It can't be a monopoly when there are pleny of other options.

The problem here is that the other options currently suck...

It's a monopoly if you control over 50% of the market.

I can't find anywhere that says that. The dictionary says that it's "The exclusive control of a commodity or service", though I do know that different governments define it differently. I've tried reading the US anti-trust laws before and even the Quick notes were confusing as hell...

So...source plz?

Google's $1B purchase of Twitch confirmed joins YouTube for new video empire -- VB / GamesBeat

"Google has signed a deal to buy game-livestreaming firm Twitch for $1 billion, confirmed sources familiar with the matter."

Wait...yup, there went my heart...

I mean, I don't watch streams a lot, but Twitch is...Twitch. It's a pretty big thing, and the last couple of big things Google got they didn't do so well with. Definitely not looking forward to this...

Am I the only one confused as to how "Trails of Blue" is incorrect grammar? I mean, I get how "Trails of Zero" doesn't work ("Zero's Trail," maybe?), but Trails of Blue sounds perfectly fine to me. Maybe "The Blue Trail" would be even more correct, but Trails of Blue conveys the exact same idea, while sounding slightly more poetic, which makes it work better as a title.

He might have a laptop. That would make a huge difference.

Trying to play Baldur's Gate, but I'm getting sooo bored, and I'm still in the prologue. I'm not even sure what it is that's making it so boring? Walking speed, maybe? The whole game just feels rediculously slow and dull, at least at this point. I guess I wouldn't be so impatient if it didn't take me 20 minutes just to make a character, only to do jack squat for the next 6 hours...

Speaking of policy: The rules also state that policing the forums is up to the moderators/admins and no one else. Perhaps it's best if we just leave this matter up to the mods (you know, by hitting the report button), as Maxximum has been trying to say, and move on? After all, even negative attention could be enough to give the guy more views than he deserves...

You know, it's funny. I never liked Baldur's Gate, at least not when I was younger. In fact, I don't think I really liked any old CRPG except for Planescape: Torment. Yet I'm really interested in Divinity: Original Sin, as well as a lot of other Retro RPGs. Not because they're using old ideas, but because of what they're doing with them. I like the idea of a Turn-Based game where you need to utitilize your environment and experiment with your skills. I like the idea of a Turn-Based Post-apocalyptic game like Wastelands 2. I like the idea of dynamic stories in Pillars of Eternity. It's not because they're old ideas, but because of what they're doing to revitalize these old ideas. I can say this about a lot of Retro games, actually. It's not really because of nostalgia that I'm interested in them, but because I think they'll be good games in general.

I remember the first time I fought the Godwin. Chased it halfway around the map only to get clobbered. Was level 30, too...wasn't able to beat it until I was 33, I think...

Anyways, I played a little Tge Dark Spire and completed the first two quests. Good times, this game is still as fun as I remember.

Also bought and played some Crystalis for the NES. For an old action-RPG, it holds up remarkably well (...graphical hiccups aside...). Made it through the first dungeon without much trouble, at least.

EDIT:

Now I'm playing through RealMyst. This game is surprisingly engrossing. I never expected to be hit with real puzzles, but I've actually had to think and the answers make sense most of the time thus far...
10  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 2014 Kickstarter, Steam Greenlight, etc. thread. What's piqued your interest? on: July 17, 2014, 05:57:06 PM
I don't feel like looking for the Wastelands 2 thread just yet, but I'll say that I read through PaleRobbie's preview of it, and I'm actually quite astonished. That was another one I was kinda skeptical on, but it sounds like they really might deliver. I never played the original Wastelands (sounds too old school for me. I can barely hold my own in the original Fallout), but on its own it seems like it'd be a pretty fun and interesting game.

Hm, never used that site before. Their layout doesn't seem obnoxious, the reader is nice and clean, selection seems nice...I could get used to this. Only problem is its search - it needs titles to be typed in the right order, despite it supposedly looking for titles with those words in it...but that shouldn't be too difficult to deal with. Thanks, Kevuda.

Is there a better fan translation out there?  Right now, there isn't any legit English language publications of the manga or anime.  When there is, I sure as hell will plunk my money down because the series speaks to me. 

The anime is on Crunchyroll if you're in the US. But yeah, I'm not sure what's wrong with Mangahere for a non-licensed manga...? Unless there's a better translation, but usually everyone just uses the same scans...

On my last day in Lightning Returns. I'm horrible with time management, but I completed my main quests so I shouldn't be seeing the game over screen when I run out of time, haha. Still playing Mario Kart 8 here and there with wife and friends. I also just started up Shovel Knight for Wii U. Holy crap, I forgot how hard old school side scrolling games are. I grew up with Mega Man, but I always seemed to hand over the Nintendo controller when I fell off a ledge to my older brother who made the game look easy, haha. I love the cheesy dialog and 8bit music score of Shovel Knight. Good times!

Ironically Mega Man was the only game I had growing up that I was actually better at than my bro. :P Shovel Knight can definitely be hard sometimes, though, even early on.

Space Beer!

Aw, I read that wrong and thought it was a Space Bear.

(Or this Space Bear)
(This is just cute)

Wait, when did DualShockers stop being a Playstation-only site? EDIT: ...or was it ever? I seriously never really paid much attention to them, just kinda figured by the name...
