    So you think those darts are free do you? I think you'll see in the small print you agreed to when you crossed the threshold that each throw costs you 10 pence. And you know when you went to the toilet? That unsinkable log just cost you £2. *

    I think you've hit rock bottom when you sit down on a pub toilet and think "this would look really good in my bathroom..."

    it ran awry when you tried to reinvent the game demo, all the world needs is a demo for every game and if you cant decide after playing it then that probably means its a no

    Fair point. And you're right. A game demo is a good thing. I'm just trying to suggest ways to stop game developers being cheated from money they deserve. I'm also trying to show that when you put things into perspective, 25p is not a lot of money for an hour's entertainment. Just my opinion. I shall go to bed now and shut up

    Re: Banned from XBOX Live.... Is this guy for real?

    There is still a problem with the pay-per-hour model. I believe that a lot of gamers are susceptible to games that involve a level of grinding. Whether it is to reach a higher level, or obtain certain rare items, once you get a balance between the player to obtain new power up, then powering the monsters so that they need to power up further, you can ensure, spend a lot of time in the game without that much into making the game interesting.

    Hack and slash games are prime examples of this. Classics such as Diablo and Diablo II may have an above average storyline, good gameplay, but are nevertheless quite repetitive. Players spend a fair amount of time 'farming' certain areas for items or XP, all in an attempt to beat the game at a higher level, or collect every item in the games and whatnot. It the cost of making new items with different stats is relatively low, and there is virtually no cost in making the drop % really low so that people need to spend more time to get it.

    An action based game like Half-Life 2 may have a relatively long campaign, yet nowhere the near the potential of a hack and slash game. However, the satisfaction gained once you complete the final objective of the game may well be equivalent in both games. Furthermore, a pay per hour model may encourage people to rush through a games as opposed to enjoying them. In the end, it would make 'casual games' (e.g. tower defense) far more profitable than games that tries to push the envelop of one's gaming experience.

    What amazes me is that on the pc's any pirated game you play, the only mode is deemed useless just like the 360 once your banned.

    Still many pirate on the pc's though so maybe this latest ban wave wont stop or slow down anything really.
