Battle Stations is so much better than FarmVille
Leet.Still not gonna make a Facebook.Also Mal, on a completely different topic, can I make a Q+A thread?
Hahahah. This was great, i'm so glad i'm not the only one that things Zynga is terrible.
I used to post on the Escapist forums before I came here, and I remember them doing this last year, except with video game companies. Which is exactly what they did this year. @Me: a-durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr ustupid bro?I actually use to play FarmVille as well. After about 1 week, I grew bored.As for the video, the sarcastic commentary filled me right up. I couldn't eat another bite xD
To answer BFF question. I would not mind if Blizzard would become micro-transation (they already do with pet and mount, yet they still charge a subscription too!).
That's frightening how Zynga was only 5% off from Valve in the vote. Anyways, good video.
Hahaha, "So I guess I'm gonna plant some @#$%... or something?"

Mafia Wars+Ninja Warz>All Facebook games.
video wouldnt play for me : /
No ... they are not a game dev in the natural sense. It pays to consider, however, with the massive user base facebook has, how much money they can and likely do make on just '1' of these games. Said games could make a staggering amount of money considering. Would I want a blizzard one? no... WoW's enough for my time there, thanks. Facebook has enough flashtrash as it is, complete with the superspam(c) engine to lure everyone you know on facebook into the trap.
World of Warcraft is becoming a microtransaction game. With the pet store and now mounts you can purchase. That isn't including the various services like race, faction, name, or server change. Blizzard is getting everything they can out of this game by using the microtransaction model. The odd thing is that generally microtransaction games are free to play. I find it silly when someone is already paying $15 a month and they choose to spend $25-50 or even $75 on the pets and mount. I know a guy on my server who bought the mount and every single pet. That's like $125 or so.Crazy. For digital/nonexistent items.
