Wow, I came for the free Torchlight and they ended up throwing 10 more free games at me. I'll have to pick up the D&D pack tonight.

I actually found AP to be a lot easier to get started in than the previous games. Instead of just leaving you floating in space "good luck pilot!", it throws you into a plot right away.

Why is there a campaign against having Dr. Mario on the PlayStation 4?

Lab Zero Games:
because people wanted their money back when their voted character didn't make it into the final rounds of voting

Sounds like the contributors are the ones being scummy here. Yeah, Paypal sucks, but what do you expect when your customers start doing mass chargebacks?

...what?

They're holding the money on the chance that people might do chargebacks, not because they were actually doing them.

Read the links. That's a direct quote, and several commenters openly admit to doing it.

So, it appears that this game requires Steam (they all definitely say they come with Steam codes), but you can't buy it on Steam? How does that work?

Their attorneys got paid $831,479.55 for that $7.35 award. Nice!

Nice to see that Square Enix can JOKE about making a new game yesterday, only to announce real layoffs today.

I suppose the Deus Ex thing is upsetting because people genuinely crave another game in the franchise. I can also understand the people upset with Google, that they have time to work on these high-quality gags, but can't figure out where they are going with Google Local or how to gracefully monetize Google Reader.

Indiegogo is the same as Kickstarter, if you don't achieve the goal you get nothing.

That's incorrect. That campaign was listed as "Flexible Funding" campaign, so they still got to keep all the contributions.

Even a fraction of a second of invulnerability exiting a vehicle would be nice. I'm constantly getting weapon-locked because people jump out of my sunderers while I'm moving full speed and somehow get run over by me. Also, if I deploy on a steep incline, people will run up to resupply and spawn a bit too close to a wheel and get damaged by it even if it's parked.

Most of the watchtowers have the spawn dump people right into the room with the main control point. Gotta camp the room to cap the point, but now will only be getting a fraction of the xp the defenders will be earning.

I misread the title. Twice.

Must mean I really want a Bowser RPG.

What is more accurate here, is probably that the platform is losing out to smart phones. I see elementary school kids with Androids and iPhones all the time.

Indeed, as soon as my son started begging me for a device with built-in GPS and tracking software, I jumped right on it.

"Why aren't you home yet?"

"I'm still at school, working on a project."

"Really, because your phone is at your friend's house..."

"Be right home!"

OMG IT'S IN THE CLOUD!

I guess this could be useful for simpletons that have no clue how to maximize performance in a game. I fail to see how anyone even remotely capable would find this useful, however.

There is obviously quite a market made up of people who aren't even remotely capable. The beta signup is already full.

Free? Are they trying to atone for their on-disc DLC bullshit and other malpractice?

By "they" do you mean "some fan from Singapore"?
