Aren't they going to let you play just by paying 20 bucks? And that includes a month of free play? So basically you are just paying 5 bucks? Though maybe it doesn't include this latest expansion.

The thing is that spam is so incredibly cheap that you don't need a very high rate of moronism in the population to be profitable. Developing and distributing games is much more expensive, so they need a higher rate of success.

I tried the demo. It was pretty fun. Never played the first one. It might be too "casual" for my tastes. I demand numbers for everything!

Hah. It looks like the programmer on this is the same guy who did Air Quake.

Look's like we have a judge with a clear understanding of the constitution on our hands, or just a gamer

If it was the latter, the ruling would have been something like "LOL! STFU n00b!"

A car a few cars ahead of me spun out one time. That was pretty freaky. No collisions, fortunately.

I'd wager that basically they aren't happy with how many people are in the game now, and want massive WoW numbers, and are basically, as somebody said, making a sequel while just reusing most of the code, without spinning off a new actual product. They likely don't care if people who are currently playing keep playing it or not.

I was going to guess that with the expansion pack they were doing something like AC2, where they hoped it would inject life into the game, but didn't, so they are basically "killing" the game. But it looks like they only released it a week ago, so that doesn't make any sense.

I don't think it would violate first sale. You can still sell a game, it would just be useless. Though this might mean that it would be legal to crack the protection. Who knows. I agree that this sounds like a terrible idea.

As far as I know, no other game has a crafting system that is even close to being this deep.

A Tale in the Desert has a pretty nutty level of crafting. Like you have to harvest ore, using various devices, trying to figure out the way the ore veins run, then gather wood and build an oven to smelt the ore, and so on and so on. I don't know if it is "deep" as much as "extremely time consuming". Which is why I stopped playing after about a week.

You get the spaceship PLUS the basic software and the expansion pack. Assuming they are still charging for those...

while that would be cool, content that wasn't cookie cutter would cut into their profits, so i doubt we'll see it happen.

Ahh okay. I must have read the article they cited. Well, there goes my theory as to why each movie was a ten times worse than the previous one. Thanks for the correction.
