EA admits it "got it wrong" over Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes

dsmx

1 week ago

@seeyoshirun Look at it another way, EA thought, and budgeted it, to sell over 10 million copies, 3 million less units sold is a shit load of lost money for EA. Also EA has already discounted the game very quickly after launch in sales which is even more money lost.

Far Cry 2's single-minded vision deserves to be remembered

dsmx

3 weeks ago

I remember it but none of those memories are good with one exception.

I remember every mission placing the beginning and ending at opposite sides of the map, I remember the secondary always been as far away as possible from both, I remember the totally unnecessary malaria mechanic.

I remember the shitty enemy checkpoints that instantly re-spawned which you generally had to clear at least twice every mission, I remember the shitty weapon degradation mechanics that never affected the AI but the second you picked up the AI guns they would almost instantly break.

I remember thinking I got to the end and then a second map opened up that while more interesting to look at (IMO) than the first map, made it all but impossible to avoid the checkpoints and still did the same spread objectives out as far as possible to pad out the game length.

I remember the only fun I had in that game being the final mission where it ditched the free roaming and just went back to what they did in the first far cry and crysis, plonks you on one side of the map and lets you to get to the other side of the map however you want.

To me far cry 2 is a game with nice ideas but let down by terribly thought out game mechanics, numerous annoyances and huge amounts of padding.

I genuinely can't see why people look back at it with any found memories, I know people do but for the life of me I can't see what enjoyment there get from it.

You're wasting company time and resources on implementing a system that nobody will use.

Unless of course Ubisoft are lying and they do impact gameplay and progression but you can't admit that to the public because of the bad rep loot crates have for affecting gameplay and progression.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes investigated by Belgian Gaming Commission

dsmx

5 months ago

@TwinStripeUK I'm reading the 2005 gambling act right now, loot boxes can definately be classified as gambling. For those that want to look, here you go: http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/2005/19/pdfs/ukpga_20050019_en.pdf

The early sections define what gambling is in law, later sections also define what happens if minors gamble and EA could be in for a world of hurt there since they are required to return all money that was bet by minors.

Section 6 subsection 4b clearly states "whether or not he risks losing anything at the game" It does not state it has to have a monetary value.

I'm playing the demo and I find it really good, satisfying to play and fun. My only real issue with it so far is the inconsistent penalty system which I doubt will ever be fixed properly.

I'm still not getting it at launch mainly because ever since the BF4 debacle I refuse to buy any game at launch that is online focussed. That said the demo took me from not getting it, to I will get it a bit later on so well done polyphony there.

Instead we get this option, which ensures everywhere outside the US and even inside the US in some state cases that WB gets the money from this supposedly charitable DLC.

It's disgusting quite frankly that they think this murky statement is even remotely appropriate for this.

Picking the Jew class in the stick of truth was a stroke of genius and the fact that it felt like an episode of south park was incredible, everything in the game looked, felt and acted like it would in an episode of the series.

Laughing like an evil genius in armoured warfare as I drove my Challenger 1 straight towards the enemy and watched every tank shell bounce off the armour.

The way the story unfolded in alpha protocol was brilliantly done and the way it changed depending on if you went the Jack Bauer or James Bond route of interacting with people was a lot of fun.

Then there's new vegas....some of the info that has leaked out over the years about what could of been in that game really saddens me. Still the quests that were there were well written, varied and so many different methods could be used to achieve your aims. This game deserves to be remade and done properly because there is so much more that could of been done with it.

Microsoft and PlayerUnknown dance around the thorny issue of Battlegrounds console exclusivity

dsmx

8 months ago

@Cyber6 Timed at best, MS were far more forthcoming about the exclusivity deal for Tomb Raider.

The fact that they are sticking with the line "launch exclusive" could just mean that the early access part is on the xbox and when the game launches properly it will be out on both the PS4 and the Xbox at the same time.

Time will tell though.
