News Comments > The Phantom Pain PvP Not Paywalled

Just a heads up... this is basically what paying equates to:

You get more resources (or whatever.. I think FOBs give more than just resources, maybe the ability to house more personnel).

You also have to pay in-game currency (GMP) to set up security on this FOB, via soldiers, traps, drones, and more.

The more valuable the FOB is, the more valuable of a target it is to other, attacking players.

Attacking players, if successful, can and will make off with some of your soldiers, supplies and possibly more depending on what they fulton out. Defenders, if the attacker was successfully identified as an intruder, can go get these things back (if successful), though.

FOBs are COMPLETELY SEPARATE from the upcoming adversarial team-vs-team multiplayer mode. I don't know if that will have any microtransactions, but I believe there either aren't any, or it's purely cosmetic. Not sure yet.

FOBs are completely optional. And you can also, I believe, disable online functionality, but I'm not sure how/if that can be abused (going 'offline', setting up defenses, raking in resources etc) or if going 'offline' disables having additional FOBs (which seem to be what costs money).

Lastly, keep in mind that FOB resources primarily only affect the single-player progression, and by proxy, I guess, other FOBs. Nothing is exclusive or limited to paying players.

Still, shouldn't have ANY microtransactions, but I'd blame Konami for that one, and also probably thank Kojima there aren't more than that.

...so....a bonafide mobile game that I can play from the comfort of my PC? No thank you.

Am I the only one who felt that this game was just a re-skin of Civ 5? I wasn't very impressed at all and was hoping for more I guess.

I wish Steam themselves would pursue legal action, on behalf of their customers, when these shenanigans are brought to light. No pun intended. Perhaps threat of a lawsuit would keep these types of scams off their service.

Right. So sue people who are probably already broke (likely why they are scamming in the first place) so then you are stuck with legal fees and nothing to show for it.

What would be more effective is to blacklist developers based on shady practices including refusing to Greenlight any other games from them if they are provably dishonest.

Expecting Valve to play each game to completion or whatever before allowing it is nutty.

Your logic makes absolutely no sense. You have to sue the pants off these assholes AND push for criminal charges where applicable to make an example of them -- that is the single most effective deterrent for other would-be scammers. Also, I don't expect Valve to play every game to completion, they simply need to respond to these issues on a case-by-case basis.

This game will obviously fail. It isn't a hat simulator like TF2 is.

But did they ever improve AMD card performance? It ran like shit last time I tried...

After the game was released, they released a few patches with performance tweaks all around. It runs smooth as butter on my AMD card and mines not even all that great.

Hmm, I am thinking a nice Gaben disguise (or TF2 spy) could net us confirmation about HL3.

Great voice cast, not quite sure if it strikes the nostalgia note though.

Yep, it won't be King's Quest unless you can accidentally fall into the water and drown. Repeatedly.

That's cute and all, but I am not buying this until all 72 DLC's and 3 season passes and bugfixes for 51 game breaking issues are released and included in the purchase

Yeah, BF4 is now great.. 2 fucking years after release remember that when you see a MP shooter from Dice (and when you like BF4, always look at Hardline to see how badly EA can fuck up a winning formula)

Right! You'll probably just need to go prone to activate the "you will never get hit by laser fire when prone" bug.

Uh huh, I'll have to try a live demo first before I believe that. And even if that is too legit to quit, there still looks to be major limitations - controling it, having to move around it instead of moving it around - no, not side to side scrolling. And ultimately, keen as that appears to be it also looks to be wholly impractical for the vast majority of games. How would that be a benefit to something like Witcher 3, et al? The idea is cool sure, the practical side of it not so much - unless it's for applied sciences.


Agreed. A neat technology demo for something that has no practical use yet. I only envision this working for games like Tetris or mobile-style games with no graphical horsepower needed.

Wow. I know they are saying 'concurrent users' but the best way to get more concurrent is to add new users. If that's so, then that's a huge increase for only one month!

I'm inclined to also read this as the market mildly rejecting the new modestly powered consoles and going to PC.

Sorry - there is a Steam Summer Sale going on. I myself logged in, checked out the sale, but never logged off -- it stayed connected for 2 days straight. This isn't abnormal during their sales, but you're right, new users and more people checking out the sale likely contributed.

Maybe at the end of this one, they'll do a timeline reboot and start the next series of games off in WW2 again! I mean, time travel isn't so far fetched in this series anymore.

Hey Treyarch how about Call of Duty 3-2 huh? Criminally underrated CoD in my opinion. But hey, robots and explosions!

Black Ops to the Future -- starring Michael J. Fox. Biff would be the obvious choice for the protagonist.
