  • Work 16 years and what do you get?  A glass of champagne and six million net.  (PC Gamer)

    Cult game Dwarf Fortress, which first appeared in 2006 and has been available for free ever since (and is still available for free) finally has a Steam edition with graphics and has sold 300,000 copies in its first week.

    Even after the cuts for Steam and publisher Kitfox, the game's two authors each just retroactively made 16 years worth of six-figure salaries.

    Advice: Hire a really good accountant.

  • I started playing Pathfinder: Kingmaker last night.  Oops.  Haven't played any RPGs in a long while and even though this one isn't some legendary classic I was still playing six hours later.

    Also, Nvidia MX350 laptop graphics?  Basically worthless.
