Tropico 4 had 11 DLC releases spanning over 3 years, and with Tropico 5 you had another. let me count.. 12 DLC releases

He was playing at the fact that this is nothing more than just another "same old" release, aside from a few new buildings this looks exactly like Tropico 5 and 4.

Basically, they are selling the same game slightly changed for 6+ years now.

So you're upset that they've cornered a particular market and are making money? Or that it's not really yearly releases like they implied? Never mind that people were more upset with the feature retraction in 5 vs 4, which caused them to patch in a bunch of stuff free too. Out of curiosity then, just how far do you think they should move to make the game into something that isn't the same? Bail on the audience that likes the title the way it is, or simply piss off everyone pull an EA/Bioware and fuck everything up.

I am not upset I just dislike re-releasing and "up-DLC'ing" the same game over and over again. Whether the person you replied to originally was upset, I dunno. But me? Nah, I just don't really care about this series anymore. I got too much exposure to Tropico DLC releases and now I can't tell one game from the other.. like seriously, I can't tell which Tropico this video is showing if the title weren't giving it away, that is ,P

And where do I want to move this series? Back to where it really started to be a good series, obviously Tropico 2 - Pirate Cove. ^^

Ps.: And one last thing, this Tropico 6 isn't developed by the makers of Tropico 3/4/5 .. so yeh. Maybe it will be worth to consider as a new fun and different entry in the series after all

There is a lot of re-playability. Unlike a lot of RPGs these days, there is no way to see and do everything in one game. There are four possible endings, with dozens of possible "middle" parts depending on the choices you made during the conquest and during the game.

A New Game+ mode was added a few patches ago.

So I guess I have to reinstall this at some point.. ^^ I only played it on release through and aside from who I killed and didn't kill I never felt like I had any real choice, though the combat doesn't exactly make me all happy at the thought of replaying it.

Marketing Hearthstone to young audiences is not wrong, but making it look like you got any chance if you join now *IS* you gonna grind for 3+ months to even get access to the expansions.

The Tropico games are fun, but they are killing it with these yearly releases.

2009 - Tropico 3
2011 - Tropico 4
2014 - Tropico 5

"Yearly releases."

Tropico 4 had 11 DLC releases spanning over 3 years, and with Tropico 5 you had another. let me count.. 12 DLC releases

How does the Blues community feel about this game?

It's passable, certainly much better than PoE, but not when it comes to combat. I dunno what it is with Obsidian and combat, but PoE and Tyranny both have an incredibly annoying combat/ability/magic system with tons of trash mobs that give no XP or loot. Tyranny cut this down a BIT but.. not really enough. If you explore the "Wall" for example, you will encounter a ton of extremely tough "out of nowhere" difficulty because enemies have abilities that were not a thing the first 10 hours of the game. That might be interesting, but the game just throws 5 of these at you at random, which is really crap.

On the other hand, I really REALLY like the companions in this game, who are all wild own personalities. What I dislike is that none of them are explored in-depth (This expansion fixes that for 3 of em, but not the 3 of em that I would have wanted, oh well)

In the end I played it through and enjoyed it. Once. Re-playability is nearly zero and there is no new-game+ either ;/

What really bothers me is the Paradox DLC policy.... Tyranny should have a big 30$ expansion, instead we get trickle down DLC's that each on their own are irrelevant, but that all together cost more than the base-game.

If you guys read the article, they don't address the "controversy," nor do they apologize for it. It's as tongue-in-cheek as it gets.

Not that I'd expect the usual suspects here to read the article. Nor do I think the complaints were particularly widespread or more than a handful of people.

To be fair, it IS a link to Kotaku

Yeah, but it's also Cutter and MA, who seem incapable of reading articles.

And yeah, it's Kotaku, who downplay this "controversy" as saying it's "a little insensitive" and "in context it's a little less harmful." They also put "cultural insensitivity" in quotes, meaning it's not their argument. And the discussion they link to is someone calling out the people complaining.

