The likelihood that I would pay a monthly is low, but I do wish them success.

oh joy, more background processes to run in the Steam game network client. More Steam updates and more Steam client complexity!

Let's hope the footprint gets larger with every year.

Let's hope for the purpose of music streaming that it will open ports in my firewall.

Sorry, cannot join the Steam lovefest on this one guys. If I want Spotify or Last.fm, it already exists. Separately. Not embedded in a game client.

Fremmium games are a variation of modern slot machines.

Same psychological principle at work under the hood and 100% mindless gameplay.

I played the heck out of GTA III and loved it, warts and all. I may be in the minority here, but I dont have a lot of interest in V. IV was a deeply -- to the core -- mediocre game.

There's drug overdoses in NYC every. single. day.

most popular GPU at 5% is the Intel 4000 GPU -- I assume we are looking at laptops

A bundle deal with games that shaves a real 100 bucks off the total price would have made been 900% more appealing.

An automatic purchase for me.

OTOH all of these KB games are basically the same and 1C really could be trying a bit harder.

These comparisons are always fun but in this instance, the extra dark contrast level on the PS version makes the comparison dubious.

PS = too dark

SONY's emulation announcement does not actually say or promise much if you parse it carefully.

Definitely a "wait and see."

Really like the idea and the drawings, but the spell effects are extra extra retro. OpenGL 2.0 stuff.

SONY junk status is big news -- they should be VERY careful -- that's the sorta thing that brings a company down if it needs to borrow more $$. Then you get the inevitable tailspin into selling off everything it owns.

I really wanted to like the first one but trial and error puzzles arent -- to me -- all that fun.

Hey V -- check out recent amazon consumer reviews -- lots of folks got a 3ds as gifts for the holidays. Many are pleased with the 3ds! But even those people often comment on the chunky resolution of the screens in 2014. Part of the problem is the XL. It simply stretches the resolution of the non-XL. Average consumers start noticing the resolution at that point.

Fergussen is not necessarily a plus -- the shooting in BS: infinite was the least interesting part of that game. You could kill anything by hiding behind things and taking pot shots.

that the 3DS is selling better outside of Japan for the last 2 years does not spell revenue-generating success either. Nintendo is always tight-lipped about these matters and who can blame them?

1. Many 3ds consumers are expressing disappointment with the blocky grainy resolution. Little kids wont care but every other consumer will care.
2. From day one, very few consumers liked the 3D gimmick.
3. At 200 bucks it is still pricey for what it is.
4. Your very typical consumer already has a cellphone AND a tablet.

I suspect nintendo is very worried about the next 2 years. Time will tell!

The launch games on both were hastily made, or ports: not sure anything is "proven" there.

quite a few of their earlier posted shots of the HD version show LOTS of texture stretching on anything that isnt a figure. AKA they are cherry picking screenshots.

Fun game in any case.

YouTube is all about $$: it is an advertisement engine to capture as many eyeballs as possible.

One should not be surprised how corporations use it.
