As we near peak loot box, one game is cutting down on them

urban

1 year ago

Yeah, this is neither good news or a good thing. They've tweaked the model so you've gotta spend a lot more time in their game in order to get you to spend more money.

Legitimately reckon these free to play mobile game makers have invested so much money into the psychology of gambling that they're going to change the entire industry of both gaming and gambling and *A LOT* more damaging than the gambling industry is today.

I've heard tales from people who have worked for these companies and it's pretty scary.

Two weeks on, has the YouTube CS:GO Lotto controversy changed anything?

urban

@kowst Actually, she was fired because these scumbags had discovered she was sidelining as a high end escort and they notified Nintendo who fired her for having a second job.

That was a huge invasion of privacy and these internet revenge squads are easily the biggest assholes on the internet.

Tmartn orchestrated a shady business and marketing scheme which played on the gullibility of children and young teens.

Syndicate had a share which implicates him and he should be punished but IMO Tmartn is the true scumbag.

I had a game key to sell on G2A, one GTA V key and I just wanted a bit of money for it because I got it as part of a bundle.

£18 which is about £1 cheaper than anyone else was selling it for.

I got an email from G2A customer support saying they had blacklisted the key sale unless I could prove it was genuine.

I provided proof and they then said...



Greetings,

As I can see you wanted to sell Grand Theft Auto V ROCKSTAR CD-KEY GLOBAL. It would be advisable to start with less expensive products and then sell more expensive ones. This would give you a good start, as you would have already a decent rating and amount of transaction so customers would want to purchase products such as Grand Theft Auto V ROCKSTAR CD-KEY GLOBAL from you.

What is more, you would learn how exactly our website works, so it would be much easier for you to manage the expensive products in a best way for you to maximize your profit.

Regards,

Wojtek G.
Seems to me like they don't want single users undercutting their mass key resellers who they make a decent cut off. (First 10 sales are free)

More over, me selling this key, if it's found to be already 'used' then they have to refund the buyer if they've bought the key using shield.

Never mind :)

I cannot believe this game is still going...I worked on it a whole 6 years ago. Our biggest problem with it was that it wasn't fun! There was next to no progression, what are people doing in it!?

Great QA team worked on it though, they're spread far and wide now, fair few went to Blizzard, majority went to CCP some even created that Valkyrie demo and are now fully fledged dev's!

Ready at Dawn responds to concern over The Order: 1886 campaign length

urban

4 years ago

@dogmanstaruk Return to Castle Wolfenstein is the only game I can think of in the last 2 years that was purely a AAA single player game and around the 15 hour mark without DLC.

The problem with that comparison is it was an exceptional multi platform game and made no bones about being a solid FPS shooter for that crowd from the people who made The Chronicles of Riddick.

This is a typical Sony America story driven exclusive from a studio who have only done ports with a story length of lets say 8 hours and another 4 hours of tacked on DLC.

They are flushing cash out of Sony for a fluff game. 6/10 I reckon.

@dogmanstaruk It's also an opinion so you know what to do with it. Disregard it, tell me to stick it up my arse, stick it up your own arse (if you beg my pardon) makes no difference to what it is.

I'm fed up of paying £40-50 for a AAA game (so I won't be), completing the story in less than 8 hours with no side quests or re playability other than achievements? Fuck that, fuck that years ago.

If it's just a single player 'experience' then it should be £30 imo.

@Lyonjak I personally prefer my £59 to go to a game with a lot more than 8 hours of game play. IMO a AAA should have at least 25 hours of gameplay in the main story and at least another 30 in side.

Story driven on rails games like this have gone the way of the dodo for good reason
