Steam Greenlight is Dead! | GAMING NEWZ

Hi, this is Dodger and you’re watching my show! 3 2 1 Ready? GO! It is SO wet outside Everybody keeps being like “Oh my gosh, these silly californians with so much water~” We’re gettin like, crazy mudslides and stuff. They’re calling it “Storm Lucifer.” tsk sooooo, hopefully it won’t live up to THAT name but my hair is very wet. *laughs* So for our first piece of news, there’s a thing There’s a thing that people go to called the
Konami Arcade Championship. This is where the DDR world championships happen and THIS year an american took home the gold. Which I think to any of us who have been in that vortex You know, on….heh, here on Youtube and you wind up just watching multiple videos of people in Japan, being inSANE at video games like going to an arcade, and just being like baivsfdiabsjdbsdviadlalalala and you’re just, you’re…you can’t, you can’t even follow it. So imagine that, but with DDR. Right? Everybody’s holding the bar and their feet are Flying all over the place. I can’t… It baffles me, that an american was able to win in THAT situation but it was real cute he was like “I, I wanted, to be real good at DDR mm since I was like 13 and now I’m, I’m taking the gold home to America.” I was like “Aww, bud” This was the 6th…. KAC The si…The 6th Konami Arcade Championship so uhh, you know, look if you’re incredible at DDR, and you’re like “No one’s ever recognized me for that I didn’t know that that was a thing!” Maybe, you need to start competing, man Get, Get to that KAAC Something with a LOT of controversy surrounding it in this last week is that Steam has announced they are eliminating Steam Greenlight They are going to replace it with something called Steam Direct Now, if you’ve spent a lot of time on Steam Greenlight not as a person who’s trying to get a game pushed through but just as, you know… Umm A person who wants to play a game You know that the system was never “perfect.” it was always kinda weird and it also had this, strange taste in your mouth of “But when I go on Steam, there’s so much..garbage.” “How come, how come all the garbage got through so easily?” So, the way that Steam is trying to fix this which to a lot of us, makes NO sense. is they’re trying to make this thing called Steam Direct and Steam Direct, is going to be a system where you submit a game along with a fee so as long as you pay the fee and submit the game properly your game will just be up on Steam pfft I think for those of us who you know, talk about the games industry a lot and discuss it in depth Umm This read to us as “God, you know, Steam Greenlight is just a pain in the butt. I don’t wanna deal with it anymore.=( I think I’m gonna come up with a system where somebody just pays me money and then they’re just up there.” which…sounds ridiculous to me. like the fact that they just can’t they can’t hire like,10 DUDES?! You can’t, you don’t have the money to hire like 10 people to just play the games that are submitted just to like, see if they even run…man. like, that’s not a thing you can do? REALLY?! And now, they’re asking people to pay money and they don’t even know how much. Right now, they’re like “I don’t know, we’ve talked to a bunch of developers Some of the people think it should be like a hundred bucks ($100) some of the people think it should be like 5000. and I’m like “There are Indie devs all over the place who don’t have that kinda money. What are you talking about?” So umm Needless to say you know, opinion piece I, I think that this is silly I think I think for years I think for years now They could’ve just hired a few people had them be in their own little room and been like “play games, buds.” *winku + tongue click* “You got this.” but no, they just keep coming up with more like weird, convoluted ways to do it that don’t work that nobody understands and now we’re gonna be paying them even more money to not…do their jobs That’s fine! That’s cool. I love it! At least! You know the one thing I can say? Their return policy is really good you know? Like Thank God! In a world filled with garbage games Thank god, that if I play it for like 5 minutes, I’m like “Wow! this is garbage!” I could give it back, and get a full refund Thank goodness YO! Speaking of people who have really listened to what we want and the sort of games that WE enjoy Oh my God So Conan: Exiles not saying that the game is perfect *SPOILERS* It’s not There’re all kinds of problems with it but it’s a survival game set in the Conan universe that has come out recently. It’s in Early Access Umm, I believe that they’re still calling it Alpha Umm BUT Something