooo.......... Not more delays
seriously. Ask Ps3 fanboys if you dont believe me.
Sorry, but Ubisoft Montreal delivered two fantastic Splinter Cell games with great gameplay and interesting (realistic) storylines. I have complete faith they will deliver on Conviction. If Surfer Girl was talking about Ubisoft Shanghai, whose Splinter Cell games have been more "meh" compared to the other two, she/he might convince more people. They delay games to make them better and that's obvious but to say "Developers just can't seem to include good gameplay in it" is a joke.
"Kingdom of Delayed Product". Ever heard of Silicon Knights?
everyone is entitled to their own opinion but i am highly skeptical of conviction especially after playing assasins creed. If the missions are as repetitive as assasins you can trust it will be overlooked. Was anticipating far cry 2 but game devs should really stop making games that only run smoothly on computers that most of us dnt own. Looking forward to a console version too assuming it looks and plays as good as what they initially showed off. If not...
I can understand being skeptical, since Conviction will be using a similar gameplay style that AC used (social stealth, crowds, etc.). But the thing is they are also very different (or I assume they will be from what I know now). AC was an open-ended sandbox environment and, therefore, needed side-missions. These were repetitive, but they needed something to fill all of that space. Splinter Cell has always been a more linear game, and even though it may be less of one now it will still be Splinter Cell. Not only that, but Splinter Cell has multiplayer to mix things up a bit.
On top of that, Splinter Cell was delayed, unlike Assassins Creed (which probably should have been, even though it had already been delayed multiple times). In the end, you can see that they probably learned something from the response to AC and are making necessary changes. At least, I hope they are.
You know, she called Assassin's Creed a train wreck. Said it was generic, it would basically suck, and the control scheme is just too hard. She also gave this lengthy paragraph about how the game will be so blah that it gives you the impression of staying away from it.
Link to that one: http://softrockhallelujah.b...
Assassin's Creed, at least in my opinion, was worth getting on sale at Gamestop for $10 cheaper. I rented it first, loved it, enjoyed throughly, and purchased it. I fell into the camp of the PA guys. Anyways, I digress.
The point I'm trying to make is this girl/guy/thing has this vendetta and blood-lust for Ubisoft. I don't know what her/him/its deal is because Ubisoft does make some top notch games. I think Splinter Cell will be a great game. I doubt Sony would the first company to go thumbs down on a Lost game given how much Sony is in desperate need for software sales (hardware is doing pretty solid). I would've expect Microsoft to give the thumbs down in order to preserve its track record and mantra of "We have the best games and multi-platform gaming performance".
This girl/guy/thing has been putting up garbage about Ubisoft since about September. She has never been correct about anything. Doesn't anyone recall her "hacking" incident? Are we so quick to forget that she was fortunate to get attacked by a passionate and caring hacker that he/she/it did not reveal all her/his/its contacts to the public? I know I would sure as heck reveal all of it to provide contribute to her credibility.
Bottom line: Splinter Cell will be a solid game. Lost will probably appeal to the niche crown (let's be honest this is not a game for mass appeal). And I doubt that all of the sudden ALL of Ubisoft's games are delayed considering they are all developed by separate teams within the company. You don't see EA delaying all of their games because someone for the team of (let's use) The Simpsons game couldn't make a deadline so ALL of their games are delayed. It is ridiculous. I would expect maybe something like that out of Atari given their situation but not Ubisoft.
Dr. Pepper is right, the king of delays right now is Silicon Knights will Too Human. However, let's throw in 3D Realms too for Duke Nukem Forever ;-)
I'm not calling out anyone: Especially TnS, a contributor I respect.
Wasn't there some debacle where SurferGirl didn't want to see her articles on this site anymore?
idk about surfergirl not wanting it on this site anymore but I sure as hell am sick of seeing this crap still...
What a terrible article.
ps3 is the best
all of the Splinter Cell games are crap but Double Agent was the worst. even the 360 version only has a 84.6% average on gamerankings
Well, if you're going to use gamerankings in your arguement I will use them in mine. Splinter Cell recieved a 92.5% and Chaos Theory recieved a 93.8%. I wouldn't call that "crap".
