All hail our Amazon overlords. In the future when my children are going to amazon schools, celebrating this great world of ours, planet amazon and worshipping their lord and savior, free 2 day shipping, I'll tell them of a world before Amazon. A dark and scary world with fat italian plumbers and very angry space marines.

All hail our prime overlords.

DedValve I'm crossing my fingers for Amazon drone-taxis that will take me to visit friends in the next 10-15 years.

Huh....for once this is something that I didn't see coming. Now we wait and see if it was a good move or not.

What I don't understand is why Amazon bought a developer that's never made a good game.

Because they couldn't afford anyone else. If they'd spent £100m on a bigger studio, then they run the risk of losing a lot of money. Amazon are quite well minded when it comes to what gamers want, for obvious reasons, but business, especially the gaming and development business, is always a risky one.

As long as I still get my Strider 3 I don't care whose logo I have to see on the startup screen.

Those drones are to be used exclusively to ferry newborns to the human farm to power the Amazon servers.

Looks like a different developer will be working on Season 2 of KI.

You won't be saying that if Obsidian is making it.

Really worried about that. Double Helix (IMO) has done an amazing job reviving Killer Instinct, and it's clear that they care about the fighting game community and its feedback. I really hope the series lands in good hands. Netherrealm would be my next choice, that would certainly fix KI's current lack of content issue.
