Supcom2, sans heavy marketing is probably the worst case of this I know.
Chris really fucked that one up, I'm not sure why he thought alienating his core fanbase and selling out would work when his only target demographic was that very same core fanbase. What really hits home is that this guy wasn't some balding fifty year old business man trying to make a buck, he was a legitimate, honest videogame developer trying as hard as he can to make a fun RTS.

Industry politics. And no, I don't mean social or government politics. I mean corporate officers who kill projects to reallocate funds or because they simply don't like certain personnel attached to it. Sometimes publishers will intentionally sabotage projects from external studios to bankrupt them, then attempt a hostile takeover for their IP rights (EA and Bethesda Softworks are most notorious for this).

It's a war out there. You just need to look at it with the right set of eyes.

>>260218338
That game didn't even play as a Tomb Raider title. It was an uncharted clone. That's why purists hated it so much.
>>
>>260218338

None of the corporate officers care if the game was good. From a business perspective, it could have been a steaming pile of shit.

What matters is that it sold several million copies but Square Enix considered it a financial disappointment. I don't give a fuck about Tomb Raider but that should scare the shit out of anyone who wants to see a sequel to their favourite games.

The publisher/studio relationship means that there's a lot of red tape when it comes to legal rights for IPs, along with employee bonuses and other weirdness like that.

I personally believe that publishers shouldn't be so aggressive about hoarding IP rights because you have situations like EA sitting on literally hundreds of great names that aren't used. The absolute worst is System Shock, which will never get another sequel due to legal problems.

Capcom doesn't represent the interests of their fans anymore, if they ever even did.

When a studio puts a series to rest because they want to move on to better things, that's good.

When a studio can't finish a popular series due to a publisher attempting a hostile acquisition or cutting bonuses to pad corporate officer salaries, that's bad.

When a studio finished a series and wraps the story in a nice bow, then a publisher forces them to make an unnecessary sequel to milk the franchise, that's bad.


You shouldn't take agency away from studios without good reason, is what I'm saying. A hostile acquisition is not a good fucking reason to kill a series. Thanks Bethesda. Hope you really enjoy sitting on that Prey license with no one to finish the sequel.

>>260221213

As much as I like Gabe Newell, Valve's obsession with Steam is another potential problem.

When a corporation like Sony can just sit back and collect their cut from video games released on their hardware, that's both good and bad. It's good because the lack of financial stress means that they can invest more into riskier projects like Journey. It's bad for the same reason, since they have no incentive to wrap up unfinished series that they retain partial ownership over. Overall, something like this is neutral. It's both good and bad.

You can't really say the same for corporations like Capcom or EA.
>>
>>260218918
The reason this didn't get a sequel is because some guy sued them claiming they stole his idea.
>>
>>260221570

I'd also like to clarify, before someone accuses me of having a hate boner for Capcom and EA (though I do), that I said they can't claim the same excuse since they're not really conglomerates who are invested in licensing just as much as publishing. EA Origin's success in licensing can't compare at all to Valve and Capcom, so far as I know, doesn't have any presence in a hardware market or in licensing third-party titles.
>>
>>260218738
im not even a purist, i had no preconceived notions about the series at all and i still thought it was fucking terrible. absolutely fucking terrible.

>>
>>260222158

Wasn't that lawsuit thrown out or did it actually turn into a thing? I remember reading about it but it seemed like some relatively minor moaning from some guy.

Speaks volumes about the publisher's legal department if they couldn't handle something like that. I guess they were too busy fighting the evils of piracy to crush a baseless legal claim like that.
>>
>>260221213
both games are slightly above average. Theyre definitely not bad, and I enjoyed them, but honestly I'd say they fit the bill perfectly for a 6/10 game if I ever had to name a couple of them
>>
>>260221570
Add to that how a new Half-life game would be a huge, huge financial risk. They would need a millionaire budget to create something accord to current standards: bigger, prettier, 4k. Also, there is no way a new half-life title will live up to the expectations of its fans.
Compared to that, it's easier to just collect paychecks from Steam's sales.

The funny thing is, I'm not okay with that. I personally loathe the half-life series but I think its fans deserve a new game. They've been waiting way too much time.

>>
>>260222886

It's one of those things that's funny for the first SIX fucking years then begins to get old fast. In interviews, Gabe is clearly more focused on decentralizing Steam for his retirement instead of focusing on games development. I can understand the wisdom in that and decentralized online game libraries is a concept he's wanted to do since Prospero, but it's still disrespectful to Half-Life fans.

I can't really hate the guy. He's smart and he's more ethical than most of the scum fucks in the industry. Sure as fuck isn't perfect, by any measure.

>>260223647

From a business perspective, here's the cynical way to look at it.

