Legendary bad business decisions in gaming

Cameron King
Cameron King

Less to do than No Man's Sky
5 years development time
Bigger studio
Bigger budget
Microsoft cancelled Scalebound infavor of Sea of thieves
Microsoft nearly bankrupt platinum games by cancelling scalebound
I doubt even going free to play will save Sea of thieves…. every industry and game development decision was embarrassingly bad. No man sky’s wasn’t no where this bad. I Swear. I wouldn’t be surprised if the PS vita and Wii U were more profitable than Xbox one at this point.

Nintendo deciding to stick with cartridges for the N64 and the restrictive contracts cost them a shitload of developers. Nintendo, again, deciding to use a weird format for the Gamecube also cost them developer support.

Both Sony and Sega deciding, at various times, to use overly complex processor setups meant it took a long time for developers to figure out how to squeeze out performance out of the consoles.

Ion Storm making Deus Ex 2 and Thief 3 for consoles primarily.

Might be because they're complete and utter cucks that don't even dare call out the bullshit, let alone point out the Jew. Let's not pretend /co/ wasn't full to the brim with faggots even before niggerwood started his reign.

And? BioWare was never good and they repeatedly kept digging their own grave. They had the next Star Wars in their hands and shat it up because their head writer had a hissy fit and didn't want to change the shit ending, despite biocucks begging them to change it and being will to pay extra for it.

Sure they do. They were ignored, because while no one was looking for the warning signs, the comics industry turned into an incestuous shitpile of nepotism and favor-trading. The train picked up too much speed and now no one can stop it. Most of /co/ is resigned to watching and waiting for it to finally derail even if it destroys the entire industry. And that's not even getting into what's happened to cartoons.

Just remember Holla Forums: no matter how bad it gets you, /co/ is always going to be worse.

There's a reason other fandoms can and get heard and /co/ gets ignored, and it has little to do with the industry being a cesspit of nepotism and Jews and everything to do with the fact /co/ only started to voice complaints when things got really bad. They were perfectly fine with niggers, faggots, interracial relationships and all the other garbage and only started to care about the pozz when things reached critical mass and it finally dawned on them they were past the point of no return.

Like said /co/ always prided themselves on being the "nice" board, and this clearly reflects the general attitude of the anons that inhabited it. We all know "nice" is just an euphemism for cucked.

Well, you have to factor in the subversion.
Not all the whores from the Tumblr raids went back home, some of them set up shop on /co/.

I distinctly remember telling /co/ to ban the Homosuck generals because they were tumblr incubators. I said to do the same with My Little Pony, but /co/ was too busy virtue signaling to give a shit, which really just illustrates the attitudes of comic book nerds in general. They always were soycucks more concerned with "proving" that comics were a mature medium with serious minority and female characters than they were with safeguarding comics.

I hope you're right, user, but Microshill's been sinking shekels into jewtubers and there are some SoT videos out there with over a million views. If the kiddies actually go out and buy the game it might not do poorly, unless they sunk some ridiculous amounts on development with that
5 years development time
but that would be a real feat given how fucking nothing the game is. A small AA team could've produced it in under two years.

Gavin Jenkins

allowed it to happen.
And how were they supposed to stop it? Just like we can't stop developers from inviting Anita to give lectures to their employees, they couldn't stop what was happening to them. Its not something to scorn them for, you should pity them instead. They were the canary in the coal mine. We looked over at what was happening to them and braced ourselves for what was to come.

This. They are simply retarded. I mean, the population is always divided around 50-50 right? How stupid must you be, to speak publicly against 50% of your possible clients? The 50% that buys, the 50% that has money.
I remember this one writer for arkane studio. Back then mike brown got shot. He jumped right up calling white people racist. Nobody even knew what the fuck happened. Expressing a position in total ignorance, by default, is always idiotic. If you represent your fucking software house, you are twice as stupid to express yourself like that. And if the nigger you defended was actually guilty as fuck, then the idiocy goes off the charts. How did dishonored 2 ended up performing? Nobody knows, because nobody even knows dishonored 2 exists.

These developers are dumb people. And dumb people don't fly. They can only make dumb games.

That's easy; they've convinced themselves that it's much less than 50% of people who oppose their views. It's easy to think that way when you confine yourself to an echo chamber.
They think the people they spurn with their comments are an insignificant minority of backwards hicks plowing a field somewhere in middle America.

Leftists aren't particularly smart or talented, they get hired the same way Jews always do, through nepotism. One of them eventually gets hired by a company and proceeds to brownnose his/her way up the HR company ladder until they are positioned to screen new applicants. This is the point where they begin selecting hires not based on merit, but political affiliation (hence why leftists keep their unprofessional attire, tattoos, problem glasses and piercings when going to job interviews, it's a way to identify each other).

