CRank: 5Score: 0

Largely because of steam, the only time I've pirated a game in the past few years was one that wasn't available on steam. I did pirate a good few games back in the day, but I dunno, I just find myself generally feeling like I'm better off saving the hassle by spending a couple bucks to get a legit version that I'll own forever with a totally clear conscience.

Idk how common / uncommon that thinking is, it's just what I find works best for me personally. ...

At this point, the only way I could imagine not buying this game is some kind of Spore-esque drm fiasco. I think it'll probably be well received, but I'd pretty much buy it on principle alone even if it gets terrible scores.

Sega did release a PC version back in the late 90s with several tracks replaced. idk if it was ever proved conclusively whether it was for licensing reasons or technical reasons, but I am of the opinion it was the former.

Android is Linux based. There is a lot of confusion, because what most people mean when they say "Linux" is "GNU/Linux based desktop os".

I think a better title for the article would be something like "Nintendo Switch is powered by open source software"

BSD is NOT Linux... sure they are somewhat similar, but by this reasoning it would be just as valid to say that the Switch runs Mac os....

"...Switch’s Free BSD kernel is more akin to Unix than to Linux, but the two share lots of similarities."

...what? that's like saying "Macs are much more akin to computers than [they are] to Windows." BSD and Linux are both subsets of the "Unix/Unix-like" category.

I was already pretty much sold on this game, but after giving the beta a try I gotta say I really can't wait for the full release.

I think I'll definitely be giving this a download. Absolutely love FFIX, easily one of my top games of all time. If I could only present one argument for video games to be considered "high art", this game would be it. Better story and characters than at least 99% of Hollywood movies.

I really can't imagine Troy Baker as Link. I'm sorry, I just can't. Nothing against him or his voice acting, but he's just not the guy for the role (if even there was any need to give Link a voice to begin with).

I work at Target stocking electronics, and it's always frustrating for me because we have "buy one game get one half off" deals for PS4 & XB1 fairly often, but they never seem to apply to our PC games D:

Also, we've been getting massive quantities of Star Wars in for about two weeks now, our back room is stuffed with them lol.

In my crazy head, my dream scenario would be for Disney to somehow leverage Crash, Spyro, and Spider-Man game rights from Acti and then say "Hey Sony, we'll trade you all three in exchange for the Spider-Man film license outright". I mean, could you imagine a PlayStation exclusive Spider-Man game developed by Naughty Dog? :0
Realistically though, I doubt Sony would accept that deal because PlayStation is doing great as it is, while Sony "we ruin everything" Pic...

Yeah, the dreamer in me hopes Activision would consider starting a different Spyro series that would coexist alongside Skylanders (kinda like Sony is doing with Spider-man) but in a distinctly different continuity based more on the spirit of the originals. And as long as I'm dreaming, it'd be great if Insomniac were to develop it. But alas, this is Activision we're talking about. :/

In my mind, I feel approximately 0% doubt that this game will come to PC... eventually. I just hope that myself and other PC gamers won't have to wait 5 years or some horrible timeframe like that. :/

I understand if SE are expecting Xone and (probably mostly) PS4 to be the biggest selling platforms, but if they release it within a reasonable window, this game could *easily* move 1+ million units on PC. It's just good business.

I suspect the decision t...

Very nice! I wonder if they're actually modifying the original code to work with new APIs or if they're using the original binaries with emulation.
I was sort of hoping we'd see some of this:
but from the gameplay shown in the trailer it doesn't look like it :/
Still definitely picking it up!

Well never say never I guess, but I just really don't see it happening though. I suppose it can probably be in the same league as iPhone / Android gaming, but I don't think it will likely be replacing my PlayStation anytime soon.

I wonder if this project is related to the S2HD project on Sonic Retro back in the day. I drew a few mockup designs for that project back in 08-ish, haven't followed it much since. Seeing this now is like a dream come true.

Everything about Vanille is awful. The nonsensical attempts to sexualize her (in a bizarrely non sequitur kind of way) is just another piece of the crap sandwich. As far as I'm concerned, she's the friggin' reincarnation of Jar Jar Binks. Possibly worse.

Oh gosh, I hated that thing SO MUCH!!! And when I finally figured out how to get past it, I felt so dumb lol

Definitely one of my all time favorites, especially Sonic 3 & Knuckles. I played Sonic 1 & 2 back on the Genesis but didn't get the chance to play 3 until years later when I got the Sonic collection on PC. And holy cheese, when I finally did play S3&K it blew my friggin' mind! :)
