Have You Bought RPG Maker VX Ace? – March 2012 Poll Results

Last month’s poll results are in, conducted the second half of March, and the results are surprising yet are not surprising at the same time. Out of 23 votes, only 18% (4 voters) either preordered or bought RMVXA when it was released. An overwhelming 61% (14 voters) said they couldn’t afford it.

Indeed, at $90 RMVXA punches a huge hole in many enthusiasts’ pockets, mine included. Not everyone is able fork out that kind of money, especially in today’s economic climate. However, I have to say that Enterbrain did the right thing with their newest RPG Maker.

For all intents and purposes, RMVXA is an extension of its predecessor, but it goes beyond what RMVX was capable of with RGSS3 and feature-rich additions. In my opinion, RMVXA is not for “noobs”, it’s for the die-hards, for those who practically grew up with RPG Maker since RM2K and mastered each and every one of them since, and for programmers whose passion for producing some awesome scripts have made RMXP, RMVX and RMVXA what they are today.

Let’s face it, VX Ace is good! So is it worth the $90 price tag? I have to say, although I personally can’t afford it, yes it is!

  1. True, but personally I am not going to. And I’m not going to get into the anti-piracy, SOPA, PIPA or ACTA shit either. Maybe I’ll say though that if everything in life was crackable, then there’d be no real sense of achievement. We’d live in a take-take world rather than a give-and-take one (more so than we presently do at least).

  2. Take-take world? C’mon, brother. The United States is ruled by give-and-take-one political tyrants. It should be a resource based economy. Just look at Linux: Open-source,(generally free) most of those programmers get paid as consultants.

    …So, that’s why one cracks it.

  3. Of course! The rich get richer, the poor get crack-happy (with the dual meaning in place). That’s the way it is. And I don’t know a single person who, at least once in their lifetime, hasn’t had some kind of cracked program installed.

    What I meant by that statement really is that there are certain things that I would like to accomplish myself or gain a sense of achievement having accomplished it.

    (You don’t want to get me started on politics, however, or its bourgeoisie NWO “ploticians” either! ^_^)
