@ StPaddy Hey thats kewl youre on steam im on steam also. If anybody wants to add me as well its
feel free to add me. Just let me know who you are and youre from this site. I have people add me all the time from reddit but we never end up actually playing anything lol.
I really feel you on the group. I have a group i gamed with for about 11 years. A great buncha guys. But right now theyre playing call of duty and i just cant stand that series so i am kinda without anybody to game with atm. Which sucks. Because besides gaming i dont really have any human contact outside the house. So gaming to me is kinda important to my mental health even. Just hearing a human voice sometimes helps. We have a discord settup and I have my own discord but nobody on it but me atm. I thought about maybe when that anthem game comes out first of the year i might try to find some people to play that with. I hear you on the FPS too im so tired of all the rude obnoxious people on shooters myself it just feels kinda pointless to try to have any fun in an environment like that.
And yeah i dont think bethesdas gonna get away from the money money money mindset. It seems all these bigger companies end up falling into that trap. Except CD projekt Red the people that made the witcher. Theyre kinda my heroes atm but theyll probably fall prey to it also eventually. Greed is king lol.
I haven’t played a Bethesda game since Fallout 3, so I’m not really in the position to complain about their “money money money scheme” that you mentioned.
What I can complain about though is how when you used to buy a game, you got the whole game. Now we live in the age of “add-on items’, items that are exclusive only if you buy a overpriced exclusive edition’, and worst of all, season passes”.
“Season passes” being the most egregious of the offenders, because not only are they almost always overpriced, you have to wait for the full content of the season pass to come out, bit by bit, and by the time you get the full content of the season pass, which is usually like a couple of characters to a fighting game, or extra weapons/modes to a FPS game, you’ve already moved on to a different game, so you don’t really feel like going back to the original game, especially if it’s a FPS game, or a game that relied on multiplayer, in which the scenario there, is that most of the original player base has left, and the only players still playing the game are players that are addicted to that game and know every way to kill you the second you log into their lobby.
There are still a few game companies that haven’t fallen into whole add-on, season pass scheme, but it seems like it’s becoming more and more the norm these days.
Oh, and don’t get me started on “collector’ editions “ that not only have exclusive items, but some cheap plastic model that probably costed a tenth to produce of what they’re selling it for.
I think that’s all the ranting I have it in me at the moment. Also I probably made a ton of spelling/grammar mistakes but I’m too lazy to go back and proofread.
I know you posted about liking Tetris over 2 weeks ago, but I thought I’d mention a new Tetris game called “Tetris Effect”. It’s Tetris with a few tweaks on how to play it, but what makes it worth playing is the visuals, which are absolutely amazing. Have it a go if you’re looking for a new kind of Tetris.
