CCP went crazy sometime last year, given all their decisions then.

Unless you think what they did (and later corrected) was "sane"? ;P


While it does seem like they are taking their medication again, we can note that they still have their "pomposity" in order. ;P

(Heck, I am not a DUST514 hater and look forward to it, but CCP loves to chest-beat and brag, even if they've covered and proved such chest-beating and bragging in the past.)

Eve has one server. One server for everyone and anyone playing Eve. Now add in DUST514 players and I think that would be a pretty big game world.

Eve has one server for all their players (~300k). If you add in DUST514 players onto that server then it will be pretty big.

I don't understand how surprised they are at game hype. These three hacks wallow in game hype as a career. What is the big deal?

@theBeast Lol I bet they were all singing along when Bioware said that Swtor is one of the greatest achievements in history. They are ridiculous.

@Braiks As I recall they thought that was ridiculous.

I mean, anyone not huffing fumes would think that claim was sheer hubris, right?

if there's one thing i've learned it's that "player driven story and content" nearly always means "there's sod all to do, lets go play something else"

Eve managed to avoid that, and it would be awesome if they could spin in DUST...but back here in reality, i just hope it doesn't bancrupt them, one day i'd like to play the world of darkness game.

I enjoy this show very much but i personally feel Gary Gannon is a terrible host. His co hosts are so much more interesting and a few episodes when Gary was absent i feel the show went incredibly smooth.

His only saving feature is that every now and then (not always) he will play "the devil's advocate" and take objective positions when no one else will.

But i can not stand his jokes or the way he teases his co hosts which are far more respectable in the gaming world than him.

@shirtntie They are three really close buddies. I wouldn't take the joking so serious. I actually like Gary a lot. Everyone has their opinion though :P

@(Unverified) The thing is... Gary doesn't know what reporting news is. He only states his opinion and it's... pretty much always negative. I don't even feel like he enjoys playing MMORPGs at all. He's always bashing at games or bashing others for not liking a certain game. This pisses me off so bad.

The other hosts (Schaffnit and Mike B.) are way more awesome!

@shirtntie

Gary is an old school gamer. I like him as host. The shows don't go as well when he's not there to manage things. The other hosts are good too. Just saying gamebreaker dies without Gary.

@(Unverified) ^ this.

If you've watched the show for a good stretch of time you'd have noted that there's a great deal of camaraderie between Gary, who is essentially the heart of Gamebreaker TV, and his co-hosts.

He does have the nasty habit of interrupting people too much though, but I don't detect any antagonism.

Gamebreaker stopped being relevant around the same time Gannon actually last played a game.
Long, long ago.

It wont sell more copies than MAG, and a year post it's release it'll be next to empty.

But it's like how CCP believed incarna would draw new people in and boost the subscriber base to millions, even though everything and everyone told them a 3d chat room would do the exact opposite.

It's weird how a management so withdraw from reality can continue to sit in the hot chair. But apparently CCP want's to fail.

@oddshrub Just curious: is that the same 'everything and everyone' that demanded to get out of their ships for seven years?

@Saerain It's people who sees the flaw in taking resources away from game play development and spending them on social tools. Made worse by a continuation of doing so for years after the community has made the grievances with the process clear.

CCP banged their head against the wall because of their failure to recognize this, and they're going to bang their head against the wall again if they in anyway set up a financial dependency on a DUST success in the range they're expecting.

And you can check in with me in a year when it hasn't even sold 1 million copies if you want. :p

yeah .. I'm skeptic as well about the tens of millions, but who knows :)

some time ago I was skeptic about 60000 people online in the same world, I was also skeptic about 1400+ people fighting in the same battle ...

Ye - CCP has lost all credibility over the last year. Their biggest mistake ofc.. to make Dust PS3 game only. Thats just stupid and shows how out of touch CCP is atm.
