@Daniel: Dark Souls is an ...

@Daniel: Dark Souls is an example of a Third Class Port. They took the game and did the minimum necessary to get to run on the PC. The best you can say about them is that they exist - and then other people can come along with something like DSFix ...

I think it 's pretty ...

I think it 's pretty natural that when you have ten studios 10 I had to do a search to verify that number working on a single game it 's going to end up a bit of a thematic and mechanical mess, even with Ubisoft Montreal running things. And then ...

I agree with most of ...

I agree with most of your points, but calling them 'useless ' is overstating it. r n r nThey do provide a useful first pass quality metric to a gamer faced with way too many games and not nearly enough time. I can be fairly confident that three games with ...

Definitely not casual - most of these like Clicker Heroes have very complex resource minmax decisions you need to make if you 're going to progress beyond a certain point. Which heroes do I level up, and when - I could level Abaddon up once or Refri up 10 times, ...

And they launched it obviously unfinished - the system software was miserable, buggy, and so slow - not even in alpha state. So instead of your Wii experience of turning on the console and sitting down or standing up to some Wii Sports, your Wii U experience was unpack it, ...

Betteridge 's Law of Headlines ...

Betteridge 's Law of Headlines applies perfectly here. NO. : r n r nYes, it 's good for Oculus/Facebook because they want to own everything and everyone. So if you think Oculus is the industry, then it 's good. Otherwise No.

Most CS:GO buyers during sales seem to be the same people buying new copies to smurf or get around VAC bans anyhow. They wait for sales and stock up. For the last winter sale, for instance, Steam Spy estimates 575K copies of CS:GO were sold https://medium.com/steam-spy/about-steam-winter-sale-76a75abe152a .9oiza6t4h . That 's ...

And they 've realized they can have it both ways - bring out the base game as a full premium product, then have a store for shinies. Some people say that dismissively, but I think it works pretty well for everyone in many cases. Dev gets the initial sale, buyers ...

@Mathias - There is, and I 'm very glad to find out that they 're not the same studio, thank you. r n r nI just assumed yeah, i know that Avalanche was unique enough of a name and with the open world stuff that they were the same.

Well, no, I don 't think this has hurt Nintendo. Any more than the recent thing about Fox 's Family Guy outright stealing a youtube clip then filing a takedown on the original clip has hurt Fox or YouTube. These things pop up every couple months and YouTube pretends they ...
