Discovered that R* now require you to install and run the R* client for running/launching GTA V. Never uninstalled a game so fucking fast before.
Done with Ubisoft and their Uplay bullshit, now done with R* and theirs.
I shouldn't need to use two separate fucking clients, in order to launch one fucking game.
Anyone who defends that level of mediocrity, please, find the local trash dump and wait for a trip to the incinerator.
For years I've been happy to use up to 1-2, sometimes 3 clients, but now it's just getting so tedious and annoying, to have my libraries fractured, clients not working properly, or clients that don't wish to compete in terms of game offerings, competitive pricing and feature support. Steam and GoG are quite literally the only two that do what was listed prior.
Imagine how easier it would have been to gain my attention and money, if you hadn't fucked things up so quickly R*.
£30 game, all the bonus content without need for pre-order, no shitty client needed, no further delays, and an honest to god amazing port job. That's all that would have been needed to gain my respect and trust, but instead it's none of that, and now you've lost me forever, because you want your little fucking cut, as if shark cards weren't enough for you already. Always gotta be more, more, more.
I'm gonna be honest, I feel like how TB felt some years ago, when the AAA industry was pulling different shit back then. I'm getting all kinds of fed up with that segment of the market. Fed up with multiple hoops to jump through, people defending stupid shit like "iTs JuSt AnOtHeR lAuNcHeR", completely hand-waving any and all logic/reasoning, in direct favor of the company that factually doesn't give two shits about me, nor the person parroting the same bullshit in their defence over and over again.
Like, I just want to buy and play a AAA game, without having MT's shoved in, without shitty console/PC parity, without getting delays up the arse, without exclusivity deals and without needing another fucking storefront client to play a game I bought on a different fucking client.
I wouldn't be as heated as I am now, since I'd just turn to indie gaming, but even that sector has gone to utter shit this year.
