Morning Discussion

By Alice O'Connor, Jun 04, 2010 5:00am PDT Defense Grid's 99¢ two-map DLC packs are just the sort of downloadable content I like to see. I picked up the first pack last night, gave one of the maps a bash and was happy with the entertainment I received for pocket change. Tonight I'll work on the other and have a jolly good time. Marvellous.

Of course, Defense Grid is able to do this because it's split into separate, unrelated levels. With games such as Fallout 3, Borderlands or Oblivion, more expansive--and expensive--DLC makes the most sense. However, I always find it offputting to know $30 of DLC will soon be released for my brand new $40 game. I waited for Game of the Year editions before buying Oblivion and Fallout 3, and plan to do the same for Borderlands.

$10 is not a lot of money but it's past the point of a casual, impulse purchase for me.

  • Central Ohio Shackmeet

    I had posted a couple days ago about having a shackmeet in Columbus this Saturday before Gary the Llama heads off. Well, we should figure out what we want to do. I had mentioned having people over, but unfortunately realize that I won't be able to get out of the studio until 9:30-10pm. Plus this is pretty short notice and I know a lot more people could make it if there were more time given. So as I see it, we have two decent options.

    1. Everyone meet up do dinner somewhere say 8pm-ish and then we could go somewhere for drinks or head over to my place for games
    2. Gary will still have to make a trip back to Ohio, so we could have a better planned one at that point.
    3. We could just start @ 10pm at my place, but that seems less optimal than #1
