In case you didn’t hear, Dead Space 3 came out yesterday and it’s pretty dang sweet. What isn’t sweet though is the inclusion of DLC packs that sell resources as I’m sure you did hear. But that’s acceptable because according to EA, some gamers would rather pay cash than grind for resources. Which brings up the topic for this week’s Nerd Wars! How do you like to pay when you play?
Do you like the “Free-to-Play” (a.k.a. Freemium) model of gaming where the fun lasts until you run out of Stamina Points and then either wait real time or fork up some cash for more? Perhaps you’re more an “Episodic” kind of gamer and really enjoyed what The Walking Dead did with it’s periodic release of short episodes . Just like the show! Or maybe you’re more hardcore and like to pay “Full Price” for a game that you can crack open and experience from start to finish without interruption or needing to insert more quarters. Either way, we want to know!
