News Comments > Anthem Lead Ben Irving Leaving BioWare
12. Re: Anthem Lead Ben Irving Leaving BioWare Aug 16, 2019, 13:31 Alamar
 
I find all this publisher worship (positive or negative) to be silly, but I was never into celebrity obsession (even in gaming) either...

I don't care what EA or Activision are doing... Whether I buy their games or not... If an interesting game comes out, I don't much care who made it... It's judged on it's own. Thinking all future games from some pubs, or devs, will be shit, is just asinine.

I also thoroughly enjoyed Anthem, though I did 'burn out' on it fairly quickly. Just went back and obsessed over Division 2 though, so maybe I'll do the same with Anthem next... I'm sure both games have some nice improvements since I played them around launch.

I looked into the base game with their recent (quite large) sale... But holy hell, are people bashing the update. Wasn't sure I'd get much out of the game as it was, but I steered my $5 or so away due to that.

That's such bullshit... I don't want to wait a few hours, or half a day to start playing... I'm canceling and waiting 6 months instead...

So I was planning on Amara/Siren first... But that FL4K tree looks more fun... Nice to see the series finally get more active skill variety too : )

There's my girl!

I've started each game with the Siren, and I'm looking forward to 'more of the same' : )

I think I liked the Zane intro video more though.

hahahahhaa.... OMG... While the video is entertaining...

"Unlocked Resolution"
"Unlocked Framerate"

Anyhow... For an actual interesting Tetris mechanic gameplay experience, I highly recommend some competitive Trick Towers ; )

This was like the only game on Steam that actually made me wish I had a VR headset to try out. HOWEVER,I'm not the type to buy hardware for 1 game so I don't think I'll ever get a chance to check it out.

How can you call yourself a gamer if you don't buy hardware for a single game? NES for Super Mario, Genesis for Sonic, etc, etc... Maybe I just had too much money as a kid heh...

For someone who lives in a country that gets screwed on regional pricing you'd be looking for deals too via key resellers. Blame the greedy publishers for this mess. Hell, I remember for Mass Effect 3 EA was selling it for half-price in Mexico through Origin so I, and a ton of other people, just used a VPN to buy a key and saved myself 50% more than what I would have paid here for the exact same product. Fuck the pubs.


Just because you're shitty, doesn't mean the rest of our country is... Don't use us to justify your greedy excuses.

This argument gets so tiring, the current micro-transactions currently are nothing ore them cosmetic items that can be obtained by just playing the game. You dont have to buy anything to play the game or any missions.

Whats going to evolve now will be much worst. They will be adding all kinds of stuff that will be game breaking items. Watch and see!

This argument gets so tiring, the fear mongering about how the game is going to change to P2W...

I personally thoroughly enjoyed D2, and would like to go back to it, again, at some point... But going F2P does absolutely nothing for those that already threw some money at it, but I guess that's the point... But it makes me sad.

They're going to give away a great deal of content, and then the people that were on the fence previously might enjoy it enough to pay for the new stuff.

Bill Borre wrote on Jun 4, 2019, 10:23:
the plan is to keep the game at full price for longer than is typical and offer free DLC, rather than lower the price over time and charge for additional content

I doubt that would work because the market seems to favor new releases with initial sales which degrade over time.

Hard to say... Some people will love it... But those on the fence may not pick it up for even longer due to it...

My personal pref, if selling a game with future content, would be to offer it based on the expected total content... If the game ships with half, sell it for $20, then add some DLC, four times, each increasing the price by $5, so the sooner you bought it, the more value it was... I also realize there would be a huge backlash, even if it was stated, very clearly, up front... And a better way may be to make the game $30 at launch, and just keep adding DLC to a one time 'bundle' at $10, so those that never wanted to spend more, get it at $30, or on sale at some point, and those that like it, spent the extra $10, and get extra content out of it as time passes...

The problem isn't that there are a number of folks that fall into the category meeting the criteria for a 'gaming disorder'... The problem is that a crap ton of ass hats will claim that every (or most) gamer suffers from that diagnosis.

I've even posted a while back calling him out as a corporate shill.

You do have to realize this hyberbole is actually what invalidates your argument, though... I hope...

'Another reason to stick with Defender'... Ya, because they'll be made aware of the last minute changes MS makes before releasing a build...

I dont trust them one bit, I will never use their store.

Ill pirate their games first before I use that bullshit store front for a game.

So is it one thing or the other? Either you understand what he's saying, and know why it's a non issue, or you're concerned about security, and don't know enough to project yourself when pirating stuff... Piracy is a malware cesspool, which people like you are claiming is better, which I have to assume is due to gross ignorance...

Epic store exclusive! That's bullshit. I only buy exclusives from Steam, Ubisoft, Blizzard, Microsoft, Bethesda, Origin, and Playstation.

I WILL NEVER ACCEPT EPIC STORE!

This is beautiful ; )

Gotta wonder though... Are any of the Steam, UPlay, Blizzard, Bethesda, or Origin exclusives timed? The XB/PS ones often are, and others often aren't, but that's kind of unrelated given development can be significantly different between those devices.

Maybe people have an easier time ignoring, or justifying non-timed exclusives...

The game looks like it needs about another year in the oven so no loss.

How do you conclude this?

I just hope he stood up before pulling it out...

Regarding the Epic Exclusivity... What's a huge non-issue...
