    @link6616 Same. I found the UI a chore, everything seemed to be really slow and took an awfully long time.
    I liked the game, I just couldn't at all be bothered to actually play it, even back in the early 2000s.
    Some kind of modernised but largely untouched remake would be most welcome.

    @nadiaoxford I worry that the utter garbage that is the modern memory card market will have a detrimental effect on the Switch.
    Vita had proprietary cards, sure, but the system's loading times are appalling even with those. Trying to imagine a Vita's loading times scaled up to games ten times the size doesn't bear thinking about.

    @VotesForCows Probably some kind of loan. "We'll pay your $1000 fee for $1050 of your first $10500 of income" sort of thing.
    Personally, I think a lot of indie games are going to get charged $100-$200 for simple "Okay, you're on Steam now, bye!" access, whereas the major publishers are going to get charged $5000 for being given preorder and release-date advertising on Steam's landing page, that sort of thing.

    "For all of the design tenants"
    Design tenets, yeah?

    @Stepout On the flipside, the first option —banning all alternative input devices— is so manifestly stupid that the second option —which is not actually a difficult option, just an unconventional one— becomes more obviously the sensible option.
    Putting that, terrible, option forward at all is a bargaining ploy because it presents a choice between two options, when there are actually more than two. It's just framing the argument.

    @metalangel Aye. I backed the game on Kickstarter (sadly) and watched the concept morph from a revival of an old singleplayer favourite to "EVE Online but crap".
    I've never played the finished game. It's not a game I've ever wanted to play. Owning it simply fills me with bitterness.

    "The action takes place after the events of Double Dragon II: The Revenge (which, rather confusingly, is set prior to Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone)"
    What's confusing about Double Dragon 2 being set before Double Dragon 3? Is it actually set after DD3? Is that a typo? Is DD4 also set before DD3? Is that the confusing part?

    @Kat.Bailey@EdgeTheLucas Can't find it on mobile. Using the direct link in the article brings me to a page saying all of my devices are incompatible with Dandy Dungeon.
    Clicking the install button gets me a list of my devices, which shows that they're registered in an incompatible country.
    Much sadness. :(

    50 million downloads?
    Is that $10 to download or a free demo with a potential $10 for eventual buyers?
    'cause that looks like a crying-all-the-way-to-the-bank, "unfortunately", five hundred million dollars to me.

    I've acquired a console copy of Virginia, which I think probably came from Playstation Plus?
    I found myself immensely frustrated by it because it's not clear in the game itself whether you're making decisions or not. You can definitely miss things —because the game blarts out achievement unlocks whenever you find a missable object—, so it's not entirely non-interactive, but when I was playing I built up a good bundle of frustration.
    As Jaz points out, it is a walking simulator, and you're not making decisions, and if I'd known that up front, I'd have been an awful lot happier with the game when I played it.
    Take away that frustration and the game's pretty fun.
