That's necessary, not generous.

He's releasing the game for free, fixing it, and allowing refunds from anyone who bought it. What is your skewed definition of generous?

Sure, but perhaps others would have blamed him (and other developers) without understanding why. I can respect his decision to vent, especially given his interpretation of the data.

Enjoyed the first one. Was planning on picking this up. I don't blame him for moving on but it would have been better if he just said nothing. Less sturm und drang that way.

Sounds more like an inside job from one of the SJWs.

I'm with you on questioning the credibility of the threats, but there is nothing here that supports any notion that it was an 'inside job.' The FBI isn't going to spend time tracking down anonymous internet threats to a gaming convention panel, and it's far easier and cheaper for SXSW to just cancel the panel than have to deal with this.

How do companies with large, varied sets of characters still manage to not exploit our nostalgic love for childhood IPs? I had never heard of this game before and now I'm tempted to buy it at retail price simply because I can buy He-Man and GI Joe characters to play it with. What fools manage these companies?

Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, and Portal 2 all offer split screen. Other games offer same screen coop. Magicka, for instance.

They should create a tabletop augmented reality version of the game. It seems like such an obvious extension of the technology. They wouldn't need to put much thought into it.

Games like Audio Surf, geometry wars, Beat Hazard, etc... are the indie type games that will get decimated by this policy. They are the type of impulse buy games that people will eventually think, "great game but I'll return it and wait for it to be $2.50" after an hour of playing.

What is wrong with this? If after an hour of playing you feel like it's not currently worth the asking price, you should feel entitled to a refund. Playing for an hour is not the same thing as owning the title.

I don't get the hate for businesses trying new things to acquire money. Making money is the point of a business after all. And it's not like they switched their entire business model to this. I see this as an attempt to try something new(however silly it is). It will probably fail, but good on them for giving it a shot.

Cabin in the Woods could have been great, but the ending, and a few scenes near the ending, killed it for me.

I was bored until the end. The end is what saved the movie for me.

"Pseudo-retro" seems like it should be a classification for some art styles. I see a lot of games nowadays that has what looks like a pixellated look but really seems to... not really be. Like drawing what looks like a 24x24 pixel image, but with 2x2 or 4x4 pixel blocks, complete with weird special effects that are non-pixel.

I usually am not a fan of that look.

I could agree with that term. *hammer down* "Pseudo-retro" is now an official category of art-style. The Gods of Classification have spoken!

I wouldn't call the graphics "retro-style" necessarily. Some of the images are a bit pixelated, but the game displays at a higher bpp than the 8 or 16-bit look I would associate that term with. Also, the animations are much smoother than an older game and the effects, like the smoke, shadows, and lighting, dash away my labeling of this as retro, imo.

The game looks fun, but I will wait until it is dirt cheap enough for me to pick it up.

I could never get into the FF. Reed is one of the most boring characters in the Marvel Universe. I was never much of a fan of the outer space stuff, either. I cringed every time I had to read an issue of X-Men(my personal favorites) where they ended up in space or(well, "and" really) Asgard. For that matter, I also can't stand issues with magical themes(Excalibur was painful to read for me, but I just love Nightcrawler so much).
Anyway, I'm not sad to see the FF go, though I do respect its place in the history of the medium. And besides, it, along with Wolverine and Frosty the Snowman, will be back again someday...probably around the time when the new movie tanks and Marvel gets the film rights back.

Discrimination against anyone for the way they look/act/who of legal age they sleep with is wrong. And that applies to discrimination against straight white males.

Of course.

LGBT gamers can feel free to have a gaming con; however that does not seem to be inclusive to me. So it's as wrong as having a straight white males gaming con.

The status quo's voice is heard in normal conversation. There isn't a need to represent the majority as, especially in this case, it is already well represented. Games that feature human characters tend to feature straight white males. How often do we play games where we star as a LGBT person? Even games that feature, say, black or hispanic males are few and far between. These cons are a good way to tell businesses that, in case they forgot, minorities buy games, too.
