Life is Strange 2 (PS4) makes me mad

Postby VideoGameCritic » October 21st, 2020, 5:21 pm

So I was listening to the soundtrack to the original Life is Strange the other day, and it really made me want to revisit the series. The gameplay was never spectacular but I loved the Autumn/school atmosphere. Took me back to my college days.

So I did a quick Wikipedia search to learn Life is Strange 2 is out - and available on physical media! So I checked it out on Amazon.

https://www.amazon.com/Life-Strange-2-P ... r=8-1&th=1

Well, if you read some comments you will learn that while the disc contains the first four episodes, you'll need to DOWNLOAD the final episode via a CODE! Apparently this was an effort to discourage people from buying used copies?! WTF??

Well all it's going to do in my case is discourage me from buying it NEW. I mean, how insulting is this? The whole reason to buy it on physical is to have a permanent copy! I'm really disgusted.

Wow, piracy is certainly understood, but prohibiting “used” copies seems awful. Sometimes I wonder if the market is too flooded/saturated, resulting in cheesy tactics like this to earn a buck.

It is an abhorrent practice. But sad to say with the game companies wanting to make so much cash, this tactic does not surprise me at all. Just more reason to retro game.
