Re: Cyberstorm series - discussion

(please, feel free to share your impressions or to agree or disagree with what I've written) I've actually never played the game/series, myself. But man, that's pretty awesome that you got so much enjoyment out of it. I love when I dive into a game, and it pleasantly surprises me with how much I en...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

I'd rather pay once up front and never have to deal with micro-transactions or ads, but apparently I'm in the minority there. Then I must be in the same minority. Ditto. If it's an offline game, I agree. If it's an online game, of any kind, while I don't do any of the micro-transactions, I complete...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

The main reason I never played WoW is because I absolutely hate subscription games. Hate 'em with a passion. Why in the name of sanity should I pay a company even more money to play something that I already paid for? F*** that. :x In what other industry does that happen? When I buy a book, nobody f...

Re: Amazon's Lord of the Rings show...

Hmm. I can't see anything on that map that I haven't seen before - same geography as all the maps I've already seen, minus the names of any locations at all - no Shire, no Mordor, no nothing. :| I'm still cautiously optimistic, in the vein of "Good luck, Amazon - and don't screw this up!" Well, I d...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

Even more World of Warcraft (please). You do realize that World of Warcraft is Blizzard's cash-cow and not Activision? Yes, Activision has purchased them or whatever, but rest assured, if it was just Blizzard as itself, WoW is still their cash cow. To be fair, I did point out that the only result o...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

Anyone working on WOW for years will have little trouble finding a new job. Developers are usually very charitable to people who've been laid off. They keep posting well wishes on Twitter and that they have positions open in response. ActiVision needs to die. So does EA. I don't want to see employe...

Re: Activision laying off nearly 800

As for Activision ... what have they launched recently? Marvel: Ultimate Alliance (finished in 2013). Well, let's be clear, Marvel: Ultimate Alliance is not finished (but Activision didn't make this one). :) Even more World of Warcraft (please). You do realize that World of Warcraft is Blizzard's c...

Re: Sierra Presents...

The Wild West Quest (Working Title) - Essentially do a "Life on the Frontiers" - Frontiers Men/Women And Indians" kind of thing. Sort of a mixture of RTS and Adventure Games, where you play the cowboys and need to gather supplies. Along the lines, you would have quest like stuff, "Well, Jacob, I co...

Sierra Presents...

So, Sierra (back in the day!) did a great job of hitting every corner of the market with their "Adventure" games... For Fantasy (and even children, initially) - King's Quest, Black Cauldron For Stories - Conquest series For RPG - Quest for Glory For SciFi - Space Quest, Manhunter For "Adult" humor -...

Re: Sierra: The Movie

How about a Flight of the Navigator reboot though? Or The Cat From Outer Space? They were going to do a remake of The Cat From Outer Space, but there was this uproar that they changed him from a grey tabby to an orange tabby. People complaining about forcing diversity down everyone's throat and cha...

Re: Sierra: The Movie

:lol: I wonder what Netflix would do if it got its hands on Police Quest. Or - even worse - Quest for Glory. :shock: Well, I know if Netflix got a hold of it [Police Quest], they probably wouldn't follow what Daryl Gates did. As for Quest for Glory, I think they'd stick close to it, because it was ...

Re: Sierra: The Movie

I think your anger at the "diversity push" is blinding you to SHP's hypothetical question. :lol: Then there's the concern a studio would change everything about the story and just use the characters. It's happened before in shows like Riverdale, which took the characters from the Archie comics and p...

Re: Sierra: The Movie

Which Sierra games do you think could potentially lend themselves to film and/or TV adaptations? Obviously a great deal of creative liberties would need to be taken, and no adaptation could ever fully capture the gaming experience, but which ones do you feel are strong enough to work in another med...
