"Dust 514, that's just going to fail". Well, if anyone knows about failure, it's Derek Smart!

@Spacegrass

I can't say I disagree all that much that Dust is going to do bad. They are targetting only the console market as the current generation of consoles is hitting the expiration date and console sales/console game sales are way way down. That just isn't smart. By the time the get it out to the PS3 it isn't going to get much.

But I will also say Line of Defense sounds and looks like fail.

@Spacegrass

he comes off as hypocritical, right, but anyway you doesnt need to be part of the industry for 40 years with tons of awesome games under your belt to tell that DUST is a huge accident about to happen...

@Spacegrass The funniest part about it is that he thinks it would've been better to do a sequel to EVE. Even if DUST fails, that is such an obviously terrible idea as long as EVE is running as strongly as it is. MMOs learned that a long time ago.

Spewing BS to stir up pointless controversy.

Yep, that's Derek Smart all right.

you should read the interview, it was a good read.

he comes off as the arrogant fool he is, yet at the same time he doesnt...werd, I know, but sometimes he's almost likable.

I gotta give the man credit for a few truths he speaks.

@Fabius Bile

By being an admitted troll, he's also likely cranked out a few good lies and half-truths. /shrug

For two decades, talking smack, massive ego, all hot air. Not that anyone in the industry takes him seriously. Weak sauce then, watered down weak sauce now. You'll be "smart" to avoid any product he's defiled.

Dude your trailer looks like a crappy game from early 2000's, your effects were added in post-production (badly too), animations are so stiff they make MY back hurt.

I'm no fan of Eve myself, but you sir, are full of it.

This is how Derek does business, troll in real life.

Professional and respectful as always.

So annoyed by this guy. He needs to release a game that's at least half-decent before spewing that kind of immaturity.

This just how Derek operates, real life troll.

Never heard of him or played any of the games listed on wikipedia.

Scanned the RPS article and while it is always good to hear peoples opinions (even if I have no clue who he is) this guy is going out of his way to stir up controversy just for the sake of it so not really interested.
