That would certainly make me consider a PS4.
My PS2, while still working, is elderly at this point.

Something tells me I might get nervous booting up FFX-2 HD on the PS3.  The PS2 one was playing when my system was on the fritz (disc errors are kinda haunting, aren't they?).

So for those of you who missed this 2-3 years ago, here's your second chance.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Creator of Flappy Bird takes the app down. Says he can't cope with it anymore.

Also, first world problems

I can only imagine how much he hated the attention (if that's what it was) was for such a desperate move to delete his own game (and the irony that this is just as news-worthy as creating a popular game).

Definitely don't approve of all the people shouting their "fuck you"s, but quite frankly I can't imagine the rationale for taking the game down either (but I'm sure it's justified).

This really gets me down. I hate how intensely angry people can get (especially on the internet) over something that really shouldn't be a big deal. Sure, I can understand some disappointment, but it's his game, he can do what he likes. Those responses make me see why he might have wanted to withdraw in the first place.

If someone told me tomorrow that (somehow) I could never play Ocarina of Time ever again (which is my all-time favourite game), I still wouldn't get as worked up as these people are. I just don't get it.

I don't blame him for taking it down. Humanity doesn't deserve it. :P

Oh EA, you so EA
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2014-02-06-dungeon-keeper-androids-rating-system-filters-out-1-4-star-reviews

TL;DR
1-4 star rating sends an email to EA
5 star rating goes to Google Play store rating

Without cheating, only 5 star rating can be sent to Google Play store.

1. Take a popular game that works well on mobile platforms.
2. Create your own version using birds.
3. $$$$

All it says is that there will be a Nintendo Direct on the 14th that will focus on software that will be released in Spring.

Every time I see "Soraya Saga" I have to change my pants.
The gameplay footage required a mop.
