    Bran and Arya don't have much more written about them so they'll have to start making things up or put them on hold. There's a bit more for Arya as she lets go of her identity, but nothing very...

    Also, from that blog post:



    Are those total numbers or people who downloaded mods through the workshop? How much of the PC audience is that?

    Skyrim had sold well over 20 million copies two...

    A couple of points about the revenue split and the nature of modding vs. regular software development. From software developers who have come out in favour of this system there are a couple of...

    Possibly, though there is the problem that I'd need to feel confident beforehand that it was worth it. A donation system would be a far more palatable option here, not least because I certainly...

    Same here. My buying any future Bethesda game now hinges on waiting to see if it looks like the open modding scene will survive this intact, which probably won't be a terrible thing for me as that'll...

    Actual plot beats don't seem to stray very far from the books so far, it's just that a lot of characters have been merged or shuffled around to replace other minor characters.

    A week in, and here are some things I've found fun/helpful so far.

    Duolingo has been very helpful for acquiring some basic grammar and vocabulary and the option to check comments on specific...

    I'm not a COD-man, but good! Shame the reveal trailer and screenshots focused almost entirely on firm-buttocked dudebros (remember when Bioware marketing pretended FemShep didn't exist for 2/3 of the...

    This observation by Jake Rodkin is relevant to the shift in perception we're seeing, in a heartbreaking kind of way.

    I see this over and over, but it's not really a compelling argument since everyone who has ever made a mod for a bethesda game has done so with the full knowledge that they won't get monetary...

    The same is true of the latter books, so I suppose you can say they're staying faithful to the source material.

    Cost them a million in what, work hours? Did they hire people to answer emails? Put other things on hold? And sure Skyrim won't generate huge piles of cash, it's old and has a huge library of free...

    In the Real Racing example I still don't see why money needs to be involved as a gating mechanic. If you enjoy it then more power to you, I'm not looking to take anything away from anyone.

    I can't help but feel that if anyone should be paying Skyrim modders it ought to be Bethesda. They are after all the only ones who have been making tonnes of money off mods the last couple of...

    And I think people should be allowed to hang themselves if they really want to, but anyone manipulating others to suicide to benefit their rope selling business is a massive arschgesicht.

    And how does the involvement of money make either of those things better?

    I don't think anyone is arguing that F2P games can't be fundamentally good games, but I can't think of a single such game where a) microtransactions make it better in any way, or b) microtransactions...

    Star Wars has been dead for so long that it's hard to work up any enthusiasm for it, even though that trailer looks very nice and shiny. Still, this should be an easy job for Disney/Abrams; as long...
