    @Blue & @StreetKid: Just got back from vacation.

    @StreetKid: No, no. I left Friday, got back Monday. Went to California for a language workshop thing.

  5. Welcome back from your vacation, Ian!

    NOW GO GET HARRISON'S MIND DONE, NOW!!! Just kidding. Take your time to finish the first episode of Harrison's Mind.

    Also, the new DLC called "The Sacrifice" for both L4D and L4D2 had recently been released. Go download it if you haven't.

    Ok, I was really confused for a second there.

  8. @StreetKid: Just like previous Left 4 Dead DLCs, it will be free on the PC but it will cost on the Xbox 360 with 560 MS points.

  9. @Rallinale Survival for l4d on the Xbox 360 was free. Me and my friends downloaded it on Live.

  11. @StreetKid: Oh sorry, I thought the Survival Pack cost on the Xbox 360. My bad.

    But still, "The Sacrifice" is free on the PC and cost on the Xbox 360.

  12. Np. But damn. I hate having to pay for upgrades! It is total Bulls**t!

  13. @Kid: Yeah, who pays people for their work these days?

  14. "@Kid: Yeah, who pays people for their work these days?"

    That's not the point. If I pay $60 for a game. I expect the whole freaking game! And if there are to be modifications to said game. Then they should be free. Cuz the game should be bug free anyway.

  15. When have they ever charged for bug fixes? If it's something they originally promised would be in the game then sure, you can expect it to be free but where's the rule written that expansions have to be free?

    ReplyDelete
  16. @Ian: How long is it going to be?

  17. "but where's the rule written that expansions have to be free?"

    I can understand expansions. Depends on what you define as an expansion or not. But stuff like maps and critical story levels(Assassin's Creed 2) you know. I want my entire freaking game. You may not agree, but hey, we all have our opinions.

  18. any luck on Barneys mind? I've been waiting...

  19. I mean you JUST took one like a month ago.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Two months ago and so? I'm totally allowed to take vacations back to back. Besides, both of them were only an extended weekend and I hadn't taken a vacation for like 5 months prior to the last one.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Don't be hatin' because you're not taking vacations. I personally wouldn't say no to going on another road trip.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Wow, I agree, that map from XKCD is awesome. BTW, check out the circuit diagram one linked at the bottom, if you haven't seen it.

  23. "Anything that is put up as dlc is pretty much just a way of making you buy your games one piece at a time. In most cases it could have just been released as part of the game. I would rather not pay $60 for a game, then pay another $20 or more for what should have been included with the game in the first place. They do this because they know that if they mark up the game to $80 and include the content right off the higher price will turn people off of the game, so by breaking it up it makes it seem like it is not as expensive. It is just a trick to boosting profits. Greedy bastards..."

  24. You do know that, inflation-wise, games are cheaper than they've ever been.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I don't they've cost $60 or $80 in the past. No I have to say they are still damn expensive.

    ReplyDelete
  26. You mean "I doubt"?

    In any case, if you adjust for inflation Sonic the Hedgehog 2 would have cost $75 in today's money and most NES games were $50 to $80 in today's money.

    So, yes, games have gotten cheaper and those games were made by 12 people in a small office where today's games are made by giant corporations with hundreds of people.

    Honestly though, if it really bothers you then vote with the only vote that counts, your wallet. If you don't like the game prices then don't buy the game.

  27. Wow, that map you showed was awesome! Well done, XKCD!

  28. "If you don't like the game prices then don't buy the game."

    I don't.

    "In any case, if you adjust for inflation Sonic the Hedgehog 2 would have cost $75 in today's money and most NES games were $50 to $80 in today's money."
