I'm sorry, but what track record delivery of "out-of-the-ordinary games"?

Exactly. The trailer for Dead Island was indeed "out-of-the-ordinary" but the actual game was utterly mediocre. Typical PR nonsense.

Anyway, as long as 4A games and Volition remain the sole devs I have faith the games will deliver.

Probably not, Crytek have been based in Germany for ages.

No. Spec Ops was made in Germany. If you haven't played its one of the most unsettlingly violent games this gen.

I felt the same way about the motar scene. I actually tried to see if not firing would have any affect but unfortunately you haven't got a choice.

OT: It's us gamers who will tell Koch media if they were the 'perfect' choice. Hopefully the next Saints Rows is more like SR2 than SR:TT, that game felt like a FTP game with desperate attempts to be funny and stripped of most of the good features that made SR2 a fantastic game.

As for Metro, if they leave complete development with 4A then I see no problem there. The last thing that game needs is more mainstream approach.
EA Sports: It's in the game(for a price).

Koch Media have been going on for a long time, solid financially and deal mainly with Nintendo for distribution.
