Seems like the Playstation camera gimmick was one people liked a little too much...

What would you even do with almost a billion dollars?

Well, half of that goes to the gubmint straight away.

Only if you have the world's worst accountant. Most of that is getting taxed at 15%.

Counterpoint though- these crowdsourced taxi cabs basically have no liability or accountability.

Not that I'm against them though. Death to corporations! Long live the new flesh!

DDosing major corporations, making bomb threats, and mentioning jihadi rhetoric all seem a bit much for a bored high school student.

I am So. Fucking. Tired. of this franchise. So fucking tired...

I've been on sabbatical since grinding through Revelations. Even if the games were all great (big if) I simply can't stay interested in 1 a year and after missing a couple I'm not very excited to jump back in.

Pretty impressive how our most popular historical fiction series has made so few concessions to reality after a full console generation cycle. Still jumping into haystacks are we?

Never understood pre-orders. Games are not in limited quantity and the game never ages (or does so extremely slowly). I've been playing Dark Souls II a few months behind everyone and it's still amazing.

The Worstall rebuttal is pretty compelling. The three biggest autonomous experiments in social policy for the good of society (commies in Russia, Cuba, and China) all were socially regressive. At least with capitalism you have assholes you can count on.

I think Nolan North already looks exactly like Drake. Is the chin thing that big a hangup here? I feel like they just get nervous if they don't have bankable stars of someone they can control. That may be why they always do this without much input from the game studios.

Cardhunters is cool.

Question for the Hearthstone players- I don't play yet but may in the future. Is the amount of gold to buy this free wing later onerous enough that I should get in there and "mark" my spot?

Yeah oh man, this is like a novelization of the Harry Potter movies.

Expecting Prince of Persia level of quality. I like in the article when the guys spends a paragraph justifying why they're not going to pay a big name star to be in it.

To my eyes that human template article seemed to be more about haircuts. Some of them were close but I wasn't that impressed. I've never understood people that confuse Ben Kingsley and Patrick Stewart.

Censorship sucks and I have a hard time understanding why the brits accepted CCTVs and internet censorship. That being said, running a pornography business in Iran is punishable by imprisonment or death so yeah the West has still got it better.

Barring a few items through the years most of the items introduced have been pretty balanced. Generally they reduce overall damage output for opportunistic critical damage (axetinguisher, frontier justice).

I enjoy their special events. I usually come back and play for a couple weeks when they introduce some weird thing.

Kickstarter is very similar to the lottery or to gambling casinos: you're often told about how wonderful it would be if you win the Powerball...


I don't think this is a great comparison. Scuzzy and psychologically manipulative certainly describe Vegas and state run lotteries, but they are also heavily regulated. Vegas has to pay out a certain amount over a certain time period, get shut down. Same with state run lotteries, some one gets the pay out eventually. If either of these institutions ever just said "sorry, no one won, we're pocketing it" they would be dismantled.

Agree that Kickstarter should still by buyer beware though.

Binding of Isaac has progression. You unlock more powerful items for the next run as you go, and even unlock more of the game as you make it through. It's not as explicit as Legacy though.

I've been playing Tokyo Jungle and you unlock different animals on your runs too. The main thing about most rogues is that nothing beats knowledge acquisition.
