    So, I see we've reached a point where "85 percent or higher on Metacritic" is something you put in your vision document and simply allocate marketing funds for. Clearly it's impossible a priori for an "AAA" game to receive a lower score.

    Blatant admission that scores are bought.

    Indeed. You have to budget that in.

    Shooting for 5 games in 3 years seems realistic and bodes well for the quality of the games.

    Maybe the will finally do a decent follow up to Gorky 17. Of course in “Cavalier oblique” perspective and still turn based. And please do not tamper with the setting. The abandoned Russian base in far off year of 2008 was awesome. Just enhance the stats and make them more relevant.

    But then again “A Game”. Meh, nowadays I’m only playing “septuplet A + Games”, anything else isn’t enough mainstream or consolised to even bother.

    Also


    It would be pretty lulzy, if they actually did a parody game with gayralt and all the assorted Biowarean dating sim clichés. Preferably a game that plays itself and there is even no need to press the Awesome button. However there always is the danger it would sell too well and became the new standard of “old school ultrahardcore RPG’s”.

    It's pretty obvious that the whole "A system" gibberish isn't directed at fans but is supposed to convince investors - the metacritic thing too. High metacritic score being an important point of publishers towards dev studios is long known, wouldn't be surprising if investors would look towards the metacritic record too.

    The statement basically said: we're going to release a couple of critically acclaimed (ie. properly hyped) and financially successful games. That's business PR, nothing more. Need to keep the stock valuable.

    Good. Maybe console ports will keep them in business considering how they only sell like a million copies on PC after a year (compared to 3.5 million shipped for ME3 in a week or something). Sad.
