    Hrm. A nice idea, but its Red Cross listing uses 2013 numbers that have been questioned and potentially proven false. (For example, it claims a 5.6% fundraising expense, when their actual yearly...

    Indeed.

    The Red Cross has been criticized repeatedly for decades, for a multitude of reasons. The actual percentage of donations that get spent on their causes is estimated to be somewhat low,...

    Determined people have worked through those issues in the past, at least when the console was exploitable. Super Smash Bros Melee and Brawl were heavily modded by players. There was a fan-created...

    I think the BTA price actually went down last week. I want to recall it being up to $3.74 at one point before the reveal, before declining a few cents.

    Indie Gala has a Black Friday promotion, spend at least $30 in a unique transaction and get a free copy of This War of Mine.
