Your opinion has been noted.

Actually, it's fact. There is a huge difference between opinion and fact.

Fact is, they advertised 4 packs in the Seasons Pass, that's all they owe you for whatever price you paid for it.

My opinion is, that you are a whiney entitled child because your opinion is you think you deserve more than what you were advertised and paid for.

Don't tell me about Alien CM. I bought the game and the Seasons Pass. I'm not happy with the way it turned out, but I took a chance on it and it didn't turn out. Won't be the first time I've been burned on a game purchase and I highly doubt it will be the last. Difference is BL2 is a decent game (that I find kind of boring) that has been well supported in the year it has been out and they have more content coming out.

Despite being displeased with the game, I think the lawsuit is stupid and I hope it won't go anywhere. Nor do I expect it to. Unfinished material gets used all the time for entertainment advertising. Scenes are removed from movies, songs are rearranged and games graphics change.

I also don't hang all the blame on Gearbox. Fox handed it off to Sega, Sega handed it off to Gearbox, Gearbox handed it off to Timegate. Timegate made a shitty game and now they have folded. Gearbox and Sega are left to clean up the mess. They all fucked up and nobody is talking. It sucks, I've seen worse and I've played worse. For what it is, I actually had fun with ACM, particularly Bug Hunt (which was actually done by Nerve).

I don't feel entitled to content that was never advertised. I feel entitled to receiving everything that was released in a season when I buy a season pass. Purely a naming and manipulation issue.

Wrong. What you paid for in a Seasons Pass is what was advertised at the time. The Seasons Pass was defined in August 2012 as being....

"Borderlands 2 will have at least four downloadable content expansions by next summer. 2K Games announced a $30 season pass this morning, available at launch, which will make the four pieces of $10 DLC accessible for the price of three. The season pass is available for Xbox 360, PS3 and PC."

Which ended up being... Captain Scarlett and Her Pirate's Booty, Mr. Torgue's Campaign of Carnage, Sir Hammerlock's Big Game Hunt, and Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep.

Everything beyond that is a bonus, which you also got Mechromancer pack (originally preorder bonus) and the Ultimate Vault Hunter Pack with the Seasons Pass.

There is no "naming and manipulation issue" here. Just your lack of basic comprehension and being entitled to more content than what you agreed upon at the time of purchase.

ItBurn wrote on Jul 20, 2013, 19:20:
I don't think that being mad at the naming of a DLC pack is making developers going out of business.

Again, comprehension issue. I didn't say you being mad about it puts them out of business. I said your line of thinking that you are entitled to content you didn't pay for leads to developers going out of business. If you like the game and still play it and want more content over what you already bought, then pony up for it and stop whining like a child that you didn't get it all, when they hadn't even planned for additional DLC at that point.

/facepalm

You bought what they advertised. End of story. As it is, they already included the UVHP in the Season's Pass, which they didn't need to do as it wasn't advertised.

Fucking children these days think they deserve everything in the world for nothing.

Why are you guys so mad about my different opinion? I've had less flak from offending religious people.

Because your greedy opinion is what leads to developers going out of business. Why do you feel entitled to content that was never advertised in the package you paid for? It's real people making a product that you want. I'm so tired of greedy bitches thinking that everyone should work for free to provide them with what they want.

Kinda like the person in the sale thread complaining about a $1.50 difference between what he would pay for Van Helsing/DLC (he stated $8) and not paying the sale price cus it was too expensive ($9.50).

Ant, do you ever look stuff up yourself before you ask on here? Usually things you ask could yield an answer in seconds if you just Googled it.

And are you so cheap that $5 is too much for a good game?

So all the "Free to Play" games on Steam are just "meh"? I highly doubt you've played them all, as there are plenty of good F2P games on Steam.

Team Fortress 2 became Free To Play over 2 years ago now. How anyone has missed that is beyond me.

Yeah except none of the build engine ports have reliable coop with multiplayer save/loading.

So I'm still waiting for "proper" of that with Duke3D, and they already released Shadow Warrior instead of working on that.

Yea they "promised" Multiplayer for Duke3D Megaton and haven't delivered on that yet. So they don't get my money for Shadow Warrior until they get Coop/MP in for both games.

You guys crack me up. It's day one, first set of Flash Deals and the first Community Choice hasn't even gone on sale yet. 10 days to go... Talk about impatient.

GMG's 666 sale was garbage. Was mostly crappy budget games and was very limited, was made up of titles from the same IP's (ie: Worms games were on sale most cycles instead of just having them all discounted at once). Sales applied to bundles only and not individual titles. (ie: Total War and Borderlands 2). I didn't buy a single game during the GMG sale.

Gunslinger is $10 on daily deal and is more than worth that. 6 people on my friends want the game and none have bought it yet today. One of them is in this thread complaining about the Steam Sale being lackluster. Shit or get off the pot.

I'm grabbing a few Pinball FX2 tables as they are 50% off, and a dev has posted in their community hub that they not get a further discount as a Daily Deal.

Considering Don't Starve 2 pack for $6.75 each.

Indeed. Quickest way to get sued or at the very least make sure nobody buys your future games...sell a seasons pass and then not deliver what was already sold.

I look forward to the campaign DLC as it has a chance of being decent. And at least I'll be able to play it unlike the MP DLC.

They owe the community 1 more DLC, they have released Bug Hunt and 2 MP map packs already. Bug Hunt was great. The MP map packs were useless to the PC community since their implementation of matchmaking is completely broken on PC.

After the campaign DLC, that will probably be the last of it based on what was listed in the Seasons Pass description.

Civ5 Brave New World in a few days.
Company of Heroes 2
CoJ Gunslinger
FC3 Blood Dragon
Trackmania (several releases)
Grid 2
Bioshock Infinite
Metro Last Light

That's just the last few months and that's just for PC. There were more good games in the first few months of the year and dozens of other game releases ranging from bad to great. If you think it's bit a shitty first half of the year, you are an idiot.

Mootant you are full of shit.

The price point on DoTP releases is very cheap compared to if you were to buy the physical pre-made Theme Decks. Especially when they are released with new sets every 3-4 months and new Core set ever year. DoTP is for the casual Magic player for the most part. If someone wants to get really competitive, open boosters and make their own decks to really get into pro decks, they will do in in Magic Online.

Most decks can be unlocked by playing the game. Foil cards are a waste of money and for "collectors". There is zero need to pay to unlock decks if you just play the game.

If you think $20 a year is a cash grab, you clearly have no basis for what that means. A single pre-made Theme Deck in real life retails for about $15. There is what, 8 to 10 decks in the base game?

That being said, I find your offloading of your own indignation onto hypothetical others hilarious.

Hypothetical others? I speak from personal experience from friends that were raped. Or are you suggesting that people that have had friends or family members raped, would find the topic something to joke about?

I've asked several times how funny they would find it if their own friends and family members were raped. None of them answered my questions. Fact is, they wouldn't find it funny at all and they have no intelligent response to it, because they know they are wrong.

Whether the joke is in a room full of thousands of people or 3 people, it's not something to joke about. I don't expect to change anybody's mind on the matter. It's up to them to think about how they would feel if it was something that happened to someone they love, if they would still think it's laughing matter.

If you think rape jokes are funny, go tell your wife, mother or daughter that you think rape is a joke. See how they react.

You guys do realize that it's utterly impossible to make a plotted game where your choices truly matter, especially if it's voice acted, and especially if it's $20, right?

It's not impossible, as they did it with several characters in the game, where the player was forced to make a choice between saving one character or another. Point is they put several instances where the player has to make choices, but only about 3 of this instances mean anything.

Furthermore RPG's do it all the time. Some even have had your choices carry from game to game.

People-who-still-think-rape-jokes-are-funny

If you think rape jokes are funny, I can guarantee that if you have a loved one that has been raped, you won't find it funny any more. Real men don't think rape is funny, just sad little boys.

I understand that's a bummer for many, but to me.. replaying a game ends up with either making the exact same choices or making different choices and feeling horribly uncomfortable in doing so.

I put myself in the protagonist. Changing the decisions I'd normally make for the sake of replayability just... rubs me the wrong way.

But what you don't seem to understand is that those decisions you made, weren't actually decisions at all. ie: Would you like orange Juice, Coke, Milk, or Water? You choose Milk. I hand you Coke in a Milk bottle. Your choice meant nothing when the end result is always the same.