really cool is They did a press release saying “Yo. We sold so many copies We’re so glad that this game we’ve poured so much love int…” You know what, I’ll just read it. “Funcom has gone through some challenging times in recent years and seeing the game we’ve poured so much time and effort into gained this amount of traction so quickly is very invigorating for everyone who works here. This is just the start of the Early Access adventure. We will do whatever it takes to make sure Conan: Exiles turns into a fully fledged game that has something to offer new and old fans of both Conan and survival games.” So… AWESOME! It’s doing well. They’re feeling invigorated They’re jazzed to keep working on the game But to go back to what I said at the very beginning Something that they have already added which I’m so excited about is a, a dev kit for modders They’ve said “Yo guys Start working now. Get to work making mods Go for it buds! Whatever you wanna do here you go.” And I feel like this has come up a lot on my show in the past but just embracing modders is the way to keep your game interesting right? it adds to the longevity of the game It adds to the community like binding y’know? like, everybody gets so excited to make mods to play with mods There are countless games that have stuck around for WAY longer than maybe they should have because there are people still, to this day, making mods for them And I think that it’s cool that they’re saying “Yo, I mean, l…we’ve y’know barely, scratched the surface of this game but if you wanna start working on mods now Go for it, here you go.” Very cool, and as always I’m excited heh I am jazzed If you will to see what sort of things modders make for Conan: Exiles because There’s always the people… Okay, there’s two different types of modders right? Can we all agree? There’s two different types of modders. There’s the guys who are like “I’m gonna make this game even MORE EPIC!” and then , there’re the guys who are like “But what if they were all My Little Ponies?” Very excited and I’m also very happy for Funcom umm I’m I’m looking forward to the way they flesh out the game even more I DID HAVE FU… You know what? When I played it I did have fun despite the fact that I died every like 5 MINUTES CUZ THAT GAME IS SO HARD but I did have fun When it comes to open world games that just has billions of sidequests but you feel like they actually matter I think that in recent memory The Witcher 3 has been the game that lot of people will point to. Like “That’s a game, where I did a sidequest and it actually affected things. it was important Y’know? I, I felt like it was okay for me to go off and like, do a sidequest and it wasn’t a waste of my time It, it really did contribute to the world as a whole and who was involved, and what was going on like it was… they were meaningful. It turns out that a lot of other game developers are looking at that game and saying “yeahyeahyeahyeahyeahyeahYEAH! That’s the way to do it.” The people working on Mass Effect: Andromeda have taken that to heart. They are planning on having what they are calling “meaningful side quests a la Witcher,” which really just makes sense because again Mass Effect is a world that is very interesting One of the reasons that it was so awesome in Witcher 3 is because You know, it was the third installment We were already so invested in these specific characters Umm, and to like have places where we could involve them more or, or see little nods to other games was SO cool! and to just flesh everything out and, and again, really feel like you were contributing to the final part right? umm I think that… Absolutely! that’s VERY smart to do with Mass Effect People love it! They love the world I think again, any kind of a nod to the older games is gonna be great, for like a hardcore Mass Effect fan So I’m delighted! I’m delighted to hear that people are looking at a game like Witcher 3, and saying “That’s the way to do it!” To, to give people experiences that, that makes sense and feel like they’re important. You know, umm, Inquisition… They did some interesting stuff with but I feel like they still missed the mark a little bit There was a period of time while I was playing Inquisition when I wa, when I was like “No, i-it’s fine because like every side quest I do is contributing to the Inquisition. Right? but, like, it It still… In the end I was like “Oh God, this is so much busy work!” So if you really loved Witcher 3 get ready cuz Mass Effect: Andromeda is gonna try and mimic that kind of style. And if they, y’know if they really commit to it, I think it’ll be super cool. For any