How can I forget the group of people who couldn't make Freespace2 a retail success worthy of its effort? Do you REALLY want to go there?
You know, I couldn't stand by and let that one go unassaulted. Sorry to burst your little bubble there Derek, but it was INTERPLAY that dropped the ball there. Yeah, thats right! YOUR FRIENDS
screwed the pooch. It wasn't Volition's responsibility to publish the game, it was INTERPLAY'S
. If Interplay had actually ADVERTISED
the game, it would have sold
better. I've talked to people that have played the first game, and never even HEARD of the second one. I introduced them to it and they were flat out blown away. In fact, one of them flat out stated that FS2 had the best graphics and gameplay he had ever seen. This is someone that regularly plays FPS games, completely blown away by a game with (and I quote) "an legacy engine".
For the record, until I heard about this story I had never even HEARD of you, let alone your pathetic "games". I decided to check up on your reviews and have yet to read a good one. Freespace2, on the other hand, got RAVE reviews and to this day still has an active fanbase. Hell, DESCENT
still has a very active fanbase, and its been around for what, 10 years now? I can assure you that after reading what an egotistical dickhead you are, I will not be buying ANYTHING you make or are the least bit involved in. Same goes for anyone I meet. Your so-called experience doesn't mean jack **** when you alienate the very fans you're supposed to be catoring to since WE
are the only ones that would remotely be interested in your little project. You obviously never payed attention in any of your business classes. Don't tell me...you bought your so-called doctoritte online from overseas didn't you?
I may not be working "in the industry", but remember that its people like ME that pay for the games that MAKE your salary. So go ahead, flex your ego a little more and see how big a check you get next time. I guarantee you none of it will be from my wallet.
Oh, for those that are reading, I only got to page 10 before I gave up and had to post this. If someone has already brought this up, or the mods posted a message somewhere in this thread for replies to him to cease, I apologize. I couldn't sit idly by anymore and let that one go.
