I'm certain that the cost of the game versus the revenue made so far has them in the red. It wasn't a quick switch to pay to win, but it might be a necessary one to compensate for the launch bomb. They have a debt to pay off for their investment, even if the reason they tanked initially was all of their own making.

Frankly, if you don't like it. Don't play the game. But at the end of the day, these are people trying to run a profitable company, which means jobs for people like me and you.

With the success of PUBG and then the massive success of Fortnite, these guys must feel extra crunchy.

Download the WB Cinema app and if enough people pay a $2 fee when prompted the projectionist will play an EXCLUSIVE post-credits scene!

I've actually enjoyed playing the first level 10 times on this game. Definitely worth a buck, if not $10.

*******************
LIP SYNC BUG from 1.9 has never been fixed after two years!!!!
*******************

It's really ridiculous that Bethesda still promotes this game after introducing a immersion-breaking bug between 1.8 and 1.9, and then NEVER fixing it.

********************
It's so sad. WARNING Do not buy if this matters to you. There is no way to use 1.8 on Steam.

I've had a horror story. Where I wanted to get the special edition of TESIV Oblivion. But because I bought it with TESIII and TESIV vanilla, I had to abandon both copies of the game in order to buy the sale of TESIV oblivion special edition.

Getting this to happen through customer service was an abysmal experience which took like five days. They allowed me to forfeit TESIII and rebuy it at $5 to get TESIV special edition for another $5, because they weren't able to upgrade my TESIV vanilla to the special edition (even though it was only $1.50 more).

For having spent thousands of dollars on Steam for over 10 years, I thought that was really petty of them. Meanwhile, in the Origin camp, the Origin CSRs took my DVD keys over IM chat to add games to my Origin profile. When some of the keys didn't work, they gave me the games anyways (and the upgraded editions as well). I thought that was stellar.

I agree. This is very misleading and a poor choice of words.

Blue can you clarify the headline?

Remember when company's let us Beta test their games for free? Or even paid us to beta test them? I was watching some streams of this game and it looked like it would fill my crafting needs for a bit... then I started looking into it and it seems like they want to just destroy it.

We're showing our age. It's a new generation.

Their website is kind of bare. Does their service supercede the native matching of the games they support?

20% extra off discounted COD games on GameFly with code GFDMAR20. By the way, Black Ops, MW2, and MW3 all activate on Steam.

Great question, StingingVelvet. They probably look at how often users access the multiplayer feature and deduct from those stats. But I'm just guessing.
