The price of the base CaH game is $25, and it's black and white. this *appears* to be using color cards. My girlfriend works VERY part time (conventions) for a small game maker, the cost to produce something when you DON'T own the facilities is shocking. Go to a board game convention, see games that cost $45-$50, and there's just a game board, a bunch of cards, and maybe some wooden markers, and you think "why is this so expensive?". It's expensive because the people who OWN the facilities that can produce these things want to get paid for what they do, and small run stuff requires JUST as much set up as massive-run things.

The initial $10k is likely the smallest amount of money they could spend to get a factory to pump out even a small number of their card game. YES, -now- they're going to make a ton of profit, but the initial pricing was *just in case* they only hit 10K.

Um, no. One of my best friends owns a printing company and does stuff like this all the time. I use his services all the time. It's cheap. The most expensive part of the process would actually be the packing and shipping on that small a scale.

Technically Ronin were masterlass Samurai and therefore not considered to be Samurai. And no, Samurai were not Ninjas. Anyone could be a Ninja, not anyone could be a Samurai. Samurai despised Ninjas as they had no codes.

Thats all bullshit.. its saturday morning cartoon knowledge

"ninja" isnt even what they were called, thats more modern bullshit

samurai who had the balls to do crazy midieval black ops shit would get training from specific clans of other samurai who were specialists at sabotage and infiltration.. they were shinobi

but dont worry about it, mutant turtles are more your speed anyways

Don't transfer your stupidity onto me. Pick up a fucking history book sometime if you're capable because you clearly have no fucking clue what you're talking about. Christ, you don't even know what Samurai actually are. Then again, that's no surprise seeing as you can't even master rudimentary grammar.

Ahh minimalist artistic style, when you just can't be bothered with doing graphics.

That's the problem. This type of game interests me. The crappy graphics do not.

And when I saw the title I thought it was a Grow-Op simulator.

I read the story headline, does that make me an accessory? They'll never take me alive!

Sounds like where he belongs. He was an accessory to a crime, tried to cover it up, threatened people, etc. and now he treats it like it's all a big joke and that he's some sort of working class hero. The guy clearly needs psychiatric help as well as the time he received to reflect on how dumb he's been.

Then clearly the punishment for these consumer scams needs to be drastically increased because they're obviously not deterring anyone at this point, and only increasing in scope and frequency. Fuck it, let's implement a gulag style system where they work to live. No more country club jails.

That aside, I'd still like to see a good Samurai/Ninja game sort of Ass Creed meets feudal Japan sort of thing. Always loved Clavell's books and thought they'd make great games.

The NFL organization is a bad joke. Their pretense of having some sort of moral code of conduct would be laughable if it wasn't so sad. How many times does Cheaterchick get to cheat and get away with it? How many of the criminals in the league get to be criminals and get away with it? Pay a fine and off you go. That's the message they're sending. Lie, cheat, steal, do drugs, beat your wife, kill people, etc. and it's not only ok, you get rewarded for it.

I'm still having a hard time figuring out why this is cause for such alarm. Baseball teams doing all manner of ungodly things to the infield dirt or outfield grass in order to affect running and/or ball movement across those surfaces is just thought of as part of the game and a legitimate use of home field advantage. But take a bit of air out of a damn football and suddenly it's like Snidely Whiplash levels of skullduggery.

Exit question: Are baseball fans that much more accustomed to underhanded tactics, or are football fans that much thinner-skinned?

A) No one cares about baseball. Not even baseball players.

B) No one likes a cheater - except people who like baseball apparently.

C) This is consistent with Cheaterchik where if he's not actually cheating and breaking the rules, he's certainly going against the spirit of them. His whole win at any cost attitude doesn't belong in competitive sports. Yes, compete to the best of your abilities, but if you have to cheat to win you don't belong in the first place.

D) In spite of constant repeat offenses nothing ever happens more than a petty fine. It's like Pigeon said, in this respect they treat it as the cost to cheat.

E) It's doubly offensive because the NFL likes to pretend it's this upstanding organization that has actual scruples when they're just a massive bunch of scumbags that make even the biggest douchebag lawyers look good - probably because most of them involved are ginormous douchebag lawyers anyway.

Don't hold your breath fellas. This is most likely vaporware. I'll believe it when I see it.

The gap between rich and poor is growing - mostly on the poor side. Within the next 5 years most people will be worried about keeping a roof over their head and 3 squares a day.

Not really a pessimistic person myself, but I don't see anything incorrect about your prediction.

That's pragmatism, not pessimism. That's just reflecting on 30 years of grandiose claims about 'the next big thing!' which virtually never pans out. As others have stated, the control issues for these sorts of things is major. And people are fundamentally lazy creatures. It's way easier - and more practical - to sit at a desk with a mouse and keyboard to work and play games. It's why the Kinect failed. People had no desire to be jumping around like a spaz just to play a game or get something done. This shit always seems cool in the movies, but IRL? Enh, not so much.

Just shows Nutella isn't getting it either.

Google stock? $520
Apple stock? $110
MS stock? $45.

It boggles the mind. It really does. This isn't rocket science. You've got 100 million potential customers for PC games alone. Never mind general office/work stuff. And they still think tying this Xbox scheisse to their OS is the way to go? Boggles the mind.

Cutter you still seem to be having trouble with how the stock market works. The price of the individual share is only half the equation for the total valuation of the company. And even then it's still a very simplistic view. MS stock is $45 but the company has something like 8 billion shares. Google's shares are $520 but they have far fewer shares than MS, the total valuation of the company is actually less. (385bn for MS vs 345bn for Google). Of course Apple still rules the roost with a valuation of 636 billion. It's dat iPhone!

You're the one missing the big picture here. You have to look at what the companies have achieved over time. MS was the major player on the block when Ballmer took over. In 10 short years they blew past them on just about every front imaginable. MS has been failing...constantly. And it's only their OS and office software that's allowed them to remain. If you don't grasp this then I'm sure you think Ballmer and Nadella are just doing super work. Glad you're not my broker.
