Surely nintendo can weather a poor generation after the success of the wii? I'm sure in a few years they'll bounce back with some other crazy new device. I would be very sad if they got out the hardware game as they're really the only games company that really does try new things every generation.

@snide: awesome! I'm sure you guys know what you're doing :-) Mongo isn't bad, it just gets very difficult to deal with once file sizes get very large and the auto sharding can cause problems if you're not careful with it. Redis is pretty sweet and can do loads of cool things, although i'm still leaning towards memcachd + beanstalkd + nginx combo. I prefer small flexible components and tend to also steer away from full stack web development and focus on small service APIs. The upsurge in Composer usage has made managing dozens of small services much easier also.
I hope you get time to do more designer live streams in the future. Would love to get the chance to talk more about what goes on in the running of your sites.
I really hope you're being careful with your NoSQL implementation, especially if you're using MongoDB. I work as a sys admin and i'm getting a growing number of calls from companies in trouble over the last 6 months.
Whats the benefit of Hardcore mode? Can you get better loot drops or are there only achievements to make hardcore something worth doing?
The graphics don't look great but i'm willing to forgive that if it plays right. The problem with side scrolling fighting games is the pace doesn't feel quite right anymore. Even going back to playing more recent classics like streets of rage, modern games just play a lot faster. I think its the call of duty effect.
I don't really want to hit the same guy 50 times to kill him, instead there should be 50 guys you need to hit once and time perfectly. Thats what it takes to feel like a badass in a video game now. Precision and speed.
I struggle with drinking Whisky straight unless I drink it like a shot. I have no idea how people deal with it straight. Was it something you have consciously keep doing until you develop a taste? Or is it always there and thats what keeps it a longer drink?
