REVIEWS Stronghold Crusader 2 Review
From out of nowhere, Firefly Studios has released a title that is so, so close to being considered an RTS classic.

SPACECOM Review
This strategic space fighter won’t wow you with its looks, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t fun to be had. Especially if you bring friends along.

Oddworld Dev on EA: “F--k That Business”

Posted on Wednesday, March 26 @ 07:05:48 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Oddworld Inhabitants co-founder Lorne Lanning isn't interested in working with big publishers like Electronic Arts ever again.

Speaking to VG247, Lanning made it clear why his upcoming game Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty would be published by Oddworld Inhabitants itself rather than a larger company, painting big-name corporations in a particularly negative light.

F--k that business. I don’t want to play with that business, because it was a losing business. I just don’t want to go back and play the old [publisher] game. I’d rather not make games than go f--king be a slave for public companies who care more about their shareholders than they do about their customers.

Why did Battlefield 4 ship? You know that team was crying. You know that team knew that game wasn’t ready to go. You know that team f--king spent a lot of sleepless nights building that s--t out to look as good and play as good, when it was able to be experienced, being played as they were intending it to be played. Someone made a decision that the shareholders are more important than the customer. And we see a lot of that. How do you blow that? How do you take that f--king jewel and ship it with dirt all over it?

Lanning also expressed his frustration in seeing the media misrepresent the studio's upcoming title, Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, which isn't merely an HD remake. “We still see press calling it an HD remake, and it’s not a f--king HD remake,” he said. Instead, the game has be rebuilt from the ground up and is much more than just a high-definition port of a classic game.

Mr. Lanning, I promise I won't make that mistake ever again.
