Do any of the people making MP chat comments actually play MP on Live? And if so, do you REALLY route chat out of your speakers?
A few more firmware updates and Pikmin on a store shelf, then we’ll talk.
Throw in a Black Friday sale just for kicks.
ON THE BONUS GAMES
You don’t pay what you want for those, and you don’t pay what you want for Steam keys. I mean, sure, technically you could pay what you want. As long as you’re above the threshold that they’ve set. The average price isn’t zero when the thing kicks off, you know.
And yes, on the bonus games, repeat customers are getting shafted. Because these days, it’s only ever recycled stuff from previous bundles. So if you’ve been picking these up, the bonus games are worth nothing to you. Which is incentive to give less money. I recall that the bonus games used to be their to incentivise people to up their donations, not to deter the repeat customers.
Honestly, the fact that you can choose for some of the money to go to charity doesn’t excuse them forever and ever.
Constant customers are getting shafted on the bonus games.
That’s a poor argument, as that behavior will simply drive people away. It happened at Kotaku, that’s why I’m here. I hated that they were doing movie reviews and things not related to gaming in the least.
“Just don’t click it, then.”
Since my criticism wasn’t given the least bit of care, they posted more and more of that stuff, and now their editorials are just balls crazy and it barely resembles a gaming site. So I quit. I’m sure I wasn’t alone. The same thing will happen here if people aren’t allowed to express their opinions when new stuff is tried out.
It is the customers’ responsibility to keep businesses in check. If you want to sit back and just be spoon-fed, that’s great for you. I appreciate that some readers care enough to let the editors know when they like or dislike something.
Mobile formatting is broke in a couple areas. Chrome beta on 4.2.2.
That’s good for you, I guess. I’ve said that I would buy a 3DS for a western release of Layton vs. Wright, but I don’t know what is up Capcom’s butt this gen.
Actually, they really have. Your one-off experience is not evidence to the contrary of anything.
Broken games have been let through, and they remain in the store. That’s documented on various sites. When the great sex purge happened, SI’s swimsuit app stayed while clothing apps that dressed mannequins were removed. Popular dating apps were kept while those catering toward the homosexual demographic were removed.
A tame visual novel adaptation of an Oscar Wilde story was removed while Kick-Ass was allowed to stay.
And then there’s the whole point of this article. Many apps that blatantly infringe on IP without even trying to hide it are let through.
Functional apps are denied simply because they carry a political message. While books, movies, music and tv shows that carry similar if not more inflammatory messages are welcomed.
Their curation is a fat joke.
They’ve also allowed plenty of broken apps into the market, and been very hypocritical concerning what apps break their rules and which don’t.
Google doesn’t curate, and MS doesn’t have it nearly this bad from what I’ve seen.
Apple gets flak over this because of their completely backwards curation methods which have created boatloads of hypocrisy and are effectively pointless. It’s not just because they’re Apple. Although it’s funny that this curated app store (in the sense that they actually curate) is more of a flop than Ping.
Context says you’re justifying. I don’t see why you’re so intent on defending this guy. He’s an idiot.
Let’s not forget the word “professional” when talking about professional athletes.
That’s not a justification, that’s a sign of how young e-sports are.
“Everyone’s doing it, so it’s okay” is never a justification.
An energetic rivalry does not equate to being a dick.
Many, if not nearly all athletes can compete fiercely, but still shake their opponent’s hand with a smile at the end of a match regardless of the outcome.
This guy is a douche. I’m disappointed they let his behavior continue for as long as it did.
I look forward to trying these out.
To the Moon really got me, and I’m looking forward to the next episode.
I’m not spreading false information. I’m well aware of the design of the controller. I’m also well aware that it leads to the buttons getting stuck and the faceplates coming off when they shouldn’t. To such an extent that they have gone on the record stating that they’ve fixed the button issue in production and will replace controllers on a case-by-case basis. The backers might have got what they were promised, but it doesn’t change the fact that they got boned.
Don’t blindly defend the corporate entity.
The hardware wasn’t even all that finished. The controller can just come apart in your hands.
You only get the new games if you beat the average at checkout. They changed that a while ago.
Now you’re just daydreaming.
Only one gamepad can be used with any Wii U right now. I don’t think they’re ever going to support 4.
Thank you for this comment.
I’m honestly surprised people are still tapping. I tried it when it was launched. It was a broken mess. The next three patches didn’t help at all. I uninstalled it and moved on. I have better things to do.
It had my curiosity, but it never had my attention.
It’s a better indication that the post I replied to. That’s all I was doing. I didn’t say that I was positive he received that much money.
Why does it have to deviate? Why can’t it help the developer achieve their vision?
Yeah, Uncharted, Mass Effect, The Walking Dead, and Bioshock all sucked so hard.
55,000 sales in the first week. That’s $825,000 in revenue. Taking out a 33% chunk for MS to pocket, that leaves $552,750 for Blow. Taking another 35% for lump sum taxes gives a remainder of 359,287 left for Blow.
In first week sales alone. The quote says a “high-paying job,” not an entry level job. I wasn’t able to quickly find lifetime sales.
He made plenty of money. He also likes to bite the hand that fed him. But that was an okay try to play the whole thing down.
But you’re right, no millionaire. At least not in one week.
