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

Also, first world problems


Wow that is just... This makes me want to delete my FB and instagram accounts, seriously.  Privacy is a luxury now.

Too bad they will always retain that sweet delicious information of yours.

(Also, I assume the FB is for Flappy Birds and not Facebook.)

Shining games continuing to not be Shining Force games (also, the sky is blue, the grass is green, and this game will never leave Japan).

In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Guess which franchise is back from the dea-oh. Nevermind.

(Actually, that trailer doesn't make it seem too bad, but when Squeenix and Free-to-play are used in the same sentence, that's when I know to pretty much disregard.)

You should be skeptical when free-to-play is in any sentence.  I believe the model can work, but it's extremely rare.

The PS4 is going up by $50
Controllers are going up by $5
Games are going up by $10

Nintendo games are going up by $5 (It appears to be both Wii-U and 3DS)

MS Third party games are going up by $10

All, magically, at the same time.

Collusion and price fixing? No, couldn't be! That would be dishonest!
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

This only for Canada though, and it's because the Canadian dollar is depreciating against the US dollar.  I wouldn't say it's price fixing since they're just trying to keep it the same price for both countries and prevent people in the US from importing a PS4 from Canada (seems to be $360 at the current exchange rate).

Being just for Canada doesn't make it better. Singling us out actually makes it worse.

And the whole dollar value thing is a load of fucking horseshit.

The dollar was at a *worse* level than this when the PS2 came out and there was no price hike then, so to use that as an excuse doesn't hold water.

This seems like borderline racism.

Importing wasn't as widespread as it was in the PS2 days.  Online shopping and shipping usage have increased tenfold since then, so I would consider that a poor comparison.  I know it feels unfair, but what can you do?

I don't understand what importing and online shipping have to do with this.

It doesn't *feel* unfair, it *is* unfair.

As for what I can do? Stick with retro gaming. Other than the 3DS, I am officially done with modern gaming.

Fuck all three of them.

It's going to be Dolphin, DC and PS1/2 emulators from here on out + PS3 and 3DS.

Actually, raising the prices in Canada only will make it so that people buy on the Internet, in the US, from a state with no sales tax =/
