I want to support Respawn, who are too good for EA and it's not fair that it's EA they got stuck with.

Hey.
I came here from b.net after a few Floods invited me. None of them post on either b.net nor here anymore, which is sad. I was still active on b.net until for some bizarre reason, b.net admins locked out people who have not played Destiny. Even if you wanted to post on the offtopic section. After that, I fully moved here and have not returned to b.net since.
Please come play Halo with me.

I bet it will still sell like  sliced bread.

Ppl shit on cod (for good reason), but it still ends up being the best selling game every year for over a decade now without fail.
The silent majority will always overshadow the loud minority.

It's not even just the silent majority. These reddits are filled with people complaining about microtransactions, but most of them have bought the game anyways. Same with Shadow of War and just about any other game that does this. The fans hate on the payment stuff but, as they are fans after all, still just end up buying the game just the same.

The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.
Now if only these 300k people didnt buy the game in the first place

Guys, the moral struggle of buying a cod game every year for my little brother's BD.
His BD is in the middle of November. Guess what else happens around November every year without fail? A cod release. He only plays it for Zombies too. god I wish they just released s stand-alone Zombies mode for like 15$/€. But this is Activision, the one who held COD4 as a hostage inside of Halo 4.5 until a year later.
Fuck activision. I know what they do to the employees, they trickle down some trinkets to keep you 'happy' while dabbing their greasy cocks in so much cash that even your mom's shadow has to compete for space. And if cod-wuwu isn't the best selling game of this year, I will donate 400 Euro to SecondClass.

The games themselves are usually quite good. The problem comes from EA putting it's fingers into the pie and mucking around in it.

Which is pretty annoying in this case because all anyone is going to talk about is loot boxes when dice and criterion have made the game part of the game pretty dang good.

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

Problem with CoD is that (until this year's iteration) it was repetitive and dull, but not overty cash grabby compared to the market it was sold in. People are okay with cosmetic microtransactions for the most part, but EA making this game p2p2w is intolerable. CoD is Hep-C, EA's money making schemes are cancer and legitimately killing the industry.

TBH it probably won't do much (if anything ) to the final sales. I remember when advanced warfare became the most downvoted YouTube video in history and it still went on to sell millions.

People love to bandwagon.

If I'm not here, I'm doing Photography. Or I'm asleep. Or hungover. One of those three, anyway.

The current titlebar/avatar setup is courtesy of Father Dougal McGuire, from Craggy Island's Father Ted.
Just about to hit the -400k mark, and still receive some of the largest profits of this year, if not every year before. At this point it's just people getting in on the action because lelreddit - following the thread after that is people riding it for karma.

As previous microtransaction and "pay to play and pay again" games have pointed out, it's irrelevant what the majority of gamers think of it when any extra purchase is extra generated profit. Even if most never touch them , whales spent hundreds and even thousands of pounds on top of the game for currency/points and milk profits that otherwise wouldn't exist. Perfect example is GTA: Online's Shark cards that keep being mentioned and have generated an extra $700 million in profit. The sale of the game itself across all platforms was approx. $1 Billion, so they've already doubled it.

So long as there's an idiot with more money than sense, it's profitable, and will continue to happen.

Hey look, the next inevitable karma whore and hypocrite: https://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/7cog1u/can_we_please_boycott_star_wars_battlefront_2/

It's actually depressing


People won't care and will buy this shit no matter what

I mean, I'm not buying Battlefront or any EA game so I don't really get affected at the moment, but what if it begins to get even more successful and spread to games I actually want?

EA was already playing crash and burn with the gamble-boxes, but this is just pissing on the ashes, man.
