    The background ads are getting even worse for wasting CPU. It looks like they've learned to use multiple CPU cores.

    I'm guessing that it is the current Elite Dangerous background ad that causes...

    Two pages is hardly "quite a bit of reading". Looking about 10-15 posts earlier on the same page would have found a comment that I had posted mentioning that Konami started as a jukebox rental and...

    Like I've said before, Konami is about more than video games. Konami has reached a point where less than half its money comes from "digital entertainment", a catch all category that not only...

    If you have no issue with running 7, then you have little reason to actually dislike 8.1. The hate that 8 received was overblown. At their cores, 8.1 and 7 are both Windows.

    If you are referring to my post, I made no such claim that big open levels meant games had to be slow.

    I was talking about factors that encouraged a focus on using cover. Games being slower is a...

    Could be because modern FPS moved towards slower movement rates and more hit-scan weapons. Possibly even the move towards more "realistic", but open, environments.

    Reducing movement speeds meant...

    That video isn't exactly stealth kills. Rather, it is standing in front of people and stabbing them as they empty their clips in your general direction.

    I don't remember STALKER being that...

    I believe that figure comes from Modern Warfare 2, which got rather a bit of publicity. Cost $40-50 million to make, with marketing and production/distribution expenses pushing it to a $200 million...

    Konami is more like a movie theater that expanded into the steakhouse business, AK-47 manufacturing, and house painting. Later it expanded its steakhouse business to sell cheap burgers. Then it...

    Sports aren't, really.

    I regularly read Grantland, even though I don't watch most of the sports that it writes about. The articles are good and varied. Basketball, beyond actually playing the...

    I don't mind the Windows 8 interface. I don't even mind losing the Start Button bookmark menu, which had tended to get cluttered with unnecessary stuff when I used 7 and XP anyway. 8.1 retains a...

    It isn't an Eastern/Western thing. It is a gamer/non-gamer thing.

    From a video gamer standpoint, Konami has been stupid in its handling of Silent Hill, in losing Kojima, in how it burns bridges...

    From what I recall hearing, while it was a rather pretty game, the game design itself was considered fairly mediocre?

    Honestly, no.

    There are some compatibility issues with some older software. There is apparently compatibility problems with older Gamemaker games. Super Crate Box, for example, is unplayable on...

    Guys like Super Bunnyhop have been covering this for a while.

    In addition to their increased focus on mobile, Konami is gambling that Japan will legalize gambling. A good chunk of Konami's...

    I want to recall that they removed Pinball from an OS that it still ran under.

    Mind, Microsoft is the company that once broke its defrag utility, and then wouldn't fix it because they'd ended...

    Don't forget that after Destructoid reposted the rumor, Mirada Studios sent them an email demanding that the story be pulled, and said that the story was breaking an NDA. (No one at Destructoid had...

    I'd buy it if I thought it was Warlock 2. I never bought Warlock 2, because I felt it was too close to rebuying the first Warlock.

    But I'm almost certain the extra games will be more games that I...

    I guess so, because the Abyss Odyssey that I played didn't have any of that feeling.

    Abyss has none of Smash's focus on maneuverability as a core design concern. Smash's special moves are...

    A Hotline Miami rip off wouldn't be so bad if it was good. Hotline Kavkaz doesn't appear to be good.

    As for the rest, I couldn't help but notice that Pirates VS Corsairs is a cheap port of a...

    Except it isn't particularly reminiscent of Smash Bros at all. It pretty much only takes the command inputs from Smash.

    Mechanically and design-wise, the rest of the game is little to nothing...

    Gamespot was reporting US prices, and GMG's $39 (35% off) was a lot cheaper than Steam's and GOG's $54 (10% off).

    Though it looks like GMG either ran through its supply of keys or decided to end...

    CD Projekt says that they don't know the source of the keys GMG is selling. GMG refuses to say where they got the keys.

    We don't know where the keys were coming from. Were they resells from some...

    Playing the demo, I found it to be mediocre at its best moments. It looked nice enough, but stage layout was boring and combat was downright awful. It was way too annoying just trying to kill rats...
  25. CDProjekt asks users to not buy Witcher 3 from GMG

    For those who like Green Man Gaming, there is a rather worrying article up on Gamespot.

    Green Man Gaming is currently selling The Witcher 3 for $38.99 (35% off the launch price). The problem is...
