Mainly video games for people who can't afford the system. So now we have three tiers of gamers. The PC Master Race, the console peasants, and the gamer dregs consisting of Xbox One X renters, casual Phone apps, and Microsoft Solitaire. Ironically that last segment is probably more profitable than the prior two.

Well, I'm interested, because MoW:AS2 is an amazing game, but this smells a bit cash grabby, since MoW:AS2 is what, 4-5 years old now, and the company theoretically moved on to a new franchise, Call to Arms?
I'll have to check it out though most likely; Assault Squad 2 is awesome.

Depends on how detailed the simulator is, it's crazy the amount of detail DCS A10 has in just the startup procedure.
It's not like there's never been a case where people in the tower have been able to walk people through the procedure of landing a plane with little experience.
At any rate I feel 100% qualified to fly X-Wings, Tie Fighters and a assortment of other spaceships.

At least the article finally mentions ina short per that people who have jobs that are relevant are finding a booming economy, but they immediately turn away from that. Instead they focus on people who very much seem to think someone else needs to take care of them. It isn’t someone else’s job to make sure your skills are something that’s still relevant.
Actually it is. A plethora of broke, hungry, angry people are what cause bloody revolutions. There's more than enough to go around and at least keep the masses pacified with an UBI.

Nice to see FFXV on the list, maybe it's on sale?
I really liked that game, the first RPG I got the wife to ever play through with a controller on the console, and it was her first JRPG too.
She just started Nier: Automata, which got great reviews, I'm next in line to play And I'll say this, from someone who didn't grow up with games, and who's new to using a controller you'd think she'd have a hard time with the Platinum Games style of action, but I wanted to push her a bit, and she's really taken to it, we're on day 2 and she's about 7 hours in and not giving up the controller.
Apparently, it takes 20 hours to beat, but then there are 4 more endings you should play through, and the fifth one "route E" is supposed to me genuinely amazing in a mindfuckery kind of way. One major review outlet said something like: "The night I beat Nier: Automata, I slept well. The night I REALLY finished Nier: Automata I couldn't get a wink"
For the reference, time to beat average says 20 hours for first playthrough, 6-7 for each other one, but can go faster by skipping everything but main quests. 60 hours for a completionist run.

The reality is many of the dubbed anime from the past have been superpassed. Mobile Suit gundam 00 is probably one of the best mech animes ever made. The old Macross is stale, they really have had a hard time not fucking up macross, I wasn't a fan of frontier or macross delta.
I'd rate gundam seed / Gundam 00 greater than macross at this point in anime history.
There is so much anime now that old classics aren't talked about much anymore like Evangelion or Ghost in the shell.
It's too bad GITS got worse, the first version being the best gits. They took Ghost in the shell in odd directions after the first movie. Especially with stand alone complex.

It sounds to me like you guys are just trying to scam people out of two million dollars.
That's probably it. Can't imagine the property is worth anything remotely close to that. Or ever would be even if they won it all and got a game made. And even if they raised the money and won how the hell could they afford to make a game anyway? Yeah, sounds pretty scammy all around.

I don't recall this Robotech cartoon but I did watch a lot of Battle of the Planets.
Robotech was pretty awesome. Not many cartoons willing to kill off the entire cast in an episode or two and then just continue on with their descendants and a new story/cast in the following episode.

No, PUBG is not an asset flip. It is a complete, skillfully designed game that happens to use Unreal assets. That said, fuck them right up their Blue Hole for being so arrogant as to sue people who made a vastly more unique-looking and visibly recognizable game than their generic-looking eye sore. Nothing in PUBG can remotely be called original in the least. It looks like any number of amatuer Arma mods.
