Why The Skyrim Mod Charges Are A Terrible Idea In Steam

skyrim-creationkit-steamworkshop-forblog_v2

Earlier today, Bethesda and Valve made a move to alter the current community modding mechanism in Valves Steam distribution platform. That change has enabled modders to set a charge for their mods if they so choose to. On paper, this seems like a great idea, content creators will be able to release a mod and then make some money off of their creations. Below I talk about why I think that this is a bad decision. We’ve seen some success for ideas like this before in games like Second Life, which is almost entirely player economy driven. However, in this case, I think that this system creates a terrible precedent for gamers that like mods, and the people creating mods … Continue reading

Battlecry Hands-On Impressions – PAXAus 2014

battlecry-banner-paxaus

  Battlecry is the flagship game from Battlecry Studios and is published by Bethesda Softworks. Battlecry is a multiplayer action game that feels a lot like a brawler mixed with a hack-and-slash style game. If you can think of something like God of War mixed with Team Fortress, you’d have a similar kind of game in mind for how Battlecry looks while playing. At Penny Arcade Expo Australia this year, we had an opportunity to go hands-on with the title thanks to Bethesda and the developers at Battlecry Studio. In this match, it was 8 players vs. 8 players, but the full version at release is expected to handle 16 vs. 16 players. The game of Battlecry has a nice … Continue reading
