Yeah, shame about Horner. I sent that in to Blue too. Love the Aliens and Khan soundtracks especially. He was one of what I call the Big Five film composers: Williams, Murphy, Horner, Howard, and Shore. Those guys all have a vast body of work with many standout scores each. And Horner was in his prime. A great loss.

$75? Why not! It worked for Elite! And the history/appeal of these games is identical!

News Comments > Wasteland 2 GotY Becomes Director's Cut
9. Re: Wasteland 2 GotY Becomes Director's Cut Jun 23, 2015, 14:19 jdreyer
 
The entire point of the "Director's Cut" moniker is to imply that the director's original vision was somehow modified by the publisher, and this is how the director intended it to be from the outset. Given that WL2 was crowd funded, were there publisher decisions, features, story point changes made that went against the original vision?

Former 'Star Wars' actor arrested after chase. Pod-racing skills rusty.

@ Tumbler.

The opposite side if this is music, that rarely discounts its stuff. Most of it holds its value, even really old stuff.

Movies tend to fall somewhere in the middle.

Music and movies are more comparable to games because they're mostly digital media these days that can be delivered via the internet. Comparing discounting new games with the used car market is a bit off.

1. If you never discount, you're leaving money on the table. Hardcore fans of the dev or the genre will pay full price, but it's not worth it to more casual players. As long as you don't discount too soon, you'll still get most of those hardcore sales, plus the casual sales and "free" advertising that comes with the sale.

2. If you never discount, you're encouraging pirating from people that have an interest, but can't afford full price, or feel outraged that you will never discount it. Not saying it's right, but that happens.

I spent $75ish and then played WoW all weekend. God I need help.

I relate. Spent about $30 on Gog, $10 on Steam, played Sup Com all weekend, which I bought back in 2007. Dozey

The one thing I was waiting to go on sale, X-Wing Alliance, didn't. Anywhere. I've got a copy I DL'd from somewhere a couple of years ago when it wasn't available anywhere, but I'd rather have a proper copy.

Why anyone would want to waste time on these clicking games is beyond me.
Totally agree. I guess Valve took a page from the Peter Molyneux book of game design.

I did get a couple of games though. We'll see if I ever get around to playing them...

Blues, I'm disappointed in you, You totally left out the DnD game Sword Coast Legends. You never once posted any news about the game.

Di you send him links? He is a news aggregator, he can't post what he doesn't know about, and he can't possibly find every story on his own.

E3 this year was information overload again! the way i like it.

Yeah, I thought this was one of the better ones of recent years. Lots of potentially cool stuff got shown or announced.

... This is nice and all, but one would have to assume everybody who was at all interested in SoaSE has already bought at least one version of it.

I own original Sins but nothing else. I've been waiting for this.
