Holy crap is right.  Until now we've just seen bad business decisions, but that's outright fraud.

I don't buy the needed-3-million-to-break-even number for a second.  That's just politics.  The statement was made by the governer of Rhode Island, who was not governer when the deal was made and always opposed it.  It's a completely unrealistic figure if you think about it.  Given the typical return on games (after factoring out all the middlemen), 3 million still should have been about enough to cover the entire $75 million loan the company was given.  Which might be what the governer was talking about, but most of that money wasn't spent on KoA.

A whole twelve minutes of gameplay here.  It's going through a complete stage.

Honestly I wasn't too excited about this game at first, but I really enjoyed that clip.  Feels very Sting.

I don't like the animation or the music...but I don't buy games for their openings.

This is really sad.  I enjoyed KoA and thought that the Amalur world had potential (though to be honest KoA didn't use it well...it was mostly fun for the combat).  But the amount of money they apparently have been pouring into this unreleased MMORPG is nuts...and now Big Huge Games is going down with the ship.

Well, it would at the very least be better that Battleship.


This should not be the standard for anything.

It's seriously the latter.  Consider your mind blown.

The top comment on that video is right:  Kill it with fire!

Ugh, I remember thinking this article was asinine when I saw it on Crunchyroll...why are we talking about it here?

Which is not to say that there aren't problems with JRPGs but it's not a good list.
2365  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: New X-COM game that's (*gasp*) a strategy game! on: May 22, 2012, 11:05:50 AM
It's got a release date!  October 9th.  I'm kind of surprised by how fast it's been since this game was announced.

The Yakuza games are 100% RPGs as far as I'm concerned.  I know Sega doesn't market them as such, but they are.  I mean come on, you have leveling up, new skills and abilities, weapons, armor, items, exploration, side quests, random encounters...come on.  What more do you want?
2367  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game: Atelier Meruru on: May 21, 2012, 12:43:01 PM
There already is an Ayesha topic.  Shame on you, Dice ;)
2368  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: disappointed of new generation rpgs..... on: May 18, 2012, 03:09:37 AM
And play Valkyria Chronicles.  OK, it's definitely anime-style but it's not trying to be cute.

I decided to take up powerbocking for some reason.

WTF is powerbocking, you ask?  It's what the folks in this video are doing.  Though I imagine in my case there's going to be a lot more falling down and injuring myself.

Instead of 'trying to make new games match/top VII' how about they just, I don't know, worry about generally making a 'great' game 'by modern standards' for a change?

They did, it's called Type-0.  Crikey that game needs to be localized...
