    Yeah, but some of us do remember that there has been an overarching story behind most of it, which is what most games do. Is that what you want from Hitman, an episodic assasin simulator where you randomly kill targets?

    2.99 and you get one mission! pay 5.99 and you get 3! for 19,99 you get all of them! Eh ...

    And I bet the same could be said for Call Of Duty too.

    More to the "Just buy it at the end" argument. Wasn't it stablished that people who buy the game right now are actually missing out on the full package of the game because of timed events they basically use to punish anyone who isn't an early adopter?

    And Squeenix is even gonna make FF7 episodic, let's see how bad an "Episodic" RPG fucks it up.

    While many make fun of it and lambast it nowadays as a series going backwards on itself.

    Oh yeah, I recall this Hitman has some contracts that are locked away permanently because they happen to be timed exclusives. Pretty shitty move if you ask me.

    Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I am getting really sick and fucking tired of locked away content.

    So fucking many games nowadays can't even be purchased entirely with all the money in the world.

    War Thunder, countless planes and tanks are locked away, no one can get them anymore.

    Sunless Sea has shit you can't get unless you backed the game and shit.

    Etc.

    Pisses me off.

    I bought THE GAME, not THE GAME minus 1

    One of the reasons why I stoped to care about World of Tanks a long time ago.

    What pisses me off is its getting more and more common.

    The data EXISTS on the disk, or on the HDD, but you can't use it 'because lulz'.

    This is why piracy ironically gets you a BETTER GAME half the time.

    Well, no doubt it there are a lot of rather shady buisness tactics in gaming these days. However not a reason for me to pirate games. Thankfully I have enough self controll to keep away from that. Games with shitty practises don't deserve any support. Not saying you do! I mean just in general. Still, what I find interesting is this :

    I beg to differ.

    If someone treats you like a bitch, fuck them right in the asshole where it hurts.

    Pirate all their garbage and see how good they are.

    If they're good, don't buy them, you're funding terrible companies.

    If they're bad, don't buy them, you're funding terrible companies.

    Gotta vote with your wallet.

    And there's no point funding a company known for making absolute trash all the time, and the occasional golden poop.

    Yes, but that also means supporting things where they do something right. Speak with your wallet. Remember.

    An issue.

    Game companies don't want to make good games.

    They sometimes do, but that's random, and only a handful of devs try to do it.

    Give EA 100 bucks for supermegaultragameoftheyearaddition+10DLC good game, and they'll use that to fund 'pieceofshit3'.

    Remember Gearbox?

    The 'lets take all the money we got for funding the IP game we need to make, to fund our own shitty games" gearbox?

    Now they fucking own Homeworld.

    HOMEWORLD.

    THE FUCKING RTS WHICH TO THIS DAY IS STILL BARELY OUTCOMPETED IN COMPLEXITY IN GAMEPLAY.

    Huh, calm down man/girl/what ever.

    I am just saying, you need a 'radar' where you can decide for your self if a game is worth your money or not. No one's saying buy every shitty DLC there is on earth. And yes, as much as I hate EA, but sometimes they do make decent games. Buy them. Support them. At some point, they might realize what is good and what isn't. And if you really really really really don't want to support them, wait till the games can be get for 6.99$ in a steam sale or what ever. Might take a couple of years, but hey, you don't have to play EVERYTHING that is under the sun right after release anyway.

    Making intelligent decisions as consumer, not asking for a boycott that no one will do anyway.

    Nope.

    If a dev/publisher releases a single piece of shit, they go onto my shitlist, and I block them financially forever.

    I'm a consumer, not a fucking cumdumpster to leech money off of.

    Let me say it again.

    Homeworld.

    Revolutionary 3d RTS which to this day is fucking amazing gameplay and storywise...

    Is now in the hands of a financially sucessful company which releases the same shit over and over, and intentionally lies to its customers with every new IP.

    Zeno is an entity that cannot be classified by modern science. Also do not invite Zeno into your home.

    EVER.

    Which usually holds as long as they relase this one product that you MUST have ...

    Naw in all seriosness though, I understand you I was once like you. But I don't know if it's the age, depressions or that I just stoped to give a fuck, I am now kinda ... whiser? I guess. No clue.

    See, EA isn't making profit by selling licensed water to poor africans, exploting war zones for rare minerals or polluting the sea with drilling for oil.
    They are just a really large publisher for games and not ISIS and I think, if you want to hold a grudge against a really large corporation like as it would be a person, do it. That's ok. As said, I was like that. But in the mean time I would personaly have no problem to buy Wolfenstein, if it's really good while hating on Bethesda for Fallout 4.

    In all seriousness Zeno, don't let the bad games stop you from taking a look at the decent/good stuff.