How does what RIPHDDVD posted relate to Heavenly Sword? LOL.
Fact is, according to reviews, Double Agent wasn't as good as the previous Splinter Cell. I myself prefer MGS over SC any day, but that's off topic, right? Because this is about Splinter Cell. Not about HS or MGS.
your point? i don't care about HS and Double Agent sucked.
the 360's biggest game isn't even HD, it's last gen. LOL! just shows they couldn't push the 360 further, they tapped it loooooool
if it ran at 600p on PS3, then it ran at the same on 360, seeing how both versions are exactly the same. LOL! and there you go, typical 360 homo, bragging about sales numbers, like anyone cares. that doesn't stop Halo from being a mediocre shooter. Microsoft had to pay for good reviews. Halo is a kid's game, and it looks exactly like Power Rangers. no wonder whenever i'm on Xbox Live, all i hear is kids that listen to rap. dumb Americans.
xtards are diguising themselves as PS3 supporters to make them look bad
P A T H E t i C
this thread is the most incoherent, retarded mess I have ever read on this site. Congradulations.
Ubisoft has been horrible lately, at least for the ps3. They have totally abandoned a patch for rainbow 6. The moderators even mock those who complain on their official site....and Assasin's Creed. I've liked some of their stuff in the past but I'm not giving them another dime until they poop out something decent with online play that doesn't make me want to throw the game out the window.
i used to like splinter cell alittle bit back when chaos theory came out but then after that, i never touched it.
in all seriousness...............GAME R TO GAMER(BECAUSE WERE ALL GAMERS AT HEART)
what do you think they can do in the next splinter cell to make the GAMEPLAY GOOD? thats what im wondering.
so people, start throwing out some ideas because it seems hard to do a STEALTH game like that.
what do you think?
or is it gonna have SOME set missions like the old splinter cells?
idk it just seems really hard to do a game like this
LOL @ sony turning down LOST cause it was too crappy. I surprised, cause they would get a bit of $$$ to have the game appear on their console, and such.
"LOL @ sony turning down LOST cause it was too crappy."
I seriously doubt that actually happened; since when has a game being "crappy" kept it off certain platforms, especially when the game is based on a very popular licence and would sell lots of copies just off the name alone?
Surfer Girl is a joke and is one of the reasons why gaming journalism gets no respect.
believe it or not, sony has employees that reject games brought to them because they are crappy. As do all console companies. Some are more picky than others, some aren't picky at all. If something is going to generate too much negative press because it sucks, then to them its not worth having on their console. This said, i think surfer girl is a fake and just hears rumors from friends in the industry...don't we all?
I was actually looking forward to that. Oh well, rental I guess.
So you actually believe that a company like Sony would say something as Juvenile as "no, your game is too boring and has no gameplay, we don't want it on the Playstation 3"?
yes. Games must first be approved.
I know GIJeff, but that's not my point. Do you think Sony could be quoted as saying that (as they are in this article)? Because I believe if they didn't approve of the game it would be worded (very) differently.
I am looking forward to some more terrorisst hunting.
Is anyone actually going to buy "Lost: The Game"?
I thought Sufergirl didn't want her stuff submitted on N4G?
who really cares what "she" wants? Who wants to bet this "chick" is a 350lb dude that lives in his grandmas basement?
Yet Sony allowed Lair to be on the PS3! LMAO!
Wow, and to think EMG had a exclusive preview for Lost game and said some pretty nice things about it. Sony REJECTED it!!!
lol, and they said Sony has a strategy to approve anything and Nintendo is following it! Nintendo better start reject some of those crappy 3rd party games like Target Terror.
As for Splinter Cell C, I had heard some pretty negative stuff about it as well. But I was shocked about the FarCry 2 stuff which had a video demo shown and it didn't look that bad.
I really don't understand how so many people are defending this company after they flat out lied to those who bought rainbow six on the ps3.
