  • Destiny 2 Playerbase Has Dropped By Over 2 Million Users Since Launch

    For people who dont like "auto-scaling" maybe this is why they left:



    What's the point of grinding if there's never a power difference?

    I really like Fortnite, but I do agree that right now, PUBG is more fully-featured and well rounded. FNBR is playing catch up for now. But I doubt it'll take them long to get there.
    Yeah they definitely will catch up because PUBG keeps helping them. Just like popularity jumped dramatically when PUBG first called them out for copying. PUBG needs to be chill otherwise they'll just dig their own grave with this title.

  • Activision Granted Patent that Pairs Players to Increase Microtransaction Purchases - General News

    Use or license it out. One reviewer I once watched on YT said he was afraid that one day it would get to the point in which companies would charge gamers on a per-skill-use basis. "42000 melee coins if you want to try and take down that world boss." "Don't worry, on sale."
    You could argue that its already been a thing since a lot of f2p games sell dungeon charges/resets, which pretty much give you as many shots at a particular daily/weekly instance as you're willing to spend. But its spreading to almost every game though. I mean people do have to realize that some practices are fine in certain payment models for various reasons, but there is a line. Companies are just pushing and it feels like they are working together to do it. What makes this kind of funny is that this is news a week or so before Destiny 2 is going to be live on pc (which of course has micro-transactions)

    Maybe I had rose-tented glasses on when I think back to the old days of gaming, but I dont remember the scene being so money hungry 10+ years ago. I remember devs not just saying that they were gamers but actually would talk about their times in various games as well as top titles they played or co-op moments they had with people, etc. Now, with them pretty much just being blatant about how much they want us to give them more money, its honestly just pushing me to quit the entire scene together. Call me a fool but I'm honestly MORE inclined to give a company money when I dont feel like they are trying to pull out my wallet and open it for me every few minutes in their game especially if I've already gave them money upfront just to play it. We hardly get demos anymore and pre-order was shoved down people's throats in the past 5 years. Heck, even the Assassin's Creed: Origin's pre-order tells you up front you wont get access to a mission if you dont pre-order. That's straight up completed content that they are saying you wont get unless you give them money first. I dont know about anyone else, but if you can already say what extra you're going to release for the game before its even released, that should just be included. The only thing I can kind of let slide is if its something cosmetic. Lets not forget that SE is working on a SECOND season pass for FFXV supposedly, cause you gotta milk as much as you can I guess.

    Been a mmorpg gamer since 2003 and few real life friends as well we started at same time none of us care at all about housing. I don't understand how so many people care about housing in a mmorpg. Do you like playing with dolls too? I'm in for the combat part or I would play sims if not.


    Has to do with being engaged in the world and having a place in the world over just "appearing" after a login screen.

    Probably more for people who are more interested in the world aspect than just a "game".



    There's that and there's also the fact that certain mats are only exclusive to having a house as well since you can only garden if you have a house and FC's can do airship exploration missions which can bring in exclusive mats as well. So its a bit more than just cosmetic to some.
