  1. Whenever I visit an internet cafe in China, be it Shanghai, Beijing or wherever, it always surprises me how many of the games available are MMO's or bad rip-offs of…

    For now, yes... but look at the quality. Cloning any game is not THAT easy to do. If you look pass that, you can imagine what they will be able to do in a few years. I am not defending them for stealing the idea.

    Look at the auto industry, does anyone still call the Japanese copy cat?

    I think taking the idea of an automobile and comparing it to a video game where the imagination can create an unlimited amount of unique ideas is unfair.

    I mean I guess the Japanese could of changed it up a bit and made the wheels square.
  8. Total Failure 2 is total failure.

    Damn zippers. lololol
  9. Can't we just apply Apple's logic and say that the first game was a copy and this one is the original ? ROTFL

    What dufuses. Isn't Team Fortress free?
  12. Its funny how people love to attack China for copying, yet there are many others who copy, especially games, yet they get away unscathed or unreported because nobody cares.

    Especially when we look at open markets like the Android market, there are many copies but no one says anything. CoD and MoH were practically like copies of each other and no one cared. There were games like copied Zelda or Street Fighter or GTA clones out there too. But still, no one said much about it.

    I remember Jeremy Clarkson making this statement as well in Top Gear with their trip in China. :p
  14. When I first heard about Final Combat, I was extremely disgusted... this is probably the worst rip-off of another game I've seen, mainly because the creators lied saying they are "making their own game" when it says TF2 all over it! They even copied maps from other games as well! But the one thing they made obvious, was Meet the Team videos... Valve was the only company that did it, so copying Valve's idea seemed like a good idea to them? Other people got sued for doing stuff like this, it's a shocker this game hasn't been sued yet.

    This is ridiculous, Everyone's said it, It is an obvious copy of TF2. Did anyone notice that even some of the weapons look EXACTLY the same, for example the "rocket's" rocket launcher, and the "Sniper's" pistol in the video. It's a messed up world when someone can blatantly steal and lie about it, and nothing can be done about it.
  16. Wow, even the weapons look the same. They couldn't even change the weapons from the TF2 look. I mean, look at the rocket launcher.
