Pro: fans making mods can get paid for their hard work

Con: Sucks the core right out of the idea of the "modding community", which was all about labors of love to make their games better and more expansive.

Raph Koster has been offering up behind the scenes info on SWG for the past...while...and it's as fascinating as you'd expect (if you're into finding out how things worked, and the processes behind them).

But it's also pretty damaging: reading about what was lost when SWG shut down, and magnified by what they wanted to do, but couldn't, due to technological or business issues brings up that time honored tradition of the "What If MMO".

So many exciting ideas never made it to fruition, and I doubt we'll ever get to see them, even though the tech has changed significantly since the SWG days. 
Last time, I talked about the basic skill and economic infrastructure that Star Wars Galaxies provided. Fundamentally, these were about equality. They made the different roles played by players hav...

Maybe we all jumped the gun when we first laughed at the 80s vision of a neon-drenched, blue-haired future.

"Off The Beaten Trail" - Finding a hidden cave in #Wildstar is a reward for exploration.

It's pretty end-game focused, and I've recently received assurances that there's a LOT of people who are doing the end-game content. In the areas I'm in currently, there's a handful of people here and there, but the population seems to pick up the further I go. 

IF the game does announce F2P/B2P, I suspect that the population would increase, if history is any indication.

And another thing!

Sites that link to themselves, like when you click on a game's title, and only see more news about that game, and don't offer a dedicated link to actually get to the website of the project they're talking about.

That was part of why I stopped reading them. If I read an article then have to Google because not a single one of their umpteen links per article provide any actual goddamn information, then why don't I just Google to begin with and cut out the middleman?

Real question: Will it use punkbuster, and will PB suck as hard as it usually does.
