Bayonetta 2 on a Nintendo console? Huh. That is not something I was expecting.

It's a dumb barrier. Instead of Valve hiring a handful of people dedicated to keeping Greenlight clear, the put the expense on the indie developers.

Valve makes money of those sales too. Let them pay the price. They're the ones wanting more product to sell.

Wow what a shitty coroner.

How about "14 year old tragically hangs himself after suffering from clinical depression."?

Few tiny indies are going to fork out a hundred bucks just to enter a popularity lottery in hopes that maybe their game will be sold on Steam.

If you are an obscure indie author you might as well throw your hundred in the trash can for all the chance you will have.

Yup. My blind friend plays games for the story. She can't necessarily get past a lot of twitch reflex combat or stuff like quick time events. That happens when you have a tenth of an eyeball left for vision. Why game developers still can't understand that baffles me.

It's too bad we don't have a legislative body that could take care of privacy issues like this.

It just sounds like EA is doing a sloppy cheap port to cash in on Wii U's newness.

We won't know what the Wii U can really do until a year and a half or so after it has launched.

The fact is they couldn't keep any of their promises. I hold people to their word, and when someone can't live up to it multiple times that doesn't bode well.

THAT'S RIGHT PARDNERS, THIS SHERIFF RUNS A TIGHT SHIP

I was hoping for the actual classic games. That would have been nostalgic.

Is that the same Van Caneghem who used to run New World Computing and do all those Might and Magic games?

Meh. I hope this gets worked out by Christmas. I sort of wanted one of the Galaxy phones. I'm sure as hell not spending any money on Apple.

Samsung says it's the consumer's champion and Apple is riding on smug righteousness.

In the end it's still two mega-corporations fapping over what peons will get to buy when the lawyers are through.

No consumer is going to win here.

Maybe investors will finally figure out that the "I'm bored at work" market isn't all that lucrative.

MS needs to bring the awesome if they expect me to fork out and so far I'm not seeing it.

I don't care about metro or the little store they're trying to build on top of it. If that is their main selling point for Win8 then I'll pass.

Why the hell would anyone bring a class action suit against ebay anyway? They're just a virtual broker.


Ebay owns Paypal and there are plenty of people mad at Paypal.

Soo...

The stuff he listed - like the auction house short-circuiting player progress pacing and the inability to set monster difficulty...

Those are pretty obvious flaws, are they not? I mean, one of them was something you could do in D2. Why wouldn't they include that in D3?

It's like they made a game and learned nothing from their past title and thought little about how new inclusions would affect things.

Poor design.

I just watched the Battlechess footage and I'm not surprised that it wasn't funded.

Crotch-grabbing knight vs. Queen doing the robot didn't come close to selling it for me.
