Honestly, I hope Nintendo buy them.
They could use that catalogue.

But then again, I hope Nintendo do a lot of things this year...
Just release GoldenEye on N64 emulation for the WiiU and watch the motherfucker sell out.

Be careful what you wish for - remember the blood censoring Nintendo forced capcom to do on the SNES version of SF2.

Interesting, will be keeping a close eye on that.

It was the cancellation of the Mega Man X reboot, Maverick Hunter, that got my goat the most, along with Legends 3 and a couple of other online games: http://www.polygon.com/2013/4/9/4179...averick-hunter

crytek's going to shiiiiiiiiiiiiit

wonder what will happen. if they try to sell the company. sell of their IPS and engine and file bankruptcy? try to pull themselves out of this seemable mess?

I wonder if the reason its gone to shit is because Microsoft ditched funding for Ryse 2?

cant see them lasting as an independant developer anymore doesnt seem to be working

Cryengine is excellent from all reports, someone might get lucky and be able to snap it up for next to nothing.

Not really surprised though.

Ryse looked like absolute garbage.

Crysis 2 and 3 were average.

I really liked ryse, problem was you could finish it in 6 hours

nobody wants to spend money on a AAA title that you will play for 6 hours.

I originally thought MS would buy them out, but considering the disagreement over IP rights to Ryse sequel leading to its cancellation (and possible, one of the reasons the company is failing) i'd be pretty surprised if it ended up happening.

Maybe Crytek regret giving Ubisoft the rights to Far Cry

and ABP, yes cryengine is excellent, but at the same time, who the fuck is using it anymore besides crytek?
Everybody seems to be using other engines which are just as good.

The market shows that quite clearly people will spend money on 6 hour experiences.

Star Citizen is using a modified CryEngine, if I'm not mistaken. That and they've released the Cryengine itself on Steam for those who want to dabble with it like the Unreal Engine, which could provide another revenue stream if developers then release games using that engine and then have to cough up additional fees for commercial use.

I get what you're saying but my point was that Cryengine isnt leaps and bounds above the rest anymore and not as valuable.

Yeah, but putting it on Steam might give Crytek an incentive to improve it. Ah well, might have to wait and see.

Giger-esque horror game Scorn, currently looking for funding. Concept art looks fantastic. There are some gameplay shots from the alpha in the GAF thread.

Quote:

The game’s name is Scorn, it’s being made by a newly formed studio known as Ebb software. They currently have 7 full-time studio members on-board, and created a demo pitch for studios with a total of 12 people directly involved, and got assistance from a number of freelance artists they have connections with. However, after pitching their demo and idea to several studios and investors, they got the same response every time; the game’s too weird for mainstream appeal, it’s single-player focused, and lacks hooks for the best way to monetize the project.

...

The main platform they’re developing for is PC, but PS4 is a potential option for them.

Sony VR headset apparently, which led to rumours that it was a Sony exclusive. But the devs have now spoken, and it doesn't appear to be the case any more.

It is interesting to note that this rule specifically avoids fingerprinting users believed to be located in Five Eyes countries, while other rules make no such distinction. For instance, the following fingerprint targets users visiting the Tails and Linux Journal websites, or performing certain web searches related to Tails, and makes no distinction about the country of the user.

We're excluded as we're part of the Five Eyes countries (Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.)

Some interesting stuff has happened in that gaf thread. A second guy chimed in saying that his "source" said it was a game of another name, and exclusive to Sony - completely contrary to the info given by the OP, who is in direct contact with the devs. Posting alleged inside info like that on gaf, without proof, can get you banned. But the mods have cleared him.

Then a Sony rep posted saying the thread got their attention, and they're now in contact with the dev team. No one knows wtf is going on, but it's intriguing.

Never played it, but remember it from a gaming mag back in the day, EGM, CVG, PC Format or something.. The artwork just stood out compared to everything else so much at the time.

Moved some posts that were intended for the tech help thread, and removed a few others. Just to clarify where the line is drawn:
  • Ragging on someone when they're actively posting and pretty much asking for it: OK
  • Starting a new joke train on them when they're not around: Please don't
