    Here is a simple rubric for this: If a member of the games industry is accused and/or convicted of a criminal act (as in the CAH thing and the Paul Trowe/Al Lowe thing) then it is news and those who...

    Find the coverage that the journalist in question wrote and published after the relationship began. Here's a hint: there isn't any.

    I'm probably going to regret this, but: Nathan left because he was offered a job at Kotaku, which is based in the SF Bay Area, which is where he lives. The most cursory of googlings would have told...

    I'm kind of surprised there hasn't been a Lighthouse Customer for it. Presumably waiting for it to move from Earliest Access to Early Access.

    I posted this in the comments on the story on the main page, but I suspect that'll be dropping off the front page soon enough, so I'll re-post it here:

    This actually makes a crazy sort of sense...

    The hotly anticipated by apparently no one fifth and final part of this is finally recorded and edited and uploaded right here.

    Next up for these is going to be the Darksiders series, but I can't...

    Niven explicitly called out the Dyson Sphere as the jumping off point for the Ringworld, the idea being that you'd only need the mass of Jupiter to build a Ringworld, but a Dyson Sphere pretty much...

    I really liked that set-up. As it is now, once a story drops off the front page it becomes too much of a hassle to continue any discussions that may have been going on in the comments.

    Installing from Windows for a dual-boot is supposed to be working now. I haven't tried it myself, though I've been toying with the idea of doing a Linux dual-boot for a while now. SteamOS has the...

    The handles don't hook forward. They're symmetrical from back to front.

    I've wanted hands on with this thing since it was announced because there have been a lot of design elements that I really...

    O Rly?


    This isn't a kickstarter or indiegogo or any other crowdfunding campaign.

    It's not 30 euro and/or dollars for a "promise." It's for a playable (albeit extremely early, buggy, and...

    No (and also "no" about pro-basketball players only making NBA income). Quite a few of them primarily make their money from ad revenue in their videos, which can be pretty lucrative, but is difficult...

    Rocket Blocks - A thing that I am making.

    For the past few weeks I've been working on learning Unity and making a simple Meteos clone that I'm calling Rocket Blocks.

    I've recorded a couple of Devlogs here and here.

    And I've just now...

    I haven't fired it up for a while, but as it's the Origin 'On The House' deal through the third, it seems like it would be a good time to try and set up some RPS BF3 matches again.

    It's absolutely worth picking up on PC, even with the unevenness of the port. The console versions' native resolution is stupidly low. They dropped it slightly below 720p as soon as MS retired the...

    Well, at present I'm not, alas.

    I'm trying to make some tentative moves to get back in, but I can't deal with the uncertainty of starting from contract QA again, and it's extremely difficult to...

    Seriously. Or you could do a 50 cent tier for the game, and then higher value tiers for ancillary stuff + game, so Epic only gets 2.5 cents per copy sold via Kickstarter.

    I foresee Epic realizing...

    Under the old UDK license, all the proceeds from the Kickstarter counted as income that Epic got a cut of. Somehow I doubt that's changed with the new model.

  22. Games That I Worked On (A Let's Play series)

    I'm pretty solidly an AMD guy since they tend to be a bit more open with their tech than nVidia ever has been (look at nVidia's treatment of PhysX versus AMD's handling of stuff like TressFX and...

    Outside the UK 'spaz' doesn't have the same cultural cachet of shocking insensitivity to the developmentally disabled.
