Wolfentein - $30! Very fun game!

That is cray cray. It came out like three weeks ago!

And everyone, please buy Shadowrun Returns. If it sells enough copies, they will hopefully make more campaigns for it, and the Berlin one was awesome.


Yeah, it better sell enough that Machine Games does the Wolf sequel!

And +1 for Shadowrun as well! Give your devs a nice dinner, go buy that stuff NOW!

edit: Wolf is showing as #2 in sales right now, which for $30 is good. Also enjoyed the graphic of the pink team doing the old table toss.

Awkward...

On the flipside, if you're Tim Cook and you're the head of the second-most lucrative company in the world, and you have more money than most countries, what do you care if people know you're gay or not? Is that still such a major issue?


To be clear, the reason I sent it in was not "ha ha - Tim's gay", but what made me laugh was everyone going along, trying to chime in with something different, and then once the one guy says it, this hilarious awkwardness stops the entire conversation, and they all look at each other like "OH FUCK".

The video of it is at the bottom of the article...

Oh I know, that silence was hilariously awkward.

Yeah, you just know as soon as they went to commercial, everyone screamed "WHAT THE FUCK?" at that guy.

"Were you alive and computery in the early- to mid-1990s?"

Er, the golden age of DOS gaming was alive and well a long time before that. Damn kids...

I remember, after playing the hell out of Wing Commander, WC2 come out and required a either a 16 or 25mhz proc. And I had a measly 12...I was so pissed...

Here is a picture to go along with drone war crimes. When you detach them from reality, then they can avoid consequences of their actions from killing people, of feelings of remorse or apathy. Obama in his infinite well of hypocrisy thinks its a joke, "watch out, we'll drone you."

Hate to break it to you but this has been how wars are fought for many years now. Pilots don't engage in "whites of their eyes" dog fights anymore. In fact a lot of times they'll fire a missile from 100 miles out and never see the opposition. Bomber pilots drop precision munitions from miles up where they can't even make out the structures on the ground and then they fly back to their home base which is thousands of miles from the battlefield. Pilotless aircraft were always the next logical step in the evolution of aerial warfare.


Exactly. Remember the 90s gulf war, where the tomahawks would basically follow the pattern of the road for miles and miles? When was the last time we heard about a dog fight? None of this is new...

Missed the sale. Was sleeping.

I hope it's show up as a "best of" sale on the last day or so...I'll keep an eye out.

edit:
A port for the Nokia N-Gage is also being worked on, but there is no ETA yet.

HA, didn't notice that as first!

So the second is really good? Ive ignored these games on account of the first one being a horrible showelvare piece of shit, which somehow still managed to sell well...

V2 was my first experience with the series, and I really enjoyed it. It was fun sneaking around, and then guiding bullets into people's eye sockets/ball sacks/right lung, etc...

Watch this new Super Mario Bros. speed run record and be amazed.

The double jump at 4:30 had me scratching my head. I've not played it in 20 years, but how did he do that?

Muslim extremists have killed more westerners than North Korea, sure.

And that's the primary difference - if Muslim extremists killed almost only Muslims, they'd be viewed pretty similar to North Korea's government.

If they killed only Muslims - we wouldn't be involved.....

Totally true.

Does Rebellion seriously have nothing better to do?? How about fixing all those bugs in Sniper Elite 3?

Do you really want Rebellion's lawyers to fix those bugs?

Did the lawyers work for free, or did that money come from Rebellion? Cause if it did, it could have gone elsewhere. Like QA.
