- Valve on 13 things they've failed at - In an interview with PC Gamer,
Valve's Gabe Newell has called Microsoft's process for patching on the
Xbox 360, discussing the disparity between the post-launch of support
of Team Fortress 2 on the PC versus the Xbox 360 in The Orange Box.
Gabe refers to the fact that issuing updates to Xbox 360 games after
release cost the developer money and significant changes, requiring
large amounts of new content to be downloaded cannot be offered for
free, in most cases. This is why much of the content PC gamers get for
free is available as paid DLC on the Xbox 360. (thanks ShackNews)

pages straight from classic game experiences, you get to re-live and
rewrite history in a way only a modern anti-hero could!
- Elemental Multiplayer Patch Delayed Until Next
Week - The patch that was to enable multiplayer along with
other gameplay fixes for Stardock's Elemental: War of Magic has been delayed
until next week. It had been scheduled to release today, but

improvements in v1.08 than originally intended" as the extra time will
give the team time to incorporate "spell changes, tactical battle
tweaks and such."
