It seems to me they're going to focus too much on combat.

Yeah, I'm not holding out much hope for this year's E3. Hopefully a trailer from the new Deus Ex, maybe some word about a new Dishonored and if we're really really lucky a word about GTA V on the PC. However, I think the last ship might have sailed.

Between the DLC and the ever on going Uplay cluster fuck I'll wait for the sale on the complete edition.

Anyone know anything about city building sim called Civitas on kickstarter sometime ago that looked a lot like SimCity 4? It seemed to some potential but the kickstart drive was canceled because the developer got private funding and I never heard anything else about it. It's probably dead in the water.

Yeah I don't think he ever got private funding. That screamed SCAM from day one.

After rewatching the "beta video." You might be right. I found his Still, I got money in my pocket for a real SimCity clone or a true to the original reboot.

I'd take the Google diversity data with a grain of salt. If I were to guess, and I'm about to, I'd say that they probably higher almost a lot of people from Ivy League or near Ivy League schools. Both of which have a tendency to contain a lot of rich white kids. That being said I know a few white guys, a white woman and a couple asian guys who or have worked work in I.T. So yeah I.T. is kind of diverse but kinda not.

I remember my mom plopping me in front of Reading Rainbow as a kid. So I'm glad to see it got funded on KickStarter!

It's sad that the last true SimCity game came out more than 11 years ago.

Indeed, shows how EA can ruin any great franchise! I don't think any city building game released after SimCity 4 has come close to being as great it. I tried to Play Cities XL2012 but the memory leak prevented it from running. I've heard the rest of the franchise sucks as well.

I wonder if it requires an internet connection to calculate individual sim bowel movements.
Yep, it's also part of the upcoming Bladder Needs DLC and won't ship with the base game.

I really hate these sales! If something is good it's gone before I can buy it. If it's ok and worth getting it goes as I debate buying. If it sucks it's up forever!

I once ordered a cable that was labeled as retail. It was really inexpensive so I had my doubts, and when it arrived it was OEM. I mentioned this in a review.

Shortly thereafter I got a phone call (wtf) from the seller pleading with me to change my review, proclaiming I was endangering his livelihood.

Ehm, so basically you complained for getting something of equal quality cheaper? Because that's what you did. There is no physical difference between OEM and RETAIL, but for the seller you mentioning this in amazon reviews brings up a huge legal issues and potentially blacklisting from Amazon store.

Also, it's pretty weird customer behavior to complain about that.. considering the seller saved you actual money.

I would have mentioned this too. The seller is obligated to ship an item exactly as described. If it says retail it comes In a retail package. Is it really a huge deal for a cable? no. But it might be for something else since OEM usually comes with out accessories.

I'll breakdown and get BioShock when I can get the whole game in one purchase.

And speaking of Shock and bundles... this weeks Humble Bundle looks really tasty, especially for old school RPG fans.

No shit the consumer is the loser here. Apple has a vested interest in keeping Samsung and Google phones off the market. After all there is a lot of money in being a monopoly or near monopoly. They learned that firsthand in the 90's.

Agreed, but Samsung ain't all rosy either mind you, http://tinyurl.com/kpy83kl

Alas, we're stuck with em both, and I must confess, I really dig those Samsung phones for a number of reasons.

-Micro SD card expansion VS. paying for overpriced system memory on Apple.

-Android being emulator and "hands-on friendly" VS. Apple closed OS ( Much like the old Windows VS MacOS arguments ).

-Easy to find and bigass long lasting quality easily swappable batteries. ( see zerolemon.com ).

And the list goes on and on.

OFC some people are better suited for Apple's offering, but I ain't one of them. Even if Samsung's phones hadn't any of the so called infringing features, I would still have chosen an Android phone for the aforementioned reasons and Apple's buyers would still have chosen Apple phones. This court case is a non-issue.

Of course there is more then enough blame to go around.

I agree with you about Samsung phones being better phones for those reasons. however Google seems to be moving more and more towards just using internal storage on the phone. I wouldn't be surprised if eventually they simply drop the external SD card.

I always laugh at iPhone users who scramble around trying to find an outlet when I drop in a fresh battery.

Prison Architect is criminally fun. Anyone who loved the old tycoon games should get this one. Despite the theme the game really is fun to play. Perhaps the best tycoon game since Rollercoaster Tycoon 2.

I don't buy games that have been in alpha for years. Do you work for them or something?

Actually it feels more like a beta then an alpha. And honestly it seems less buggy then many AAA titles are on release.

+1. PA is the best strategy game I've played in awhile. It's got a steep learning curve but well worth it. Hopefully a more thorough tutorial is added before release.

"iOS7 style changes coming to Mac OS X"

Cool, now all the hipster Windows 8 haters have something new to complain about. The general hipster uses Mac OS X for their desktop (because they've abandoned Windows), and Android phones because the iPhone is too "mainstream". So now what will they do? Switch to Chromebooks? Yup! lol

You know a true hipster will say "I stopped sing windows and OS x years ago. I make my own locally sourced and organic OS at home."

It's always a huge turn off for me when they start talking about future DLC before the game is even released! Makes me wonder how much they cut out and are now charging for.
