Threadripper is almost as good a name as Taserface.

Besides the ship date, what problems did you have with the Double Fine Adventure kickstarter? To me, it looked like they greatly increased the scope of the game due to the wild success of the kickstarter.

DF-9 was an Early Access title that didn't pan out. That's a bummer for everyone, but it doesn't speak to their ability to ship titles. When the sales aren't there, it's hard to justify making the product.

Double Fine makes a lot of different bets in games. Some work out and some don't. To me, their brand is about innovation, and has never been about hitting AAA sales targets.

Man, Valve/Steam needs to seriously review these games before green lighting them.
You think Valve should do a full play-through of every title before launching it? That seems excessive to me. They're acting as a distributor and retailer, not a publisher.

The link and quote in the article are for a flavor/story piece. The new mechanic is described in the Gamescom announcement.

The Zelda thing is inaccurate. The linked article's source has retracted the claim.

while Safari automatically executes steam:// URLs without user confirmation, the researchers said.
APPLE MAKES TEH SAFEST STUFF IN TEH WORLD!!1!!!1!1
This is actually a very interesting hack from a blame perspective. On the surface, Safari is making the decision that, "users don't want to review URLs before executing them. the program that executes them should be responsible for its security." And Steam is making the decision that, "users don't want to review URLs before executing them. the game that executes them should be responsible for its security." And the game is making the decision that, "I'm just a game that supports steam. Isn't security their job?" There's no easy person to point fingers at here -- none of those statements are really wrong.

Ultimately, a solution needs to come from Valve, but it's going to be hard to find a way to reduce exploitability without negatively impacting the user experience.

News Comments > BioShock Infinite Gets GoW Producer
4. Re: BioShock Infinite Gets GoW Producer Aug 9, 2012, 16:49 bozu
 
A used copy of BioShock goes for more than a used copy of BioShock 2. BioShock 2 had multiplayer, but BioShock was a better game (metacritic 96, vs metacritic 88).

So, I think they're just wrong about that. Honestly, I think they should be doing those evil "free DLC with [original] purchase" deals -- seems much more effective, and I'd rather most games focus their effort on making a kick-ass single player experience.

That said, the "tacked-on" co-op mode for System Shock 2 was totally worth the wait.

Wow, that's a bit of a douchey post to make. Even if things dissolved with the company, they must really be angry to publicly attack UV's reputation like that.

initial UV response: http://forum.universo-virtual.com/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=4291

so, it sounds like yes, he may be planning to take legal action.

I had an interview for this project a couple of years ago. I think the first thing I said when I walked in was, "Why not a Fallout MMO?"

Didn't get job.

I am a friend of someone who recently got sacked from RockStar North for general misconduct. Because one contract to RockStar covered everything, including secrecy, and his contractual obligaton was now removed, he was legally allowed to spill the beans on Rockstar's upcoming GTA V.

Really? I can't imagine any industry giving someone a contract that said "You can't steal any of our ideas until such a time as you no longer work for us."

There's no legal requirement to have your software rated by ESRB, yet this regulation targets only the software that voluntarily uses the ESRB system. How weird.

I thought the whole point of self-regulation in the industry was to avoid having government regulations.

I doubt this will go anywhere.

News Comments > Obsidian Considering a Kickstart

I just want to lol at obsidian riding on more coattails.

and, to the guy that said double fine hasn't had a hit lately, I suggest you go check the metacritic scores for iron brigade, stacking, once upon a monster, and happy action theater. they're 82, 84, 79, and 81. Pretty damn respectable, actually.

Obsidian's *only* original IP was Alpha Protocol, which clocked in at 63.

I would venture that he put in notice months ago so he could go work on a personal project. He promised to stay on through the end of development, but with the delay, he would be there much longer than he'd agreed to do they let him just depart on good terms. Inferring anything more is just a bit nuts.
