Monetary losses and public relation losses... companies lost quite a bit this week.By Marlowe Ethos - 1 month ago
putting a $15 a month investment into a game for 5 years is a lot of money for a game that will eventually shut down leaving you with nothing to show and a lot of money GONE. Many games try to make the complaint that the money is for upkeep of the servers and to pay a bunch of people to maintain the game but that doesn't really make sense since most of these games like WOW in its prime earned over 5 million dollars a month which is enough to run the game for 2 years on 1 months take. They just milk their customers dry and try to please only one specific type of customer like pvp players or grinding gamers that just like to level up. Most never put in end game content for the level capped players unless it pvp and most dungeon and adventurers are left wanting more and are forced to either change games or grind a new character through the same quest for leveling.
I can understand games like Guild Wars are made for pvp players but there are games that call themselves MMORPG's that have little or no story at all with 1 set path and no real content to them which actually want to charge monthly fees to play.
Games like the new Tera are actually well thought out and put together well but they want to charge for the game disc AND monthly fees which I think are too much. I would pay a 1 time $100 to buy that game if it was free to play afterward no question but I will not pay the $15 a month for it because I believe that supports lazy development they let a game float fixing small bugs and issues without adding new content or developing any expansions without CHARGING for each new expansion which is just overkill with that $15 a month fee.
I wish game developers would learn a lesson and get with the modern gamers wants and needs, get past the greed and get with the quality in your products.
Suggestion: Overlay game names on video, or put info in show notes listing all games shown.
However, in all my negativity, I do agree the events are a nice touch, even if they are not anything that stand.
Good show. A little longer but worth it.Keep it up,
Was thinking about the Torchlight 2 preorder for a beta key to Neverwinter.
My thought from a marketing side, ( I have not seen the box yet besides a few google pics)
But if they have it also advertised on the box,This in my eyes is a decent marketing ploy to " KEEP " players with your company.Sort of a subliminal message that when your done with the beta test (bored)
by the time Torchlight is released and you beat it , Neverwinter will be Open beta. Most players that are fans will pay for that little extra gameplay for a week or so then dive into Torchlight and back to Neverwinter.
Question of the week.
In my game room when i know i am going on a long gameplay spree, microwave and mini fridge are right beside me in hands reach. Pizza Pockets and coke for those 10+ hours , Oh and i fogot my pee bottle lmao or was i joking ? !
Only the bottle know's ....
Thanks for another fine episode, You had me worried since its saturday that you were not putting one out this week.
Peace till next week !
Love the podcast, cant wait for more!
