    Deus Ex: Human Revolution Director's Cut Goes Multi-Platform

    "After our Director's Cut announcement we received an overwhelming response from the community asking us to bring this ultimate edition of Human Revolution to other platforms" also translates to "After our Director's Cut announcement we perceived an overwhelming silence from the community...

    Escapist Podcast: 094: Double Fine Kickstarter & E3 Judge's Week

    Concerning the DF Kickstarter, most people seem to forget or ignore that DF has about 60 people working for them and since Brütal Legend, they kept saying that they prefer to work on 2-3 smaller projects at a time now. Rather than working on one big project. Broken Age (DFAdventure) currently...

    New Portal 2 DLC Uses PS Move

    Really looking forward to this and the general Move patch. I'm pretty sure that my wife will have an easier time with the Move than with the standard controller. Analog sticks are certainly not optimal to orientate yourself in a 3D world, if you were not raised with them. Kudos to Valve there

    LoadingReadyRun: Mustache You a Question

    If I was paying attention at the right moment on the LRR Magic Twitch Channel, they mentioned that it not only a "poster", but an actual (as in "original") uncut sheet of magic cards given out by Wizards for the DB auction.

    uhhh... I can't get that out of my head when someone writes it - sorry. But this has no diminishing effect on the great video :)

    Escapist Podcast: 025: Are Modern RPGs Ruining the Genre?

    If I recall correctly, the podcast is not really on iTunes, but instead it uses the RSS feed to download the latest episode. That would also explain why you are not seeing the older episodes as a download option. I bet that there was a meeting at Bioware where a couple of designers sat...

    Escapist Podcast: 025: Are Modern RPGs Ruining the Genre?

    What happened to the end of the podcast? Censorship on Susan? Did SOPA kick in preemptively? Just joking, but the end seemed rather abrupt.

    Why I Am Patient With The VGAs

    She had to do a couple of real-life games that were partially adapted from video games (i.e. Fruit Ninja with a real katana). It's nothing horrible per se, but it didn't really fit into the context of an award show, even if they did it to raise money for Child's Play. The whole thing just was...

    Why I Am Patient With The VGAs

    While I agree with everything you said, the sad state of affairs would be that this medium even lacks a decent amount of critics. We've got a lot of reviewers who tend to write the shopping guides for us, but when was the last time you saw someone dissect the gameplay systems, artistry or sound...

    The New Shiny Escapist

    It took some time to sit down for feedback, but now's the chance and I can't get around that the whole site just got a lot more impractical to me. I usually come here to read feature articles and watch the videos. Before the change, I could see all new additions on the front page in...

    Extra Punctuation: Yahtzee Could Have Written Duke Nukem Forever

    I wonder how one could come to the conclusion that inFamous ends after the 2nd part. The last scene of the good ending pretty much hints at a sequel with it's "lightning question mark". Without spoiling too much, I'd say that if it just were a flash of lightning, I might see the argument, but it...

    Sony CEO Adamantly Defends Openness On PSN Attack

    A week is pretty quick from my work experience and Mr. Stringer is correct that most companies don't even report the intrusion at all if possible to avoid the bad press. What most people don't see right away is the fact that a "potential breach" looks pretty similar to a simple hardware or...

    Rumor: Amazon Servers Aided PSN Attack

    Botnets are primarily used for four different kinds of tasks: - spam mails - dDOS Attacks - proxy services - distributed hashtable cracking dDOS and spam are the most prominent uses and the Amazon service was most likely used for simple traffic generation to overload PSN servers. The...

    Fox News Blogger Continues Bulletstorm Attack

    You are still able to purchase said games at stores or by importing them. That is actually what most of us do and did do in the past (especially for movies with cringe-worthy translations). To buy them in stores, you've got to ask them to order it specifically and sometimes they actually have a...

    Fox News Blogger Continues Bulletstorm Attack

    As a German, a small tear of appreciation was cried in favor of EA while reading this article. Really hope that they don't get discouraged and stay vocal about treating games like books and movies. There are two slight details missing, however. The USK doesn't censor games, the...
