Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

    If the only metric of success is 'made money' then pretty much every game listed thus far was a success. Even Firefall still makes a pretty good chunk of money. Enough that they keep hiring new people and expanding.

    I count Titanfall as a failure because it sure was hyped as the next big Halo/CoD/Whatever killer and it couldn't even tickle those franchises, much less kill them. I think Call of Duty: Ghosts gets more people per day playing then Titanfall does, and Ghosts is considered probably the worst CoD game ever.

    Using the metric of financial failure though: Grim Fandango, Psychonauts and Brutal Legends sure are paragons of horrible failure.

    So what, are we judging based on games that 'Lived up to the hype', 'made money' or some other nebulous thing like 'Well I like it and enough other people like it so it must have been good enough'?

    Keep it simple. Failed = not amazing.
    So, every single poster in this thread (myself included!) is a failure? Works for me! :D

    Pfft, speak for yourself buddy. I'm fuckin amazing

    Having gotten to the point where I was satisfied with my Skrim Mods, I took off for a far dungeon that was sitting on my misc quests tab.

    Nooooooooo Meeko I'm sorry.

    Well now you just have to reload your last save, even if you lose a few hours of progress.

    Or you could respawn him with the console command. But then is it really the same dog?

    Just like with Star Trek teleportation, no it isn't. The Starfleet officer/dog died, and this perfect copy has taken it's place.

    This is a little pre-emptive, but I don't know where else to put it!



    :P

    As a fan.................my ............ooooh.....oh oh oh.....

    It looks like it could be a fun game, but really looks like the anime version of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Fan rant
    Spoiler:

    A real section 9 game would be somewhere between splinter cell and Deus Ex. Yeah, another The Bureau.

    Don't give a shit, it still looks badass. It reminds me a lot of NeoTokyo (which is super inspired by GitS so no surprise there), Dystopia, and Blacklight: Retribution, all of which are fucking amazing and I'm always down for more cyberpunk FPS games.
