Matrix Online private server powerleveling ER starts tomorrow, thanks for asking.
Zero. I’m not even sure what you’re supposed to do with them. It’s some kind of game, right?
It depends on the game and what I’m expecting to do with it. If it’s something that no one else on staff is playing, I’d probably give it a little more time than something that I know someone else will be able to talk about.
Oh, did he? I missed it, I might have been fightin’ hard when he popped by. Otherwise I would have said hey!
Nice work, kid.
It’s one of those things that happens when we’re in the middle of a hardware transition. They start developing those games well before the specs of consoles are finalized and probably made those target videos a long-ass time ago. Once the specs were finalized and they started working for reals, it was probably immediately apparent to the team that the game wouldn’t be able to look like that.
I doubt they were being deliberately deceptive (or, at least, any more deliberately deceptive than any announcement-timed footage is).
As for the long-term impact, it’s hard to say. Some percentage of the game’s audience doesn’t even know it exists yet, so by the time the launch-timed marketing starts and they push onto TV and stuff, they’ll be reaching people who don’t know, don’t care, or don’t remember anything about that old trailer.
If there’s an extra copy around here I might give it a shot, like I did with the previous game.
