@spearmp And the very GTA, COD, Battlefront etc are the ones that uses these lootboxes and similar practices, not the indies. So now please tell me, what's your reply?

@Optimaximal If you replace brick and mortars with an all digital monopoly, you'll be in bad luck waiting for prices to be lower. All the contrary, we'll see a mark up in digital console only market place like PSN and XBOXLIVE, as also the second hand market would disappear. So no competition no lower prices m8.

That's nice. I can finally pick up MadMAx again, after buying it on PC but never finished it, 'cause my old GTX560 Ti kept on crashing. Plus I'll be way more relaxed on the sofa than on the chair ;)
Nadeo games were fun on PC, the best thing was downloading skins for the car. I'll be installing it I guess.

As for PS3 ans PSVita both I own, more sholverware the closer we get to have the free games offering fading out next year.

All in all I'm quite satisfied :)

I got a strange relationship with Nintendo and its hardware. In the nineties I despised the NES, being more of a Sega kid, owning the Megadrive but regretting not having a Super NES.
The first Nintendo console I ever bought was the Wii, sold it to buy a ps3 and never regretted it.
Then few years later I got myself a 3DS.. sold it to get a Wii U. Never regretted it. Then I bought a 2DS for my ex girlfriend that remained with me ( along with 2 cats) regretted it.. quite a bit.

Then last November I bought the Super NES mini, to revenge the lack I felt in the nineties.. it sits under my telly doing nothing really.. regret crawling..

Than few days ago I was saying to myself what's the use of a Switch.. besides Mario Odissey! Then I realized I own 3 Hardware of a Company I can't really say I like/love...
Where am i going whit all this rambling? I dunno, maybe I'll get a Switch someday down the line for no apparent reason!

Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank make for one of PlayStation Plus' biggest months yet

killuminati2911

2 months ago

Well, that was unexpected. Good job Sony.

However I played both, uninstalled R&C after beating it, finished Bloodborn at the time but I may install it once more ( I thought several time to buying it again but then..).

I barely download any PS VITA plus game anymore, I just add it to the collection if one day I fancy try any.
I seldom turn on the PS3 anymore or even add any plus games, they are dismal.
So all in all, I'm sad to see the support for the 2 older platforms being dropped off next year but to be honest, it was expected.

Enjoy this March guys :)

Metal Gear Survive review - surprisingly enjoyable horror spin-off

killuminati2911

2 months ago

Should not the press be on the part of the consumer?
Why is it that any terrible money grabbing schemes this industry put out always get a free pass?
Should not the journalist also warn the customer, from morally anbigous practices that in turns, would hurt the entire industry and put it in the sad state it is today?

I don't care if the game is nice pewpew or graphic or progression, the economic side of it has today, sadly, as much impact as all the other part of the product.

And no sorry, a game that ask me money for a save slot or XP booster in a system willingly handicapped to push for buying such booster is not enjoyable pal, surprisingly.
No matter the way you look at it.

I can't shake the feeling that this game will arrive too late.
Designed during the hyped Pirate movie production period, that is now well behind our shoulders, I think it will not capture many not right into that theme.
Plus all the mandatory need for others to move the ship around.
I don't know...
I hope for Rare it will do well and also for Microsoft because more competition is good for our pockets.

I bought this game when it came out, I'm trash at fighter games but SF was always a staple of my time on VG since well the first one!
But I basically dismissed it very soon for the sheer amount of grind online you had to do to get anything. At launch there were not much as single player.
So yeah.. now the free update is out but I won't even install it back on the HD.
I got MKX for single player and CAPCOM.. well if KONAMI is gonna KONAMI, then CAPCOM is gonna CAPCOM.
Plus they have to get back the money they lost on MvsC 3 no?

Sooo.. it was clearly design with lootboxes heavy implication to the gameplay and after the shitstorm, they had to start over and hence the delay.
Of course it will come out in Spring, 'cause launching it in Xmas would mean some others EA's heavy hitter would not be released at that time, and I don't see a future where we don't have no "BF3 the return of the lootbox" or "Battlefield whatever"for November/December. Ssdly.

So my bet are on Spring 2019 with a sligthly tubed down microtransaction system .

DICE fails to quell Star Wars Battlefront 2 controversy in reddit AMA

killuminati2911

5 months ago

@LeastResistance Mybe you didn't get the point that you can buy out your way to the drop. It is like entering a WoW raid and instead of trying and fail until you get the drop, you hand out 10 to the boss who says "thanks here's your epic shiny loot I'm on my way to next customer in line so please move on". Oh and to add to that.. the better part is you hand out the 10 ti the boss and he gives you some random shit you don't even need.
Aiming at something and letting people buy it off and hampering the gameplay to purposely press the gamers in handing out extra money is a total different shit.

But maybe I'm too close to the 40Yo to accept this practice in my hobby. Good luck millennials ;)

You are consciously handicapping a game putting in these shameless lootboxes/gated unlock progression.
Or you are not a game developer if you are not aware of it. That's your job, you know how it works. So stop bullshitting.
And this type of damage control is laughable.
"Feeling sorry" for something you were sure to get, is just blatantly false.
You thought you could get a free pass (eheheh) and enjoy the money.

It would have been better to admit you tried, but recognized the foulishness of your tactic. You would have been seen as a scammers as well but at least, an honest one.

But EA can't even get damage control right because of course.. someone have to cover the ass of the boss who made the decision in the first place.

We'll see how it develops, but I'm quite sure they'll make enough money out of it, to keep on doing what they are right now.
Reddit and dedicated news outlet cover a fraction of the total gaming population, especially if a franchise so big as SW is concerned.

Fans and parents and "casuals" will still buy it and endorse EA decision.

To be hoest I'm more itnerested in raw gameplay. the few I saw still showed animation that never appealed to me, like the old "stick up in the ass" jog that all the characters have. It is cringeworthy.

New enemies looks fairly generic and very close to other 3d models they already had, just add few meshes and more polygon and here they are.

We'll see anyway. ME lost me at the second chapter, I bought and finished the 3rd one 'cause it was on heavy sale but Andromeda.. eh I may be waiting for a sale again.

Colour me not interested at all.
Oh and I have a Wii U at home and a 2DS, so I'm not out of their target market mind you!
Good luck to them anyway, Nintendo ultra fans would buy it anyway, even if it was a carton box with mice inside. Fact is Nintendo can't grow or prosper only on its fanbase, shrinking generations after generations.

@number3son Same here. It is hard to justify 40 on a mible game nowdays. I bought just Fire Emblem on the 2DS I got 1 year ago. I'm a gamer at heart, so I understand the value of some software, but the main market for handheld devices, are people who buy for free or for few Euros and change games faster than a software house like Nintendo can keep up. Then of course, millions wasted money on games with in game app but it is a total different kind of market to that targeted by Nintendo that sadly, is slowly fading away.