Soon enough every part of the company is filled with them, and then they start to complain, threaten harassment lawsuits and generally disrupting the work environment. Now you can't fire them because that would paint you as a racist by the MSM, who are fully in on the leftists takeover scheme, so you're fucked.

Basically, never allow leftists to fester in your community.

Not enough people know about and oppose this shit for a worthwhile boycott to be staged. Several big name devs have had her and other feminist/SJW speakers over and have faced no consequences for it. I don't even think the studios behind Mirrors Edge or Sunset are among those she's spoken at.

That's all besides the point though. The point is that comic fans may not have fought as hard as we have to keep this shit out of their games, but I think the results of our own battles goes to show that even if they did it wouldn't have affected much.

kinda reminds me of Far Cry 4 where they shoe horned this (((Amita))) character and she was such an evil cunt that it only served to make Pagan Min even more justyfied

user, I fear there might be another terrifying component at work. A few studies suggest women hire based on either in their sexual preferences for men or how 'safe' they seem while for women they lean toward hiring those less attractive than themselves.

I wonder what will happen to the player population of all the mobas and battle royales when China's social credit system makes it dangerous to play video games. Because that shit is going to be mandatory in 2020. I know their NEET equivalents won't care but the communist party is about to attempt a massive social restructuring that will probably turn them into an actual cyberpunk hellscape. But with less neon and more toxic smog.

It's just not "obviously villainous megacorp who puts the same name on all their products" like in the movies. Everything you see on shelves in the US, when you go up the ladder of which corporations own what, is made by like… seven corporations. All the small ISPs who are "competition" to the big name ones are just renting their bandwidth, you're still giving them business. Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, SEAT, Škoda, and Ducati are all owned by VW. Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Jeep, Lancia, and Maserati are all owned by Fiat.
Megacorps already exist but nobody realizes it.

Some affiliate of Tencent is doing one of the pilots programs, yes, but so is Alibaba and I believe 6 other companies. Their government is going to do something in 2020 to consolidate the databases and credit system.
And bear in mind the Communist Government views playing video games as a social ill. Their government is actually concerned about churning out enough productive future members of their society to keep things running. They've seen what has happened to us and would rather have a second Cultural Revolution than go through it.

China's cyberpunk hellscape is going to either destroy them or infect Europe. I'd say Africa as well, but lets be real China is going to make apartheid look like the EU's multiculti propoganda future.

At the end of the day there is the Party and the continuation of the Revolution. The companies are just a part of the Party, a very lucrative part with fleshy replaceable parts running it.

You first need to have actual infrastructure to create a hellscape. The niggers will simply starve to death once the rest of the world descends into a full blown dystopia.

Make wildly popular virtual pet site, which, at one point, was one of the most trafficked sites on the Internet
2007 rolls around, site traffic is at its peak, although its relative size is smaller than it was a few years prior
Smartphones start to become a thing
Start to work on smartphone functionality
End up stopping, deciding to focus entirely on desktop development, barring some content using the IP but not connected to the site proper
Influx of new players starts to dry up, due to the target audience leaving for the mobile market en masse
Veteran players start to leave out of boredom
Site is slowly but surely tanking, and gets sold off
Continues development for another year or two before only being able to work on stuff that requires regular updates
Some of the features that have been on the site for several years start to be discontinued
This pattern happens for about 3 years
It's announced that the software that your site basically runs on will be no longer supported in about 3 years
Have 3 years to update the entire site to function on a different type of software, on a barebones budget that barely allows new content to be produced in the first place

