Not sure what reality you guys are living in, but "video games" in the 80s was magical and evolutionary. We're talking TI99 and C64 time, when most people didn't even know what one of those were, let alone any "saturation", and BBs's and 75 baud modems were all the rage...

Talk about rewriting history... none of you must have been around then, hell 90% of those here on blues were likely not even born.


Exactly. After the 83 crash, what saved the industry was the magic happening on the C64, on the BBC Micro, on the ZX Spectrum, on the TI-99, on the Amstrad CPC. It was the microcomputers, as they were called, that saved the industry from certain doom by attracting a ton of talented bedroom developers. I still have my C64, still fully working. Those were magical and amazing times, where games could be free to be whatever they damned pleased.

I recommend watching Bedroom to Billions, a documentary on the English gaming developing scene of the 80s and early 90s, a hell of a nostalgia trip and a pretty badass documentary to boot.

So, early feedback on Win10? Does it follow the Windows pattern of one good Windows release followed by a bad one or does it break it?

Those prototype Amigas are truly amazing finds, like the sony-nintendo prototype found a few months ago. Hope they get taken care of, in a museum or otherwise, those are pieces of computing history that shouldn't be lost to time.

Happy 30, Amiga. Way ahead of its time. If only Commodore didn't fuck up one wonders how the Amiga would have changed the computer tech landscape.

This reminds me of the reaction to Black Ops 3 at E3. Holy shit, you could hear the crickets. This series isn't going to last much longer, sales are plummeting every year after MW3.

This image is relevant. DICE has a way to fuck up every game they touch lately.

With the Hulk Hogan trial case drawing closer, Gawker, and its affiliate Kotaku, may be soon bankrupted out of existence and not a single tear will be shed for these assholes.

News Comments > GMG Arkham Knight Refunds

There's still people defending this monstrosity of a port? Wow. Better have these publishers abandon the PC market once and for all rather than having shitty port after shitty port thrown at us.

And considering that PC gaming is now at this point selling more than the Xbone, it's highly doubtful they'll even consider abandoning the very lucrative PC market.

Also, it seems Nvidia has lied to us, releasing a sped up trailer of the game to fool us into thinking the game was 60fps fluid.

We may have a Planetary Annihilation situation here. PC2 is going to bomb through crowdfunding, people are not going to take this well at all.

Steam drama alert:

Another hipster indie dev that made a terrible game is sad that steam refunds is doing its job. He left the game page like this right now:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/358480/

Priceless. Just priceless.

Notice how almost all of these indie devs that cry foul are the ones producing some of the shittiest games in steam?

The page seems to have been taken down. Did you get a screenshot?

If you can't see the pic, it's the picture of a turd.

Isn't ARK made by the same devs of The Stomping Land?

Nope. There is no affiliation between the two.

Ah ok, keep reading about Stomping Land in their forums and it made me wonder if the devs were related.
