    Dude does a 15 minute rant stating how catastrophic this entire debacle was, and then his suggested alternatives towards the end were.... variations of paid mod systems. The very thing he was seemingly against for the majority of his rant. What a douche.

    There are no superior or ethical alternatives to what Valve and Todd's Rainbow Gang tried to pull. There is only one single solution and it's what we've always had for mostly every PC game -- free fucking mods. Leave it alone.

    ARMA 3 is next. Devs announced it like half a year ago. It's maybe the reason why they were forced to launch only through Steam. But it is debatable in this case-community does some high quality mods/units/total conversions/whatever and some of them change the whole gameplay (and fix the fuckin game). And devs kind of made community produce high quality mods with their incentive "Make Arma Not War". They also said to be preparing DLC with best community mods. So paid mods are coming, hopefully with donate button instead of buy. Can't decide if incline or decline in this case.

    No thanks, I can literally download bipodded weapons and helicopters, this is only for people who play vanilla arma 3.

    The ingame ads are obnoxious as shit, Payday 2 has them too.

    Well at the end of the day, they can do whatever the hell they want with mods.
    As long as they're free I might use them, when they're not, SAYONARA.

    If other users are dumb enough to pay for them, then they deserve to be be taken advantage of.

    They popped up because I've used a dlc weapon or bi-pods in some custom mission i think.

    I see. So they made the game so you could play with people who have this dlc, but you get spammed by ads of you use any of the equipment? :?

    Something like that, I'm not sure how the permissions work for A3. I also think you can't create missions with the DLC equipment with them unless you own it, but if someone else places the weapon down you are able to use it.

    My explanation for Bethesda is that some large subset of people are into non-dissociative immersion. The dissociation feeling is that thing where you could be playing a game, or reading a book or listening to music or many other things and you're so deep into it that your mind essentially goes out of your body. You could be in a hospital bed after a surgery and forget that you're in pain, or you could let your cooking burn even though your body can smell the smoke, or whatever. I used to think that was what people were talking about when they'd say "immersive" - and of course I didn't get exactly how Deus Ex was supposed to be immersive, but Civilization isn't.

    I was leading up to saying what I think immersion actually is but I don't think I ever really figured it out. I somewhat think it's the feeling that you're "really there". Except regular people don't do stuff like take a room in their home to rig up as their flight sim cave with elaborate displays and force feedback controls.

    Maybe it's just the seductive suggestion that you're "really there", hoping you're too dim to get that being a floating camera moving around a CAD environment getting behavioral rewards isn't simulating something.
