They understand that MODS increase sales. duh. DLC kills sales and fragments communities. DLC is rarely > MODS.

That's too simplistic a statement, there are certain styles of games that majorly benefits from mods, mostly sandbox style games. In fact, locking down the base game from mods + pumping out dlc and microtransactions is becoming the norm. Games like BF4, Borderlands 2, COD, Sims 3, Crysis 3, etc...

People will happily spend $15 for a map pack that use to be free with mods. Also, there are no mods on consoles so a lot of companies will not even bother to support it on the pc side.

Your point about why DLC is popular is completely valid but I have to agree with Bats - mods >>>>>> dlc. Mods strengthen a game's community; dlc will often splinter it. I'm not against dlc; quite the contrary actually. I have bought hundreds of dollars' worth of it. But if the base game is solid I think great mod tools is a better investment for the publisher in the long run. Battlefield 2 is still being modded and is still hugely popular. Battlefield 3 was largely locked down and will be long forgotten while BF2 will still be going strong.

Well I created a Play it Forward group in Steam for Holiday 2014. Feel free to join everyone.

http://steamcommunity.com/groups/playitforward2014

I basically invited everyone. I'm not sure if that's how BATs wants to do it though. I seem to remember last year you joined after you were gifted a game and then bought one for someone else.

Anyway, get those wishlists up to date, and try to include some less expensive games for those of us who ain't swimmin' in chedda'. (Did I really just say that?!?)

Exactly. I'm in the process of starting a new company so the Bay of Fundy is at low tide so let's cool our jets at least till the winter sale starts.

It's going on throughout the holiday season up until New Years so take your time. No rush.

State of Decay is very fun to play, but be as it may, the story and characters don't connect with me. I've played it for about 30 minutes so far. Prez, maybe you can tell me... will the story at some point get interesting or is it simply not a game to play for the story, basically?

Story-wise it doesn't seem to break any new ground honestly, relying mostly on well-worn genre tropes. It's decent, but mostly it plays second fiddle to the basic experience of sneaking and smashing zombie skulls.

Yo Prez! What's State of Decay all about? What do you do in that game?

It's Grand Theft Zombie! LOL - it's a 3rd-person open world mission-driven sandbox game about survival in the zombie apocalypse - lots of stealth, lots of melee combat, a decent amount if shooting, some RPG elements, an interesting and varied world to explore... it's all good! Aside from the new XCOM it is my favorite game this year actually - definitely didn't see that coming but I love it! Mouse and keyboard work great AND are rebindable as of the Nov 21st update - sweet!

News Comments > Guild Wars 2 MMO Migration Campaign
18. Re: Guild Wars 2 MMO Migration Campaign Nov 27, 2013, 12:30 Prez
 
For an MMO the game is not bad I guess. I hate pretty much everything about MMO's but this is my friend's game of choice, and since he lives 5 states away it's an okay way to socialize. Not to mention he bought the game for me so I feel obligated to play it with him. Having watched in awe as my son played WoW, stunned at how spectacularly boring it looked, I guess I can say that this game is marginally more interesting. It still feels like an immense chore to play, but again I've never been a fan of MMO's. It's definitely pretty, so, um, yeah.

Microsoft has clarified to Ars Technica that clips uploaded to Xbox Live through Upload Studio are subject to the same Code of Conduct that governs activity elsewhere on the service, such as when playing in online matches. That means “excessive profanity as well as other Code of Conduct violations will be enforced upon and result in suspension of some or all privileges on Xbox Live,” a Microsoft representative told Ars in a statement.

I don't know, this just sounds Orwellian to me. Overlord Microsoft will protect all!

Maybe Curt is a Terminator sent back to find John Connor by getting him to register for boring games?



No, it's gotta be Skynet. Skynet is getting ever more sly in its machinations! Kingdom of Alamur will actually become Skynet and bore the human race into extinction.

85. Re: Star Citizen Picks Up Another Couple $ Million Nov 27, 2013, 00:00 Prez
 
If you're buying something that isn't just cosmetic with real money, it's pay to win.

Assuming the game is somehow competitive in nature, this is pretty much it in a nutshell. The only question is just HOW pay-to-win it is. Of course, as someone already mentioned (EDIT: that would be Horrorscope! ), user-run servers will mitigate or even eliminate that issue. I plan on only playing single player, so it's a moot point for me.

It's like they say - when it rains, it pours. It's been a rough few weeks for Blue. Hang in there bro.

Thank you to all of our pet companions for their unconditional love and making our souls richer.

Cheers

Hear hear! Without my dogs I'd surely have lost my mind (or done something drastic...) when I was struggling with depression a few years ago. I literally owe my life to my pets!

Prez, does that game still only support controllers? I'm intrigued by your enthousiasm.

I play it with mouse and keyboard and it works great. The only thing is that as of right now there is no official key rebinding (not sure about mods or config tweaks) but future updates will include that. I think it's supposed to be in next week's update. Anyway, don't get me wrong - I'm not guaranteeing that everyone will love it like I do. I am just giving my personal impression of it; your mileage may vary.
I bought and played it for the first time last night and use K&M just fine. I also bound a few keys from within the UI without any mods.

Wow - really? I guess the update has landed already. Cool!

LOL@ Quinn!!!

I am LOVING State of Decay! You know that game that makes you stay up way past your bedtime and makes you wish work would just hurry up and get over with so you could go home and play it? That's 'State of Decay' for me. I am addicted to leveling up my survivors and keeping them alive (though I am not always successful at that). I thought I was sick of zombie games; clearly the genre has some life left in it though.

I'm put him in the same category as someone like Garriot. Pioneered in the 90's but pretty irrelevant in recent (think last decade) times. I agree, it was his focus and direction that really has driven the FPS (and PC gaming in general) to what it is today.

The fact of the matter is the industry is not what it was in the 90's anymore. You can say he had something to do with that but in another sense it's like the industry has passed him by as well.

My sentiments exactly.
