Star Citizen Runs Out of Cash? - briefly
(hx) 12:51 AM EDT - Oct,02 2015 - Post a comment / read (13)
The Escapist has posted an extensive article with insider information from nine former employees of Star Citizen, alleging a hostile work environment and that the company has burned through $82 Million of their $90 Million in crowdfunded revenue.
According to several former employees and industry veterans, the reason Star Citizen is so popular is because it's never been done. And, they continue, the reason it has never been done is because it can't be done - at least, not with $90 million.

"$90 million for what he's pitching, even with a competent leadership, you couldn't do," CS1 wrote. "The thing you have to remember about Chris Roberts is that, before this, he hadn't made a game in 12 years. He has no concept of what can and can't be done today with that amount of money, or for a game like this. Chris Roberts hadn't made a game in 12 years, and he was actively ignoring the input of people who have been in and a part of the industry that entire time."

To this, Roberts says: "How do you or they know this? Which employees said this and what makes them qualified to make that judgement? I know it's what Derek Smart loves to say but he couldn't make a good game with $200m so I don't think his opinion matters. Outside of that, no employee beyond me and a few other key people who are leading Star Citizen would have the appropriate information and overview to make any judgement about the cost of the total project. Secondly, the company uses additional sources of funding such as tax incentives, marketing and product partnerships, but we do not discuss these issues in public for obvious reasons. We always keep a healthy cash reserve and operate our business prudently based on the incoming revenue. It should tell you something that we are actually increasing our global headcount not decreasing it."

Over concerns that he is not responding to advice from workers, Roberts writes "I have a very strong vision for Star Citizen, which is why I believe we have been backed to the level we have. I have no doubt what we can achieve. Now that most of the base technology is in place we will be able to get with the Large World and MultiCrew milestone a game experience that will allow you to seamlessly go from foot, to boarding a fully realized spaceship with your friends, take off, fly thousands or millions of km in space, exit your ship in EVA and explore derelict space stations or wrecks, engage in FPS combat, return to your ship, engage in space combat and return to your home base to share the tales of your adventures with your other friends. All with no leading screens, all at AAA first person fidelity that you can't even get on a next gen console. This is the core of the Squadron 42 and Star Citizen experience that we will continue to iterate on and add content to, but even the first release will be more "game" than most commercially released space games. In terms of not listening to the advice of people that have worked in the industry that is not true. I have a very strong executive management and design team with huge experience in AAA titles that all contribute to the decision making of the company. I listen to everyone - from our top level all the way through to our QA testers and community giving feedback on gameplay and features. I care and want to build the best game possible. Now that doesn't mean I agree with everyone's opinions and feedback as a project director I owe it to the community to stay true to my vision and pick the things that I think will make the game better which can occasionally lead to people feeling disgruntled, which I suspect is the root of this "concern"."

The popular consensus among most of the people who reached out is that Chris Roberts is not intentionally a con man. "He doesn't set out in the morning to screw anybody over. He's just incredibly arrogant," CS2 stated.

Street Fighter V Zangief Trailer - movie
(hx) 02:08 PM EDT - Oct,01 2015 - Post a comment
Revealed today at the IgroMir event in Russia, the ‘Red Cyclone’ has muscled his way into Street Fighter V! A popular mainstay within the legendary series and the most prominent wrestler within it, Zangief has made many previous appearances while fighting for 'Mother Russia.' Those lucky enough to be at IgroMir will have the opportunity to play a brand new demo build featuring Zangief, along with all of the previously confirmed characters: Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Cammy, Vega, M. Bison, Birdie, Charlie Nash, Necalli, R. Mika, Rashid and Karin. When it comes to raw strength, not many of the World Warriors can compete with Zangief. Training day and night, he believes that the only way to victory is to have a body complete with perfect muscles. Due to his intense training, which includes wrestling bears, Zangief is able to lift even the heaviest opponents with ease! In Street Fighter V, Zangief shows off the results of his training through his newfound V-Skill (Iron Muscle) and V-Trigger (Cyclone Lariat). But, these are just the tip of the iceberg, as Zangief has many more new tactics in store for any opponent that challenges him and his raw power.

The company plans to add more games each week, but declined to mention any forthcoming titles.

A few newer games are also available, which Nvidia classifies as "Buy and Play Instantly." You pay full price for the privilege of streaming these games, which include The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt ($59.99), MotoGP15 ($39.99) and Saints Row IV ($19.99). Nvidia says it's still in negotiations to add Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor.
Syndrome Announcement Trailer - movie
(hx) 01:12 PM EDT - Sep,30 2015 - Post a comment / read (3)
You wake up on a spaceship, dazed and confused from the effects of cryosleep, and begin to search for the rest of the crew. Where could they have gone? All too suddenly, you discover that most of them are dead, and those still alive are... changed.

With Syndrome, Camel 101 takes first person survival horror back to its roots. In the dark confines of the ship, defending yourself is difficult and not always possible. There are a few weapons scattered about, but nowhere near enough ammunition to deal with all the transformed monstrosities.

To survive and uncover the events that took place while you were asleep, you can't always face your enemies head on; sometimes hiding and breathing as noiselessly as possible is your best course of action.

Careful resource management is a key part of Syndrome, but so is learning your enemies' behavior. What will attract their attention? What will give you a few precious seconds to pass by undetected? Take note¯each misstep could be deadly.

Hitman launches March 11 - briefly
(hx) 04:59 PM EDT - Sep,29 2015 - Post a comment / read (6)
Io Interactive has released new details on their new episodic Hitman game, announcing that it will launch on March 11th, 2016. This initial release will feature three locations - Paris, Sapienza and Marrakesh - featuring six campaign missions. Moreover, 800 targets will be available in the game's Contracts mode. IO Interactive will release one new sandbox location per month in April, May and June. Each location will come with additional missions, signature kills and more Contracts targets. Furthermore, the game's live content - that consists of IO Interactive's live, time-limited targets, weekly IOI developed Contracts and promoted content built by fans - will start in March.
On March 11th 2016, we will release the initial launch content, which contains three locations - Paris, Sapienza and Marrakesh - featuring six campaign missions. For Contracts mode, you’ve got a combined pool of around 800 targets to craft your devious Contracts from, which means we’re expecting fantastic things.

Following March, we will release one new sandbox location per month in April, May and June. Each location will come with additional missions, signature kills and more Contracts targets – and of course new disguises, weapons and ways of taking out your target. April takes you to Thailand, May will see you visiting the United States of America and June sends you across the globe to Japan.

In addition, the live content will start in March. This consists of our live, time-limited targets, weekly IOI developed Contracts and promoted content built by the very best of you out there. Because, let’s face it, millions of you played and created fantastic Contracts for Absolution and we’re betting you’ll do even better this time around with so many targets and such complex locations.
I'd really want IO Interactive to succeed with Hitman, but I cannot see it happen with this model they are going for.
