Games on other consoles are basically guaranteed to gradually go down in price, with Nintendo we have to wait for something drastic like Nintendo Selects - otherwise these games just sell for their original retail price for an entire console generation.
A good example would be Breath of the Wild and Horizon Zero Dawn. Both came out at a similar time, both exclusives for their platforms, both critically acclaimed. Yet on Amazon I can now buy Horizon for £18.44, but Zelda is still £47.99.
Their pricing strategy obviously works for them, especially when you see games like Arms and Fire Emblem sell 2 million+. But I do find myself entirely skipping some games just because of the price, whereas this is less of a problem on my other consoles.
For those wondering what he's talking about at the end, "No Johns" is a popular saying in the Smash community that means no making excuses for losing. Doesn't matter if your hands were too sweaty, controller was acting up, sun's in your eyes, or whatever else.
there's a better answer to the problem: stop buying these classic editions.
Nintendo clearly isn't showing that they care about consumers getting it for the price listed, so why should we care to purchase their product?
I do NOT condone piracy of any kind, however, one is allowed to make a legal copy of games they already own, and legal software such as retropie can be used to make your own mini console that'll work just fine with your existing wii u or switch pro controller.
Dude, don't put that battery in again and get rid of it ASAP! That's a faulty battery!
I don't know where you are from or how old your 3DS is,but you can buy a new one for not a lot of money from Amazon. There is even a Amazon's Choice one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M8EXTO3/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_awdb_J71AzbFQ3FSMT
Meh. I use one of their 10k power banks. It's a much more reasonable size, a third of the price, and extends the Switch battery life by ~5 hours for BotW.
I think I'm just going to purchase the Amazon Basics model, just trying to decide if I should get the 3.0 or 2.0. Honestly, my internet caps out at 100Mbps (USB 2.0 speed) and that's all the Switch software is capable of right now, but feel like maybe I should get the 3.0 for future proofing?
Here's a good IGN story on the topic
"However, it wasn't all fun and games when it came to depicting these classic characters. Moore recalled one particular snag with Nintendo and their character Bowser:
"We did have kind of a check-in process, where we would show them the footage and say, 'What do you think? Is it good?' At one point, [Nintendo] said, 'Bowser's much bigger than that. He's way bigger than Zangief.' We were like, 'Okay, we'll make him bigger. How's that?' They'd say, 'Yes, that’s good -- but he wouldn’t drink his coffee like that. He wouldn’t make that mouth.' [Laughs] Of course, then people from Sega said, 'Well, Doctor Robotnik is bigger.' [Laughs] They wanted their characters bigger and bigger. We were going to end up with these giants in a room, with Ralph as this little guy... But I think that stuff really helped. I looked back on our original animation before the Nintendo notes, and it was like, 'You know, he does look more like Bowser now.'"
So as far as nintendo was concerned it was free advertizing and apparently companies got to approve. I think that the size battle was just wanting their character to take up more of the screen.
He is making it. It's just taking some time. He has every potential script writer play through all the games and have them try to recreate the feel. And he's in contact with Kojima
Edit: And the script has been completed apparently.
Just found another 128 GB card on Amazon for $42.99:
There's a HD release of Twilight Princess for the Wii U that would be a better purchase in my opinion.
I am Tom Spilman of Sickhead Games. We did the port of Axiom Verge to Nintendo Switch (as well as to Vita and XB1).
The Switch is a wonderful platform to do development on... much better than the Wii-U before it. Nintendo did a fantastic job on this new platform.
The port uses MonoGame (http://www.monogame.net/) and a custom C# to C++ cross-compiler and C# runtime we wrote specifically for porting C# XNA/MonoGame titles to consoles.
Dude get anti-persperant for your hands, its a life saver. This $7 bottle on Amazon will last you a year: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00476MDU8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_ToG7BbZ0T9GRV
I'm a golf pro but I always struggled with my grip in warm weather cause my hands sweat perfusely. A little drop of this stuff and all you gotta do is run some cold water to refresh it every so often. You'll be good all day until you use soap.
I started using it for Smash and its helped a ton too. Totally recommend this product.
I believe that was IGN, heres a list of gamespot reviews just sort high to low, It's kinda funny seeing some old gems on that list, I should really play Crono Cross aparently
Well, it is literally the official Japanese shorthand for laboratory.
