Still would pay 60 bucks for updated graphical version of Jedi Knight Outcast or Academy.

I would pay $60 for updated graphical version of Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries.

*sigh*

Because when Europe was a vast collection of ununified city-states that was so much better?

Mojang: We’re reducing the price of Scrolls. Here’s why…

Shorter Mojang: Our $21 price point was having trouble competing with the free Card Hunter and Hearthstone games.

Microsoft’s second round of layoffs: 2,100 jobs cut, Silicon Valley lab closed.

Well, they have to pay for that Minecraft acquisition somehow.

Microsoft published three games that I really enjoyed: Age of Empires, Rise of Nations (Gold) and Crimson Skies (PC).


All of which were like 15 years ago. Just sayin'

I get all that, I really do. I guess it's just the number itself - 2.5 BILLION dollars - that just seems surreally absurd to me for a digital boxy sandbox toy. If the brand has legs it may prove to be a sound investment but if it is a fad soon to be on the wane (as I suspect), MS may be screwed.

I don't think it's a fad. Every time I step away from MC, I come back 6 or 12 months later and get hooked all over again. My kids play constantly, and it's fun to play with them. Like Tetris, MC is a timeless design that has the potential to hook successive generations. That, and the worldwide name recognition is what MS paid $2.5B for.

This is so Orwellian it is surreal. Why is this not front page news every single day, with people being called to testify before Congress about abuse of Federal power? There ought to be a criminal investigation - why isn't there?

The news media are owned by the corporations that suck at the gov't teat. You'll never get stories like that.

The next really big news will be when they announce they are changing game engine.

I know that was a joke, but they actually are changing the engine. cryengine doesn't support their game design and they'll be a year or more rebuilding it to support double precision. the current maps are so small because cryengine can't do bigger. chris roberts has implied they have more cryengine developers than crytek

I was boggled when they first announced this would be the engine, and I still am. Cryengine has a far render distance for an FPS, but it's still an FPS engine. I just don't understand this decision. Maybe easier to take an existing engine like this with all the graphical bells and whistles you want and mod it to handle space than the build your own from scratch?

@ Sho.

1. I think it looks about as good as NWN2. Definitely better than 90s level BG or PS:T.

2. Although I'm not seeing everything that you are, I'm wondering what you're expecting for $4M?

3. What's a game that does this better? Diablo 3?

Also, I'm not so sure this was secret. If it was secret, why did they name it "Gaming Journalism Professionals?" Seems not that secret.

Maybe because Game Illuminati was taken? Oh, that's probably another conspiracy!

Right, all of those stories were op-eds. It's important to remember that. Still it's annoying that they all colluded to have the same op-ed at the same time with essentially the same headline, one which could be interpreted as tarring all gamers with a broad brush.

I hope those guys were just playing around, and weren't going to start shooting the shit out of any curious coyotes. Notice the howler has a pretty serious rifle across his knees.


I'm sure they'd take home whatever they killed. Coyote burgers, coyote liver pate, coyote mittens, etc. They're quite versatile feedstock for humans.

Really? People eat coyotes? Thats awesome. Id like to try some one day.

Pretty sure that was sarcasm from jdreyer!



Yeah, I've never heard of people eating coyote. Given that they're scavengers, I'd imagine the meat to be pretty rank.

It looks like PBS NewsHour doesn't believe in actually checking any facts before posting fake news. So who ordered the burgers & fries there?

Well, they're just reporting what a couple of people said. This is a typical he-said-she-said story with no research involved.

I think it's much more this:
“The majority of us are certainly against hateful behaviors,” he said. “I don’t think anybody wants to see anyone else’s lives ruined.” He referred to Quinn as a “catalyst” for a larger conversation among gamers about unbiased game journalism.

And a lot less this:
Dan Golding, director of the Freeplay Independent Games Festival in Australia, offers a different view. He wrote in a post on his blog that the hate that some gamers have aimed at Quinn is the result of male gamers fearing they will become irrelevant to gaming culture.
