Despite additional setbacks in the following months--the departure of Godus co-creator and Moleyneux's proclaimed "protege" Dan Atttridge in April, for one--Phillips remained, and still remains, optimistic. He said his focus on 22cans' financial workings allows Molyneux to focus on game design.
"Don't try and do everything," Phillips said. "Don't try and glue it all back together because it's just going to crumble down. You need to make games. That's what you enjoy. I quite like business. I'll do the business. And it seems to be working quite well so far."
The seven figures include male and female Lone Wanderers, a Deathclaw, a Brotherhood of Steel soldier, a Super Mutant, a Feral Ghoul, and a Vault Boy.
The listing on Amazon has a release date of August 4, although Bethesda's website only says that the figures are planned for September. They cost $10.99 each on Amazon and $12 on Bethesda's store.
Fallout 4 launches on November 10 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. Keep an eye on GameSpot for more news about the game in the coming months.
The website also has a tool called the "Steam Survival Calculator" which takes the amount of hours you normally play per week and tells you if you'll live long enough to complete your backlog. At my average of about four hours on Steam per week, I'd be able to clear every game and still have 34 years left to live.
There have been some apps like this before, but How Long To Beat Steam also breaks down the time to beat by category. In addition to showing how long it would take to achieve 100 percent completion, it also presents the time needed to simply finish the main goal of each game.
It's a pretty neat tool to visualize the time spent on playing games, even if it puts it in terms of your own mortality. How many hours have you played and have left to play to complete your backlog? Let us know in the comments!
If you dial 312-756-0834, you'll be greeted with a recording of a voice who assists you with CAH support. What follows is a long, convoluted phone tree full of silly requests, a long list of candy from the Harry Potter universe, and several insults. I'm currently listening to a "good ol' wartime boogie."
If you actually want information about Cards Against Humanity, the company handles customer service via its website.
Cards Against Humanity is a card game in a similar form to Apples to Apples, except its cards are full of explicit themes. If you don't want to buy the game, you can print out the cards for free from the CAH website.
This clarification came after a PSU.com article in which Psyonix was quoted as having said, "Weapons aren't something we plan to add in Rocket League--but power-ups are possible."
It turns out that isn't exactly the case, as Hagewood explained, "That answer may have been based on the possibility of adding mutators that allow private matches to change things up for a single match just to mix things up but absolutely not for regular gameplay."
That's good news for those who enjoy Rocket League's core gameplay. And there appear to be many who do, as Pysonix yesterday announced on Twitter that the concurrent player record (the highest number of people playing at one time) had again been broken, and was now over 179,000 people.
We should be hearing details about an upcoming patch before long. An official tweet recently said, "Wow. Looking at our fix list for the patch, we have some really helpful stuff in there. We'll start going over the list soon as we finalize!"
Rocket League's launch was plagued with matchmaking issues as servers were unable to handle the number of players attempting to get online. Things have stabilized since earlier this month, and we should be seeing the game's first DLC (both free and paid) soon.
Rocket League is available on both PC and PS4, with PlayStation Plus members getting the latter version for free.
Speaking with the BBC, Mendes talked about the possibility of doing more Bond movies. "I don't think I could go down that road again," he said. "You do have to put everything else on hold."
If this sounds vaguely familiar, it's likely because he said something similar after his first go with a Bond movie, 2012's Skyfall. However, he ultimately went back after he was given time to work on some theater projects.
He noted in the BBC interview that his decision to return to the franchise after his declaration earned him some grief from friends: "I said no to the last one and then ended up doing it, and was pilloried by all my friends. But I do think this is probably it."
Considering that Skyfall and Spectre have taken a total of five years to make, you can't blame Mendes for wanting to do something new. "It feels almost, even though we've just finished shooting it, like one big experience and it was a fantastic life-changing thing," he said. However, he described the process as an "enormous undertaking," adding, "It really is more a lifestyle choice than a job."
The art was done by Olly Moss and Jay Shaw; as you can see, it's inspired by the game (of course) in unique and colorful ways. Here's to hoping they release a poster version of this as well.
Check out more of Moss' work here, while a gallery of Shaw's creations is available here.
