• Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Modder added Pop-up Advertising in popular mod.. on the Steam board

    @koolaid: Yeah, I agree with you that creators have the moral right to do whatever they want with their stuff (and I was getting confused about the difference betwen releasing to the public domain, an...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Modder added Pop-up Advertising in popular mod.. on the Steam board

    @tuxfool @joshwent: Yeah, you guys are right. I'm getting confused - if you release something as "public domain" you give up all rights to take it back out of the public domain, even if you want to -...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Modder added Pop-up Advertising in popular mod.. on the Steam board

    @koolaid: Except it sort of does belong to society at large after you've released it for free. Or rather - that's the default position for intellectual property. Once you release it to the public doma...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Modder added Pop-up Advertising in popular mod.. on the Steam board

    I feel like poeple should be careful saying that modders "deserve" to be paid. Modders don't "deserve" to be paid for their work any more than players "deserve" free mods. Most people used to make mod...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Steam workshop creators can now charge for their mods.. on the Steam board

    @earthen: Well, the game on sale is £2.50, and some of the pricier mods are £4 for a collection of spells, and £3.35 for a new companion, or for the "wet and cold" mod. If you bought the game right n...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Steam workshop creators can now charge for their mods.. on the Steam board

    @earthen: On the subject of eclipsing the price of the full game, I find it hilarious that to coincide with this "priced mods" thing, steam has put the entire game on sale for £2.50. A lot of the mod...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Steam workshop creators can now charge for their mods.. on the Steam board

    I wonder what proportion of modders will opt to charge for their mods - and I wonder if any previously free mods are being taken off the workshop as I type so that paid-for versions can be put up inst...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic What info should be in a Souls Beginner Guide?. on the General Discussion board

    The big important looking number on every shield is how much damage the shield does when you hit someone with it. The tiny unassuming numbers are the shield's damage mitigation and stability.Seriously...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Will PC games on retail ever switch to blu-ray?. on the Off-Topic board

    As others have said here, even when you buy a retail PC game you're in for a pretty hefty download before you can actually use the thing - the disks seem almost redundant. The only "retail" PC games I...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Worth getting a slim if I have an old school phat?. on the PlayStation 2 board

    I've owned two playstation slims in my time - both bought new (while the PS2 was still current) - and both of them eventually started getting disc read errors, and ultimatley refused to recognise the ...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Why does Final Fantasy XIII exist?. on the Final Fantasy XIII board

    I always thought that the defining feature of Final Fantasy games was how linear and story-focued they were. Sure, about 75% through each game you get an airship and can roam around doing side-stuff,...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Morality Check regarding using Adblock. on the Off-Topic board

    I think the real elephant in the room is that people just don't pay much attention to "low key" ads on the internet. I live in the UK, so my Giantbomb experience isn't as full of intrusive, site-break...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Do video games improve mental capacity? (Article discussion). on the General Discussion board

    @ohnooh: I've never really understood the discussion of dopamine release as causing addiction. Dopamine is released in a whole range of enjoyable activities, right? Isn't the statement "playing videog...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Borderlands 3 is happening it's only a matter of time. on the General Discussion board

    I genuinely found Handsome Jack pretty funny - and I even thought that what they did with his character arc was pretty cool - how he starts off seeming powerful, and ends up just seeming pathetic. And...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Worth Reading: 11/10/2014. on the General Discussion board

    @pyrodactyl: I'm not a massive PS1 JRPG afficionado, but from what I have played, Final Fantasy Tactics and Final Fantasy IX are both amazing - and Valkyrie Profile had some really interesting story i...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Press X to Experience Feelings. on the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare board

    Do Call of Duty games really never try to tug at our hearstrings? I thought it was pretty shocking in the original Modern Warfare, where you fail to stop a nuke from exploding, and your player charact...

    All of the above. Don't make me choose!

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Best Playstation 1/2 Games. on the General Discussion board

    I'll suggest Devil May Cry 3 - it's the best character-action game I've ever played, and no-one in this thread has mentioned it yet. But as you can tell from the responses, there are an awful lot of r...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Personal social views as a central part of a game critique. on the General Discussion board

    Surely it very much depends on the game. I'd want a reviewer to write proportionatley about their thoughts on a game - and if, for whatever reason, their opinions on the game happen to stray into a lo...

  • Immortal_Guy posted a message in the forum topic Yet Another Developer Leaves Their Home Following Harassment. on the Brianna Wu board

    As some others have said, does reporting it widely not encourage this sort of behavior? That's not quite a rhetorical question - I literally can't enter the mind of someone who would post this stuff, ...
