Re: Odyssey 2 Box Art Special

Wonderful page, although describing your own commentary as "witty" is a bit presumptuous. I also have to take issue with the Conquest of the World description – it doesn't have "several futuristic vehicles including a tank, ship, and jet"; it has a tank, a ship, and a jet, period...

Re: You Have to Go Online

I mean, if you want to complaint for another fifteen years about how the internet is changing gaming, go for it. Or just opt out. It’s not perfect but I’m fine with the industry now, and I’m sure it’ll be fine in twenty years. I'm not fine with most industries related to tech and entertainment (or ...

Re: You Have to Go Online

Clearly there are downsides. The idea of ownership is changing. No. It is being changed , deliberately and systematically. the industry keeps moving forward. Why not save the complaints to help shape the industry as it moves forward, This is hilariously loaded language. The consolidation of power i...

Re: You Have to Go Online

You don't think there's nuance to be had? Star Wars Battlefront 2 dropped lootboxes due to people being angry. Diablo 3 got rid of the auction house. To reference the other thread, No Man's Sky has been significantly improved upon for years now when they could've just left it. If people really want...

Re: You Have to Go Online

I'm all for being against bad business practices like releasing unfinished games, crappy DLC and the like, but I don't think having the ability to have the game patched at a later date is bad business. The problem is that the latter is used to legitimize the former. Give corporations an inch, and t...

Re: To forgive or not to forgive?

You're right. Nobody's ever bitten off more than they could chew.

You're trying to present these people as grifters, but grifters wouldn't in a million years put in the continuous work that this team has to make their game worth playing. They didn't take the money and run.

Re: To forgive or not to forgive?

Personally, I'm not comfortable with the idea of buying something from a company that outright lies to its consumers. With so many game companies trying to find ways to take advantage of us with things like loot boxes and micropayments, what message do you think they'll take away when we show them ...
