RANDOM VIDEO GAME NEWS THREAD!

Recommended Posts

Figured we should throw one of these out instead of having a thread for each scrap of video game news that appears.

 

That said, here's something to start us off:

 

Looks like Infinity Ward is going to be in legal trouble with daddy over breach of contract. Not much is currently known, but there may be a shake up (which may lead to a Rockband/Guitar Hero esque battle... Medal of Honor doesn't count).

"Insubordination".

 

What, did the key people refuse to make another Call of Duty?

 

Well, sucks to be Infinity Ward. If they want to create the games they want, they should form a new company and stay independent.

Call of Duty games have become annoying. There's only so much of the same you can take.

 

Oddly enough the only one I liked since CoD2 was World at War. Modern Warfare was a boring pushover by comparison.

Haha, there's some interesting stuff leaking out. IW got raided by "corporate security". I swear, Activision is going to be MJ12 and Bob Page will be replaced by Bobby Kotick. :p

It seems that Activision is the new EA.

Kotick has since come out and retracted some of those statements.

 

As to IW. I think the problem is that their product has just become WAYYYY to over proliferated. Also their quality has dropped as Acti keeps trying to push the deadlines shorter and shorter.

Activision is now entering the cycle that EA went through about hm.... 5 years ago? The smug on Kotick's face will gradually be wiped over the new few years as Tony hawk/Call of Duty/Guitar hero all slump in sales. Blizzard is still going strong it seems, is Kotick really that dumb enough to intervene?

"There's only so much of the same you can take."

 

Not if it's good.

 

If I could have good sex all the time you better believe I'd take it all the time.

 

If I can play the same fun game all the time so be it.

 

And, if soemthing is bad, I'm done with it pronto.

You're quoting me here, and yet I'm not seeing the connection. Or did he retract statements made by other people? :p

Even EA didn't pull off **** like this back when it was evil.


"Alright, I've been thinking. When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade - make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don't want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"

Also, it appears that certain game companies have decided that if they're releasing something over steam, the game disk you get from them, doesn't actually have the game on it. You have to dl it from steam ANYWAY (SupCom2).

 

Seems like a stupid idea to me.

Wait, so what the hell does the game disk have?

 

This Steam fascism is starting to bug the hell out of me.

I actually bought it, and put it in. all it did was pull up a launcher and then send me into steam. NO install data, no game data.

NEW NEWS!

 

McGee is returning to Fairy Tails!

Including little red riding hood going bonkers with axes against wolves.

 

Also, Ocarina of Time for the 64 was beaten by a blind kid with help from a circle of gamers and the interwebs

(http://kotaku.com/5484361/with-the-help-of-friends-blind-man-beats-legend-of-zelda)

 

And in mild rumor news, they haven't said anything yet to us, but the Sony Rep who did our live preview of Heavy Rain a week before it came out stated that if Heavy Rain sold well (which it did, to the point sony said they have no interest in producing another console for about 5-6 years) they might start to make it a regular thing, and God of War 3 was mentioned.

I don't think it's possible in the physical universe to make a worse cyberpunk game than deus ex: iw was. Now that I've jinxed it, we'll see how things go. :banghead:

So, smoking is cool again? Heh, somebody said we'd be seeing that as a reaction to the anti-smoking craze we're having lately, in the nth-hand smoke thread.

 

As for JC (Paul? whatever), just one word: poser.

 

Here's how it's done:
