As if Street Fighter V didn't suffer enough from leaks. May be worse for SFVI if some of this goes public.

Shit. I guess we will be hearing about some of the unannounced upcomming Capcom games soon. *sigh*

My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

Steam Sales reports

Thank you, VGChartz sales tracking team...

Nice! We get to learn about some games a little earlier than expected!

Why Capcom, they should've targeted Microsoft.

Just kidding. Well hopefully they get caught soon, they were able to get personal information of employees as well and that's gonna be such a major problem for them. avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

Imagine if this was truly part of their demands.

Though if it works ...

I know the name of a compagny who refuses to localize a game that begins with "Mother" in the title. Might be a good target next

I guess we can call them now Hackcom. But at least we know it wasn't Sony, Nintendo or Microsoft who did it.

And, now seriously, do the hackers really think they're gonna get their way?

I have periods of social disconnection, it's a part of me that I need and keenly embrace. I'll still log in and read news and threads during those times, but I won't be (very) active on the site, so I apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause (late answers, bumps or the like).
