I am not willing to forgive them putting the game out as pay-to-win with gambling boxes then only walking it back once the money started to dry up. It's a no sale for me at any price.

Barebones or unfinished features, a sticker price and over-the-top microtransaction bollocks according to some of the reviews. Smells like a cash grab to me. I expect it to be dead in a few months.

Are they still using the same copy-pasta assets and engine? I haven't bought a CoD rehash in years.

I didn't think any people still played this game.

It sux...

That was my impression and by the awful user reviews and by the fact that the player counts cratered hard shortly after launch. And didn't the dude that won their big tournament last year win by exploiting? LOL.

News Comments > Star Wars Battlefront II Loot Crates Returning
18. Re: Star Wars Battlefront II Loot Crates Returning Jan 31, 2018, 17:30 thecakeisalie
 
They said microtransactions and loot crates would be back and here they are.

The people who bought this game without caring about the predatory pay-to-win before the backlash yanked it out or who just didn't GAF because it's "Star Wars" are fuckwits who are helping to turn gaming into a gold mine for Wall Street at our expense.

The people who bought it thinking that EA "learned their lesson" from the initial backlash from some consumers are idiots and are even bigger idiots if they keep playing and spend even a penny on "recurring revenue" items. You, too, are contributing to the delinquency of the video game industry since you helped make the game profitable when it really needed to fail. Badly.

I tip my virtual hat to the people who stood by their convictions and didn't buy this steaming pile. As much as I like Star Wars, I couldn't condone the fuckery that EA tried to pull initially with this game and is going to pull in some form or another soon.

News Comments > Ghost Recon Wildlands Loot Crate Plans
15. Re: Ghost Recon Wildlands Loot Crate Plans Jan 24, 2018, 17:44 thecakeisalie
 
Makes me glad I never bought this game. The usual excuse for "loot crates" has been "it's expensive to develop a game!". They are pretty revolting in games that don't charge for extra content, like Overwatch, but this game charges you for everything AND now they're throwing in gambling boxes just to make some extra change. It's just the usual greedy fuckery we should pretty much come to expect from all "AAA" publishers now.

Fuck loot crates. Fuck PUBG. Games are becoming vectors for pseudo gambling and software as a service and their makers are taking advantage of behavioral economics based psychological manipulation of their audience.

Yup. Worst part is that Valve/Steam facilitates the "trading" of this stuff, gets a cut and turns a blind eye while kids gamble on 3rd party sites sometimes losing skins that some nutters will pay hundreds for. We desperately need regulation on ALL gambling boxes.

PS - Valve is becoming almost as bad as EA/Activision these days. The flood of mobile pay-to-win PC ports onto Steam is insane. These "games" and asset flips are invading the PC marketplace drowning out all of the actually legitimate games that try to make a go on Steam. Valve is all to happy to take their money and peddle this shite to PC gamers. Gabe Newell needs to be called out for his greed. He's been given a pass by PC gamers for too long.

I don't regret refunding my pledge for one second. There's a reason why video games are no longer really successful on Kickstarter anymore and this is one of the big ones. IF Crytek don't sue them into oblivion, this game will still never be a fraction of what was promised due to mismanagement of time, resources and money.

$725 DLC - but guys, guys, this is not pay to win.

If there is never going to be a game for you to use it in, is it actually pay to win?

My friends have been poking me to get this but after getting burned by Ubisoft on a few of their recent games (e.g. The Division) I was reluctant. I might check it out.

Gameplay more like like Call of Duty than Battlefront (original). Lots of pew pew pew pew pew. Little depth. Horrific pay-to-win microtransaction gambling boxes as bad as you see in the more shifty Free-to-Play games. No thanks. It'll be as dead as the first one within a few months.

Loot boxes and locking the true ending behind a grindwall that you can ease with real cash money make this a "no buy" for me. To those of you who can plug their nose and endorse this shameless cash grab, it's a free market. Do what you want. However, don't complain when these companies just keep getting greedier and greedier at your expense. Because that's what companies do when you let them get away with it.

The microtransactions and getting fucked over in the first game make this a "no buy GI" game for me.

If y'all want to support this lootbox microtransaction scam then please do it all-out and preorder the gold version for $99.99 on Steam directly. I mean why hold back? Just do it! You know you want to.

This is pretty much why I'm not buying it. The regular game will no doubt be designed as such a grindfest as to "encourage" you to buy the microtransaction pay-to-win loot boxes (like Dead Space 3 was or maybe even worse). If you want to do their online ranked mode, you'll need to buy them to have any chance, just like people spend thousands on mobile games to "win" at any cost.

News Comments > Destiny 2 Open Beta
33. Re: Destiny 2 Open Beta Aug 29, 2017, 20:51 thecakeisalie
 
I've played Destiny, Destiny 1.5..errr 2 and Warframe and Warframe is superior to both version of Destiny. Plus it's free*.

* - It's recommended that you buy a little platinum to open up slots and stuff for more weapons and Warframes but the cash investment to get rolling in Warframe is a lot less than getting into Destiny 2 (considering extremely pricey DLCs and expansions that will gimp you if you don't get them are a certainty as per the original Destiny).

I asked for a refund. I've finally had enough. To you people still holding out hope that this project will ever resemble anything remotely promised by Chris Roberts, good luck.

Warframe does it better and it's free. You could buy enough in-game currency to get pretty much anything you want for the same price of Destiny 2 and all the inevitably overpriced DLCs (if they follow the same pattern as Destiny).

The pure irony of the "pros" in the For Honor tournament using completely dishonorable exploits to win and Ubi$oft giving them the prizes anyways. They should have been disqualified. Ubi$oft are their own worst enemy.
