... a chance to go behind the political scene and see how the sausage is made

Made? How about getting that sausage polished by a Ms Lewinsky and stuff like that? If it's called a simulator it better be accurate!

Yup. PUBG's been top dawg since March consistently every fucking week after week after week...
No CoD, no AssCreed, no Middle Earth, no GTA, no Skyrim, no Witcher has been able to dethrone it. Sad but true.

Well, anyone who still has not learned the lesson that you do not, under NO circusmtances whatsoever, buy these AAA MTX-infested casual shitfest grinders on release day, deserves all the disappointments that go along with their piss-poor taste or their complete inability to control their purchase behavior.
If the latter is the problem, I would actually suggest to get medical help (see a fucking shrink) before it's too late. Seriously.

What fools.

Whether it's Witcher Star Wars, Mass Effect Star Wars, Dead Space Star Wars... we don't give a fuck. People just want a AAA single-player Star Wars (C)RPG. Come the fuck on.

Err... the Visceral game was gonna be Uncharted Star Wars or Tomb Raider Star Wars (but even shallower probably) and not a (C)RPG.

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.

Yeah, the original deal was:

- Ship sales for real money only until the end of the pledge campaign (November 26 - 2012 or whatever it was)
- LTI an exclusive original backer perk and never to return again
- Squadron 42 (in its fucking entirety and no fucking retarded episodic piecemeal shit) + SC to be released by the end of 2014.
OK, barely anyone (except the extremist cultist CR fanbois) believed this one and most of us mentally added six to twelve months on top of that but if anyone would have suggested -back then- no Squadron 42 at all by the end of 2017, you would have been declared completely bonkers)

However, I'm guessing that Retired...

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

... just forgot "still" or "at this point" when he wrote his post.
I definitely do not get why anyone would have still put money into this game after the Star Marine debacle in 2015 at the very, very, very latest.

People might have a different breaking point though, depending on when they first pledged and when they started to get fed up with the endless stream of lies.

I personally have not put any significant amount of money into the game since 2012 (original campaign) because I was starting to get pissed off when they broke the LTI and no more ships for real money promises in 2012 already.

Adding subs was kinda shady, too. It was first advertised as a means for people to turn their contributions into smaller payments instead of bigger sums which not everyone might be able to afford. And then they kind of stealth-changed it into "subs money is just for marketing and for increased communication from us to you".

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!"

^ this

Under normal circumstances you would say that SC has hit a new low but they started hitting the lowest possible depths with massive lies ("last chance LTI", "no more ships for real money after the pledge campaign ends") back in 2012 already so this is just a continuation of their low blow streak. What a fucking muppet show that "game" has become... jeez.

By the way, semantics, I know, but still... the CD Projekt thing was called an expansion pass and not a season pass.

And in addition to what Creston said: This expansion pass delivered exactly what it said it would. They said beforehand what it would contain.
They specified the exact content and gave a game length estimate which turned out to be very conservative. You could easily spend quite a bit more than the advertised 10 and 20 hours in both expansions.

It was an expansion pass and delivered two full blown expansions. One smaller one and a larger one. Exactly as advertised. No bullshit. No scam. No hidden fuckshit. Just straight, honest business.


Edit @ Slick: The point is that season passes have always been cancer. (Non-cosmetic-exclusive )Microtransactions are cancer+++ and loot boxes are cancer+++++++++ . Capisce, d00d?

CJ_Parker white-knighting the practice of community-dividing, pocketbook-lightening season pass DLC.

Now I've seen everything.

Full retard confirmed. Which part of "fucking shitty season pass" or calling it "dog shit" was unclear? In which world is calling something fucking shitty or dog shit somehow "white-knighting"?

Are you fucking insane?

I think it's funny how prestigious studios like CD Projekt Red snipe EA with that cunty tweet saying: "We'll leave greed to others" while The Witcher 3 released with 2 $30 DLC content packs.

The whole thing is such a mess.

EA fucked up the implementation, but I still think the overall strategy is a direction that the industry needs to go, ESPECIALLY for multiplayer games. I can't be dealing with segmenting the community 2 months after launch based on who bought the season pass or not.

For all the shitstorm furore that the piss poor progression implementation wrought, people have lost track of the one actually redeeming feature of this model. NO SEASON PASS.

Seriously... have you gone FULL retard, bro? What. the. actual. fuck.

The game having MTs instead of a fucking shitty season pass is like "hey guys we're not serving dog shit this year but instead you'll get a nice cat shit pie ... ya like?".

And YOU fell for it, you flaming idiot.

Well, if this fucks multiplayer gaming into the ground then I can not wait for it. Bring it on!
Bring back the glory days of single player games w/o microtransactions, loot boxes and all that retarded shit.
Let's have deep gameplay, reasonably well written plots, interesting characters, great worlds to explore that are more than farming grounds and let us go back to generally more rich gaming experiences with a beginning and an end instead of open world, open end, open wallet bull-fucking-shit. Tyvm.

Games really fun.. gameplay you'll have a blast playing as the mechanics are well done.

LOL

So how much booze did it take the Tipsy McStagger to arrive at this conclusion. Is it possible to "have a blast" or to feel that the "mechanics are well done" with less than a 99% blood alcohol level?

Or they could just pump out Battlefront 3 and release it next year.

Nah. Episode IX is 2019 so BF3 will be 2019, too. But they will probably push a gigantic bantha poodoo load of microtransaction-infested "free" DLC next year.

Yeah, 6 years actually....

The five years part of our esteemed colleague's post was related to people throwing money at this clusterfuck.
He (like Blue in the actual newsbit) is 100% correct that it has been five years "only".
The game was revealed on 10/10/2012. I still have my golden ticket here to reminisce that day.

Development started about six years ago but the money collection from gullible fools (myself sadly included though I have not spent a single cent on the game since 2013) has only been going on for just over five years.

Is there anyone actually excited about the Xen part?

Nope. Xen was a total coitus interruptus that turned a great game into an abysmal shitfest for the last couple of hours. It's one of the reasons I consider HL completely overrated.
Kinda like FarCry which went to shit when those retarded monkeys showed up. Coitus interruptus big time, man.

d00d...

The 6th commandment of internet trolling is...

"Never -EVER- squander a chance to take a big old dump on Microsoft when the opportunity presents itself"

See. Since the MS store was mentioned in the newsbit it was mandatory (m-a-n-d-a-t-o-r-y!!!) to troll Microshit. Not my fault!
