Possible 30% hit to every Intel chip in the last decade? Damn. Can you say Class-Action Lawsuit? That's a LOT of machines.

I find it extremely telling they're going on and on about the physical description of the thing and saying nothing about the content, whereas Nintendo does exactly the opposite for their retro...

The specs released for the Switch so far suggest it could rather easily emulate GameCube titles. Nintendo is very good about releasing things over and over again in their e-shop, so this is most...

Civility on the Internet?! What planet is this? ;)

I'm always happy to answer more questions about this sort of thing. I'm of the mind more informed is better.

As a mobile developer who has had multiple top grossing games I can 100% confirm this. iOS makes the lion's share of the revenue, and has almost zero piracy. Android is basically the inverse while...

Iteration my ass

You don't kick a release down the line by six months to do more QA and iteration. You do that because you made serious errors in development and need to fix them. I guess it's nice they get that...

Play it before you judge. They did away with almost all freemium mechanics. There is no premium currency, no timer gates with paywall, and no design tricks to frustrate you so you spend. *IF* you...

They wouldn't even have to. You drive a super car like that on a road in the US and after a few miles you'll hit a pothole and that'll be that.

I guess this is what the FPS became? Looks very similar. Still, last year's XCOM was really good. Hopefully this is as good or better.

So I've played ~90% of the way through the game. People are making too much out of the "cover". There are so far, maybe 2-3 places, comprising about 10-20 minutes of gameplay, where there is cover...
