The monetization of things we don't want.
Don't like toxic gamers, there's a fee for that.
Don't like robocalls, the phone company gots you covered if you pay more.

Even worse it is a fee for a service which doesn't provide the service. It simply notifies the devs of your preference. Great, thanks a ton for that.

Well there's a real simple solution to that. Stop playing it and go play something else. As always, vote with your wallet.

Removing 30fps cap on PC for MK11??? Whaaaaat? That's awesome. Supposedly it was done to give the correct look for the fatalities. I think it's stupid, as are the menus with their sluggish feel.

Going to be awesome running at full 60fps. Sucks to be console gamers often, lol.

Just the main story you're looking at ~10 hours. A completionist has ~25 hours of playtime.

From the article:

Up to 50 per cent of UK console sales are now accounted for by digital, per research by GamesIndustry.biz - so, applying this generously to Rage 2, sales are only down on Rage 1 by half.

They're talking about UK only, and first week sales only. Body of the article admits the sequel launched on a Friday and the first game on a Tuesday... but there's no room for such detail in a clickbai headline.

You are being far too kind. You are paying to let them know you want to avoid a toxic gamer. Doing so does not accomplish the desired effect.

And there are no guarantees. I'd like to see a 3 tiered pricing scheme.
For $9.95 a month you get 30% less chance of playing with someone on your blocked list. 52% for $12.95 and only $15.95 for an 82% chance of avoiding that off-brand oleaginous buttplug.

You obviously only read the headline. The article also has Steam player stats. Those numbers are abysmal for a new release.
If you check the Steam top games stats right now then Rage 2 has barely made it into the top 100 today at 87th place with a peak number of players at around 4.5K. That's beyond pathetic for a new AAA release.

Those numbers make me very happy though. Maybe this way Bethesda will learn that people aren't willing to put up with piecemeal games anymore (yeah, yeah, I know it is more likely they will attribute the sales failure to the absence of multiplayer). The price should also come crashing down much sooner since they will be forced to salvage whatever is left in this wreck.

Doesn't matter to me. I won't buy their half-assed, unfinished piecemeal piece of shit before there is a GOTY. Fuck them. Super glad this garbage tanked hard.

No no no no no. It's Valve! $4.99 buys you a LOOTBOX with a CHANCE to draw a token to avoid a toxic player ONCE. Then you get to buy another lootbox!

I just listend to a scathing podcast review that essentially called Rage 2 a burger you bought and you bite a piece off... and then you notice it's only bland bread.

I don't get it really. You have a great combat system great physics (to some extend) and you implement one of the most boring openworlds EVER .. why?

You don't have any destruction, no BF5 kind of map destruction, no terrain deformations, no fucking weather patterns, no wildlife no dynamic bases spreading... it's a boring 1997 shooter.

Because Avalanche has no fucking clue how to make a fun open world. They're known as an "open world" studio, and yet they release boring failure after boring failure.

Maybe it's time to shift to point and click adventures or something, Avalanche. You clearly SUCK at the open world stuff.
