From Gaben himself:

 


For example, two areas where people have legitimate beefs against us are support and Greenlight.

 

Spoiler

 

So, when is Valve going to actually fix Support + Greenlight?

You're really making the tinfoil hat inside me want to download the entire Skyrim section of the nexus, you know.

I think Steam already sells that hat on their marketplace, as well.

Oh and if you want to read more juicy controversy... I'd recommend the Sky UI debacle.

I might buy it for that price....create a MysterD character and a Bruce Jenner character and have them "wrestle"

I think the KF2 and WWE 2K15 would be the lowest price so far.  

Around $33.74 for WWE2K15 PC = still not CAG-enough for MysterD.

Free modding was the key feature that allow PC gaming stand head and shoulder above other platforms.  I game on PC b/c I see so much value from modding.

Agreed.

 

I could imagine how us PC gamers would feel, if any of these things did actually cost money: DSFix; DPFix; any of Wesp's unofficial patches/mods for Vampire Bloodlines; any of DrogBlackTooth's unofficial patches for Arcanum; any unofficial texture mods for System Shock 2; any unofficial texture mods for Thief 1+2; etc etc.

 

I'm sure Dark Souls 1 PC would've sold way LESS copies than it did, if DSFix did cost actual $.

I could imagine how MP-focused titles that had SDK's like Quake 2+3, Unreal series, and RTCW would've survived in this new age of Valve + Bethesda allowing for mod-charging. Every single map, every mod-created new game-mode (like CTF before it become a regular thing dev's put in, Freeze Tag, etc) - would've cost money.

 

The life-span of those classics would've went way down the crapper, if released under this new Valve + Bethesda mod-charging era.

Man, I go to the beach and miss such a wonderful shitstorm of activity.

 

So which side we on?  Pro-horse armor or against horse armor?

Official DLC approved by the base-game's dev's - especially if they actually made it themselves - is fine.

I have no problem w/ pay-DLC, pay-Season Passes, and stuff of that stuff that's officially from the game's base-game creators. While item DLC's and copious amounts of meaningless DLC can be annoying - I can always avoid that crap and just go after the content I really want + need.

 

It's the 3rd party modder-made stuff for sale, where I say "NO!"

 

I think paid-mods will be way too much of a problem. While it would be nice for modders to be deserving of such compensation for their work + efforts (especially if they put a lot of their work assets, features, and stuff into it) - I think the problems of mod-stealing to sell another's work, even more crazy amounts of $-DLC to try to get up with (this makes it even more impossible than it often already is even w/ official DLC's), and other things can cause a-whole-nother crap-storm entirely. Looks like it already has, as well.

 

This is the problem w/ making $-mods like it is - b/c it's like the Wild Wild West out there, letting almost anyone sell a mod for a game w/ little to no control from the base-game dev's. It's not like the base-game dev's are being extremely selective here and picking very few great-mods to be sold there. It's not like BethSoft said, "That Nehrim mod for Oblivion - yep, that deserves to be one of the few official pay-mods for Oblivion."

 

If say the original-game dev's made a update to their base-game and a 3rd party mod you paid for is now broken - well, you're screwed. Enjoy your rental. It's not like Steam's friendly for rolling your game versions backwards or anything of the sort, so you can run an old mod. It also means, now the modder has to update their mod - if they want you to keep using it.

 

Also, one of the things I've always loved about mods - they are FREE. These are the afterlife for many games, to keep them going well after the game's original + official lifespan. I don't need to sink more $ to get more content - I can just go find it and experiment, seeing what fits my wants + needs.

Thanks!  I FakeyBro'd Project CARS at greenarrgaming.

Welcome back, Ashes!

maybe people are making more money because they dont work at grocery stores in their 30's

 

just a guess i could be wrong

I work in an office building, not the actual grocery store.

Welcome back ashes

And also whats up with people pre ordering
Fake ass gamers

I dunno, but the #Fakeybro virus seems to be spreading of late.

 

I blame the lack of excellent 75% off sales from Steam, Amazon, and other places.

So, now we'll have mods occupying slots during sales too

Edit: welcome back ashes!!

I can't wait until dev's make updates/patches to their games, such that it BREAKS mods that people paid money for...

Oh crud, what a horrible idea.  There's no way I'm paying one penny for mod content and neither should anybody else.  It would set a horrible precedent and cost us tons of content that is usually free.

Great....just great!

Not only will we have official $-DLC, but now we'll have $-Mod DLC.

 

So, when will Season Passes for Mods come out?

Wii U'd be my vote and I don't even own the system.
