Great game. I played it again last year and still had a ton of fun. I feel bad for the SMS. It had some fun games, but I have never met another person IRL who had one. Heck, I think I've only met one other person who knew it existed.

I'm glad this game is finally getting the attention it deserved.

Original one is, I believe, free on GOG right now.

"Think NFL Blitz with mutants, chainsaws, and deaths."

But definitely don't think of Mutant League Football. That may border on infringement.

If anything, the lack of teammates sitting on the couch with you is a pretty big disadvantage in communication.

So play with them on the couch. I play this at home with anywhere from 2-4 people on the TV. The PC version supports local split-screen play online. It's one of the reasons I love this game.

That's necessary, not generous.

He's releasing the game for free, fixing it, and allowing refunds from anyone who bought it. What is your skewed definition of generous?

Sure, but perhaps others would have blamed him (and other developers) without understanding why. I can respect his decision to vent, especially given his interpretation of the data.

Enjoyed the first one. Was planning on picking this up. I don't blame him for moving on but it would have been better if he just said nothing. Less sturm und drang that way.

Sounds more like an inside job from one of the SJWs.

I'm with you on questioning the credibility of the threats, but there is nothing here that supports any notion that it was an 'inside job.' The FBI isn't going to spend time tracking down anonymous internet threats to a gaming convention panel, and it's far easier and cheaper for SXSW to just cancel the panel than have to deal with this.

How do companies with large, varied sets of characters still manage to not exploit our nostalgic love for childhood IPs? I had never heard of this game before and now I'm tempted to buy it at retail price simply because I can buy He-Man and GI Joe characters to play it with. What fools manage these companies?

Left 4 Dead 1 and 2, and Portal 2 all offer split screen. Other games offer same screen coop. Magicka, for instance.

They should create a tabletop augmented reality version of the game. It seems like such an obvious extension of the technology. They wouldn't need to put much thought into it.

Games like Audio Surf, geometry wars, Beat Hazard, etc... are the indie type games that will get decimated by this policy. They are the type of impulse buy games that people will eventually think, "great game but I'll return it and wait for it to be $2.50" after an hour of playing.

What is wrong with this? If after an hour of playing you feel like it's not currently worth the asking price, you should feel entitled to a refund. Playing for an hour is not the same thing as owning the title.

Are the toys actually going to be usable as toys? Cause that would be nice for once.

I don't get the hate for businesses trying new things to acquire money. Making money is the point of a business after all. And it's not like they switched their entire business model to this. I see this as an attempt to try something new(however silly it is). It will probably fail, but good on them for giving it a shot.

Cabin in the Woods could have been great, but the ending, and a few scenes near the ending, killed it for me.

I was bored until the end. The end is what saved the movie for me.

"Pseudo-retro" seems like it should be a classification for some art styles. I see a lot of games nowadays that has what looks like a pixellated look but really seems to... not really be. Like drawing what looks like a 24x24 pixel image, but with 2x2 or 4x4 pixel blocks, complete with weird special effects that are non-pixel.

I usually am not a fan of that look.

I could agree with that term. *hammer down* "Pseudo-retro" is now an official category of art-style. The Gods of Classification have spoken!
