Devolver Digital are an experienced publisher who have released a lot of quality games. The new 3DR haven't released any games at all, and so far their attempts to hype and tease (don't forget the old bombshell teaser) have backfired on them.

Btw, people are actually pretty fed up with Devolver's "announcements of future announcements", so don't say it worked for them; people buy the games because they're good, not because there's an announcement that an announcement about a game will be made in a month's time.

Right on both counts. I'm annoyed that they didn't address Serious Sam 4 being delayed out of 2014, and why Shadow Warrior is yet to receive the DX 11 + 64 bit update.

In late October, Frederick told IGN that the re-reveal was happening late 2014, and that the game would be released in Q1/Q2. Now it's being re-revealed in March (end of Q1).

No, I'm not. Why would Bombshell have a hype?

All the Hype (there was some...) disappeared when the title changed from Duke Nukem Mass Destruction to Bombshell. Even more when it was announced as not a FPS...

Any sort of hype was murdered by that awful trailer. Stupid things like teasing a teaser isn't going to recover any lost goodwill.

Had that been Duke in the trailer instead, it would've been a different outcome. The trailer would've still had its flaws, though. It's not exactly what I had in mind when I suggested the ideas for the trailer to Frederik (which were intended for Duke). They tried, but it just didn't turn out how I imagined it to.

I was hoping for more of a Ghost Rider vibe to the trailer. A dark parking garage or a city street at night would've been a better setting, not just a big, flat, open space with a chair and a TV in the middle of it.

Frederick talks about the Bombshell reveal on the SceneWorld podcast. He regrets the trailer saying it was a "really bad decision" and that they were influenced by marketing people to release something.

They've completely overhauled Bombshell's look to make her less like a forgettable sidekick who wasn't meant to be a main character and more of a strong female leader-type. Think Sarah Conner.

Quote

"Every part of her tells a story of why she looks like that but she still has innocent beauty that female characters need... You'll want to fall in love with her." (49.00 - mark)


Interceptor's already mapped out what will happen in Bombshell 2 & 3 (43.20 - mark). They think of it as a trans-media IP.

The reveal is still happening at GDC. It's being shown to the press behind closed doors.

Paternalistic nonsense that's almost as trite as the overt sexualisation that Schreiber's claiming to have moved away from.

Think Ellen Ripley.

The worst transmedia crap is where you have to read some dogshit comics or novels in order to understand what the fuck is going on in the main series, like what happeend with Halo 4. I should not have to read really bad novels or comics to understand the basics of why the bad men are shooting at me, who they are working for, and why I must kill them. Keep EU crap to the EU because, from what I've seen, every series EU sucks ass in one way or another.

I agree because I remember picking up the Gears of War series and apparently Marcus and Anya had some deep 'will they won't they' relationship going on that did not reflect in the games at all. Like she briefly touches his hand at the end of the third game and that is literally the only clue that they have romantic feelings...BOY WHAT A TENSE INTERESTING RELATIONSHIP YOU GOT GOING THERE GUYS. Let's not even go into each game ending with some kind of victory and then during the EU things happen so whenever I started up the next game, somehow things have gotten WORSE. I shouldn't need to buy comics and novels to have a clue of what the fuck is going on.

There's also the terrible Mass Effect EU (with the exception of Paragon Lost which I actually enjoyed because I liked Vega and it pulled a lot of surprises) where everybody knows everybody else and everything is connected because that's how you broaden the horizons of a game by making everybody their father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate. There was even an infamous 4th book in the series which was so badly written and researched they pulled it. No idea if it ever got re-released again.

I'm reminded of the time I saw someone get upset over the word 'trans-humanism' without actually understanding what the word meant. it was really funny!

Have you met a trans-human?

Or only fantasized about having sex with them?

The second option is perfectly acceptable as far as I'm concerned... just curious.

I'm pretty sure trans-humanism isn't even a thing yet. probably won't be for another 50-100 years at this rate! idk my best friend is Transgender but that's not even the same thing.

I'll be honest, being enthusiastic about the emerging dominance of a sort of being you've never met much less been... seems... curious... to be completely polite.

I'm genuinely curious. Which part do you consider weird? What would you consider normal in this context?

I have a general hopefulness for the future. It doesn't make alot of sense, really. I just think it's better to, you know, NOT immediately decide to treat something new and strange with disdain, confusion and fear.
But more importantly, the idea of an AI wreaking havoc on the world is utterly absurd, because even now we aren't to the point that a machine can reprogram itself beyond specifically set concepts. Sure, we've had instances of the ASIMOs doing things we can't entirely explain. One time a unit saw a scientist flip off a light switch over a year's worth of time. When the scientist forgot one day, it shut the switch off on it's own accord and then went back to it's charging station. It never did this again. But really, that's all still well within what it was programmed to do, just a weird thing they never foresaw. We simply are not to the point where programming a sentience could remotely happen, and even then, it could only work within the parameters given to it. It's not as scary as one would like to think.
Also, no, your robotic prosthetic will not try to kill you. it's only designed to read the nerve inputs for movement, nobody's stupid enough to attach anything more to such a device.

And really, why fear things designed to help us when weapons technology becomes so much more insane and powerful?

so what, are you saying we're gonna be all bionic commando and attach a guy's wife to his arm? Or maybe you really think somebody's gonna go to the amount of trouble to learn how to input instructions from an external device that would have to be attached somewhere inside the arm itself?? Like what are you expecting to do?
Like even if you're inferring the idea of sticking a gun on an arm, it's really kind of stupid to do that because it'd be really hard to aim effectively. you'd have to stand sideways every time you took a shot. Also, attaching a bunch of stuff to a robotic arm with a hand is bad. Sinew systems used for maneuvering a hand are extremely delicate and prone to breaking. While they're technically more durable than using individual joint systems and hydraulic systems, if even one part on a sinew system breaks the whole thing is inoperable. We still have not found a good way around this, especially when such a contraption would have to fit on a human being. (which they'd still have to carry around a battery pack) These arms are horribly weak even then, so a person using them can't even help their friend move an armchair without risking serious damage to the device.

In short, you don't understand real-life robotics enough to comment, but you somehow fear it anyway. You watch wayyyy too many movies.

I don't fear robotics.

I understand power in the hands of people willing to use it.

I don't fear being called an idiot by the "take my sovereignty away" brigade.

I understand pets in the hands of people willing to fuck them.

Well, if you listen to one gentleman talk, we'll have floating anti-gravity cities, seemingly 2 races of genetically modified people. Giant computers that govern the cities, socialist controlled. Unfortunately this undermines human creativity and there's no life left on the planet after 6000 ad.

You live, you die. Only the evil force wishes to keep you in the 5 senses or, concerned with earthly dealings.

Listen to another man talk, and we have open portals at the moment with 12ft winged creatures coming through. Supposedly one in a northern region of Canada.

Neither man denies the existence of the after life.

Other's claim something approaches the earth, eyes gazing intently.

Our future is going to get straight up terrible before anything "seems" to get better.

AI wreaking havoc has been pondered by supposed "bright minds" Hawking one of them, Musk etc.. They say it could be very bad. Don't listen to B.Gates about anything.

In this time, the mind will be able to be downloaded into machines or genetic clones, Google already has the patent.

Transhumanism will result in just another means of control. And a further growing away from God.

What if there's a side of robotics you don't know about at present?
