  1. I agree, art is definitely better when the people making it are starving

     

    I do agree, from a freelancer perspective much like a Youtuber/Streamer, which I was not thinking about earlier; if the market is truly large enough now, its great people could start making decent income doing what they love within the comfort of their home. I hope its somewhat regulated though. Like other people have said, it could be risky to buy some of this stuff and not have it work, or whatever reason.

  2. If money is involved, the whole magic of modding is gone. The freedom of creativity within the community is broken. The workshop here is what gave these games longevity. It expressed the creators talent and expressions. It was a place to start for some, a place to learn for others, etc. Money involved just weakens all of this in my opinion.

     

    Edit: Following up from what Sjonsson and FMPONE said,

     

     

     

    You're dang right it is! Freelancing artists might have a new way to survive in the future!

    Looking forward to see how this plays out.

  3. "That’s our frostbite engine that we’re using, and all the assets that are in the trailer are actually from the game. None of it is fake really. It’s the game’s assets. Of course there are cinematic things we’re doing that is hard to play, but we want to prove that we can make our own trailers in the engine that we’re also making the game for. But we don’t try to trick anyone."

     

    Sounds Promising. Looking forward to seeing that 7 minute gameplay though.

  4. At lunch I finished Season 1 of The Following.

    Not groundbreaking, but it steadily remains at a good level of quality.

    Fair enough for those who like this, but that show is retarded, it makes no sense and is just plain annoying to watch. Quality maybe, but writing is laughable and embarrassingly bad...

    Raiders of the Lost Ark would have proceed the exact same way whether Indiana Jones was in it or not. He does nothing to prevent the Nazi's from getting the ark, and the Nazi's end up blowing themselves up. Not exactly a good setup for a plot.

     

    You pretty much summed up why the plot was so good. The journey to failure; no single man would be able to win against such an army alone makes him relate able.

     

    So the plot is good because the main hero is completely unnecessary? I don't think I agree.

     

     

    That kinda goes beyound the point on whether the movie is good or not. In the last scene, where the ghosts attack the Nazis you don't go all like:

    "Look at that shit... ghosts killing nazis and the hero is tied to a pole, such a useless hero"

     

    It's all about the journey and the way the scenes are cut together, and yes, the fact that he tries his best against an unbeatable army is part of why it's so relatable.

     

     

    Exactly.

     

    If you don't agree or like the plot, fair enough, there are plenty of other aspects from the movie that made it great.  We don't see much of this in movies anymore.  Resident Evil movies are a prime example of these problems.
