Kind of happy to hear others have had a similar experience - I bought a pair of enthusiast Sennheiser headphones like 10 years ago and they've never let me down. I've tried others (I think Philips, Sony, Koss, Steelseries to name a few...) but they always end up breaking in some way (like, loss of sound/cable failure etc). If I were to pick up a headset it would probably be in the Sennheiser "G4ME" series.
Can't say I know anything about Kotaku but some of the posts here have me worried they'll like put him on "top 5 cupcakes that look like Yoshi" duty or something. I'm sure his opinion pieces/editorials will find a good home there, and his writing will probably reach a bigger audience. Personally, I was more into his video stuff what with all the Spookin' and Spelunkin' and stuff.
Like many others I'm not exactly thrilled but it's always tough seeing someone leave the Bomb. Other than that I don't see the point of speculation or conspiracy brewing - it's bad enough that his own goodbye thread had to be locked. Wish him all the best at the new gig.
It's pretty much impossible for normal users, there are bids in the hundreds of thousands of gems... I can't even understand how someone can have that many.
The market was(is?) flooded with items everyone had but nobody wanted.
I'm not entirely sure, but I assume people just buy all the emoticons and backgrounds in the lowest price range (I think $0.01 - $0.03 is as low as it goes? But don't quote me on that) and then just turn them into gems.
If you buy 100 emoticons for $3, and each emoticon is worth 100 gems, you essentially traded $3 for 10k gems.
Tales from the Borderlands. I really don't like anything about Borderlands, but from what little that was shown during the pre-turkey day stream it actually looked kind of cool. Corporate intrigue in space? That sounds great. Would love a longer quick look of it.
Apart from that, I'd say Warlords of Draenor. But that one isn't showing up in results. I don't know if it's a good thing or a bad thing that one of the most enjoyable games this year is an expansion, priced almost as high as a full release, and not just any expansion but a well received one - for a 10 year old game.
are we talking with a controller or mouse and keys?
First of all I never play first person shooters with a controller, and I never invert the mouse so, normal I suppose.
I don't always play with a controller, but when I do I prefer to play inverted.
Same here actually. When and if I'm using a controller I have to invert. Otherwise I just end up staring at the floor or ceiling every time I try to walk around a corner. When I use mouse and keyboard I never invert though. I don't know why that is.
If I do continue to work in games it’ll be as an anonymous 1 of 1000 at some shitty corporation, not the most public figure of a single digit sized team.
Dude still can't just keep his snark in check, even in an 'apology' letter. All the while yesterday he was shitting on Humble for not getting as many sales as he would've if they were still on Steam. The guy just doesn't know to get out of his own way.
Yeah, that's... an unfortunate way to speak about future employers.
Also, he kind of couldn't have picked a worse time to "sarcastically joke" about killing a game developer.
