While speaking to IncGamers in a recent interview, Cryptic Studios' newly-appointed Chief Creative Officer Bill Roper admitted the company's current games could be better.

I think Cryptic really tries to do the right thing. It's a shame some people are determined to dislike them regardless.

Thats a well managed statement. Besides, its not smart for any company leader to think what they do is perfect (Infinity Ward). Gotta give the guy credit. Shows character.

Fyzzu5182d ago

Fair assessment, and much as a few people are going to jump up and down on this, I think it's good to see a company actually being realistic about their own products. I don't think it's fair to proclaim Cryptic's games "bad" but there's always such hype about them that people can't help but feel disappointed when they don't quite match up.

Champions and STO really aren't that bad ya know. Like Bill said, they're not great but they're getting there. All games start out a bit wobbly and improve over time.

ms can learn from cryptic games

but if ms said somethin like "hey. we're overpriced and you might get RROD but the games are good"

then people left n right would jump OUT

Was never really a big Voyager fan I did watch it they reused a lot of the same story arcs time travel, slip stream, the borg, thrown closer to home. Best aliens I like that were introduced in the series were the Hirogen would love to see the Klingons take them on in a war.

The big issue was it was hard to have any consistency as you knew they were not going to mysteriously get home and Villains had to be infrequent as they were going through their space and would in time be out of range of their influence. There was a plan for the ship to get home via a new technology early in a mid season and then have them go to and from the Delta Quadrant and Federation as the story needed but that was nixed. I think not showing what happened when they actually set foot on Earth was a huge issue. I am hoping Picard addresses it.

Knightofelemia872d ago

There were plans to show a few episodes of what happened to the Voyager crew once they came back to the Alpha Quadrant but that fell through. Voyager was ok but it's not TNG or DS9 those two series I liked Enterprise with Scott Bakula was good I could never get into the Captain Kirk Star Trek that was before my time.

DS9 was great. I have not been able to get into Discovery. I do not like the characters or stories. I do not expect Xmas lights but the fact that it is 10 years before Kirk yet the ship is so much more advanced even before they went into time has not worked for me. Mainly dislike the characters. Prodigy lost me at the first episode but Lower Decks has grown on me and I have liked Picard.
