Aaero Developer Is Tired Of The Backlash To Every Xbox One Announcement

“I’m tired of every announcement having a swath of negative backlash.”

Posted By | On 02nd, Aug. 2017 Under News | Follow This Author @Pramath1605


The Xbox One has not had the best time of late as far as perception among the gaming audience goes. There is at least some level of negativity there- however, at least one developer is now tired of every Xbox announcement being met with some level of backlash.

Speaking to This Gen Gaming, Paul Norris of Mad Fellows, the folks who developed Aaero, noted that the console war is ‘hell’, and that he was glad to step away from it personally.

“[I am] excited for the Xbox One X. I understand that people have criticisms but, to be completely honest, I’m tired of every announcement having a swath of negative backlash,” he said. “The guys I play online with (and watch E3 keynotes with) decided long ago that we’d just get excited for stuff that looked cool and if we didn’t like something we’d just let it go. The console wars are hell, man. We’re never going back there! The games they showed off, like Metro, looked like a considerable jump in quality. I just need to save up enough to get one on launch day!”

It is important to note that Aaero is not an Xbox exclusive, so he really does not have any vested interest here- he is just noting his opinion, that console wars can get tiresome. Which is hard to not agree with. While I have a lot of problems with how Xbox (and PlayStation and Nintendo) conduct themselves, too, at the end of the day, I am just in this to play games- arguing about the hardware those games run on seems to me to be missing the point.

    The backlash is set from the expectation of uncompromised 4K.
    So blame Microsoft for all the “it’s a Monster” hype claims.

    Seems nearly every 3rd party game is now some form of checkerboarding, dynamic or variation of it and now and to cover that, it’s been called “true” (still fake) 4k.

    Showing a racing game with cutboard crowds at 4k Native 60fps using 60% of the power….doesn’t help since 3rd party games that actually push the hardware can’t get anywhere near that. Just the common Checkerboarding at a salty 30fps.

    • S. Cruz

      Lol its 1st party studios that push the hardware, never 3rd party, but nice try.

    • Wei Feng

      Project Cars with dynamic lighting and weather didn’t push the xbox.
      But Forza’s set time of day , less cars and prebaked lighting did.

    • S. Cruz

      Lol every console is pushed by its first party titles that’s the way it always been, but it’s okay believe what you want

      Keep at it, loser.

    • Wei Feng

      Defend and make sure your checkerboarding is seen
      as the most truest of fake 4K.

      Defend that 30fps Jaguar CPU powerhouse of a Monster.

    he is just noting his opinion, that console wars can get tiresome. Which is hard to not agree with.

    That’s exactly why – of all gaming sites out there – yours is one of those which heavily rely on console wars for clickbaiting, I suppose.
    It would be very admirable of yours if you (@Gamingbolt) walk the talk and stop stirring up controversy with clickbaiting titles and also stop giving visibility to the likes of Michael Pachter who – at this point – is a certified minion of a corporation I’m not going to name.
    Finally, banning trolls and haters would be a great contribution to the cause against console wars.
    You give us tons of interesting insight of the industry, which is always shadowed by petty arguments on the comment sections or obnoxious conjectures written by a bunch of this site’s writers. Dualshockers has proven that you can write news without fueling useless console wars and be successful at that.

    PS: not my intention to show disrespect, but I’m honestly fed up with the fact that I can’t enjoy reading an article anymore because there’s something toxic in it or in the comment section.

    • Smart guy

      When you have ppl like xrat and all his alts that’s that toxic waste. Definitely agree that’s it be nice rto just read an article without all the bs that follows.

    • heima

      People reply to his comments as if they would get some logic from him. Just ignore him, once gaming sites realize that people like him are useless, they’ll bann him. Wishful thinking, since trolls keep trolling and people love arguments for the sake of it.

    • zcar_driver

      Mr xrat can be blocked in the Disqus app/site. The only problem is he has a lot of aliases. I just skip over his comments now. Although his comments are funny sorta.

    • Dougdec92

      i do agree with you, it is idealistic and it isnt going away, we have all been a participator to trolling at some point in time, directly or indirectly.

      So far as there is a conflict of ideas, there will always be a war of sorts and let’s be real about it. The best that we can all do is to be civil about how we may reply to others and actually contributing insightful knowledge without sounding condescending. Accepting a mistake goes a long way to make things better too.

  • Holeybartender

    This guy is so full of s@#! trying to sell himself like he’s not all high and mighty. ” I just need to save up enough to get one on launch day” my a$$ you have to save money.

    • Robby Bisschop

      And you know how much money he is making on this how? It’s an indie dev and the game was made by TWO people. Please think before you spout hate. Paul’s been nothing but kind and honest, an example for the gaming community!

    • Holeybartender

      The thing is $500 and its not like he’s make $30,000 or less like normalpeople.

    • phoxache

      Normal…. people….. I’m not normal people now? This is the problem. Everyone thinks devs are rich and spoiled? You’re jealous of something I and most other indie devs don’t even have! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/2f8099b4990f5862c8647003f539de07cf1d67f2b143dbb0ec51128ee433a68d.jpg

    • phoxache

      I made Aaero right here in the back room of my house next to the washing machine.

    • Holeybartender

      Yes,normal people. People who work at Walmart or two jobs or people who make your McDonald’s to go.Not rich and spoiled but I bet you make $50,000 plus a year.Do you have to save for an entire year or more for a $500 Xbox or trade your last gen system and games for a measly $150 off to get one? I bet not.

    • phoxache

      What is wrong with you? Do you think the game was made for free? Very few indie games ever break even. No, I categorically don’t make $50k+. The fact is, I have to save for the Xbox One X. Just like I said in the interview. I have 2 kids and a mortgage. Why you feel the need to second guess my financial situation is beyond me. I could give you examples and explain myself til the end of time. I just spent 2 years sitting in the back room making a game. So did Dan (the programmer). I don’t know what you’re finding so unlikely.

    • Learned Handgun

      I’m stocked for the game man, thanks for dedicating your hard work and passion. Sorry you got insulted by Holy. Tons of trolls on this website. Something about Sony fans. Their “awesome” console and games leaves them empty and bitter so they come here to lash out.

    • Fweds

      Most of the people posting here are actually One person using multis, he is a well known obsessive Sony fanboy who appears on every bit of Xbox news to post negative nonsense.

      Notice how most comments that are negative toward Xbox have Fake Ghost Upvotes all around 15 votes, that is because he uses an Upvote Bot.

    • phoxache

      It’s so strange. I can’t imagine why people would go to these lengths to try to prove a point. Crazy! 🙂

    • phoxache

      Holeybartender – by the way, you’re wildly overpaying for your washing machines. That one was £180. (recommend it too, in case anyone is looking for a decent Indesit). 😉

  • Mr Xrat

    lol

    • It_Is_What_It_Is

      Of course you would find it funny especially when he is talking about highway born accidents like you.

  • ProAssassin84

    Idiot. This guy knows Metro will be on PS4 to right?

    • Psionicinversion

      of course he does hes talking about the difference from the old metros to the new ones and its precisely your blind fanboism he hates

    • Troy Marcel

      And it will run better on the one x.

    • Smart guy

      In some instances it’s even been said Metro Exodus was designed for the X1X. It will be a multiplat game yes but for consoles it was designed for the X1X’s power.

  • Ocelot forgot his meds

    Indeed….The world is tiring of the pony mental cases. Poor fellas have lost their marbles devoting their lives to hating Xbox on the internet and social media.

    I just laugh and post this for the mental cases to enjoy….
