So, today I learned that Game of War - Fire Age, that shitty mobile civ clone advertised by Kate Upton's rack, makes 800 THOUSAND dollars per day. At its peak last year it was making a cool mil.

I...have no words.

Look at Candy Crush and how much money that makes. Make an addictive game, throw in some hard levels, get people to buy items to help you out. What's the saying, " A fool and his money are soon parted"?

All right, who wants to make a games with micro transactions? we'll be rich!

My housemate from uni started out as a shitkicker at king.com - now he drives a Porsche and flies around the world doing what he likes.

Used to buy 5kg of coles sausages when he got paid so he wouldn't starve at the end of the month when he was broke :/

If there's ever a reunion, bring him a pack of Coles snags as a gift. It'll be like that ramen scene in Breaking Bad. Then he'll offer to pay your bills.

RRS Boaty McBoatface wins the poll. Now for the boring old fuddy duddies on the panel to reject it and choose something equally dull.

Top 5:

RRS Boaty McBoatface – 124,109
RRS Poppy-Mai – 34,371
RRS Henry Worsley – 15,231
RRS It’s bloody cold here – 10,679
RRS David Attenborough – 10,284

http://www.theguardian.com/environme...el?CMP=soc_567

I would've approved RRS It’s bloody cold here as well

Do any of you spend much time on imgur and submit images? I've only put a small handful on there but I'm wondering if it's worth it. It's just things that I thought were cool and interesting but evidently aren't. I don't expect sunshine blown up my arse but sometimes it just doesn't feel nice when people are basically being ****y at you because they can.

*edit
I have a feeling I've posted pretty much the exact same thing not too long ago. maybe i won't submit anything anymore haha

yes you did.

They operate in a very narrow band of memes and in-jokes. If you want their stupid points, post what they post. But seriously don't, just use it as a free image host and don't submit to gallery.

I was going to put the question forward, 'how much do you actually care about your mates facebook relationship status?'. But then i'm in a **** of a mood so decided not to.

It was 8 gigs or so. It gave you 2 Multiplayer modes with access to 1 demon thing which basically lets you own everyone for 60 seconds.

It was very addictive.