Mother fucker, I'm to tell you the story of D2 despite being sleep deprived
Super dedicated reddit infested fan base for first game, excused every fuck up bungie made, worshiped the director the series Luke Smith because he accidently made a fun raid and a DLC with good background lore that was promptly ignored or rewritten, but we'll get to that
Multiple youtube personalities that dissected the patchwork clusterfuck of lore
People hype as fuck about Destiny 2
Beta happens
Deep concern brews - abilities recharge at snail pace, 4v4 multi is godawfully slow
TTK gone to shit in PVP, PVE is nothing but health sponge boring turtle dudes that knock you away when you get close, story exists solely for a three second credit cutscene about pyramids
You are no longer a space wizard because that isn't fun to watch on twitch, says their lead of PVP First game has a higher twitch viewership and, I suspect, overall population
It is learned that during development they did the exact same thing as with the first game, and rebooted development roughly a year before release
Endless controversy about entire game built around cosmetic lootbox store
This is compounded when first DLC drops
Was hyped to hell and back
Supposed to have a character that was important to plot
Bungie shills said it would fix the game
Said we're going to get a procedural generated level thing
All three are fucking lies
Game was still shit
Procedural generated area is accessible in story missions you can't replay; no horde mode or epic dungeon delve it is a warframe speedrun level that exists to make the story of the DLC last 40 minutes longer only because you have to run through way too many times
The character was written by a SJW Marvel comics writer who is so bad the Black Widow comic was canceled because of her ineptitude so basically he was utterly irrelevant and the tie in webcomic was universally hated
One interesting moment where bungie left for two weeks, overpowered glitch gun was sold by weekly vendor, PvP was laser fest with TTK under 1 second for the first time
During 2 week absence official forums demanded lootbox store deleted with occasional cry for director of D2 fired
Bungie gets back, tries to pretend nothing happened on the forums and patched laser fest
Rage does not subside
Vague promises of communication that doesn't happen
Have not done one fucking livestream since before DLC because people called them out on the lies they spewed in it
Most of the youtubers that kept up interest for Destiny abandon ship, right around the same time one of their diversity hire writers excitedly declared the background lore everyone loved was just 'folklore' and likely to be retconned
Decay is so bad stock analysts warning clients to avoid Activision because D2 has received so much negative review
A forbes writer has shat on bungie every nearly every month since D2 came out
D2 was not the amazing esport twitch monster they built it to be, in fact player base is down 90% across all platforms
This is a worse decline than CoD games see in an almost 12 month period
Bungie continues snail pace patch cycle, shows of road map of plans for first time in four years, suspected they have fifteen people keeping D2 running and making the remaining DLC
Upper management snots coke and plays monster hunter world while the rest of their 700 employees slaving away at Destiny 3 on tools that take 8 hours to boot
Forums went into shut down mode, you must have completed the free trial version minimum to post on virtually all boards
Ancient bungie fans rage, abandon ship, and incidently the bungie defense force dries up to maybe twenty people
Updates constantly rolled back
Updates are all shit that was in Destiny 1 - the lackluster release version made in a year
Destiny 3 is happening in 1-2 years
Redditors still suck bungie's dick but not as much as you'd think for the canada of the internet
And on tuesday the second DLC hits, the player population rises, and then it tanks even harder the following day as everyone that bought a season pass uninstalls the game for the final time. The one good thing about D2 is it has made a few thousand more people refuse to preorder and buy season passes.

Thanks for writing that user, really appreciate it.
This condenses the absolute state of games with redditmorons trying to make their favourite dopamine dispenser a "cult game". And devs being so shit, that they promise ANYTHING that those loud retards want, just to get that little boost on sales. And obviously they can't deliver on those promises, because they where based on what "fans" want, not what can be delivered.
This is not how you make a MP-game live a long life. This is how you dress up a dead corpse and shock it repeatedly to make it do a twitchy encore dance for the fans to pay for.
I don't why the fuck this happens, but it's depressing. Fuck.

Sea of Thieves is what happens when you have retarded liberals who scream about diversity and safety and "Clean fun" all day long

You get an extremely bland and hollow game with no content where the goal is to have "Fun" and there is absolutely no motivation or goal to be competitive because there is no penalties for losing and there is no benefits to winning

I'm surprised games like Fortnite and PugB are even made today, more impressive is Fortnite battle royale was created simply because EPIC games was literally circling the drain and they all but threw out their kid friendly zombie horde mode tower defense game and instead embraced players drive to be the best of the best in a game and it's making them mad fucking cash now

Players want to be competitive, they want to surmount challenges in games, but when you have absolute fucking retards like David Cage making games and being thrown literally hundreds of millions of dollars to make his shit and he's openly running around telling publications "I hate Game Overs, I feel players who get game overs is a fault of the game developers and not the player"

Look at the shitfest revolving around Lawbreakers, a game that came from one of the top FPS/TPS shooter designers of this century turned into a giant cuckfest of "Diversity" and "Fun" and "Social Interaction experience". It flopped so hard the shock waves it's crater created is still resonating throughout the entire industry as a giant wake up call that SJW's can and will kill your entire fucking company

Also guy the problem with Destiny 2 outside of SJW devs who refused to put player chat in their games for fear bad words might make it to their impressionable minds and they wouldn't vote Hillary in 2020 is that Bungie blew literally most of the BILLION dollars they got from Activision with the first game and it's DLC, and you're correct that D2 is being manned/developed by a skeleton crew at Bungie to patch the game and to create content. The shit with the SJW writers etc might have had serious impact of the Destiny player base IF PEOPLE WERE STILL FUCKING PLAYING IT TO REACT TO IT

Seriously, I think the PC playerbase last checked was hovering somewhere around 90K people, and consoles is a literal ghost town and all these upcoming changes is a mad dash to bring back at least some D1 players, but when D2 content is so fucking safe and boring nobody fucking cares because the challenge gamers crave will never be found in it so they all went to Fortnite/PubG/Back to Overwatch

End result is Destiny 3 Bungie has maybe 100 million or so to play with for it's development, which is why D2 was such a blatant attempt lootbox attempt because they were so desperate for revenue, and I guarantee either during Destiny 3's development or soon after it's release Bungie will be near bankrupt/be bankrupt and get bought up

It won't ever be repaired.
the amount of information collected on all of it will always be available, and in turn, people will always nurture a rightful hate against the industry because of it.

