Technically it was $2.2 Billion plus millions of shares worth $2 billion at the time. It's total worth would be dependant on when Lucas actually decides to sell those shares. The stock price of Disney at the time of the sale was $50. Now it is at $90 so those same shares are worth over $3.3 billion right now. » 9/15/14 1:47pm Today 1:47pm

They mean the same thing. Metroid and Castlevania were released in the same year. Actually there were 2 'Castlevania' games released that year. The one we know of as just Castlevania was not like Metroid but the other one was and at this point, there are more Castlevania titles that fit this model than Metroid games.… » 9/14/14 5:44pm Yesterday 5:44pm

There is nothing wrong with him. He simply doesn't have his head in the clouds. You are not being a realist. The question isn't about what you think you deserve or what you think of the people who do this but what you would expect. If I knocked out my wife out of sight from any camera or major media exposure, went… » 9/12/14 9:48pm Friday 9:48pm

People are already selling Minecraft crap through their servers. Lots of it, in fact. And people don't seem to have a problem buying those skin packs on the console versions from what I can tell. And there is no telling what they can push on to mobile users considering the amount of people who bought that version when… » 9/10/14 7:40am Wednesday 7:40am

Well, she did 'provoke' him but that doesn't justify any type retaliation on his part. If I spit on you and gave you a half-hearted slap across the face, I bet you would consider that provocation. Whether you take a swing at me or not would depend on how you handle yourself as a person in that situation. Seeing that… » 9/10/14 1:49am Wednesday 1:49am

Saying the game's success comes from the community has a different connotations when you step away from the PC space. The game has sold tens of millions of copies on platforms that don't have privately run servers or mods or anything like that. Millions of copies on mobile that people don't stream or put on Youtube.… » 9/09/14 9:34pm Tuesday 9:34pm

The Kindle E-readers are definitely not something I have seen that often in the hands of kids. What I have seen is Kindle Fire tablets being bought by parents partially for themselves but also to have something to distract their kids with when they don't want to actually acknowledge their existence for a short amount… » 9/09/14 1:37am 9/09/14 1:37am

Little off base. We know how many Dota 2 players there are (within the usual parameters used to measure these kind of things) because you can only play it through Steam and Steam statistics and Valve's own numbers have been very forthcoming. Riot knows how many players Dota 2 has and what they know is that LoL's… » 9/08/14 8:35pm 9/08/14 8:35pm

Same reaction here. I saw the video and all I was thinking was, "Yep. That is pretty much exactly how I thought it played out." I thought the 2 game suspension was way too lenient to begin with but I kind of accepted the fact that this is what everyone was going with. To see the reaction of ESPN and the NFL and the… » 9/08/14 4:36pm 9/08/14 4:36pm

The biggest argument is of the slippery slope variety. The thing is, this kind of issue isn't new. There isn't a slope out there with regard to this practice that we haven't slipped on already. In Dreamfall's specific case, there is no real issue. They already pay someone to make their music and they don't need this… » 9/05/14 9:16pm 9/05/14 9:16pm
