I think at this point he's literally just trying to keep this thing afloat because he's too stubborn to admit that his pet project didn't pan out.

How many staff does he need to pay every month at Boss Key? Forty? Fifty? The game isn't selling even 0.1% to keep that cost afloat, so he's just hemorrhaging cash right now. I guess he has some really forgiving VCs tied up in it or something.

Overwatch was always going to be a big thing to go up against, and nobody could have predicted that PUBG was going to become the biggest thing to hit the PC since... Diablo 3, so take your licks and move on. Your game isn't going to become a hit.

Lol

Also, paid progression has existed in BF3, BF4, and BF1, and no one really batted an eyelash. You've been able to purchase kit and vehicle unlocks with cold hard cash as a convenience. This is mechanically identical to paying for card packs which contain the same "unlockable by playing the game" content.


That's not really the same. You could buy those things directly in BF3,4,1, right?

How is that the same as having to buy loot boxes to try to get it? Say a super awesome weapon is locked behind an unlock that requires you to get a 50 kill streak. That's going to be impossible for 99.99% of the population.

If they let you buy that gun for a dollar, it's shit, but hey, at least you can fork over a buck to get that super awesome gun.

With a lootbox, they say "Buy lootboxes, and that gun will have a 0.000042% drop rate!"

How are the two similar, besides they're both shit, though to a varying degree?

I'm suggesting there is in experiences, shared culture, and taste.
Do you think you could create a marketing plan that would appeal to urban youths without offending them as well as, y'know, someone with that background?

Whaaaaaaa? Shit son, I'm hip with that lingo, yo! Fresh to the beat n'shit! Urban Youth is en fleek and so am I!

Thanks Twitter.

Twitter’s briefing to the Senate intelligence committee Sept. 28 infuriated its ranking Democrat, Sen. Mark Warner, who said the company failed to grasp the seriousness of the congressional investigation

Lol. They grasp it just fine, Senate critter. They just don't give a shit, because for all your grandstanding, you never DO anything to companies that flatout tell you to go fuck yourself.

If you get a duplicate Star Card in a crate, you will get crafting parts which you can then use to help upgrade the Star Card of your choice.

And lastly, you have to earn the right to be able to upgrade Star Cards and unlock most Weapons. You can only upgrade or unlock them if you have reached a high enough rank, which is determined by playing the game.

So in other words, if you don't play enough, and you get a duplicate Star Card : Fuck you.

But watching the final 2-4 guys go at it in a very small circle? It becomes insane for frenetic building and action. Guys building staircases up mountains, up building or into the air to flank, great big towers or mazes of walls - all while being shot at. A blast.

Yeah that sounds very cool.

At least stop throwing pizza on the ROOF, people. Just throw them into their kitchen, so they can be eaten.

10 million people played in 2 weeks. Ok so it's also Free to play. So how many active players did it have at it's peak?

10 million people for a grand total of 44 million hours. So most everyone just played it once, went "Meh", and then fired up PUBG again?

To be fair, I watched the trailer for it, and it looks pretty fun. Being able to build traps etc in a battle royale seems like a brilliant idea, because it's fun to turtle up against other players.

Also when have publishers ever exercised moderation? You guys know where this is headed. Defend it now to your own chagrin later on.

This is the Diablo 3 corollary.

I think the ESRB has little say in this matter, since they have absolutely zero legislative capability. This will need to be addressed by Congress / the pertinent gambling commissions. And the publishers will just write a $12 check to either one of those collections of critters, after which loot boxes will be declared "AN ESSENTIAL NECESSITY OF LIFE!"
