Sega never advertises their games. Look at Vanquish, Valkyria Chronicles, Viking: Battle for Asgard, Stormrise, Madworld, Alpha Protocol and Resonance of Fate. All those games are actually good and belong to genres that aren't overly saturated. Conduit 2 never stood a chance.

If it doesn't have Sonic in it, then it's not going to be marketed very well. The only non Sonic game that was actually marketed decently was Bayonetta and that was one of the best games of last year

Sorry but Sega choice was proper in regards to those titles.

Only AA quality title in that list is Valkyria Chronicles but it's cell shaded anime game which alone criples it's sales potential in west and being part of ultra niche srpg genre doesn't exactly help.

Viking was mediocry at most

Vanquish had a cripling flaw of being ultra short game with no online

Madworld - let's be serious - that game was shit with the only thing going for it being senseless violence, Postal or Manhunt weren't exactly uber sellers too.

Alpha Protocol - has some really great features in it but technical side is dragging it into mediocrity.

Stormrise is just shit

Resonance of Fate is above average but nowhere near AA jrpg potential

 

So the choice to not advertise them was smart - those games were mostly relatively low budget, so by going with stealth release they can probably recover cost. Advertising campaign would cost milions but there's no warranty it would be recovered from increase in sales.

Huh, sometimes i'm ashamed to be associated with joystiq, especially with McElroy running around in the comments later on saying "i've deleted all the comments that bashed this review"

Ugh

It would be nice if they actually gave more information about the game, that's for sure, rather than just bashing it...it's better than the original. End of.

@Mr Khan- if you don't like the site, just don't go on it. the only comments I (think) I've seen from you were on the Monster Hunter thread last week anyway



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

that review was funny, dont know what the problem, the guy went into detail about the campaign, wish he spent more time online but whatever

I think the Devs should add to their contracts that the publishers required to spend a certain minimum amount on advertising.

You can't sell a game if nobody knows about it.

demon souls.

Too few relevant threads. I used to be all over the place on that site, but they don't do enough stories that interest me anymore

Just doesn´t make sense. Yes the game is better than the previous one, yes is not by any mean perfect or a GREAT game, but 2/10 should mean that the game is not even playable, is the same score as PowerGig, and is worse than Kungfu Rider.



^^^^thats true



I ran into an annoying bug where they repeated the Red Team "loss" phrase (that  you hear if you lose a match on the red team), freezing everything up entirely. Very annoying to hear, and it required pulling the plug. Also got caught in the "post-game," where i respawned after the game ended and everyone else left. Couldn't quit normally, had to pull the plug there too...
