It's bloody criminal this never got a sequel. It's a superb game and one of the best FPSs of its gen.

Clearing up confusion surrounding Crackdown 3 destruction

Triggerhappytel

11 months ago

The game looks fine but the trailer they showed at E3 was amazingly bad. It was about 160 seconds as I recall, nearly half of that was the live-action skit and the rest was mostly unnatural camera angles showing very limited shots of gameplay. Really wasn't a good showing for what MS should be pushing as one of their major first-party exclusives this year.

@arcam figures circulating a few weeks ago suggested that Skyrim has sold 30 million copies. It's insane.

@Eurogamer - "Still, it's an astonishing milestone for what is the best-selling game of all time."

GTAV isn't the best selling game of all time. Wii Sports, Minecraft and Tetris are all above it. Maybe others too.

Not really a surprise. I think they're changing a lot of stuff based on feedback from the original launch and The Taken King, and hopefully they're spending some time creating a more meaningful plot, integrating the Grimoires into the game (not on a separate fucking website) and developing a few mission-specific set piece events or battles. I love the game, but it does often feel a bit empty and barren.

A bit too pricey for me. I don't buy any games digitally for more than £20, so I'll be waiting on a sale for this. Good luck to Blow and his team though, as the game looks fascinating,and I really respect that he's taken absolutely essential everything earned from Braid and reinvested it into this project.

Ex-Sony Online boss announces RPG Hero's Song

Triggerhappytel

2 years ago

I feel like something's not adding up with their funding. They're a team of 13 people but need a total of $1.8 million to fund a 12 month development of their game. That's a salary of almost $140k each. Or even if we say they're taking $100k each and leaving $500k for fees, expenses, third party contractors (like the composer etc), that still seems like a bloody good salary for an indie developer. For comparison, the guys at Zeboyd ran a Kickstarter for Cosmic Star Heroine in October 2013 and got $132k against their goal of $100k. The game's due quite soon, so why is it they can get buy on about $25k per year each on the money from Kickstarter while Pixelmage needs 4x that amount?

Assassin's Creed Syndicate sales "clearly" impacted by Unity

Triggerhappytel

3 years ago

I realise these games are developed by separate teams and probably get 3+ years in development, but even so they need to let it have a year off and completely redevelop some aspects from the ground up. I mean, they must understand that franchise fatigue is a thing, right?! I wouldn't be surprised if next year there is no AC instalment and they let Watch Dogs 2 take its place while it takes a year out and they try to reinvent some of its mechanics, because what was impressive in 2007 and 2009 has long since been superceded by today's standards.

Video: Where's the hype for these huge games?

Triggerhappytel

3 years ago

I haven't watched the video, but if you need a quick summary of why in my opinion:

No-one cares about AC Syndicate after the car crash that was Unity. Ubi will need to work very hard to earn consumer trust back.

Hitman is a pretty big brand but it's nowhere near as prominent as all the big releases this winter, and so I'm not surprised it's not making much of an impact next to Battlefront, Black Ops 3, Halo 5, Fallout 4, Tomb Raider 2, etc.

Deus Ex is a late 2016 release so there's plenty of time for it to make headlines and get lots of hype yet. Give it time.
