REVIEWS Wayward Manor Review
Not even the power of Neil Gaiman and The Odd Gentlemen could save this game from a fate worse than death: a terrible score.

ONE PIECE Unlimited World Red Review
"Unlimited World Red"? More like "Sorta Limited Town and Extended Areas... Red. And Blue. And Some Yellow."

For Obsidian's crowdfunded love letter to Infinity Engine games like Icewind Dale and Baldur's Gate, I was impressed by its willingness to pull back the curtain and let me see the machinery behind it.

Ballmer Addresses Poor Surface Performance And Shrinking Interest In Windows

Posted on Friday, July 26 @ 13:32:51 Eastern by Alex_Osborn


Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer has admitted to the fact that the Surface has failed to live up to the company's expectations, saying flat out that "We built a few more devices than we could sell," according to The Verge.

As such, we saw the Microsoft-branded tablet get a massive price reduction less than two weeks ago, along with the news that the device has costed the company a whopping $900 million in Q1 losses. The outlet also reports that Ballmer said that the price cut was done in an effort to boost sales of the failing device. Well, duh.

Sadly, the bad news doesn't end there, as the Windows-based PC market is far from flourishing. Ballmer went on to address the overall dwindling interest in Windows-based hardware including PCs, phones, and tablets. I guess Windows 8 just isn't cutting it for consumers.

It will sure be interesting to see how Microsoft plans to right these wrongs as we head into the latter half of 2013. Will the Xbox One turn things around for the company? As always, sound off with your thoughts in the comments below.