So it seems even Kotaku isn't taking this seriously. But hey, if Cutter can complain about kids on his lawn, he will.

Those annoying kids with the tiny dirty grabby hands. He should damn well complain about those

(I guess nobody is gonna get that reference, sorry, I see myself out)

Ugh, March? I really want this - to be good - but I'll wait. PDS!

Well Early Access before that, I guess it could really end up in the end of Q2 if things go badly... let's hope it will be good

It's nice that both Guild and Anno get sequels that try to really fix things and improve things again, I had nearly given up hope for both...

Steam entry is here, with (very early) screenshots
http://store.steampowered.com/app/311260/The_Guild_3/

Developer is GolemLabs though.. who made.. exactly nothing for a decade. So I doubt they have the technical skills to make a decent engine, let alone a bug-free scripting system ;/

Release is supposed to be in March 2018.. but yeah, this one has a very small budget.

Still, good to see it continues, I absolutely LOVED The Guild, sadly it had a ton of major flaws. But there is no other game like it..., the original creator of The Guild is on board too.

Yea, F2P but what hooks are attached to this game? Gotta be something. Because nothing is ever really free.

No hooks, just free to put into library with nothing attached.

Tried it, hated it, so YMMV

Why is YouTube telling advertisers what they can and can not advertise on? Shouldn't it be up to the advertisers to decide what kind of videos they want their ads to appear on? What if an advertiser wants their ads on a gaming video with guns because their target audience is more likely to watch that type of video.

As advertiser you don't have such a selection power on youtube or it cuts down your impressions by 99% but the cost remains the same. That's the real problem I guess.

I always thought this advertisement thing on youtube videos to be exceptionally weird too. I never once had a matching ad (to my interests) it was always matching the video tags... and this can end up being some truly wild shit.

Yeah.. DLC maps. Guaranteed way to kill off a game. I suppose they will announce the next BF installment soon and everyone will lose their minds.

Pretty sure that map will be "free" in a month or so, but yeah, not helping the dwindling population that's for damn sure. I haven't started the game in a month now... just can't bring myself to do it... oh well. More space on my SSD I guess...

Does the general population have the other new maps now? I stopped 1-2 months ago also. Last I played it was just 10 star Hellriegels and shotguns running in a circle on Fort Vaux. It would be nice to have a more varied, non-meta, server population on the new maps.

Truly enjoy the game, but it was starting to feel like work (which is usually when I stop playing something)

Have to admit I honestly don't know... My enjoyment stopped being that pretty much for the same reason.

I guess it won't be available to anyone for free, since they call this an expansion... this was the 2nd BF game where I did not go for the "Premium" nonsense, learned the lesson from BF4 where I did not like 90% of the content in the expansions.... wouldn't have bought any of them if they hadn't been free eventually ;p

I like the past settings much more than the future ones so this is a good start. I hope it's not a more linear, story-driven game this time.

Random maps, story mode inside the endless mode like in 2205, but aside that, enemy AI on the same world, ship battles, diplomacy and trading

Game is not yet feature complete though, some things may end up out some may end up in.. we'll see I guess. Also far as I understand, that means no story driven mini-campaigns with specific goals, but (real) multi-stage long-term monuments are back

That at least, say the German Anno guys that played the alpha before GamesCom

Good! I just want a custom skirmish mode on a single map. If they want to build a plot around this, that can work out fine for me. I got the impression the future ones, 2070 and 2250, were more the other way around, the story-telling dictated everything else.

random map custom endless mode without story is definitely in ^^ But Anno 2205 did not really have a story just a really annoyingly gated progression... I actually REALLY liked the story campaign for Anno 2070 btw...

As I understand, they will take feedback into account this time... game is also still way over a year away.

If it really starts 1800 it will also start us outside of the industrial revolution I am guessing progression will be leading us through it, well, might be interesting, hope dies last ,)
