Game Freak? As in the Pokemon guys? How did they get free of Nintendo to make a game for other platforms?

PS Mobile really became redundant once Sony lowered the barriers to producing native Vita games. And unlike PSP Minis, there wasn't a wider console audience (e.g. PS3/PS4) to form a larger user pool out of.

Word is the max size area you can build is 36 km. This is versus the hefty 2km limit of EA's Sim City. Don't you just love EA and Maxis?
36km x 36km, or 36km2? Because Sim City 2013 was 2km x 2km, or 4km2.

The game map is 10km by 10km. It's made of 2km by 2km tiles that you purchase to expand from your starting tile. By default you are limited to 9 2x2 tiles of your choosing for 36km^2 of irregularly shaped playable area but there are already mods which open up all 25 tiles in one game for the full 100km^2 map.

I'm enjoying CSL a lot so far.
100km2? Damn. That's big.

I thought Interplay went kaput like three or four times and finally died some time ago? Are they just a shell company now and being dicks about their IPs?
Correct. Interplay now only exists to sit on classic IPs and to try to license them out for exorbitant amounts of money.

Considering Interplay still owns the IP, this project leaves me uneasy. No one can screw things up like Interplay can, and I hardly want to see them rewarded for being the punks that they are.

Well he says in the video "We've got the name". To me this implies they licensed the use of it.

And 5 seconds of looking at the comments on the Kickstarter confirms this.

Creator Descendent Studios about 2 hours ago
1. We have the license
2. VR annoucement is coming
3. SIngle player is on roadmap - but planned for after MP, unless we hit it as a stretch goal
4. Scrip and Pals can be earned in match
WM
Just to be clear, I know that much. Which is why I'm uneasy about the project: because Interplay is involved and would profit from it.

Interplay being your publisher was bad news 15 years ago. It's not any better news in 2015.

After a 4 month wait from the first episode, no one should be buying this until the series is complete. The episodic nature is cool, but 4 month waits are the difference between eagerly anticipating the next episode and forgetting what happened in the last one.

Agreed. It's clear it's not perfect, but it's reviewing better than any other city sim has in a very long time.

Looks Supreme Commanderish. With any luck it'll be at least half the game that was.
Saw it in person. It looks very SupComish. They're even doing full LoS checking and ballistics. Which is great, because I loved SupCom.

For me, this looks like a chaotic micromanaging nightmare. But I'm sure other people better at RTS will appreciate this game
The game will feature meta-units to cut down on the micro. Assign a bunch of units to a meta, and then order around the fewer metas. All of the units within a meta will work together and take up appropriate positions to achieve that goal (arty will automatically go to the rear, etc).

Since they can't decide who owns it, sounds like we're all clear to pirate the hell out of it. I bet re-releasing it would get someone to find the paperwork.

I despise piracy in general, but it's hard to argue. There's practically no other way to get the game.
Indeed. I'd respect these guys if they wanted to be punks about it and just charge an absurd amount (it's their property), but not putting it up for sale when there's no marginal cost and someone is already prepared to do the heavy lifting? That's just sad.

The world would be a poorer place without Matt and Trey in it.
I'm really hoping they finally get their Oscars (and join the EGOT club) with the movie version of The Book of Mormon. Mel Brooks is the only comedian so far to reach EGOT status.

Seeing as how PCs are already the minority platform, being the minority within the minority is not much of a winning strategy...

Hey my question is who even uses MS support for XP?
Big companies. Really big companies who need security patches for the OS so that they can continue to semi-safely use it.

This actually looks pretty fun. Reminds me a bit of old school fun with CS.

Was going to say, looks like CS.
I was going to say someone crossed BF4's gunplay with UT's assault mode.

Anyone know if Uprising ever got a DVD/Bluray release?
It never had a disc release. However in a measure of retrograde mercy, Disney was releasing it on iTunes alongside its original airing, so you can still get the complete series (in HD no less) through iTunes.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/tv-season/tron-uprising-vol.-1/id518763883

It's also on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009KSBKIY/ref=dv_dp_ep1

In fact AFAIK this is the only way to get it now. Disney has pulled it from Netflix and other streaming services, don't stream it from their own site, and I'm a bit surprised they haven't pulled it from Amazon/iTunes yet.

Ah, I'll have to check it out when bored (too much other stuff to see and do). Too bad no reruns to record. Did it even have a series ending?

Nope, not really, but that only makes you even more angry at Disney for not continuing the show.
Well to be fair, the series can only end in one way. (Spoilers)

Clu wins, TRON is captured and reprogrammed, and most likely Beck is de-rezzed.

You could also take the cheaper price and then turn around and spend half the savings on a VPN and give them the finger.

To be fair, I really doubt there's a VPN service that would be willing to handle 1Gbps of traffic for standard prices. Or for that matter is capable of delivering anywhere near that rate.
