The first Fez didn't even look that great to begin with. It's one of those games you get on a Steam sale for a dollar and play all of once. The cancellation is a good thing, leaves more room for other indies to get in the game.

EA saw the crap that happened to SimCity, they're not about to let it happen to the best selling computer game series of all time--that is until EA thinks it can get it right.

I guess the name change really helped. To be honest I thought it was a new game before I looked it up--I was actually considering buying it. It was only a few bucks on Steam during the sale.

X1 can still be preorderd on Amazon so I don't know what you are saying. Amazon rankings are updated hourly relative to other items sold on that day in that category. If you track something over several months and the product you are tracking is usually at the top, it's a safe bet to say it's doing well, especially when compared to a similar product that hasn't.

Amazon is the largest online retailer in the world. So yes it does make sense. Preorder trends develop and companies use these trends to estimate future demand for the product.

The only barometer I use to determine if something is selling well is Amazon. A few months ago Xbox One was near the top in best sellers in video games, now it's not even in the top 50. But the PS4 is number 4 and keep in mind it was number 1 for a while--that was even after Amazon stopped preorders for the launch editions. And they stopped the bundle offers too. The only thing being sold now is the standard edition. I think that tells you something about the actual demand for the PS4.

Everything is going digital, it is an inevitability. The only question to ask is how long will it take. The same can be said for trading in digital licenses for video games and other entertainment. Because they are digital they have an infinite supply which mean by the laws of economics prices should reach zero because supply will outpace demand. By the very least everything should be a lot cheaper--this will destroy company profits. That's why the entertainment industry hate used copies so much. Companies are stalling as much as possible because they hate this but once they figure out another way to nickle-and-dime the consumer they will be more open to the idea. I wouldn't be surprised if game licenses expire after a certain date or a number of playing hours. Pay as you go for video games is probably in the future.

You must be thinking of the wrong company. Check their income statement, they haven't made a profit for the past 2 years. That's why the company is bringing in this guy.

Outbreak was basically RE online. So it offered a really interesting experience for the series, playing with other people. Everyone was infected from the start of the game and you had an infection meter to keep track of you infection rate. Being bitten increased you infection rate and taking medicine stopped it temporarily. When it reach 100% you became a zombie and could attack teammates. The main object was to get through the map by solving puzzles and scavenging. Of course the biggest problem with the game was communication, which is why I think it didn't do as well as it should have. An old-school RE game needed communication but mics weren't supported for Outbreak. The only way you could communicate with your teammates was through adlibs. It made the game very frustrating, especially if you were playing with newbies. I think if a game similar to Outbreak was released today with mic support on a DLC business model it would do better. There were only a handful of maps to play in Outbreak and they got old quickly. If there were more maps to purchase and special items to buy it would add gameplay value. In fact I wish Capcom would re-release Outbreak # 1 and 2 for digital download. There's a lot of people who miss playing the game after Capcom took the servers down. But I guess someone would have to rent servers to make the multiplayer work so...

It's amazing how these graphics still hold up even today. This game was originally released back in 2002--11 years ago. It makes you wonder what the GameCube could have been. By far my favorite survival horror game/RE game.
