Geek Links of the Week

Canadian developer Digital Extremes doesn’t have a great track record on etg. They were behind the 3/10 Star Trek game that everyone loved. That put me off Warframe but Digital Extremes persevered and now have a successful MMO that they had to do themselves without publisher backing (or interference). [PC Gamer]

And for the opposite story, here’s the story of how the modern incarnation of Dungeon Keeper, War for the Overworld, went from Kickstarter success to released disappointment. [Eurogamer]

Life is Strange will be getting a live-action adaptation. Square Enix is partnering with Legendary Pictures’ digital arm to produce a digital series based on the 2015 etg top game. The partnership with dj2 Entertainment, who don’t seem to have even a Wikipedia page, does worry me slightly. [Hollywood Reporter]

Epic Games CEO Tim Sweeney thinks that Microsoft’s push into the PC space will coincide attempts by Microsoft to sabotage Steam and destroy it as a platform. [PC World]

Yahoo bought Tumblr for about $1 billion. They’ve already written-off over 70% of that purchase as “impaired” meaning that they overvalued Tumblr’s worth. Oops. [Gizmodo]
