"There’s been a lot of debate over whether or not EA’s premium demos were part of a calculated test-run for a more nefarious future for vertical slices released to the public, or if it was just a gosh-darn honest mistake. Well, there’s some pretty good reasons why a large majority of core gamers saw the news and reacted the way they did."
"Kingdoms of Amalur… the name sounded kind of generic but the execution was supposedly pretty good. It’s one of the dozens of games in my back catalog of titles I’ll likely get around to playing after my head is full of gray hairs and flying cars become the standard for getting around town. This story isn’t about Kingdom of Amalur, though. It’s about the company that was granted $75 million to make the game"
"Since the initial unveiling of the Oculus Rift hardware over two years ago there’s been much talk about the potential for software distribution on the device. Many have suggested that Steam is a perfect portal for Oculus VR to utilise while others insist that the company must create it’s own virtual storefront. Oculus VR themselves have been relatively tight-lipped on the subject, only hinting that the latter is an obvious path to follow. Following a well received showcase at this month’s Ele..."

"I recently had a bit of an exchange with someone over social media about The Walking Dead: Season Two’s episode release schedule. I originally asked developer Telltale Games if they can please release Episode 4 a month after Episode 3′s release, because I felt the rollout was taking a bit long.
I brought this up because the first episode of Season Two came out last December 17, 2013. At the time of that comment, it was already the second week of May 2014 and Episode 3 was just about to be ..."
""Raven Software is one of those companies that has probably made a game you love even though you might not recognize their name. When all their games are listed out it's funny just how many well-loved cult classics have come out of one studio. Soldier of Fortune, Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force, Star Wars: Jedi Knight II - Jedi Outcast, Star Wars Jedi Knight - Jedi Academy, and X-Men Legends I & II are all from Raven Software. From comic book games to movie games to their own IP, Raven has p..."
Daav from NoobFeed asks some questions to Erik Schreuder, CEO of Iceberg Interactive. The company celebrates five years of existence. It has since then grown from a point-and-click publisher to a sizable player in the 4X strategy market on Steam. That gives them some experience to talk about.
Today Nintendo have announced a third annual loss. Since it's release, the Wii-U console has sold around just 6.17 million units and as little as two and a half million in the last year. These figures are staggering when compared to the 7 million Playstation 4 units that Sony have shifted since it's release just before the holiday season. There are some positives for Nintendo with 3DS sales creeping up to around 44 million in total since it's release. With no new console being announced at th...