Leftists aren't even 10% of the population, user.
Never believe in the lies of the media.
They are a small minority that is only speak loudly and all the time.
And they manage that because of the deformed kikes backing them up.
It is even more idiotic, as developers actively spoke against 90% of their customers, to appease 10%.
See the current bankruptcy of Toys R Us.
the deformed kike that owned it is even dead (cheers), but the idiot donated to Planned Parenthood, to increase the amount of abortions in America. The result: less children, so less toys sold. Then, bankuptcy.

Which is a good thing.
The giant control that the 2 big ones had will end, and there is chance of newr comics being made by talented people (that is, White People) and maybe we will be able to get hid of this jew infested medium and recreate it to our tastes, without characters made by jews to turn people into leftists.

Any company that grows too much will actively fight to end competition. That is why it is imperative to never let smaller, still good companies to grow too much. But only after taking down the giants.
True competition can only last while everyone is small. And they must be kept small, forever.

This.
There is no such blind idolatry.
If they always keep going back to this failed industry, it is because they are interested in it's propaganda potential, and not the quality itself.
They are not fans. They are hired militia.

Soyboy exposed.
They cold have FOUGHT.
-Refusing to buy.
-Organizing massive boycotts.
-Going to cons to denounce leftists.
-Register on camera every single panel while attacking leftists on them and putting them all against the wall by pointing out their bullshit.
The list goes on. No human being shall pity the weak.


"It would not work."
And that is why you fail and why you don't deserve any pity.

And both are reason enough to act against them and make sure that everything ends for them, so they can never return to neither medium.
"Mature" is just a code for "subversion approved by jews".
No entertainment needs to be mature.
All MUST be fun, and that is all.
If any fanbase purses "maturity", it is guaranteed that it already has jews and leftists infesting it, and their pursue is just part of their agenda, and not a will to improve the medium.

Not passing any judgement, but I was watching DSP play Sea of Thieves I am addicted to failure and it does seem more competitive than I expected. I watched him get annihilated by some cheeky crew that camped outside of the outpost he started on as soon as he left the dock on his first quest. Then at another point he was completely cucked out of his objective (find chickens on any given island) by yet another crew who got there first and stole all of the chickens. It seems like they wanted to take Guns of Icarus and make an adventure game out of it. The quests seem like they get old after a few hours of play time though, and it is POWERFULLY padded with sailing time. Like, even worse than Windwaker.

You can steal loot and supplies off other players' ships, if they have any. I believe you can also find random small loot on islands, but you can only get the big stuff by taking quests or raiding fortresses when they're randomly "ready". The real problem is that loot only does two things: let you buy purely cosmetic items, and let you buy more quests to get more loot. There's nothing to progress towards, except getting more lucrative quests.

So what did you expect? Holy fuck! Your post sounds like a facebook blog. This is an anonymous illegal cockfighting registration phonescam, so be more specific. Also:
POWERFULLY padded with sailing time.
Is best choice the devs ever made, since this is a multiplayer game. You make it sound like you want to teleport to next encounter, you fucking retard.
Extended sailing time is the best way to make this game feel like a real game. It's fucking atrocious shit, and cannot be fixed. But let's pretend for a paragraph.

On a long journey, boredom makes people do the stupidest things. Like gamble all their money with other crewmates. Maybe try that super hard crafting that takes 3 minutes simonsays in game. Maybe just fix the ship and train sword fighting. I'm pulling this shit out of my arse, so there might really not be anything like this to do in the actual game.

Unlike the beta, the blunderbuss is unlocked from the start. You only get the one type of sword, too. You have absolutely nothing to build towards. All clothing is cosmetic. All the different buckets, compasses, mugs, etc, are purely cosmetic. You don't even buy better ships. You're automatically given a ship when you log in, the size of which is determined by how large a crew you're rolling with. You only get a full-sized galleon of a ship if you have a four-man crew.

That's why I gave up on Western writers for the most part. They're so busy trying to outdo each other in the pretentious and cuck department they forget to write a fun story.

