Very cool that you are developing mobile games smile.gif IMHO that is where the market is heading.


True but consoles are far from dying out. It's just a separate way of playing that becomes more attractive with better mobile hardware.

Mobile games can be freemium (free to get then pay to get add ons). Which is a production model that seems to work well for mobile games smile.gif


That's THE way to market any mobile game at the moment and will be in the near future. We do the same, basically every big player in the market does it. It took some getting used to, coming from pay-once games, but it just works so well on mobile. I don't have the current numbers but at least some years ago the largest percentage of players (>= 90%) weren't paying a single penny for freemium games. But you could comfortably live and grow from the rest because some of them spend an absurd amount of money in those games. Sometimes you are like "why do they do that?" but I won't complain because they pay for my job tongue.gif
One downside is that there is a huge amount of players spamming the forums with complaints about what the game should do, how shitty it is etc. etc. while not having paid anything for it. Players are getting used to take it for granted that games are just there for free and that they have some kind of right to dictate how it should behave. Everyone is welcome to share their opinions but sometimes it's really gross what those people demand.

Here is my last game, it took me 3 years (WAY TOO LONG) to make, but it's 100% my work done in my free time. It was definitely too ambitious,


Cool! I own no Apple devices so I will try to check it out on Monday with one of our company devices.
It's getting harder and harder to make a game on your own these days but apparently you did and that's a great feat! Being too ambitious is pretty normal, that's why most free-time projects fail. But (without having seen the game yet), since you didn't fail I'd say the ambition was just about right smile.gif

I hear ya! It's heading the same direction as music in a way, where folks sorta expect "free games", then they only start spending once they are "IN GAME" and need some upgrade to a weapon or something smile.gif Such is life eh? Still, it would be tough to listen to all the complaints when the game was free smile.gif

I recently rented TITAL FALL II as mentioned and CALL OF DUTY INFINITE WARFARE. I enjoyed the campaign on both! But I will NOT be keeping/buying either one. Once Titan fall goes down to $5 or something, I"ll pick it up like I did Titan 1. But I"m not paying 50 bux. that's why I rent games these days. So I can play through them and see if I want to buy them when they get cheap. For the price of a few pricey games, I could get a decent used guitar! So I'm a confirmed "renter" on PS4 games.

Anyone else play BATMAN ARKHAM KNIGHT? I'm not a huge super hero game fan, but got started on this one and the moody/cinematic/dark vibe of the world is just darn cool smile.gif Ended up playing quite a bit of it. Here is one grab from my PS4 where Batman gets to manhandle scarecrow a bit. (very spiff bad guy designs in game imho). Big finish car jump at the end smile.gif

I've never been a fan of any of the FF games, but I'll give the new one a try is there is a demo smile.gif They always felt a bit too Nintendo somehow, but that's just me. It's a legendary franchise so it's certainly got it's own value and a HUGE fan base.

I did really enjoy the INFINITE WARFARE campgaign in the recent Call of Duty release. Here is a vid direct from my PS4.

Both my Bassbreaker and Helix are mailed off for repairs right now, so I've been taking a bit of a guitar break. The VSTs just aren't as inspiring to play through. So... I finally got to revisit my Steam library and have started playing Legend of Grimrock. It's pretty awesome so far and it's the first game I've tried to use the Steam controller with, working pretty great. I try not to use the mouse too much when gaming because it makes my wrist sore. I also got this indie game, Enhanced Elections, last night because the concept was so great it's a really clever game too.

Been wanting to try Legend of Grimrock for a big while now, I used to play old D&D dungeon crawlers games, so ye! I really want to do it somewhere in the future.

But as if now I've been playing some Pillars of Eternity.

I'm interested in Pillars of Eternity too, it just hasn't dropped to my <$10 price point (that I know of). I usually wait for the Steam sales and get stuff on the cheap. It's so much better coming from the PS3, the content on PC is virtually infinite. I just got Legend of Grimrock II from the Humble Bundle, you might want to check out the current sale, you can get it for as low as $1.00 TIS-100 and Infinifactory are awesome too, I love Zachtronics games though.

I'm a Mac guy so my gaming is done pretty much on the PS4. I usually try to rent the big titles as they come out smile.gif Usually they are just to pricey to buy, but red box let's you rent them for the weekend for 6 bux. This is a good example of cut scene and game play on the start of infinite warfare. The graphics really were amazing and there was emotional connection to the characters for once.

Also it's very easy to take screen grabs on PS4 and xbox, you just hit one button and it uploads it to youtube.

Damn, graphical wise the game looks amazing, but i am easy to impressed biggrin.gif, considering the fact i am still stuck in 2000-2008.
I am gonna be honest though. I have never played any CoD game tongue.gif.

The graphics are amazing on PC or PS4/Xbox1. Here is some standard FPS play in COD infinite warfare. They manage to combine every type of combat you can think of from space battle to dog fight to fps /etc. It's a killer campgaign. Worth at least a rental smile.gif here is another vid fresh from the tap of my PS4. It's the entire ending sequence where our Hero meets his glorious end. Spoilers!



Peace to the fallen.


Todd

Gday All,
I was always into PC Open World MilSims. I stopped playing COD after COD II.
Massive fan of Battlefield 2 through to Bf4 but havent played Bf1 yet and probably won't as I just don't have the time anymore.
I was very heavily (understatement) involved with ArmA II -ArmA III core platform and Mods for a long time.

ArmA II DayZ/Epoch:
I played this Mod for god knows how long and just thousands of hours. Myself and a small group of like-minded work mates at the time built a huge community and ran 4 servers in Australia.So much fun but hard work all the same.

ArmA III: When I think about it now I had a serious addiction to this particular game.I helped out (code building/scripting) in many communities with many mods using the A3 Engine.One of my favorite Mods was and still is "The Eridanus-Insurrection" a great multiplayer faction military simulator with some of the best ingame modelling that I have ever seen.
Good times laugh.gif

Added some old screenshots from IE

You might like the MAD MAX Game smile.gif IT's HUUUUUUGE and open world. I got drawn in and paid top dollar for the download. It's sooooo big in fact, I'm saving it for later when I have more time!

Anyone Playing BATTLEFIELD 1? It's a first person shooter based in world war I. I love it smile.gif The online mode is way fun.

MY GAMER TAG IS Ibanezrg7620 on the playstation network (Named after my fave 7 string of course)

Here is a recent game smile.gif

FINALLY!!!!


After much blood, sweat, and tears, I FINALLY beat the last boss level in BORDERLANDS THE PRE SEQUEL. This boss resurrects herself 3 times. Each one worse than the last. The battle is so long that one PS4 capture won't contain it all but here is the last 15 minutes of the non stop battle and the final cut scene. So you can skip to the end to see the cut scene smile.gif It sets up the Borderlands Story.