Otherwise, a transliteration of English's "Lab" would default to "rabu" which is already used in Japanese as a transliteration for "love."

Slickdeals are having people comment about their pre-orders being cancelled if they ordered more than 3 or had multiple orders under the same account / card.
For less than $20 you can get one of these, all you have to do is take the circuit board, USB c connector, and a small spring out of the stock dock. I myself have done it on two of my own docks and it works like a charm. Makes the dock WAY more portable, and you no longer have to worry about the whole bending problem.
yeah, PC Gaming is not as big, and consoles are fine. The biggest market is the portable market. That's why a lot of the best convenience features are now popping up on the Vita and 3DS. Being able to 'sleep' your game because your train hit your stop and you gotta hit class...well it'll be waiting for you when you hit lunch, then again when you gotta ride the 45 minutes back to your prefecture.
Just googled top selling games japan 2014, this came up. 8/10 are 3DS. They love their 3DS
You need to log into their system with a Japanese Nintendo network ID to download them. They are free though, so here's an imgur mirror: http://imgur.com/a/pNKT3 , and here is a zip of the files directly from the site and not re-compressed via imgur. http://www.filedropper.com/zeldasummer2014japanesewallpapers (21 megananers)
The choice of the Majora's Mask theme for the artwork is certainly eyebrow raising.

Was wondering if Nintendo still produced playing cards. Seem they do!
Thank China for entering the grey-area and making incredible adapters like these
Oh dear - the box art has Internet download required / microSD card may be required stamped on it.
Never understood the complaints about Smash's DLC pricing. Despite what it seems like there's a lot of effort put into putting a character into a fighting game especially on the QA side and in a game like Smash where you have extra variables like items, stage hazards, it's probably gonna take awhile. I suggest everyone read this article to see just how much it really takes to add one character:
She is a producer at Nintendo who works at the SPD division. One of their responsibilities is co-producing games with external developers. Yoshi's Wooly World is being developed by Good-Feel: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nintendo_Software_Planning_%26_Development
She's been there for ten years. Her first game released was Mario & Sonic at the Olympics. She also worked on Mario Party and Kirby's Epic Yarn (also Good-Feel): http://www.mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/by_genre/developerId,282804/
She knitted Yoshi dolls in her spare time and pitched the idea to have them made into Amiibos. To say that that's all she did while ignoring her main duties as producer for Nintendo is missing the point.
It's official. They had a family challenge kind of set with a magnetic white board to keep score, and that nights winner got the medal. I bought it many years ago and still have that medal

I didn't see it in your collection, but I would suggest Ghost Trick for the DS, although I'm not sure it qualifies as there is an iOS port of it.
Ghost Trick was created by Shu Takumi, who also created the Ace Attorney games, which you seem to be a fan of.
The game starts with a shot of your lifeless body hunched on the ground. You play as a ghost with amnesia who has the power to go back in time to prevent murders from happening. You do this by possessing certain inanimate objects that trigger events.
Here is a review of it that persuaded me to purchase the game.
The game is going for $20 on Amazon.
No, it's definitely still free dude.
You CAN buy it via the Steam edition or something, but it's just 3 or 4 additional buildings and a couple more tracks. It's definitely not worth the $10 asking price.
Lol it’s still a regular Anker charger. The only difference is that now it has only out output USB port instead of 2 and costs $65 instead of $35. Super.
Befores someone goes and buys it on Steam, please consider buying on gog.com. The store is owned by the guys who made the game, plus it's a store with a "no-DRM" policy, which is infinitely better for the consumer, and something I feel we should incentivize in the industry.
I prefer the indigo Gamecube because it was the original color. Here is a popularity contest for best Gamecube game. My picks in no particular order (I wanna do more than 10 but I'll abide by the rules):
somebody wanna tell him about the retro hippies?
but yeah, this sounds about right. Earthbound used a lot of pre-existing songs as "inspiration", some more blatently than others. It used to be a leading theory as to why it hadn't seen a rerelease.
EuroGamer says it's 1080. Could be misinformed tho. GameFAQ people also seem to think its 1080p apparently from this thread, though once again, no official announcement from what I can tell.
