And i'm as guilty as the rest of my fellow gamers who still get excited about games, but this growing trend just makes me sad inside.

Lol.

You said that DLC is a "growing trend".

Valve's brain-drain continues while they're focused on releasing a 20+ year old game in China. Good lookin' out Gabe!

I would LOOOOOOOOOOVE to hear WaltC chime in on this.

He fits perfectly into this Venn diagram shit sandwich:

1) He uses the internet

2) He votes for Trump

I keep thinking Activision is going to have to up their game with the COD franchise and yet they don't really and they still sell it like they were selling water in the Sahara. All these other shooters out there, from Destiny to Overwatch to whatever and COD still sells with minimal changes compared to the sometimes very drastic changes that a series like Battlefield makes from year to year.

I mean, if it sells I guess Activision is smart for doing it this way. I just don't get it from a consumer point of view. I mean, even the zombies are derivative.

Well, I'd agree with you that DICE put far more effort into upgrading and improving and re-designing and re-finagling their ENGINE than the CoD series, but the core gameplay is largely the same since 1942.

That is with the exceptions of the most creative, inventive and "outside of the box" titles like Hardline, and 2142. Which ironically was harshly criticized by throngs of angry gamers that these additions to the series were "just mods", and claimed it was the "same thing", even though no one seemed to mind when BF3 and BF4 were essentially the same game. Which is hilarious and ironic and super weird.

Anyways, fuck CoD. They have no reason to not have the best engine/platform for FPS games by now. They infact have quite the opposite.

..... oh I just woke up. Is it the same tripe? probably... back to sleep... zzzzz

For the most popular FPS franchise of all time (at least as far as sales are concerned... i think) they certainly seem keen to keep the bar as low as possible.

Still based on a mutilated fork from the Quake 3 engine? probably.

How many billions has this franchise made? Think they could throw a few mil on some engine builders? NAHHHHHHHHHHH

"There is a situation where players look at numbers on Steam; that doesn't happen on PlayStation 4. I don't have the numbers in front of me, but you look at PC, [concurrent user] health versus PS4, PS4 is doing fine," he said. "People cough up 30 bucks and hop online and they don't overthink it. On PC there is you wanting to declare something a success or a bomb by this internet culture that loves to just observe things."

Say what you want about his prickly demeanour, this guy is one of the only ones in the industry who isn't afraid to call shit like it is. Nobody looks at player counts on consoles. Meanwhile, us PC players just sit here and snipe at the OBVIOUS FAILURE of this game from afar, without most of us having even played it. This is indeed a failure, but really it's a failure of PC gamers.

I'm becoming more and more confident in my Xbox One X pre-order decision every day.

There are a ton of reasons why this game fails on PC.

1. Too much competition in the FPS realm right now with PUBG, the ever-present CS:GO, TF2, R6, etc.

This is a bullshit argument (most of the rest of your arguments are bullshit too).Every year in gaming is the year with the "most FPS players ever". There is room for more than 4-5 games. I don't remember only 4 Drama movies being released last year because of the "over saturation of the Drama genre in movies". I don't remember only 5 Political Humour books being published in the last year cause everyone only reads one of 5 books.

Only gamers (particularly PC gamers) have this tribal herd mentality. That's why Overwatch has a billion players, and LB has zero. One game isn't fundamentally better than the other, they're 2 different arena games.

I wonder how much of that is people playing thinking they're going to be an e-sports champion with a Bliz game, or somehow make a career as a youtube/twitch streamer. I miss when people just played games for fun. And you can't tell me that from an objective perspective OW is a billion times more fun than LB.

Ech, if you're willing to spend 45K on vaporware, you should be willing to lose 45K on vaporware. Sure, I guess they didn't know the extent of the delays and/or lies when they signed up, and I am happy they got their money back...

I just kinda hoped that they got stiffed and were out the 45K, because then this would be a cautionary tale of spending way too much money on a fucking kickstarter, which should be the only real lesson anyone can take from this hot mess.

Sheesh, don't you people ever get sick of the cliche negativity about almost everything?

Blue's comment section has been a cesspit for some time. I tried for a period to call people out on always being so negative, and it just falls on deaf ears. There are quite a few good posters but the loud always-negatives drown out anything worthwhile.

CJ_Parker, Cutter are the biggest offenders by a long shot.

While they're the worst of the bunch, they're by no means outliers of a larger trend, as you state. The problem comes when people pile onto whatever "everyone's mad at" and it cascades to over 50% of posters on here.

All that it would take to combat it is a simple reply to one of the "good" posters with a "thumbs up" of sorts, to show that they're not alone.

It's easy to pile on to a bitching match, it takes balls to stand with someone obviously alone as a source of sanity.

Cool beans, thanks for the tip blue. I just ordered 2 (free) tickets for the general expo floor. Considering it's about 5 blocks from where I live, it's hard to pass up. On a similar note, there's a DreamHack Montreal tourney going on this weekend about 3 blocks in the other direction, MTL <3 Gaming.

That's usually my line, but come on, you have to be able to call a spade a spade. It's widely considered "good form" to launch a new game and give it time to breathe, to let the customers who just plonked down (in my case) $80 CAD to feel like they're getting their money's worth.

Announcing the first xpack 3 days after launch is bad form. It's not a death sentence, and there are worse and more insidious practises in the industry... but I think we can come together and at the very least admit to ourselves that this is in poor taste.

This is Activision at its greatest, the game has been out for what, 3 days on console? Still 6 weeks away to even come out on PC, and they're already talking expansions.

Don't get me wrong, I like expansion packs, or as the kids call em "DLC", if I'm actually enjoying a game and want more content, but this is absurd. You don't do it 3 days after launch. The contempt they have for their customers is so thick you could spread it on toast.

Towlie bonus content! Lol! So awesome! Actually can't wait for this season of SP. My understanding is they're dumping the overarching stories and politics and just getting back to the old random silly episodes. About time too. The first several seasons were the best. I love stuff like the guys from Korn arguing if they're 'pirate ghosts' or 'ghost pirates'.

Supposedly Trey Parker is the silly one, and Matt Stone is the one that pushes the social commentary. I like both, but I do agree that it's gotten a bit social lately... still great premises derived from current headlines, no other show can do that within 1 week.

They had what, a 25-year lead on this? And a virtual monopoly for much of that time? UNNACCEPTABRUUUU

Also, fuck MTG, the mana system makes the game not very fun to play. If you draw a hand with no lands, or all lands, then you pretty much lose and you waste 2 people's time. The way post other post-MTG CCGs manage the mana pool is a lot better.

Personally, I liked the system in Scrolls, where every turn you could choose to sac a card to get +1 "mana crystals", or sac a card and draw 2 new cards. It meant you were never stuck with a shitty hand for too long, or stuck without mana.
