I like the games, but someone get back to me when they post an actual gameplay video.

Penny Arcade Expo launches global expansion.
Eh, I don't know. PAX as a show is at its limits - Gabe and Tycho certainly aren't looking to travel to yet more conventions. But this seems like a dilution of the brand. Like a Porsche-branded cell phone.

Looks like the franchise is $40 US, so guess they are saying $4. Wonder if it will be pulled on GOG too. There doesn't seem to be any info there atm.
Yes. Remedy and their publisher will no longer have the rights to sell new copies of the game at all in the US come the 15th. It will have to be removed from GoG just like anywhere else.

No, really, this is impressive. I will definitely go back to X-Wing with this mod. Great work, guys! And now... TIE Fighter, please, after you have finished this mod. PLEASE!
It makes sense that they would start with X-Wing. But it was also the weakest game of the series in every way (especially the difficulty curve). So I agree, nail X-Wing and then bring on the Tie Fighter.

I'm actually a bit surprised the recommended specs are only a GTX 970. That's the equivalent of a $200 video card these days. It's surprisingly affordable.

Also, don't forget this thing came out in March... NOBODY releases a new console outside of the holiday season anymore. GameCube, Xbox, PS3, Wii, 360, PS4, Wii-U, Xbone, PS4 Pro, and probably Scorpio will all have released in November because that's when everyone starts spending the most money.

It's pretty bonkers for Nintendo to put up competitive launch sales at a time of year when they don't have that inherent advantage. That means people are specifically looking to buy the Switch, not just whatever game console they find on the shelf when they're out Christmas shopping. Who knows how much bigger that number would be if they were actually keeping up with demand...

For comparison, PS4 and Xbone sold 4.2 million and 3 million respectively between their launch in mid-November and the end of December 2013.
Also keep in mind that console launches are almost universally sell-out events. So the number of systems sold is the number of systems produced. The fact that Nintendo moved so many in March is indeed impressive, but it's hard to compare to other launches.

Zelda having a better than 100% attach rate in the US was good for a joke. But I'm now genuinely surprised it's global...

Newtonian or non-newtonian? Everyone seems to gravitate towards the former, but I find it not to as much fun since it puts such a heavy emphasis on planning every maneuver ahead of time.

Huh, this came out of nowhere. Introversion stuff is usually fun, so I'll definitely have to check it out once it's released.

Yet when they complain to G2A to remove such codes and G2A asks for the codes in question they refuse, sometimes rudely and publicly.
G2A needs to go to the publisher with the codes, not the other way around.

Hmm, any idea why Valve would be instituting this change now? Given all the work that goes into increasing your ranking, I'm not immediately seeing why someone would want multiple accounts, or why it would be a problem for Valve.

2 was great, like a more arcadey GTA 4.. but man it ran like complete and utter ass on PC. I think it's one of the worst ports I've played on PC...
It was also rather buggy, IIRC.

They're pushing this extra hard, which doesn't give me any good feelings on this game. I already had annoyances that they took an IP I enjoyed playing [The actual Prey game. Man those pewter figurines are cool. Need to paint them one day...] and teased us with the Prey 2 trailer, and then dropped that ball for yet another 'System Shock-inspired' clone. Yes. I like those kind of games.. but stop pulling a bait-n-switch, Bethesda. Should have named this one 'Mimic' or something.
At this point I've given up begrudging Bethesda on this. It's going to happen regardless.

But it is a bit of a clever move on their part. Sequels tend to sell better, presumably because everyone thinks that if it's getting a sequel, the original must have been good, and of course the sequel will be better. So they're just outright calling the first game in the new series a sequel...

Anyhow, I like the art and setup; they obviously put a lot of resources into this. But it's not holding my attention - at this point I'm indifferent - and honestly I can't figure out why. Name shenanigans aside, this game just doesn't seem all that interesting?

39,000 words. It's just under the size requirement for a full-blown novel, making it a Novella.

I don't know how I feel about the Minecraft Coins concept, but otherwise this seems like a reasonable idea. Since it doesn't impact free add-ons, and it will (ideally) make it possible for professionals to devote time to creating content, it seems like a good idea to me.

As for the Coins, I'm reminded of X360 Moon Points, which everyone hated. However I do get that, given the small scale of these items, that vendors don't want to set the price per-region. I feel like having fixed pricing tiers (at least below $10 or so) would be a better way to go. Coins and other virtual currency are too ambiguous; it's too easy to forget the real-world value of that currency and spend like a drunken sailor.

When I saw "top-down, bullet hell shooter", I at least thought it would be 3D rendered ala Alien Swarm. I have to say the low-res pixel art look isn't doing it for me, especially in a top-down game like this.
