good lord why is this tool still allowed to post


Because he knows how to toe the line of what this site calls trolling.


Isn't this in itself an offense? Judging by the poorly-worded and entirely too vague terms of service it doesn't seem to be, though it's no stretch to call deliberate misinformation and provoking users to respond inappropriately(something that IS spelled out on the message detail screen) disruptive behavior.

And yet here we are.

I see harassment and insulting people over being sexually assaulted is still allowed on GF as usual. Good job, mods. You guys sure work hard.

Hahahaha. Shouldn't you guys realized not to take this site seriously?

No use crying on who gets moderated or not. If this site allows trolling, so be it. That's why I never get angry and just laugh at this board comedy.

NO THEY DID NOT!
ALL three of their current gen games flopped hard for the publishers.
Where the HELL do you get the notion that they garnered a profit?
Evidence.
Again.


Mate.

I've posted links to support my facts.

Each one of NT's publishers/partners managed to turn a profit off of those game. While on the other hand, NT obtained profit off of 3 of their 4 game (Enslaved, Fightback, and DmC).

(Heavenly Sword)

They didn't obtain profit off of Heavenly Sword due to being a newly formed independent studio and not a multi-platform company.

Because of that dramatically huge mistake, they've learned from it and became a multi-platform company with worldwide/global acceptance.

PS: Sony continues to profit off of Heavenly Sword by including the main protagonist in All Stars and developing a CGI movie based on the Heavenly Sword universe.

Tekken 6 was publisher's top seller last year...

Tekken 6 was the top seller, shifting 1,150,000 units, ahead of Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2 and Ben 10: Ultimate Alien, with 1.1 million and 830,000 sales respectively.

Ninja Theory's Enslaved: Odyssey to the West placed fourth with 730,000 sales.


No where does it say that Enslaved (the game) turned a profit, only that Namco-Bandai (the company) made money and that was mostly from Tekken 6.

Here's my counter argument.

http://www.computerandvideogames.com/319916/ninja-theory-confirms-no-work-on-enslaved-2/

From the horse's mouth. If Enslaved turned a profit and was successful, why did NT say otherwise?

Well it didn't meet sells expectations to warrant a sequel. But Namco clearly turned a profit/small profit off of it as clearly stated in the link that I've posted.

You mean,Namco-Bandai turned a profit from the combined amount of Tekken 6, Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, Ben 10: Ultimate Alien AND Enslaved.

Come now, don't try to spin this as if Enslaved was the only game that made it possible for Bamco to turn a profit.

Again the clown tries to pass off his links as fact when his links outright contradict what he is saying.

Lollerclown, you did not post any evidence, and at least 5 calls of evidence went completely unanswered.

Nariko is only in All-stars because she is a Playstation exclusive. Sony didn't get a profit off of her.
Furthermore, that link doesn't provide any evidence it is getting a movie, and that game doesn't deserve one either way.
In fact, in the entire article not a word is said about HS getting a movie. Ratchet and Clank is, and the writer goes "OMG MAEK HS MOVIEZ!"
Not a single word that an actual movie is in production... There is NO evidence whatsoever, no interview with SOny or the likes, that a movie is in the works.
It is a friggin Kotaku article "mate"
