All Hail The Brief, Glorious Return Of The PC Demo

Demos have been gone so long there will be younger readers who never really got comfy with them in the first place, but a some news from big PC publishers this week shows that the oldest (and maybe best) way of selling a video game is making a comeback. OK, so demos never entirely disappeared—and their spirit, if nothing else, has been kept alive with stuff like Steam’s free weekends—but for the most part, the idea that studios would break little chunks of their game off and give them to you to just…play, for free, seemed long gone. There are many reasons for this, some easier to parse than others, but maybe those are on the wane, because this week we’ve seen some big games on the PC suddenly get proper, old-fashioned demos. No strings, no limited deals, you didn’t even need to buy a magazine. They’re just free to download and free to play.

Dialogue Screw Up Discovered In Latest DLC For WWE 2K17

[Image: 2K] Bugs and glitches are nothing new. But WWE 2K17‘s just released Hall of Fame Showcase does one better with a dialogue flub. Advertisement Raw audio of commentator Jerry Lawler flubbing dialogue during the Papa Shango versus The Godfather match ended up in the final DLC. This doesn’t appear in every match (it’s not in this one), because loads of recorded dialogue can be used. Obviously, during the recording process, dialogue screw ups are normal, but they are usually edited out. Not here. I dunno. I kind of like it this way. READ FULL STORY AT KOTAKU!
