Are they shrooms? Pseudo-shrooms? Wearing shroom hats? "That's one of the great mysteries of the Mario universe"

It's stuff like this that makes me love Nintendo. That's almost as good as Iwata's quote about Splatoon from the last Nintendo Direct: "Squid vs. Octopus: nature's epic battle for supremacy"

<< LINK REMOVED >> Really? Most indies at this point launch simultaneously on Steam and GoG. There's still a few reticent devs, but even holdouts like Mark of the Ninja and Terraria are up at this point.

@chrisb2313 As a platform, I like it better than Steam. Installers are simple and games always work; forums are full of helpful and awesome users; staff are upfront and will actually answer you if you have a problem / question; the website itself is much better organized and easier to navigate; they do great sales and free game giveaways (in 1 year I got 10 free games including Torchlight, the O.G. Fallouts, and Dungeon Keeper) and of course, nothing requires any software running in the background. Everything's DRM free.

The only thing holding it back is the comparatively small library (they wouldn't budge on the DRM free thing, and many publishers refuse to release on their store because we'd all pirate it or something (tht means almost no new AAA games, though apparently that attitude is starting to change). That said, most indies come to the platform, and they still have the best library of classic PC games. Also, given how much of a clusterfuck Greenlight has been on Steam, I find it much easier to navigate sales and new releases on GoG.

Basically, at this point I use Steam only when something I want isn't releasing on GoG, and isn't likely to in the near future. They both have their uses, but if publishers would give up their DRM obsession I'd likely switch entirely to GoG.

<< LINK REMOVED >> That actually makes him pretty reliable, in a sense. Just hedge your bets on the exact opposite of whatever he's saying this month, and you're good to go.

<< LINK REMOVED >> "You'll get what we give you and be happy about it, or we can find someone else". That's pretty much been the managerial mantra of graduates coming out of commerce and business schools for the last few decades. It's doubly disturbing that high levels of unemployment help to prop up this sort of behaviour by creating a 'supply and demand' economy in the labour force (if you won't accept our shit terms, here's some other poor desperate sod who will) - unemployment which is exacerbated by these same suits, concluding that 'why pay two workers for 80 hours when we can just bully 1 into working unpaid overtime, and to work twice as hard'. It's a self-perpetuating cycle.
