Not only is this an age of change - the technologies, the business models - but the games themselves are changing. And when they're released, they don't stop changing. Sometimes this leads to them being not very complete when released, but it also opens up the opportunity to breathe fresh life into a game. This week we want to know, what post-release bits and bobs do you find the most useful? Or the most fun?
We're not talking about the obvious stuff like "Steam". This can be a zombie mod that was introduced into your favourite game, or something that's necessary to play it that the developers neglected, or a UI fix... Anything along those lines.
Personally I couldn't live without the resolution mod for Dark Souls on the PC. For some reason they wanted everyone on PC to play it with the same resolution (720p) and FPS (30). The mod allows you to play at whatever resolution you want, making it much more beautiful, and has evolved to fix other issues with the PC version as well.
Another one that keeps popping up for me is MotioninJoy. Many PC games require a 360 controller or some other game pad lying around. But you might not have a 360, or perhaps not a controller that plugs into USB. MotioninJoy lets you use a PS3 controller, fooling the PC into thinking it belongs to a 360. Great for all those Steam games that work better with a gamepad. It can be a little fiddly when you set it up, but is usually fine after that.
The Six Launcher/Updater app also comes to mind for those playing DayZ, though if you're playing DayZ, you probably already have it.