of you who love the Payday series it has been confirmed that Overkill is working on Payday 3 It might not be coming out anytime soon We actually found out through a financial earnings report umm which on the plus side means that it is absolutely true right? There’s, there’s like NO question but on the the con side I don’t know how to say that CONVERSELY Umm We have no idea when it’s gonna come out We didn’t get like, y’know a cool trailer or anything like that. We don’t have any graphics to look at, and be like “OOoo, it looks so be-shiny~.” But they have confirmed it that they’re definitely working on Payday 3 that they’re gonna take as much time as they need to to make sure that it’s a really good game because it is their most important property. “It is with GREAT satisfaction that we also can announce that Payday 3 production has officially initiated and at a full-designed stage. I’d like to especially clarify this project will enjoy as much time as we deem needed It will be done, when it’s done. This is our single most important brand today and the cornerstone of our business We will treat it accordingly Updates in the near future might be scarce and far between We simply don’t rush Payday 3.” I don’t know when’s the last time you checked out Payday 2 but they still… they continue to support that game so if you haven’t played it in a while there might be a bunch of stuff that you haven’t seen before. Think they just put out a DLC pack umm That game is fun! Those, those games in general, are very fun and I’m excited to see what they do with Payday 3. Even if we have no idea when it’s gonna come out. Das fine! AGAIN That’s fine because they’re making sure that it’s a good game. Take your time buds. I think especially The fact that they are continuing to support and add stuff to Payday 2 while they’re also making Payday 3 is like “Great. You’re doing right by us. Go for it man.” And as a final bit of news for those of you who have not called it quits forever! The next generation of Pokemon: Go is now live There are 80 new pocket monsters that you can find around the world Umm Some countries have now gotten their own pokemon That didn’t have them before you know how like there were lots of different places where it was like ” Oh… well the only place that you can get a Tauros is in the U.S.” Y’know, that kind of a thing. umm, yeah! There’re, there are more of those now. There are more countries that have their own specific pokemon and it’s been interesting to see Who’s gone back to play it and who’s just like “Nah, I’ve been burned. I’m done.” Uhh, the pokemon can apparently like, dodge now That’s a thing that exists. So you know, there’s even more of a possibility that when you toss a pokeball it’s just gonna fly off into the aether I love that. Here’s the thing is that I still think that Pokemon: Go is an awesome idea. I still really really wish that they had given it the support that it needed from the get-go. umm You know, when everybody was really into it and really invested and really loving it I wish that they had kept that steam going instead of making it seem like they had no idea what they were doing and they didn’t understand the community because that’s how it came across And whether or not that’s true that’s how a lot of people felt. umm, I still think that it’s great for exercise I still think that it’s a great way to get people outside and doing something umm, and who knows like, with this new generation, this might be a way to get people back into it. For sure Patch notes: Umm, over 80 additional pokemon originally discovered in the Johto region Umm, gender specific variations new encounter mechanics new berries new outfits uhh, a new night mode map and new night mode encounter music bug fixes test fixes etceteraaaaaaaaaa But Still… no trading.=( *cries* I have a friend who has been keeping like 10 Tauros just, just in there just in case because she’s planning on, like doing some travelling and she’s like “If they add in trading, I’m ready. I’m ready to like go to another country and be like “Yo You want a Tauros cuz you can’t get it anywhere else?” like that’s literally why she’s keeping them and I’m just like Aww man, I’m gonna be so sad for you if it just never happens.” right? Or if it takes like yea… a year or more for them to add that in I still, I still love the idea of Pokemon: Go and I still love that it exists. Umm, I just… Y’know I, I just think that it’s a shame that they didn’t take advantage when everybody was SUPER INTO IT! But what can you do? Maybe everybody will get back super… into… it again… But anywho, that’s been me show.

