“Gay Space Marines, Industry’s biggest problem” says Mafia II’s senior producer

Gamersmint : The biggest problem that the games industry suffers from right now? No, it’s not the menace of piracy or a second hand games market! It’s the industry’s obsession with…ermm, Gay Space Marines ( O_O). That’s what Mafia II’s senior producer thinks so atleast.

of Halo's success, too bad Mafia II can never do aswell as this game does, and NO neither Noble 6 and nor his teammates are gay, if he's reffering to them. :|

cyborg2956d ago

noble 6, added one by mistake

LtSkittles2956d ago

Just didn't want you to look stupid

ExplosionSauce2956d ago

I thought it was hilarious xD

AngryTypingGuy2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

You're exactly right, Cyborg. People have to realize that when a Halo game launches, it's going to take all the attention from whatever other games are launching at that time. When a Halo game comes out, it's an event unto itself. People can say what they want to about the series, but nothing will take away its incredible success. The only thing that can hurt it in the foreseeable future is if 343 Studios is bad at making Halo games. I'm pretty sure MS has enough money to hire some great talent, so here's hoping for its continued success.

I agree, he is jealous, even if he does not outwardly admit it....mafia two was ok, but a gta clone at the end of the day.

raztad2956d ago

Mafia 2 is totally no a clone of GTA. In fact I think it got some bad reviews because game was pretty much linear and didnt follow GTA footsteps.

GuruStarr782956d ago


ur right, it was way too linear, but the prison level alone made it shine...

DatNJDom812956d ago

He got a point. First person games are WAY OVERSATURATED.

StanLee2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

It's not oversaturation if the games are successful and the genre is evolving. Look at games like Borderlands and Fallout which have had great success and no one really classifies them as FPSs. First person is just the perspective from which the narrative and gameplay unfolds. The industry only responds to what consumers demand and it's a copy cat industry. When consumers start showing that they've grown weary of the genre, you'll see publishers invest elsewhere. But for the success of Call of Duty and Halo, other FPSs have had middling success and others have flatly failed commercially while still being well received critically; The Darkness immediately comes to mind. Fact is, if you make a great game and a publisher puts the marketing dollars behind the project and make people aware of it, it will be successful, regardless of genre.

pustulio2956d ago

Oh yeah they are way too much FPSs but hey KZ3 is coming out...

Wait, whats that? FPS are the shit now?

-Blam!-ing Hypocrites.

Aaroncls72956d ago

I think he meant Starship Troopers, you know cuz of the multisex showers...

KillerBBs2956d ago

this artical can say Gay Space Marines but when i do it, I get reported.

RememberThe3572955d ago

I'd really actually like to know that myself.

Sarcasm2956d ago

To be fair, Master Chief was locked up in a simulated closet. :)

pimpmaster2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

its just called giving a cuality product. just look at the top marine games, they all either have single player, multiplayer, coop and or have over 40 hours of play time. alot of replayability and gaming out of your 60$, where as mafia 2 is just a 11 hour game(i beat it in 11 hours) with no online/ coop/ or any replayability other than dragging through the game again for collctibles. im tired of the marine game too but good games with value tend to revolve around a simple mechanic like killing things over and over/

Shepherd 2142956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

I would be a bit disappointed if i wasnt lucky enough to be a dev of Halo or Killzone. I thought Mafia II was bleh.

Hey, maybe someone should ask him if the industry suffers because people like hime let bad dev companies put shoddy ports on the PS3. Ahem, Mafia II?

I think people like him, being a Senior Producer and all, should be worried about more than say that great games have "Gay Space Marines".

Shepherd 2142955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

Are you stupid enough to think that this dev isnt thinking AT ALL about the famous "Space Marine" who has been the mascot for Microsoft's console for almost ten years?

Give me a break.

Oldsnake0072956d ago

lol are you stupid ? where the hell did he mentioned Halo.

oh I understand

Gay space marine = Halo

You just confirmed that .

Man In Black2955d ago

Is greedy fucktard producers like him who have games like Mafia 2 cut up into pieces, then released as DLC. Jimmy's Vendetta seems to consist of sidemissions cut from the main game, and Jimmy himself has Vito's body, except with a slaphead pasted on top.

SkylineR2955d ago (Edited 2955d ago )

Why do people think he's referring to Master Chief and Co.? They're hardly the ones to blame for "gay space marines.

Doomguy is the original Space Marine. Blame him. :p

I think chopping games to pieces for DLC is the big problem.

JoySticksFTW2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

This is my biggest problem this gen

Second is devs trying to make multiplats uniform without taking advantage of what each system excels at

Third is Trolls posing as "reputable" gaming media

Brklynty12956d ago

Because DVD9 was the best choice this gen..../s

FragMnTagM2955d ago

blame greedy devs and publishers. Bungie somehow managed to put more content on one disk than many blu ray games I have played. In fact, all the blu ray games I have played.

Because Mafia 2 is so unique...

pustulio2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )


Who the hell wants a Mafia movie? No one because we already got them.

Who wants a Halo movie? A lot of people because there has not been one.

What game is set on a time that has been used over and over again? Mafia.

What game CREATES it's own universe and tells a story? Halo.

Theres your gay space marines you idiot, maybe next time this guy should keep his comments to himself.

BTW Bungie knows how to build grass.

RememberThe3572955d ago

"BTW Bungie knows how to build grass." HAHAHA that was great.

OGharryjoysticks2956d ago

...he might have a point. Vanquish, Killzone, Halo, Gears, etc.

Simon_Brezhnev2956d ago

and Mass Effect he does have a point.

outrageous2956d ago (Edited 2956d ago )

Sour grapes that Halo Reach sold more in a hour than his game has sold in weeks. He should be choosing his words carefully seeing that he will be looking for a new job shortly...maybe he could make Mafia 3: The ballad of gay Mafia'

PirosThe4th2956d ago

I let Vanquish go cuz its awesome... and Killzone it's ok... But halo and Gears are shit...
