20 bucks or less is 3 bucks. More means a little more. A buck or so.

I voted for Liara. She was the first video game character I ever really felt attracted too. But GLaDOS reminds me of my dead wife, so if she wins the whole fucking thing, that's cool too.
I read an interview in Game Informer with Keiji Inatune who worked for Capcom and helped design the Mega Man franchise. He also became senior corporate officer and oversaw the creation of Onimusha, Dead Rising, and Lost Planet.
In the interview, he talks about how Japanese development companies still play by the old rules, "I'm going to tell you (independent developers) what to do, and you're going to do it." They really look down upon independent developers, he says.
He goes on to state "as long as that core mindset exists in Japan, the number of opportunities that exist for independent developers there will forever be limited."
The interview goes on with some more views about lack of PC support due to no consumer support in Japan. The rest is mostly about his opportunities with Kickstarter for his Mighty No. 9 project. Supposedly a Mega Man spiritual successor.
When I read the interview, he didn't say Japanese development was dead or bad, just stuck in some weird oldschool and consumer driven quandary. Maybe that's what is needed, a fresh face, but how do you sale to a consumer that doesn't want innovation? As for me, I still find great value in some games from Japanese Developers. I do wish they would let the smaller more creative teams expand within the larger developers. But we still have a few that get their games out to the west that are distinctively different than anything I would call a Japanese game.
Might & Magic: Clash of the Heroes. I got it for free for being an Xbox Gold member. Downloaded and never played it, becuase I had just bought a PS3 and was going through some exclusives. I finally started playing after I finished GTA V. I'm about 20 hours in. It's addictive as hell.
The White Wolf of course. But I'm sure Garrus will win. People have a hard on for him for some reason. He was alright, but he ain't no Witcher.
What makes the WiiU version of Deus Ex: HR definitive? The issue is that although definitive versions on some platform is neat it still may not mean that much where all we need to do is remember which version was the definitive version of Soul Calibur 2.
The combination of DLC integration and the gamepad. From what I've read, it's used very well. Well enough to buy the game for a third time. Played it on the 360 and bought the PC version cheap. Maybe I'm crazy.
