fine, I'll just, um, yeah ... I'll just leave this here ...Talonsin said:I understand game developers are working and need to make money but at what point are the drivers for the company (the investors and CEO) getting greedy?
Activision - NET Revenue last year over 3 billion
EA - NET revenue last year of almost a billion
When will it ever be enough?
The destruction of independent and creative studios continues. How many now lie in the garbage heap beneath the EA towers?
What independent studio are you talking about, when they released dead space 1 the studio was called EA redwood shores.
That's awful.

People just don't care about right and wrong anymore and I find that sad.
That aside, it isn't good business to "care" -- a hyperbolic word used in regard to financial ventures, to say the least -- about a project that isn't financially worth the investment. The job of any business is to make money for themselves and their investors. If they could make enough to offset the cost of hosting and updating for vanilla servers, they would without one single doubt.
I have no criticism towards Blizzard on this topic.
Interestingly enough, I'm in the opening round of defending one of my trademarks I've held for over twenty five years against a big US corporation who wants to use it for one of their new products that doesn't have an overlap against mine. My opening response is constructive, I'm worried they're going to try steal it through muscle and attrition.
We'll see how the negotiations go.
I don't have a lot of empathy towards Big Corps. With they're $muscle$ they can and do steal IP's.
Torval said:I don't care what other people call themselves, what they do, or what they play. I know what MMORPG means to me. I get how other MMOs and multiplayer games are different. I just don't care about those semantics because they don't affect how and what I play.
People on here can call D2 and MMO all they want and it means nothing to me because why should it? On the 24th I'm going to shoot things with other people online.
If you want to trip up over someone being wrong on the internet, it's your time. It still won't get you the game you want to play. Do you want to spend your energy telling people they're labeling things wrong or do you want to spend it getting games you like to play made? Maybe you've got time and energy for both. There is Pantheon and CU coming soonish. That should be encouraging.
