  2. EA: "I struggle with the perception that we're just a bunch of bad guys" Here is a hint -- EA used to be a publisher where I would buy several games from every year. Some of my favourite games of all time were from EA (Think 688 Attack Sub, The Bard's Tale Series, Chuck Yeager's Advanced Flight Trainer, Command & Conquer, Dead Space Series, Desert Strike, James Pond, Mass Effect Series, Mirror's Edge, M.U.L.E., NFS (the good ones), NHL '94, Peggle, Plants vs. Zombies, Populous series, Syndicate, Titanfall 2, Wings of Glory, etc.) I've been playing your great single player games for over 30 years. No all you want to make is GaaS online RPGs, FTP shooters and pay-to-win sports games. You took some of my favourite developers, and turned them into shit factories. This is why I hate you.

  4. Several people (myself included) have been throwing around the terms "AAA" and "Indie" pretty loosely. And I just came to the realization that I may not have the expertise to clearly to be able to easily bucket games. I'm appealing to the experts on D1P to help me! AAA Games I remember hearing this term in the mid-90s for the first time, and it clearly referred to big budget games that had large development budgets, and attracted significant marketing budgets. These are games like CoD, Madden, Battlefront, God of War. (Tangent: I recall, initially, anything not being "AAA" as being a "B" game -- I also remember the term "AA" being thrown around in the early oughts as well to classify smaller games.) Indie Games Indie games are games that are self funded by a developer, and typically developed outside of a major-publishing relationship. Questions I Have 1. Can a game be both AAA and Indie at the same time? (i.e. Cyberpunk 2077 which is a huge budget game, which is not being funded by a publisher) 2. Can a game move from being an Indie game to a AAA game later? (i.e. Minecraft which was developed an released by one person, but is now published by Microsoft) 3. Can a game be neither AAA or Indie? (i.e. A Way Out -- which was published by EA, but had a very low Budget) 4. Can a game have a publisher and still be Indie? (i.e. if it's published by Devolver Digital, it is Indie? How about Koei Tecmo? Atlus?) 5. Can a development studio make both AAA and Indie games? (i.e. Ninja Theory made DMC for publisher Capcom, and then developed and self-published Hellblade with a team of 15-20 people) 6. Should there be a different way of classifying games beyond just these two terms? If so, what are they? I need to be able to classify my games!
  5. Even though Remedy already owned the Alan Wake IP, Microsoft had retained the publishing rights until now.
  6. It's not been a deliberate thing, but I just realised the VAST majority of my Switch library is made up of indies. Just in 2019 I have bought Wargroove, Downwell, My Time at Portia, Crypt of the Necrodancer, Cadence of Hyrule, Friends of Ringo Ishihawa and Graveyard Keeper. I haven't bought a 'big budget' game since Pokemon Let's Go. Maybe it's my age, and these games often remind me of the stuff I played when I was younger? Maybe it's the convenience of the eshop? The stuff EA, Activision etc. is putting out just doesn't interest me these days it seems. Am I the only one?

  10. Hopefully they can handle this right. Hopefully Keanu Reeves is also a romance option or the Internet will go up in flames.
  11. My clan is pretty solid, we have 2 spots and I figured I'd see if anyone here wants to hop in. Everyone is pretty active, raids etc.. We get everything done but it all stays fairly casual. We use discord for all of our planning as well. Anyways figured I'd ask and see, let me know.

  16. I don't know what came over me after years of hating it, but I just bought DOOM Reboot for PS4 in some PSN flash sale because I just really wanted a shooter and well, it was cheap. It's...pretty fucking fun and addictive once I let go of it not being the Doom reboot I personally wanted and had been waiting for. It seriously pissed me off that I had been waiting something like 12 years for this when it was first released but with some distance, well, it's a really fun game overall. I still have my issues with quite a few aspects but again, I'm really hooked on it right now and really enjoying myself.
  17. I'm caveating the living hell out of this because the documentation was submitted as part of ongoing litigation and should therefore be viewed as inherently biased.
