Spoiler alert! At the center, you find a decoder ring and a message that says, "Be sure to drink your Ovaltine."

This is what you'll find: https://youtu.be/Qhzb9OUWrXU

I believe they are also working on a "WC3 HD" remaster. There were a few articles about it in late 2015.

GameStop does need to diversify if they're going to survive over the next decade. Pawning physical copies of used console games isn't a sustainable business model.

I enjoyed playing Shadow President many years ago. It was always fun threatening, invading, and nuking Canada. Damn Canadians.

I don't know if I would call the idea of a pawn shop innovative. Maybe revolving your entire business around exploiting kids for used game sales is.

Agreed. I have absolutely no desire to ever step inside a Gamestop again and I'm looking forward to their inevitable Chapter 7 bankruptcy. They would probably laugh at us anyway if we actually asked for a Windows key.

I'm glad Josh is making progress, especially given the personal problems he's had. But it seems like he's still endlessly changing and overhauling the underlying engine instead of working on gameplay. We'll see.

Maybe the mod community will be able to make something out of this if it's ever released.

The news is so good that EA's stock dropped 8% in after hours trading.

Does anyone actually believe the ETAs for any given Kickstarter, especially after stretch goals are added? Games get delayed all the time. Usually, these delays occur before release dates are announced but with KS, you don't have that luxury.

No. They all lie about the dates because if they gave realistic timelines, people wouldn't be patient enough to back it.

And unfortunately with inExile, Wasteland 2 delays pushed back Torment even further. And I expect the same with Bard's Tale IV.

Well, a huge portion of the game world is clearly there for multiplayer. I never had a reason to visit the wind farm in single player, but then they have you race jets at insanely low altitude through it in multi.

There was one mission in single player on PC where you had to fly through the wind farm with choppers.

RollerCoaster Tycoon was an economic game which would appeal to plenty of the Elite crowd. They did the same thing with Elite Dangerous, limiting their beta to those who are exploitable have nostalgia and disposable income.

I really doubt that Planet Coaster will have the cult following that Elite did. RollerCoaster Tycoon 1 and 2 are probably my favorite games of all time. I did buy the Elite Dangerous beta. And there's no way in hell I would spend $75 dollars for this.

It seems to me that the current gen of consoles came out of the gate barely able to play current games well. And these things are supposed to have a cycle of 5 - 10 years. /shrug

They went cheap for current gen because they didn't want to sell hardware at a huge loss compared to the PS3 and 360. At the same time, you need obvious graphical improvements to push the consoles. So everything looks decent, not great, but caps at 30 fps. I don't expect this to change for the next generation either.

I agree that his most likely destination is inXile. As soon as his non-compete expires.

My example was Scatterblak, not you. In his post history, he complains another game isn't first person, so it "sucks".

Did you notice the date of that comment?

Lots of the game codes that come with the Geforce card promo are for sale on eBay. Most sell for $20-$25.

Thanks! Bought my game code from eBay for $24 after reading this and already redeemed it on GOG.

If I ran a company with a ridiculously large revenue stream that gave me the creative freedom to do whatever I want, the last thing I would choose to work on would be endless sequels to a stale franchise.

Valve doesn't need HL3 at all. If they are working on it, wonderful. They'll have a lot of ecstatic fans. If not, I look forward to whatever their next project is.

Amazing how fast this went from must-buy to avoid-like-the-plague.

Groupthink.
