@efesell: I disagree. 'Yo' is quite a harsh sound where as 'Yosh' is soft, and that sounds like yosh to me.

Well either way I wanna say that Smash Bros has said it the other way so who knows.

Yoshi is weird.

I don't doubt that Yo-she is the 'canon' pronunciation. I was mostly joking.

Yoshi is based on a nickname for some Japanese names which are definitely pronounced Yo-she. Like Yoshitsune or Yoshimitsu.

This is the kind of settlement where the company possibly gains more than they lose.

so damn pathetic, there's no damage thus nothing should be paid

And what about Microsoft? Their security flaws in Windows had much worse consequences with viruses and spyware

The security breach happened on Sony's servers, operated by them. A security breach happening on your system is your responsibility regardless of who made the software being exploited. That's just how it works. You can't sue a lock manufacturer if it gets picked.

Too little too late. Anyone that's serious about using controllers on PC is already using Dualshock 4 (or even 3) on PC instead of fidgeting with batteries for xbox controllers.

Anyone that's "serious about using controllers on PC" are probably still using 360 pads, actually. That's what everyone has had for years and while the DS4 is better, I don't know of many people who upgraded to one yet.

This is obviously just a preliminary step that will lead into MS releasing official wireless controllers for PC in the next few months. They just decided to release the official drivers as soon as they were done while they're manufacturing the PC wireless adapter.

@freakin9: I was being specific to the "everything you do is owned by the company" type of clause many contracts have. Carmack likely had enough sway to negotiate that type of clause to be specific to office hours. Otherwise, there might be questions of ownership of some of the Armadillo Aerospace work as well.

"Everything you do that's gaming related"? Employee contracts these days are practically novels in size with a million conditions and caveats.

Playing this for a few ours. I am right now in Chapter 2. I must say that this phone system seems very limited. Also Is there actual a way to back of from your reply's to see the other options? It happens quite a bit that this was not the thing i wanted to ask in the end^^

Also are there any decisions though just a choice or are all decisions are made from these phone reply's?

Other than that I enjoy it so far even though faris is really annoying^^

All choices are handled through the phone. It's a neat system in concept but it's not executed very well, and you pretty much need a guide if you want to see all the game has to offer without getting headaches trying to figure out how.

This is really nice, thanks duder! Sorry to ask for even more, but it would be nice to see the recap articles that have stuff like the guest top 10 lists in them.

You can listen to it here: https://c418.bandcamp.com/album/minecraft-volume-beta

I listened to it all today and it's all quite excellent. It's very much in the same style as the peaceful piano music currently in the game but with a bit more variation. I feel like it's actually a fairly big improvement, C418 has gotten much better as a musician over the years. Track 16, Taswell, is a tribute to Ryan Davis and is one of my favorites of the album. None of it is implemented into the actual game yet but hopefully it happens soon.

Pretty exciting, but I wonder what this means for Walking Dead Season 2.

All I can think of now is that this will greatly impact how good Season 2 can be

Same. I really hope the guys at Telltale can pull of a good Season 2 of TWD. But I have a feeling that without Jake and Sean, it won't be nearly as compelling.

"This is a fantasy based on reality."

After watching that trailer, I am very curious what reality they're referring to, because it certainly isn't the one I'm familiar with.

It doesn't come off very well in this video because it's set in what appears to be an old European style city with gothic cathedrals and such, but the game is ostensibly set in a very modern style world with modern cities, complete with realistic looking apartment blocks, skyscrapers, roads, cars, business suits, etc. They're basically saying "What if we had Final Fantasy style magic and crystals in a modern Earth setting?" (not actually set on Earth)

@chiablo: This is not really true. They obviously know the person they're going with, know their price, and know the amount of time it would take themselves to do it. You'd be really surprised just how much game development work is contracted out. Almost every game developer big and small constantly contract out small jobs like this. It's a very regular thing and is actually done to keep costs down.
