Hold up! Let me get this straight

18 replies 514 views Edited Jul 10, 2013

I've seen a lot of Dart forums lately and all I want to confirm is:

 

Did they seriously start developing Dart and dropped him in favor of Zeus!?

 

When they announced Issac and Zeus, I could at least understand Issac, but Zeus looked stale and was nothing special.  All Zeus meant to them was marketing material for Ascension...

Dart was dropped due to the low sales of Zeus and Isaac.

That's why we're trying to get him back.

Actually sales of zues and Isaac was great,made Top 10 most downloaded for a whole month, reason why Dart got cancelled was due to the amount of negativity coming from people calling the game "boring,dead,stupid" left Sony in a state of confusion and chose to not continue any further plans on DLC.Way to go guys that will show them.

But the game is "Boring, Dead, and stupid". So what's the best way to fix that? Don't work on the game and don't release any DLC of course!..And I hate beating a dead horse, but sadly, PS4's just around the corner, GOW:A is out. So there's no point in Sony supporting this game anymore..Smiley Sad

Its true, I know Marcus is going to swoop in here and defend Santa Monica again, but all the game was for was to advertise for GoW: A. Two GoW characters after they said they would only do one, both OP as hell, and Zeus even mocks you when you call him broken and taunts you after a kill saying "You are broken." That is when I pull off my slippers, throw them at the TV, and shoop da whoop at the ceiling. Dart would have been a better choice, but SSM wanted to advertise Ascension more than make a better DLC.

They didn't choose Zeus instead of Dart. Zeus and Isaac were planned to be second. Dart was next. Support was just cancelled after Zeus. They didn't even make Zeus, Superbot already panned him. The people to blame here aren't SSM but the publisher, who ended support for this game prematurely.
