This week we’re back playing games!
Thanks for making my commute entertaining this morning ;).
Regarding the badges etc, the XP levels ups your maximum number of friends, and unlock more features to put on your profile page. At least that’s what I understood from a dutch forum where (some) people were going mad trying to get the summer sale cards over and over again to up their UP ….
It probably generates revenue through the Steam market place and might even make some people buy more games ? Probably a business model in there somewhere ;).
BTW I bought a cheap indie game on steam yesterday and I still get summer sale badges O_o.
I’d forgotten about the friend thing. Spend money to have more friends!
It’s all rather cynical 🙂
Up their XP i mean … Oops
The Guardians in Rift actually start out in the past, where the gods give them the multiple soul power to stop Regulos from coming into the world after the leader of the Defiant summons them.
Basically, both sides intros are designed to paint the other side as the bad guys. Where each actually falls on the slide of morality is harder to say.
