Papa MidnightHere's the announcement page. It now operates on Steamworks: http://steamcommunity.com/games/321040/announcements/detail/13319517079995034704/01/2015 - 12:45pm
Papa MidnightNews tip (Not an April Fool's Joke): Codemasters has published an update to DiRT 3 on Steam that removes Games for Windows Live. It is now called "Dirt 3 Complete Edition". Existing owners of DiRT 3 will see the title update in their library.04/01/2015 - 12:43pm
MaskedPixelanteI might be wrong, but aren't the console versions of Minecraft handled by a completely different studio?04/01/2015 - 11:52am
Papa MidnightMight want to keep an eye on this case. It's effects could be pretty wide reaching: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2015/03/if-you-believe-enough-can-you-invalidate-a-patent-supreme-court-to-decide/04/01/2015 - 11:52am
E. Zachary KnightMojang Support is trying to claim they have no responsibility for broken content on the PS3 version of Minecraft.04/01/2015 - 9:23am
MaskedPixelantehttp://www.destructoid.com/kojima-productions-logo-removed-from-silent-hills-website-289814.phtml So... Japan doesn't usually do April Fool's, right?04/01/2015 - 7:51am
E. Zachary KnightXKCD is really fun this morning. http://xkcd.com/04/01/2015 - 7:37am
E. Zachary KnightI managed to wrangle a refund out of Sony for the broken texture pack. But for actual issues with texture packs, they referred me to Mojang. When I asked mojang about it, they referred me to Sony.04/01/2015 - 7:16am
Andrew EisenHuh?04/01/2015 - 2:42am
Matthew Wilson@AE I think the first dragon age did it the best. the person you played was treated differently based class,race, and gender. if the npc are going to act like 2015, you should just set the game in 2015 and add magic and dragons.04/01/2015 - 1:23am
E. Zachary KnightYeah, the PS3. My son paid for the Steampunk Texture Pack and it would not work at all. No matter what I did, it wouldn't allow us to save.03/31/2015 - 10:56pm
Sora-ChanConsole version?03/31/2015 - 10:40pm
E. Zachary KnightSo, Mojang has been selling a broken texture pack for Minecraft since at least Dec. 2014 and it hasn't been fixed yet.03/31/2015 - 10:30pm
Andrew EisenI think TT Games gets away with multiple LEGO games a year because they're all based on different franchises. If there were two or three LEGO Star Wars games every year, I think people would feel the same fatigue as they do with Assassin's Creed.03/31/2015 - 6:40pm
Andrew EisenIn other words, a hero is male because that's the default. A hero is female because of a gender-related reason. So, male heroes are for everyone. Female heroes are for women.03/31/2015 - 5:32pm
Andrew EisenHer point is that "When archetypal fantasy heroes in games are overwhelmingly portrayed as men, it reinforces the idea that... women should be able to empathize with male characters but that men needn’t be able to identify with women’s stories."03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
Andrew EisenDaniel - She doesn't say that in any of the TvW videos and I doubt she's said elsewhere that all games with male protagonists are male power fantasies. Anyway, you seem to be conflating two different ideas.03/31/2015 - 5:30pm
MaskedPixelantehttps://twitter.com/Yuriofwind/status/583028257890635776 Oh snap!03/31/2015 - 5:14pm
WymorenceFor me it just boils down to the fact that, even at a giant company, when a game comes out annually it just gives it a vibe of being rushed out the door. And god knows Unity sucked some major lemur with all its bugs...03/31/2015 - 4:22pm
PHX CorpI launched my spotify account today, and I kinda went a little overboard with adding music03/31/2015 - 3:59pm
