    Do they still do that separate submissions thing then? I know they still were for the PS2 but I didn't do any PS3 work. I know Sony were actively trying to ditch that multiple submissions thing though when they merged the management of all the games studios under the one person.
    They've done region specific submissions all through PS3's lifespan. They're making noises about a unified submission process for PS4, but most people doubt it'll be ready to go at launch.

    Shame, it was one of the main complaints people had for PS2 and there were definitely strong noises that they were going to ditch it.

    I caved and bought Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. My nostalgia gland was enjoying itself along with Little Richard's Long Tall Sally playing during a helicopter mission and of course...

    my city gets nuked at the start.

    I think it's where they're based. One thing I've learned in my years in game dev is that you always blow up the town you live in first, given the chance.

    (Fallout 3 for example actually makes a point to include the burnt out post apocalyptic remains of the developers own office building...)

    I thought Blood Dragon was Ubi Montreal? And don't Montreal and the rest of Canada Toronto hate each other?

    It is based in Montreal and many people think it's the friendly competition between Ubi Montreal and Toronto. Also Everyone in Canada hates Toronto.

    Also, took advantage of the new Humble Bundle and picked up a bunch of games, but Hotline Miami is the only one I'm caring about right now.

    What an incredibly fun game. Also one of those games where you can easily lose hours playing and then suddenly awake from your trance and think about all the carnage you caused.

    @Oldhat: I just logged into HB to download that, and boy do I have a lot of games that I'd forgotten about. It was like looking into a box of neglected puppies.

    Going through it now and I think this game is my new therapy.

    Aaaah! Thank you! PROTEUS! I've been trying to remember the name of that game so I could try it out!

    I noticed, it's been bought! :) Love Humble Bundle. I'm usually only interested in two or maybe three of the games in the pack, but I pay a "full price for each of the games I would have bought, more or less, so I always end up way over the averages.

    For me, it's just great to be able to pay what I want, as I wouldn't normally be able to afford the games. I got this one for Hotline Miami and Thomas Was Alone, but am finding some of the other games are really great for unwinding for a few minutes without getting invested in something.

    Snrk.

    Yeah, I'm not buying a lot these days, but I spent some of my saved-up funds on Humble since I can give most of it to charity. :)

    As a 'hardcore' gamer, I guess, I'm have to say that I'm honestly much more excited by the stuff that Nintendo has coming out rather than anything that Sony or Microsoft have coming down the line. To be honest, the only thing that grabs me from either of those two companies is maybe a Vita somewhere down the line.

    But I realize I'm a minority.

    Double Fine has a new Kickstarter, a turn-based strategy game called Massive Chalice.

    At the time of this post, it's been up for about half an hour and is already at $60k.