Best example is Joe Abercrombie, who is the living embodiment of the typical Western writer. All the characters in his books are disgusting people you can't help but hate, they constantly fuck up, they constantly engage in morally repugnant acts, there is no moment in the story you can actually sympathize with them, cheap profanity is everywhere so the people reading this trash can pretend they're consuming mature literature, scatology is also a prevalent element so you know he's a Jewish golem writing Jewish propaganda. What's the fucking point of bothering with something like this? I'm not a masochist, I want to experience stories that are fun, not this depressing filth.

I watched him get annihilated by some cheeky crew
user, a fucking paraplegic toddler could win against DSP.

I get to say you're wrong if I ignore context
Alright, you are being intentionally daft then. We were talking about spawn camping remember? Even Rainbow Shit Siege, a game which is "supposed" to be competitive tries to mitigate this (and still fails, but of course they try).
You seem to think I am talking about Counter Strike levels of competition even though my posts clearly indicate that I was not. Again, I was expecting an extremely streamlined game with "wasting the players time" (losing all your quest items, dying due to circumstances mostly out of your control) being forbidden. Instead it's the opposite, the game apparently seeks to "maintain" players by wasting as much of their time as humanly possible with no reward. This game isn't going to appeal to anyone.

Jason Long

That is true. But in fact this reminded me of an old iPad, Android, something-game, maybe over 5 years ago, that had pretty much the same art style and same game play. It was obviously 2D, but looked and played really well. It was a lot simpler too, but the main gameplay was that you formed a crew, got a ship, went on a lootfest, and fought other lootfesting crews.
I think the game was fairly popular, atleast for awhile. If you know this game, tell me the name! It had some really good agdg-design choices in it.

Sorry about this. Your post was just so coherent, and well articulated that it got my eye bleeding.

The act of preventing another player from progressing is still a competitive act, even if it's the bare minimum. There is competition in the game; it just barely matters. All it means is that some players will need to play longer, to get their cosmetics, after being raided by another crew.

Reminder that this is a full-priced game, where you can't even freely customize your character, that they plan to add microtransactions to, if I heard correctly.

Diversity is definitely a reason why it flopped (among many retarded decisions) but they did not shy away from skill (see: "skilled af"). In fact, they tried to market this as one of the main things that made Lawbreakers better than Overwatch etc. That said, I agree that a non-competitive game design is one reason why Sea of Thieves is shit.

I have abandoned western entertainment completely.

What you described is pretty much all of current western literary "works" (propaganda). The same with Martin's Game of Thrones, and Bernard Cornwell's deconstruction of classics to turn them into scatfests with rampant hate for beauty and filled with repugnant characters.

Lucas was the sole reason for the Fall of Lucas Arts.
Even though Disney is making worse Star Wars movies than George's prequels, he still is a literal man-child that only cares for presentation and visuals. He stormed meetings and demanded rewrites of plots to include dead characters fighting in different timelines just because he liked their visuals, all to accommodate his deranged mind and his need for "cool looking characters fighting together".

This.
And that is reason enough for that industry to end completely.

The Vita memory card is a good recent example. The absurd price was probably one of the biggest things that held back the system in its mid and late life. There's a price point where even someone as stupid as the average consumer will refuse to pay, and Sony clearly crossed that line. Combine that with localizers almost always choosing to release digital only in the west, and it's no wonder the system never went anywhere. The icing on the cake: rather than realize the Vita failed because Sony had priced themselves out of the tastes of the average consumer, they assumed it was because people preferred smartphone games.

Nintendo deciding to stick with cartridges for the N64 and the restrictive contracts cost them a shitload of developers.
If the N64 had used CDs, we wouldn't have all the romhacks like SM64O or Star Road, memory/value/frame hacks and exploits, or gimmicky accessories like the Transfer Pak.
It didn't sell, but it was a blessing for autists nonetheless.

Get your entire roster and plans leaked by someone who gets fed up with your shit
Bribe and pay off most of the SoCal fighting game community, getting one of the biggest scumbags to test your game and work for you
<Make said scumbag pretend like he knew nothing about Jedah and other characters getting leaked at events
Have your PR guy stupidly post a video that reveals your scummy plans to take over EEESPORZ and streams that will fuck over many, many small tourneys and even big ones that supported you like Evo
Literally do nothing about the ugly as fuck models like Chun-Li until the last minute
Piss on your fans even more by hiring Ashley Burch, putting no Japanese audio or original tracks in the game, and small sjw shit here and there while degrading characters like Arthur
Use other shitty promos like unhealthy, nasty-ass food recipes to shill your shitty game as "GAWEMR FUELZ"
Use the WWE for a shilling event where one of them calls out the tester for helping her coworker on stream (even if it's a work, it was horrible to watch, and it made Booley look bad)
Now announce a special tourney where winners get special perks for the major
While your're at it, make the disc-locked characters immediate useable in tourneys, giving the Socal crew a bigger advantage in tourneys with no one getting the time to learn them
To add salt to the wound, the tournament events are a complete joke thanks to bullshit rules, and more than half of the qualifiers got rigged by the SoCal FGC and a Sjw bitch who tried to threaten a scene when she got caught red-handed with her friend
Get a Capcuck fanboy site to attack critics everywhere including Youtube, and then have said site hire a Thot-slut writer to attack another gaming community to boost MvCI's sales, giving no shits it is now the Kotaku of the FGC
Your tester is caught with a completed copy of the game he had from day one while others had to wait on the rest of the roster being disc-locked content
Now piss everyone off even more by showing off the Donte outfit that's somehow better than default Dante (like they tried to add Donte instead of Dante)

