        fake gameplay trailer and a billion issues, i forgot the details but i remember that there was some kind of error where the basic initial weapon was killing enemies faster than endgame weapons

          Nahh, it was enemy health being scaled based on weapon damage meaning that weapon upgrades were pointless as you'd take the same amount of time to kill enemies

        I remember reading it overheated your console so much it literally managed to kill some. Probably the explosion part is bait, but it really was the most ambitious yet broken, glitchy, unoptimized and just lame game EA ever had their hands on as a publisher.

      Didn't end the studio but it did end the fake air of infallibility that they had. I wonder if they'd have actually buckled down and made it good if critics hadn't sucked off Dragon Age:Inquisition despite its mediocrity.

        that was dragon age origins and mass effect 2 being the culprits there, if we're being honest

        dragon age origins showed that they NEEDED wizards of the coast or other license holders in order to tard wrangle their stupid ideas
        and mass effect 2 was just really poor writing and focusing on bland characters with one note daddy issues and showed the trilogy thing they were going to try going for couldn't be executed with the people they have on staff

          Literally no idea wtf you’re talking about. Origins (despite being a knock off LOTR) was still a massive success and popular asf. Ffs the game had a modding scene that outlasted DA2 and prolly Inquisition.

        inquisition had such obvious sequel bait for an ending and was a success which kept them on life support (nevermind dreadwolf has been in such dev hell almost no one is braced for anything but a disaster)
        LE gave them enough of a boost to plan for a revival of ME but honestly if dreadwolf is an outright flop I think it kills the studio

      having a soft spot for lootershooters, i carry a torch for this game. yes, virtually everything about it was/is terrible, but fighting and flying in the javelins felt fantastic and the map was fun to explore. there was a fun game in there somewhere, but they fumbled literally every aspect that wasn't moment to moment action gameplay. side story -

          probably more than a decade ago now, I just think most criticism of Bethesda (especially online) isn't super productive, I imagine it's hard to take any of the good feedback when the vast majority of the feedback is not very well thought out.

      No, even when TES6 bombs it wont affect them

      Remember anon, Copies of Skyrim still sell because every year some Kid gets his first PC. On top of that theyre owned by microsoft now who wont just scrap them right after buying them
      My guess is TES6 will be another CyberPunk in terms of hype because people are stupid, and it will be just as big of a dissapointment.

      Even if the writing is shit though, like Fallout 4, as long as the map is fun to explore like in Fo4, people will forgive them.

          I'm telling you, in ~5 years we'll see "Starfield is good now" posts

          I'll actually disagree with you here, People werent really hyped for starfield from what i saw, it was more cautious optimism. Had 76 not released the hype would be critical mass
          People are catching on and i think just going to apathy instead of anger. Bethesda really isnt "forgiven" more just being forgotten

          I doubt people will even remember StarField was a thing in 5 years

          TES though? Absoulutly, if its memorable.

            I'd argue unless we see some crazy shit the hype for ES6 will be tempered, even as time passes. 76 and Starfield were just that bad that expectations have been curbed.
            The point is, regardless of hype or initial failure there will be people saying it's not that bad day 1 as the game shits itself around them and given a year, patches, some DLC, mods, and a discount people will just be saying it's good.

        I’ve seen most of the game played and it really isn’t woke at all. It’s more of a stereotypical 90s-era “black person tries to overcome the hood life” story than anything. And the game doesn’t make some feminist statement about the all-female heroes of the fantasy world either. It’s just how it is and there’s nothing more to it. Not saying the game is good, but just that woke isn’t the game’s problem.

            This game not only killed Volition, it effectively crumbled Embracer which in turn got Timesplitters cancelled. We also now won't see IdolNinja's PC patch for Saints Row 2, nor the new Deus Ex title.

              I'm mad, frick Embracer Group.

              While it's a real shame that the revival got cancelled, we did at least get to laugh at this fricking game and the clueless argument dumbasses behind it.

              Saints Row 2022 saddens me greatly. In tiny aspects like the open world and character customization it felt like there was an attempt to improve upon SR3 and get back to something closer to the first two, but the combat was infinitely worse than 3's and fricking nothing happened storywise. At the bare minimum I expected young criminals starting a gang and ending up being in over their heads, and we didnt even get that.

                All the studio they were buying (except Gearbox) were at risk of shutting down before that. It was more of a gamble, whether they could release any successful games before the economy tanked.

                yes, but that's the thing - the saudis were looking around already. EG tried to buy up all those studios, then jack up the final buying price for everything together and they gave it absolutely no thought that the saudis would just laugh and wait until EG went bankrupt, knowing not even the chinese would want to buy it for that price
                so there will be a fire sale of EG having to sell off all assets to the highest buyer, and it will be no where near the billions for the assets themselves.

            If Ben Newman was involved with the team again, it would be far from pozzed. The guy himself could lead western studios back from the shitty characters being designed today, the work he's done puts so many of these studios to shame. Also guys like Alfred from the Rewind team could use a full time job as he actually made most of the characters in the series fully faithful to their original designs.

        this was also partially because saints row reboot fricking bombed. you can still watch the embracer's group investors stream and see the horror in their faces during the announcement. it was so bad that the new best scenario was worse than the pervious worse investment scenario

          Well I'll be, I think you're right. Apparently the MMO and ARPG were separate projects meant to be set in the same world, with Kingdoms of Amulur being the rest of the MMO devs buying another studio (before releasing their first game) and adapting their existing project. Which is just as fricking crazy.

