With Steam workshop support?
The Steam User Score is currently my most trusted metric for how good a game is, something which is considered "overwhelmingly positive" with a couple thousand user reviews is usually a worthy purchase.
For non-steam users, imagine Metacritic except you can only submit your score/review if you own the actual game and it's either thumbs up or down.
I know a lot of people that would buy an Xbone right away if they could install that.
You insensitive clod!
AI and the technological singularity gives way to a 40k style Machine God.
It only takes a minute to make your own, besides, the ones you're selling are probably bogus ones developed by the NSA with backdoors for mind reading.
Ethics board must be a bunch of chimps. It's not Little Albert, but then again, it's on such a massive scale with 700k users. What if someone committed suicide because this manipulation?
Even if Mario Kart sells well and gets some machines off the shelf, it's not like 3rd party developers will experience a moment of epiphany and line up up to produce exclusive triple A titles for the system. Where did this 'wunderwaffe' type of thinking come from?
I can't imagine some soulless CEO of EA slamming his desk, denouncing Sony/MS and rushing over to Japan to give Iwata a teary-eyed congratulatory blowjob because MK8 sold so well.
Never heard anyone say this "in the wild", neither did I ever come across a single person that got confused by Wii and WiiU.
This looks like something marketing and spin doctors would come up with.
CBS and the FDA might have a shit fit if you use blood innit.
I have a *very* rare name/surname combination, so I'm easy to find, or at least I would be if I had a Facebook account, which I don't.
So I've had two employers ask me why they can't find anything about me on Google/Facebook, one of them even asked me straight up if I had served time in prison. So I'm not surprised by the findings, at all.
Just smother it with a pillow and put it out of its misery. Cross-platform support and Indie games won't save it.
I bought Win8 using a pirated Win7. I suspect MS turned a blind eye as well, as my poorly cracked copy constantly nagged about being counterfeit software etc.
I like the Urban Dictionary definition. It's descriptive and succinct
"1. Software that is hastily made, without proper testing, and 'shoveled' down consumers throats in order to make some quick cash. "
We've had them since time immemorial. Indeed, in the past the precursors of LJN sold cheap chess boards made out of clay, straw and cow dung when real developers used hard wood or ivory.
Blaming it on the name... It's a factor but it's not the entire explanation.
Yes, Nintendo will sell a decent amount of machines whenever they unleash their eagerly awaited first party titles, that's basically Nintendo's own analysis and that's the problem. They're going to sell millions of Zelda/Mario/Kart/Smash Bros, but third party developers get to eat shit and nobody will have the confidence to develop proper games for the system apart from shovelware and some token conversions of 360/PS3 games.
At this rate Wii U will have the worst third party library since the Wii and N64. They're lucky they have strong handhelds to keep 'em alive.
