        LOL @ “Some Guy” who doesn’t understand the concept of Free Speech and the limits of it. “Free Speech” in the Bill of Rights only protects you from government censorship (and then only to a certain point), posting on sites owned and operated by a private entity are in no way protected. Say what you will here, we are free to “persecute” you as much as permitted as well.

        You are hilarious with your ignorance and lack of intelligence. FYI, the Tsar/Czar of Russia and his family were all killed by Lenin and Trotsky in the Communist revolution so there were no legitimate claims left to the government or anyone to rally behind in a counter-revolution – in other words they were the enemy of Communism.

        Maybe you should actually read more instead of trotting into adult topics you haven’t the intelligence to participate in.

        Thinking about the commercial point of view, that’s the spirit.

        But some people, me included, don’t have / want a credit card or PayPal attached to the account to make a quick purchase.

        If we rely on prepaid cards, we have the risk to keep lots of unused credits (which will expire at some point). Or we could buy a lower amount… and would need to keep re-buying them over and over again. Or be lucky enough to use exactly the credit we bought.

        In short: it’s a lottery!

    I’m in for Fez and Spelunky (to add to my backlog of games). Both games are just about at the 90% mark on Metacritic, and I’ve been wanting to play Fez for awhile.
    I love reading the comments at this blog; I bet if someone designed a video game based on complaining it would be a massively downloaded demo and a critical hit, but only about three people of its target audience would buy it — until it was discounted at 95% off.

        Well, it wasn’t going to cost him anyway, he just seemed to want have a hissy. As the policy change was like a month or two before his outburst. While it was only made public fairly recently.

        But perhaps he didn’t realize it and his fits are at least entertaining.

      There was no title update or patch that downloaded when I launched the game so I am unsure the only game that had a title update was Terraria.

      Like

    • Michael Burden

      He did patch it, but that patch ended up breaking more things than it fixed so it was removed. Fish then refused to patch the game again (even though it was his fault in the first place) because he didn’t want to give up any of his profit to fix the game again – we have no idea as to what the actual cost was for certification but I doubt it was nowhere near that amount for a $10 arcade title. Microsoft was even on the record stating they would have worked with him on the fee.

      Then after Microsoft removed the patch/certification fee requirement he announce he would work on the patch again. He was then ridiculed by some critic/online commentator, threw a hissy fit online, cancelled the just announced Fez 2 and said he was leaving the business – one can only assume any plans for patches also went out the window at that point.

      All that makes me regret supporting the game in the first place.

        He won about 5 prizes just for the concept of the game 5 years before it got released, I guess it happen when people keep throwing prizes at you for no reason.
        Also there’s a free flash game that’s almost exactly like Fez, Sky Island if you still want to get the feel of the game.

    The sale link on the dashboard for UMVC is broken. It just takes us to the DLC for the older MVC.

      That’s because it is the same DLC for both games, as you can state reading the DLC description. For example, Jill DLC says: (Note: If purchased, this content will also allow you to enjoy using Jill and her alternate costume in UMvC3.)

        But it is linking to the shadow battle DLC for MVC which doesn’t work with UMVC and doesn’t even have the main UMVC game. It is simply linking to the wrong section of the marketplace (the MVC DLC page instead of the main UMVC one).

If your not a patient guy then I think you´ll suffer a bit. Terraria I can´t tell y once I didn´t play it yet. But, at these prices the three games are worth.