              Don't forget that part of the reason why it got funding from Rhode Island is that the founder of the studio was a former professional baseball player.

      That's pretty much what happened, they still operate in the same office but as smaller and more independent studio. Cloud Chamber is the new studio that pretty much replaced old Irrational, and plenty of devs were relocated there.

      If Ken Levine wanted to make another Bioshock after Bioshock Infinite; 2K would have given him all the money in the world to do so. But he wanted to make something nobody has ever played before. And 2K (as well as Take Two) was incompetent and did not know what to do with Irrational without Ken; but they couldn't keep 100 people on payroll doing nothing while Ken went into pre-production for a decade figuring out how his next game was even going to work. So they had to shut Irrational down; but they found work for everyone there.

      And there isn't a doubt in my mind that the wait will be worth it; and Judas will be soooooo much more and even better than another Bioshock.

    Then a decade after C&C4 some guy who played C&C as a kid gets the greenlight for a passion project remaster of the original games with Petroglyph. It sells well but the guy moves on to another company and EA haven't said anything about any other remasters or IP revivals.

    PS: C&C4 remains delisted on all digital storefronts. It's so shit EA would rather pretend it doesn't exist, unlike every other game in the series which you can still buy to this day.

      3. C&C3 did well... at first due to nostalgia, Kane's Wrath sold like shit, and RA3 sold ultra shit, to the point they didn't even print discs for its expansion
      >They try their best
      1. No they didn't, they focus tested the game with DOTAgays and Dawn of War2queers, who said base building is bad
      2. They did this because KW&RA3 were huge failures and wanted to "course correct"

      1. Team was renamed to Bioware Victory
      2. They were making a Generals 2 which was turned into just "Command & Conquer" and was an online game
      3. They got as far as having a closed alpha
      4. It was shit and it was cancelled, studio is kill

      Series was dead before 4 came out. It was just the final nail in the coffin.

      It wasn't made by the same people.
      EA LA was basically 2 studios under one name. The part that was Dreamworks Interactive was the one that made MoH games, while the RTS games were the Westwood remnants.
      The studios were finally split into two, one being Danger Close Games(MoH team) and the other Bioware Victory/Victory Games(C&C&BFME) before both died a year later.

        Yeah the LOTR: BfME games were great and it's a shame they're basically never ever going to be available on Steam. Always thought RA3 did decently but can't find much in the way of sales data as all the articles from the era have been nuked, just some forum threads mentioning that it dropped out of the top 10 within a month of release.

        Weird that they fired a bunch of EA LA people and then rehired them months later for Victory Games. I assumed it was a new team. I also forgot about that C&C browser only game which apparently staggered on for years.

      Don't forget that C&C3 cursed Petroglyph because when Sega heard its plot was "humans versus aliens" they forced Petroglyph to cut the human resistance faction from Universe at War:Earth Assault.

      The game still probably wouldn't have survived being stuck on GFWL at its worst iteration but the lack of a good entry faction probably killed it for good.

      C&C3 was hugely hyped and floated entirely on the power of nostalgia, turns out all the nostalgia features they put back into C&C dont hold up well at all. Shit like base defences popping up in your face or mining your entire tiberium field in 3 minutes is just garbage.

      C&C4 was a reconfiguration of a korean F2P game that was canceled. But at this point westwood already was marked for death.

    Reminder that "Halo Killer" is an ENTIRELY fan fabricated idea that was never once even remotely pushed by the dev or the publisher. You will not find a single instance of this is you actually research it yourself.

      What is killing iD is their leadership and business practices more than the games they put out. They lost a lot of good will over the Mick Gordon and soundtrack drama. Not to mention that the allegations of mismanagement by Gordon checks out when you look at the invasion mechanic and how they never got that off the ground, probably because they can’t keep a competent schedule to save their careers.

    The trouble with Haze was that they didn't start buzzword marketing until other people decided what the buzzwords were. Everyone was comparing it to Halo, saying it was like Halo without the aliens.
    But if you ever played the game, it's very obvious that the game was more influenced by the trends set up by games like Half-Life 2. If anything, Resistance was closer to Halo that Haze was. Even though the campaign mode was a bore, it had some neat ideas and the gameplay was 8/10 at the time in terms of sandbox play. You could do big bot/online matches and that felt a little closer to Timesplitters FP, but in the new gen of games.

    That's wrong, the deals that Free Radical made with Activision for a Goldeneye remaster and LucasArts for Star Wars Battlefront 3 fell through. The latter really killed them considering how much time and effort they put into that, no thanks to Darrel Rodriguez and the lawyers set to kill all third party titles LucasArts contracted out.

          ehh. I remember they promised that it would be 6-8 weeks between episodes. The second episode took 13 weeks to come out, the third episode took slightly less, and by the time they released the last episode they were on that timetable but it was too little too late. It was also the same time they were making the Game of Thrones TellTale game at the height of GoT popularity, insisted that they could do both games at once, and immediately prioritized GoT over TfTBL.
