wow, but that sounds... like you
Zitat von Stalagmite
Okay, this is getting dangerously close to what I've already asked you to avoid doing. Let's get back on topic and leave the comparisons for the other threads, there are enough of those. In here, we talk about JoWooD preparing to walk the plank.
Its because it would've been a better game if it wasn't labled as a gothic.
And I am getting bored of the people who say *Just because it is not a gothic it is not a bad game*
Same goes for Oblivion-with-guns.
So anyway, they got extension until the next month, right?

Finally, something has happened!
But I thought we had to wait till May.
Once again, I express the hope that all those employees who did not have a hand in the decisions or management of JoWooD get better jobs now - from the janitors to the execs. JoWooD's actions are not their fault - and one hopes that this serves as a warning to various publishers, not to be blinded by their greed. But I suppose that this warning won't be taken seriously enough until EA goes bankrupt.
i`m still waiting for the official news before i burst into a good laugh
Not unexpected (and since this isn't the 1st of April, I'm ready to trust those links).
However, this does not necessarily spell the end of JoWood as a name in game publishing - someone might opt to buy them, the name and/or the rights to their titles. If this happens, we can only hope they're someone who'll have their shit a bit more together than JoWood.
Yay, good news.
Good news. They did bad things to lots of us. And now bat things are happening to them. It's karma
Oh well,guess we won't see Fall of Setariff after all
Indeed ! thank god

It would have been good for the lulz.

Good riddance anyway, Jowood used to be good, releasing and funding many obscure and good titles apart from Gothic, but then they got greedy wanting more than they had the ability to budget for. They alienated a loyal Gothic fanbase and released one substandard half finished 'Gothic' game after another. PB will do fine now, though I wonder if they'll bother with 'Gothic' anymore after the raping Jowood and Spellbound and Trine gave it.
By the way, the Gothic series wasn't the only one treated like that. There's an old post somewhere which describes the various companies and games JoWooD ruined.
Practically all games that were publishe by JW suffered to some extent from their support policy.

Oh, well, at least we don't get any more "JoWooded" games.
I actually was the one that created the terms "JoWooded".
The publisher is dead! Long live the publisher!
I believe justice has been served today. No longer shall we hear the lies of this kanker. Tell me Franz, are you suffering? want your suffering, I want your beautiful suffering, I want to see your pain.
