Link roundup

1. /F:

Terminator: Genisys has pulled in over $350 million, just from international territories. That’s nearly five times as much as the movie made at the domestic box office, and it’s enough to have it sitting in the #10 spot for the worldwide box office right now (with just over $440 million), edging out moves like Ant-Man and Mad Max: Fury Road.
2. Kotaku:
In January of 2014, a company called Playdek launched a Kickstarter promising a spiritual successor to one of my favorite games, Final Fantasy Tactics. It made $660,126. I really wish I hadn’t backed it.

Really, I should’ve seen this coming; there’s been an aura of sketchiness surrounding this project from the beginning.
3. The current state of premium iOS games:
At the moment, our expectation is about 1/3 the return of the original Spider for 5 times the man-hours.
4. New Fallout (armored and jumpsuit) and Skyrim action figures available for preorder.
