    Strange Steam sale?

    I wonder who started this egg hunt. Did somebody randomly decide to analyze the java script on the steam page looking for HL3 clues? Did a Valve employee tell some friends there was a hidden "search" Easter egg? I don't think HL2 was great. I don't think HL2 lived up to the hype. I don't...

    Wii U - NNID Question

    No actual details have been announced AFAIK. These are all the same assumptions we all made when Nintendo said they were going to redo their account system for Wii U.

    Anyone ever heard of the "Cartridge Arcade" on Etsy?

    Community translators and romhack creators don't have legal departments. The entity that needs to go after them is the original copyright holder. This company (and others) get away with making repro carts and boxes because it is low enough profile to fly under the radar of Nintendo and others...

    Anyone ever heard of the "Cartridge Arcade" on Etsy?

    No grey area. Nintendo owns the copyright to these products. They are selling copied (bootleg) Nintendo products and derivative works (translations) based on Nintendo products.

    Limited Edition Sega Dreamcast

    The Retro VGS people bought the Jaguar molds. If that group/guy is involved with this project then this is not a coincidence.

    Square Enix Struggles To Calm Fans As “Final Fantasy VII Remake” Goes Episodic

    QFT. However, don't forget that in FF7 most of your playtime is spent in-battle in a generic arena screen for your current location. The length of the game is mostly irrelevant. Count the number of cities/towns. Count the number of enemies with unique models. Count the outdoor environments...

    The Wii U Thread (that doesn't suck)

    Yeah. I have one and there are some good games for it, but the console is basically end-of-life. I can't recommend anybody buys it now. Just wait until NX is out and pick up everything at a good price.

    Star Wars Battlefront Real Life Mod At 4K 60FPS

    I found it very amusing that the "real life" mod has lens flare.

    The Wii U Thread (that doesn't suck)

    I just started playing Mario Maker last night and while I've had a good time there are a lot of dumb levels with lots of stars. Do I want to "play" your don't move level as part of my 100 Mario challenge? No Do I want to look at your cool Pokemon artwork made out of Mario blocks while I run...

    Why wasn't Jade Empire well received?

    1. It wasn't a known IP 2. it was an Xbox exclusive

    Psychonauts 2 announced, crowdfunding started.

    It was over a year late and had to be released in two halves to raise additional money to fund development.

    Limited Edition Sega Dreamcast

    Without those extra features you're just rereleasing a console that is readily available and cheap on the secondary market. There's no financial incentive in doing this unless it has those extra features. Let's take a look at the features to see if they are worthwhile: HDMI - seems necessary...

    Limited Edition Sega Dreamcast

    I have fond Dreamcast memories (can a mod fix the thread title please) but the idea that it needs an online store internal hard drive and wifi ... Hahahaha If you want the Dreamcast to come back in HD then you don't petition Sega, you go to somebody like Retron or Jakks Pacific and try to get...

    Sony Bricked my system, then banned my PSN, and I lost access to all my digital games

    They already have him the option of paying the money he did the chargeback on to reactivate his account. You don't always have the right to record a call just because the other party is recording. Your rights recording calls varies by state.

    Dead or Alive Xtreme 3 won't ship to the west due to sexism.

    This is probably the case. People who identify as SJW probably weren't happy being told their views/actions were "nonsense"

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    This doesn't mean the game is easy - it means that 75% of people are worse than your six year old. Maybe most of the player base is 5 and they are sick of getting p0wned by people who had been alive 20% longer than them. How are they supposed to compete with somebody who can dedicate that...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    you are playing a game. I have to assume that the tie fighter and snowspeader control the way they do because the developers wanted them to control that way. Perhaps they don't want the game to be dominated by air combat like the previous battlefield games - that's a very good and real reason...

    Star Wars: Battlefront Reboot

    To be fair, Tie Fighter was a flight sim. Battlefront is an FPS/TPS with vehicles.

    Starcraft 2 launched today and nobody cares?

    It's actually somewhere in the neighborhood of 1/10th the GTA 5 sales numbers. Guinness says GTA 5 made $815.7 million in revenue during the first 24 hours. At $60 a pop that's over 13 million copies.

    Why Did Hideo Kojima Leave Konami?

    Konami is profitable. Konami's mobile division is very profitable. http://www.gamasutra.com/view/news/250656/Konami_profits_up_by_159_as_mobile_games_gain_traction.php

    Why Did Hideo Kojima Leave Konami?

    Much better article than the one from the other threadhttp://hardforum.com/showthread.php?p=1041913106#post1041913106 , but still pulls in the movie comparison numbers out of context.

    The Wii U Thread (that doesn't suck)

    I get that the Wii U isn't selling very well, but if you show the public you aren't going to support your console unless it's a smash hit then it makes me (and possibly a few other people) reluctant to invest in later hardware.

    The Wii U Thread (that doesn't suck)

    If this replaces Wii U in 2016 or 2017 I won't have much faith in Nintendo to support it. 4-5 years isn't a long time to support a console these days.

    Metal Gear Solid V’s opening day was twice as good as Avengers: Age of Ultron’s

    Many people are completely missing something on both the movie and game numbers. They are how much people spent, not how much the publisher has taken in. According to this website the publisher sees less than 50% of the retail dollar in profit. http://kotaku.com/5479698/what-your-60-really-buys

    Metal Gear Solid V’s opening day was twice as good as Avengers: Age of Ultron’s

    Konami doesn't just make pachinko games for Japan. Walk into any casino in the U.S. and you will see a ton of Konami slot machines. Konami might be making good money off of TPP, but I don't think it's as much as you'd like to imagine...

    Metal Gear Solid V’s opening day was twice as good as Avengers: Age of Ultron’s

    Depends. The developer only gets a fraction of the total purchase price when you have to account for the store's cut, console licensing cut, distribution costs, and so on. Konami also had to invest over $80,000,000 and multiple years of effort before seeing any payoff. I can't fault them...

    Will an EU PS3 Super slim work in US?

    Are you using the same type of input (Hdmi) on the same port on that TV? Most TV's can be configured to handle each port differently.

    The Wii U Thread (that doesn't suck)

    The laser on the reader is probably slightly miss-aligned. It's only a matter of time until it goes out entirely. If you're in warranty I would try to get it repaired.

    40% of Capcom's digital sales are for PC games

    I didn't say they were effective. I said they were actively trying to prevent their games from being pirated.

    40% of Capcom's digital sales are for PC games

    Capcom's PC games all require Steam or GFWL; they're actively preventing piracy. PC did get fewer sales than consoles (still 60% console).

    Nintendo Amiibo Collectors Thread

    Russian kid plays defence of the ancients for 22 days

    Read the article. He did not play for 22 days straight. He was eating, going to the bathroom, sleeping, etc. He was playing A TON though and not moving around like you should to help prevent blood clots.

    Pew Die Pie first gaming broadcaster to surpass 10 Billion views

    Someone (I assume a kid) at my local park wrote PEW DIE PIE RULEz with chalk on the sidewalk last week. I liked some really dumb stuff when I was a kid. As long as they grow out of it I wouldn't worry too much.