Don't forget about BLM Panther's cancelled comics where BLM Panther encouraged blacks to kill cops and rape non-blacks, even killing their rape victims for muh social justice.

Technology wasn't just one of Neopet's problems. The whole staff was all kinds of fucked up thanks to Adam and Donna being corrupted, scummy cunts. I remember a goon who dealt with the team giving me all kinds of stories on how they purposely cheated players out of prizes while giving their "friends" the best stuff and ranks.

The media is shielding BLM Panther from any backlash despite his racist comics from last year. Is anyone even buying that piece of shit's mercandise? I don't see any ass-hole walk around with BLM Panther shit despite sjws are shielding the movie from any backlash and criticism, and comic stores are forced to put his shit up front. I hate that fucker almost as much as I hate Ms Mudslime, and he wasn't even a good super hero 20-30 years ago.

Could also well be that admittance to one's own faults is seen as a weakness, rather than a sign of wanting to improve.

On that note, one of the few good things SCEA did for the Vita out here was finally just ask owners what games they actually wanted to have out here, resulting in them pressuring particular companies to bring the games that got high requests over. Too bad Bamco didn't care to keep 8-4 on anywhere near as tight a leash as prior when it came to Tales of Hearts R (being that Bamco really didn't care to bring the game over in the first place, even on the DS years prior), and just let 8-4 have their way with the script instead.

I know kids are prone to playing M-rated shit anyhow and parents are lazy, but I'd think that game would surely have enough of a reputation to keep it out of a literal toy store. But that's just me.

Pffft, like Toys R Us ever followed their rules. They wouldn't put Hatred or DoA Voleyball on their shelves (which makes sense being a family store), but adds DmC: FUCK YOU EDITION or even Diablo 2 (which makes no sense with D2 being a M-rated game).

I also forgot to add that they hired one of the best UMvC3 guys to work with their fighting game division, and all he did was piss everyone off with wonderful gems like, "Who remebers the X-Men?," or, "They're just fucntions;" despite the functions he shilled played nothing like the functions people wanted (Wolvering and Magneto). Oh yea, said guy got fired after MvCI flopped hard only to work at Arcsys now.

Anyway, while I'm bringing up Capcom:
Announce SFV
Announce you'll cut down on disc-locked shit, players can earn costumes and characters
Announce a promising roster with interesting new characters
Tell everyone it will help new players get into the game
Now give the middle finger to new players by switching to EESPORZ and proplayers by adding mechanics new players don't care about
Make one beta test after another, blowing off complaints
Now cater to Sjws by censoring your characters during development
Release a half-asseed, incomplete piece of shit with ugly models/ So much for betas.
Add a Survival mode no one likes to play
now give the middle finger to pro-players with a shitty game that has input delay, and add stages that can't be used in tourneys
Instead of fixing the game's glaring issues like Ken's model, add more sjw-approved censorship by chaning a nipple render and ruin Juri's outfit while making Ibuki as ugly as Ken
Have a schedule to announce new content only to fuck that up
Hype Alex and FANG only to make them the worst characters in the game
Announce you'll sell shitty, overpriced tourney packs for events and more microtransations to "fix" survival mode
As a response to the backlash and modders making better character models than you, give your customers and fans fucking rootkits for not kissing your ass
Watch your game die as you cater to Sjws, and Japan hates everything about your game
Announce that season 2 will "fix things" after pros are starting to bitch about SFV, and Japan is calling it Duty Fighter V on Twitter
Make it worse with shitty new characters no one likes, and force old new characters no one likes down everyone's throats in the meta (Rashid the Mudslime Rapefugee and Laura being top-tiers with Necalli)
Announce an "updated" Steam version and an open beta
Fuck up the betas, blame your fans, and tell them to make their routers vulnerable so they can test your shitty beta
The updated version is somehow worse than original version
Announce "Arcade Edition"
Retract your comment about not making another disc for the game
Make the UI worse than the orignial UI, and make the meta even more retarded
Make the new characters just as ugly Ken
Keep fucking with Alex, Juri, and FANG fans
It's fucking amazing. This company needs to die.

