I mean if you all want to be angry about it that’s your prerogative, I’m just trying to be reasonable.  Again, this was always going to happen eventually.  Games get more and more expensive to make as technology advances; it’s not like they’re still developing for GBA or DS anymore.  And with the franchise’s model of introducing 100 or so new monsters with each generation, there was always going to come a point where the figures of “Pokémon we have” vs “Pokémon we can afford to put in the next game” would start to drift apart.
Gamefreak's model was fucking stupid. There was no need to design 100-200 new pokemon per generation, specially when so many of the were obvious expies of existing pokemon (bland bird pokemon, bland mammal pokemon). They should've seen the writing on the wall when they first made the leap into 3D and become much more restrained.

Dumping the old pokemon NOW is an unbelievably moronic idea since Pokemon Go made the original 151 more culturally relevant than anything GF could come up with.

Phoenix Point's (crowdfunded game by the original XCOM creator) dev team publicly said Epic Games gave them enough money to turn a profit even if all the backers demanded a refund.

Here's what I think happened. Deep Silver knows the following things about Shammu 3:

  • It looks like shit.
  • It has been in development for way too long, the devs probably don't know what the fuck they're doing.
  • I has a ridiculously large shoes to fill considering the 10 or so people who played Shammu 1 and 2 on the Dreamcast have been praising it non-stop for two decades.
  • It's a dated game that offers little to a market where every AAA from Zelda to Assassin's Creed to God of War to Farcry to Batman has a massive open world.

And when you consider all of this, plus the fact that almost every single one of these "successfully crowdfunded sequel/spiritual successor games spearheaded by a veteran developer, which runs into problems and delays during production" have been colossal failures and how they've worked with Epic before, it makes sense from their perspective to take the Epic Store's V-Bucks and failure-proof themselves if (when) the game flops.

It's spot on because it wasn't a leak, it was a datamine multiple people confirmed.

There's a more realistic alternative to jetpacks, it was a personal helicopter developed by the army with the rotor beneath the pilot's feet, I think was named after the magic carpet from Arabian lore, but google isn't showing anything.

Ese es un razonamiento falaz, complejidad tecnológica =/= complejidad artística.

Una mejor comparación sería tomar un vino artesanal (sprites) con un jugo de uva de tienda de las esquina (3D). Si el jugo de tienda te gusta (por cualquier razón) o no te parece pagar por el precio del vino está bien, pero pretender que el jugo es mejor porque es mas barato y tiene mayor "complejidad" porque está hecho en una línea de ensamblaje con brazos robot en lugar de artesanos no es un argumento válido en favor del jugo.

Sigo pensando que 2000 US es mucho para algo que no es profesional, digo si en eso se incluyera el motor grafico otra cosa sería, ademas 5 meses son mucho como para programar un char obviamente sin la creación de sprites originales, lo mas tardado seria la organización de sprites y animaciones, la programación es relativamente rápida, esto desde mi punto de vista, cuando anduve con ánimos de hacerlo programaba un movimiento de los mas complejos en un par de horas.

Ahora como creador de 3D (en proceso) me tardo mas en la física y estructuración de los modelos que en diseño mismo (con menos de 100,000 vértices) y hasta donde se, las comisiones por modelos de ese tipo oscilan al rededor de unos 20 a 100 US, cosa que en algo profesional se valúa entre 200 y 500 US en sitios dedicados, y claro también hay muchos que lo hacen por puro gusto :)

Oferta y demanda. 3D ha el estilo dominante en animación y videojuegos por años, hay una sobre oferta de personas que pueden modelar y animar en 3D.

Aun cuando el pixel art está mas o menos de moda ahora, los sprites que se ven en juegos indie son muy simplistas. Los sprites de los juegos de pelea de la edad de oro de Capcom y SNK son mucho mas difíciles de producir, por lo que las pocas personas que tiene la habilidad y experiencia cobran acorde.

IIRC you can only run linux on PS3 if you have the original "fat" PS3 (the fabled 600 USD PS3) and an early version of the firmware. Assuming you have the right model and are willing to go through the trouble of downgrading, your reward will be linmugen, a mugen version with even more limitations than winmugen (no HR hack).

PS4 you're SOL.

Making and fitting CGI into the final cut takes place in post production, after principal photography (i.e. all the hyuman scenes) is done. They probably weren't even close to finishing all the scenes involving Soynic, so dumping the design and starting over again might not be cheap, but it seems to be viable considering how the reception was universally negative.

Microtransactions, a buggy PC port, complaints about the story's end and some backlash over the perceived censorship in the game; it was the perfect storm.
