@dberg: maybe because Valve bought Turtle Rock for a while, they did CS:Source and invented L4D, but they're off on their own now

wowowowowowowowow.

Know what? That's fine. Between Shadow of Mordor, Dragon Age, and GTA V (not to mention that ever-increasing backlog of mine), I'll have plenty to entertain.

2014 the year where everybody acts like people who never experienced a game being delayed

Posted by Coolarman

2015 looks like is going to be a good year for video games guys

Posted by Pie

I feel like for the past 4 years or so people have been saying "oh next year is gonna be the year guys" but then it never happens

Posted by Cirdain

Kinda feels like each of those years have been pretty damn good for video games.

Are you serious? The amount of advertising I've seen for Evolve around London is CRAZY

The top ten lists for 2014 are going to be nothing but indie games.

Edited by kippers

I've already hit a point with this generation where I'm going back to 'earlier'* games that I would usually have completely missed out on. In one respect, that's good, as I get to play them, but proves from my pov that this has been a sloooow start. Fuck, I might even be dusting off the 360 and buying Stick of Truth very soon.

*As early as you can get at the still early stages of a console generation.

To put in perspective, I have a measly 4 games.

Posted by IndridCipher

my god 2015 is the most stacked year of all time..... February next year is going to be like a normal October.

I still have Diablo 3, Destiny, Driveclub, Shadow of Mordor, AC Unity, Farcry 4, CoD Advanced Warfare, and Dragon Age inquisition to look forward too... so i don't think people should discount this years offerings as much as they do. Next year though, next year appears to be insanely packed with awesome games.

I would mostly disagree but hey that's just me

So GB is tumblr now? Because that's what it feels like reading those 2 sentences and a gif.

Fuck Turtle Rock.

They fired an employee over the Donald Sterling thing just for saying it was wrong to use an illegally-recorded private conversation against him in a supposedly free country.

I refuse to support Evolve or any other game they ever develop.

Frankly, if my employee was stupid enough to post this and think that there's such a thing as an "illegally-recorded private conversation" (spoilers: it's completely legal to record someone without their knowledge, it just cannot be used as evidence in court, which is irrelevant because you can't be arrested for being a racist), I'd fire him too for being a complete idiot. He probably also thinks his "free speech was infringed upon" for being fired, too.

Going into that alpha I was sorta unsure how they were gonna ship in 3 months with how rough things were. But a 7 month delay seems kinda crazy.

Why would you do this to me? I NEEDED THIS.

Great outlook you have there.

If that means they'll work hard on making it seem worth $60 for enough people to break even with the project then that's great, the game needed it.

Man now I'm glad that Inquisition only got delayed to November.

Will this comment still be in here in an hour? Let's find out together.

Posted by Vigil80

Well, looks like I'll have plenty of time for Divinity, my 4th Red Dead playthrough, my 4th XCOM playthrough...

Posted by Baltimore

Makes sense actually. (A) Evolve isn't going up against the titans of CoD, FarCry and Halo. And (B) TakeTwo gets to pad out it's first quarter if the game sells well.

Ha, if this was a user created thread it'd get locked for "not enough content".

I'm just not going to have any money whatsoever in 2015, am I?

Unless every single game in 2015 is a burning pile of shit, 2015 will probably end up being the greatest year for video games.

Posted by falserelic

Can't say I'm surprised at all. Games have been getting delayed like crazy this year. Even with a delay it doesn't mean the game will get better., Watchdogs is a prime example.

Edited by mtfikhan

This is great news for me. With Destiny, Nintendo slate and the Halo Collection, i think i'll be fine.

Well everyone at GB should have ample time to play all the games up for 2014 GOTY stuff this year.

I think the top 10 well be indy games and south park and that's it lol.

Posted by infinite_zero00

This is kind of good news, they had some stuff to work on in this game

Posted by Sammo21

While I wanted this to be great and out this fall all I can think is

THANK GOD I'M NOT SPENDING MORE MONEY THIS YEAR

@ll_exile_ll No, they were talking about Halo 5...

Edited by Aetheldod

@turboman said:

Oh well, now I guess I'll have to settle for Far Cry, Dragon Age, WWE 2k15, Madden/Sports, Shadow of Mordor, Halo Remakes, Destiny, Super Smash Bros, Assassin's Creed Unity, Alien, Civilization: Beyond Earth, Advanced Warfare, The Evil Within, Sunset Overdrive, and a huge number of Digital games.

People saying that there are no games this year are crazy people.

I find your lack of Guilty Gear XRD ...... disturbing >:3

Posted by ZedsDeadBaby

Fine with me. An already loaded Fall will allow me to play more stuff and maybe chip in to my backlog.

Posted by DHIATENSOR

I'd love to know how many of these delays followed release dates that the publishers knew to be total BS when they announced them.

Maybe that's paranoid, but on some of them it seems they must have known that the proposed dates were at best incredibly optimistic.

Posted by andrewf87462

Shame, was looking forward to this.

Edited by Raven10

@dberg: Turtle Rock (the game's developer) was at one point owned by Valve when they co-developed the first Left 4 Dead. They then pulled a Bungie and returned toindependence to make Evolve.

@kippers: Seems like a normal start as far as I can recall. Usually takes at least two years before we start seeing regular quality releases on a new system. Especially since the dawn of 3D games and their increased development requirements.

Edited by katsu044

I wonder if the whole delayed game is better than a bad game is actually for the better thinking aback on recent history WatchDogs was delayed multiple times and the outcome of that was it was a "alright game" just simply didn't live up to all the hype it had ,then we have Hardline which was pretty much EA and Dice noticing their new shit was to similar to BF4 and not enough content to warrant a 60$ price,though games like Titianfall could of used this "whole delaying to polish and make it better" because that game was seriously lacking a lot of stuff.

From what i seen of Evolve looks great was only worried on how many monsters would be in the full game and if the classes differentiated enough to make trying them all out fun and if it had a lot of game modes to keep the game fun for the coming months.

Wither this is actually for that or just because there's so much coming out and they just wanna space out their releases who knows.

With all that said Games are still coming out and the List is not small.

Also so much Hype for 2015 it's scary having that much coming out in Q1

Posted by Corevi

That's crazy. They had ads all over RAW last night

I know you haven't watched RAW in a while but they've had 2 Evolve ads every commercial break for the last month and a half.

Edited by Creamypies

In fairness... as much as all these delays suck... my wallet thanks each and every one of them. Spacing these releases out more throughout the year is in a lot of ways, a financial gift.

Posted by isomeri

I'm glad. There are plenty of great looking games coming out before the end of the year.

Well, DANG NAMMIT. I just played the Alpha for the game over the weekend, too and I had a fun during my time with it.

Posted by PXAbstraction

I was in the alpha and the NDA prevents me from going into detail but as someone who is still looking forward to the game, I think working on it a while longer is a good idea.

Posted by mercury228

I played the recent Alpha and it was fun. I had some worries though. I do not know how much fun this game will be for more than a few hours. Even if they added more monsters than the 2 announced, more humans, etc. I guess they will have more game modes and such so its to early to tell. It has huge potential.

@dberg said:

I thought this was a Valve game. ...why did I think this was a Valve game? I'm confused.

Maybe because Evolve is made by Turtle Rock (the guys and gals behind Left 4 Dead)? Every time I've played it, it still reminds me a lot of Left 4 Dead, in a good way, so I can see why you thought that.
