I have to agree. When I returned Stateside from Europe last Summer, I enrolled in a subsidized ACA plan for my small family. We pay almost 700 per month not particularly affordable with an annual deductible of 13,000. That doesn 't protect me at all. It really only protects the ...

When Mr. Dale insisted I edit my article in 2013 to quote him as saying that they did not adjust the play experience based on whether a player was a payer or not, the practice of doing this was already industry standard. While he was claiming that King was exceptional ...

How is Valve going to make an example of this I can make an example of this, but I can 't prevent this user from doing what they are doing, and Steam can 't either unless they change their system. This user is operating within current Steam guidelines. I see ...

This article seems to imply that King.com is no longer feeling squeamish just quiet about using dynamic monetization techniques: r n r nhttp://venturebeat.com/2017/01/25/activisions-king-quietly-acquires-analytics-firm-omniata/ r n r n Then it targets those who pay or don t pay with different kinds of incentives to encourage them to spend more. Omniata is ...

From the description, it sounds like one or both participants were too incapacitated to give consent. Sex without consent raises the possibility of rape. The game even gives the option of asking if they were drugged when the pills are discussed. Are you suggesting this is a fantasy game about ...

Kojima 's opinion seems very retail-centric. Perhaps in order for retail to stay competitive with free to play games, it will need to bring even more value by combining various forms of media. I personally think that F2P will just continue to bring ever increasing amounts of value at the ...

The movie campaign has certainly been successful, and Disney was smart in acquiring the Star Wars and Marvel IP 's in order to perpetuate their cradle to grave media dominance. So far the game applications of these IP 's have left me a bit wanting. I see a new Star ...

While I 've been predicting this crunch in the F2P mobile market for some time now I describe it as the mobile F2P extinction event , I should also point out that Goodgames is a huge advocate of data driven design. I 'm very critical of data driven design, I ...

I 've spent about 90 of my gaming career almost 20 years now working remotely. It 's worked out pretty well for me. This is like 180 degrees in the opposite direction. I 'm not sure what the opposite of remote is, but this is it. If I could live ...

While a genre-oriented classification has some value, wouldn 't it make sense also to categorize games by what the player does in those games SW:TOR is a very different game from EVE Online, for example. EVE is one of the cruelest games I 've ever played. I enjoyed it briefly, ...
