    They'll have to com-pete for attention with Human Head/Roundhouse, the latest of Bethesda's harem. We WERE supposed to feel sorry for them because of that Prey 2 thing, but then The Quiet Man happened and then Rune 2 and so fuck those guys.

    OtherSide would fit right in.

    My feeling is that in February they are going to ship the physical goods and then annouce that it's over.

    We can kiss this one goodbye, another pack of lies from these thief's, hoods and scum-bags.

    Did anyone really think it was going to happen? ... Efe, you are as about as dumb as they come, did you really think this was going to get finished/started?

    Be honest now.

    What a damn charade its all been.

    Too bad. That teaser video actually looked halfway decent.

    I dunno. Maybe. I don't expect anything anymore from games. In these days teaser videos are good if they manage to not hurt you physically.

    People are predisposed to dislike anything from Otherside after what they did with Ultima Ascendant, and I don't blame them. I think the reception for the trailer would have been more positive had it been another developer.

    Yes, let us pretend the teaser and trailer were totally not yet more mockups to fish for publishers, because we can't know any better by now.

    The employee departures juxtaposed to Warren Spector lying out his ass about the health of the company - total coincidence.

    Guess I was too optimistic. I thought it might actually get released.

    Deflection.

    That is not how it works and you know it, you made the positive claim, the burden of proof is on you to provide evidence of this, so ... once again WHAT WAS GOOD ABOUT IT?

    He stated his opinion. You made a claim.
    Burden of proof is on you.
    Now put out or get out

    What amazes me is how often people fall for the same shit every time. Sympathy becomes a bit strained about a demographic so held by nostalgia they can be fleeced as a business model; the most amazing part is that the fleeced ENJOY it. Sure, they'll grumble about a failure to deliver on one title, but by the time they've figured out the con along comes the next asshole selling more nostalgic hope and they'll have forgotten any lesson to be learned.

    If anyone actually expects a real product then they need to put their money towards the devs who consistently prove themselves relevant to the genre they're delivering in, not those who are selling nostalgia about genres they haven't touched in more than a decade. At least they'll get the genre right, unlike the total cyan clownshoes that was OSE.

    And now you deflect, comes as no surprise really given your history.

    I asked him to back up his claim, he deflected.

    You have finaly found an ally, huh Efe/Oaf

    Shills of a feather flock together I guess.

    The weapon design in SS3 looked dogshit and everything else the trailer showed was scripted sequences.