I would have preferred to see those choices mean something. So if I saved that guy and let the kid die, how does the story change? How does that kids father treat me throughout the story? How does the guy I saved impact the story if he lived?

In the end, the Walking Dead game was so good because of the story and the acting, not because of the gameplay.

So, why provide the questions to the player when the answers mean nothing? It's a false sense of choice. The developers should just let the point and click adventure play out as they want it to, rather than trying to trick the player into a sense of false gameplay.

I expect they will release this as a DLC or as a patch to people who already own the game - much like how the enhanced Witcher games have been released. Would seem like pretty bad PR to do otherwise. Does anyone know of any official statements concerning this?

You know exactly what we do, which is what is on the website.

Eidos has demonstrated recently that they don't exactly have their finger on the pulse of their games and fans, ie: basically stating the new Tomb Raider was a failure to them, despite it outselling all the previous games, and recently announcing a new Deus Ex game for mobile.

I'm not holding my breath when it comes to existing owners getting these updates for free. I'll be pleasantly surprised if they do however.

Rather sad that of my posts, that is the only thing you can comment on. You take offence to that, but think jokes about rape is appropriate.

Fact is you, nor anyone else, have a meaningful rationale as to why jokes about violent sex crimes are funny.

Those that want to defend jokes about rape or other violent crimes, just makes it really easy to know who to add to the ignore list.

Acting like people can't judge a game unless they have played the latest patch revision is really disingenuous. I gave Diablo 3 a lot of chances and I'm a big Blizzard fan but in my opinion it is simply an inferior ARPG title compared to games like Path of Exile.

If all people are going to do is make comments regarding things that have long since changed/improved, then yes, their comments hold no weight and are meaningless.

I didn't like Paths of Exile when I tried the early beta. I hear it's changed. One of these days I'll give it another go. In the meantime, I don't go into every thread regarding the game trashing it based on my experience with it from about a year ago. To do so would be ignorant.

As you can see, there are several people that have posted that they have returned to D3 lately and are stating it's much better.

And my reply was to nin, whom unless I'm mistaken never played the game at all, but goes out of his way to make snide comments in basically every D3 thread.

If you're just gonna sit here and rage post, please be an adult and leave the discussion until you've calmed down.

Intelligent adults don't make jokes about violent crimes, or laugh at violent crimes. I've known several people that were either raped or molested as a child. It's no laughing matter. It haunts them for the rest of their lives. Some can't even live with themselves and commit suicide because of it.

So yes, I will rage post and continue to do so when insensitive small minded morons like you, think jokes about violent crimes is funny. Trust me, rage posting is far better than what I'd do if you were standing in front of me stating that jokes about raping women is funny.

Amanda Berry, Michelle Knight, Gina Dejesus, do you think it's funny they were held captive and repeatedly raped for over 10 years? Do you think the women in India that were gang raped on buses, is funny?
Do you think it's funny when a women doesn't feel safe walking down the street at night for fear of being attacked? Do you think it's funny that fathers rape their own little girls?

Maybe you and other just won't understand until you have a loved one that has been the victim.

It's really simple, if you had a friend or family member that had been raped, you wouldn't find rape jokes very funny, nor would you defend them.

Anyone that thinks rape jokes are funny and tries to justify them, needs a reality check.


"If you were emotionally vulnerable to situation X or Y, you wouldn't find X or Y funny or appropriate or right." is a pretty poor argument.

If I had PTSD, I wouldn't find running up behind someone with a paper bag and popping it funny, but I'm not going to bitch at people for doing it.

Just because something offends me, doesn't mean I'm going to get upset when everyone else is just like "What's the big deal?"

If you don't see the difference between making jokes about a violent sex crime and popping a paper bag, you are a fucking idiot.

Knowingly popping a paper bag behind someone with PTSD, is not funny. Popping a paper bag behind anyone else, funny. Making jokes about PTSD in-general, not funny. Making jokes about raping people, regardless of whether they have been a victim of the crime, is not funny.

If I came to where you lived, raped your mother, daughter, sister, brother, or father...that would be freaking hilarious wouldn't it?
