I don't think complaining is a bad thing because it can lead to a better experience if the company listens. Imagine if people didn't complain about Halo Infinite's original showing, it would still look like an early xbox one game made by an indie studio. Yes gaming these days are better in some ways but it's also certainly worse in other ways. The idea of being able to buy the full game and getting all the content is becoming more and more rare. So while it is easier to access the base game, it doesn't mean you get the full game and yes, cosmetics are part of the game.

Think of it this way, a company like Activision has a better battlepass system than Halo Infinite on their free to play Call of Duty Warzone. Imo, if you're game has a worse system than Activision of all companies, you are absolutely doing something wrong.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Yea but I believe the weapons are included in the free tier.

I think that's mostly down to devs these days seeing how mobile app devs do things as their process is to just release an app that's somewhat finished, but built upon down the line, and though we did have a load of buggy and even unfinished games way back in the day, games these days seem to be fully going into the mobile dev side of things, releasing games half baked and expecting customer outrage, but knowing it will be built upon down the line.

I don't like it, because we all know that devs can and have hired people to come test their games and actually spend 3-5 years making a good game. These days we see even some AAA's spending as little as 2-3 years, because of sequelitis setting into an IP.

There are some indie games that have spend many years in dev, like Project zomboid, but you can tell the dev is doing it as a labour of love and that's one example I'm fine with (given the limited resources), but for AAA's?, hell naw, they have the publisher and should have the budget and time to boot, but sadly we're hearing stories about both budget and time being restrained, leaving only the publisher to call the shots and it shows how tone deaf half of them are. 

that being said, I do wish we could do something about F2P games, without having to include loot boxes and BP systems, because one induces stupid amounts of FOMO in some people and the other induces a collection habit (which can also be a weakness for some), both of which aren't exactly healthy when in the old days, the former (being cosmetics) was there for you to unlock entirely for free, with zero strings attached (which also meant next to no complaints, because it was entirely up to you to go unlock them instead of paying). 

I think I would be far less jaded and complaining, if AAA's didn't entirely think they have to rely on F2P and lootboxes and just went back to the old days of giving you a full game with unlockables and not having me second guess if I'm being FOMO induced or having to pay extra for something.

Hopefully there will eventually be a high refresh version.

That 12GB 2060 makes less sense the more we know about it.



Please excuse my bad English.

Currently gaming on a PC with an i5-4670k@stock (for now), 16Gb RAM 1600 MHz and a GTX 1070

Steam / Live / NNID : jonxiquet    Add me if you want, but I'm a single player gamer.

Makes as about as much sense as a 3060 with 12GB and a 3070 Ti with 8GB. Hopefully Nvidia will apply a more logical vram scheme next gen...

So my friend recommended me to get 13 Sentinels: Aegis Rim as it's on sale for Playstation 4 with a pretty deep discount. So I went to PSN and bought it from my laptop as I was too lazy to get up and plug in my ps5. Then I looked on amazon and it was not only cheaper there but it's also the physical version. So I was like well, I may as well buy it there instead and get a refund on PSN.

This is when I realized how much of a pain it really is compared to my usual experience on Steam. On their refund page, it tells you "If you have started to download or stream the purchased content you will not be eligible for a refund unless the content is faulty."

Uhhh what? I am sorry but if I started to download the game, I am not eligible for a refund? In what universe does that make any sense? It's digital content... Luckily my PS5 was unplugged so I didn't start the download but most of the time, one would think people would download something like this immediately. Then comes the actual refund process. While on steam, you go to the website and get the refund in a matter of minutes, I had to wait on queue for an hour with 400+ people ahead of me... That's insane in 2021! Luckily once I got through, it was easy enough to tell the support rep that I wanted a refund.

It's crazy how archaic the console digital fronts continues to be. Even mobile has a better system than PSN which is nuts. While it's better than having no refund system at all, these digital store fronts should at least try to mini-mick steam if they are gonna charge a monthly subscription for their online service. Regardless of which, it made me realize how much I take Steam for granted to not have to deal with such nonsense.

I was so confused by the critic phrases that were displayed in that 12 Sentinels Switch trailer, phrases like "the award winning unparalleled Sci-Fi epic".

It looks like an indie title to me, even though it's from Atlus and looks to be more VN based, which doesn't scream "unparalleled Sci-Fi epic", and makes it come off as selectively overhyped. I used to be into my VN's like Clannad, but I never once thought of any VN I've read or interacted with as something I'd want hooked into my veins. 

Had to look it up before hitting post and found it is a "side scrolling adventure with Real time Strategy". Good job marketing dept, that Switch trailer absolutely told me all of that, totally didn't waste the entire trailer showing off cutscenes, characters talking and a load of music booming in my eardrums.

Yea idk if the full asking price is worth it but I will be finding that out soon enough. I don't really like to judge a book by its cover all the time, especially these days when so many AAA games shat the bed but I think I would have paid $40 USD for it instead of waiting until it's now $23.99 USD. Apparently it takes 30 or so hours to beat so certainly getting value in that sense.
