Mar 16th 2010 6:22PM Aside from using them as a functional headset, I'd also take the extra speaker covers and place them on my ears when it gets cold outside.
I'm dieing to get my hands on a pair of these for Halo reach. As for the listening, I'm thinking I'd enjoy Wolfmother in surround sound glory.
Dec 11th 2009 11:11PM Knowing that Bioware is putting such an incredible effort behind the story telling elements in this game is very encouraging. I hope Mass Effect 2 does extremely well if only to encourage that effort in other developers.
Mar 24th 2009 4:52PM The original statement said directly "putting time and work into an addon". That's an ADDON. It's not ambiguously stating anyone putting effort towards anything should be rewarded for whatever it is they are doing.
No where in the article does it suggest every addon is worthy of monetary reimbursement. In fact the very last statement ( "if an addon like Recount does charge to go visit another site and get DPS meters, they'll have to make sure it's worth paying that amount rather than just using a free addon") suggests that the author does believe a level of service and quality is required to sustain any addon that would ask it's users pay or donate to continue releasing new versions.
This article is about a blanket statement by blizzard regarding donation policies that are severely limiting every addon developers possible revenue streams. It is not about some kid in a basement looking to monetize and exploit an idea to make all frames a bright green because he finds it aesthetically pleasing.
Surely you can admit that hundreds of hours of code time put into a tool that thousands of people use daily deserves some sort of compensation.
Mar 5th 2009 10:00PM For my professional halo fix I'd much rather watch Major League Gaming's television show, or even just the video on demand matches. They ultimately give away a lot more money as well. Sure the narration is horrible and the effects are cheesy, but I don't expect anything different from this WCG show. WCG has had a pretty shitty track record when it comes to paying their participants, too.
Also, I can watch MLG online. Something tells me that this show isn't going to be aired live or for free.
Yes, all of this is just my guess at how this show will turn out. No, I have nothing but my experiences to support my guesses. I'd love to be wrong and for WCG to become more than a joke to anyone that doesn't play starcraft (Last I checked their only decent money game).
