Apperantly you don't understand how PC gaming works. Charging for custom content in a game is what shitty console gamers do because they are desperate and don't know what moddable content is. Also because publishers and corperations have the console gaming market by the balls. *cough*Microsoft*cough*

Sing that one note loud and proud because god forbid you should contribute a comment that wasn't typed while frothing at the mouth and have people take you seriously.

Get a grip, i'm telling the truth. I just approach the topic in a rather different manner that you don't agree with.

Traditional thinking says: "You monetize investments by charging for them." But, he reveals, when Valve gives away it's content, sales spike for several products, both at retail and through Steam.
Maybe you'll learn to read the article next time before you start flaming? Obvious troll is obvious.

*facepalm* This shit really, really irks me.

TF2 is a horrible example for this. The classes aren't 'extra' content, they are required for the game to have any sort of balance at all.

Of course that isn't really the point here..

I got in some huge argument with him in some comment thread a couple of months ago. Sometimes (rarely) I like what he says, but most of the time he's just an asshat.
