My fears of Square Enix' incompetence seem to be coming to fruition. http://ning.it/11ygVZh

I know the Canadian studios seem unaffected. There were some European staff involved with Tomb Raider and Deus Ex and I hope they weren't affected either but regardless, my sympathies go to them being made redundant.

This is ridiculous. TB discussed this in a recent TGS Podcast. He said that these sales projections were completely unrealistic, and were made a couple of years ago (during the time the games were being developed). Comparing then, and now, things have changed. We are getting ready for the next-gen, this generation has been extremely long, and people are getting tired of the BS of this generation and are just not buying as many games or consoles. So, those initial projections were probably already too high 2 or 3 years ago, and thus way too high now.

Also, weren't metacritic scores used to calculate the sales projections? That, in it of itself, is fucking stupid! My sympathies to all those affected by this.

How many hours of gaming do I have left?

So I thought it would be a good idea to do the math on how many hours of spare time I have left before I throw in the towel for good. With a sizable backlog, psplus throwing close to half a dozen games at me each month, new games coming out, two kids, some physical activity (rock climbing) and trying to get to a competent level of playing guitar, bass, piano and drums, its time for a reality check. Unsurprisingly, the math is not in my favor. 

In the last few years, I have not had…

EpicBattleCry Skirmish 245 - Week of August 18 2014

Hey all, as some of you may already know I was in the hospital over the weekend with salmonella poisoning. Its taken me a few days to get back in the swing of things so I thought we'd do things a bit differently this week for EpicBattleCry. I'm posting a playlist with all five of this week's video episodes in addition to the…

How to breathe life into a new Zelda game: a longwinded rambling

Right so a couple of things I feel Zelda SHOULD be

1. Link should always be Male.

(I have no reasoning behind this but Idk I just always thought it to be a universal constant, and making him a female for the sake of making him a female is accomplishes nothing)

2. I am totally all for a female protagonist.

(Why not make Zelda the protagonist for once?)

What I was loosely thinking was:

Setting: Link is prince of Hyrule and in charge of either…

This isn't a thread about PC being better than consoles. It is already a fact, just as a higher frame rate is better than a so called filmic 24 or 30 fps experience. But enough of that, there is…Continue
