To Video Game Developers: Enough with the Patches Already

200°
312w ago - Gamertell has posted an opinion piece regarding the annoyance of paying full price for a game that ships with mistakes that have to be patched.

From the article: "Most recently, games such as LittleBigPlanet, SOCOM Confrontation, Fable 2, and Castle Crashers have been victims of a crucial gameplay element being either broken or excluded from launch.

The good thing about technology and consoles in this generation is the ability of adding or fixing content through the use of a simple patch.

However, just because developers have this ability doesn't mean they should abuse it."

EA Forum Bans Equating to Being Banned from EA Games

50°
312w ago - Although this is nearly two weeks old, we missed it so here it is... According to eaapoc from the official Electronic Arts boards (linked above) a new policy will see EA simultaneously banning people from both the forums and EA games.

So for example, if you have SPORE or Red Alert 3 and get banned from the forums or in-game, then your SPORE/Red Alert 3 account will be banned too. EA states this is part of their plan to make people play nice and act mature.

To quote: Well, its actually going to be a bit nastier for those who get banned.

Your forum account will be directly tied to your Master EA Account, so if we ban you on the forums, you would be banned from the game as well since the login process is the same. And you'd actually be banned from your other EA games as well since its all tied to your account. So if you have SPORE and Red Alert 3 and you get yourself banned on our forums or in-game, well, your SPORE account would be banned to. It's all one in the same, so I strongly reccommend people play nice and act mature.

All in all, we expect people to come on here and abide by our ToS. We hate banning people, it makes our lives a lot tougher, but its what we have to do.
 

Miyamoto: Something was Missing from Last Zelda Game

200°
312w ago - Even though Twilight Princess was in development for years, in some ways, fans were disappointed. The game, while not even close to being a bad game, simply fell short of some expectations.

In a way, Shigeru Miyamoto feels the same way in that he feels as though "there was something missing" from the experience.

To quote: "That's something that I talk to the members of my development team about on a regular basis. What I've been saying to our development teams recently is that "Twilight Princess" was not a bad game, by any means. But, still, it felt like there was something missing.

And while, personally, I feel like "Super Mario Galaxy" was able to do some things that were very new and were very unique, at the same time, from another perspective, certain elements of it do feel somewhat conservative in terms of how far we branched out with design.

And so this is something I've been talking to both of those teams about. Of course, as is customary with Nintendo, it's very rare that we are able to announce any games until they're ready for release, but I can say that these are themes that both of those teams are taking into account and the hope is that for both of those franchises, when we do release the next installments of the "Zelda" [franchise]...
