Except that they're doing pretty well? The 3DS is very successful despite intense competition from the mobile market and the 2DS is just a bottom end thing to capture more of that.

I thought Jackman was done doing Wolverine films?

I think it was Michael Caine who was asked about one of the Jaws films and replied that "I haven't seen the movie but I've seen the house it built and it's terrific". So yeah money

They're probably paying Jackman 5-10mil for 5-6 months of work, I doubt he'll ever say no if they keep asking and in his place I wouldn't either.

At the rate you're going you'll have your own echo chamber soon enough Thundr. I can think of less than 10 posters who will even respond to you at this point and if you keep getting on my nerves it'll be 9.

I think most of us ended up about the same Blue so you had a pretty good week.

Ugh @ another Wolverine film, the last two were pretty mediocre PG13 affairs.

I don't think we'll be seeing Titan for a looong time, apparently it went through some sort of internal reboot.

Eh, to each their own. I'm not interested in time-trial stuff, but there were quite a lot of challenges in that DLC that really tested your mastery of Corvo's skills.

The other two DLCs were awesome, btw.

I'm kinda with him that time trial DLC stuff is obnoxious but the other 2 DLCs more than made up for it. Really interested in seeing more open levels for the next Dishonored now that they won't have console memory constraints to worry about.

Interesting points. I brought up India due to their rapid growth and where I suspect their industrialization efforts will be in 20 years. China and the US are very co-dependent at this point but I'm not very optimistic about regulation in either country, the US due to the rise of corporate power in politics and China due to their continual need for growth to keep the population happy outstripping other concerns. The US per capita figures are much higher than I recall though, that's disconcerting.

Do you really see India being an industrial superpower like the US and China? I can't say that I see them being a factor for a long time, they seem more destined for a services oriented economy. I can't say I agree with you that we need to bring China into the fold before we commit to significantly reducing our CO2 emissions, the Chinese have years of environmental study and impact catch up that needs to happen before they take it seriously. I just don't see an easy solution that doesn't involve major disruption to several industries.

Unfortunately, those days are over for the big games. EA isn't the only company to release shooters with tons of DLC. 2K, Activision, Bethesda, they all do the DLC thing. They figured they can't up the base price so they will chop parts off and sell them separately to increase the baseline.

The frustrating thing is that other companies like Valve have shown you can provide value while still being very profitable. EA just isn't built that way though and lacks long term vision, they're too focused on the quarter to quarter financials.

$100 for Battlefield 4 + content. Oh great deal. If they want me to feel like the game is "a steal", you should give us that extra content included in the regular retail price.

The common defense for this is that the previous games were a similar price but that's kind of a meaningless metric for me, the previous games also had different feature sets. I think EA too often designs games with a business model in mind first, creative efforts second and you really see it in games like SimCity.

I like the price on the 290s but man those thermals and noise levels are a bit nuts.

Nope, you're stuck with it. Steam will sometimes do a one time refund but it's kinda dodgy getting them to do it and I wouldn't waste my one time shot on buyers remorse.

I don't know about the rest of you, but this was easily my worst week picking games. I think I got a whole 5 games correct.

Yeah I went 6-7 and was lucky to get those 6, 3 of my wins were last minute games like the Seahawks. Very bad week
