I wonder about the games industry, since looking at the quality of games in recent years both indie and AAA is concerning. To be corporate tax heavens seems more like a symptom of how corporate games companies have become in recent years.

As long as they keep making new games. There will always be more games than one can play if you arn't only looking at 2017 titles. Lots of good games might I add. I'm still looking forward to getting around to playing The Witcher :lol:
In an age Sequels, development costs would go down. Unless of course it's a whole new ambitious project. Maybe why Blizzard is more hesitant, with Starcraft for example. A remake of a 2-D game seems like one of the cheapest projects in a while. It kind of shows as they don't have to rethink anything gameplay wise, and are selling it for only 15USD is a clear sign it didn't take much to remaster it.

So it seems they managed to sell enough despite "terrorist DCMAing the game".

The game's mechanics will also be refined, including the dissatisfactory pathfinding algorithm.


Well, at least, they are doing something about it...

A few days after the release, the game got removed from steam due to copyright claim from the owner of Warfare, the game Syrian warfare is based on. And the general theory that fan and dev are endorsing is that qatari paid him to sue them just because some supposedly FSA twitter accounts mentioned the game in their discussion.

After a few weeks the gae was back on steam.

There is nothing worse than rat furries going full north Korea with nuclear rocks.
