I'm confused, what connection does this guy have to CIG and in what way is he doing it "for donations"?kikoodutroa8 said:Yeah seems that French dude is doing a great job of telling backers soothing words about the lawsuit for donations.
Totally not a cult lol
It does because he was in charge of the project, he was employed by the owner to be in charge of the project, to make decisions and direct it. If this wasn't the case, then there would be no point having a director on the project at allKefo said:Did CR own Origin systems when strike commander was made? If not then it doesn't really have relevance to the discussion since CR still had someone above him with oversight to keep him in line unlike now and in his previous studio.Erillion said:Nope, we are talking about a claim. "Chris Roberts never finished a game when he was in charge". That claim has been proven to be false. Unless you have new evidence about the "Strike Commander" team composition and structure. Let's hear it.
Think that's the overall point Jim makes. The other point he makes as well is that people say "its just cosmetic" or some say "I don't care", but If we to put these people in a situation where you have 0 customization over your characters, your unable to switch genders or you have fixed Armour through out the entire game regardless of what you got equipped, people will kick up a fuss.Gorwe said:Cosmetics are content for some. Just because you don't care about, doesn't mean it's irrelevant. Don't be so smallminded.
The video is more directed at B2P games, like BF2 or Destiny. Games you've already dropped 60 - 100 on already. Jim hasn't talked much about mmos and tends to me more lenient when it comes to F2PYou can't really blame the developers when customers complain about a 15$/month subscription but jubilate about a "free" game where they then spend hundreds of $ for micro transactions.
Unfortunately everyone (even those who don't belong to the "I want everything for free" faction) is affected because micro transactions and cash shops of course do change gameplay. But yeah, it is what it is and it will only become worse from here.
