It’s always amazing to me to read about people who are able to keep up with changing landscapes like this – not just in tech but in any circumstance. So many people get good at something then refuse to change with the times and get left behind as new systems come along. Coding games now must be such a vastly different thing than back in the early CD-ROM days.
Also, this is probably the first article I’ve read to actually get me excited for the Oculus Rift.
I was specifically thinking of Comic Jumper and Gunstringer. Maybe “misses” was harsh, but they certainly weren’t hits on the level of Splosion Man.
So does a game like this, that’s not only bad but actively offensive, permanently harm a company like Twisted Pixel? Obviously they’ve had a couple hits, but they have also had a couple misses. I can’t help but question the judgment of any group that would put out something like this nowadays.
At the very least, I would say they lost any benefit of the doubt on future titles.
The Madden games have gotten so complicated, I can’t imagine trying to jump into them now without prior experience. I’ve played Madden for two decades and still don’t use all the features.
But maybe that’s just my age speaking. Old dogs, new tricks, etc.
I currently don’t have anything other than the console pre-ordered (I’m still a little mad at Microsoft). I got my multi-plats on PS4 (same username).
I’ll probably end up with Dead Rising and Forza.
