I'm always wishing I could have heard the planning discussions on products like this. The product is so bad you have to wonder why half the people at the meeting weren't saying, "WTF. One of the worst ideas I've heard in years."

It reminds me of a smartfridge prototype at CES awhile back. The marketing staff were trying their best to come up with features that would make it desirable. "You can always know whats in your fridge!". All you had to do to get this wonderful convenience was scan each item's UPC as it came or left the fridge hahah. Hope your produce is barcoded too.

Or you could just you know, open the damned fridge.

How dare people want to enjoy their luxury activity, ENTITLED MUCH?! People defending "grinding" ITT.

We just need the EA rep himself in here talking about what a sense of accomplishment it is to round things out. Or perhaps he already is.

If EA wants to ship freemium grindathons then fucking do that instead of charging $60 and coming up with a ridiculous currency/progression system.

Telltale took on way too many projects, I understand why but it was just too much to manage.

This is amusing, I've never seen a post with hundreds of thousands of downvotes before... Nobody deserves it more than an EA rep regurgitating PR bullshit.

-406172 (down) votes in 1 day, that's a new record afaik

I'm not surprised and it's well earned, they're literally monetizing annoyance.

It's a prequel, not a remake. It's what happened before the opening of the original where the Norwegians are shooting at the dog.

You're right, its been a long time since I saw it. Regardless of the label I didn't enjoy it as much.

No. It should take more than 40 to "unlock everything". Don't like it, don't buy it, don't play it.

(not defending EA, defending the grind of games in general)

"I want everything NOW!" Screams what is wrong with our society.

Uh this isn't PULL URSELF UP BY UR BOOTSTRAPS shit. It's a god damn luxury activity that people are supposed to enjoy. Of course people shouldn't buy it. They should also voice their displeasure about it because they ultimately like the game but want this ridiculous crap changed.

If you really want to play the "back in the day" shit and interject your personal politics into this then go back to the days of yore where we played games without giant EXP bars and crates. It was still *gasp* fun and holy shit, companies still survived and made money too.

'The Thing' is one of my favorite John Carpenter films, and this is a great article/link.

I just watched it again the other day with a friend who had never seen it before. Still holds up amazingly well.

The 2011 (re)remake isn't bad per se but the introduction of a female character ruins a lot of the alpha male tension and paranoia which made Carpenters so excellent. It's serviceable but not really good.

This is a good one.

About 40h per hero, about 9 heroes are unlockable. 360 hours or ... just a few bucks, eh? This IS grind made to encourage buying those chars instead of playing the game to unlock them.

And this answer is the epitome of lying your customer in the face.

I'm playing the 10h trial right now and I've already unlocked a few heroes, not sure where you get those numbers.

Anyway, should heroes be easy to unlock? i think not


Why should it be difficult? They are already limited by other factors.

Also they're adjusting these upwards from 10,000 credits to 40,000 credits after release. That's just shitty anyway you slice it, purposely giving a false impression to reviewers and others.

This whole game feels like a F2P model with a full price tag. Ugh count me out. I hope others do the same.

Cool, but it doesn't diminish the fact that Borderlands 2 was one of the grindiest games ever. I really hope Randy doesn't forget his noble ethos when BL3 hits, otherwise I can easily see it getting lootboxed out the ass.

Haha yeah, some irony there when his whole game is basically that concept without real money...so far.

You say that jokingly (I assume) but I wouldn't be surprised if the general GOP voter's thoughts on the matter were something along the lines of, "That was more than 35 years ago. It is said and done, let's move on."

Absolutely not. I don't consider myself a "GOP voter" but a lot of my social and economical leanings make me vote for right of center candidates. I still want this guy gone. Just like Anthony Weiner, he is a sexual predator and while this might be stats barred (I have no idea), at the very least he needs to be out of power.

Apparently a NY Times story is about to drop on Louis C.K., blah. Going to watch a few of his shows tonight one last time without this stuff hanging over it.

Just leave me Bill Burr, for the love of god.

Cops in this country see anyone not wearing a badge as target practice. Dogs, cats, people. Doesn't matter. If you're not a fellow cop, you're an enemy combatant. They are indoctrinated into this in their training. Everyone is out to kill them, so they need to be ready to shoot first.

Combine this with a bunch of former military joining up after their deployments treating suburbia like its fucking Fallujah.

I'm sure you've seen it but Peace Officer was a pretty eye opening documentary on the militarization of police in North America.

My buddy ran out and got an Xbox One X. I asked him what he was playing last night and he said "Red Dead Redemption". Buying a $500 console to play a third party game from 2009. At least its a good game

Who's to say Spacey actually did any of this stuff? There's no shortage or people out there willing to lie and jump on the bandwagon hoping to cash on some quick fame and fortune. Maybe he did get drunk and pushy at points but that's a long goddamn way off from rape. Remember what Lou Reed said, "Don't believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear." It's just way too easy these day to convict people in the court of public opinion without any actual real knowledge of the truth and that's wrong.

His vague apology and convenient timing on coming out indicate more than a little guilt to me. The number of accusations is too many to ignore but yeah I hope someone presses charges to make it formal. As for whether its rape or not, many of them were teenagers at the time, not even sure they could legally consent depending on the jurisdictions. Let's say you're right (which you never are), at best hes a still a fucking creep not worth defending.

We're at over 100 people with Weinstein, do you still think he's innocent too?

"the dog came charging at me, grabbing at my legs and my boots". Yeah that's kind of what dogs do with strangers near their property deputy dipshit. Shot a 12 pound terrier because it humped his boot, what a tough guy.

What a fucking thug.

It wasn't just sega, there was a recent article about how much trouble they had in general working on the game. It was their first game developed outside of the bioware toolset/template, on their own so to speak, so they may have been a bit overambitious with it.

Interesting, I'll hunt around for it. I remember one of the things I hated about AP was the weird check pointing they would do. It felt so out of place in the kind of game they were making. The combat was awkward as hell and the difficulty spikes were bizarre. They kind of lulled you into a false sense of security, thinking you could go full stealth but some sections were insane without a leveled combat skill.

But damned if it didn't have some of the best RP and branching I've seen in a game.
