How come we never see Christopher mark PS fanboy comments from anast, AloyMetal, hofstaderman etc inappropriate?

Weird, surely a coincidence.

with E3 hype fizzling out in less then 24 hours, after the event, and with capcom not releasing certain games on the xbox platform and phil going multiplatform things are not looking good, right know

And this shows why Capcom is bypassing the Xbox with Marvel vs Capcom. Microsoft better get their head out of their ass and figure out how to fix this problem and how they want to go on with XBox as a brand. Xbox is well when the next gen systems come out I highly doubt I will get the next gen Xbox.

No doubt, considering the thousands of dollars a single person can spend just on DLC for Sims 4. They don't want that cash cow being threatened. I used to be a huge Sims fan, now I'm just disgusted by what it's become.

From what I heard from a friend in the industry and apparently this is pretty well known to a lot of groups, they relied really heavily on AI in the game. The AI basically broke which would have caused the devs thousands of hours of work to rework a lot of things from scratch.

Theres also people saying the higher ups didn't want AI being used, and when they found out they went ballistic. But thats more of a conspiracy theory/rumor more than anything else Im told.

Real shame either way, showed a lot of promise. Regardless, Dev's got screwed hard :(
