The Internet is in danger, everyone. That sounds like kind of a silly thing to say, but it's true. While not yet set in stone, the FCC has made disconcerting plans to allow companies to divide this beautiful web of ours into potentially expensive tiers. Gaming stands to take a massive hit too. Here's why.
Giant Bomb's Patrick Klepek wrote a great piece about the Luftrausers Nazi kerfuffle, in which people pondered if the arcade-y shooter is about playing as a super cool, er, Nazi.

You know what they say...more money more problems. Or, more accurately, the more money you have, the more likely you are to think about how you earned it, how you should use it, and how it changes your relationships.
The world of games can difficult and unforgiving — most creative endeavors are. But that doesn't mean that there aren't some ways to make the process a whole lot easier.

Guido Henkel has been in the gaming industry for over thirty years, where he worked on classic titles such as Planescape Torment and Fallout 2. Now, he wants to make a comeback with a new old-school RPG, titled Deathfire: Ruins of Nevermore.
Welcome to the second Kotaku Quick Q&A, this time with a small twist. Our interviewee answers four of my questions and then has one question for me and you.
The person who is playing the upcoming video game Luftrausers in the GIF here understands a basic rule of the game: don't shoot, and your ship will heal. Games are made of simple rules like these. Occasionally, those rules can feel profound.
A black Samsonite backpack belonging to Rami Ismail, co-founder of Ridiculous Fishing and Super Crate Box developer Vlambeer, disappeared during Sony's E3 mixer at the Figueroa hotel last night. According to Joystiq the bag contains an Asus laptop, two Vitas, the iPads, power adapters — Ismail says it's "pretty much…
Two days ago, dev studio RubiqLab found themselves the subject of much scorn, thanks to the unseemly resemblance between their game SkyFar and Vlambeer’s long-ago-announced Luftrausers. They responded to their critics by saying that they’ve been working on SkyFar for a year and cited U.S. copyright law. Now, RubiqLab…
First, look at the two videos below:
Vlambeer’s great mobile game about highly aggressive angling is one of the best iPhone games to come out this year. Maybe it’s because it realizes that real-world fishing can be hella boring.
"Luftrausers" is a made-up word. Sounds German. But it's not. "Luft" means "air," but "rausers"? It's nonsense.*
Smitten as we are here at Kotaku with the amazing iOS game Ridiculous Fishing, we had to get some tips from the people who made the game. They know how to ridiculously fish.
Luftrausers—the retro dogfighting game from the makers of Ridiculous Fishing—is coming to PS3 and Vita this spring.
The game isn't called Ordinary Fishing, after all. It isn't called By-The-Books Fishing, either. No, it's called Ridiculous Fishing.
