What do you get when you cross the usual PWX Gong Show with the annual Holiday Travel Shit Show? You get a lot more ‘fun’ trying to get the new update bug tested before we can release it. Why isn’t every family member of a game developer required by law to keep a buff workstation in working order for when we visit?
It’s all going well, though, and I’ll talk to Eric about pushing this update to our alpha channel on Steam if for some reason we don’t think the bug fixes can be added any time soon.
If you’d like to see the new update in action with all of the new features you can check out the replay on Twitch right over here:
Fire Pro Rip Off?
So, recently it was announced that Fire Pro was going to be charging for DLC on Steam and some people actually bitched about it. Blows my mind. You can currently pick up Fire Pro World AND it’s DLC for under $20. What kind of wrestling gamer thinks this is some kind of “greedy” money grab? I can’t imagine any Fire Pro fan I know who wouldn’t GLADLY pay them $20 a month let alone as a one-time purchase.
I’m grateful for the frickin’ miracle that Fire Pro can still generate enough revenue to keep even the smallest team employed to continue working on it for us. Am I just a grouchy old asshole because I remember being thrilled to even have the opportunity to import a Fire Pro game for $100?! Maybe a new generation of gamers has gotten too used to 99 cent sales. Have we seriously become this entitled?
Question of the Week
Back me up here. Of prove me wrong. How many of my Fire Pro playing friends wouldn’t happily pay them $5, $10, or even more per month as a subscription if they kept updating it every month as well?
