Nintendo and Humble Inc have partnered to bring us the Humble Nindie Bundle.  Its a Humble Bundle full of indie games for the Wii U and the 3DS.  This isn't just the first time you've been able to buy Nintendo games in a Humble Bundle, this is the first time you've been able to buy ANY console platform games in a Humble Bundle.  Brave new world!

Is +Nintendo... branching out from their respective norms? 

XK-class end-of-the-world scenario detected!

Someone want to give me roughly $1,100 and plane tickets to South Korea so I can bring one of these back with me?

So Tony Hawk is coming back.  The new (12th or 13th?) game in the franchise is going to be called Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5, because they're going back to basics and disowning all the games that came after Pro Skater 4.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater has been dead long enough to cash in on nostalgia with an ill fated comeback attempt.

THAT makes me feel old

Holy shit, do we really need this? Well...

There better be a "shitty nostalgic graphics mode" or this whole project will be a waste.

Migraine to end all migraines. The stress and agitation and sleep deprivation is catching up with me.

So we've had, Konami underperforming for a long time. P.T. is gone and Silent Hills has been scrapped. Metal Gear is ending. Kojima and now Igarashi are out on their own and competing with papa Konami. And now we get this announcement that Konami is abandoning the AAA games publishing space for the mobile games publishing space. One question. Is this a last ditch effort to save the company, or has this pivot been the plan for a long time now? What if all the great developers leaving isn't the cause of Konami pivoting toward mobile, what if Konami pivoting toward mobile is the cause of all the talent jumping ship?

Okay, I can understand +Konami bailing on AAA games, because they're really damn expensive. MGS4 had a reported $50,000,000 budget. Um, that's Hollywood money.

But the way they've handled this transition (or whatever is going on) is going to leave a nasty taste in gamer's mouth for years to come.

Verizon is buying AOL.

Remember the last time Verizon bought a tech site, and censored articles and discussion of net neutrality and government spying?

Yeah, I'd say TechCrunch and Engadget are done with, possessing credibility.

Resident Evil 0 is joining the original this year with an HD Remaster on PS4 / PS3 / XB1 / 360 / PC.   I'm looking forward to it, but I'm beginning to wonder if 2 and 3 are ever going to be meaningfully reworked... like, ever...

I wonder, at what point does Capcom demake the RE franchise for old consoles like the Atari 2600 or Sega Master Drive?

Now that Nintendo is profitable again Konami is the new, fascinating train wreak of the video game industry that we all gather around and watch and speculate on the death of.

Remember when 'Just Trolling' used to be artful and funny, before it just became a defense that gamergaters and the mentally ill used for justifying doxing and rape threats? This guy does. Here's to you, JCubs79.

Got my laptop back.  And I still have this little stopgap of a Windows tablet... Named my derpy little Windows tablet Laevateinn.  (my phone and watch are already Mjolnir and Jarngriepr and the Kindle is Gungnir and the laptop is Yggdrasil).   Got them talking to each other with the Microsoft  modern UI Remote Desktop app.   Figured out by trial and error which things you want syncing and which things you need to turn off syncing for.  Stuff is good now. This is a minority opinion but I rather like Windows 8.1 on both form factors. It definitely shines on a tablet though.

Me: "The internet said your methods were... unsound."
Konami: "Are my methods unsound?"
Me: "I don't see any method at all, sir."

Nintendo's still a huge dick about stuff, but right now their future is so much brighter than Konami's. All Konami's genius auteurs have left then and they don't have any franchise left they haven't buried.

Oh they left the sound system.  Stole all the cables and adapters though.
