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.

I Love the smell of Speculation in the morning!

So with Blizzconn on its way in a matter of days i have decided to postpone my intended post about pets in favour of some speculation. The build up to Blizzconn always feels very Christmas like to me. Not simply because they both occupy the same general region of the year. The whole you want to know what your going to get, yet if you do find out it spoils the surprise. This year Blizzard have done a grand job of keeping everything under wraps. Though to be honest the only game that has been pre announced is the Wow Expac so technically a lot of stuff has been spoiled. But at the same time its worked well. All i know about the game that formerly was Blizzard All Stars is that it has a new name and logo. I am massively excited just to see what they are going to show us. After the cut i will outline my wish list for things i want to see/hope to see. :)
