    Game Awards 2018 (1:30am England time)

    Are there multiple Scorpions like there are multiple Sub-Zeros? Anywho, I liked the last two MK games.

    The Epic Store already has better developer support than the Windows 10 store.

    This is such a weird show.

    I hate the term post-apocalypse. Apocalypse should be the literal end of the world.

    I'm so happy you were wrong about this and it turned out to be something potentially decent.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    Seems like I do. I haven't bought an Alexa device from Amazon so I didn't know thats how they did things.

    Xbox "Scarlett" - next gen consoles

    I think people have just assumed that MS are going to do console VR/MR next gen so it just seemed noteworthy to me that it wasn't mentioned. The concept he mentioned at the start of the video about buying a console from MS and then have it show up preloaded with your account details seemed handy but also a bit of a security headache.

    Apparently MS are interested in buying Discord? First I've heard about that. No mention of VR in that video.
  11. Changing to a 25 percent cut on the first $60million in sales before dropping to 20 percent on everything after that would give the big publishers the same $3million increase I mentioned earlier but also benefit smaller developers. I'm sure someone is crunching the numbers to figure out just how many games will fall into each royalty tier but maybe the number of games making between $10million and $50million is so small that there won't be many titles affected by that tier and instead all the benefit will go to the likes of Sega and Square-Enix? If console makers follow suit on this pricing model then it's another nail in the coffin for physical media.
  12. https://www.theverge.com/2018/11/30/18120577/valve-steam-game-marketplace-revenue-split-new-rules-competition Feels like this deserves it's own topic. Based on my crude sums this means that if a $60 game sells a million copies on Steam then the developers will be $3 million better off under these new rules. So how long will it be before other platform holders announce similar changes to their stores? Has the departure of games like Call of Duty and Fallout from Steam had a noticeable effect on Valves bottom line?

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Is the team behind the Vita's software still at Sony? I'm open to correction on this, and I'm sure I will be, but wasn't control of the PlayStation division and hardware shifted from Japan to the US at some point recently? It could well be that the people behind PS1 emulation on the Vita's simply aren't there anymore. Anyway, I cancelled my preorder today. The cashier I was dealing with suggested that they'd had a lot of cancellations in the last week or two.

    PlayStation Classic - December 2018

    Disappointing to see that this ended up more like an ATgames product than a Nintendo classic. A relatively mediocre selection of games is bad enough but a mediocre selection combined with poor emulation has killed any remaining interest I had in this.

    Football Thread 2018/19

    I'd love to know when McCarthy was offered a contract. Whole thing looks like they had to invent a job for Kenny when a backlash to the way Delaney is running things started to develop.
