Avalanche Studios (Just Cause, Mad Max, theHunter) secured over $10M in investment to develop and self-publish more high quality games.
This is fantastic news. I hope the devs can use this money to put it towards a mutliplayer department. That's the only thing missing from the Just Cause games!
They should have called me to help them with JC3 ideas, would have done it for free. I'm only a 45 minute train ride from their NYC studio. It was such a bland world and the performance is still horrible on consoles.
I read your crazy JC3 review a few months back.
You're not totally off base, but I think they are getting better. Next step is to add more destructible environments and less cookie cutter destruction. I played it on pc and the bravarium jetpack was a stroke of genius. Make it like Mercenaries!
Good for them! Looking forward to what they'll be making as a result.
I'll buy the next Just Cause game used, that last one was a goddamn dumpster fire. I seriously don't understand why they released it like that and why it has yet to be patched
JC2 is the better game especially on PC with multiplayer.
I was going to comment on the, "more high quality games" bit because JC3 was a nightmare, but you summed up my point quite nicely. JC4 had better be a well produced, stable game from the get-go. I haven't even bought JC3 because of all the negative feedback about its' lack of polish and lack of repair.
I'm from Denmark, and I happen to really like both Mad Max and Just Cause 3, so I think this is AWESOME!
Mad Max was pretty great, especially on PC. Ridiculously well optimized game. Would love to see a sequel.
Here's hoping for a second Mad Max game, I really liked it aswell. Fun gameplay and smooth graphically
interesting i didn't know they were doing so good to continue, I actually thought they were dying out as a dev studio. I didn't pick up just cause 3 or mad max, and alot of people I know didn't either. However, it looks like they sold enough to keep funding that's wonderful. I still need to pick up those two games as well just my backlog is soooo crazy.
"High quality games", like the still broken and unoptimised Just Cause 3?
I will agree that JC3 has some issues but I have had a blast playing it. It makes it especially fun when off the wall things happen like my tank goes flying through the air for no reason. My wife and I laughed so hard. I think games like that aren't meant to be taken too seriously. As long as it is not a game crashing bug then really what harm does it do? As for MM I really liked the game but again I think the non game breaking bugs make the game a little more fun. Here is an example of an issue I had using the harpoon. https://www.youtube.com/wat...
My understanding is that 10 million, hell even 30 million is nothing to produce Triple-A games. However, is they are developing Double-A games this MIGHT be enough. I remember the developers fo Kingdoms of Amalur getting a 30 million dollar infusion while they were working on their follow-up to Kingdoms and this wasn't enough. They had to declare bankruptcy. Hope this isn't some ploy to stay afloat and then declare bankruptcy.
JC 3 could have worked in the 80's to impress kids...
