Changes at Microsoft Studios, UK and Denmark

After much consideration we have decided to cease development on Fable Legends, and are in discussions with employees about the proposed closure of Lionhead Studios in the UK. Additionally, we will close Press Play Studios in Denmark, and sunset development on Project Knoxville.

Just bought a CIB Honke Hanafuda for the Super Famicom. It feels odd for a Hanafuda game not developed by Nintendo to be on a Nintendo platform.

Amongst today’s mail was a CIB copy of Mario’s Tennis for the Virtual Boy. It’s in great condition and I can’t believe it cost just 15 euros. Special thanks to Solaris Japan for packaging it carefully.

Your Candidate in a Word

We looked at transcripts from the fifteen main presidential debates that took place between August 6, 2015 and February 13, 2016—six Democratic Party debates and nine Republican Party debates. From these transcripts, we created six candidate files (Clinton, Cruz, Kasich, Rubio, Sanders, and Trump) that contained all the words spoken by individual candidates during the course of these debates. Using a corpus analysis tool, we compared the individual candidate files to the corpus of all the debate transcripts during this period. This allowed us to identify words that were used more frequently by an individual candidate than by the larger group.
