OFP: Dragon Rising DLC & Patch Soon

There's an Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising Interview on Eurogamer chatting with Sion Lenton about Codemasters' military shooter. As they point out separately, along the way they learn that the first DLC for the game is due by the end of this month, along with a patch that will include network optimizations. "Our intention is to align [the patch] with the first DLC pack that's coming out as well, which is due around the end of October. Hopefully we'll do the whole thing in one," Lenton tells them. He also says that they have plans for more DLC after that, but they want to see what players want first. "It's quite open-ended, it's not a lot of fuss for us to make new content - it's actually quite easy for us to get it out there, with regards to things like levels, game modes, etc," Lenton explains. "The other thing we actually like to look at is getting some new equipment in there as well."

Not sure what you mean but no dedicated server, no joining games in progress, no anti-cheat and apparently no mod support are bad business decisions. The customer is right.

Except there aren't enough customers for the PC versions of games for it to matter. These are good business descisions because whether you like how they're treating PC gaming or not, they make money. On the platforms with a much, much larger number of potential and actual sales (the consoles) this is good strategy; they're not, and from a business standpoint should not be, concerned with how a much dmaller demographic feels about it; PC gamers will either buy into it and add a little to their bottom line, or not and they'll continue to view the platform as, at best, hard to make money on or at worst, untenable because it's not worth the effort of a more consumer-friendly business model.

I never said it's good business for the consumer, just good business. The videogames industry and members thereof are hardly the only for-profit business that view the outside world around them like this.

Not without it's own problems, that game is ArmA 2, not MW2.

When one of ArmA 2's problems isn't being so much of a simulation that I don't have much fun with it, I'll care about it.

Can you turn off the Microsoft Sam squaddie chatter yet? I'd probably enjoy it a lot more if I didn't have to listen to that, at least enough to spend money the next time it's on sale at at least half-price somewhere.
