I don't know, it almost looks like they are hiding money to me. Their operating income fell by as much as their net sales went up. Shuffling money around and calling it a loss. Common business practice.

Its likely games with have to program sharing INTO their game, I doubt it will come with a universal Sharing system that requires zero game code.

They seem to recognize the issue.

From their FAQ:

Camelot Unchained is a subscription-based, RvR-focused MMORPG. RvR is an acronym for Realm vs. Realm® (this term is a registered trademark of Electronic Arts), which we call TriRealm™ for the interaction of the three main realms.

?? Does this game ever give you any save points? It seems you always have to start over from the start with nothing.

BTW, Left handed controls are so much better, HTF am I supposed to shoot with arrow keys.

The "Free" version doesn't include the Single Player campaign (and is possibly missing other assets). This is really a time limited Demo, not a time limited Full copy.

The sad thing is, even trying to download mods for things like Minecraft leads one to walk a constant minefield (pun not intended) of malware. I had to forbid my kid from installing mods himself to minecraft because even though I taught him how to extract and install the mods, he's not ready to walk that minefield.

That banner ad story is pretty interesting and troubling. Let's hope that's an idea and practice that can be beaten down...

There's a comment in the article that makes it sound like CMA internally is in a bit of disagreement over this. Sadly, the comment is referencing a communication prior to the EULA change.

CMA is either seriously hurting, or some jackass there met these R66T guys at some conference and got sold onto this being a huge revenue stream. I don't see it going well for the company, and I don't see it going well for whomever is pushing this idea internally.

Heck, if they offered a free internet service with ads, some people would jump at it. But injecting ads into a connection you are paying good money for is not going to make for loyal customers.

Is umm, any game as big as Skyrim?

Isn't it still in the Steam top 10?

DOOM 4 will attract half the sales, if that.

No, they promised the "game" will be as big as Skyrim. That's certainly possible for them to make a huge sprawling world. They said nothing about sales..

Well, I hope Zygna does well, but I am not sure many great players will join if they don't change their "random number generator" that is in their free program. This is GARBAGE! The hands that show are so unlikely over and over and over and over.

If that's true, someone will reverse engineer the generator and make a killing by being able to predict the cards. I'm thinking you've just been unlucky though.

"We do not collect the names or addresses of our gamers..."

That's not how businesses are usually run, especially ones that control access to ongoing services. How does OP Productions handle payment processing and customer service without this information? Doesn't add to their credibility given the continuing fallout from this game's development.

I've actually worked on payment systems that don't hold user address or CC info, past the initial account creation session. It connects to the payment processor to create the account gets back a user ID and stores that. There is a login for the payment processing system to create charges using the ID, but you can't see any user private data unless you manually login with a different not stored admin ID. Several processors support this model as it reduces potential liability for the small time developer. Charges can of course get generated if someone steals your stored login info, but that's easy to revoke.

But it's proof that EA could release an offline patch, if they were ever willing to admit to their mistakes.

Its not just a matter of "admitting their mistakes", it would be admitting that their general direction of all games being online and using this to combat DRM is wrong. This is a policy that starts from the TOP, they could have released SimCity without all these requirements, but now that its out there it has to stay unless they decide to give up on this type of DRM all together. They would much rather take the loss of this one game and try to do it better next time than do a complete UTurn.

Essentially they were promising dwarf fortress level simulation with high end graphics.

//Note most modern machines can barely run drawn fortress when you get lots of actors, and it doesn't have a UI.

So I was trying to see what this expansion pack costs, I have to log into my Blizzard account for that. Since I have not played SC2 for a long time I forgot my password. Resetting password, got the e-mail with the confirmation link. Click on the link everything is fine, try to log in again with the new pw, Blizzard locked my account for suspicious activity.
I never though checking a price on something is going to be this fucking difficult.

The game is $39.99USD in the US. Not sure about the rest of the world though.

I played through the first mission before going into work this morning, and definitely liked what I saw. Nothing much is going on at work today -- mostly today I'm just a warm body so that management can say that someone is on duty if anything happens -- so I'm trying to get SC2 up and running in WINE on my Linux laptop.

They make you login because if you don't own the Wings of Liberty it forces you to buy the bundle of both games, if you do you can buy just the expansion. They don't want people buying just the expansion and bitching that they can't play it.

Game makers can do what they want, but if they want to appeal to women, half the population, then they can do far better than they are doing now.

Games are misogynistic overall. They perpetuate stereotypes more often than not, and don't challenge people's fixed beliefs in general. Games can be more than what they are now. Books can be controversial, they can challenge people's fixed beliefs and so far, games have not been generally able to do this.

"Gaming", in general is akin to books and you find games of all variety from tabletop or board games to casual video games to 3D Shooters and many others. 3D shooters are generally misogynistic because they are the paperback romance novels of the computer world. You wouldn't be arguing that paperback novels should try to reach a broader audience would you. Certainly there are books of all type, and there are games of all types. Some games have found their nitch among boys, some among men, some among girls and some among women. There is plenty of cross-over, but just as most books and movies appeal to a limits demographic so will games continue to do so.

FTA: "Grand Theft Auto players in need of a map from the original trilogy can download high-resolution printable copies directly from Rockstar Games' website.

Grand Theft Auto 3, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas are all available in their original forms; each copy is the same poster design that accompanied the games at release."

No,no,no. The "Original" Trilogy was GTA, GTA-London, and GTAII