  • the problem with Pokemon go is like 1/3 a Pokemon game in the sense that it has the assemble a team and grind for lvls, but then once you get your dream team and are ready to take on the world, all you have is gyms and its just lacks late game content, and yeah adding new Pokemon helps but its still just covering up the lack of game in it.

  • Final fantasy 15 "tried" to mimic Witcher 3 in how to flesh out sidequests.

    Not quite there but at least they tried something rather than nothing.

  • No mention of the POE announcement? The fall of oriath is going to turn ARPG's on its face and GGG is doing great work!

  • Wow, You have a storm named "lucifer" That sounds like a scary, storm name. In the UK we have scary storm name like Storm Barbara. Terrifying.

  • it still baffels me how gorgeous you are all natural brooke!..

    also, looking forward to riding unicorns in conan with my junk out ;D

  • The Witcher 3?  Really?  Up until this moment I had some small hope that the new Mass Effect might not be totally horrible.  But I think that just killed it right there.

  • Konami? I think I suffer from Long Term Memory loss, because that name is dead to me. And oh joy, another rust like games that will be filled to the brim with sadistic children. Good genre eh

  • Bioware helped CD Project in the beginning, now Bioware takes inspiration from Witcher and Skyrim, I think it's great that companies are friendly and humble enough to take inspiration from each other's work. Guess there is much more "developer animosity" amongst the fans than amongst the studios.

  • naw yeah gen 2 pokemon are the best

    (I grew up with gen 3, no bias)
    (also what were the other generation's themes? gen 1 was like synthetic creatures, gen 2 was pokeized animals, and gen 5 or 6[can't remember] was household objects)

  • "Hit subscribe if you think I deserved it"?! How about "Hit subscribe if you want to see/hear more? You're not getting a sub because you're a good person. What?

  • "They could have hired 10 people, and put them in a room and been like: play games buds".

    Dooger for President of everything. 🙂

  • Having a fee for Steam Direct will definitely discourage a lot of indie developers from putting their games up on steam, which for us as consumers really sucks because it means we'll have less access, or more difficult access, to indie games. TT^TT

  • It always felt like a big thing to me when a little indie developer I knew had the courage to put their game on Greenlight and people liked the game enough that it got published. Then I learned that Steam is full of garbage that comes from Greenlight. I guess I always thought that at the end of Greenlight voting a Steam representative takes a look at the game and decides if it's good enough.

  • I remember I was super pissed that the fist year I went to Anime Expo they stopped doing the DDR competitions, which promptly ended my DDR E-Sports career, I told my Sensei to get fucked and never looked at the title again.

  • please come to the Fan Expo in Dallas…. Your presance would add to the awesomeness that is the FanExpo… it would make the krackin happy 🐙

  • Maybe its because I'm from an older Gen. of gamers but i don't relay care if side quests have an impact on the over all game i feel like "side-quests" are just that something to do on the side when your not progressing the main story they are there to just help you level, get better gear or money

  • Dodger, we've listened to you whine about not having any rain for a very long time now.
    Careful what you wish for.

    01:02 on 0.25 speed. You're welcome.
    06:64 bigger dicks (you know it's coming)

  • If they made a Pokemon go game that had legit battles and trading and stuff like the main games it would be cool and I'd play it. TBH I'm bored of just flicking the screen to throw a ball now.

  • I'm really happy with the direction games are going in regards to being influenced by things that other games do well. I think games have a bright future because game devs are seeing how well good games are doing now more than ever. People saw how well P.T. did and are now being majorly influenced when making they're own game. And since P.T. was the most terrifying game in recent memory, I'm more than happy more horror devs are wanting to be like P.T. because that means more good horror games. This is exactly the same thing with Witcher 3 and other RPGs. Apparently the guys behind Final Fantasy XV played a ton of Witcher 3 while making the game and were really influenced by it and it shows. And look at how many people loved Final Fantasy XV. These examples are a step in the right direction.

    Oh, also I told myself I wouldn't get Pokémon GO until they add Gen 2. It looks like I'll finally be downloading it. Nice. 100% agree with Dodger on the benefits and positivity of the game, too.

  • I stuck with pokemon go this whole time and i was so exited when the update came out it didn't say anything about the new pokemon after the update and then a spinark popped up as soon as i opened the game i nearly screamed.
    By the way love you dodger keep being awesome!

