Reminds me of the GD Rom for the Dreamcast.  Sega got a regular CD to be able to go to 1 gigabyte by removing the extra crap and safeguards that were there since the format was created.  I remember working with Photo CD workstations and having to jump through hoops when burning discs with all the high sierra and other buried stuff that is part of the deep level of CD formatting.  DVD has the same crap, and could easily hold more if you formatted it with a proprietary setup.
 
The down side though, as was proven with the GD-ROM, is that you have to be extra careful all through the manufacturing and distribution.  Even the end user has to take care, since the disc is now much more prone to have read errors with the extra buffers removed.

Battlefield 2142 tried to be a new Tribes, but too many asshats shit on it for the in-game adverts and that it wasn't BF 3.  Maybe if they actually played it instead of bitched it would have gotten more support instead of being a footnote in the BF series.

RAD.  It's an awesome game but damn it feels like two dudes in a broom closet made it.  Even with all it's quirks and possibly intentionally horrible dubbing, there hasn't been a game before or since that came close to a giant robot show simulator.

This needs some Sega Master System 3D games on it.  And maybe Rad Racer and 3D Worldrunner as well.

I really don't get the hate on Minecraft, it's like hating on Legos.

" How cheap was the development if they expected to only sell 150K? Nowadays, it's "one million or go home". They must have had a helluva small team.  Now that they gots all that extra cash (and a useless 360 port in Japan), they can localize it here, maybe? "
It's not "1 mill or go home" in Japan, where selling 100k is a big deal.

Frankly I'm surprised they haven't announced their closure.  Too Human is the kind of failure that can end a studio, especially after the time and money that got sunk into it along with a mountain of hype.

If they were so good they wouldn't be out of business.  Fact is their games didn't sell enough, and nobody wanted to buy them.

Maybe their music genre. "
Rock Band hasn't exactly been doing nearly as well as it used to either.  Did you miss that Harmonix was unloaded by Viacom for practically nothing a month ago due to poor revenue?  The music genre is all but dead, and while RB was the white hat of the battle, the sheer amount of glut of music games from all parties is what turned everyone off.  The biggest problem was that after six years of music games, the gameplay was still the same, even with the additions and improvements you were still watching a rainbow highway and matching colors.
 
I think everyone suddenly realized it was cheaper to play air instruments and listen to an MP3 of their favorite songs instead of spending hundreds of dollars on the game and only liking 1/4 of the songs.
