Well they sure know how to make the least use out of YouTube video compression.

And in other news- Microsoft appears to be buying Minecraft making Mojang for apparently 2 billion bucks.

Maybe Microsoft will do something about those outdated blocky graphics now. (Kidding!)

You joke, but that's the reason I absolutely can't stand that game. I'm fine with 8bit and all that, but I think Minecraft is UGLY.

It seems like the Koopalings will be in Smash Bros.

Like all of them as one playable or a few of them?  I can't imagine all would be different playable characters.

Bowser Junior is in it, but I believe his colour variations are the Koopalings.

So Steam, along with the other changes in the recent patch, added a music player.


It the "Oh, that's nice" category, it looks like Steam automatically added all the soundtracks that I didn't realize that I've bought to my library.

I had high hopes for the player. It's not very good at the moment. The only benefit to using it over something like Foobar is being able to switch tracks while in a game. Two brain cells and an understanding of hot keys could help you do that in any music player though.

Sakurai: In the 3DS version, your fighter gets outlined by your team color. So, how does this work in the Wii U version? Check out this screenshot. In this picture, the outlines may seem faint, but the color intensity is consistent. This means that the farther away and smaller your fighter appears on the screen, the clearer the colors will look.

Disney just dropped about 20 games onto Steam. I mention this as Pure and Split/Second are two of them. Pure is a fairly awesome racer that plays rather like SSX, but with off road bikes. And Split /Second is a racing game where parts of the racetrack will explode on you and form new raceways. Sadly, they're both a little pricey at $20, but if you see them on a sale, pick them up.


Oh, and Smash for Wii U will be on November 21. Aussies? You get it two weeks later.

Split/Second got old to me fairly quickly.  I kind of uses up its fast and then its left an uninspired racer.

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.
