Yea, quite the game changer, that one. Now in terms of licensing Unity has an undeniable edge. They still require pro purchases at 100K, but that's still gonna be way less than what Unreal would...

These are not generally engine issues, or you'd see them in all games made on the engine. Both engines feature games made poorly, any given game can only show the minimum capabilities of an engine,...

Unity doesn't need to change license, cause Unreal is not free, no matter how many headlines say it is. It's free in the same way a progressive tax system is free, so it's not free at all, it's just...

I went with my company, so it was free and a little more fun, but otherwise I'd say it would barely be worth seeing in theater. Better than the first, but that's not very high praise, and it doesn't...

I would spend a reckless amount of money on a game that could deliver what these motion controlled fighting games promise, sadly, I'm pretty convinced I'm not going to see it.

I'm saying that with the PS3, Sony went from 70%-ish market share to 30%, and MS can't lose that kind of ground and still 'beat' Sony.


While I don't think the price is a death blow or anything,...

While it did outperform the 360, considering it being a followup to PS2 it lost massive ground, and by all accounts had exceptionally higher costs. I'd say 'turned out fine' is not how it's...
