    I guess if you are high enough, older graphics won't bother you so much.

    Yes, you have to remember that businesses and governments work on the idea that if you aren't receiving the maximum amount of money possible, then you are in fact losing money.

    The bad AI in Warriors games appears to be at least somewhat intentional. A lot of people find the appeal in Warriors games is mowing down large numbers of enemy troops. Due to how the combat...

    To be fair, Dreams in the Witch House was in one of the Groupees mixed content bundles. One Steam game, three DRM-free games, some ebooks, and some music. I bought it for a legit copy of Dreams...

    People buy the pure music bundles that Groupees offers, so there does appear to be a market for music. I've listened to a decent amount of music that I've picked up through Groupees game bundles (as...

    Ah, the rather flawed Berlin Interpretation. Understandable, when you consider it was created to exclude certain games and ideas from being considered Roguelikes as much or more than to actually...

    Permadeath is normally found in Roguelikes. Even there, it was generally easy for people to save scum.

    Roguelites tend to not have true permadeath. Some games let you keep experience levels. ...

    Roguelites are much safer gambles.

    The lack of permadeath makes the games more accommodating, and allows for the games to also be made longer. Being able to carry over some form of progression...

    They rolled back the auction house because even PC users were calling the console port the best version of the game. The auction house wasn't the only reason for that opinion, but it was the part...

    What data would you use?

    Publisher-supplied specs are often enough inaccurate. Sometimes they seem to be pure guesswork. Magicka had its specs increased after the game was released and people...

    For better or worse, shooters with tons of screen-obscuring and/or distracting effects appears to be a somewhat popular sub-genre. The screen obscuring effects are seen as part of the challenge,...

    It certainly is possible that Blizzard might do future rebalances that favor microtransactions. Don't forget that Diablo 3 was originally balanced with the auction house, and the Real Money Auction...

    I wonder how many people will petition Blizzard to add the real money shop to the North American version. Because there will be people in North America as well who are willing to pay for experience...

    The quote comes from Molyneux talking about how he wouldn't do a Kickstarter at the start of a game's development again. So that could be what he is referring to. Alternatively, he could be saying...

    To be fair, Molyneux did not actually admit to lying there. He said that there was an overwhelming urge to over-promise, but he does not actually say that he did it himself.

    Exploitation of unintentional or misguided features. Even then, 'cheating' is a matter of degrees.

    For example: Street Fighter 2 had several glitches involving Guile. A Guile player could lock...

    To be fair, Portal 2 and SpaceChem are both around four years old. Portal 2 launched at $50 on PC, and $55 on consoles. I believe SpaceChem launched at $20. Hadean Lands is $5, but it was also...
