What Lucky Frame's Gentlemen! Can Teach Us About Piracy And Game Development

Today, I'm going to explore something a lot of pirates don't seem aware of - the marked impact piracy can actually have on developers, particularly if they're independent. Sit back, ladies and gents, and let me tell you the long, sad tale of Gentlemen!

There'll also be some stuff in there for all you developers, as well. Sit tight. 

Roblox CEO David Baszucki Discusses His Organization's Success And Future

Since 2012, ROBLOX - the world's largest creative online community - has experienced positively explosive growth. In the past six months alone, it's generated over 13.4 billion page-views and engaged users for 339 million hours. It shows no signs of stopping.

On Friday, I took the chance to have a brief sitdown with the organization's CEO, David Baszucki. Here's what he had to say. 

Why Razer Synapse 2.0 Still Isn't Worth The Effort

I make no secret of the fact that I'm a huge fan of Razer and all its products. They make some of the best gaming peripherals currently on the market, and I absolutely love my mouse and keyboard. Even so, there's one nagging little elephant in the room I don't much care for: it's called Razer Synapse.

KIXEYE Australia Launches VEGA Conflict, a new browser-based MMORTS

Earlier this month, KIXEYE launched Vega Conflict, a new, open-world (or rather, open-galaxy) browser-based sci-fi RTS. I had the opportunity to sit down with some of the fine folks from KIXEYE's Australia studio for an interview about the studio, the game, and the future.

The Giant Coffee Table Touchscreen Computer Costs A Whopping $7,000

If you're a tech geek with a penchant for waving around how much money you've got, have I ever found the product for you: it's a fully-functional, 32'' touchscreen computer built directly into the surface of a coffee table. It's also better than some people's desktops.

Microsoft Details Plans For Independent Developers On The Xbox One

Among the many other announcements dropped by Microsoft at this year's Gamescom 2013, the Richmond-based studio detailed its plans for the Xbox One's Independent Games Program. It's called ID@Xbox, and it's going to eventually culminate with development kit capability for every Xbox One.

Why The Law And The Internet Need To Find Common Ground

We're living in somewhat curious times. See, the birth of the Internet has established something Marshall McLuhan termed "The Global Village." We're closer - and more connected - than we've ever been before. Unfortunately...the law hasn't really kept up with any of that. As a result, we've entered into a strange sort of limbo, where everything seems to be a gray area, and no one's quite certain what law to apply where. This needs to change.  

Could Review Scores Manipulate Your Opinion Of Games?

You're pretty stoked for that new game you've been waiting for, aren't you? You've read every preview and news piece. You've tracked down every scrap of information you can. Everybody online is talking about how awesome the game is going to be. Those who've played it go on about how awesome it is.The more you hear, the more excited you become.

I've got bad news for you - your opinion might not be entirely your own. 

Gone Home Will Grab Your Attention Without Using Guns

The games industry has something of a problem expressing itself without using violence in some way, shape, or form. Not even narrative masterpieces like TellTale's Walking Dead and 2K's Bioshock Infinite stand apart from this trend. That doesn't mean it's impossible to tell a good story without violence, though.

The Fullbright Company has certainly managed with Gone Home. 

Add Some (Expensive) Class To Your Office With Empire Steampunk Speakers

I've always enjoyed the visual style of Steampunk. There's just something about the combination of elegance and artifice that draws me in. You can all understand, then, why I'm positively enchanted by Airhammer Industries' speakers. Unfortunately, they just so happen to cost over 12 grand.
