@y2ken: I wasn't watching it in the best of qualities, so it was hard to see the crowd past the first row. I was also looking the wrong way.

Did anyone see Dan in Mania? I think he tweeted that he had on-camera side seats, but I couldn't make him out of that crowd.

@bollard: The PC version has been leaked for a week now, and since Iran (where I live) doesn't have any copyright rules, stores are selling GTA V PC like hot cakes.

@brendan: I played almost every release on the 360, so I guess what I am looking for are the PC-only gems that I somehow missed. Here's the list I've conjured so far.

Blackguards

The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing

Gunpoint

Ori and the Blind Forest

Shoot Many Robots

Splunky

Krater

Chivalry

@anywhereilay: GTA V for PC has already been leaked where I live, it's pretty good!

@slag: I really only looking for those PC-ass PC games that never made it to consoles.

I used to be a PC player, until I got a 360 and didn't want to deal with the hassle of the poor ports and honestly garbage PC support back then anymore. So, from 2006 to this very year, I've been gaming on 360. When they announced the next gen consoles, and they looked like a mid-range PCs, I was very bummed out. Thus, instead of buying a new console, I am building a beefy-ass PC.

Which brings up the question, what did I miss during the time I was away from PC gaming? I played almost every retail game that came out for 360, but didn't dwell much with XBLA releases. I am open to any type of game, any genre, any anything.

Thanks in advance!

Is this because of Bat-nipples?

But like, really, out of the billion or so people that apparently saw that first Avengers movie, how many of them actually thought "But it's not really a proper Avengers movie until they get Spider-Man in there"? How many people actually had any idea that he was missing? How many people actually give a shit that they included Hawkeye and Black Widow? They're fine movies, but at a certain point it just feels like they're preying on a hollow sense of half-formed nostalgia people feel like they should probably have for superheroes, even if they know basically nothing about any of them.

The answer is no-one. However, if they said, "HEY! SPIDER-MAN IS IN THE AVENGERS!" they would sell even more tickets.

Indeed. So like, fuck it, put Hugh Jackman Wolverine in the Avengers. Put Groot in the Avengers. Just go all the way.

It's not about selling more tickets, it's about extending the lifespan of this cinematic universe they've built. Because it's only a matter of time before it comes crashing down, Marvel's entire strategy now has to be to make it to Infinity War before it all collapses, or else they'll be left holding a pretty huge fucking bag.

To us, yes. To Marvel? Probably not. They know this wave is going to end sometime, and that people will move on to something new, and they want to milk as much money as they can out of it before it does. They have made some fine movies, some of the best in recent years, but let's not pretend a big company like Marvel with millions of employees is about artistic integrity.