Unless localization is a success that rivals profits in the Japanese market, at least some Western fans will just buy the original Japanese version and try to figure it out anyway. Even if that's just 10 000 potential Western sales compared to a likely 200 000 to 400 000 in Japan, at that point it's just free money since they didn't pay a cent for localization,
>>
>>260224087
and yet 500k is?
>>
>>260214568
money
>>
>>260215884
Is this the new *tips fedora*?
>>
>>260224243

The game is in constant development. From what I've heard, the corporate officers at Ubisoft simply aren't being cooperative so the devs had to home-brew a lot of tools themselves or risk bankruptcy. The game's in this weird limbo between development hell and normal pre-production, constantly going back and forth.
>>
>>260224216
Because compared to other kinds of media, videogame sequels have the potential to bring upgrades and improvements, making the experience richer and funner.

>Pirate game

>>
>>260224350
Western companies and western branches don't care about Japan. A game can sell just 1 copy in nippon, if it sells 4M in America it will be considered a success.
>>
>>260225039

The amount of creative risk a game takes is inversely proportional to the likelihood that the studio will survive financially.

It's also directly proportional to the likelihood that the publisher will buy out the IP and sit on it for half a decade.

>>
>>260225210
no no, you have it backwards.

Capcom is a jap company. they reelased the game IN JAPAn, and it sold 500k. Then they decided "fuck it lets give it a chance again", localized it, sold it in america and it sold 200k there. And yet, the jap release was considered a 'success' and the american release was a 'failure' so now they refuse to localize any more in the series

Localization doesn't factor into the main development budget.

Capcom's publicly tradable, aren't they? Shareholders will probably question the wisdom of having half a million to a million USD set aside for something that's a much higher risk than a domestic Japanese release. From the shareholder perspective, it's an investment that's separate from the main project so it's considered dispensable.

Of course, that's just a guess.

Best example I can think of recently is ZombiU.

It was well received, with only a select few bad reviews, and showed a lot of potential improvement for a follow-up, but Ubisoft's sales expectations for a NEW IP on a NEW CONSOLE were so laughably high that it never happened.

Who knows though, maybe we'll get a Red Steel - Red Steel 2 situation.

>later on game sells a fuckton in the west because of a shitty anime adaption
>next two games are on platform known for being a pirate's heaven and have little of what made the first game good
Guess its name, it should be easy.

Fucking Saints Row 3.

I didn't get why SR3 outsold 2 when it was a step backwards in just about every way. Controls were better but that's the only improvement.

>series is good
>doesn't sell well, survives on its dedicated fanbase
>newest entry in the series is nothing like what the fans loved, with simplified gameplay and elements that appeal to broader, casual audiences
>sells a ton
>all future games will be like this or even worse now that the company has struck gold

Sigh.

Well it did have so many less bugs than the second.
tfw pc version of the second is almost unplayable due to the amount of bugs

>>260231175
>What was Red Alert

God dammit EA.

All I wanted to do was fight psychic fanatics on the moon using nuclear tanks under the banner of the glorious soviet union

Fucking Virtues Last Reward. I know that VLR didn't sell as well as 999 and even that wasn't a huge seller, but come on, at least finish the fucking story. Both games were received very well and really fun

every good series that gets popular

Yeah, fuck the developers for making the game they want to make.

That's one of the three series I had in mind when making that post.

RIP in waifus, Intelligent Systems.

At this point, Beyond Good and Evil 2 will fail no matter what. They will either dumb it down then it will just be like every other game out there and nobody will buy it or it would so different and nobody will buy it

With how absurd the amount of money it is to make a AAA game now I can Ubisoft cancelling the series forever even if it sold a few million copies

Everytime I mention Vanquish to someone

Valkyria Chronicles?

>>260230231
>too videogamey
I agree the plot was indeed retarded, but what the fuck does that even mean?
>>
>>260231150
Was there a Valkyria Chronicles anime?

also,
>game does pretty well
>it does well enough to warrant a full-priced expansion, as per usual with the company's games
>no chance for a sequel since company wants to do a f2p game on the NoGaems console, as well as making fucking BoF6 on fucking phones
DD2 never

and
>game revolutionizes vidya as a whole, by being the OG cinematic experience
>game's console dies because no DVD support
>game gets sequel on the HUEG, even though everyone got a PS2 instead
>company releases a somewhat similar but still vastly different series on PS2
>series goes on to PS3 as well
>all of a sudden, company tries to give NA shitty non-canon joke game to judge whether we are worthy of 5th installment
>game bombs, no 5th game, no HD 1&2, no 6th game on PS4
>company is also strongly opposed to making mad dosh from giving NA the sequel to one of their best-selling games, which fucktons of people would play because the original was the best online multiplayer vidya of its time
Fuck Sonic

>good low budget game
>has a satisfying ending with closure
>decide to make a sequel with way bigger budget with 3d animations and shit because it did better than expected

>fucking nips dont fund the game and we will never know what happened.

Fixed.

>>260239567
what's the second game?
>>
>>260238179
Bingo.

>>260233649
I did it coop just fine excepting the part where we had to download some tool so the game wasn't in fast forward constantly.

>>260239567
phantasy star online?
>>
>>260214568
I always wonder...why don't they just keep the same exact gameplay and just market it more?
