Project HON is cancelled by NCsoft

Why do you build me up, Buttercup, baby, just to let me down and mess me around?

Remember Project HON? It was a giant robot combat game in the Unreal 4 engine, and every trailer released for it looked stompy and beautiful. And now it’s dead, so you should probably use that to temper any sudden spurts of enthusiasm you feel just for that description alone.

The project was reportedly cancelled because of NCsoft‘s determination that there is insufficient interest in the title in the local games market and that the title just isn’t a good fit. The fact that the team was involved with an embezzlement scandal earlier this year probably didn’t help its case, either. If you’ll excuse me, I have to go sing a few verses of a hastily rewritten “Candle in the Wind” thanks to this news.

Werewolf Finds Dragon Let’s also ignore that simplicity is often best. But you wouldn’t get that cuz you’re autistic. “WHY DON’T I HAVE NEURAL INTERFACE AND HAPTIC FEEDBACK SENT DIRECTLY INTO MY FUCKING BRAIN” Well because a joystick is cheaper, less likely to fail, easier to fix, and easier to fucking use and train for.
Your father should have pulled out. You’re probably an annoying, insufferable cunt in real life with few if any friends that aren’t hanging out with you out of pity.

Werewolf Finds Dragon What the fuck are you talking about dude, you ran around and shot shit in Hawken with WASD and mouse controls. How is that unintuitive? You are rambling about nothing that is relevant.
“Nothing dates a mecha more than a joystick, a window, and slow, clunky,
’50s robot movement (our robots today move smoother than that). I think
that’s why mecha games (and possibly even science fiction stories in
general) are on the way out. We can’t leave the past behind when looking
at the future.”
It’s the type of game they were going for. Your entire post is “Why isn’t it gundams?” I guess. Kill yourself you fucking moron. There was a very specific type of movement they wanted. If they wanted to make whatever stupid fucking mech you’re trying to insist they should’ve made, they would have.

“The problem is is that we seem to be writing science fiction for people
who’re right wing, conservative traditionalists and fifty years of age.”
No, they’re writing sci-fi for a VIDEO GAME.
 

“It’s just so… obnoxiously quaint and naive to believe that the future will look like the ’60s.”
IT IS A *VIDEO GAME*
THEY MADE A *VIDEO GAME* FEATURING ROBOTS THAT THEY LIKED AND THOUGHT OTHERS WOULD LIKE

You’re basically whining and bitching because this game doesn’t follow what YOU think futuristic warmachines should be like. Your head is so far up your own ass you can’t take a step back and realize that a VIDEO GAME does not need to be realistic, a VIDEO GAME needs to be fun and enjoyable first and foremost. If realism adds to that, go ahead. If it does not, don’t bother. If you don’t want to go for realism for some reason that’s fine.
“Despite the fact that our smart phones have more advanced hardware than
every computer system on those jet-fighters-in-space combined.”
What relevance does this fucking have in WANTING A VIDEO GAME ABOUT JETS IN SPACE?

“Anyway, the point about the phone is irrelevant”

Then why did you bring it up? Fuckface.
“And whilst tablets are becoming ever more thin, data devices in science fiction are huge, chunky things.”
Maybe because it’s science FICTION. As in NOT FUCKING REAL. As in IT’S A FUCKING VIDEO GAME.

“We still have spaceships with windows (why the bloody hell do spaceships have windows?),”
Because cameras can fail you fucking moron. There are way more things that can go wrong on a spaceship th

“I’m autistic,”
Opinion discarded. You’re barely fucking human, no wonder you don’t get it. You can’t wrap your fucking head around the fact that maybe someone doesn’t want their VIDEO GAME to be as realistic as autistically possible.

“I think that’s why mecha games (and possibly even science fiction stories in general) are on the way out.”
Yeah, you *THINK* because you’re a fucking moron. The real rason is because mobile games are cheap and make shit loads of money, and Call of Duty sells like hotcakes yearly. You’re an autistic moron. You will NEVER understand other human beings. That’s why you wrote this enormous fucking rambling post about “MY PHONE IS SUPER HIGH TECH AND ADVANCED, WHY IS THIS ROBOT IN A VIDEO GAME NOT LIVING UP TO BY ASININE EXPECTATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY AND SCI-FI”

Gee I donno maybe it’s because you’re a fucking autistic moron who will never ever be able to relate to other human beings that aren’t mentally deficient. You have done nothing but rationalize like a fucking child over how “unrealistic” a VIDEO GAME IS.

You are AUTISTIC.

NEVER AGAIN in your fucking FAIRY TALE LIFE presume to be able to understand the thoughts, opinions, and motivations of another human being who is not a FUCKING AUTISTIC RETARD that should have been aborted.

You should have been squitted into a wad of tissues.

Titanfall had innumerable issues (see a partial list above). Hawken was massively under-developed. You don’t center a game around a near-empty cosmetic focused cash shop and expect it to make money.

 “when there’s ‘insufficient interest’ in giant freaking robots IN ASIA”. 
There, corrected that for you.
