Wait, they perma-banned them, and limited what kinds of events they can participate in?

I believe that they're saying that The Bloom (a single city/region in the game) will increase by 10%, not the whole of the game.

They still are construction sets. You can still buy boxes of plain old bricks that can be assembled in any way. The 'model kits' are just a different option.

Really? I've only seen the themed lego sets in the store, they used to sell them as just a box of legos and a few ideas to make stuff on the outside of the box. Now kids play with lego by building what's on the box and never taking it apart to make something from their imagination.

The pre-designed sets certainly sell better - which is why you see them in stores more than anything else, but the old fashioned 'box of bricks' are still available. My kids love 'em.

This overview is biased and unbalanced in favor of consoles. I demand that "Windows PC" be changed to "Windows(R) PC computerized home game, networking, and porn entertainment system."

News Comments > No Stained Steam Keys for Bundle Buyers
5. Re: No Stained Steam Keys for Bundle Buyers Jul 28, 2014, 21:04 Blackhawk
 
For a new developer with a new game, the value of being in a bundle has nothing to do with the money made from the bundle.

The value of being in a bundle is that, if your game is actually good, you are getting it out there into fans of that type of game to try, talk about, and tell their friends about. A handful of sales is the first step to building the kind of word of mouth that leads to ballooning sales later on.

Of course, your game has to be good first or the opposite happens.

They refuse to supply paid for, promised products and think it will result in people buying another copy just to be nice to them?

I can see why they're having problems.

I didn't even know they were still making content or updates for The Sims 2.

I don't think they were. I think they were just making it official so they could close that file and stick it in a drawer.

Unless they are actively trying to deceive people into thinking it is a finished product, I don't see what the big deal is.

Is it not the consumer's responsibility to take a few seconds to look at what they're buying before they spend their money? A game in-progress, openly marketed as a game in-progress with a price tag on it isn't dishonest. They are telling you what you get. They are telling you what you have to give them in return. You have 100% control over whether you decide to take advantage of that. They aren't deciding for you.

The way people bitch, you'd almost think that EA didn't give you the choice to not spend your money on their products.

I think my biggest annoyance with DA right now is how the end of DA1 had all these implications for the future of the world and none of that got explored in 2.

It's like: 'Hey, I may have helped create a new demon/dragon god baby that will sweep the earth under the tutelage of his mother!'

'No biggie...'

The problem is that doing so would create a completely different outcry.

Not everyone made a god baby. For them to use that as canon, they'd have to invalidate every other ending.

Microsoft and their underwhelming efforts to achieve costumer satisfaction.

Yeah! They need to stop pandering to the rubber mask market!

For some people, yes. 1-90 is the point and the pleasure of the game. It is for me. For others, though, it is the end-game. They want the level 90 character for raiding, for heroics, for PvP.

As to 'pay to win', forget it. Someone who levels from 1 to 90 will have a huge advantage over someone who starts at 90 and has to learn dozens of skills and abilities, their interactions and rare utility from scratch.

News Comments > EA Taking Lessons From Launching BF4

That was just awful.

Every sentence is one of two things:

"Look how amazing EA/BF4 is."

or

"The stuff that went wrong wasn't our fault."

They're not ignorant. They know what went wrong. They just can't speak without an over-active PR filter turning into disingenuous nonsense.

EA - here's a hint. Your PR isn't protecting your image. It is making you look dishonest.

This sounds like the same thing that happened with Bungie. MS gets the contract for a successful franchise (Halo, GoW) and then drives the developers to burn out pumping out sequels. The developers eventually decide that they want to be creative again, and end up having to give up their IP to do it.

Actually, it was Interplay's rights that ran out as of 12-31-13 as part of their settlement. That means that they have to re-contract with Bethesda before they can keep selling them.

There is a reason that PC games don't have extensive microtransactions in paid single player titles: It is an open platform. Make the microtransactions too obnoxious and too much of a hindrance, and many people will just google an unlock code/torrent.
