I see no downside here. Microsoft now has ownership of the folks at Obsidian who know how to write Fallout games that don't suck, and the folks at Bethesda who hold the license, I'm good with that. I just hope they launch Todd Howard into the sun at the first available opportunity.

I feel like the Amalur re-release must be part of an elaborate practical joke. The original release was buggy and mediocre, and the only notable thing about it was the controversy surrounding the parent company. I picked it up in 2014 for around ten bucks, finished it in two weekends, and never thought about it again. Now that six years have gone by, someone decided to give it a fresh coat of paint, shoveled it back out there, and now it is a top seller?

Did they patch the bugs out at least?

I see Epic is doubling down on their idiotic behavior. Not to sound all parenting wisdom here, but as long as they live under Apple's roof, they'll follow Apple's rules. Apple even said they'll welcome them back after they clean up the hot mess they've made.

Their ultimate goal is to do two things. To try and hurt Apple's market share in order to get leverage that they convert into more favorable terms for themselves (which will fail). To generate publicity for their own store model and try and bring in more business that way (which may or may not succeed).

I've never known a single person who bought an Apple product to use it as their primary gaming machine. They buy it because because it does certain things really well, and they need to use tools that leverage those things specifically. Not for Fortnite.

You can do all of those things, until your friends inevitably start re-posting all of the garbage that serves to drown out every well intentioned purpose for which you were attempting to use it.

I have so many blocked people, pages, and carefully set up filters -- and in spite of that, my feed still became 100% noise and infighting as people who I thought KNEW BETTER fell for one un-sourced hoax after another in their battle to discover who could be the most outraged.

I eventually gave up and just turned it off for the rest of the year.

I am glad it is doing well. The effort that went into this game clearly shows.

Yes. But that rule goes for pretty much any AAA title.

Looking forward to this one. But still waiting until they get a few stability patches delivered before I pull the trigger.

I didn't even realize Rocket League was still *a thing*.

I vaguely remember playing this in 2014, back when you could grab the 'Complete Pack' on Steam for $12. It may have been unmemorable, but at least that means I didn't hate it.

At the end of it's life cycle, Google was selling the 3 for under $350. So everyone who wanted one, got one of those. When they announced the 4 at twice that price point -- everyone just looked at the feature set (not much changed) plus the pricetag and went -- Nah, we're good.

Then when the first set of reviews came out, they all went -- we'll just wait for the next one, thanks anyway.

A gameplay trailer with actual gameplay wouldn't have gotten nearly as much press. Doing it this way got them trending.

When enabled, the spiders will remain spiders, but the sound file and head model will be replaced by a likeness of 1998 era Tom Hanks.

And despite that, if you ask any popular youtube personality to share their numbers, the revenue share for their monetization has dropped from what would have been a reliable $10K per month for their market base to about $400, if they are lucky. Granted, a lot of them were overvalued, but it seems to me that instead of generating more advertising income, they've simply gotten better at finding ways to keep from paying it through now that they have a broad enough disposable content base to enable them to comfortably ignore complaints.

Niko turned down one too many invitations to go bowling with his buddy GFWL. By the time it got swapped out for Air Hockey, it was too late to save their relationship.

Nice. The sound bug made later replays of the original require a bit of a workaround. It will be nice to have a way to avoid that.

I'd kind of forgotten this existed. I'm glad he's continued working on it. I wonder if I still have my old alpha copy on a hard drive somewhere.

I've never understood why this is an issue. The game launched on a platform I don't want to buy it on. So I don't buy it until it launches on a platform I use. Problem solved.
