    Yep. All kinds of businesses fail for all kinds of reasons, very very frequently. Not having a good, complete business plan is one major reason.

    But...I think aspiring indie developers who don't...

    Apple still buys a ton of components from Samsung, despite their bitter rivalry in the mobile phone market and in patent court. I'm just saying, Microsoft potentially buying AMD is pretty unlikely to...

    That's an exaggeration (Hearthstone requires some skill and thought to make the best plays), but it is severely crippled by the high level of randomness present in many of its most powerful cards....

    If they're using the name, they presumably have the license to Forgotten Realms, and hopefully the D&D 5e ruleset as well. I haven't played the latest edition of D&D, but response seems generally...
  5. The dictionary is one thing, but in practice...

    The dictionary is one thing, but in practice nobody actually uses the verb "default" like that outside of a financial context. At best, it's a really confusing title. Fun game tho.
  6. This is so true. I've actually dug through bits...

    This is so true. I've actually dug through bits of Football Manager's match engine code in a dissasembler (this is easier with Mac binaries because you can see the original function names, fyi for...

    Buy the game with what? Your credit card / PayPal account that already got flagged when you were abusing refunds with your previous account?

    Fraud prevention is a well established thing, and this...

    Okay, let's be honest. We've all done some illegal downloading at some point, right? Does scamming the Steam refund system honestly sound like a better option to any of you, personally, knowing that...

    A few indie developers are now complaining about this publicly on Twitter. Mostly the usual suspects who complain about everything and hate their customers.

    Still can't believe how many people...

    Precisely. The indie/journo clique is a very real and growing thing over the past few years. It's not quite as sleazy as receiving gifts from EA or whatever, but the unintentional bias is there for...

    People spend way too much time worrying about things that are completely negligible. You see this all the time in politics, with people who are genuinely outraged about welfare fraud or whatever. Yes...

    It's really easy to find all the untouched GOG...

    In a game like Pillars or NWN2, you may as well just abstract the towns and cities entirely, Darklands style. Give the player a totally different interface that saves them a bunch of pointless...

    VR is going to be a big deal. Not immediately, not for every single game (a typical FPS is probably the worst case scenario for VR), but it seems more or less inevitable. This is a cool new...

    As a backer, I don't give a shit about game development at this point, I just hope he's ok. Reminds me of myself at around his age when I was setting goals for myself, failing repeatedly and...

    I don't know why people complain about Broken Age when the DF-9 situation is a million times worse.

    I'm sure Tim Schafer has good answers about re-planning and delaying the Kickstarter project,...

    No no no no no. Go read all the things I'm probably not allowed to link to or even talk about here. Shouldn't be too hard to find. The original source is long and painful, but very important.

    There's very clearly one significantly-less-bad "side" here, and I wouldn't call most of them extreme. But other than condemning harassment, they haven't really done anything right in this mess...

    It's incredibly frustrating to see a variety of legitimate issues get drowned out by a rather large contingent of idiots who simply hate women - the eagerness to focus on Anita Sarkeesian (why??) is...

    Zoe Quinn is an awful person. There's ample proof of that, and everyone who's bothered to look at it agrees, right?

    I mean, you don't get to treat someone like shit and then cry "privacy!" when...

    I'm always baffled by this sort of complaint. What does "bland" even mean? Does everything need to be some crazy, unique fantasy or sci-fi world? What would that add to a game like this?

    It's set...

    If you use Hola or a VPN, you'll see the US prices. They might reject non-US payment methods for USD transactions, but they might not.


    Oh good, that means I can buy Banished later today without...

    Uh, I've been doing this for no less than five years. Regardless of what they may put in the EULA, they don't actually care.

    Don't bother trying unless you have a valid US credit card, though....

    I'm not a particularly big fan of Wil Wheaton, but he and his friends would be a million times better at producing and hosting something like this. Or just anyone who 1) cares a bit about the subject...
