April Fools! We are actually selling out to Myspace!

Hahahahaha.

I'm not that worried about SC selling. If a publisher had thought that a game like SC would make money, they'd have funded one.

If they only start selling 4K's, it will happen in time and I'm for that. Same price as they are today, just 4K.

4K doesn't have to stand a chance, it just has to be the only option and it will by default.

Didn't 3D do the same thing? Pretty much all new TV sets basically came with mandatory 3D shit on them, so people just didn't buy them.

Not sure that 4K is going to have much more effect. It's just yet another attempt by the TV manufacturers to make you buy a new TV set, and new cables and everything.

Fuck 'em.

That 4k TV story seems a little upbeat - like it's a press release or something. I don't know anyone who's going to run out and buy a 4K TV... wreaks a little of 3d to me.

Reeks. Not Wreaks. Reeks means "smells like." Wreaks means to "inflict something (usually vengeance) on someone."

Sorry, not meaning to be a pedantic ass.

Death threats... There really needs to be an entry-exam before you're allowed on the internet.

I mean, I'm pretty disappointed they went with FB, and I'm pissed at him for doing something that's going to heavily undermine trust in Kickstarter, but death threats?

The FBI needs to just investigate those and permanently disconnect the offending drooltards from the internet.

Seems I touched a nerve here. You pro-publisher guys want to share your Kickstarter levels and Early Access receipts?

This is extremely old news. This is exactly the reason Humble changed the way the redemption of games works in the account management screen, what like 6 months ago? Instead of giving serial numbers to be activated (that could be resold), you have to enter your Steam info and assign the games to the account. Or gift them directly to a friend to be activated on their account.


While the linked article is scummy, I'm not all that thrilled about (apparently, if I understand you correctly) having to give my Steam login credentials to a third party website?

Wasn't it like 8 years between HL1 and HL2? So let's say they just add 50% each time, we'll see HL3 in 2016, and then HL4 in 2034.

... Hmmm, that seems rather fast for Valve.

"I treat [Dropbox] like my hard drive," he tweeted. "This shows it's not private, nor mine, even though I pay for it."

OMG! o_O

Files in the Cloud not actually private! Extra Extra, read all about it!

The one big advantage of POTS phones is that even if your power is out, you can still make calls. Bundles phones don't have that.

I also find it fairly cute that all these states are saying "Let's get rid of the land line, so the telcos can put all that money into innovation and making internet access cheaper!"

Yeah, because that's going to happen...

Hard to argue with that argument. Whenever an actual innovative game comes out, few people buy it. The large majority of the drooling brotards just want Call of Duty and FIFA.

(Which completely sucks for that minority that DOES want innovative games, which also tends to be the same people that frequent gaming forums like these.)

However, to say that that is what's killing Nintendo is ridiculous. Since when is Nintendo a paragon of innovation? They've been making the exact same games for the last thirty YEARS. They make Call of Duty look like a mad risk-taking franchise.

I sense the smell of desperation. Steam has the marketshare.


I don't think that has anything to do with it. I don't believe EA's numbers for a bit (they claim like 40+ million users), but even so Origin is, perhaps sadly, doing pretty well for them.

This is purely done to save costs for printing discs and the like.

Eh, it was impressive they were supporting discs for this long. Anyone who is still not on digital by now is just deluding him/herself. (Psst, all three of you: It's not going away.)

It is a good idea, and I'm curious to see how it will work out. However, the cynic in me just thinks that this is nothing but a dev who wants to make cash off an MMO without having to spend time making actual content...

Large amounts of Microsoft's promises for the failbox are nothing but empty rhetoric, as more and more devs are beginning to find out.

BUT IT DOES STILL HAVE TEH CLOUD MAJICS!!!

Interesting study, too bad the government doesn't give a shit about saving millions. Taxes are an infinite source of income, after all.
