So if your game hits the 250k cap, it has to be Ouya exclusive for 2 whole years?

There were a few moments in Season 1 where I had to put down the controller, and just take a breather. Nothing impacted me quite like that in 400 Days. I thought Vince's episode was weak, and boring. Shel and Russel's were both good, but again not really up to the standards of season 1. Wyatt and Bonnie's left me a little dissapointed. I feel like 400 days is designed to test a few new gameplay ideas, like when you pull the thing out of the ground during Bonnie's story and you have to hold down a button, and the car chase sequence during Wyatt's. If I were to rank it with the Season 1 episodes...
- Episode 3
- Episode 2
- Episode 5
- Episode 1
- Episode 4
- 400 Days
Also worth noting that 400 Days ran substantially smoother on my PC, so maybe they optimized it better then the rest of season 1.
There were too many of similar characters in Brawl. Do we really need Fox, Falco AND Wolf? Link AND Toon Link? Sure they all technically played differently, but I would much rather see a much more diverse lineup, which I why think The Villager is awesome. Also, fuck Wario. Cut him. Please.
@bprjctx: Right but the people complaining on the internet are a small fraction of who will end up buying the console, whether always online or not.
Today, news site Ars Technica quotes the turnabout in what they say is an e-mail sent by Microsoft officials to all internal Xbox employees. The e-mail states that the next Xbox will let people play games without connecting to the web, despite the rumors that have been swirling over the past few months that Microsoft's new console will follow in the footsteps of games likeSimCity and Diablo III, requiring an Internet connection to function.
"Durango is designed to deliver the future of entertainment while engineered to be tolerant of today's Internet," the memo reportedly says. "There are a number of scenarios that our users expect to work without an Internet connection, and those should 'just work' regardless of their current connection status. Those include, but are not limited to: playing a Blu-ray disc, watching live TV, and yes playing a single player game."
So, i guess that...
The internet wins again!!!
Personally, i think this would never fly, and if the internet hadn't made themselves heard, Microsoft would be shooting themselves in the foot on launch day.
Anyway, what do you guys think about these news?
Microsoft doesn't give two shits what the internet thinks. All that matters is their bottom line.
Also: The Homepage currently looks like this:
So this is what I perceive the site as:
Vinny/Drew - Video Content, Producers, etc.
Brad - Reviews, Reviews, Reviews
Alex - Regurgitate press releases, upload trailers
Patrick - Deeper stories focusing on video game culture
Jeff - Editor in Chief, basically meetings and planning
Ryan - Records the podcast on Monday, posts it on Tuesday. I seriously don't know what else Ryan does during the week, but whatever.
The site needs more content, I don't think 4-5 quick looks a week, 1-2 in depth features and a review is enough content a week. TNT is cool and all, but it takes maybe half of a day to set up and do? The Bombcast is a three hour listen, which is almost always great, but outside of that where is the original content? No Endurance Run, No TANG, nothing even of the sort recently. I get that they're trying to launch the re-design, and that's fine but nothing is really happening around here. I want more live quick looks, I want more features like what Screened used to do. To be honest, the quick looks that I watch most often are for games that I've never even heard of. Bring back Radio Dave, bring back Flight Club, bring back Random PC Game. All of the old features have disappeared completely.
