Even if you don't like LoL or e-sports, how would it negatively affect you in any manner whatsoever?
Where do I say it negatively affects me in any manner? I just say that it's retarded that people who sit on their asses and play videogames are considered to be 'athletes.'And to focus on the word "athlete" is a bit silly, as chess is considered a sport, and the players are "athletes" as well. Same goes for billiards and several other activities I'm sure people would find questionable.
Chess is considered a GAME, not a sport, and its players are most assuredly not considered athletes. Neither are billiards players. Neither, for that matter, are golfers.

Maybe the next Atlus will actually give a damn about bringing Japanese games to the US and EU regions.. FOR PC. ^^

Wow! You guys know Atlus? When I read the headline, I was like "WHO?" Seems they release JRPGs, and that's why I don't know them. So, I hope for the fans of JRPGs that they can be "rehabilitated".

Ravenholm was one of my favorite parts about Half Life 2. That being said, I'm not sure how much mileage you could get out of an entire game based around it.

There's no reason to buy this. You can play multiplayer Blood Bowl for free on FUMBBL. Whereas, with Cyanide's Blood Bowl, you get a buggy game with a really weak online community and a 3D gameboard that makes it incredibly difficult to see what's going on. Why spend money for a worse product?

So it's just CTF then?
Seriously why do people waste their time and money making stuff like this? 'Hey! You what'll sell a bazillion copies?! A shitty looking multiplayer only game that only has one mode...CTF! Huh? Huh? Awesome, right!?'

Even if the stats represent only a portion of the market, the fact that SimCity does that well in any segment is truly disappointing.
Exactly my point. The UK is a statistically significantly large market that we can extrapolate that its doing pretty well in other markets around the world.

It's still too early to say "told ya so" with regards to how well the Wii U will fare, but we're getting closer...
Xbone has been nintendo's MVP thus far...
The Wii U was outsold by the Wii last month, yeah I would say it's 'still too far'. Predictions without figures are meaningless anyway. What year, how many sales, what profit level, etc. Anyone can say 'well this might happen..someday'.
Well most everyone was saying the Wii U is doomed (another thing 'anyone' can say) while I know better.
Come Christmas, you will know better too

Pretty sure that I know who will be purchasing the Total Annihilation IP...or at least bidding on it.

Good game in it's prime, but it's done now. They should be working on a sequel instead.

I know they'd never post it but I'd really REALLY like to know what the Diablo 3 retention rate was after the launch week / 1st month / quarter. Has it started going up again yet?

What goes around, comes around, Nintendo.
Your Wii line-up sucked, your DS line-up only had a handful of games which weren't made for Japanophiles or little kids, your best 3DS game is still the last-gen title made for the original DS (GTA: Chinatown), and your Wii-U line-up is a big fat NOTHING.
Stop using Mario as your liferaft, stop the flood of shovelware on your consoles, and come up with some original IPs and protagonists. And do this 8 years ago.

It is because there is a perpetual influx of young people who want to make games because they think it will be a fun job. The megapublishers can hire them and pay them peanuts.
The industry in general has an immense disrespect for the people who make the games and a disrespect for talent. It is a major reason why you have so many mediocre games. People with experience all quit because you can't have a family (or life) while working in the industry.
Yeah, and that's just really, really fucked up. There should be a class in college when you're going for your game design or game programming degree, that's basically called "This Industry Fucking Sucks."
Seeing EA and its ilk continuously just shit all over young, naive people just because they can is pretty aggravating.

I've never really ever had that urge to "make games", like so many other gamers do (or claim they do.) If anything, I always figured that if I ever got the say over what kind of game to make, every programmer would quit in disgust over my absurd requirements and list of features that I had to have.
Even so, I could have had the largest hankering in the world to make games, and I'd never go work in the fucking gaming industry. I think the fry cooks at McDonalds get treated with more respect than the unfortunate souls who work in this industry. (a few companies like Valve and Egosoft excepted.)
Why they continue to let themselves be treated this way is baffling...

I don't see why Trion deserves 'riddance'. They've done a decent job pushing the industry forward and Rift is a solid MMO, albeit too late to the game.
I realize your personality revels in schadenfreude, but I don't think Trion is an appropriate target.

What makes a studio a "DICE" studio? DICE is in Sweden. This seems like it's just a branded EA studio, to ride on the coattails of DICE's good name.
