Backbone layoffs amid 'lower demand for triple-A games'

Postby TheCrimsonFenix » 10 Oct 2012, 10:26

I think they made quite a few games but they were mostly handling other properties. Grand Theft Auto Advance, Spyro, Spider-Man The Movie, to name a few.

Perhaps if there were some actually good AAA games coming out there would be higher demand. As it stands, all the "AAA" games are sequals and crap that publishers think we like, ie CoD shite!

Far cry, halo, assassins creed, metro, borderlands, bioshock, gta, hitman etc. Are these or will these be just crap sequels publishers think we want?
Some say he's half man, half fish. Others say its more of a 70/30 split. Whatever the percentage, he's one fishy bastard.
