Hey guys. Online authentication isn't a big deal, remember? Requiring a connection to play a game is the way forward for rights management, console players should get used to it. You have to have a connection to download the game in the first place, so I don't see why it would be a prob- oh, wait, the server is borked? Well damn, who could have foreseen that wrinkle?

You're being an idiot. It's an online-only game. Without the things you're talking about, Hybrid wouldn't exist at all. It's a stupid fucking situation, yes, but not for any of the reasons you're floating here.

I know, but I didn't want to pass on the chance to be a douche.

Hybrid looked neat, too.

The mentality of releasing unfinished products and patching them later needs to die. Just go to PC.

This is a huge disappointment. I intend to purchase this game soon. It's lame to see a game with enormous potential stutter at launch.

Summer Of Arcade hasn't been so bad, i mean i have bought 3 out of the 5 games released so far (the first 3) and although i don't plan to buy this or Dust, i'd say it's been a bit lacking compared to previous years but not so bad.

The fact they released some of their best games earlier in the year with Trials Evolution and Fez, if they had just saved those for this instead of making up another promotional period for those two games between this and Block Party, then you would have had the quality we come to expect from SoA.

Only Tony Yayo can save us now.

lol, got in one game yesterday, killed it against my online opponents and then the server crashed for good. It seems kinda fun though.

I'm with Jeff that it has been a bummer of arcade this year. PSN play seems to have better games, soundshapes came out this week and seems awesome. Papa and Yo is out next week and looks great from the most recent trailer they put out. Also Retro/Grade could be quite cool

Hopefully they have the problem fixed for real and hopefully it's not too late.

These are the kind of mistakes that can end a company.

Microsoft really screwed up by not having Spelunky and Rock Band Blitz in the Summer of Arcade.

I'll probably pick up dust next week. It's the only title I'm interested in. Given these problems with hybrid.

#67 Posted by ripelivejam (3551 posts) -

huge hopes for Dust, but i'll be buying it anyway out of sympathy for the guy

but maybe that was the plan ALL ALONG!!!! D:

@neverdeed: So, being a dick is ok, I'm sooooooo glad I own both consoles.

I bought both Hybrid and Deadlight on a whim. They're both really good, could not disagree more with Brad about Deadlight. And Hybrid is just fun.
