Ys: MoC is the latest in the long running, very successful Ys series from the highly talented developer, Falcom.

Looks like Microsoft has some headset options coming for the Xbox One. I know I kind of like the adapter to hook up a mic and headset, I'm not sure what headsets I can use with this, but will be worth checking out.

UPDATE: Flappy Bird creator, Dong Nguyen announced via Twitter on Saturday 2/8/14 that he was going to be taking the game down from all distribution venues stating, "I am sorry 'Flappy Bird' users, 22 hours from now, I will take 'Flappy Bird' down. I cannot take this anymore." While most developers can only dream of their games being so successful, Nguyen also stated that he never wanted to get this much attention for the games he makes. Could this just be a marketing ploy to gain attention for a future version of the game, or is he really just this afraid of success? Flappy Bird was said to be bringing in excess of $50,000 a day. As of now, it is no longer available on the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
