The torture device is a rack, which stretches people out.. while he talks about stretch goals.. Genius!

Axiom Verge just proved that a Metroid returning to its roots would be, and is, awesome.

Harness Hype. Sell speculation. Embrace cynicism once games are actually released.

Our first Super Show is an original IP we’ve developed in collaboration with a world-class creative partner who’s just as excited about the format as we are. Together we’ve created a world where we can really demonstrate the power of this new format and leverage the toolkit it brings to us as storytellers, much like we’ve done in the [game-only] space.

Who is the mysterious world-class creative partner? Begin your speculations and rumors now.

Each Super Show episode [the interactive game and the scripted episode] will be released as a package designed so that you can consume the interactive portion or watch the scripted show portion in any order you’d like. For instance, if you play the interactive episode first, certain elements of the scripted episode portion will be tailored to reflect some choices made in your interactive play through. If you watch the show before playing, some elements in the interactive portions may be presented differently than if you played first.

That's probably the most interesting aspect so far, it implies a pretty big narrative disconnect between the scripted and the interactive parts.

Just Cause's vehicles, stunts, grapple and paragliding + Red Faction's weapons and destructibility.

Normally Archive.org does stuff like this and very few people notice, this time is different, hopefully DMCA requests don't ruin it.

They might just be trying to distance themselves from the GTA:V PC release date, Jan 27th, which is going to stomp all over everything around it.

"We expect Steam customers to get a price for the Early Access game no higher than they are offered on any other service or website. Please make sure that’s the case."

I wonder if Valve will enforce this by running sales on a developer's game if they find them selling it for cheaper.

I thought it might actually be fun to do the companion app. It's not. It's simply tedious. Thankfully, the stuff in those chests is also lame and completely unnecessary. In the end the chests are simply a nuisance.

I wonder if they are going to market this on HBO itself in any way.
