Someone making sense :smileysurprised:


It isn't that we were disappointed in the previous game the developer made, it's how the developer lied, scammed and treated it's userbase and community.


I hear EA does that all the time, plus they killed Burnout so they can do their stupid money-making crap.

 

 

I don't see anyone boycotting EA. :l


I refuse to use their Origins service on PC, is that a form of boycotting **you're looking for? One I can't gift to friends (thought about buying Battlefield 3 for someone but their service lacked the ability to do so outside of your country) and two you have to pay for the game plus handeling/whatever even if it a digital download.

 

EA


Look, if you're going to remind me that Burnout is dead one more time....

 

 

Anyway, is it working, this boycotting? I haven't bought EA games either due to lack of any Burnout, a *good* NFS game or anything good in general.

I don't think it is working on consoles, but I don't buy many games for consoles anyhow. Steam is what many PC gamers love, however if their service is still working they must be making money off it somehow. I'll wait until Steam/EA issue is solved (if it never gets solved) before buying their products. They still have Battlefield 2, Dragon Age Origins, Mass Effect 1 and 2 on Steam, and a few others. So it isn't like I am never buying their product, only not on PC. That is the same with ND, I am merely just not buying TLOU. If they change, I may get it or Uncharted 4. That's only if they change though.

No, such an attitude is the reason why developers can get away with unacceptable methods such as ND has shown with Uncharted 3. They lied to us, the did not keep their promises, they did not fix many of the game's major problems and so on...

 

I'll definitely keep an eye on Uncharted 4, but no way they're getting money from me for TLOU. If anything, I will rent/borrow it or buy it used = no extra cash from me.

 

Also, something that always crosses my mind when such a topic comes up: I work for my money and I know what it's worth. Lots of kids just go to their parents and ask for the next game no matter what.

They never had to work for a single cent. They don't really care if their former product was worth its money. I doubt it would be the same if they had to do the work in the household/garden for a months to get TLOU. Maybe they would think twice then if they were not satisfied with UC3. I have more than enough money to buy any game I want at any time and it would not bother me (financially) at all. But I won't and I know why...

 

 

Edit: Oops, lots of posts while I was writing... :smileytongue:


Well games aren't the most expensive thing out there, nor the cheapest I know. I've skipped on lots of games that I wish I've gotten. Last game I got before TR on tuesday was RE6 which was a mistake... and before that was Uncharted 3 over a year ago. The standard game is $60... I doubt many people would have to work months to afford it... and sure kids might just beg their parents to buy the game, but regardless of that, a sale is a sale and it doesn't matter as long as it was bought from a retail store new, it counts.

 

I know a lot of people here look at the company, but there are plenty of people who look at the track record overall. and the fact that uncharted 1, 2, and still 3 no matter how much you guys hate it, along with the previous Jak series, and early crash series were all great successes, I'm sure ND is still seen as one of Sony's better companies and will still have TLOU being a great success as well.

 

True Balance:
We felt that the Hunting Rifle wasn’t effective enough at mid-range due to its very slow fire rate. While every weapon doesn’t have to be as effective at every range, so much combat occurs at short to mid ranges in The Last of Us that we felt the Hunting Rifle felt was not effective in enough situations. By increasing its damage the Hunting Rifle user is now more likely to get a down on a wounded player, or can combo a Hunting Rifle with a pistol to try and fight effectively at mid-range.

Ever heard of a single parent raising more than one kid? Rent isn't cheap, some people are lucky just to have internet and cable, let alone a place to live. $60 for one game is a lot, some people have to work two jobs just to be able to have things others take for granted. You don't think some people have to work for months just to be able to afford a new game because they have other neccessities to think about? If I was them, getting a $60 game would be the last thing on my mind.

mine too. I would assume that if someone is thinking of buying a game for a system that was undoubtedly worth quite a bunch, they would be better off. If you're not financially secure in general do you really think having a $400-$600 console along with buying games $60 each is a good idea? That's going into money problems though, not problems with the game itself...

They could have bought the game before, perhaps got it at a garage sale or some similar scenario. Just because they have a system doesn't mean they bought it when it came out or that it was purchased brand new. Maybe the times were better 3 years ago, and they had two parents. Lots of things could have happened.

Amazing grammar, buddy! Oh, the irony!

There are only two tragedies in life: one is not getting what one wants, and the other is getting it.
