They will buy the faded T-shirt - the hipster dude down in Soho or whatever, right? - they think about Atari as this cool, old brand like so many other cool old brands, but they're the ones buying [retro-styled things like] Mini Coopers.
For this reason, sadly I cannot buy one

It's certainly misleading, as "Doom original game" definitely refers to Doom 1. Doom "original game soundtrack" still strongly suggests it's about Doom 1.

@fabio78

"Given the long developing cycle of these titles and how far into this generation we are, I can't see anything big coming in time, either. I think this generation is gonna be a write-off for them."

I don't think so. After the hardware upgrades, it seems this gen will still be around for a while; and Skyrim was relatively late into last gen and ended up being one of its defining titles. I wouldn't write off Bethesda so quickly just because of one game that fell short of expectations (but was certainly not a bad game, mind).

Bioware is a different story. After the acquisition by EA, they still made two fan favourites with ME2 and Dragon Age: Origins, but after that, they mostly made games that fell short of expectations in one way or another and drew a lot of criticism (ME3, DA2, DA:I, Andromeda). You can speculate how much of that is EA's fault, but they certainly have had an impact and can tell Bioware what to do, with the constant threat of layoffs and closure. It also seems that Bioware is a very different company with very different staff today compared to ten years ago.

I don't know about Bethesda in this regard, but I'd assume they're closer to who they were in the past than Bioware is--in fact, much of the Fallout 4 criticism was about Bethesda being a little too much old Bethesda, in contrast to Bioware who are frequently accused of having lost their ways. Plus, they're pretty much their own bosses, and after the financial success of their most recent games, and a lot more cash earned with little investment (Skyrim SE), they're probably in a position where they can reach for the stars with the next Elder Scrolls game.

I'm a little cautious after Fallout 4 too, but I think there's a very real possibility that they'll manage to blow minds again. After multiple disappointments I've mostly written off Bioware, but after only one not-as-great-as-expected game I'll give Bethesda the benefit of doubt.

"Hooray! Valve is going to start shipping games again"

DrStrangelove

Wait a minute...

"Artifact is the first of several games that are going to be coming from us, so that's sort of good news," Newell said, reported by PC Gamer. "Hooray! Valve is going to start shipping games again."

We know three of Valve's new games are virtual reality games, because Newell said so a year ago at a similar press event. "When I say we're building three games, we're building three full games, not experiments," he said at the time. Whether there are other games in development beside these, or any non-virtual reality games, we don't yet know.

"We aren't going to be talking about it today," Newell said at the Artifact press event, "but the big thing, the new arrow we have in our quiver, is our ability to develop hardware and software simultaneously."
OMG OMG IT'S HAPPENING

Where do downloadable games go when they die?

Back in 2014, Flappy Bird became a worldwide phenomenon, commanding the top spot on mobile download charts. But all of a sudden its creator, Dong Nguyen, pulled the game from sale, citing guilt over its addictive nature. Overnight, phones with the game installed started changing hands for $10,000 or more - and even today, long after Flappy Bird mania has died down, you can still find Flappy Bird phones going for $2,000 on Amazon.

The making of Supreme Commander

DrStrangelove

4 months ago

Loved Total Annihilation despite its flaws (it was certainly ingenious and showed how much further RTS can go), but never really liked Supreme Commander. As C&C and the Craft games tried to refine their mechanics, Supreme Commander mostly went bigger with lots of automated AI stuff etc. which just started to bore me. I think it went too big for its own good.

It was a great time for RTS in the late 90s when you had different approaches competing with each other in those three series on an even level. I think C&C hit its peak with Tiberium Sun and I lost interest afterwards. Supreme Commander didn't catch me.

Starting in the early noughties, with Warcraft 3, RTS became a genre utterly dominated by Blizzard for me.

Some publishers say you shouldn't play more than one hour a day and then they make some sort of weekly event that rewards you for playing as much as possible. It's like those "drink responsibly" messages on cheap beer that occupies half an acre in the discount supermarket. Yea, right.
