Given this studio's near constant lack of quality output (Alice being the one title I can think of that anyone was even remotely fond of), I still can't believe people gave him $200K.

From what I've been reading and watching, this game is a steaming pile, full of bugs, input lag and crash issues. I must say I'm shocked that a game backed by both Kevin Dent and 505 Games would be an unfinished mess. Seriously, shocked.

It's time, Nintendo: Kill Wii U and think big.

"It's dead, Jim."


Same thing people said about the 3DS too, that the market had "moved on" from such things. Funny how little crow we've seen eaten.

Don't believe the "dispelling HD myth" article. Stay away from Seagate drives, they're shit, and have been shit for a very long time.

I'll take Seagate over Toshiba any day. I was quite disheartened to find out that Toshiba recently got into desktop drives and are appearing in a lot of OEM desktops now. Their drives are hot garbage.

To save someone else the time, that Nintendo thing from Slashdot has nothing new to add.

The "enthusiast" press always needs someone to hate. It used to be Sony, now it's Nintendo. Controversy drives clicks.

Do they define laptops as PC"s? Does anyone still buy towers and monitors? I can't remember the last time I saw a desktop PC.

They do count laptops. Full Windows tablets I'm not 100% sure about but I think I read they were counted too.

Bethesda is a company like no other. They kept releasing hits after hits, add mod support, rich content dlc, highly configurable for pc user etc. I have good faith in them.

Yep. Aside from the fact that they're still using an ancient engine (and outright lied to their fans that Skyrim was an all-new engine, it was just a rebranding of GameBryo that they got to keep when it's makers went under), their support for the PC scene is incredible. I really hop their next-gen games will actually be on a new engine.

The concept of this game is cool but it involves both 505 Games and Kevin Dent. I'll definitely not be going anywhere near it until there's plenty of reviews and community opinion on it.

I'm sorry you're devoid of the understanding of sarcasm.

Or maybe, just maybe, it's your fault for posting something stupid and then acting like a bratty little child when called on it. Grow up.

This is the best they could do for Winamp? Seriously? Considering Spotify isn't even available outside the US or UK, they've basically cut the Winamp audience by a massive amount. Absolute idiocy. Well, at least there's xmplay.

Gearbox isn't publicly owned, so there's nothing for anyone to sue over.

Weird, looks like they're using Unity to develop it. Seems odd considering that they spent years making their own engine for NS2. Maybe they're just using Unity for prototyping.

I hope so. I keep hearing all these people saying that Unity games can look amazing and just like Unreal Engine etc. but I have yet to see a good example of that.

I always pay attention to everything Double Fine makes but after what has so far been pretty terrible project management on the part of Broken Age, I'm going to wait for one of these (what, 4 or 5 now?) games they have in development to actually come out before putting down any more money.

So gog does it. Origin does it. Gabe? You over there? Time to keep up with the Jonses...


To be fair in a Devil's Advocat-ey kind of way, this only applies to EA titles on Origin, not anything published by anyone else. Don't get me wrong, I think everyone should be doing this and given Valve's "we're all about consumers" attitude, they should be at the forefront of such a policy, not lagging behind GOG. But yeah, the digital distribution industry as a whole has a long way to go on this front. There will be those who abuse it but that's easy enough to track and as GOG has demonstrated when it comes to piracy, making it easy for the thieves doesn't mean no one will step up and pay. Given the over 10GB of GOG titles I have, many of which I've barely played, I can attest to it.

Telltale has some amazing writers, which makes me wonder how they're going to make compelling Borderlands stuff.

What I kinda of wonder is how *many* writers they have.
And graphics artists, and ai coders, and and and everything else.

Will we ever see the end of The Wolf among us, Walking dead season 2 AND this Borderlands series anytime during 2014?
I'm definitely not buying TWD s2 until it's close to complete. I wouldn't say I regret buying The wolf among us as it was pretty darn awesome, but I think I might have done differently now.

I remember hearing on Idle Thumbs recently that Sean Vanaman said just before they left Telltale that the company was up to 150 people and growing. They certainly have the number of staff needed to handle this, but I an curious if all those people have the talent. We'll see. But yeah, I have zero interest in Borderlands "lore" as long as Anthony Burch is "writing" it.

Looks extremely cool, but it's way too big of a project for some indie devs.

As opposed to what Star Citizen dev's that have almost nothing to show for it other then a hanger that a 10 year old kid could write?

So if a 10 year old can write it, I gather you should be able to whip one up in no time to prove just how much more talented you are right? Go ahead, we'll wait.

Telltale has some amazing writers, which makes me wonder how they're going to make compelling Borderlands stuff. I love the game play of Borderlands but Anthony Burch is the laziest kind of writer, the kind who just points at pop culture references or jokes others made before and expects you to laugh as if it's original humour. It's the Carlos Mencia equivalent writing, copycatting at best.

Pachter being Pachter. He loves to rile up Nintendo fanbois and that's what he's doing. Even when Nintendo was riding high on the Wii, he liked to take the piss out of them. Now, journalistic outlets would realise that this type of click-baiting all but destroys his credibility as an analyst (which frankly doesn't come with a lot of it to start with) but well, the games press loves easy clicks. If someone like him was in charge of Nintendo, they would have been dead and buried years ago.
