  • Crytek Filing Lawsuit Against CIG

    That's prefectly fair though. If CIG aren't willing to abide by the terms of the contract that's entirely on them regardless of how silly it might seem. All they've done is show that they are willing to flaunt the license they were granted, it's all the little things that add up in a courtroom.
    Is it not fair to show the engine editor? It's like claiming they are leaking code, that would never happen within a reasonable way of seeing it as a breach of contract, it's far from contextual. If that was ever the case... yeah; but a good lawyer in US can make anything happen so gg

  • SC makes PC Gamers worst micro transactions list

    Seems they just have put SC cause it's popular, not because it even compares to funding methods that fall on microtransactions such as SOTA's or even CoE. To talk about buying land and ignore the existence of Entropia Universe is just wtf.

    The argumentation of "selling stuff before it even exists" for SC (in the funding kickstart nature of it) yet give a free pass to season passes? hmmm

    Maybe perhaps, CR will start selling his blood, then we can talk. :)

  • Star Citizen starts selling land today. Nov. 28 2017

    I'm going to have to rethink EA loot boxes.  Everything in the loot boxes can be earned in the game.  No one 'has' to buy loot boxes so it's all good.  :smile:
    Nope, it's still cashing out on gambling. One thing is putting money and just buying the thing via microtransactions,  another is putting money to get the chance to get that thing.

    idk where all this hate and entitlement comes from, like this sort of stuff is not the standard revenue model of MMOs since forever... And even so, many do not let you earn what you can buy.

  • Star Citizen: Animals

    You really don't see a problem with having raised $150 million plus and still asking for more, do you?
    Not if you understand this crowdfunded project is a large-scale development that costs at least 40million a year to sustain.

    It's not a publisher here who is sustaining the costs so it falls upon the ongoing crowdfund.

  • Hawaiian Legislators Call EA Loot Boxes a 'Predatory Practice' - Star Wars: Battlefront II - MMORPG.

    @TaishiFox games like battlefront has a large pop in kids, it's a mainstream game so duh. Even CS GO has a lot of kids, also a heaven of loot boxes.

    Thinking about it, it was Valve who popularized this in PC games before Blizzard or EA went on it, of course this was already ongoing for years within mobile games. Regulating this will fall upon everyone ofc, it just took a mainstream AAA game to create the necessary attention.

    "...kind of too late to just wave a finger at one of em just because they dared to take a step further!"

    Nope... if nothing is done now companies will continue to see how far they can push the envelope, it always been like that wouldn't change now.
