quote Crusad3rI agree, they could have just discussed this at work with colleagues rather than put it on something like FB. What gets put on the internet is there forever, unless we get hit by a solarflare but ah well....This is rather disappointing to see from game developers. Stress/frustration or not, such things are much better left unsaid.
Though I'd rather people do air their dirty laundry for my amusement
quote tekmosisQFT on every aspect. Hellgate was a good game with lots of potential but like I said used a terrible business model which caused Flagship to go under. Oh well, I have Guild Wars 2 to keep me busy and eventually Torchlight 2 will accompany it. I shall try out the World of Warcraft Diablo Edition's prestige mode (taken from CoD) out but since they haven't touched the RNG and cooldowns I'm 99% sure this new patch will not help the game out all that much. It might add 5 more minutes of replayabilityBANDITO ATTACK, I had a lot more fun with Hellgate than I did with D3 (unfortunately). Brevik was being very civil in his responses to try and not to spark controversy, just speaking his mind. This is the dude the created the first two Diablo games and made the series so popular, which is why D3 sold so many games, because of the huge D1/2 fan base.
Hellgate failed because EA pushed it out the door a few months earlier than it should have. The game had potential, and when I went to London a few months ago, in a couple places I was like "Hey, I remember this place from Hellgate". But, the game was the precursor to Torchlight.
quote BANDITO ATTACKLOL. He makes top notch ARPGs, I'm guessing you never played Hellgate. It was pretty decent and had tons of potential but the business model they used caused the game and company in general to fail. Isn't he working on Torchlight 2? If so it would make sense as the first one is very good and very much like Diablo 2. He knows what makes a good ARPG while the clowns at Blizzard don't.dude helped make two good games ten years ago, and has since made two failed ARPGs and a bankrupt development studio. he criticizes blizzard's design choices while clearly his own aren't treating him too good either.
blizzard are dumb-asses for saying this shit publicly, but i agree -- *bleep* that guy. pot calling the kettle black.
