Re: X4 = dead?

That's pretty much equivalent to saying that those who don't buy a new luxury car ever 2-3 years don't buy many CDs/MP3s to play in their car stereos. I don't think you'll find good evidence to support either claim. Not quite; it's reasonable to assume that people who don't spend a lot on hardware ...

Re: X4 = dead?

That would be nice if it was practical, but i doubt it is for many (if any) games. The subset of computer users who have older, slower computers is, i believe nearly the same as the subset who wouldn't spend much money on games... i.e. if someone doesn't spend much on hardware the chances are very ...

Re: X4 = dead?

Maybe its "graphical enhancements" that kill the genre? Just as 3D did to RTS games (in my humble opinion). Perhaps the pressure on developers to have up-to-date visuals that ultimately do poor in functionality, caused X4's demise. I'm generalizing of course.. There's something to that. Civ 4 seems...

Re: X4 = dead?

I wouldn't exactly call it out-of-style since there are constantly new tbs games hitting the market which are quite successful. Sure, FPS and MMOs have much wider player base but that does not mean there are no companies interested in creating tbs games.. I haven't kept up with games quite as much ...

Re: X4 = dead?

In my opinion, it is the pace of development. Developers can have the best plans in the world, but once the marketing people start breathing down their necks about having the product ready to make money NOWNOWNOW all the planning in the world won't help a whit. That's why MoO3 was such a letdown. P...
