Zynga Texas Hold'Em via Facebook. I think that the smartphone App world is going to kill console and possibly even PC gaming in the not too distant future.

The mobile market is getting oversaturated with thousands of worthless clones and derivatives, not to mention the abundance of varied mobile devices and platforms themselves. Interestingly brings to mind the North American video game crash.

Rovio, the makers of Angry Birds, not only laid off employees recently but their profits fell 52% during the 2013 fiscal year: http://www.rovio.com/en/news/press-releases/495/rovio-entertainment-reports-2013-financial-results/2014

But look at how idiotic the company is:


Nearly 45% of their revenue comes from merchandise...

I'm liking the new Dragon Age more and more. It's still too linear (mostly terrain design) for my taste, but that's nit picking. Haven't had a "mature and tasteful" scene yet, but I'm working on it.

I haven't had much of a chance to play, but having ordered it for my 360 I'm a bit disappointed. Major pop-in/texture issues, characters with ears popping through their hoods in early cutscenes, camera panning and the character it's following just disappears off the screen while it keeps panning, etc. They definitely didn't playtest it after lowering the graphics for last-gen releases.