SMBZ (Super Mario Bros. Z). It's an amazing flash animated series done by Newgrounds artist Alvin Earthworm depicting a crossover between the Mushroom Kingdom and the Sonic universe, and also inspired by Dragon Ball Z fighting styles (hence the name). The great thing is that after being away for a long time, the creator has finally come back, and is recreating the entire series from episode 1, promising it to be much better than the original. I personally love the series because the characters are portrayed perfectly, and the fight scenes honestly get better and better with each episode.
I'd strongly recommend sitting down and watching them all if you have the time, and if you like it, you can support Alvin Earthworm on his patreon for his remake of the series: https://www.patreon.com/AlvinEarthworm?ty=h
Because I wouldn't disable my ad blocker even if Kotaku wasn't garbage.

This one is also UHS 3 and is always $45 at amazon.
I hope this isn't against the rules but I gotta give credit where it's due and Ultimoice on twitch who speedruns this game was the one who found this. He's almost getting sub 4 runs in as well :D.

I bought a really cool bluetooth adapter that i use almost daily so that i can play with my airpods. Of course built in support would be better but not sure if you have ever seen these? ￼
i literally just switched the joysticks on my switch today! it was super easy and simple as long as you can organize your screws well. it saves a lot of money and i would definitely give it a try :) [this is the kit i got](www.amazon.com/dp/B07BDHQTT6?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share)
They already exist
This dock is just a housing for it so it doesn't look ugly at E3. It's literally just an external capture card.
Did you watch the new trailer? They did so much stuff that I hadn't even considered as a possibility at all! I'm sure it's just scratching the surface too. Still, even if it ends up being a $50 game's worth of content, $20 for a multi set building kit isn't out of line with other sets out there, and these sets seem a lot more complicated than the kinds of sets you normally get. Like here's a random example that's just one model for $10.. Since Labo comes with 4 sets (minus the bugs which are super simple), that's just $5 per set, which is actually really good considering the complexity of them.
It came from a statement Nintendo gave to Kotaku:
>Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will have ongoing access to a library of classic games with added online play. Users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription.
Everything you're saying is speculation.
This is crazy exciting! My two primary sources of entertainment these days are my Nintendo Switch and board games.
For those of you who don’t know, the hobby of board gaming is absolutely exploding with popularity, thanks to some stellar designs being released over the past decade. Games like Monopoly, Risk, and even Catan to a degree are starting to show their age, while new games like Ticket to Ride, Carcassonne, Pandemic, Dominion, and even heavier games like Gloomhaven are gaining a lot of critical acclaim.
It’s because these games are stinkin’ fun. My wife and I have played our game of Carcassonne over twenty times — it’s another great way for us to spend time together. We play plenty of Super Mario Party, BotW, and Overcooked 2 together, and I would consider modern board games to be just as fun.
While I won’t discourage y’all from getting Carcassonne digitally, I have a better recommendation: buy the hard copy. Try owning a new board game and see where it takes you! There’s something about holding wooden bits and cardboard, and gathering around a non-electronic medium that is both social and enjoyable. Right now, Carcassonne is at its all-time low on Amazon for just $17.99, which is an amazing deal for anyone interested!
If you have any questions about Carcassonne or board games, hit me up! I’d love to help or give recommendations :)
Highjacking this comment to share this easily found stand on amazon. I use it and it's great because it's super portable, has multiple angles, is durable and stable, and is officially licensed if that's important to you.

WarioWare makes fantastic use of what "The Design of Everyday Things" calls "affordances." That is, the aspects of an object that make it immediately apparent what it is for and how it works, like which side of a door is meant to be pulled or pushed simply based on whether you are faced with a handle that can be grabbed or a bar that can be pressed inward.
Here is the source for the E3 2014 claim. Here's the source for the claim that it could have been shown in 2013 for /u/Fenor.
> Can you tell us anything about the Wii U Zelda game?
>I'll say more at E3 2014.
>We're also working on a new Wii U Zelda game. Work on that is progressing fairly concretely. In fact, we were thinking about showing it here at E3 but decided to wait just a little bit longer before sharing it with everyone.
"Fun" fact: There was almost a remastered Rogue Squadron for the Wii... but it got mired in a lawsuit.
