Can't find the mobile gaming thread (I'm sure there was one) but I've been playing Part-Time UFO on my iPhone and it's great. It's a HAL Laboratory game, the story summary :lol:

A UFO ARRIVES ON EARTH,
READY TO HELP THE PLANET'S CITIZENS
WITH ITS HANDY EXTENDABLE CLAW!

I've only just discovered that the best-selling videogame on Xbox 360 is Kinect Adventures! :shock: . 24 million copies; miles ahead of the 17-odd million that GTA V reached.

Just how did Kinect sell so well when it seems to have been pretty-much universally derided?

Wii mania meant it sold to non gamers in huge numbers, they played it for 10 minutes and then moved on. This is why Kinect 2.0 was always doomed to fail, the casuals who had picked up a Kinect had moved on to phone games and had no interest in coming back.

I remember even PlayStation Move doing really well too, it's easy to forget just how much momentum there was behind motion controls in casual games at the time.

Honestly, for what it was Kinect could be silly fun in the right setting. I actually really liked Dance Central :shifty:

Anyone else watching Evo the fighting game tournament this weekend? Biggest fighting game tournament of the year spread out over three days and featuring the biggest/newest/in vogue fighting games (8 games this year).

Gonna be following the Smash games, the new Blaz Blue and bits of other games - probably DBZF too, especially when Leffen's playing. Don't watch Smash Wii U too often but this is going to be its last year at Evo so what the hell.

I wonder if in 20 years there'll be a story about Sony publishing an old Nintendo exclusive on the latest Amazon console?

In twenty years all games will be cloud-powered and pay-per-hour :datass: .

In 20 years Nintendo will own Amazon. And SpaceX. And we'll be living in the Nintendo moonbase.

Inside The Culture Of Sexism At Riot Games

...

Over the course of several months, Kotaku has spoken to 28 current and former Riot employees, many of whom came forward with stories that echo Lacy’s. Some of those employees spoke on the record; most spoke anonymously because they feared for their future careers in the games industry or they were concerned that League of Legends’ passionate fanbase would retaliate against them for speaking out. Many of those sources painted a picture of Riot as a place where women are treated unfairly, where the company’s culture puts female employees at a disadvantage.

https://kotaku.com/inside-the-culture-o ... 1828165483

Wasn't sure where else to put this, but this article is an important read I think, even for those who don't play LoL. I knew very little of Riot or their one giant game but this is a meticulously researched article that demonstrates just how terrible the industry can be.

This tweet thread response to the article is also worth a read:
