Attention! From Twitter:

What does this mean? Exactly what you think it does. People will have the opportunity to buy The Wonderful 101 at PAX before its official North American release date.

Doesn't need a caption, if people can read it. K thnx.

Rogue Legacy deserves it.

Unless Patrick knows something we don't that first sentence is mighty confusing. Someone needs to make a list of Patrick typo's, kind of like a Brad time to death in QL's we could have a Patrick time to typo.

In other news, I still can't get my head around what all the problem is here. They have made some pretty decent game over the last few years which seem to have sold quite well. Deux Ex and Tomb Raider have been among my faves of the last few years. I get that Square aren't doing so good but if someone could explain how releasing highly-regarded, good selling games is a strategy which isn't working I would love to hear it.

@patrickklepek Do you know of any good articles that go into a bit of depth about this whole affair? I would greatly appreciate a link if you know of any.

They have made some pretty decent games* I get that Square Enix is not doing so well*, but it someone might explain* how releasing highly regarded and good selling games; is a strategic failure which is not working. I would love to hear it.* I could have a wikipedia article in and of itself with your typo's and grammatical mistakes in less then a paragraph. Before you cite someone else's failures, count your own mistakes. Thanks for the read @patrickklepek.

Fuck's sake mate, calm down a just a touch I was merely having a bit a of fun. I think Patrick is capable of withstanding my poor attempts at humour, and if he doesn't want his typos to be a running joke, then maybe he should read his work before pressing SEND (just another joke, don't get tense)

As for typos I am merely some ignorant forum lurker hammering out my vitriol with my big hairy keyboard mashing hands. I give myself the right to misplace apostrophes, mizspelll words or even just go smsx,xx'[s;/sa,.a,áam,szmzxmjzk,zzxjk zn with my big fists. Last time I checked Patrick is a journalist. People actually sign in, or even pay money to read his writing.

And (yes I know its grammatically incorrect to start a sentence with and, but i've done it and it feels soooo good) I don't give a shit about his ever more thundering typos because most of the time he has something pretty interesting to say/report but when it gets to the point of subverting the entire meaning of the opening sentence of your article, I say its time to get a copy checker.

You're telling me to calm down while you made like a little internet rant.

No you go ahead. I'll wait.

This is one of those things that doesn't hit you. It isn't real. We all give our condolences but it hasn't really hit you until you think about the hours you spent watching videos, the days you spent listening to pod casts, or the tears you shed from all the jokes.

It won't sink in for a bit, but when it does, remember, most people want to be remembered for something to make a difference and to impact someone's life.

Ryan Davis did just that, he impacted many peoples life's, from unlabeled breast milk, to sitting on cakes, to making be a dick to interns funny ; he was a great source of humor and creativity.

Ryan Davis, know you made an impact on more people's life then you can count, and that you will be remembered not for your vices, but for your virtues. I myself will never forget your humor, your inspiration, and your character.

Truly rest in peace, and to everyone affected, which is the world, I don't think my sympathy can be enough, but you shall have it.

Into the night fair child of the earth, and to the earth you return.

I'll repeat what I said on another post here so it can be said.

Microsoft never "insulted" it's customers. It tried something new, and unlike all the comparisons to Steam when it launched, it didn't stick to it's guns. If Microsoft said the 24 hour check in is to combat piracy and help game manufacturers and it's only for online play", or better verbiage, not as many people would backlash. All Microsoft did was implement the cloud, which is coming, whether people like it or not, and try to push it. Essentially M+ pulled a Qwikster, the thing that nearly bankrupt Netflix because they wanted to push online, but Netflix had to pull out. Steam on the other hand spent years sticking to their policies and constantly changing and providing feedback, but never compromising on it's infrastructure that it set to create. Most companies will not put in that effort to get the huge reward. Which is why Steam is one of the most used gaming services around, and Sony forced Microsoft's hand. I'll get both consoles, just not at launch.

He will be missed. Though he REALLY needed a haircut.
