What I don't understand is they rape franchises like Fallout and X-Com and Syndicate to bring them back as action games that piss off the fans, when there's stuff like Carmageddon and Crusader they could redo without ruffling feathers.

That, and then they sell it to a demographic for which those names mean nothing.

It's like re-naming a boy band "The Doors" and having them play banal pop music for little girls. Why bother?


Crusader was good shit.
How bout a Gauntlet reboot?

True dat.

However, and even though the cynic in me, or rather the cynic that is me would like to point out that the following statement may cause considerable burn damage but then, someone has to ask. It's just a game about running people over, how hard can they fuck it up?

I'll be picking up a fire extinguisher on my way home, just in case.

Also, see 'XCOM' or innumerable other looming catastrophic disappointments.

The only thing the general you can rely upon is the capacity for others to defile the things the general you enjoyed/held dear. The distinction between carelessness and malice isn't especially pertinent.

when there're a couple of people out there who'd be quite acceptable targets for a bit of a spanking-whilst-tied-to-a-chair.

If you contend you'd rather see sex between two consenting adults instead of rape, then sure, although you are aware that that's

I do, however, hereby commit to being smacked upside the head with a bottle of Coke by mr. Blargh Uys here, when whatever the fuck they're going to call it-geddon turns out to be a gritty reALisTiK 3rd person shooter, if only for cutting them rapists half a millimeter of slack when my tiny bushman ass should quite clearly know better. duckie

Only Shadowrun game I know of was a shitty Xbox/PC release. How do you rape a franchise that contains only one game?

Okay, so they ruined an NES game no one cared about in the first place. We're talking about real games here.

I'm talking about intellectual property. Instead of ignoring Wasteland lite, maybe you should try it?
