WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has said some outrageous things in his time -- ranging from stupid to downright evil -- but this comment, in which he essentially discredits Valve, Epic, The Behemoth, Gearbox, Ninja Theory, Gaijin Games, Jon Blow, and basically every other indie developer on the planet, takes the prize.

Shovel Knight looks great in 16-bit, Aegis Defenders just looks great

Oh my goooddd. How did I miss this until now? It's like a Nausicaa game. Thank you sir Shovel Knight for making a cross over appearance (above) in Aegis Defenders, which is how it came to my attention.  The Kickstarter already passed its initial funding goal and its PS4 stretch goal. Local co-op and a Wii U version are up next. Here's hoping. This looks amazing. more
