I just wrapped up playing through the story mode of this demo myself. It's about an hour long and a ton of fun. I highly recommend it, especially if you're looking for a cool, retro-inspired ARPG to play on PC.

While there was plenty of backlash in relation to the whole "paid Skyrim mods" situation, I don't think anyone is really against modders getting compensated for hard work. It's just that the system Valve had set up was horrible. Sure, it didn't survive long enough to "iron out the kinks", but most of those "kinks" are ones that should've been ironed out before launch. Overall what we've got here is an example of a fantastic idea that was executed very, very poorly. 

I think putting up a paywall between mods and gamers was a bad idea. It could've worked if it was a tip jar style donation though. Keeping mods free but giving gamers a way to support their favorite modders is a much better idea. There's not a uniform and convenient platform on Steam to do that with as far as I know. That could be a great model if executed correctly. The "paid mods" program that Valve tried to go with had a ton of flaws, and I think the most important issue of them all was stated by Steam user and modder FilthyCasual (nice username btw): 
"You have now divided PC consumers and modders, when we used to be a pretty tight bunch."

I am fully for modders making some money off the mod the problem I have is the fact most mods rely on other mods to work. So I can't see how this will work especially since only a handful of mods were allowed to be pay for at the start.

If I get an Xbox One I'll probably get this. Halo 5 is the only real reason I want an Xbox One right now anyway.

Alright, so I'm planning on building a PC for the first time over the summer, and I thought I'd share what I've got so far as for what parts I plan on getting.

I know that as a gaming PC this thing is overkill, and I'm spending way more money than I'd need to if I were only going to be using this thing for gaming. However, I'm a film student who produces videos and I need a computer that can handle the intense editing and special effects I do, hence the i7 processor when an i5 would do just fine for most gaming. 

Anyways, I thought there might be some members of the community who'd be interested in this. You can find the part list below.

I'm going with 16GB right now mostly to stay within my budget. I'll be bumping it up to 32 as soon as I can. I'll just have to live with things being a little slower than I'd like them to be until then. And 16 should be more than enough for my gaming needs anyway. The only reason I need 32 is because of my video editing.

Bad news for those looking forward to Silent Hills: It's been canceled. It sucks, but isn't entirely unexpected given recent events. 
Looks like the pending delisting of P.T. was a bad omen after all. According to a quote procured by photojournalist Matt Hackney at a recent...

I actually just got informed this article misconstrued what the person was saying and is not accurate. We still don't know if Silent Hills is happening or not.

So there is hope, just not much of it.

FFXIV re-imagined as a fighting game by the main scenario writer. This video was made by the FF team for fun and isn't an actual game, but it's still pretty cool to see what a Final Fantasy XIV fighting game would look like! I kind of want it to happen for real now...

Wooooah. Valve and Bethesda have decided to cancel their paid mods scheme for Skyrim. Mod buyers will be refunded.

I'm sorry ... did Bethesda really say they listened to the complaints ?

Does that mean that their next game will be free of horrible bugs and crashes too ?

Because as much as I liked Skyrim having it crash every once in a while was seriously annoying.

Even Valve has bigger fish to fry such as the 'early access' crap and overall lack of quality control and customer friendly features in their store front.

As someone who's completely lost interest in Call of Duty, even I have to admit that from this trailer Black Ops 3 looks pretty cool, albeit unoriginal. But it's not like we were expecting originality from CoD anyway. I'm sure this game will be fun for fans of the series, but it's just not enough to get me into it again. I haven't bought a Call of Duty game since the first Black Ops, and I don't think I'll be grabbing this one either. No matter how cool or fun a CoD game is when it first comes out, I just get bored of CoD too fast for me to justify buying another one.
