Interesting, I heard it was expensive to buy, story content locked behind the deluxe edition, basic game play, no cockpit view, no wheel support, cringe-worthy banter and of course loot boxes.

If EA listened to "the players" you'd still make big SP games and wouldn't have introduced loot boxes and mobile mechanics. No this is about appeasing shareholders.

At the end of the day actions speak louder than words though.

People wouldn't play f2p games if microtransactions mattered. But as the Dead Space -devs are going down we can see that the productions are too big and expensive without additional monetizing options.

Most AAA games will have microtransactions and/or advertising in the future.

Not quite. AAA publishers / shareholders want, and only care, about making lots of money yes? Therefore AAA games already make plenty of money, otherwise they wouldn't continue to make them would they? These corporations even go so far as to utilize shell companies in overseas tax havens.


In regards to Visceral there has been numerous sources of news entailing marketing been almost as high as actual production.


"Most AAA games will have microtransactions and/or advertising in the future." Well I don't recall advertising but MTs are sure here. And because a lot of consumers have defended them as been "only cosmetics" you can bet once apathy for them sets in a little further, publishers will push for their titles to be a combo of p2w MTs, full retail price, DLC, expansion pass, collectors edition etc.


Heck EA has indicated MP/MT games are their future, so forget about SP. Some early reports also suggest their latest Battlefront is P2W.

I feel the same way. But if Anthem fails we can expect BioWare to be shutdown also?


I hope other devs can step up to this huge SP RPG space, because I doubt EA is going to provide much here.

I fear you may be right about closure, so I hope Anthem will succeed, even though I probably won't be enjoying it...


I did love MEA though, if I can keep playing my SP Bioware games and ignore the MP part of them, even if they are open world, I can live with that!

I'm still using the Hyper X, great unit. Does the Cloud Alpha come in normal styles or only black with garish "gamer" red highlights? We really need more white in this area.Reply
Dave James Avatar

At the moment, I think there's only the red. I guess other styles will be coming eventually.

I like ksp.

We all like this game.

Actually before they changed the text we argued about that. You know , almost everyone thought she was just an retreated. But...

Well, we total understand that if game dev didn't change the text, they may get into a large trouble. But that can't be the reason our our loyal players should be abandoned. We have no choice but to do that.

NihlusGreen Avatar

What large trouble would the devs get into? Is English your native language, or are you using a translation program like, presumably, the KSP devs used?

Matt any comment as to needing a large grind or loot boxes to get the "true" ending of the Shadow Wars chapter? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPHp7xHt-MMReply

The article you're commenting on and the 12 minute video at the top of it are almost solidly comment on that.


From someone who has actually played the game, no less.

Nice save Dave!

So your choice for a wheel would be either the G29 or T300RS?Reply
Dave James Avatar

It's a tricky one. The T300RS has got the 1080° rotation (Logitech stops at 900°) and the slightly better force feedback, but it's a bit more expensive. The G29 (the Sony PS version over the Xbox G290) has more buttons, a nicer build quality and super stable pedals. Overall though I just give it to the Thrustmaster wheel, but only just.

No, it won't. It's targeting "devs" and russian bot farms, SidAlpha explains better than I can here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ALgmOdX2iQE and also takes a run through the scamming site which is home to assets for flipping, bot farms for trading cards and other nefarious shit.

Yeah, I'm not watching some random video. However, we've gotten more information now, so this is no longer an argument. They didn't change the system, supposedly. So all this was for nothing, and wasn't worth reporting on to begin with as the system wasn't changed.
