    You're all just too cynical. If these guys want to play pretend-developers and spew out amalgamated piles of asset packs in the shape of something created simply out of feasibility rather than original thought & aspiration, then placed on Greenlight amidst a sea of clones like one final turd dropped into a cesspool... I personally wish them all the best .

    Is it cynical to expect more of the same given their track record? I don't think so. Expecting better is optimism. Expecting the same is realism. Now if we expected this to become an all-new low in game development, that might qualify as cynicism.

    Personally I'm hoping they expose themselves to some more hilarity like that devchat fiasco where they got roasted alive by a so-called fan.

    You have got to be kidding me. Exactly how many chances do you think you should be given James? In all your projects, you have -yet- to release a fully playable, let alone fully developed, game. Why on Earth should anyone expect that this time will be different? Oh, by the way, what happened with RoH? You announced in January that it was back in development...what happened?

Since Communication was a major issue with GM I have been releasing updates on our Steam page on a daily basis detailing what is being worked on and I'll be continuing to do that. We have promoted some of our QA Team to other positions where their skills can be used more efficiently.
    Okay, a few things:

    1) You're going to be handling PR? Seriously? You don't think you should focus instead on, y'know, making a game? Since you have yet to release a finished product, what makes you feel that you can take on another role as well? But speaking of PR...

    2) Communication was a major issue for GM, you say? Correct me if I'm mistaken, but weren't YOU handling that? And we all saw how that went; from hyping progress that didn't actually happen, not even showing up for publicized stress tests without a word to anyone because you weren't feeling well to suddenly cancelling GM. You handle communications as well as you do game development.

    3) It's good that you're utilizing your QA team in other positions...I mean, it's not like there's much else for them to do.

    It's been said here before man, make a game instead of wasting people's time (and money). Until that happens, I doubt you're going to get much slack considering how the GM debacle went down.

    Him - PR?? He pissed off the public and his relations with Jason went to hell. No Lumpy PR?

    Why would he want to stick with the same fail team?

    Search for SlyJesse's portfolio. Nothing.

    Search for MagicRules's portfolio. Nothing.


    James gets all this BS people to help him, amateur hour sloppy people.


    Getting some pop-corn... amateur hour time.

    Well..

    James, Communication was never your problem with GreedMonger... and I would even say that your posting on the forums kept the scam going a year longer than it should have. Your problem is you never made any type of game in 3 years. You had 3 years, a ton of assets from the asset store, and you released a video in January that looked like nothing.. it was like watching your ´zombie game´.. it was just some random stuff thrown on the screen that did nothing. There was no game..

    Second, VERY IMPORTANT... you said on numerous forums, including your own, that you would not be using any of the assets from GreedMonger to make any of your other games... well Unistorm was in GreedMonger, and I would be willing to bet the character controller is the same also. This should shock nobody because basically everything you write is a total lie, and has been for the past 3 years. And seriously, how many times in the last 3 years did you say ´give us a chance´... Dude, you wasted $100,000 of others people´s money pretending you are a game developer. Yes, it is partially Jason´s fault for believing in you.. but wow.. how can anyone who can´t finish a space invaders clone even think they can make a MMORPG.

    You are seriously like TOA devs.. you just find random people and make them ´devs´.. Nobody who knows anything about making games is going to work with someone with your reputation and lack of skills. ´ Hey guys, I can´t make a space invader clone, but you should bring your elite skills and work with me´. yeah... not hard to imagine who you have working with you..

    James is a real-life greed monger:

    James is so greedy - no obligations to meet any Greed monger KickStarter obligations, maybe, except the T-Shirts. When will they be shipped? Next month or the month after?

    A new project! What happened to the Zombies and that older Greed-monger project?

    Saving money - getting noobs to do the new project...

    James cannot work with others. Where are the other people James previously worked with? All dismissed due to James' inability to work with others and incompetence.

    A few months later, no game, or just an empty shell of a game.

    James PR is the best PR ever. James tries to defend that he is making a MMORPG, while telling lies to everyone.

    There is no game. It's all fake development work. Look at the Youtube video again and again. Ghastly rubbish.

    James, when will there be a playable version of Greedmonger I can play?

    Can James release the server build for Greed Monger? I think James can, unless James have something to hide.

    First off, good to see you again, Azrile.

    Second, they really are. Cos as is the case in all forms of entertainment, you generally have three main tiers of producers.

    1)Innovators. These are the people who actually come up with fresh new ideas that spawn genres.
    2)Iterators. These are the people who take those genres and come up with new twists and improvements upon them that become hallmarks of the genre.
    3)Copycats. These are the people who basically do a reskinned version of something the people from 1 and 2 did. It might be a good copycat, it might be mediocre, it might be horrible poop.

    While the folks at ToA and GM like to think they're on one of those tiers, they don't even rate that high. In the course trying to be, all they're doing is playing wannabe because they never reach that crucial step of producing something playable. All they produce is a lot of hand-wringing and hot air. And entertainment for trolls and others who call them on their bombastic egotism.

    The funny thing is, both of these ´dev teams´ can´t even achieve being #3. I never even bothered to read the plans for the new James game.. I saw 3 screenshots that were nothing except something that was on sale on the asset store a few weeks ago.

    But it will be different this time, because James is doing the PR himself.. I wonder what happened to Lumpyman, he was the guy in here talking about branding and his vast amount of experience with marketing.. James is more fun though, he is so stupid he contradicts himself on almost a daily basis. One day he has a team of 9 working for him, the next day he can´t answer questions on the forums because he is the only dev for the game.

  13. #6773
    James has nobody but himself working on that game.


    The other developer has not made any game.

    The other modeller has not made any models.


    You can imagine what a team that is.


    Of course, James can publicly declare who is helping him.

    My hunch is that James cannot work with anyone because he'll reject them.

    Actually scratch that, they just look far more stupid when they say people are attached to those garbage projects. I guess he is paying those people in hopes and dreams? Just like ToA! Future profits and what not! GO TEAM!

    That's just the thing: nothing is -ever- his fault, and those few occasions where he "valiantly" took the blame for failings, they're always backhanded (he should have been more vigilant because he doesn't know why the other person didn't come through) in what has amounted to sympathy-seeking. He announces shiny new projects and the moment people who've been burned before say something, suddenly he's the victim.

    It seems like it all boils down to him needing other people to give him praise and attention, which isn't necessarily terrible...except that he never does anything to merit them.

  16. #6776
    All of this just further affirms my view that there's something very pathologically wrong with JamesP (and apparently most of his friends like Mr. Lumpy). Almost makes me feel bad for him since he clearly spends so much time living in this dream state.

  17. #6777
    Listen to his youtube videos. He sounds like a pathetic kid who is already on the window-ledge as far as mental stability. There are people who naturally feel sympathetic towards someone who sounds like they are about to break out in tears at any moment. The other part of it is that Jason was an a-hole, which also makes it easy to see someone who worked with him as a victim.

    I think those posters on the Unity forum took care of him... nice ´announcement´ thread.

  18. #6778
    I guess it means more to them to pretend they're actually going to get anywhere making a game than it does to give it up completely and face their day-to-day without it. If not for the fact other people wasted time and money on their foolishness, I might feel sorry for them. As it is, they get what they deserve, IMO.

    People are disgusted with your bs and unfulfilled promises.

    He's onto a new game but still blaming Jason and Lumpy. He won't blame Penguin later though because he's the exception.... Why is Penguin working with him? I thought he only had bad things to say about James.

    No, it was Appleton that Dark Penguin was all hot and bothered about nailing to the wall even after it became apparent that Proctor was just as much to blame.