The best thing about MvCI is that you just know they were planning on milking the fuck out of the game based on the layout of the roster with the last DLC characters.
More marvel than capcom characters without shifting the character around to make it somewhat symmetrical like they did for MvC1.

Maybe some people would rather play against thinking humans than AI that will do the same thing over and over again since there's an actual element of random to it. Not to mention skill levels vary so you can either stomp or be in an uphill battle (something e-sports MMR has ruined)

I don't even play pubg, and yeah, every multiplayer alive these days is either aids, or the community has played it so hard to death it's a cesspool of meta. It's just the attitude on here when it comes to multi-player is so fucking retarded. There was a time when multiplayer didn't suck.

The point of a boycott is to tell people they should stop buying from a company, or not buy a product. A game having a shitty release like ME:A is a perfect example of this: the game didn't fail because there was some organized "boycott" tell people not to buy it, it failed because it was an awful game and people got wind of it before release.

The only thing similar to a boycott I can think of in recent memory is Battlefront 2017, and even then the loot box predation was so bold and poisonous it was effectively the same thing.

China has more affirmative action bullshit than the US. You need a full score on the Chinese SAT basicly to get into a a school in Beijing as an ethnic han. You get in as a minority just by writting your damn name on the paper in Xinjiang.
Also the government gives subsidies to ethnic minorities.
At the end of the day there is the Party and the continuation of the Revolution. The companies are just a part of the Party, a very lucrative part with fleshy replaceable parts running it.
That is incorrect. China is like the Iluminatti portrayed in Deus Ex. There is always one main person that is holding up the big players in the industries. The second that person falls, his entire entrouge is purged.
AKA what happened with Hainan airlines.
If nothing else I believe they will be spared our fate.
Xi is taking the new Socialisim meme to try and replace America as the world power. Also they made some mistakes in Deng's reforms. Mainly allowing western culture to be a thing there His traditional culture bullshit ain't working for anyone but himself. Everything is still about america this, america that and how it's better than chink shit Which is pure bullshit, the America Qin's I've seen suck. It's too late already for them.
i hope I live long enough to see the chinks show the niggers what merciful masters they are.
What is confucious values.jpg

Inb4 you don't understand China
I do, I am an ameri Chink who's lived there for half a decade, and also read many a chinese classics. For fucks sake I know more traditional cultural values then some Chinese themselves. I'll still take American as my identity because we have guns, and guns= the ability die fighting for values you believe in than rather be bent over backwards on a table all day

Their government is going to do something in 2020 to consolidate the databases and credit system.
Xi proposed using "political power to solve economic issues". Just look at Hainan airlines. Also, you are forced to use your version of the SSN to sign up for anything. On top of that, the government can arbitrarily ban you from all games if they wanted to, censor all your telecommunications, and track you down anywhere in the last 24 hours and find you within 7 minutes provided you live somewhere that has a population larger than 1 and has a road. You literally have to live in the fucking jungles in Yunnan to be away from the gov and they can still find you.Case in point that arms factory making black market RPGs and helis.
Also Xi probably plans to replace the RMB at somepoint with a cap to the amount you can turn in cause Chinese like to store money in hand.

Welcome to the brave new world. Soon enough, we will all be brothers and sisters in this hell hole. Good luck, commander.

People make fun of Heavy Rain, but the amount of effort that went into that game was simply amazing - Fun fact. If you have the "international version" set it to French.

Other games would simply make you replay the entire scene until you win.
Heavy Rain has a failure animation for every single sequence in the game that is just as seamless as the success animations.

I like Heavy Rain because it's intended as an interactive movie from the get go and everyone knows what's supposed to be.

While not big enough to be considered legendary, wasn't the last guitar hero game a major flop?
came out when everyone was bored with music games
shitty "playing in front of a real crowd!" gimmick
shitty song selection
including songs from genres with little to no guitar, such as hip hop and dubstep

I went to a Toys R Us last friday to see if they had anything worth buying in their going out of business sale and the electronics department was completely ransacked except for some copies of that Dropmix board game, at least two dozen copies of Guitar Hero World Tour, and at least 30 copies of Sunset Overdrive

deciding to use a weird format for the Gamecube also cost them developer support.
I'm sure the gamecube's weird-ass controller didn't help much, either. I would imagine it was a pain to take a game that used the ps2 or xbox controller and try to make it work with a controller that has fewer buttons and a weird layout.

I dread what EA is going to do to Titanfall 3.

the population is always divided around 50-50 right?
I've seen polls where they pick a bunch of random people and ask them to describe themselves as left-leaning, moderate, or right-leaning and they usually showed something like 20% left, 40% moderate, and 40% right. Though to be fair, polls do seem to be more hit than miss, so who knows.

