Rewards for skill and strategy? So more killstreak-levels then? YAWN......
So everyone's basically moving back to the World Wars again. Oh goody. Its not like we've already had those games more than a decade ago.
So its basically MotoGP 2016/Valentino Rossi:The Game with updated skins and liveries? Are these people even trying anymore?
AC3 and FC4? Hmm.... not the most decorated list of work. But lets see how he does when not under Ubisoft's shackles.
I got fed up with zombies after Left 4 Dead 1. Fighting zombies in a game or watching them on TV felt like those annoying grinding quests that you are forced to do to level up on World of Warcraft that all feel exactly the same. I never thought there could be anything I'm more bored of than vampires after the whole Twilight shitfest, but along came zombies.
If that's the case, then get ready for Anita Sarkeesian and her fellow crones to jump at another chance to earn a few more "exclusive interview" money about how women in games look too hot and not butch enough or some bullsh!t like that. Oh joy. /s
I can understand Flight Simulators, Train Simulators and even Truck Simulators to an extent. But PC building simulator? LOL. What's next? Sleeping simulator?
Damn. Going for a fixed sum rather than percentage share? Ouch.
Selling even the movie/TV rights? Poor guy. Talk about not having faith in your own work.
Doubt it. He didn't like the way they "progressed" from the end of his books. So he probably won't be too eager to accept them as canon to his world.
@Alexious - Read them. I read all 7 and they're generally good reads. The first couple of books definitely are great. The series dragged a bit during the 4th, 5th and 6th books, IMO. But overall its a very good series.
That's what we were telling people since MW2. However, no one listened or wanted to listen. So its no surprise that this is getting worse and worse. Even back then, anybody with a working brain could see this type of shit being pulled by Activision down the line.
I can still remember these morons' words - "Oh you're just hating because its a huge franchise and they are a big company."
Any "fanbase" this stupid deserves to b...
When big companies know they can make tons of money by "remastering" their older games and/or creating sequels that don't innovate in any way other than continuing the same storyline, there isn't really an incentive for them to work hard on something a lot of gamers overlook in favor of visuals and interactive cut-scenes.
Well they should.
However, they won't. Not in a million years. They'd lose too much revenue and people are still all too willing to pay full price annually even if they know they'd get pretty much the same d@mn game(with minor updates) every time.
They'll just lazily point towards the dictionary definition, which we all know is BS, especially in recent years. Real world actions speak louder than words in a dictionary.
For example, the official dictionary entry of North Korea is "Democratic People's Republic of Korea". But we all know its not even close to that.
DA2 felt like a game some indie developer made(obviously poorly) to copy Dragon Age Origins, not a direct sequel by Bioware itself. It sucks so bad, its not even debatable.
"It's idiots trying to censor everyone and thing they don't like that are the problem."
Isn't that the whole point of 'social justice' though? A vocal and influential group within a community gets to dictate what is appropriate for all the others. Isn't that where censorship comes from and why many are rejecting it nowadays?
I'm going to assume you'd probably love it if the government raised the minimum wage by a cool 200%? Make those greedy, filthy rich bastards pay the people what they owed them, right?
Oh look. Identity politics in the gaming industry. Bet that never happened before......
Its just the lesbians that are "indestructible". Because, y'know, lesbians dying in a video game is a catastrophe to humanity. Y'know, as opposed to the hundreds of characters of possibly straight or unmentioned sexual orientation that you get to kill in almost every game, because that is totally OKAY. In fact, if it is encouraged by our friendly neighborhood rug-muchers from the lovely community over at Tumblr.
All hail Fem-Hitler.
Long live Femi...
When you say "confront racism", do you mean trying to make gamers feel guilty and sorry for a certain race based on the color of their skin or do you mean "racism" as in actual discrimination towards ANY of the races? I'm asking because the former doesn't solve any problems for anybody, just more headlines for the left-controlled media.
