No doubt about that. Todd and Bethsoft are the masters of hype and spin. It's almost assured that if Todd says the game is improved and they listened to what people wanted, the opposite is what actually will show in the product. In fact, they've managed to dumb down Skyrim even further by further reducing the available stats and skill to around 15 and doing away with character classes all together all the while hyping the new visuals and finishing moves you can do with the weapons. And to further call Bethsoft out on their hypocrisy on JRPG's...I point to this gem.
Yep. Bethsoft is pretty much the sole reason the WRPG has devolved from games based on stats, character builds, and various outcomes to "OMG PEW PEW PEW!!, CHECK OUT DA GORE AND ASPLODING HEADS!!!" all thanks to Derpsoft and the Toddler. Also Todd has no room to stereotype JRPG's. Oblivion's story is all about saving the world from the big bad evil thing, and FO3 is all about finding your dad and having daddy issues. So yeah, Todds blowing smoke out of his butt. Honestly when people say he's a genius and master mind, I have to question their sanity.
Yep saw that as well. Good riddance I say. With his constant complaining about the Japanese industry and his odd fetish with "westernization", it was high time he left. I'm sure he will start his own studio can put out a generic FPS/TPS/bland action adventure title.
Ya got me me Sieg, but I noticed this on the PSU front page and it says that Ninja Theory is working on a new, unannounced new project. I find it amazing that ANYONE would want to work with them after the bombing of Enslaved (selling less that 200k world wide across both platforms) and they expect that new DMC to sell 5 million? Capcom is crazier than I thought! Once they lose a ton of money on it, then they'll learn....hopefully.
So...I rented Enslaved, well more like Enfailed. I've heard people say this game is like Uncharted and it is, just a sloppy, uglier (Thank you Unreal Engine for looking as *** ugly as ever), and some seriously clunky and slow combat. And this is who Capcom wants to make the new Devil May Cry? God speed DMC, we knew you well.
Totally. I can't imagine this game selling more than 100k in Japan, and I don't see Western gamers buying this either. Most of the reactions I have seen about this from Western gamers is either, 1). Capcom is stupid for changing it or 2). What's DMC? Capcom and Ninja Theory are shooting themselves in the foot. I smell another Dark Void and Bionic Commando happening. lol.
I can imagine he'll have a few. It's interesting how pretty much any game Inafune is apart of fails. If he thinks that Devil May Cry reboot is gonna sell 5 million copies, he is officially insane.I'd be surprised if the DMC reboot sells a million copies.
No doubt, they are the perfect team of insane game developers. Now it seems like Inafune is trying to say Lost Planet 2 didn't sell that well because he wasn't involved lol. Having played the game myself, I'd say it's the fact that it gets boring fast.
