News Comments > EA's $1B DLC Goal
26. Re: EA's $1B DLC Goal Aug 27, 2014, 02:02 headshot
 
i always buy the addons (as CE) for wow, sc 2 and diablo 3. it's a nobrainer for me, because i always sink more than enough time in those games to justify the money spent. and i even use the character transfer services from time to time to consolidate my most ancient toons on one realm, to build my legacy!

that being said, those are worthwhile investments because wow will be around for another decade. but if i bought a DLC for madden this year, what about next year / madden? those DLC were good for six to nine months and then what? new game, new DLC, start all over again? how can the DLC content for thew new madden justify the money spent for merely one year, if everything is outdated with the next iteration?

investing upon my wow account over nine years is something i can do because it lasts. it builds something bigger than my normal game purchases are. but buying those things, knowing that they release wow 2 next year? never.

haystack in notre dame? okay.

i received black flag with my geforce last year and the naval combat was just great. farming dem collectibles on the other hand.. i hate myself for being a completionist but i also hate blips on my minimap.

as for AC:U, yeah i don't know. it is the same in look and feel, i recognize the sounds of the interface or some ambient sounds, i see the same mechanics and a few new features. the graphics are okay, but HD french is still french. i don't think that this game improves on the others in the series in terms of unlocking all those towers and everything.

Press (Y) to subvert corporate monopoly with hax

Press (B) to solve all of your problems with murder like an evil Neo

This. It's exactly the point I wanted to make. They can call these "new missions" but you end up with the same simplistic gameplay mode all the time.

I enjoyed playing the game allot but in retrospect it was kinda bad. The only thing really awesome about it are the online invasions.

exactly what I thought. (Q) just solves everything. and this is what those intrusion puzzles in watch_dogs look like. only more complicated. and from 1991.

News Comments > Watch Dogs Patch Plans & Homebrew Visual Upgrade

i can't wrap my head about some contradictions this game has..

- five police cars and a chopper follow me, i jump into a board, scuttle under a bridge and -poof- they lost me.
- i profile someone and he has the status "had to take a second mortgage" or "saves for a new car" or something like that. i hold Q and transfer 1.600$ from his account. why am i such a dick?
- i injure or kill a civilian and my rep decreases. i am a dick to every living person, smash cars and every breakable thing on the streets (except 10cm/3,9in "high" brick walls), neutralize cop cars (they even BURN in their cars!!) and damage helicopters and nothing happens.
- i commit crimes to one person with no camera around (which wouldn't call the cops as cameras don't work that way in this game) and with a silenced pistol and some random citizen around the block calls the cops. GTA 4 does this similar.
- pressing Q while driving 150km/h or 93 miles per hour "hacks" blockers, electronic signs, steampipes, pedestrians' phones or bridges in a matter of a second.
- why does chicago need hackable steampipes?

there are many more points which leads me to not believe anything this game world has to offer. if i were a telepathic/telekinetic superhero or villain, i could understand aidens "abilities" to alter his surroundings to some degree. but i am a middle aged weirdo and dick with a cell phone. a 100% waterproof cell phone, by the way.

i wait for GTA 5. that is a world i can live in.

i wonder if they have their fourth episode out by the time they release advanced warfare.

most of the games i play on a daily basis (blizzard games) last for a few years before they release a successor. i just couldn't buy something like CoD in these times, because it would be old quite fast.

well, talk about lost sales. i now have two options (if i were to buy it):

1. buy a censored version after the RtCW desaster and try to mod/bloodpatch it via a plethora of files and hoops to jump through

or

2. pirate it and be done with the matter.

either way, too much work for a maybe mediocre game.

News Comments > Titanfall Beta Not Restricted to Preorders
17. Re: Titanfall Beta Not Restricted to Preorders Feb 4, 2014, 04:07 headshot
 
it's a shame they use an engine that old. what I love about battlefield 4 is the destruction you can wreak upon buildings. sometimes I narrowly escape a tank and hide inside a small building, only to have the tank explode the wall with a shell and leave me exposed and kicked out of my comfort zone.

now there's titanfall with big mechs and you can't even destroy a wall from what i've seen. I don't like static shooters anymore.

News Comments > Diablo III Patch to "Cut the Legs Out from the Auction House"
15. Re: Diablo III Patch to Aug 30, 2013, 01:31 headshot
 
hmm. I for one don't like to interact THAT much with other players. I had my share of trading, trade accounts, bartering and the always present feeling in the back of my brain that I'm getting ripped off. either because the item's a dupe or the player a scammer or the price is too high.

sure, it was nice to browse the trade forums (which lists all the items available for trade, just like an auction house would for example. wink.) and engage in trading. but you also had buyouts or fast trades and very little interaction with the seller.

in the end, I only did fast trades or gave my trade account details via PM. the difference to the AH in diablo 3 was the time it took to finally receive the item. I for one like the rmah in diablo 3, simply because me and my girlfriend got about 1.000 euros out of it in two months playing. it could have been more, but the game is rather boring. the gold auction house is another thing. the inflation there (50 million gold - about 1.26 or 2.26, dunno, so good items only cost 1.5 billions up) is ridiculous, that is rather sad.

News Comments > EA All-in on Microtransactions
47. Re: EA All-in on Microtransactions Feb 28, 2013, 03:04 headshot
 
i would gladly pay 30 / 30$ for a game and the prospect of DLC for about 15 / 15$ and 5-10 / 5-10$ left for micro transactions. while the DLC would remain optional, the micro transactions would provide a small / medium boost in the game but wouldn't compromise the storyline with, let's say, an uber weapon which normally appears in late game. the DLC would add additional content over the course of one year.

that way i could buy the initial game with 100% content for 30, tie loose ends up over the course of the year if i WANT to invest additional 15 and still have financial room for small boosts.

that would be a fair way to treat a customer and would give him a lot of freedom back. but that would ruin their profits.