TL;DW: The company, Factor 5, was going down the toilet after the failed deal with Sony (which resulted in the essentially unplayable Lair for the PS3) and their other projects were falling through. The one hope the company had was a trilogy remaster of Rouge Squandron for the Wii, so the developers were working extremely hard trying to get it to market despite a lack of pay. The project leads knew bankruptcy was inevitable, but thought they had a clever solution to allow the game to be published. Days before Factor 5 closed, the owners made a new company, "Blue Harvest" (which was the name Star Wars: Return of the Jedi operated under to avoid inflated production costs) and transfered all of Factor 5's assets to it. The fired Factor 5 employees filed a lawsuit against Blue Harvest and Lucasarts over a fraudlent asset transfer and unpaid wage claims. Lucasfilm didn't release the basically finished game almost certainly to avoid further legal problems.
Not a Sheikah Slate, but I love this one from the same company so much. The blue colors and designs look incredible on a grey switch!
Amazon is still cheaper. I'll admit to not knowing if this is a Prime only deal, though.
Gacha is a disease.
The only mobile game I really like is a port of <strong>Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection</strong>. Just some nice puzzles with no bullshit.
Okay so you can import your existing account to the switch version. But does that mean you can still use that account on PC. I understand it won't be the same account on both devices, more like a copy. But I'm wondering if you'll be able to play on PC after you've imported to switch
EDIT: found a link that answers most of these questions.
WELL THERE’S THIS WHICH DOUBLES AS A CHARGING STAND
The Amazon Basics 3DS case is honestly the best. Clean and simple design, game card holders, it fits any 3DS model, it comes in Amazon's frustration-free packaging, and is only $12.
I think we'll definitively be seeing something from Zelda Wii U at E3 this year. Miyamoto has even said so himself.
A 2016 release would be disappointing, but I agree that it's entirely possible. The Wii also had 2 Zelda games, with the second (SS) being released in the console's last year (Nov 2011), 5 years after launch.
You're probably right with them not wanting to change MM 3D too much, and in all honestly this was more the "Hope and Dream" part rather than the "Prediction". I don't think it's completely off the table though as it would be a minor amount of code to write an item (or game complete file) to the NFP. They could even patch this in at a later date.
Nintendo are usually pretty good with DLC and often provide it for free. I don't think it would be essential to the story/gameplay but they could do something similar to New Super Lugui U where there is an entire expansion based of the origional game. NSLU would of been a perfect example of how to use NFP DLC right.
Fingers crossed for some multiplayer or Miiverse integration though. However it may just boil down to something similar to tips/shareables like in WW HD.
That doesn't take away from the fact that he does do good articles with indepth dives into the games industry and is able to get information that most other video game journalists wouldn't even think to try to get as seen here.
You can dislike Kotaku, they're overall not a great site but Schreier does do good work even if he's not a fan of JRPGs and Xenoblade in particular.
Yup, retropie is the bomb! I was looking into buying a Switch for my 4 year old niece and I, since it seemed like the perfect console to get her started with games and because I needed that Zelda fix. When I found out there's no virtual console, I got a Raspberry Pi instead. We've had an absolute blast with it.
Here are the links to get the game:
Google Play Store Link
Apple App Store Link
I was originally going to cite that when you experience something so tragic it stays with you forever
but I think this source is more reliable
You know that game is already a free app on the apple and google play store right? If you want to try it for yourself, download and play it on your phone. I wouldn't say it's a bad game but it's just a point and click game that doesn't seem like it took a lot of time to make. It's fun for a phone game but I'm not sure if I would purchase it on a console.
> Here is his Game Jolt account. Keep in mind these games are made by one single person, being 16 years old, so don't be too hard on him if you're gonna comment on his work where he can see it!
> The Undertale game he has up is a joke that he made after getting tired of seeing all the pathetic Undertale fan-games, so it's not an actual game, but it's funny nevertheless.
> The next two, "Archangel" and "Minotaur", are games that he made for Ludem Dare, so they were made within a 48 hour time period. I think Archangel may have been slightly updated after the contest just because he enjoyed working on it so much, but it's still was only worked on for maybe a week at the most.
Since you wanted to see it too, I copied the first reply I made, so you get notified as well.
It's the British English pronunciation of the word:
I see from the guy's YouTube info that he's Canadian, so maybe the British pronunciation is used there instead of (or alongside) the American one? Just guessing though!
