Even if the only thing these guys did was Skylanders, they're probably set for life, unless they got really screwed in their Activision deal.
Hooray for health packs! I have never liked regenerating health. It's like there's no penalty for recklessness anymore.
Or at least they're not likely to get any in a given week.
It sounds like the world's largest demo kiosk, sort of.
Final Fantasy VII cost $45 million to make, not $145 million. Couldn't be bothered to double check your facts, could you?
It's a sad day when you can take a game where your spaceship transforms into a mech and it's not Game of the Year.
It's absurd to me that they're taking the Hobbit, a single book that was the length of any of the books in the LotR trilogy, and splitting it into three movies. Now they can't even make a complete Hobbit game? IT WAS ONE BOOK!
Call of Duty and Assassin's Creed absolutely need a break. That well is completely dry and needs a few years to refill. Everyone's complaining about Ghosts.
The end of this piece sort of puts a damper on the rest.
You think Sony has sold 150 PS4 units?
The main thing is that they use turns as flexible currency. You can borrow turns from the future to do many attacks at once, or you can skip turns and build them up for the future.
Wow, this series dates back to 1993, and they're only now working on the third installment. EA and Activision could learn to exercise restraint like this.
Seeing a digital TCG makes me wonder about the nature of traditional TCGs. Was Magic: the Gathering the first game with DLC? (Well, not downloadable, but you know.)
Do all dungeon crawlers move like that? I thought Soul Hackers did it because the game was so old, but I feel like Etrian Odyssey does it too.
Sounds interesting, but the uninspiring combat is a turn-off for a JRPG, considering how much of it I imagine there's going to be. I hope the Bravely Default system becomes more of an industry standard.
Doesn't say anywhere that Microsoft is going under, just that they might hand off Xbox to another company.
Huh, I didn't realize John Carmack had influence in this project. I wonder what he thinks of the Facebook acquisition.
Very curious to see how they'll make World of Tanks work on an iPad. It's not a game that's light on controls.
A Person of Interest video game would be FREAKING AMAZING.
It's misleading for the reason I state literally right above you, Captain Reading Comprehension. Even if people do read more deeply and understand what Microsoft is actually trying to say, psychology dictates that our first impression is the strongest one in our brain.
