What? I'm sorry but none of that made sense. The empty box "metaphor" is the season pass you buy today, not knowing what the hell it will include and how good it will probably be.

Today, you got BETTER information including actual gameplay videos then back in the day. And when you preordered you did NOT know what you would really receive. Maybe you got a few images, some description - that was all.

Back in the day, those magazines were fucking awesome and knew allot. Journalists even got invited to the studio to play preview builds and do interviews.

And today the journalists get criticized as embedded journalist or paid shills for doing so... And again, you are comparing apples and oranges here. For BIG games you got some previews with a few pics and some description - today, you get very often gameplay videos, invites to alphas/betas, and so on. I like today better!

Quinn wrote on Apr 19, 2016, 11:05:
Also, back in the day an EXPANSION PACK was almost as long as the main game. Think Neverwinter Nights 2: Mask of the Betrayer, one of the last Expansions before they got as good as extinct.

Oh, wow, so Enemy Within was tiny? Dying Light: The Following is like horse armor? And some of the Fallout 3/New Vegas expansions were also pretty big. You see? It is not black and white: DLC tiny and expensive, but expansions 10+ years ago were the AWESOME.

But I remember reading discussions like this one pretty often here, shaking my head because some people... Ah, don't get me started. I'm out of here. Enjoy!

Aaaaaannnnddd yet another fucking lame retarded season pass scam. Fuck you 2K.

$4.99 Steam sale for the GOTY (maybe... only if it gets glowing reviews). I can wait.

Aaaaand I remember buying the expansions for TIE Fighter. For real money, you know. Must have been before you were born.

Oh yeah? And they tried to sell us (I bet I'm older than you buddy) an empty box for those expansions in advance and did not tell us what the expansion content would even be like?
News to me. The way I remember it is we got the announcement of the expansion after the main game was released and when they announced it, we knew pretty much exactly what we were going to get if we (pre)ordered. We also never had to buy that empty box.

Your point?

Oh yeah? You don't remember preordering games and expansions? Well, I do. And no, we did not know what it would be like - there was no interwebz back then, only printed game magazines who did not know too much, either.

And when it arrived, the box was not empty. And the DLC you download is not only zeroes, you know?

So, YOUR point (except for trolling)?

Downloaded the 25 gig install.

Tried to go to Port Olisar, disconnected with kick error 11.

Tried to play the Arena Commander, disconnected with kick error 22.

Uninstalled.

So I guess you will only invest about $300 instead of 500?

Is this the killer app for Oculus and Vive?

Interesting how quickly the hype has died down after the release...

RE: FF IX
My nephew followed the FF games almost religiously. I never understood the fascination, but then again I am not into manga and emo stuff.

Why does the world care about who the leader of the most powerful/influential country in the world is? Is that your question?

And articles on American politics tell them what exactly about China and its leader? Huh Grin

Different culture in "old europe". They are more interested in what is going on all over the world than most of the US citizens. No, that was in no way meant as an offense!

I hate it how they state that violent video games influence gamers. If they don't stop this, I will climb on a high building and will start throwing barrels at them.

And yet, oddly, King was the one that broke the news, as he was excited about the casting, and then said "To me, the color of the gunslinger doesn't matter. What I care about is how fast he can draw...and that he takes care of the ka-tet," I'm going to go with him over you.

The same King who did not like Kubrick's version of the Shining and therefore worked on a pretty horrible "own" tv mini series adapation? The same King who directed Maximum Overdrive? I'm going to go with Stanley Kubrick, Frank Darabont, and Tobe Hooper over you and King, when it comes to movie adaptions.

IIRC, it did not happen in middle school, but on Hoth. Maybe you have seen another reedit by Lucas? Tongue

Pretty sure in both cases (ANH and Empire) she kissed him?

Yes, she did. And it was neither middle school, nor did he look disgusted. Instead he was jealous when Han said that maybe a pirate like him and a princess like her...

Yes, I did. I also hated the Gods of Egypt (horrible movie, by the way) being played by e.g. Coster-Waldau (Denmark) and Bryan Brown (Australia). It looked and felt so weird... Next we'll see a Shaka Zulu bio pic starring Paul Bettany as the Zulu chief. Or worse, Melissa McCarthy... Wall2

Offtopic: Idris Elba has the potential to be a GREAT Roland. Roland's never been done before anyway in live action, right? So what's the issue? The general impression from the books is a man so weathered and leathery it hardly matters what race he is. If your impression of Roland is from the comics, well, for shame.

What? King describes him as someone who looks like Eastwood, and do you remember the racial tensions between Odetta and him? It seems it is you who should read the books!

So, these are new characters they introduced? Then I don't see the problem. New characters can be gay, transgender, hetero - I don't care. What I really, REALLY hate, though, is if they change wellknown characters. Idris Elba is play Roland in the The Dark Tower adaption that is in preproduction right now. IDRIS ELBA IS ROLAND?! WTF?! Then there were rumors about Luke Skywalker being gay?! WHAT?! The guy who kissed a girl (his sister which he did not know back then - wicked George Lucas!) and enjoyed it a lot and obviously was very interested in her until he found out about her being his sister could be turned into a gay character now. For f***'s sake, introduce NEW characters that are gay and I'm alright with it, but this retconning is a pestilence. They don't honor the original material in Hollywood anymore because of what they think is politically correct and shoehorn their ideas into wellknown stories and characters. WRITE SOMETHING NEW AND ORIGINAL, and then you got every right to include a love affair between e.g. Poe Dameron and Finn, or Rey and Maz Kanata. But don't turn Gandalf into a former lover of Saruman, please. Thank you. Nerd rage set to [OFF].

Information is the new dope, the cocaine, the gold of this age. Either you get something for free and get spied on (Win10, Android OS, Apple OS, "free" and paid apps), or you pay hundreds of $$$ and get spied on (e.g. Spy Goggles). In the end - you get spied on.
