Weekend Confirmed 155 - SimCity, Dark Souls

By Andrew Yoon, Mar 08, 2013 11:00am PST

Garnett Lee is joined by Andrew Yoon and TRS' Dan Trachtenberg. Jeff Cannata is AWOL, presumably because he's still waiting to join a SimCity server. Dan kicks things off with yet another loving tribute to perennial show-favorite, Dark Souls. Listen as he tries to convince Garnett that From Software's hack 'n slasher is, somehow, just like a racing game. But, Garnett counters with Real Racing 3--a racing game so real, it says so in the title. What does EA's freemium game mean for the future of the industry? Finally, we talk about SimCity eventually, but you'll have to wait at least an hour or so before that talk begins. But, you're used to that, right?

  • Great show this week, nice hearing Dans love of Dark Souls.

    Regarding Free to Plays, im all for them, as long as they also give us the option to buy a full unlocked copy of the game at a decent price.

    I downloaded and got my feet wet with Real Racing 3, but i dont have the time to sit around and let my game sit there while my upgrades become available. If i want to have all cars and tracks unlocked, its going to cost me close to $100? thats insane.

    Offer me the game for $20, with all unlocked, but also keep the free to play option there as well, with IAPs.

    SWTOR has executed this well, its ftp with many iaps, but for those that pay the monthly fee, they still have all of the features open to use.
