Oh and for those keeping track, D2 already has microtransactions for cosmetic items.

Having cosmetics for sale is no big deal IMHO, doesn't disrupt or give an advantage in-game.

Based on what I have been lightly reading, it sounds like SW:BF2 took it to extremes comparatively.

It doesn't and some of these guys are just being assholes about it. The Cosmetic items change from week to week, and you dont have to spend a single penny in this game to get any of them, as you level up which is pretty damn fast, you get the bright engrams and a chance to win some of those.

I've gotten so damn many of them that I actually breake many of them down for dust and use them to buy XP tokens that also give you better drop rates in game.

Some of you need to get a fricking life and know when to bitch about some of this stuff and when not to. EAs monetizing of Star Wars is where you all need to focus a lot of this hate, that game deserves that kind of attention.

The new add on for Destiny 2 is actually damn good. I've been enjoying it. Played over 2 hours of it and I'm still not done. So its been a pretty good story.

You guys are unbelievable, even when something is free you all still find ways to bitch.

Some things are not worth it, even when free.

Not that I know with this game, I got it in some bundle in the past year or so and haven't played it yet.

Thats beside the point, this game was never that bad or how some people try to make it out as bad.

Never look a gift horse in the mouth. Good words to live by.

How about don't buy it because the game is content starved and marred by incredulous design decisions. Not getting a Sparrow until you've beaten the game? What the actual fuck? NO CHAT?!?

Nioh swept this game totally under the rug for me.

Yeah I loved their statement about commitment to player/clan socialization...lotta work to be done when you fuckers don't even have clan chat.

Yea agreed there, that has to be the biggest pain in the ass for this game. No chat, no way of hooking up with others to do raids or Nightfalls without going to Discord to group up.

Bungie has got to add matchmaking to the Raids and Nightfall. or at least create a group finder portal in the game.

I have no idea what Bungie is thinking when they do stupid stuff like this.

Impressive conflation going on here.

I'm willing to be shown what I got wrong here, but you don't say what it is. I know a lot of what he did was just buying items, but I found the part that involved gambling on CS:GO skins along with his admission to being a gambling addict to be relevant to the topic.

Dont feed the troll Blues, hes missing the whole point about how dangerous loot crates and in game items are. And why this topic is a hot topic for many and why this kind of garbage needs to go.

This is really disappointing, I cant believe with all thats going on and all of the complaints that Bungie still doesn't get it.

I was so pissed when I read you cant even use a sparrow in the new zone because its so small. That really pisses me off to no end.

Bungie needs to just go and release the entire first game as an addon to make up for a lot of the short falls that this game has. That at least would take away some of the pain.

So no one wants a linear single-player game anymore? Does anyone have numbers on how well the Doom and Wolfenstein remakes did? Because they were classical linear single-player shooters!

I feel like I'm regularly arguing with people here that claim linear games are awful. Where are they now? As soon as EA agrees with them suddenly they see the light?

Well, I wouldn't be one of them, I happen to like Linear games. I dont mind them at all. I like both open worlds and linear. as long as the story is good and the game plays well. I'm all in. makes no difference.

EA is just so full of shit, you cant believe anything they say anymore.

And Star Citizen backers is showing gamers how it's done!

Again, dont go putting all backers into the same basket. I did not back this game with ships buying or any other dumbass monetized items. I only backed the game to buy a copy of the game at the time as did many of us that are now getting dragged down with the ship.

Us original backers thought we were going to get a space flight sim game in an open world environment. Not this abomination its turned into now.

You put money into this game, you are a fool.

dont go bundling all of us in that context. I originally backed this game when it was in kickstarter. Back then it was something that looked like it was going to be a real Freelancer successor.

little did any of us original backers know how this would snowball out of control into the feature creep monster greed fest thats its become.

Thats not our fault that Roberts greed would turn this game into the bullshit its becoming now. Yes, I could have gotten my money back, but I'm only 60 dollars invested.

So I figured WTF, stick with it and see where this ends. Im pretty sure I'm not going to like what I find. But thats on me at this point.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Chris Roberts saw the shit that Richard Garriott is pulling off, and thought "Holy hell. This way I don't even have to have artists draw pictures of pretty spaceships! I can literally sell just NOTHING!"

Hey, now. He's not selling "nothing." He's selling chunks of procedurally generated planet, and a ship to land it on.

Oh, sorry, I stand corrected.

I mean, what are you even going to fucking DO with this land? There's no way to build anything on it, and his developers sure as hell aren't going to build a base for you. They're still 99 systems behind on their content creation.

Edit : Since I'm bored at work, I read through the FAQ, and apparently there is a way to build stuff. It's through something that I'm pretty sure is not developed/working yet, but apparently they're not just selling empty land with no way to do anything with it.

That will come in 2018.

Edit 2 :
Why is the UEE selling claim licenses?
The UEE sells claim licenses for the same reasons as any government

Greed? I mean, I know governments are shitty, but they don't just raise taxes for the greedy hell of it.



Actually, you would be wrong, have you seen the latest bullshit the Govt is now trying to pull with propriety taxes? Oh yea, they are now complementing not allowing home owners to claim property tax on our tax returns. This country is falling in to the black hole of shit.

If this happens, they are saying home prices will drop in value by 10 to 15 percent. And start pushing people away from buying homes if you cant get any tax breaks for owning a home. Fucking Govt!!

Yeah, sure. They pulled it? Yeah after Bob Iger told them to. Lies and damn lies. Why people giving these motherfuckers money is beyond me.

This is another game that I really wish would die. And I original backed it. I wish I hadn't now.

Roberts would sell his mother and sister in a two bit saloon if he could make a few dollars from them.

"EA, we are watching how players are playing the game"

In essence, so we can run the game into the dirt even more by trying to fuck it up with even more micro transactions.

EA sucks, they will never learn the lessons they just learned. They are doomed to fail. I really hope Disney not just pulls the licenses from them, but yanks it so hard that EA goes into a tailspin, crashes and dies the slow death they deserve.

I find all of this hilariously funny, they have lost way more money then they would have ever gained from this.

Go suck on that for a while EA. Next fucking time do the right thing and make a game for gamers and not your bottom line.

And good luck EA trying to recover from this mess. it will take years!!

No, but with a little luck you can find this superpower in a loot box.

There are no loot boxes in this game, so dont try to make this game out to be like that shitty EA Star Wars game.
