    Tim Schafer Raises $1.3 Million - Update Again

    One million dollars in a day and a half for a medium sized studio for a game from a genre that is decidedly dead in the eyes of publishers. That blows my mind. I can't help but wonder what Activision and EA think of this. Seriously, those two could make serious bank on just the promise of a...

    Most pleasing game and most disappointing game this gen

    Funny you mention this. Brütal Legend really was designed and programmed with the multiplayer first and then the single-player.

    A question on 3DS games

    Poll: Is Half Life 2: Episode 3 / Half Life 3 the new Duke Nukem Forever?

    I just realized something. Valve never really did announce Episode 3 or any Half-Life game, have they? In all honesty (and despite my love of the first two games (not so much the expansion packs and episodes)) I've kinda forgotten about episode 3/HL3. Maybe that's a good thing.
