Overstatement of facts is another thing this site had got going for it.
    The constant links to older articles are to make sure people stay on the website as long as possible for more ad views i do see it in other sites but nothing close to what Mike does here.

    Very probably since I linked my own website :P

    My point stands though a lot of his "coming soon", "keep watching us" etc by now everyone should realise is to drive traffic, lots of websites do it it's not unusual.

    Remember how long it was for valve to announce Linux from when he started hyping it up, don't expect it soon!

    Do you have ANY idea how hypocritical this post is?

    Still not as much as a small hint about this. So much for the whole soon thing.

    That wouldn't be promising then.

    Most probably they are from May. So not *that* old.

    The Mac OSX version of "Arkham City" has just been released recently

    Maybe they're still working on a Linux port...
