You don't have to install it immediately. Just click the install button. It won't automatically download.

It doesn't go into your library until it's installed.

The real shame is Nokia not getting into Android years ago.

So that they could be getting destroyed by Samsung, the same way every single other Android dev is?

But this is actually meaningful. They released resources reserved for Kinect. It's not PR fluff, it's an actual improvement. Modest, but still tangible.

No it's pretty much PR fluff, a 10% reservation isn't going to make up the difference in CUs and Microsoft can't do anything there without new hardware.

Consoles are kind of retarded these days, a glorified x86 PC that has to last 8+ years is absurd with the sort of pace we're seeing from other devices. Microsoft utterly failed PC gaming despite every advantage in the world so I shouldn't be surprised they are fucking up their console efforts too.

I guess it's just semantics, but to me, PR fluff is something like blast processing, which was entirely meaningless. Freeing up some resources reserved for Kinect isn't meaningless. Is it close to meaningless? Sure. Will it give maybe only a few fps? Sure. But that's still something tangible, as opposed to blast processing, emotion engine, etc.

Crazy. Maybe genius, maybe annoying, but it definitely makes me likely to play it now. Otherwise, it'd sit in my list uninstalled and unplayed likely forever.

I started Dead Island recently and, after spending an hour searching for 10 bottles of booze, I may be done with it. Maybe I'll switch to this.

dude, if you cant find booze there's something wrong wit you. the booze is everywhere. and besides that's a side quest, not important to worry about. As for Sniper Elite 2. that's a game worth playing especially Coop. I had a blast wit ha friend playing that GAME.

And Batman, lets be fair now. that game is a bit old now so yes the number of players is defiantly going to be low.

The issue is that the booz is in, like, 6 spots, and just regenerates. Twice I accidentally drank it because it put it in my hand instead of inventory. And it's a side quest, but I prefer doing some side quests.

Blast processing!

The power differences and resulting PR circus reminds me very much of the Super Nintendo vs Genesis days.. except MS fucked up big time compared to anything sega did in that generation. Can't wait to see their equivalent of the 32x

But this is actually meaningful. They released resources reserved for Kinect. It's not PR fluff, it's an actual improvement. Modest, but still tangible.

Morning Cutterbait?


Given it's own section, I think it could turn out to be pretty entertaining. Spread across the site, you wonder why he anytime the word "hunt" is in an article his comment is "Mike Hunt?"

1) It's his game he can do whatever the fuck they want in it.
2) The game has a dark side. Seen several npc's who frequently internet search the word 'rape' Not to mention the human trafficking part of the game.
3) Seen lots of funny shit like 'Steve White' who was a gay black guy (there is a joke in Steel Magnolia's 'All gay men have track lightin'. And all gay men are named Mark, Rick, or Steve') So I was laughing pretty hard about it.

1) Of course he can do what he wants with it
2) I have no idea what your other points have to do with it

I can see people saying that the kid is just trolling, and clearly he is, and clearly he's doing it well. But the whole "AND THERE'S NOTHING WRONG WITH KILLING WHITE PEOPLE!?" argument just has nothing to do with anything they're saying. It's a standard knee-jerk reaction to a knee-jerk reaction that I've come to expect from someone who either posts judging an article on the title or makes a non-sequitur "joke" everyone scrolls past ignoring.

Actually a tablet is ideal to play turn based strategy games. There are at least two games I would like to own an IPAD for. XCOM and Hearthstone. Sadly just those two games (one of which I have finished) are hardly justfication enough to buy such an expensive toy.

Yup. Strategy games tend to be more like chess, and there's little in the new X-COM I think would be hard to do via tablet. Grenades, maybe, but grenades were oddly hard to do via mouse, as well.

It's too bad. I had a Windows Phone provided by my employer for a number of months and quite liked it. The interface blows the dated one from iOS out of the water. My girlfriend has a Lumia 920 and swears by it. Given that there are as many Windows Phones in the world as there are Macs and per capita, its growth is surging while the other two are saturating, it kind of feels like a decent sized market to ignore.

It's a big market in countries that aren't big app buyers, and a small market in ones that are.

There are only a few apps I miss having. At least that I'm aware of. I'd kill to finally have Tinder, but whatever.

I do agree, though, that after using WP8 for a few days iOS feels outright ancient. It may have better features (actually, it absolutely has better features), but the actual design theory, getting anywhere, doing anything, or finding any information in iOS just feels like a hassle to me.

But going around killing and robbing white people is perfectly acceptable is it? Kotaku clickbait is just always wrong on just about every level.



The clickbait section really needs to become a permanent feature here, and every Kotaku article can immediately and automatically be relegated to it.

Can we have a section for every time Cutter comments on a title rather than an article?

Because the article is about a YouTube video titled "Making the World a Better Place" in which a guy walks down the streets in Watch Dogs and kills only black people, latin americans, muslims and gay people.

Cutter's comment makes it seem like he thinks the problem they are commenting on is that black people can be killed. No, what they're commenting on is people making videos in which they seek out minorities to kill and brag about under the guise of "making the world a better place." Even someone as "almost always positive" as Cutter has to admit that's fucked up.

It's also not at all related to the game, and would happen in any game, but that wasn't Cutter's complaint.

Yeah those words never would come out of a game designer or developer. Just front office suits. They should know better than ever trying to sell entertainment with such business words.

Someone has never been to GDC.

"dressed head to toe in designer casual wear—Ralph Lauren jeans, pristine white Y-3 Yohji Yamamoto sneakers, and a crisp Captain America T-shirt."

I barfed in my mouth a little - do people really look at someone and notice what brands they wear?

Many people do. Why do you think brands are so prevalent? I go out of my way to find stuff that's logo free. I'm not opposed to wearing branded material but not if I'm buying it. Want me to advertise your product you can pay for it.

Most of the good brands are logo-free.

I am one of the few people that actually liked the first one. Even in multiplayer. I will give this a go. Not a pre-order or a launch day purchase though. I liked the original but at the end of the day it was at best a competent shooter.

Than again, I liked Bulletstorm too. My taste in shooters doesn't seem to be line with many others if sales are any indication.

Bulletstorm was great. The marketing for it was crappy.

I never played the original Homefront, but I will say this looks interesting. I like the idea of asymmetric warfare playing from the underdog position.

I made it about 10 minutes in Homefront before I hated it. Gave it another 20 to work itself out, still hated it. Hated it.

Bulletstorm I loved.

This is coming from an interesting dev. Maybe not a great one, but an interesting one.

Not for me; growing up in NYC, there were two types of summer camps, day camp and sleep-away, my parents could only afford day camp so I was basically bussed upstate NY or to NJ for the day to explore a camp site.

Yup.
Lots of kids had a day camp to keep them occupied during summer vacation. Parents worked, so kids had to be sent somewhere. I only did sleep-away camp once, a 4 week one in Vermont or NH or some such, but did 3 years of a day camp that consisted solely of trips to the beach, the mall, the movies or the arcade.

Defensive, and responses aren't responses but attacks.

Though I guess I can't criticize, there are more than enough times I feel what someone is saying here is so asinine that it isn't worth engaging them on their points because they're too stupid and too far off to learn. But then again, I tend to use that on people who don't use points, rather they point to stupid articles.
