      I love that you are the one to do this lmao.

      I agree that ad based games could be a bad move. I for one am not okay with joining a game and creating my Orc Barbarian fighting off trolls and on my way back to town I get a loading screen that shows me a 30 second commercial about McDonalds. I do however believe that it wouldn’t be as big of a deal if it only showed it upon logging in or even upon choosing your character. I just think that if you are going to make a game with it’s own, fantasy based, lore you should try to stay to that lore.

      On another note, I could see it on some of the modern based games. Like if Call of Duty decided to create a F2P model of their Modern Warfare series you could make a map where you run through a city with billboards covered in mountain dew and monster energy drink or even the gunnar glasses. Maybe even on a subway level with posters around for other games they have released that are B2P or P2P. I wouldn’t throw the idea out just yet.

      If they did implement ads in a fantasy world however, how do you think they would go about it if it were as simple as a picture ad and not exactly video commercials?

      As always keep up the great work I love watching your show and visiting the website. :D

        Magicman, don’t even….

        As far as ad-supported F2P games, they are already doing that, mostly in browser-based games I think. When I used to play Quake Live, I always had to sit through a Verizon(?) ad before every match. I guess Id was banking on its nostalgia factor to ensure eyeballs on the screen. As for it being successful…who knows? The ironic part is, you can pay to NOT see the ads.

        Lastly, “I wear my Gunnars at night…”

        Yeah, I’m old…

    Hey Magicman. Another great episode. Its good to see you staying busy making content for all us junkies!

    For the contest: I’m willing to truck surf wearing the Gunnars on one of my 16′ box trucks! I’m sure my employees would love to get a chance to throw me off while doing it, so I will have to make my choice of drivers carefully lol.

    Question: What are your thoughts on gamer ADD in the current market? Seems every bounces around a lot without any loyalty to one game.

    RAWRRRRR

    • jardine on October 26, 2012

      Ye I think that is a really good question as well, in the F2P market people to seem to bounce around from game to game bc all they have to do is download it without any commitments. And then they tend to give games bad reviews bc they didnt get to any of the good stuff, new form of trolling I guess -_-

    Oh yeah…speaking of lawsuits, was the one between En Masse Entertainment/Bluehole Studio & NCsoft resolved? There’s sketchy notes about people being guilty and all, but I’m not sure whether that lawsuit has been done and dusted.

    About ads in games, I do think it could be a viable complementary way of earning revenue besides cash shops, but perhaps only when logging in, logging out & maybe even in loading screens (though the latter would definitely be pushing it).

      One more thing, About those glasses. I personnaly would not want them.

      Why : They would not fit over my 3D glasses.And at 49$ for a pair of 3D,That;s just where my gaming has gone to now.
      I only added this for there areAlot of F2P game’s going 3D or already have it implied in the programming.
      Grabbing Tridef’s trial 14 day, then reactivating when expired is 3D cheap and easy.

      But good to see you all are starting to do give away’s, This just ain’t for me even though i am not state side. Eh !

    Magicman About ad supported gaming. Square Enix has made it so you can play Hitman: blood money with ad support. The more ads you watch the more time you get to play the game. http://www.engadget.com/2012/08/29/square-enix-coreonline-offers-top-tier-games-on-the-web-for-free/

    I tried it, it worked pretty well and its easy to “fake it”. I was basically watching TV and played some ads, didn’t even watch any of them and racked up a couple hours of game play. Easy. That’s could be seen as a problem to advertisers when doing this, the game is free because of eyeballs watching the ads and there isn’t a way (unless they make you have your camera on while watching the ads) to prove you watched them.

    I came up with another way to ad support games, but i won’t get into it because I hope to develop it sometime.

      I am East Coast and Sandy made life exciting this week. Thank you for your well wishes. We are all fine and not as impacted as those in NY/NJ are.
      Thanks!

    I would wear them at work, I’m sick of headaches, and maybe they will actually work. Of course when I am gaming, and don’t know, if I like them I will wear them all time, they actually look nice, I like them :D (this is the real thing)
    For the funny one: I would wear them while I sleep so I can see my dreams better :))

    ps: my name is MightVision…. mightVISION…. i am the man that the gunnars deserve, not the one they need. So i will wear them, because i can take them, because i am not a hero.
    I am a loud neighbor, a almost blind gamer,… i am the Dar…. oh i mean… MightVision!
