You lot do realise who Colin Moriarty is right?
He's a talentless hack who doesn't know what he's talking about.
The writing is on the wall guys.
Yes it is. A game company is refusing to acknowledge their involvement in conflict minerals that are used for their consoles and other forms of gadgetry.
Some Western games get away with a lot. Binary Domain for instance was unfairly panned in my view because so many journalists wrote it off as merely a Gears of War clone without actually examining any of it's merits.
Utter nonsense. ME3 took out a central character and forced fans to fork out more money to get the full experience. Day-one DLC is a pre-planned, drawn out process usually in production alongside the main content of the game. It all depends on the script, the layout of the game and the way the content is designed but you simply should never gouge out a character simply to cash in on a fanbase because in the end; you'll lose that fanbase.
And Bioware may have already lost...
Customer habits have changed because they can't afford to buy Triple AAA releases throughout the year like they used to in the good ol' days. There is a recession going on you know.
Game budgets are approaching Hollywood levels of financing and that level is unacceptable.
Oh dear. This seems to be a joke article commenting on whether the new consoles are real.
Quote from the article: "The component manufacturers making the innards ARE real, but the components they are making are NOT. Unless they are currently on the market or installed in existing machines. Then they’re real. But the ones being made for the new consoles aren’t. They’re not real. Understood?"
¬_¬ I'm sure it's just an article on...
Interesting. More will come out of this I'm sure.
@Jeseth I'm just on the lookout for titles that I may not have played which have compelling female protagonists. I might look into getting a couple of the titles you've listed but I will have to point out a couple of things.
Heavenly Sword was a flop where despite selling a million and half units. It didn't even break even for Ninja Theory who had to go multi-platform with Enslaved: Odyssey to the West which also flopped with about five hundred thousand units. Fol...
Can you give me a couple of them? I know of Portal, the Fatal Frame series and that FF have recently had a number of female protagonists.
Having a female lead in a video game may not seem to be a big risk but people have got to remember that there is a lot of money that has been pumped into games to the point where they have to sell a lot of copies to just break even.
If I could get a game remade; it'd be Weaponlord. Probably the most metal, awesome beat-em-up that has ever been.
Okay. This fella may have an axe to grind but if what he says is true and he and his team helped to fix the UI for Darksiders 2 but were laid off and their names not put into the credits; then they clearly have a right to be pissed off.
I wouldn't mind seeing this on a console but we'll probably be waiting for some time while the ARMA guys figure out the logistics of such an undertaking.
Hmm. I wonder if they'd try to bundle the PS SS with the Wonderbook in order to grab a younger audience?
I agree with this blog. I've only been here a short time and already have six people who ignore me which is fine I guess. If you have enemies; it means you stood up for something.
I know that people will have probably seen this coming and are probably tired of the whole thing but I felt compelled to post this. Westboro Baptist Church have had their jimmies rustled and plan to picket the GaymerCon which has seemed to have gotten enough cash from their kickstarter to have their little event.
Ultimately, I hope they'll do what the Foo Fighters did and serenade them.
Great game. I think I got it on XBLA indie marketplace. It's really good.
Why the sigh?
