Game Informer: "We talk to Final Fantasy 16 composer Masayoshi Soken about the game's prelude."
After laying off numerous employees, Tim Sweeney, the company’s founder and CEO, sent an email about the situation. The 52-year-old businessman clarified why the layoffs happened and even shed some light on the future of Fortnite.
Good on them doing this at least. “we’re offering a severance package that includes six months base pay and in the US/Canada/Brazil six months of Epic-paid healthcare. We’re offering to accelerate people’s stock option vesting schedule through the end of 2024 and are giving two additional years from today to exercise the options. In the US we’re also offering to vest any unearned profit sharing from their 401k. And we’ll provide benefits including career transition services and visa support where we can.”
I wonder how much of a bonus the CEO will get after this decision?
Too much will be the amount.
Would be "too much" for us, but probably it's "not enough" for the greedy bastard...
Epic makes way too much money to have to lay people off of the spent that money smartly. Tim wasted money on exclusives for their store when it could have gone to paychecks for people.
Epic put all their eggs in one basket with fortnite, they should have continued with the development of unreal tournament and got that game going as an arena shooter that's free to play with a huge cosmetic cash shop. But your CEO knows what their doing.... laying off people so the board doesn't see exactly how much you stuck. The usual playbook.
Remedy’s Sam Lake describes the work involved
Currently my most anticipated Remake project
Max Payne 3 is my 2nd favourite game ever. I cannot wait for these remakes.
They aren't remaking 3 though. Only 1 & 2.
I know. It's the style of gameplay that I like due to how much I played MP1 and mostly 3.
Max Payne 3 is very underrated. I've been planning to do a second run of the game for quite a while ... The multiplayer part was also infamous for being surprisingly really good, but was overlooked by many Would love a remake of that as well but by R* themselves using their own RAGE engine, to have a nice contrast against Remedy's Northlight engine project. :)
What other confirmed remake project excluding Final Fantasy exists?
KOTOR Gothic Silent Hill 2 MGS3 Persona 3
I just hope they don't end up digital-only like Alan Wake 2.
I adore these games, they ooze atmosphere. I hope they are fantastic. I wish Remedy would have done Max Payne 3, Rockstar had some amazing gun play in them but the story was just not as good. It's like they were working on a new IP and slapped Max Payne onto it, only the flashback levels felt like Max Payne. Also they went of the ending where Mona died which sucked. I wouldn't mind if one day they did their own Max Payne 3
I liked the story tbh. I mean the main plot did feel very disconnected from 1 and 2 but I really liked Max's character development tbh
His development felt like it did a 180 from what was shown in Max Payne 2
I wanna see them so bad, but it'll probably be years
OG Max Payne redone in the best way possible would be awesome and an easy purchase. Hope they get it right.
As long as the remake's being made in like for like manner and not to appeal modern audiences...
negative, a 1:1 remake with modern tech, modern movement, modern button layout, etc, is perfection personified. I can only hope they don't replace the oxycodone for vitamins.
Good. Make them worth it!
Max Payne 3 New York Minute Trophy was insane... didn't get the platinum for the game because of that trophy :D Hoping they don't add trophies like this in these 2 games LOL
This right here is my most anticipated upcoming game.
Finished the first game on the PS2 all those years ago, never finished the sequel. Arcade mode in Max Payne 3 was awesome. Will probably pick this up and play both games. Rockstar should throw Max Payne in GTA as DLC missions.