Kotaku goes in depth on what's possible and not possible with non motion controls
I absolutely think simplifying the controls is reasonable thing to do to do to get as many players as possible to enjoy a 3D Mario game that pretty much always sold less than the 2D Mario games. But I think it would be ideal to map all of the alternative cap throws to the right stick.
> a Touchscreen and second screen would always be needed.
Or, just do half half like a 2DS. That thing is just one giant touch screen that ignores touches from the top half. All you would need to do is put the tablet in portrait orientation and you now have a 2DS.
While it is not on the soundtrack they included with the special edition of the game, it is on the complete official 5-disc soundtrack. Unfortunately its a Japan exclusive, so if you want to purchase the music legally, you'll need to cough up $50 to import it from Japanese Amazon.
Not exactly - many people believe the name references the phrase "Leave luck to heaven"/"運を天に任せる", but it's a bit more complicated. Only the founder knows for sure, but this is experts' best guess so far:
Nintendō/任天堂 is made up of three characters.
任 is the first, and it means "responsibility" or "duty". Nintendo started out as a company that made playing cards, which were often used by yakuza for gambling. Yakuza members state that this character likely references the word "chivalry"/任侠, a central aspect of yakuza society.
天 is the next, and it means "heaven". It's part of the word "tengu"/"天狗". A tengu (this guy 👺) symbolizes gambling, and used to be on Nintendo's cards back in the day.
堂 is last, and it can mean "temple" or "shrine". This one's pretty simple - companies would add this character to their name as an advertising technique (ex. Temple of X).
You can read into more of the history of the name if you want - this website explains what I said but in more detail, and websites like Jisho are helpful for translating Japanese words/characters.
TL;DR Bill probably didn't want to explain gambling and organized crime in his letter, but still did a pretty reasonable G-rated explanation.
A little bit longer than 280-characters, sorry:
It's a child-friendly version of DIY kits such as LEGO or Gundams that focuses a lot more on interacting with the finished product through games, customization, and modding. The choice of using cardboard is definitely interesting, and they did a good job of having it stay together.
It's definitely aimed at a younger crowd as it spends a lot of time teaching the science behind the technology and how the builds actually work.
The only games I see the general adult mass enjoying over the long-term are:
People have already done some pretty crazy things with the two games I mentioned above.
It will slow to a trickle. This list has only We Sing and some dreamworks movie game. As a comparison though, the last PS2 game came out in September!
Also, I'm sure you haven't played all the good Wii games yet.
> I personally think it has more than enough content with it's latest update.
Even ignoring stuff like weapons, maps, and game modes... the game lacks team matchmaking and custom matches (and won't get those for another week,) as well as voice chat, which it will probably never get. Only Nintendo could get away with that.
> Call of Duty games got away with the same amount if content as splatoon so it's definetly not something only Nintendo can do.
This is such a tall pile of bullshit that it would be wasteful not to use it for agricultural purposes. Splatoon didn't even come close to Call of Duty in terms of the amount of day-one content. And I'm not even counting the pre-order/DLC shit COD had available the day it released.
Even the original 2003 Call of Duty shipped with 16 multiplayer maps.
And I'm hesitant to call the content Splatoon has added "free." Calling it free implies that we got a full game for $60 and now we're just getting more content for nothing. We didn't get a full game for $60. We got a partial game for $60, and the rest of the already-paid-for content was deferred for later release. That is, unless you think only five multiplayer maps constitutes a $60 game.
I challenge you to find even one AAA shooter with a single-player campaign shorter than Splatoon's.
One of the more infamous ones about Mother 3.
In 2015 he constantly said "never say never" about Mother 3 whenever asked about it (including the year before 2015 too). And here we are 3 years later and he's <em>STILL</em> teasing Mother 3 fans about it by giving them false hope.
Reggie is nothing more than a "generate hope for easily gullible and manipulated Nintendo fans to keep them happy" salesman. And it works every fucking time with him. People eat up what he says like candy and sit there smiling while repeating "he said it might be happening... he said it might be happening..."
Go look up the definition of "Insanity". Reggie & Nintendo have every single person who uses his words dead to rights.

