Clash of Clans Dev Acquired by League of Legends Owner for $8.6 Billion…

Jesus H. Christ on a stick. I don't know which one is more mindboggling: that Clash of Clans is worth 8 billion, or that LoL just happened to have $8B laying around. And I thought the Minecraft deal was ridiculous...

I'm not that surprised Clash of Clans is considered to be worth that much, they picked a great Pay to Win treadmill format (for them) and they attacked customers with zero prior MMO defense for that sort of thing. I know plenty of people whose kids or they themselves have spent hundreds to thousands of dollars on that skinner box game. None of those people had ever heard of a MMO or ever really dealt with micro-transactions on that scale, and got sucked in pretty easily.

To be fair, 3.5mm jack is pretty terrible, wears out easily (on both device and headphones) and eventually I don't think losing it would be a bad thing.

3.5mm jack isn't great, but it's DRM free and very cheap, compared to whatever proprietary jack/connection Apple wants to force people to pay for in the future.

That said, I don't buy Apple products anyway, I just hope their madness doesn't spread to other manufacturers.

I loved this game at first, but it kinda turns into a slog, in my opinion. I suppose it's good that the AI plays well, but I simply don't find it enjoyable anymore. Even with perfect bomb placements and good turning, my ships still take a shitload of damage, and I've yet to find a mission where I can actually bring ALL of my ships; usually you are only allowed like 300 Point fleets or some other extremely small number.

Debating whether to plow through and finish the campaign or just uninstall, soo much other stuff in the queue.

PlayDead (the developer for LIMBO) has a new game launching in July. This is just a PR move to attract customers to their games.

Good for them, then. I bought Limbo on sale or in a bundle or something a few years back, thought it was pretty interesting. Finished it in a few hours, as it is pretty short, but I don't think they asked much for the game even at full price.

*EDIT* Typo.

The registration free demo is interesting.
Would buy it, but $9 a month is too much for me to spend on a game like this.
Will wait to see how the single player turns out before purchase.

Whoa... what the devil!? Literally a MMO with a monthly fee? I cannot possibly scoff any harder than I am right now. *scoffs* Count me out then until single player.

Yeah, based on the stellar reviews everybody gives Witcher 3, I'm really looking forward to it. I'm struggling to finish up some other stuff first, then I'll finally get around to W3.

Hopefully it doesn't sour all other rpgs for me or anything, namely Fallout 4, which I plan on getting eventually.

*EDIT* Also, I can understand people not liking Pillars, they made some questionable choices for sure. I wonder how the people who didn't like Pillars much end up liking Obsidian's new game, Tyrant, and how far from PoEt they stray in the design. Of course that's years out at this point probably.

Hrm, that Polygon article made me actually take a closer look at Resident Evil 7(which I had utterly ignored as the past couple put me to sleep) and it looks like it may end up being pretty good.

Dammit, yet another game to add to the queue.

Yet another example of how people REALLY shouldn't put a lot of money into any crowdfunding project, or really ANY money at all. It's not a preorder, it's a donation to strangers.

Disclaimer: I have put 15-25 dollars into Pillars of Eternity, Grim Dawn, and a couple other Kickstarters.

Sometimes that bum really will just use your money to buy some alcohol.

Man, last I had heard Westworld was on hold or something. Looks like one of the more ambitious projects for television, even by HBO standards.

I hate to say it, but that trailer has me amped up for HBO's remake of Westworld. Ed Harris is an excellent choice, assuming he's taking over Yul Brynner's character. Normally I'd be up in arms for somebody to try to redo such a classic, but based on HBO's pretty high quality work, they may be able to do it justice.

Except this film is really only successful in China, where it had a lot going for it.

In other territories, particularly the US, it's an absolute bomb.

That kind of is the definition of film success now; there are almost 2 billion potential movie goers in China... most blockbusters target Chinese audiences at least partially. I can't wait for Hollywood to realize how big the Indian market is(another 1+ billion) and start adding Bollywood style dance numbers to every movie.

Yeah I thought the movie was OK. Wasn't amazing. Wasn't horrible.

If you're a fan of crap 80s fantasy movies like Krull etc, there is something in Warcraft to appreciate.

Whoa whoa whoa, let's not bring the American Classic Krull into this.

Krull, Ice Pirates, Time Bandits, the 80s had a ton of awesomely bad movies.

PoEt 60% off, now's your chance to gift out a few copies, Cutter and other major PoEt fans.

Disclaimer: I borderline loved PoEt; hopefully PoEt 2 will be the greatest rpg of this era.

Wow, they are REALLY exploiting the Warhammer licenses now, aren't they? There are probably a dozen Warhammer or 40k or whatever games either recently released or already revealed at this point.

Of course I am part of the problem, I've bought my fare share.

This looks like a pretty terrible ARPG though, based on this alpha footage. Slow and plodding. Hopefully they work on the speed a bit as time goes on.

*EDIT* wtf, beaten by ONE minute by Tipsy.

"And, unlike other MMO, you do not have to play Screeps constantly to play well. It is quite enough just to check once in a while to see if everything goes well. "

Haha! A more game-oriented version of Progression Quest!

That said, this is pretty interesting, I'm tempted to get it, if only to see how rusty I am.

Seems like a more abstract version of Dwarf Fortress, in a good way.

Last night's GoT episode was pretty damn good, with such a gratifying ending.

Sad Only one more episode left in this season.


I think it was one of the best episodes of the entire series...I was ready to rewatch it the moment it was over.

Fantastic episode...


Really? Apparently I was the only one pissed off at a certain someone running in a damn straight line for like 200 yards while somebody was shooting at him with a bow. Zig zag a little!

Also, if they had just waited like 15 minutes, a certain group would have showed up and there would be thousands more people alive.

Aside from that, I've enjoyed this season a lot, especially since it's past the books and it's all new to me.

I want to have a serious discussion:

Why are people obsessed with Halflife 3?

as I remember it, Half life 1 was a great game, i remember lots about it having been like 17 years later.

Half life 2 was extremely forgettable, i can't remember really anything except for the horrible hovercraft levels being annoying.

I can't actually think of anything that half life 2 did that half life 1 didn't destroy it in... Like what made half life 1 better, in my opinion, was the mods that were basically ported straight out of quake into it. Like Team Fortress Classic, Natural Selection..

So why do people want half life 3 so badly?

Random astro-turf straw man post against Halflife 3. -> Halflife 3 confirmed.

Just kidding of course; I'd be interested in HL3 if it actually came out, but it's definitely WAY past the time it'd be able to have any sort of real impact on PC gaming.

Here's another video of BF1 gameplay, Sniper/Bayonet gameplay in particular, by Jackfrags on youtube.

The bayonet charge looks and sounds hilarious, but most likely overpowered right now. Even after some nerfs it'll be a riot to see like 10 people screaming and charging with bayonets though.

I love how the graphics look, the sound seems amazing even in this somewhat crappy Levelcap video, but I think a lot of these weapons and ancient tanks etc. will be extremely aggravating to people coming from BF4 or Hardline.

Still interested, but it seems like any halfway competent tank player will utterly dominate. Self Repair from inside?! Haha! (around the 28 min mark? he repairs his own tank from inside, not exposed to infantry fire). 2 Shotting armored cars, 1 shotting players, some sort of gas grenade... that light tank is a beast. No counters from biplanes either, with their highly inaccurate bombing. It'll be interesting to see how the game turns out, balance wise.

Sweet. Pre-ordered this last week, I'll try it out tonight. The first one was actually really good, and I swear I read somewhere this game and the original were made by basically 1 person(not counting voice work etc.)? Congrats if that's really the case.