It's because leftists have gone so far down their rabbit hole of insane, degenerate bullshit that the harder they try to strawman someone as the most evil right winger of all time, they just end up making well adjusted people with good arguments and reasonable views.

Dawn of War
Initial success as great little RTS
Changes to completely different cover-based squad game for second game.
Changes again to MoBA styled shit for third game.
Everyone wonders where the customers went.

And my favourite story:

Dev tells a story about working for Sega in America in the early 90s.
Money is flowing everywhere, it's like working in a themepark.
Sega still courting celebrities, like they did MJ.
Sega CD is about to come out.
One day a musician is getting a tour of the place, no-one thinks of it too much.
Musician starts chatting to some of the devs when the guide is off doing something else.
He's nodding his head as he's explained the Sega CD and it's benefits.
Sort of the same graphics as the Genesis, but with all this extra space for video and sound.
"Oh, like you can put actual songs on it rather than midi tunes - I get it".
Musician goes on "You know what would be a great idea - if you made a music game now that you can store all these songs and lyrics"
"Players could tap along with the music and score points - wouldn't need a lot of graphical power since most of the hook is the music"
"Since you're already making all these weird controllers - guns, movement shit - you could make a controller that's like a musical instrument"
"I mean, the people buying this are already a few hundred dollars into this, they'd be up for a fancy new controller".
"Oh well, see you"

25 years later
"Oh shit, that guy basically handed us Guitar Hero".

haven't heard of the guitar hero thing, nana on-sha made the first music games on the PS1 because there was a hardware quirk that allowed for disc swapping during the game whereas something like the saturn would return you to the bios once the disc lid opened up. The PS1 would continue to play whatever it had in memory until it needed to retrieve something to advance. PS2 even works this way with plenty of games. Nana On-Sha observed this and pitched vib ribbon to sony, saying they could load the game program into the memory and stream songs from CDs so people could play their music CDs to make levels in vib ribbon. Games like Monster Rancher also used it.

What I find really intriguing is the fact that in the not-so-distant-past, say in the 70s and 80s the villains were clearly defined. (((Hollywood))) portrayed them as the stereotypical over the top evil Nazis hellbent on conquering the world while indiscriminately killing civilians and raping women in the process. Some white guy was the hero, saving the day and getting a beautiful girl as a reward. You can argue that's the most common male fantasy and our inherent desire; to be the good guy, the save your tribe and get the girl. It's not the case anymore. Now the average White is the enemy.

got any proof of any of that shit? It seems kind of unlikely that a bunch of people whom fap to coloured ponies and watch a kids show like a religion would not turn out to be controlled SJW rabid leftists. Like…basically any fandom.

Hate to agree but this is more or less true. They're all faggots but they're devotion to autism is jaw dropping at times. Even the earliest days had some insanely fucking devoted shit. Also pics are spoilered for a reason. You've been warned.
There's a difference between MLP fans on tumblr and MLP fans on image boards. Unless you see stuff like pics related on tumblr. I wouldn't know I guess.

Let's make a sequel, but shit on everything that people every liked or respected about the previous game
It's not even as good as that; Other Mother Fucker retcons every chronologically post-1 'Troid. Sakamoto's version of events is: Space Pirates are dumb animals when they have no Mother Brain to order them around, so no firthy gajin Prime series, and no Super either.

The delicious irony is, this means Fusion, the thematic sequel to Other M, can't fucking happen. Other M's plot retardation extends far, FAR beyond this, though; somebody will probably have the screencaps with the dozens of plotholes and inconsistencies. It's a fucking circus of how NOT to do videogame story.

Cut to the last couple years, and Nintendo remakes 2 and announces Prime 4, slamming the door on Sakamoto's fantasy of Samus being his pure waifu who goes to pieces after seeing Ridley, a monster she's torn like twelve new assholes for.

that's some fucking dedication…has any other (((fandom))) gotten anything going of any such degrees?Jesus lad.

Now im curious what separates bronies from other fandoms. Is it something we can harness? Can we steer it into something good? Is it just autism?

I see complaints about the GameCube controller all the time, I never had a problem with it. In fact, the GC controller is probably the most comfortable to hold in my opinion.

He probably meant the ABXY layout being really nonstandard. It's really comfortable to hold.

New companies are who make quality games benefit.
And these exist? Mostly I'm just seeing the leftists/retards/marketers with connections jump ship to ruin another company and everyone else leaves the industry.

I will say that wasn't entirely wrong about the initial inroads of MLP having a subversive undercurrent. It's just that it didn't take. The "pegasisters" were hoping that the newly minted bronies would become good little gender nonconforming allies; Things did not go as planned.
Fun fact: the failure of bronies to flip politically and socially was the underlying reason why Ponibooru was taken down by its admin.
