I want modders to get some money for their work. As a creative professional myself I know the time, dedication and talent that goes into something like that. Though I hate Valves approach to all this. 75 percent! come on valve! On top of that the modders get that cash to be used in steam wallet only.
Reminds me of an old song, "sixteenth tons what do I get another day older and deeper in debt, Saint Peters don't you call me I can't go, I sold my soul to the company store." An old American folk song
This is not nearly as bad as miners only being able to buy items from the company they worked for creating an endless loop of dependency and poverty. Though if I was a talented modder that wanted to turn this in a business I think Id look else where.
Steam seems to use the spaghetti approach for a lot of things; throw it at the wall see if it sticks. I just hopes this doesn't stick this way.
I enjoy Alex and wish to see more quick looks with his intelligence and pessimistic since of humor. Vinny is great too though I much prefer them doing the content together. Vinny is upbeat and seems to enjoy breaking the game he is playing. I feel Alex helps to keep him on task.
I wish they had better games to review/quick look threw. From the ones I have watched they seem to get the bottom of the barrel games.
On a side note: I think Hello Kitty Island adventures, would be great for them to make a video about.
All of seen about Android is that it is used for phone and Mobile devices. Is it built to handle the types of games I expect to play on a counsel? I like the idea of having a counsel being open to the modding community, counsels are built to ward away any types of changes made by the user, that is bigger then changing their wallpaper.
Though unless the new counsel is very easy to play around with (mod) or quickly forms a community of people making useful and fun additions to this- which might be the case, seeing the kick starter success it's getting- then it might provide a 'bad boy' alternative to the current market.
It looks interesting, though I'm not going to be beating down old ladies using strollers at the Walmart when it comes out. I loved the Wii when it came out though that's before I started Gaming. Except for the hardware, I'm not interested in what they are offering.
The only reason I would be interested in the hardware is because it's different. I'm sure after a few hours I will be looking for a regular controller.
Yet again I'm not the audience they really want to impress. As this tech gets more and more advanced and starts to take over more and more areas of our lives, from health (WII Fit) to watching Media (Hulu and Netflix streaming services) we are going to have to find a new name for all of this. They are not trying to appeal to just Nintendo fans or Hardcore Gamers, they want Mom Dad and yes, even Grandma! I'm sure families will have a a ball with it. Dad can chase his children around with an expensive piece of technology instead of going outside and playing hide and go seek.
You might as well play the first two games. It has been awhile since I touched them so I can't say if their worth your time or not. Though if you enjoyed the third one might be worth it to see where that game came from.
Nothing wrong with playing a great game, over and over. Once you bet it the first time and got a 100 percent of the achievements, doing it on the other systems should of been easier (you know where all the goodies are and your well practiced at beating the 'bad guys'). You probably replayed the game because you liked it, and replaying it brought you back to a familiar time and activity you like doing.
I played Red Dead Redemption to death, now I'm doing the same to Skyrim.
