His "exploit" requires you to have access to the console.

Wow. What a non-story. There are probably a million ways to make the game crash or otherwise screw up when you have access to the console.

Trucks, etc. all come in automatic too. It's an okay skill to have, but you can go an entire lifetime and never need or use it.

If that kids parents think a manual is going to keep him from texting and driving, well... That's cute.

PC Manufacturers without tablets or mobile devices angry they didn't release a tablet or mobile device - blame it on Windows 8.

That's my version of the headline.

Seriously, if your big sales push relies on somebody else to hype up the entire industry you'll just have to take the lumps that are handed to you.

It's not that problematic. Keep proper sales records and fork them over to a CPA. Build that cost into your Kickstarter. Problem over.

If DF ever gets a decent interface I will definitely check it out again. At the moment it's a little too grognard for me. I just don't have that kind of time to invest.

Huh. I actually thought they would do more DLC than that for Skyrim.

I'm more than ready for FO4 though. I don't really care who makes it at this point. Both Obsidian and Bethesda had their good points for that game.

Take it from me. I have it at work. Apart from performance (which is on par with Win7) Windows8 is the worst windows ever released by Microsoft.

No it's still not worse than Windows ME.

Windows 8 is basically just like 7 if you run the classic shell.

PC sales are probably slumping because there's no reason to upgrade as often anymore. Desktop computers got "fast enough" for most people a few years ago and when you have a desktop that's "fast enough" and you have cash to burn, you start looking at tablets and smartphones and other gadgets like that.

My desktop from ages ago will still run most of the new games at high settings. Why upgrade? Well, I still did because I enjoy building them and I'm a gamer, but most won't.

I'm giving Garriot one more shot with this so I hope he goes all out. Ultima 5 was my personal favorite. I thought 5, 6, and 7 were the best of the entire series.

I looked at this a while back and the price for the whole bundle turned me off.

Now I'm looking at Stardrive on Steam instead.

Dungeon Crawl Stone Soup is a pretty fun Roguelike. I'm going to check out Infinite Space whether it's a Roguelike or a close-enoughlike or maybe a whateverlike. It still might be fun.

It makes sense. They added more stuff to do so they have to add more development time. I'm cool with that.

I just buy Nintendo consoles for Zelda and Mario - so whenever they release those games I'll look at Wii U. By then it will probably have had a price drop too.

Some big, dumb, company that hates emulation will find a hardware patent violation and then stomp all over Ouya.

Is watching more Youtube and less TV really generational (aside from Boomers)?

Seems to me like it's just something everyone 40 and under is just doing by default.

I sort of wanted to like it, but after seeing them in motion the new Gorn just come off as generic lizardmen straight out of any RPG.

They don't even wear clothes. At least they could have kept their weird compound eyes. Meh.

Garriot is trying to alienate all of his game dev peers in one fell swoop.

Well, it's true. But he's set for life and can say what he wants. Maybe some of the designers will even wake up. Maybe it'll be good to have someone around who doesn't have to worry about his next paycheck, yet still seems to have a real interest in actual gaming. He can go out into the industry press and shake some trees.

Or maybe he's just a really good self-promoter and is using his press time to make a lot of noise so his Kickstarter gets even more money.

We won't really know the answer to that until everyone sees what he's made.

This could even be one of those John Romero moments where we witness the beginning of the end.

I share the same sentiment. I got in at $25 mostly to see what Richard Garriot can do. I'm not 100% that he is even a good designer anymore, but I'll give him one more shot for old time's sake.
