"Oh hun, such a drama queen."


Titanfall Deluxe Edition went from $49.99 to $12.50. That's insane. It's a shame I didn't care for the game enough to keep it, $12 is an absolute steal. I liked it a lot and it was great for what it was, but really isn't my cup of tea. Still, I might have to consider the sale...$12. Wow. #4

It's listed at $98 on the BioWare Store and has photos of a model wearing it. It looks pretty good and it was my favourite outfit for Commander Shepard in ME3. I added myself to the newsletter so I'll be alerted when it's available to purchase. I absolutely love this jacket. #6

Surprisingly, a lot of people actually did play Eternal Sonata. I liked it quite a lot, but Resonance of Fate is my favourite JRPG, with Eternal Sonata following in second place. #18

The Crew is at $39.99 and it still isn't cheap enough. I played the beta and I wasn't impressed at all, no matter how hard I tried to like the game. Just like Thief; definitely want to play them start to finish someday, but current price tags are still too high for me. #1

Truly gorgeous in its own way. Wouldn't mind exploring the game without textures to see more of that. It really does remind me of Limbo quite a lot. I love it. #2

Very informative and very well written blog, longcat. It's not a topic I discuss often, but the problem lies therein with the humble dollar sign. Companies would rather pay these media outlets to hype up an experience to generate more revenue than actually craft an experience worth hyping. I can't tell you how many times I've told people in the past that if they spent half as much time, effort and money that they spent on paying off reviewers or blatant advertising and put that to... #1

I can certainly empathize with the situation and somewhat agree with your opening sentence. Most modders are certainly tremendous fans of a game, considering the time and effort they spent creating content to further customize or tailor the experience. I think the modding community is a great one, especially that of The Sims and Skyrim.

However, I disagree with your statement of "Once you release a game, it's no longer yours." That is completely false. Techland&... #1

In my opinion, this reads as a beginner's guide to video gaming, with practically the entire post detailing what most people would consider to be shelved into the common sense category. #1

I don't know why someone found it necessary to write an article about this and act like EA is the first and only developer to do this in mobile games. With basically any mobile game that requires "energy" to play, you have to either wait for your energy to refill or purchase energy with real currency. It's nothing new and as much as I hate EA, it's not fair to call them out on it individually when basically every mobile game has those microtransactions. #87

First of all, Ride to Retribution's mention has to be a joke. Not only was the game horrible, but the "sex" scene was embarrassing and awkward.

Secondly, with the mention of Dragon Age Inquisition, it was possible to play a gay character way back in 2007 with the original Mass Effect game and in 2009 with Dragon Age Origins, both from the same developer. Additionally, they got Dorian's bloody name wrong.

Christ alive. #30

Well, it would be $48, not $38, since it's 20% off new software. The Gamer's Club is great if you do business at Best Buy and only Best Buy, to make the annual fee actually worth it. #1.2.1

Well, not everyone wants to buy digital and it's usually for the same reason: you can't trade in or sell a digital game. I always buy physical copies of games primarily to have the game box on my shelf with the rest of my games, but secondary to that in the event that I ever decide to trade-in or sell the game.

Additionally, I'm not entirely sure what your opinion on digital sales has to do with the subject of the blog post. I mean, the point I was trying to make... #1.1

Damn, as soon as I saw this, I almost fell out of my chair. Shame it's not coming to Xbox One or PS4. Ah well. Now I think I'll turn on my Xbox 360 and play the digital copy of Indigo Prophecy I have on there. #7

So...because one of them was naked, it's automatically attempted rape? Are you kidding? Most of the Altruist cult members are naked. There was an alleged "expose" about the same scene and it was clarified that it was an attempted KIDNAPPING, not a rape.

Jesus Christ. #54

What really grinds my gears is that the digital version is still going to be available at the original launch date for EU and people are still whining that they don't want to wait for a physical copy. Either nut up and shut up, since you're getting free content, or buy the digital copy. #11

I don't know why anyone would get it from Steam for USD$85 when it's available right from Rockstar Games, both physical and digital, for $59.99. Not to mention the fact that some games are easier to mod when it's the retail copy, opposed to the Steam copy. #1

Dying Light isn't delayed. With 11 days until launch, the game's already gone gold at this point. Plus, if it were to be delayed, we would have received OFFICIAL word about it. #11

Well written piece, DragonKnight. I feel the need to point out that there is a difference between Feminists and Feminazis, the latter being more prevalent than the former. Feminism, as you said, is the simple concept of the advocacy of women's rights on the basis of equality between sexes; there are some places where feminism does not belong and video games is among those places.

When developers are making a game, they're not thinking about feminism or racism or sexis... #1
