Valve announced today that their digital gaming service Steam will now support in-game downloadable content for its library of games. Yes, PC gamers, now you too can be charged for another hour or two of gameplay.
This is a dark day for pc gaming. 1 step closer to console gaming BS
......so much for the wallet rape subsiding. Thanks DLC.
I'm afraid Devs will be much less likely to release modding tools in the future. "We have no plans to support modding, but don't worry, we have plenty of add-ons planned for the future. [We'll even provide a complimentary bottle of Vaseline.]"
Bottle of Vaseline,hmm...i guess it's not going to hurt as much XD
I don't think the mod support will end. Who will fix all the broken games PC developers always release, or where will they get their ideas from. At least if they do stop mods then Bethesda can stop making broken games and Valve can come up with their own ideas.
If people stopped making mods, where would developers get their game ideas? Just like you said.
LOL at proxy
My last safe heaven has been Steam for years.... and now....it's been taken away from me.
This really had nothing to do with Valve, besides them catering to the wishes of the publishers who use Steam to distribute their games. DLC for Valve games will, in my opinion, stay free. The company from the article that is charging for DLC....I've never heard of them or played their games, so it's no big deal to me.
Yeah, Valve is just adding third-party DLC support to Steam, which is something the majority of Steam users have been asking for instead of having to go through EA or GFW (damn MS points) outside of the Steam system. This is an added feature for DLC that is already charged for, something Valve wouldn't do for their own games, but now that they can broaden their feature set on the store.
Right, there's no indication that Valve's going to start charging for their DLC.
