Can't make this stuff up.

We would have loved to add mouse support to the menu but we reached a point in the project where it was either going to be modding support or adding features such as mouse support in the menus. We chose modding.

So they removed the mouse support in the UI (which was in the original game). The dev rep can be quoted as saying, "we only had time to do mouse controls or mod support, and we chose mod support."

Correct me if I'm wrong, but in GTAV you still lose a car you bought if you trash it, or if you leave it and run away from it, correct?

You buy insurance for your permanent cars. If they are destroyed, you pay a little bit to get a new one. You can leave it anywhere you want, it's only when it gets blowned up you gotta pay the insurance.

Just the name "Techland" sounds like a B-list amusement park somewhere in the former Soviet Bloc.

I was under the impression XBone and PS4 were far more similar to PCs than their predecessors. Shouldn't the PC development run fairly parallel to the new consoles?

So why isn't the Oz government, or some businessman, doing something about it? Seriously, open up an Oz Amazon and the country will beat a path to your door.

The government recently had a committee investigate why the fuck games cost so much

The report includes a lot of suggestions AU may go about toward fixing the problem, but like most anywhere else in the world, money talks. Games are so expensive because EB Games, AU's largest physical retailer, wants them to be. While retail sales are still strong, digital has made a huge push in the past couple years. As digital sales continue to climb over physical, Valve et al will be able to exert more control over pricing than their physical counterparts, and pricing will likely fall. Well, maybe not likely, but hopefully.

Presumably due to pressure from local distributors.

First post nailed it, why is anyone still unsure? Everything under the sun costs more to consumers in Australia. The argument is that AU's high wages result in the high cost of goods (the minimum wage is $17).

Remember when Valve was suggesting digital delivery would lower the cost of games? Yeah? Well, turns out that's a two way street...

Homemade salsa:
0.68 2 lb tomatoes
1.09 1 bundle green onions
0.10 1/2 head garlic
0.30 1/2 bundle cilantro
0.20 1 lime
0.20 2 jalapeno peppers

I live in a city in Ohio. There is no market with prices remotely that low. And a jar of Pace salsa is $2 here.

And thanks for listing jalepeņos, I somehow left those out of my ingredients list x_x

BTW I made pretzels the other day and they are god damn amaazzzziiiiinnnggggg.

No, there isn't. You keep it up and I'll send Bud White after you.

It's not that easy to sell a slightly better toolset all over again, since a ton of people will just stay on the old version, especially on the PC where all the mods have already made Minecraft a hundred times better than anything MS can cook up.

Obviously you've never heard of The Sims.

Cooking from scratch can actually get stupid expensive. I've made relatively simple dishes that easily end up with a food cost rivaling the price of a meal at a restaurant. I use a simple salsa recipe (roma tomato, green onion, garlic, salt, lime juice, cilantro, hot sauce) that costs significantly more than simply buying a jar of Pace.

It would be interesting to see what a Minecraft would look like with heaps of money thrown at it. As a concept, I like it. As a perpetually unfinished and ugly product without objective, I have no interest in actually playing it.

When probed for more details, Ellroy responded, "It's on the QT, and very hush-hush."

Actually no. But he totally should have.

No developer or publisher on the planet gives a shit whether somebody finds their game offensive, all they want is for people to buy it. It's only an issue with the ESRB, and they aren't to the point of saddling a title with "AO for crude humor, drug reference and gross protagonist misogyny".

A rant on some bleeding heart's blog isn't going to override market forces.

Corrupt news media =/= corrupt video game reviews

News media has an obligation to accurately report content and provide context. The Fourth Estate is critical to functional democracy. Knowing whether The Sims 4 is good or not without playing it oneself? Not so much.

In that way, it perfectly fits "gamergate," which in the grand scheme, is extremely trivial, but matters to the people it matters to (duh.)

I don't know to whom it matters. I'm as hardcore a "gamer" as any and I really could not care less about ANY of this shit. I've always known reviews could only be taken with a grain of salt, and somebody somewhere has always found video games offensive. Maybe so many people are talking about it because games have been shit lately and they're all as bored as I am.

It will never, ever happen. Because there are only two things to write about in games:
1) PR. 99% of news comes directly from the studios themselves. There isn't much reporting to do here
2) Editorials, including reviews. Still, not much room to do anything here, either


I don't get why you think there's any difference at all between movies and video games as far as journalism. People enter into journalism because a) they like to write and b) they have a passion about something. That's why magazines like Knitting Monthly exist.
