    Dennis Dyack has mismanaged every project he has been on. Including eternal darkness. Which I loved. However, this project besides possibly being copy right infringing is doomed to failure. Dyack’s track record, lawsuit history, makes one wonder if they will ever see a return on their investment. As much as I want this you might as well light your money on fire.

    Maybe Nintendo will grab the project and manage it well? That’s the only thing that I think could even remotely work.

    Ea not bring Madden is crazy. Idk…as much it doesn’t make financial sense I feel like something must have happened behind the scenes? EA did intentionally try to tank Dreamcast. But seriously how hard is it to port the XBOX360 version with streaming to the tablet?

    Did Crytek Make Their Announcement?

    Is Shadow of the Eternals the CryEngine 3 game that Cevat Yerli was talking about, or is there still another CryEngine 3 game coming that we can look forward to?

    “It doesn’t mean that CryEngine 3 doesn’t run on Wii U – it actually runs beautifully. In fact, there actually is a game in development from a respected developer that we will be announcing. I’ve seen the game running and it looks really great.”
