well I like my nokia and vodaphone.
besides the local blind org lets me have talks standard for 100 as part of the vodaphone contract so its not like I am changing to anything else.

Some of us here grew up playing mainstream games, so we know what's out there and what's possible, but many on here would be happy to play troopinam for years to come with no complaints and it's simply frustrating. I think some people here wouldn't care if we ever got good games or not because they're just satisfied with what they already have and that's really sad, not because the game is or isn't a good one, but because this level of resignation is what's holding us back. then again, perhaps gamers are to blame? next time you're considering spending your money on the newest shiniest iphone or blindy product, how about purchasing an actual console and check out what's truly out there gaming wise? then you guys can make your own decisions and determine if I'm write or not. if there's no interest for this out there, it'll never happen. If I had the money, I'd be at e3 every year and at every gaming convention out there trying to make a difference instead of spending it on iphones.

>>> when it comes to audio games, something I find quite annoying is the fact that many games aren't supported after initial release. even if they are, it's usually a small update a few days after game comes out just to keep up the hype and keep people buying, then after that the game never gets any sort of expansion. I think this is hurting the audiogames market, and developers are losing potential customers. what you guys aren't realizing is that people are even willing to pay for these expansions. mainstream titles do it all the time. let's say a new mainstream FPS game comes out and new levels are added after the initial game release, the developer could charge $5 for those additional levels and those interested will purchase it. or offer the downloadable content free and sell even more copies of that particular game. people get bored of the same old stuff, especially if the game doesn't have much replay value. we need DLC, and I don't understand why this hasn't been done yet. and that's not even the only problem. I think it's about time developers start adding an online component to their titles to make games a more social experience. no offense to any developer on this list, but I'd much rather go online and play a few rounds of super street fighter IV or some rock band than play most accessible games. why? because I'm interacting with people, not playing the exact same offline mode over and over. even if street fighter didn't have online features it would have been much more replayable than any accessible game out there mostly due to the trial mode the game contains, which can keep you busy for months. in fact there are people who've yet to complete trial mode on street Fighter IV and the game's been out for over a year! can you guys make such claims about audio games? back to online features. even the few audiogames that have online playability, we actually have to communicate through text, when most mainstream games are using voice chat, and even video chat! Is it all that difficult to add voice chat to games? I'm no developer so I'm asking because I like to be informed on these things. This is why when people ask me if we'll ever catch up to the mainstream market, I tell them that it'll never happen. devs need to really start concentrating on what the gamers want. and please I don't want to hear the "oh but audio games are only a 1 man operation" excuse. Take 10 years to develop your game if it takes that long, or Find developers who use the same programming language you do, and get together and form a programming team. but give us something good. something that we can be proud of 15 years from now and say wow! this game completely revolutionized the audio game market! as it stands now, most of the audio games I've purchased I just beat once in about an hour or so and never play it again, and this is probably true for many people on here. something needs to change, and it's up to all of us, developers and gamers alike to make it happen!
