    Mass Effect Trilogy On Sale for $10 in GameStop Spring Sale

    Exact same for me. Will not install Origin. They might get my money when they drop that garbage.

    GoodBadFlicks Joins The Escapist

    MovieBob did not need replacing. Do love cult flicks though. Worse the better.

    Poll: CCP stakes White Wolf's Heart - World of canceled

    After seven or eight years without ever delivering anything substantial, this was a hopeless romance anyway. Move on.

    Escapist News Now: Even More PAX East 2014 Cosplay!

    That's hilarious that someone showed up as Powdered Toast Man. Not thought about that character in a decade or more.

    Jimquisition: The Adblock Episode

    I actually don't care about ads much. They're useful for filling empty space. With the caveat that, any animated advertisement is going to be banished from my sight immediately and never return. It's the scripts that bother me. What is all this? Which of these is responsible for serving up...

    Let's Watch Thor: The Dark World's New Trailer

    00:40 - Oh ffs, they dragged this garbage to Earth AGAIN. PASS.

    Half-Life 3 Won't Be At E3 2014, Says Valve

    Did I miss something here? Was Episode 3 a thing that happened? Who cares about HL3?! Release HL2 Episode 3!

    GOG, Origin, and GameFly Sales

    Accidentally added four more titles to my GoG library. Love GoG.

    Lucasarts Games that Deserve Another Shot

    For me, Dark Forces II was Lucas Art's finest. I still have it here somewhere. It contained one of the most bad-ass levels EVER, which was literally the crashing of the Sulon Star. The whole thing was chaos, like a mansion, twirling through the air, falling through windows and doors, running on...

    Microsoft Threatens Console Bans for Gears Pirates

    You people complaining about console bans... would you prefer jail? Microsoft is being lenient on pirates (because it would cost them too much to exact a full decree).

    Deep Silver Apologizes for Mutilated Dead Island Torso

    As a stand-alone retail item? No. As part of a multi-faceted collector's edition? Yes. It's definitely unique. It certainly beats the factory bent-up pewter Ordinator figurine I got with Morrowind, back in the day. If it were a male torso, I'd rather it be a plushie, so I could use it...

    Deep Silver Apologizes for Mutilated Dead Island Torso

    Guess I'm another of the select few, that don't understand the outrage. It's meat. So what. Is combining sex appeal with gore suddenly a taboo? If any of these make it to retail they'll be worth some money. Collector's item for sure. Seems like it was a good idea to me.

    Feeling Bad for Someone Makes You Less Smart

    Greg, quit thinking of game development as a 9-5 job; it isn't. It's contract work. You don't keep a roofer on your payroll for a few months after he's finished your new roof. If a problem arises, you call him in again, then he's off to some other contract. Actually, wouldn't it be nice if...

    Hotline Miami Developer Embraces Pirates

    I know you need to cite sources, but linking directly to a torrent of the game sort of promotes the piracy of it. Just saying. Isn't there a Warez policy?
