10 bucks and new l4d stuff and gears of war 3 delayed -sadface-

as a avid gamer and as someone that would like to work in the industry someday i like to keep on top the news.  and well i'm sure most of you have heard of project 10 dollars. its EA answer to the used games market. i think its a really dumb idea. the whole point of the used game market is trade ins. if anything they're hurting themselves.  and from what i've read used games retailers would just adjust the resell price to reflect the 10 bucks or so needed to offset the  cost of having to buy the new "code"  let me explain for those who don;t know. project 10 dollars is a program EA started with tis games where it would include a code that allows players to access certian online content. like BFBC2 for example. it came with a vip code. which allowed player to get the new "vip" maps. but if you bought the game used you only get the maps it comes with and you'd have to pay about 15 bucks for ta new vip code(at least thats the price on the 360). Mass effect 2 was the 1st game to start with these codes.  i believe ubisoft announced they  will be following suit, but i'm not totally sure about that.

but on to some good news L4D and L4D2 is getting a new campaign story called the sacrifice. i'm actually excited about this one. i'm not sure how its gonna work since both are getting the story. and its about 4some from L4D1. but either way i'm excited about it and you get to see louis and zoe handling a katana. intrigued yet? all i know aobut the story is its about the original cast and their adventures in the south. but the trailer is really epic and it comes out on the 5th. also here is a link to the trailer on kotaku

lol watch the trailer and marvel at how badass bill is XD  also if you played L4D2 you'll remeber bill wasn't there in the passing. so i think this might be the story behindit. but you never know right? and lastly as usual its free for mac and pc users but will cost 360 users

 lastly i wanna talk about the delay on gears of war 3. i mean talk about lame. they're delaying it 5 months just to make it a holiday release.. i mean seriously why not just announce it like that in the 1st place right? it makes me mad mostly cause i hate waiting and i've been waiting for forever since i heard about the 4 player coop story mode. well as sad as i am i'm glad i got to play it during SDCC.  now i just need saints row 3 to come out XD

well i'm not posting links today but some pics of that i believe to be easily the funniest essay i ever read

  1. Well, that new L4D campaign got me to do what it intended to, get me to reinstall L4D and start eying up L4D2

  2. I see why people are complaining about this new habit of attempting to neuter the used video game sales market but I understand why their doing it. The companies making the games make absolutely ZERO dollars off of a used game. Yeah okay trade ins are a good point but I'd actually like to see some statistics that looked into it as an actual factor because I have a feeling that it doesn't make much of a difference.

  4. ...tubgirl.com? Really?

    The fact that we tolerate a system where we do not own the content, the physical media, that we pay for, disgusts me. The right to re-sell something you own, in it's entirety, should not be something they should be able to step around on.

    yet another case of "people bending over and taking abuse we could easily avoid by refusing to play the game"

  15. @austin while i totally agree with you that the companies aren't making any money on the used gaming market but if you think about it its like them wanting to get paid twice for the game.
    and trading is the basis of the used game market. it took what we were doing in the 80's and early 90's with a few friends and took to the whole gaming community. yea so people like gamestop are making a profit out of it but thats just business. thats kinda like holywood getting mad at netflix.

    and its just as simple as drackar says (to paraphrase him at least) you don't have to support them if you don't agree with their policies. i don't plan on supporting EA anymore.

    as for l4d i would love to play with some of you guys so add me on steam if thats where you play it. my s/n is hunterwolfgara its also my 360 gamertag
