Did you actually read what you wrote? You judged Respawn and Apex Legends before you even gave it a try because it’s an EA game with loot boxes.
I read it as “Alpocalypse” for some reason.
This is usually the kind of news that gets followed up two years later with: “Former devs run away screaming from corporate management job to leave gamesindustry forever.”
They are going to head a new studio that only develops loot boxes.
Like a lot of people say, Valve should put games they feel are adult themed, into an adult section. Anyone that can circumvent that, is probably old enough to find porn that won’t be Valves responsibility.
The author asked what makes this game different from other sexual themed games? It’s simple, even when nudity is…
Wow, well done, really really well thought out and communicated. To be honest I didn’t read the article but did watch the video, and I couldn’t agree more with you. I could probably ramble on about my own thoughts, but honestly they would just be right in line with yours.
I think it’s good to explore these concepts the way you have in the video/article, but as a fellow parent and someone who grew up in a period when violence in games garnered far more controversy than sex in games is now, I will never agree with using the two subjects for comparison in a debate on censorship.
Fantastic article! It certainly deserves more attention.
Every time I get really high I’m like “someone drugged me!” Which is true, because I am someone.
“Sir! The internet is melting down over Destiny 2 microtransaction shenanigans.”
“Quick! Be charming before they turn on us, too!”
So Assassins Creed Origins. Welp, It’s an Assassins Creed Game. After playing for about 5 hours I’d decided that I wasn’t going to write about it because I didn’t find anything egregious enough or great enough to discuss. But by the time I’d gotten to 15 hours I knew I had to. Because AC origins is so painfully…
It’s been a busy month for gaming. We’ve had the Loot Wars Battlecrate controversy, we had the DLC for one of the best games of the generation, we had a refreshed (though not nearly enough in my opinion) Assassins Creed game, Call Of Duty, Sonic, Nioh releasing a PC port. The list is long.
Horizon Zero Dawn (or as I call it Screen Shot: The Game) released it’s Frozen Wilds DLC this month which gives me an opportunity to very quickly review the DLC but also, more importantly, analyze the base game itself.
“This system is not designed for your fun. It’s designed to be less fun so that you pay more in the hope that the game becomes fun.”
We’ve reached a point in game monetization where customers like Old Pliny here will happily plunk down dollar after dollar for DLC. In the last couple of years alone I’ve bought and enjoyed Far Harbor, Nuka World, Blood and Wine,Hearts of Stone, The Frozen Wilds, Ashes of Ariendel, The Ringed City, The Old Hunters,…
When the first Battlefront 2 (really, fuck this trend of just starting again when it comes to numbering) has more features and better progression then a game that comes out ten years later you really have to wonder how EA shit the bed this hard.
If trump/sessions said that last bit on fox news, half of their viewers would simultaneously orgasm and it would be screamed by every right wing nut job until there were no more public defenders.
Is this comment literally ‘Boyega doesn’t look as heroic as other black men’?
Well the solution would be to put out not-terrible campaigns, surely?
