Microsoft deserve all the contempt that they get. So many dick moves over the years, it is stunnig.
Obsidian has always been beholden to publishers, who are responsible for QA. Plus they always had to work on different engine for every game (unreal, aurora, electron..). One time they actually worked on their own engine, Onyx, resulted in bug-free Dungeon Siege 3 (great, underrated action RPG).
The fact that publishers tend to release their games too early (KOTOR 2 – 11 months of development total, New Vegas – 18 months) does not help either.
We will see how Eternity will fare. I bet it will be polished game, since no god damn publisher is involved.
I was always curious about Singularity, but due to the fact that it never went on any kind of sale (hey, Activision!) I was just never tempted to actually buy it.
Anyway, what happened to Raven ? They used to be my favourite studio. Jedi Outcast, Jedi Academy, Hexen, Quake 4….so many great games!
And now, they do what ? Map packs for Call of Doody ? Such a waste. Thanks, Actard !
While this is often true, the Wii U was already dead a long time ago, more negative (and factual) reporting does not really harm it anymore.
