I agree. Do you think that someone selling their max level kitted out toon on EBAY is just as destructive? I do, and that was my point. There are people in this thread, who I won't call out by name because I don't feel like waiting out a temp ban, that are bragging about selling their toons in other games who trashed BF2 for it's loot boxes. Those are the hypocritical idiots I'm talking about.MadFrenchie said:Cosmetics and usable is a substantial difference. Something that affects a player's effectiveness (i.e. better turn rate for starfighters in BF2) is much more destructive to a competitive environment than a shweet skin.I completely disagree. You are either ok with people spending money to get things in game, be they cosmetic or usable, or you are not. Saying its ok to sell your max level toon on ebay but that EA having loot boxes is an affront to gaming is an idiotic position. (I'm not saying that that applies to you, just in general)Cryomatrix said:I love seeing some people in this thread gleefully brag about buying and selling things in game for real money and against TOS who trash microtransactions in newer games. Pathetic...
They're not the same thing at all . .
When a game has microtransaction in it and they make the game in a way that pushes you towards those microtransactions that is an issue. They do this by P2W mechanics or whatever.
I have no problems with microtransactions in general, my main game, Path of Exile, has cosmetic microtransactions. I purchase them when I feel like it.
When players sell stuff to other players, it is a different setup, a different feel. Yes, $ is transferred for pixels, but to me it is an even barter system. The microtransaction bullshit in certain games is just bullshit.
I don't actually trash microtransactions that much, I get it, I just don't play games that push players towards it. Overall, RexKushman, you need to see the difference between a company putting out microtransactions (some are legit and others are lame) and people just selling stuff to each other.
I'll consider that your apology, have a good onethen you are not part of a conversation group I care to discuss with...move along,LMAO, try finding me complaining about EA games. I enjoy them quite a bit actually.then dont complain about EA gamesI watched a video of 7d2d once, it looked like minecraft with different skins.Battlefront looks to me EXACTLY like Battlefield 1942 with different skins.nariusseldon said:Sorry but no, they both look like glorified shooters.
Well Anthem looks very interesting to me...Actually more interesting than Destiny...Ive played both Destiny 1 and 2 but I just think the Gameplay for Anthem looks a lot better...But since the lootbox fiasco I don't know if I should trust them enough to look into buying Anthem.....
I get the appeal of shooters, but fuck me I played those more than 10 years ago. I want new ideas
glorified shooters sound fun. Shoot stuff in glorious graphics, in hand-designed environments, with RPG elements and fun powers.
Should worth at least a couple of hours of fun.
New ideas are way over-rated. It is about implementation and polish. Otherwise, Diablo 3 would not have sold 30M copies.
Plus, with all the talk here about going back to "traditional MMO" design, i thought this place hate new ideas. Otherwise, we should be all playing MOBAs and CCGs, right? Those are much newer than the traditional MMORPG concept.
I dont understand how people are not noticing this, EA games are pure copies of the same shooter formula that has been mostly unchanged for friggin 10 years.
a AAA company throws in Mehcs into the same formula (Titanfall) and they act like they just invited the first hard drive.
Where we should be going is not backwards, not to shooters with Mechs and not copying DOTA thinking its the only other option, but with crafting, building, different genres other than just fantasty there is a HUGE amount of possiblities here and to be frank AAAs are ignoring it, indies are not.
Maybe the reason most shooters look similar to older ones, with better art and graphics IMO, is because people actually enjoy those types of games. You don't honestly think people sit around playing games they hate because Gamespot tells them too, do you?
Most of the Indie games you rave about are exactly like one another as well. Gather, craft, build then pvp, same formula in most of the indie games of the last 5 years. All just reskins of eachother
Most here: 'this is the worst era in gaming, these games are terrible'
Me: 'this is the best era in gaming ever'
if battlefront is what you like, then stop bitching about it. Because I dont give a fuck what you think of the games I like but if you are complaining endlessly about the games you claim to enjoy while I never complain about the games I enjoy then for the love of fuck at least try to get a clue
I actually agree that this is the best era in gaming. I can get in a few rounds in BF2 before work, then when I get home I tend to play Ark or Rust for a few hours. I love the options I currently have.
I am addressing people who are complaining about games like Battlefront. I understand you like EA and you like Battlefront, that is your business move on
