She and Leslie and Gilbert were on their way to the Four Winds Point, having plotted with Captain Jim to watch the New Year in at the light. The sun had set and in the southwestern sky hung Venus, glorious and golden, having drawn as near to her earth-sister as is possible for her. For the first time Anne and Gilbert saw the shadow cast by that brilliant star of evening, that faint, mysterious shadow, never seen save when there is white snow to reveal it, and then only with averted vision, vanishing when you gaze at it directly.<p>10tons's gory new twin-stick shooter Crimsonland HD lets you play a few levels of the game for free, before hitting you with a one-off pay wall. It's one of an increasing number of games using the try-before-you-buy business model.</p><p>But there's a twist. If you agree to upgrade to the full game, 10tons encourages you to 'pay what you want' and lets you spend £2.99, £6.99, or £10.49. "All price levels five you same game," the app says.</p><p>Jaakko Maaniemi says that his studio is experimenting with 'try & buy' and 'pay what you want' because "we have felt the increasing difficulty of selling premium apps over the last few years".</p><p>After seeing some success with trial versions on Windows Phone and PlayStation Store (two platforms that have proper support for upgrading games), 10tons experimented with try & buy on iOS and Android with Sparkle Unleashed.</p><p>"The results were pretty good," says Maaniemi. "It's certainly not worse than premium".</p><p>And it works for his studio, too, by providing a middle ground between an upfront fee and the many microtransactions of F2P. "We reckon customers should be happy that they don't have to pay anything without trying, and for not risk getting fleeced handsomely by monetisation".</p><p>But why offer multiple price points for the same game?</p><p>Maaniemi says this was "inspired by the 'pay what you want' schemes that are somewhat popular on PC, especially on bundles like Humble Bundle. We just wanted to see how something similar would be received on iOS."</p><p>And from very early data (the game came out this week), 10tons has seen people paying at all three points. "As expected, by far the most people choose the cheapest option, very few choose the middle option, and a fraction choose the most expensive option."</p><p>The studio will need a "few more weeks or months of numbers to get an idea of what the full picture looks like". But, "at least we haven't gotten any significant rage about it so far."</p><p>Of those people willing to spend over £10 on a game they could get for £3, Maaniemi says "we reckon they're motivated by wanting to support developers of the kind of content they enjoy."</p>
1、Anne found Leslie at the dormer window of her room. The little place was filled with the rhythmic thunder of the sea. Leslie sat with locked hands in the misty moonshine--a beautiful, accusing presence.
2、Truck Wars(No ads) MOD APK<p>David Braben's huge space adventure Elite: Dangerous doesn't come out until December 16th on PC, but it's got a companion app on iOS already.</p><p>It's about on par with most companion apps if the description is anything to go by.</p><p>"Access Starport Services, track your Pilot status and keep up to date with the latest Galnet news," it reads.</p><p>To translate, accessing Starport Services means you can buy and sell items at the traders, as well as change modules on your spaceship.</p><p>Galnet is simply the community-focused part of Elite: Dangerous where the latest news about the game is released.</p><p>You can download the Elite: Dangerous companion app for free on the App Store.</p><p>Let's hope that this isn't the be-all and end-all of Elite: Dangerous's visit to mobile gaming, as Braben once mentioned bringing a version of the game to mobile.</p>
3、<p>Nothing creates quite as much anticipation and speculation as a new Nintendo console. The internet went into hype-mode months before the company lifted the lid on both 3DS and Wii U.</p><p>While we don't have many concrete details on their new platform to date, we do know that it will officially launch worldwide in March 2017.</p><p>We also know that the company will not be showing off the system at E3 next month. They'll actually have their most scaled back presence to date.</p><p>Finally, three games have been officially confirmed for the platform in Dragon Quest X, Dragon Quest XI, and the latest game in the Legend of Zelda series.</p><p>The rest is pure speculation, including this latest little nugget. Only, this time we think the details are quite plausible.</p><p>A new report is suggesting that this years' Tokyo Game Show will not only debut Sony's PS4.5 (codename Neo), but it will also be the first place we see Nintendo's new console, NX.</p><p>If true, this would be a huge boon for the Japanese Trade Event, and an unprecedented shift from E3 which is widely considered to be the world's premier games trade show.</p><p>Nintendo did unveil the Wii controller at the Tokyo Game Show, but the actual platform had already been announced prior to that.</p><p>The platform is interesting to us as it is being suggested it will adopt Wii U technology - turning the controller into a second screen - but offer much better remote capabilities, effectively turning it into a portable.</p><p>It also seems clear that Nintendo are not focusing on another dedicated handheld system with their recent shift to mobile, so this would likely serve as an all-in-one outlet.</p><p>Tokyo Game Show starts on September 15th, so we won't have much longer to wait.</p>What do you think of Nintendo NX? Are you interested?

1、"That horse his mettle from his rider takes:
2、A SERPENT and an Eagle were struggling with each other in deadly conflict. The Serpent had the advantage, and was about to strangle the bird. A countryman saw them, and running up, loosed the coil of the Serpent and let the Eagle go free. The Serpent, irritated at the escape of his prey, injected his poison into the drinking horn of the countryman. The rustic, ignorant of his danger, was about to drink, when the Eagle struck his hand with his wing, and, seizing the drinking horn in his talons, carried it aloft.
3、"For pity's sake, Gilbert, don't develop into a match-maker. It's an abominable profession for a man," cried Anne rather sharply, afraid that Gilbert might blunder on the truth if he kept on in this strain.In clamours of all size, both high and low.
