    The mods that I'd be most likely to pay for are also mods that you wouldn't legally be able to charge for due to other license rights.
  2. Torchlight 2 moved towards shorter range weapons....

    Torchlight 2 moved towards shorter range weapons. One long range weapon (rifle) was removed while two short range guns were added (shotgun, cannon.) Thinking about it, I wonder if weapon range was...

    Some have said that money will drive bigger projects to completion, the kind that currently get really promising and then fall off or get abandoned.

    I don't entirely see that, either.

    Some mods...

    Well, unless you are in charge of MAME. Then you can just illegally change the license, and everyone ultimately goes along with it because the only legal alternative is to throw away years of arcade...
  5. Problem with Gabe's quote is that Valve has...

    Problem with Gabe's quote is that Valve has repeatedly done things that were "stupidly stupid", so that isn't any counter to claims that they've been "stupidly greedy."
  6. Bethesda wants to get paid for not finishing and...

    Bethesda wants to get paid for not finishing and not fixing their game. I'm sure at least some other AAA publishers are already lining up to get in on that kind of action. Getting paid for patches...

    That's not surprising, for two reasons.

    First, it protects customers who have already paid for a mod. The modder cannot just throw a fit and pull his mod, in the process ripping off everyone who...

    Destructoid is reporting that a paid Skyrim mod has already been removed from the Steam Workshop, a fishing mod. It used animations from another person's free mod, and that person objected. (It...

    I've seen elsewhere that Valve confirmed that it takes its regular microtransaction cut for mods, and that the overall split is set by the publisher.

    If the 75/25 split is for Skyrim, then it...

    The Steam page touches on this in the FAQ section. If you see someone else posting your content, Valve's answer is for you to send a DMCA takedown notice.



    Some free mods have supposedly been...

    One could point to Steam Greenlight and Early Access as a counter argument. Yes, people catch on, but skeezy devs can still net a few thousand sales of titles that are not only no better than free...

    I've had uses for it in the past, when trying to figure out which bundle I got a Steam key from, and thus figuring out which other bundles with keys for the same game might be unused and valid.

    The down side is that people really didn't seem to like WWE 2K15. It was raked over the coals worse than previous titles, even by fans.

    The up side is that it sounds like a port of the current...

    Certainly cheerier to read than some of the other Sony emails, like the whole set of exchanges about Ben Affleck and the PBS show "Finding Your Roots". There is some embarrassing stuff in those...

    To be fair, the Xbox One's planned game sharing program sounded like it could have been better. Rather than restrict access to one active game across all accounts, it was going to restrict on a...

    Dungeon Fighter Online relaunch open beta. Like returning to an old friend, except with the dungeons remade to have more interesting enemies and various annoyances fixed. (Yay, the Grappler isn't...

    Frozen Synapse Prime is the made-for-mobile version ported back to PC. It came out to rather mixed, if not primarily negative, response when it was released. Lots of various complaints like how the...

    To be fair, I've spent large amounts of time on things that I wouldn't recommend to others.

    I've spent both large amounts of time and large amounts of money on games as well as other activities...

    It has also racked up a few steep sale discounts over time. It could just be that Torchlight 2 sales have petered out, and Runic prefers quick influxes from bundles to chasing an eternal dwindling...

    If you are willing to go back to PS2 games, there are also Champions of Norrath and its expansion Return to Arms. They were apparently made on an improved version of the Dark Alliance engine.

    What I mostly remember about Torchlight 2 was the lack of meaningful build variety. You could do different builds, but there were only a few optimal builds. There were skills that were so powerful...

    I've complained for quite some time that sticking with classic Diablo-style mouse control has limited how far those games can push action. That control scheme just isn't suited for handling heavy...

    If you remove the boring micromanagement, then people might just decide that your game isn't a 4X game at all. Either that, or they'll complain that the game has been simplified too much.

    100% Orange Juice and Talisman are both heavily luck reliant. I'd only recommend Talisman's PC version to people who fondly remember the original board game (and wouldn't recommend Talisman Prologue...

    From what I've heard, people have set up bots to buy and sell cards, similar to programs that do the same with the stock market. But I'm not sure that I can see the profit of such an exercise, not...
