@barbarossa213: I wouldn't say angry is the right emotion, more like amused.
@soliaired50: lol almost as bad as CoD and AC? I don't remember CoD ever releasing 2 games with in a year then releasing the 2 games again the next year because of "improvements". Let's not forget the 3 games release of Pokemon. Assassin's creed gets milked but at least there are smaller spin-off games that mix it up. People talk about CoD and AC but Nintendo is the worst offender of milking franchises. So if anything, Cod and AC are almost as bad as Nintendo.
Are we really complaining about difficulty now? Lol I didn't grow up playing on the NES or SNES, I was running around with a Gameboy instead. But I tried playing those games and **** are they waaay more difficult than Cuphead is. I think the developers don't need to understand difficulty (I think they very well do though), why do we want every game to be super easy? Difficult games are not common, most games have a variety of difficulties to choose from, so I don't see the issue here. Either learn the game or drop it, there are so many games to choose from to complain about difficulty is complaining about a non-issue.
His answer to the very first question he was talking like the players didn't stick with the game because it was too different, but most if not all the criticizing this game received was saying this game was too similar to other games. I haven't played the game and probably won't, but I think Cliffy B is out of touch with gamers.
I see this as karma taking effect. Cliffy B has been talking shit about everybody during the promotion of this game. I just see all that bad energy coming back around and hitting his sales. Why would I buy a game that is so similar to other games, filled with loot boxes/micro-transactions, made by a guy who won't release it on Xbox because of business (more like personal) reasons, then proceeds to call people fanboys if they call him out on his shit? No thanks, keep your $30 game (none of that $60 multiplayer only bullshit LOL).
@t3rm1n8rx: I'm just sitting here patiently waiting for KOTOR 3... any day now... any day.
@tom_cat_01: Nobody is saying that you shouldn't be considerate of other's feelings. The problem is that companies are being too considerate of other's feelings.
It's all about context, if I see a person who looks like they are feeling sad, I will be considerate and be a little bit nicer than usual. But if a person sees something that offends them, the proper response shouldn't be to eradicate the object (though they just changed it) that offended them from existence to appease the very tiny minority of their player base. Bungie should've said nothing or that it wasn't their intention to make the symbol (not apologizing) then move on. They overreacted.
It is very strange that developers care so much about not offending people but feel nothing when shoving a deluge of micro-transactions and DLC's down player's throats in order to suck every single cent from gamers. Bungie didn't do this to be considerate, they did this in the hopes they don't lose any potential money.
That is terrible, selling a product that has the potential to ignite your console. I wonder if they created a defective product and decided to sell it anyway, what is even the point of this then? Just for collecting? Seems like a waste of money, save the $100 and go buy a nice dinner or save it for a steam sale and buy a **** ton of working safe to play games. That would be way better than buying a defective product.
Remember when loot boxes were only for Free to Play games, I remember.
Remember when only Free to Play games had in-game currency that you could only get with real money, I remember.
Remember when you bought a game you didn't have to deal with strategies to get you to spend more money, I remember.
Remember when games were games and not just a scheme to get you to spend more money, I remember.
Remember when you earned cool stuff by playing for it, instead of playing the game to earn credits in order to maybe get cool stuff, I remember.
I know people are going to criticize what I said above, but I just want to play games and not have to engage in this ridiculous practice. I wish it was easy to just stay away from things like this but if you buy a new game it is most likely you're going to be confronted with this garbage. In my opinion gaming has become overrun with businessman tactics (micro-transactions, loot boxes, and DLC that should already be on the disc) instead of just making and playing good games. I do ignore as much as I can, but it would be nice if I picked up a game and there wasn't a developer's hand trying to get in my wallet. I know I'm just complaining about vidyagames, but this practice is just everywhere like a plague right now.
@craigtl: Screaming? More like just pointing out the obvious. Why not just make a WNBA game? Is it because it won't sell so they piggyback off the NBA? Seems like forcing a women's division in a game when there was no demand for it is more political than anything, especially from a franchise that is trying to outsell 2K. I get that not everything is SJW crap, but this is obviously taken advantage of the political climate.
