One day, I’ll be getting an Xbox One. But not for quite a while.
My 400th post. This is less a retrospective than a contemplation of what comes next.
Marvel Agent of SHIELD underperforms on numerous levels and is also oddly against the kind of narrative usually seen in Marvel comics. Here, the dark suited government agents who want to control superhumans are allegedly the good guys.
Some old City of Heroes clients (from beta 2004) that I’ve made available on Dropbox for interested parties.
Run That Town has something to say about governments that it probably didn’t intend to say.
City of Titans has launched its Kickstarter and has been fully funded. Although it offers an attractive dream of brining City of Heroes back, it isn’t going to get anywhere near what it is promising.
I said previously that if Valve wants to move PC gamers to the couch, they’d need to give them a controller that could replace keyboard and mouse. That’s what Valve announced on Friday.
Both WildStar and The Elder Scrolls Online have announced they are launching with subscription models. Those who don’t learn from multiple past failures are doomed to repeat it.
A link to the Metacritic data I analysed a while back.
In going with a new operating system (OS) and its own licenced pseudo-PCs, Valve seems to be fighting an old batter rather than looking ahead.
