Yeah, I just want a fun adventure game about a kick-ass photojournalist and her plucky anthropomorphic pig buddy getting in over their heads. Read more

It’s 10 years and about to be two console generations old at this point, I’m not sure what you were expecting here.

Imagine if Microsoft said right now that they only way to add software to Windows was to go through their app store and they wanted 30% of whatever you charged for the software. Their is no way anyone would stand for that. Why do we let Apple do it? Read more

Thanks for the tip, Slinker! I didn’t mention that my budget gaming laptop (bought on sale and included Tomb Raider 2013 - which as far as I know is the most intensive thing it can handle) has been repurposed for said children’s distance learning. I think that’s a full circle. You’re right about Steam, though - it Read more

Not really, I’m half joking. It’s mostly Twitter if I make a comment that goes against the consensus or I throw out a hot take. Most of the comments around these parts tend to be more constructive. Even the last review I did for Tower of God, comments leaned towards the conversational variety. I did have one guy try Read more

Nice cameo by the carpet from the Overlook Hotel in there...

Haha no I’m just joking around. I think the term might be Sleep Doctor or Sleep Lab but I’m not sure... Doctor Sleep is indeed the movie, which I never saw. I’m curious about it though, I do like Ewan Mcgregor, and the Shining is a great movie. Read more

This. My son pointed it out to me the first night the video dropped. He was loading up the game on the Xbox and it auto played. He didn’t understand what was going on but now he does but it’s skewed because of how Fortnite is playing it. On one public hand they are playing the “were a small dev company and big bad Read more

I don’t think it hurts their case. Their terms are there and they want to keep them. There is nothing wrong about that and every platform has it. What it does show is that Epic basically wanted to keep their stuff on iOS but didn’t want to pay Apple, were told no, did it anyway and are now crying about the Read more

This is so on the button. I’m an attorney, Epic breached first and then (more or less) is saying the contract was so unfair they were forced to breach.

That almost NEVER goes well for the party that breaches, and trust me when I say that neither Epic nor Apple want the federal anti-monopoly guys sniffing around their Read more

What I find insane about this whole thing is that Epic does have a somewhat fair point in regards to the appstore monopoly but their chosen action as a multi-billion dollar company of manipulating kids and acting like a scrappy underdog make you want them to lose regardless. Read more

This whole idea of weaponizing your fanbase to win your lawsuits thing doesn’t seem to be a great idea. When you think about all the devs that Epic could be hurting with this tantrum, it’s pretty bad. Read more

I don’t think we’re that far away from going to Mars. That’s not what I was saying. I think we’re that far away from Mars being a viable destination for fast, safe commercial travel. The prospect of me booking a sightseeing trip to Mars in my lifetime is a near-impossibility. I can definitely see highly trained Read more

While I agree with your point, video games themselves have done a lot of the lifting there with the glorifying of war the Call of Dutys and Battlefields of the world do
