Dark Souls: PTD talk.

 

I decided to go back to farm elsewhere for Humanity, but got to a Blacksmith that had enough Souls to get a Chest to use in Darkroot.
Used it in Darkroot; defeated some people + mushrooms; and then pounced Sif.

Good times.

I had a bacon cheeseburger the other day. It was really good, better than any deal I've seen this weekend. 

Burgers are always good deals.

 

I think one of the best deals currently is just digging through my ridiculous game-backlog + playing something.

WTF is Labour Day and why is IG's Store having a sale for it?

Here you go:

EDIT:

Bleh, looks like CAG 3.0 don't like the link.

Anyways, look up International Workers' Day on Wikipedia.

It's a European Holiday in early May.

BTW, it pays to know friends that work in the industry so you get free PC game keys(or in this case don't pay).

BTW it pays even more to know friends that work in industry so they can hook you up with a fat paycheck.

Can I be greedy and get both? ;)

I paid ~$145 for a copy of The Witcher 3 (though it came with a free GTX 970). ;)

[having flashbacks to missing this deal]

[starts sobbing again over missing that Microcenter mistake while I was at work].

I'd have 1,401 games backlogged if they'd just lower the damn price.

We could buy so many Metro Last Lights instead of CoD's.

Avira because it has the highest detection rate (and seen that first hand)... also fewer false positives than others (e.g. Sophos).

 

Apparently I'm with spoder.

The Toaster also will vouch for Avira.

The Fuck have you people been up to while I was gone?

I just finished watching The Gambler (Mark Wahlberg movie).

The acting's way better than the actual predictable-as-Hell movie.

If you missed Wilflife 2 Fantasy glitch on Amazon,

 

you can still get this:

 

http://www.amazon.co...uct/B00J9OC1HS/

 

Yes, it's actual Steam code for demo.

Now it's in my steam library forever... :(

Would this give us a +1?

 

I have a separate category-section filtered out for just Demos.

Actually I'm hoping that paid mods will return to Steam...I almost had my Star Wars Purple Dildo Light Saber and Han Solo Purple Dildo Blaster Pistol Mod ready for LEGO Star Wars and GabeN goes and pulls the plug....HOW AM I GOING TO FEED MY ILLEGITIMATE KIDS NOW, GABEN ?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I wonder if Bethesda's waiting for Fallout 4 before they test the $-Mod Waters again w/ Valve + Steam...

I really don't know what Bethesda and Valve were smoking w/ trying this w/ such little curation.

 

Bethesda's explanation for "Why paid modding":

http://www.bethblog....-mods-on-steam/

 

 


This was in 2012 and we had many questions, but only one demand. It had to be open, not curated like the current models. At every step along the way with mods, we have had many opportunities to step in and control things, and decided not to. We wanted to let our players decide what is good, bad, right, and wrong. We will not pass judgment on what they do. We’re even careful about highlighting a modder on this blog for that very reason.

 

It's a great idea to not curate anything that doesn't have a price-tag. Many legal + copyright issues are in the gray area and companies might not actually care too much (i.e not send lawsuits or not send Cease + Desist Letters) b/c nobody is making money off anything here. Free-modders can base their free-mod off other free-mods b/c everything here is free; they just site what they use in the Credits in a Readme or in the actual mod in-game. If a mod-breaks b/c of an update - it just won't work; no money lost b/c none spent by the consumers. That's why free-mods worked like they did.

 

Things can really change incredibly when there's a price-tag attached to things. With such a Wild Wild West approach and anyone can sell a mod, things like copyright infringement becomes much more serious and less gray area, when someone is actually profiting here. Things can go wrong big-time, when money's involved - people can take other's/others' works and sell it as their own; when paid modders create a mod based off and using other modders works' they now have to get permission and/or pay the other modder; modder should update the $-mod if the base-game updates to break the mod b/c the consumer paid for the mod to work; and other madness.

Translation:

Payment Feature Will Be Added To Something Else.

 

 


We understand our own game's communities pretty well, but stepping into an established, years old modding community in Skyrim was probably not the right place to start iterating.

 

Translation:

We at Valve do realize we should've tried this crap on a new franchise, where there's no modding history.

 

 


We think this made us miss the mark pretty badly, even though we believe there's a useful feature somewhere here.

Translation:

Too soon. Don't worry - we'll find a way to monetize modding, somehow + some way, in due time.

Some people #fakeybro certain things or will spend more than usual on games of a certain genre, from a certain company, certain franchise, etc.

You like racing - and that's your #fakeybro thing.
