Papa MidnightI'd like to take this time to reiterate the utter mess of a PC port that is Dead or Alive 5, which is missing significant amounts of features on PC in comparison to it's console counter-part. When sales go poorly, I'm certain the excuse will be that PC03/30/2015 - 11:34am

mthielThis reminds me of schools a few years ago who forbade their students from having MySpace accounts. I don't mean blocking MySpace from the school, I mean banning the kids from having accounts)03/29/2015 - 5:12pm
Constermthiel, that is fucked up. Threatening to call social services on parents if you find out they let their kids play the wrong kind of video games is a suicidal move for schools.03/29/2015 - 5:07pm

Matthew Wilson@mask that tweet says zeldu wiiu will be missing, it says nothing about some kind of remaster.03/29/2015 - 4:01pm
MaskedPixelanteI highly doubt Zelda will be missing from E3. They've got something lined up, next year is the 30th anniversary.03/29/2015 - 3:59pm