dont buy it off ebay, buy direct from a store or amazon, sandisk are best and then samsung. also walmart or best buy wil match amazon. heres what i bought
Right here on Amazon
I'd shoot for Platinum status this year if you can get enough coins by the 30th. With all the games coming out between now and next year, you should easily be able to hit platinum next year. The benefits of platinum is you get a larger choice of gifts to choose from. Here's what they gave out last year
Agreed. Plus the developers have said if you want a good experience playing their games to go to PC, because fuck consoles (at least according to them).
If you like podcasts, there is one particular good one from TechStuff, which covers the Nintendo story starting before 1900. Very interesting. There are 2 parts.
Miitomo is a social networking app where you can answer questions about yourself, and share them with a friend or worldwide through Answer Central. These messages are sent theough your Mii that can be transfered from your Nintendo Account or be created from scratch.
You can also dress up your main Mii and any sidekick Miis you make and then take fabulously customizable pictures known as Miifotos.
There's other stuff to do as well, such as frustratingly try to pachiko your Mii onto platforms to get costumes only available there or you can listen to questions from people across the world using the Answer Central.

I know Playboy is a joke now, but back in the day there was a lot of serious writing in it. Alex Haley (author of Roots and The Autobiography of Malcolm X) did a bunch of famous interviews for Playboy, interviewing people like the leader of the American Nazi Party, Malcolm X, Muhammad Ali, Sammy Davis Jr, and more.
"I only read it for the articles" used to be a serious thing, not the joke it is nowadays.
The Pokemon Company is listed as the publisher on Wikipedia, and I don't see why it would be different from Go.

Yes they have. All the Pokemon mobile games are published by the Pokemon Company.

Amazon no longer sells any Nintendo hardware directly-- it is all third party. There is some bad blood between them (it is speculated that the 3ds launch issues with screen scratching really screwed amazon).
Anyhow, I haven't seen any other place with preorders open for the special edition console.
EDIT: BestBuy and Newegg both have the bundle up now. Newegg would likely be tax-free for most people.
What history? Twilight Princess? That was partly because there was a new console coming out, and partly because they showed it off far too soon. The unveiling for this new game was already delayed. I think it's most fair to judge based on Skyward Swords Dev time, as thats the most recent, and the team has seen some changes in membership over the years.
Development for Skyward Sword began somewhere between the completion of Phantom Hourglass and beginning of development of Spirit tracks. That would mean late 2007/early 2008. Skyward Sword was finished late 2011, which is about 4 years or slightly less dev time.
The current release for Zelda U is 2015. Do the math. The team already has experience with HD development via WWHD. I think it's a fair assumption to say mid-late 2015.
I mean it didn't double console sales or anything, but it absolutely sold a whole bunch of them.
>Only having one demo unit when they originally advertised it in the state at four locations, IS their problem. Not having the state/store actually LISTED on the main site, IS their problem.
Here is their official website advertising the promotion. There is links to every single state that featured the demoes and locations and directions of where the stores are located.
Edit: Here is an excerpt from the website:
>Each store will use one existing Wii U demo station featuring four unreleased titles. Wait and gameplay times may vary according to store location. Best Buy and Nintendo will provide activities for consumers in line.
Find the event at a store near you.
Did they not have activities for consumers waiting in line? If they didn't I can understand having a minor gripe with the promotion.
>“Nintendo Switch Online subscribers will have ongoing access to a library of classic games with added online play. Users can play as many of the games as they want, as often as they like, as long as they have an active subscription.”
They're both wearing shorts that say kid corner
Epic doesn't make their bread and butter from people buying Fortnite crap.
Epic makes bank on this:
>UE4 is free to use, with a <strong>5% royalty on gross product revenue after the first $3,000 per game per calendar quarter</strong> from commercial products. Read the EULA FAQ for more details. <strong>Contact us if you require custom terms</strong>. (emphasis mine)
Small studios and indies use the default terms and pay 5% on gross revenue (not net profit!) once they've made $3000 in a calendar quarter from a UE4 game.
Big studios undoubtedly use the other option: custom licensing terms with custom revenue agreements.
Here's a list of UE4 games, both released and announced. I counted a handful of Epic Games' own titles (Fortnite, Paragon, Robo Recall, Unreal Tournament) in there, as well as quite a few that are listed as cancelled. Obviously, those aren't making Epic any engine royalties. Otherwise, that's an "epic" list of recent games that Epic gets "rent" from.
