Poll: Has pc hit an incredible new low point? (76 votes)

Yes 28%
No 72%

It seems, amatuer mods, reusing practically all of the assets from portal 2, are being sold.

http://store.steampowered.com/app/280740

It's worth noting, unlike other titles that originated from mods, this required Portal 2 in order to play. and reuses mod, if not all assets.

With early access, greenlight and now selling childlike mods with a bad gun model, is steam, the savoir or pc gaming, quickly going down the prevail gutter? Like that man melting due to flying too close to the sun, has Gabe Newells aspirations overcame ability?

Well, many prefer not to show their rig. It solidifies PC beggar status.

I wasn't asking him to show it. I had discussed parts with him in the past, and knew he had settled on a build so I thought I'd ask how it went

nah, I've seen worse. PC gaming has the most pirates after all, that's why herms hardly have any Triple A games of their own. Only hand me down console ports like the Star Citizen guy said.

Things like this get charged on Consoles all the time.

Also I have a feeling you are just show casing this bit of DLC to us to give more recognition.

@inb4uall: r9 270x, i3 4330, h87, 8gb ram, solid psu, and no optical drive. very nice.

fuckin' oath man, just a smidge over 600. that seems really good to me. i think you've done well.

the tiniest of suggestions (which you might have planned to do anyway): please put the bios in RAID mode before installing the os, that way in the future if you do decide to use the intel srt thing (i endorse it), you won't have to format.

1. It's not just "gamespot". Its everywhere. Look at the latest gamers list, PC has almost as many as gamers as 6 consoles. It has double the hardware sales of consoles Steams highest concurrent is 4x larger than XBLs last recorded, and thats not even all of PC services. You tend to have "fans" everywhere w/ those numbers.

2. Anti-PC posts usually use lies and or no-sources, because there really is no dirt on PC. Not using sources or lying usually results in flag/ban/lock.

So essentially it's really late DLC.

You are bitching about a $7 expansion pack that's currently on sale for 33% off.

Speaking of 33% off, I just bought Abyss Odyssey. Looks amazing.

My friends, just imagine if Bethesda decided to do this. They have already mentioned wanting mods on consoles.

By selecting the best most popular mods, sticking a price on them, not only can they put them on consoles, they can make revenue from them.

Rather than the immediate moment, having a grand perspective of possible outcomes (like me) can help one see the possible dangers.

Also I'm buying this to assess the quality. Specifically for you.

My womb is deeply conflicted. One one hand, I want to support mod developers who put the effort in. On the other, it's a dangerous thing to support, since greedy peoples could try make it standard fodder.
