Forums - Gaming Discussion - If Ghost of Tsushima was made by a greedy AAA developer.

I don't think any greedy developer can top the greedy tactic of forcing you to buy a $300 plastic box you don't really want just to gain the privilege to play their game.

Instead they can force you to pay $1000 over seven years to wear pretty costumes in your games, get all the content, and skip the grind. If I have to pay $300 just to have games release in a complete state, for a flat $60 price tag, with no Denuvo, and a physical copy, I'm going to do it. I've bought well over 50 games for both my Switch and PS4. Dividing the $300 price tag of the consoles that comes out to paying $6 extra per game. If you only buy 30 games for a $300 console that comes out to $10 extra per game. Even if you buy a new console on launch day for $500 it's only $16 extra per game after buying 30 games. That's far less money than what microtransactions, and other shady tactics are going to bleed you per game.

That being said, I do buy PC releases so long as they avoid greedy tactics, release same day/date as the console version, and lack Denuvo.

Now imagine Super Mario Odyssey if it was made by Ubisoft.

- Post-game moons are now in a DLC pack.
- More than half the costumes are microtransactions + you can pay to dye the colors of each piece of clothes of your choice.
- Speed and Jump boosters are sold to players who can't skillfully play some of the challenges or races.

-Every regions look like New Donk City.

I sense much anger was driving the OP.



OP is comic but near to the true.
But on the joke about the details, one criticism that is quite valid is that the inside of the mongolian tents is almost exactly equal among all (but I understand that military stuff would be standardized anyway). The houses themselves are also very similar to one another both inside and outside (which also was probably quite common in Japan at the time, since people had a lot of other concerns, it was pre-industrial world, and well most people were poor).

You forgot the game would come on a 4Gb card and you would need to download the rest and use a big space of your memory.

I'm with the OP fully, and wish to subscribe to his newsletter. Forgot about: Additional account ( a'la Uplay ) needed to access online features. Just going lazily to drop this post here I made last May while wrapping up Far Cry 4. There's only so many ways one can talk about the worst the worst elements of AAA publishers. And I'm beat. :)

"I barely touch Ubisoft games any more. Played one last gen, and two this gen, having started Far Cry 4 a few weeks ago. I was basically loving it, but also living in dread at the prospect of having my entire campaign fall apart. The amount of main campaign mission bugs. Uhg. I've had to re-do several main and side missions because I couldn't progress, ie: pick up the bobble, get in the truck, anyway, not really what I'm driving at.

The game harasses the player to sign up for Uplay every time the game is booted. I pick "skip", because I don't want to give the ghouls at Ubisoft access to all my online information so that they can sell said information to their cockroach friends, in exchange for Elephant War Paint, and a couple of stupid guns. Moving on...

A few days ago, I decided to buy a Far Cry pack, on sale on PSN. Far Cry 5, Far Cry New Dawn, and Far Cry 3 remaster + all the DLC for these games. But. I also decided to wait as long as possible to do so, to give Ubisoft an opportunity to fail. Which they did.

After finishing the campaign last night, I wanted to go online. Yeah. Now the option to skip Uplay sign up, is not there. I mean, they literally still present it as an option, but to go online, you have to create a Uplay account. Unbelievable. I can't stand it when companies hold back content I've already purchased behind some fake-ass barrier. So, these greedy shaved apes have taken the goodwill generated by a piece of software I mostly, really enjoyed, and flushed an immediate purchase of 3 games, and all future purchases, down the toilet. Forever. Except South Park. 🤕

So when I see Ubisoft in the red, it doesn't surprise me. But really, this was an excuse to rant."
