smartTV is the "selling feature" of the moment for TV's.

Almost completely bogus since the firmware-based apps will be supported for maybe 2 years max.

it is bit sad though that Toys for Bob made some great games years ago and then this is what they are making now.

I am sure the publishers make tons of $$ with DLC over the longer haul, but the pervasiveness of DLC released at launch of a new game is one of the reasons I dont pre-buy games these days.

though these texture packs are great to tell you the truth I dont *need* them to enjoy the game.

The default textures are fuzzy but they are well-executed at their resolution.

Vita will be remembered as one of those consoles that no one made games for and then it is quietly discontinued.

every preview of that game I have seen tells me "dont buy" until it is $4.99 on Steam.

giving them rights to "space marine" was the first mistake.

Too generic a phrase and Heinlein's famous books about space marines pre-date GW anyway.

not shocked. Not to pick on Steam in particular but I dont trust their security levels after their forum board logins were breached last year.

though I like the idea of realistic lighting in theory, it can get in the way of the gameplay. You miss important items, even will magelight or a torch, especially in the interiors. YMMV of course.

The simple mod at skyrimnexus that makes ore deposits glow is great.

If true, it is yet another reason not to get the new xbox console.

The WiiU did not sell well at all and I suspect MS and Sony and carefully thinking about all of their options.

as a new yorker I can tell you kids of any skin tone can talk like that. Just ride the subways. Truly a non-topic.

my impression of Spector from a few video interviews I have seen in the past is that for some time now he lets others do the major design and nuts and bolts work on his games. In other words, he's the idea man.

The disconcerting part is that it only takes one poorly performing game and a studio is completely axed.

Zeschuk -- "the fire wasnt there"

and that as least partly explains the rushed and non-innovative game that was Mass Effect 3.

More power to him in his new pursuits of course.

I am not so sure SimCity game has the broad consumer appeal to sell well when compared to something like The Sims, which has obvious broad appeal. I guess we'll see.

They had a shopping mall level in the 2nd one. On a spaceship. A shopping mall level.

The devs lacked imagination and it showed in the storyline generally.

At least there wasnt a warehouse level with crates.
