He lives....
« on: February 03, 2009, 03:43:27 PM »
I'm talking about Bill Roper...

Can't believe he is going to heavily influence another game after the massive screw up at Flagship.

yeah read about this a while back on diii.net.

I wouldn't write him off just because of what happened to flagship, he has done a lot of good too.  I'll judge each company/product on its own

This. Besides, I'm not sure a lot of what happened to HG:L was his fault.

Tarr you are more forgiving than I am.  He definitely screwed you over with the lifetime subscription. 

I would not be happy seeing him walk in to manage anything.

I don't look at it like he screwed me over. I really don't think he wanted HG:L to fail.

I am not saying or thinking he meant for this to happen.  But as the CEO he made the decisions that caused it to happen.

Good for him I guess.  I'm still pissed about the whole Hellgate thing though.  So much potential...

Well, video games is a world apart. Honestly, develoment studio has ZERO power over their product. Publisher takes all the decisions, so you're probably better off blaming Namco-Bandai if you want a scapegoat about stuff like suscriptions.

Schaefer lives too and is making a new game.

SP AND MMO

Best part, SP is OUT in 2009, MMO part out years later .. sounds like some have learnt from flagship .. not to say that MMO is a shit idea but aren't keeping SP as the retarded inbred kid in the basement.

I am surprised to hear that Mythos survived.  That was going to be the second game that Flagship was going to make.  It was already far along when Flaghship exploded.

I think one reason it survived is not being out its reputation wasn't shattered

Well I am just surprise that Hanbi didn't take it over and kill it.  Maybe Hanbi still owns it.
