    Except the game doesn't keep it a secret. While it doesn't have the best written manual in the world, the manual does explain how the system works. As for the store page description, while it...

    I picked it up in a bundle or something some time back. Steam says I've played it for half an hour, but I didn't even remember that until I looked at the store page. What I do remember now is that...

    Wii U version was 720p according to Digital Foundry. The Xbox 360 version was 720p as well, I think?

    Hah, I think I've finally figured out how Steam is doing its top sellers list on the front page.

    Steam uses "regular/local/non-global" rather than "global" for the front page top sellers. It also...

    It is presumably an attempt to fight user misconceptions about random chance, without making combat an "always this result" situation.

    If you display a hit chance of 95%, people pretty much assume...

    Yes, I'd heard some worrying things about Frontiers before, and that Kickstarter update was rather the opposite of reassuring. It sounds like another project where someone got in over their head and...

    Hrm, Humble put an icon in the corner of the images for the Early Access game. And in a surprising UI improvement for Humble, hovering over the icon pops up a tooltip that explains that the icon...

    Personally, the proportions of Bayonetta's character model are so wonky that she looks too alien to be a sexual figure. (Her model looks like it was Frankensteined out of body parts designed to...

    If you mean Endless Space, Steam is pretty flaky and inconsistent when it comes to free DLC. It can even be inconsistent within the various DLC for a single game.

    For some games, you can just go...

    Third-person games have those issues as well, but they aren't immersion-breaking issues in the same way that they are for me in first-person games. In a third-person game, the character I control is...

    Yeah, I often find first-person horror to be less immersive than third, due to first-person views in games often looking so unnatural to me. The wonky movement, improper visual effects, UI issues,...

    Valkyria Chronicles has been repeatedly bundled. Bayonetta, while a critical darling, has always had trouble finding a large paying audience.

    Bayonetta doesn't show on Steam's front page "Top...

    Wow, the component prices are really messed up on the store page for that Endless Space bundle. Steam is listing the Collection and the Harmony DLC as each having a regular price of $119.99, and...

    "Authorized" kind of carries two meanings, depending on how you look at it.

    Look at it one way, and you have "controlling" publishers that only distribute keys to chosen resellers. That is a bad...

    Bobtree's post linked to a search of "gmg" on IsThereAnyDeal's issue tracker. The response to issue #618 covers the suspension of GMG's coverage, listing three issues: the lack of regional feeds,...

    Bought it, for the third time.

    I wonder if anyone will mod in the Nintendo outfits from the Wii U version.

    I've found that when I fall behind on DLC releases with Paradox games, I have a lot less interest in future DLC. The price to catch up simply escalates so quickly.

    And when I fall behind, I tend...

    After the announcement was made that development was ending, people griped about the sale. Doublefine decided to try to spin the sale as a positive action. Doublefine's defense was to admit that...

    It was more than that. The promotional sale right before announcing the ending of development is perhaps what bugs me the most. This is particularly egregious because part of the selling point for...

    But what incarnation of Early Access will it use, and when will DoubleFine run out of scapegoats to blame for their own failings? They blamed Kickstarter for the various complaints levied against...

    Yeah, I remember arguing about his terrible UI designs and inflated game promises/claims on Usenet. Smart at the time was pretty much a punchline to jokes, or an example of what not to be or do (in...

    Unfortunately, as is often the case, we have no readily available trustworthy sales data. Pretty much anything you find online will cite VGChartz, but VGChartz will post any random claim as if it...

    Mind, Bayo 2 wouldn't even exist without Nintendo's support.

    Also mind that, if you are willing to go the route of emulation, the Wii U has been emulated on PC. Bayo 2 is playable, and you can...

    If they add training mode, then they might as well openly admit that this beta is primarily to drum up sales, rather than its official excuse of being a beta/research test for new networking code.
