Wow... popcap was bought by EA... I was expecting for Plants vs zombies 2... Now I know it may be terrible...
Hmmm.... no..... not that I know of, at least... The way I understand this, is that as it is right now, you have to buy the whole game to play the multiplayer, but they intend to have the multiplayer available for free, so you don't have to buy the game to play it, and you'll have to buy the game for the single player.
Oh no....please don't have that game get a E+10 rating....also someone I know will be interested in knowing that SC2 tidbit.
Sadly, F2P is the way of the future, with no true strong income guarantees anymore from AAA thanks to the large amount of cheap games and piracy, micro-transactions are about the only way to make money anymore in gaming. Sad but true.
EA doing what it does best.
well if they actually DO do the 10 cents a zergling thing... it really WILL put a damper on Zerg Rushes XD
Jared really hates those Zerg-rushes.
*thinks about Jared's Idea* Today, Korea. Tomorrow, THE WORLD!
ten cents for every zergling?........ how will I eat?
Jared, I love you. But seriously: don't ever give Blizzard ideas again.
Jared just found a way to level the playing field in Starcraft 2. Talk about Pro.
wait wait wait wait...you have to pay extra to play Starcraft 2's multiplayer mode(s)?
StarCraft 2 FREE TO PLAY?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??!?!?!?! NOOBS!!!!!!!!!!! NOOBS EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had a feeling about the Bayonetta 2 thing. I remember hearing something about SEGA cutting down on games due to not making as much money. I'm asuming anything that's not sonic will have trouble being published by SEGA right now. I was suprised this game was announced on any platform.
GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!! DX WHY DID YOU HAVE TO DO THAT?!?! THAT WAS PAINFUL! PAINFUL, I TELL YOU!!! *punches*
jeez, kinda slow news day huh?
How do you stop a Korean Zerg Rush from Charging? You you take away their creditcard. XD
Now THAT is what i call balancing XD
10 cents every Zergling? There goes Korean economy
so me buying starcraft 2 is still justified and i don't feel ripped off? i only like the campaign portion of the game because the thought of running into a korean online is like running into a mugger in an alley. it won't end well
Lots of surprising moves lately in the industry.
