In Soviet Russia, TV watches you?

No longer just theoretical, it actually phones home when you change channels.

Disney's moving fast on their interactive Star Wars licensing and I have to admit I like the direction.

Nimblebit has made some very entertaining light freemium simulation-y games for iOS.  So why NOT Star Wars-ify them?

"Star Control" bought by Stardock in the ATARI fire sale.  I couldn't have picked a better company for it to go to.  Can't wait to see what they do with the license. #stardock

In case anyone is wondering where the "Steam Trading Card" metagame came from, here is a repost of the first post from Valve's in-house economist.

He hasn't posted about it yet on the Valve Economics blog, but he is almost certainly the principal architect.

Between Cryptozoic's "HEX", Mojang's "Scrolls", Activision Blizzard's "Hearthfire", and even Ubisoft's "Duel of Champions" this year, there is one hell of a land rush going on in the mobile CCG/MMO space.

This genre is likely to replace the MOBA (multiplayer online battle arena)  as the game publisher fad du jour over the next two years.

I can see why the cast might be excited by the possibility of re-uniting for some new movies.  Looks like they had a lot of fun the first time around.

Brilliant marketing move and pre-emptive strike on piracy of their "game development simulator game".

The comments from pirates re: losing the game via piracy are priceless.

Knowing GW it will likely either be a $30 game or loaded with IAP, but I can't deny that it's cool they are making it.

That's some pretty serious reviewer love for XCOM.  Lots of emphasis on "maintaining" and "updating" what made the original so great.  Expectations are high.
