    Buy a pre-built Unity package (or just pirate one), pay the $100 to put it through Greenlight, sell it for a couple of bucks, put it in sale and get it in a game bundle, and you too can sell...

    Like I said, I like procedural generation. Both handcrafted and procedural generation have their advantages and disadvantages, and each has situations where they can be superior. Each also has...

    Of course there are also large stretches of boredom in nature.

    And people go to see plenty of handcrafted stuff as well. Sure, people go to the Grand Canyon, Niagara Falls, and wildlife...

    Looks like it has one of those graphical pet peeves of mine. Everything is shiny, like it has been polished or waxed to a high gloss. The sand is shiny. The deck boards are shiny. The railings are...

    Yes, some Japanese game companies have no idea and no interest in the West. More have little to no experience with PC releases. Companies with little experience either have to make their own ports...

    Didn't it take rather a while between Unreal's announcement and its eventual release? That could be throwing off people's memories of just what it was competing with.

    The first two expansions had serial keys that you had to enter the first times that you tried to warp to their areas.

    Not horrible DRM on its own, except... the pop-up to enter your key was a...

    I give up. I'm going to look into ad block and script block options, almost entirely due to RPS.

    Cities: Skylines ad ran for a full week this time. I don't even know if it was (finally) pulled or...

    That is my worry as well. Procedural generation is nice for replayability, but even before you suss out the underlying rules, you can start seeing the patterns of design present.

    Worth noting...

    Weapon variety was way overblown in BL1. The hype was bazillions of possible weapons. Component parts could appear in all sorts of weird combinations, so you could have a burst fire rocket...

    Borderlands 1 is okay in single player. Certainly weaker than multiplayer, but at least a decent effort. (No where near either the pre-release hype or the potential of its ideas, though.)

    If you model all those aspects in extreme detail, then you will most likely narrow the scope of your game to match, at least if you ever want your game to be finished. You could spend a few years...

    Page shows 5 winners. It was one winner per day for a week. If you count only a business week of five days, then that would be a grand total of five winners for the whole contest.

    Updates to games like Crusader Kings II can break compatibility with popular mods. I'd guess that would be a big reason to allow access to older versions.

    As for how the beta channels work, it is...

    That you were rewarded for your previous day's progress helped as well. I was able to buy several hundred Wormholes at the start of today's game simply because I was in a game yesterday that reached...

    Steam Monster Game rewards the individuals, not the group. The poster was looking for the opposite.

    Steam Monster Game cares nothing about the groups; it is just that everyone in a game has the...

    Really? Impressions I've largely heard is that Revelations 2 was slightly worse than Revelations 1. But those were opinions from people who thought 6 was bad.

    Problem is, Red 5 might see it as a success.

    They at least made it sound like the pre-release income wasn't high enough for them to bother continuing with the game. They did the overhaul, and...

    Good deal for a first-party Nintendo game, but not exactly a PC bargain.

    Activision is publishing Transformers Devastation. While it probably won't be a great Transformers game specifically(*), it looks like it will be another decent to good Platinum brawler.

    People can argue this about many titles, and some will.

    Firefall was fun to me before its big pre-release overhaul to try to turn it into a more generic MMO experience. (Red 5 wasn't happy with...

    With Hand Fate, it isn't the mashing together of too many ideas. Design-wise, it is in an uncomfortable middle ground. The combat isn't quite good enough to carry the game over the issues...