  • You always had to pay a fee to be on steam. It just makes it so people can't submit trolls or joke games. The fee money goes to charity currently. Who knows with this new system though

  • Yo Dodger! Mad respect to your OMOCAT shirt. The "Yandere" shirt that was one of the earliest available items and its a true original and kickass shirt.

  • If Pokemon Go had better battling and, more importantly, more involved player interaction (battles, trading, etc), it probably wouldn't have died so fast. It's so sad

  • I totally agree that it would make sense for Steam to hire a QA team. Video Game QA at its base level isn't even that high of a Salary, and even if it was I think it would make steam more money than it would cost. I have a feeling part of Steam Direct will be a reactionary system, if games get returned too much they get removed, but that is still far from ideal. I really would like to see a QA team testing new games and going back through existing titles with poor sales or high return rates. Shovel ware is an issue, has always been an issue, and I think it is approaching time for another move like when Nintendo came out of the gaming crash in the 1980s with the Nintendo seal of approval.

  • pokemon go just felt like a blatant cash grab. maybe if they bother to fix that fucking tracker people might go back to it

  • everyone treated pokemon go like a main title and not a mobile app, but I do agree they should have waited on more year and added gen 2 pokemon, trading, and trainer battles.

  • i literally need to take a moment to appreciate Dodger and her show and streams and everything she does because she's such a positive influence in my life.

  • I don't think that's the whole system is it? like I know you have to pay a fee but I'm sure they'll have some sort of thing in place to see if the game has potential and quality

  • Total agreement on the modding. So many games that denied modding are aging poorly, and the ones that allowed it still feel fresh as a daisy. 😀

  • Clearly, the Steam fee should be at LEAST $5,000. Gabe Newall needs it to complete the golden diving board on his golden swimming pool filled with gold.

  • Meaningful sidequests mean nothing if your game has a price tag beyond it's worth.
    That is also something that any company making a game needs to learn from CD Projekt Red as well.

  • I knew about the PokeGO piece of news before I saw it here, wow I feel so relevant (* o *) Mostly because I still keep playing it 😛

  • sooo I was looking at this video and I don't know why but I went back and watched dodger videos from 2012 and daaamn she changed but her personality stayed the same and I love it. Keep it up dodger.

  • Greenlight failed at what it was supposed to do, so good riddance I say. If you can't pay a decent amount of money to submit your game, then making games is probably not the best use of your time.

  • Although I Think your "Cave Dudes" idea would be great for the moderation of Greenlight I think it is inevitable that Steam went for the one that maximises profit. I think their idea is that if you truly believe in your game you will find the money and that the customers will moderate the content themselves with the ratings system.

    Hopefully it will stop the shit shotgun approach. Throw enough stuff and Steam and something will stick.

  • @PressHeartToContinue there is awesome video with Colin is right where he interview a game dev about the idea about what u are talking about having people play games make sure they are not crap its a really good interview Kinda of funny

  • Loved Payday, but I was totally bored with Payday 2 in like 5 minutes. I bought it early, played it for literally an hour with friends, and we all agreed we didn't like it. So yeah, I dunno.

  • I'm an indie developer & commercial contractor. A lot of indies feel that steam direct is just a renaming of greenlight, and the paying to greenlight has just been acknowledged. That is why so much junk got through the greenlight process. Why pay ten duded to QC, when you are getting paid to simply greenlight something.

    FunCom: AoC and TSW, not failures but hard sells to the public. CEx, easy sell to the public in comparison.

    Of Mod developers, only 0.001% are competent, on the level of commercial game makers. 80% of mods are just garbage from unskilled players. 19.999% of mods plagiarize something done well in an other mod, or trojaning a virus hack (meaning the true intent of the mod is not defined and kept hidden behind the plagiarized released description).

    Side quest are meaningless, any resemblance to meaning is an illusion and an act of magic.

    P:Go, P4F gamers believed they were customers and had a voice. They were not customers, and had no voice. Once the developers realize how P4F exploitive the game was, they took action to correct this. And target, their paying customers. The only true customers with a voice.
