I think we really don't care what this betrayer actually makes, it's going to be ashes and in shambles like any other game... he never did fixed godus, his older companies like lionhead studio has closed down, and alot of his projects are bad... he's one of the worse of the worst game devs by what history has taught us.Reply

He's responsible for some of the greatest PC games of all time, maybe if you're in your 20's or younger you wouldn't know that. Godus and Fable 3 sucked but history has absolutely not taught us that "he's one of the worse of the worst game devs." That's asinine.

This paper sound like Republican bullshit against millennials, basically telling us all the kids who play video games are lazy sons of bitches that won't get a job. Which is not very true in my experience.

After I graduated from high school back in 2008, it took me at least 4 fucking years to get me a job. I have the worst luck because I've put a paper in almost every nearby places, hobby lobby, wal-mart, krogers, target, Zappos, mcdonalds, etc etc... I not got a fucking phone call for an interview on some places, and some of them I did get an interview but never gone past that part. I'm like "what the fuck am I doing wrong?" Then i found out about the economic crash of 2008... lucky during 2012, my brother gave me a call, ask me if I want to work with him at Line-X, and I DID NOT HESITATE to say yes.

I believe the "scientist" have made this study forcefully by gunpoint by slimy republicans who love to make fun of the poor, the weak, and the sick for "not working hard or working enough then 80 hours a week".

Mass Effect: Andromeda won't get single-player DLCMass Effect: Andromeda won't get single-player DLC
Darkedone02 Avatar
They never did added in a season pass, so adding dlc's without a season pass option was kinda wierd, but now that they put it on hold or possibly forever cancelled, it's probably better that way to begin with. The game was not that successful and it end up becoming a disappointment when the game officially came out. Alot of players say the game was quite repetitive and people dislike that, as well with the animation bug that took the internet by storm and gave it all nothing more then bad reputation...

I know people could be hyped for anthem that was announced this year E3 2017, however after what see saw from mass effect: andromeda, I think most people are going to be a bit reserved for anthem, and see how much EA/Bioware is going to ruin this title by every bad marketing decision, and other terrible ideas they going to implement with this game.

If what they say is true that it is a resources and manpower issue, then by all means I can wait patiently. hell if I could given the chance to beta test the PC version before it goes live, I would help address some core issues if they are willing to listen.

Paradox offer free games to those who bought during the price hikeParadox offer free games to those who bought during the price hike
Darkedone02 Avatar
Nobody like price hikes these days because thanks to our wallets and todays shitty economy where people become poorer and poorer, while the rich keeps getting richer, nobody is in favor of increase price hikes on ANYTHING... which is why people buy less if the price is way too much. Expectantly when we all know how well paradox interactive like to nickle and dime every dlc they put out there.Reply

These days? No one has liked price hikes EVER. People have been making the same complaints about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer for literal centuries now.

Creation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacementCreation Club is Bethesda's paid mods replacement
Darkedone02 Avatar

I think to be honest, alot of people are still against "paid mods" because of income issues. Games are improving and adding in better things but our wallet is not... people hate going broke and hate it that we have so many more choices and possibly requirements to spend on, but our wallets and wages are still stuck in minimum wage land... now if we never was in minimum wage land, I think people will be more acceptable so they do have money to spend on things like this.


I think overall people just hate spending 60 bucks on a game in the future, plus addition 60 bucks if you want VR, and a certain amount of money to pay for some good mods you might considered a requirement to get the best experience, you probably spending 200 or 300 already on a single game, just like how normal people probably spend more then that on League of Legends or other games.

Games have slowly risen in price, climbing faster than inflation. There’s a limit to how much people can/want to invest into gaming, but there's also a value for everything. Mods at the moment are a way for avid fans to invest into the community and help develop/grow the game they love. There's a market for that, both the devs and the players benefit from this (increased content + increased sales). This is not something that would change. Content creators whose goal is to entertain (not profit) would continue the same way. Many modders are against paid mods, and there’d be no requirement for them to charge people for their content. The benefits for a system such as this though, are rather clear.


I believe the logic of paid mods is to increase the size of a games modding community. To offer a cash incentive to premium quality modders is an efficient way of drawing more modders to the scene, as well as improve the quality of the mods in general. New modders would appear and develop content for games that wouldn’t have existed without the cash incentive. It is not like the free mods community would notably shrink because of this platform, but instead that new content previously unfeasible for the mod community could now be produced to sell.


To talk about money, I’d have to start with correcting your off-predictions. To begin with, why do you believe you’ll have to buy the game twice to play it in VR? Are you accounting for the cost of VR hardware? Or is this Bethesda trying to charge again for Skyrim/Fallout VR. Either way, it is still arguable whether or not VR is the best experience, considering the low pixel-count for the large field-of-view the screen takes up. Also, for those willing to invest into a VR headset, I’m sure paid mods is not the largest addition to invest into. Then within the mods section, you seem to think it’ll cost you $100-200 to get the ‘premium experience’. Paid mods would not be something required. In just the same way as how you’d invest into LoL or a game’s official DLC, you don’t need to own a paid mod at the start of the game. You can comfortably buy it later should you find it has good reviews and like the look of the content, or should you decide otherwise you can always watch a Let's-Play to experience the content 2nd-hand. It's worth noting again that this paid content would not be available for free either way. You'd still have all your free mods available to download/enjoy, there'd be no shortage of content.


Modders are investing large amounts of their time and effort into content for people to enjoy. I can totally get behind a method for the mod creators to charge for their content, so long as the premium taken by the service provider isn't too high (personally, I think it should be the same as Steam's deal to devs: 70% goes to the modders, 30% to service providers + game producers). At the moment I agree that these platform providers are being greedy (as Braneman pointed out), but that does not change my stance on the matter: paid mods is something that should be offered to content creators. It will only improve the quality of the mods and increase the longevity of the games. To argue against a paid platform; requesting that people shouldn’t make more premium content because your scared it’ll make you invest more; seems idiotic to me.

The rest of the world don't like the paid mod, giving the middle finger to the devs who come up with this since the community believe that mods should be forever free, and Bethesda should keep their greedy hands off their mod access.


I think this was their third attempt on trying to introduced paid mods, and watch as this will ultimately backfire against them.

I found it so funny how people jumped to blame Bethesda for the paid mods front. They were never pocketing any money from the Steam's paid mods development. Valve was taking their standard rate for data holding/distribution, and the rest was going to the mod creators.


Problem is as you say: mods have been free up to this point, so nowadays people believe they are entitled to the things. Introducing a paywall would increase the range and depth of mods, resulting in a larger experience with more longevity to each game community. It is a plus for everyone, assuming the public stop throwing a tantrum over it, selling $1000 iron swords and other rubbish to try and abuse the system.


I believe this is what Bethesda are trying to do here: lock the mod list behind there own security checks, to ensure the market grows sensibly. If the modders taste the money, they should get interested enough to invest more into the game for people to enjoy. Conversely, if the paid mod list grows large enough with enough high quality new content, the public will start investing into it. A secondary currency sounds like a bad idea to me (using Gems/Coins instead of £/$) since it introduces a second paywall between the user and them owning the mod. Either way, we should hope this time they succeed. Introducing profits to the content creators is the way to fuel the economy's growth.
