News Comments > BioShock Infinite Season Pass Announced
4. Re: BioShock Infinite Season Pass Announced Feb 21, 2013, 09:08 Bopper
 
I really dislike the idea of season pass. It just means as long as they get your money they can crap out whatever DLC they like. The only DLC I have ever tried that are worth it are Borderlands 2 and Skyrim DLC and those only if you either really enjoy the originals or you grab them cheap.

The great thing about Skyrim DLC is the fact that it invites you to start a new game as you can jump into the DLC and skip all the stuff you did the first playthrough as I am doing now.

Will get this when you can buy it as part of a DLC pack and there is some mod compilation to go with it.

As long as money earned from micropayments > money lost from potential customers lost due to this it makes sense for them to do this fiscally.

On the other hand...f**k you!

They may as well admit that at least part of the reason they went this way was to combat piracy. It would be interesting to see if the customers lost through this strategy is greater than the amount of customers lost through piracy.

News Comments > Next Call of Duty Tidbits?

Shocker! As long as this series sells they will keep making new versions that are rehashes of the old ones. This doesn't make them bad games nor does it make them bad value for money as many people will gladly fork over the money for them. I bought my copy for 45 for the PC and am happy with my purchase. Campaign was same-old crap but fun nonetheless but the multiplayer is so far pretty tight. A guilty pleasure.

The game looks interesting but they shouldn't stick the X-Com name in front of it. If it was a turn-based third-person shooter or semi-turn based game it would be something different.

News Comments > Mists of Pandaria Sales Disappointing?
69. Re: Mists of Pandaria Sales Disappointing? Sep 29, 2012, 05:54 Bopper
 
Bubble has burst and people want something different. That being said, I purchased and am having fun playing my pandaren monk as a casual player but the majority of MMO players have moved onto GW2/real life and/or want something new.

It is still a good, quality expansion but is indeed more of the same. Nothing wrong with that if that's still your thing, but for many people, it just isn't enough anymore. Having come back to WoW from GW2, I immediately noticed the antiquated engine and game mechanics. Will still probably level to max, check out the new content, maybe raid once or twice then move onto something else

Sort of. I think this is more due to the fact that I am bored of sandbox style mmo's. That and my "gaming community" that has guilds in almost all online games does not have a guild active in TSW due to lack of interest.

I am sure the game will be F2P within 6 months but that doesn't mean it is bad. It at least tries to do something new. It will keep me distracted until GW2 at least.

DLC should be extra content that is made after development. The price of the DLC goes towards paying for the production of the new content. This kind of day one DLC or any kind of day one DLC is just plain balls.

News Comments > Diablo III Open Beta Weekend

I am glad that people have obviously the same (bad) feeling that I had when I entered the Diablo III beta. When I posted earlier this week in a Diablo III news post that I liked Path of Exile much more, I was accused of being associated with the PoE developer (which I am not). I joined the Diablo III beta and played through the first (beta) act. Then I started looking around and found PoE. I bought me a 10$ beta ticket and guess what: All the things that I was missing from Diablo III where there:

- The graphics were IMHO much better (crisp versus blurry)
- The skill tree was amazing
- The rune system was cool


Now before people start shooting me again for bringing the PoE comparison: I cannot say anything about balance or endgame or longtime fun, because I am only lvl 10 Templar in PoE).

I just understand the frustration of people in this thread and can share it.

Thx for listening.

Michael

I bought 3 beta tickets for PoE and don't regret it, I enjoyed playing the game and am glad to support indie studios. In my opinion though it doesn't even compare to Diablo 3.

The combat was quite stale when I tested it. Some of the skills were so badly designed you couldn't even use them effectively, (Leaping Smash moon physics for example). The graphics were pretty cool for an indie game. Crisp, decent lighting but the art direction had no soul and lacked the polish of D3.

It was also very slow and I became infintely bored within 2 days with it. The skill system was pretty coold and the talents interesting but I disliked the flow of the game and spamming potions became a bore.

You forgot Naughty Dog.

Adjusting employee bonuses according to metacritic scores? This seems like a very bad idea as reviews are (or are meant to be at least partially) opinion pieces on a product and thus can range widely. This also helps promote the kind of back-scratching that happens between publications and game publishers where good review scores are rewarded with benefits i.e. early reviews, press access and complementary handjobs.

This kind of bonus model would make more sense for an indie developer since an indie game may not sell well but the developers' can still be rewarded and encouraged to keep making quality games by the publisher despite the number of sales.

Bonuses should be handed out in accordance with game sales. The best thing you could do is publish the game yourself to then have total freedom to do what you want with the money generated, i.e. Notch sharing out his dividends with all his employees, which was an epic win on his part.

Errrr...this is basically an entirely new game and concept with the Max Payne name slapped on it. I wish they could have just called it something else but slapping a 2 or a 3 on the end of a title helps sell a game even if it has nothing to do with the originals

Still, might be a good game, who knows. Rockstar is a quality dev.

Will probably look nice but we have yet to see the full potential of even UE3 because console processing power is holding back the limits of what developers will do. If the next-gen consoles come around 2014 then it is likely that devs will start making launch titles using UE4 and new engines right around now.
