Tis the Season

So as promised this I am going yammer on about seasons in Diablo. I am a massive fan of the how seasons work. While there has been a few teething problems especially around length of the season trying to find that sweet spot. They offer a fresh means of playing through the content available, while offering enough of incentive to get people interested. After the cut I will break down where I feel seasons work and also look at implications of seasons as a style of game content.

Account Wide Everything

With each passing year the amount of content we have to play through increases at the same time the number of alts we run also increases. Are having alts a viable section of available game content? Yet each time we get new content we have to spend the same amount of time to achieve goals that are main has already achieved. Ultimately I think this does not add to game play and the amount of content we have to play through. But in fact detracts from our desire to replay the content multiple times. But fear not Friends there is a solution to our woes, and it even exists in the game right now.

Is there value anymore?

So as mentioned last week my choice for this weeks post is, about how with the current industry trends and the increasing popularity of the gaming market. Are we as gamers being ripped off by both the industry as a whole and invdividual companies to better there profit margins and increase there share holder happyness.

So "Patch" 6.1 is here.......

As promised last week, this week up I am going to attempt to look at patch 6.1 without being uber negative. Suffice to say there is a fair amount of negative feedback floating around the net at the moment. In all honesty while some of it is warranted, 6.1 is not as bad as people make out.

Return #23 and Musings on Crowd Founding

Return number twenty three to the world of blogging. Well maybe not that many but it's been several times that I have stopped writing and left for a extended period of time only to take up the pen many months later. Though this time it has been almost a year give or take. But back I am now and fingers crossed keys to blog should happen every Friday from now on if I can stick to that casual posting schedule.

Money Money Money its a rich mans game!?!

Today I want to babble about cost of gaming, this was brought up by a survey blizzard sent me about micro transactions. Obviously aside from buying the game and paying the subscription, all other charges are completely optional. But what is an acceptable amount to charge people? Should the price of a ten year old game being going down not up? And is there really an issue with micro transactions in a subscription based game? After the break I will attempt to babble coherently on these problems.

Are the Comunity ever happy?

Short answer No, slightly longer answer maybe!?! i have been wanting to blog for a wee while now i have a myriad of ideas swirling around my frontal cortex. Yet when i come to sit at the computer to type them it becomes a chore (thanks dyslexia), that and finding the time recently has been a minor issue. But anyways to start with here goes my thoughts on few rather hot topics that have aggravated the community recently.
