#780466 Yoobee Gaming Nights:Halo 5 - Wednesday 13 December @ 8pm

Posted by ChieftaiNZ on 14 December 2017 - 11:51 AM

IMO Halo 5 shouldn't be one of the games for a game night. It takes up far too much space for what it is, especially considering MCC is also an option and provides a hell of a lot more options.

Does Microsoft still do exclusives?

Because I was watching the Game Awards and Nintendo and Sony announced some cool games. It'd be nice to get some cool original first party games on Xbox as well.

I would love a switch. Super Mario Odyssey looks fantastic, but I can't afford it. Put my money into Airsoft. Figured I needed some more outdoors time and playing a real life first person shooter appealed to me. Glad I did spend the money though, its fun as hell to run around dressed as an army man shooting people!

Typical EA trying to pretend to be the good guy, saw this on Facebook, also saw a few posts around the internet, gamers posting things like "We did it! EA is changing the Hero unlocks!"

 

It's way too early to celebrate, no matter how they change it, the game will still be pay to win / pay to get ahead whatever you want to call it. Since the entire game is built around loot boxes, it's here to stay.

 

Hopefully gamers still vote with their wallets and not fall for EA's tricks of doing right by gamers, they're not.

This is what so many people don't realise, is that no amount of b*tching will fix the core problem, which is having progression gated behind loot boxes. Thats how the game was built, thats how it will stay. The only way its going to get better is if the game sells below what is expected.

 

SWBF2 release is the most important event for the future of video games. If it goes on to sell well after what is arguably the most outrage we've seen towards microtransactions in video games, every other developer will go "Well f*** it, look at all the negative press they got, and they still made a f***ton of money." If its sales nose dive its very likely that less developers will follow EA/DICE with this model because the Star Wars label couldn't sell their game after the backlash.

EA are changing Hero prices because they are good people.

 

Electronic Media PR person warned us yesterday about this specific tactic.

If your internet is down there is this place called the outside world. It has animals and trees and people and roads.

It's got more grind than an MMO.

Good graphics, but a sh*t pay-to-win system, that they're trying to implement into all games now.

#775943 News and Current Events Discussion

There's an insightful line at the end of the Stuff article though:

This isn't about offending people. This is about contributing to a status quo that simply isn't right.


There is a blurred line somewhere between making offensive jokes and actually reinforcing existing societal iniquities (haha wow my average word length just doubled) and I thought that was pretty well established when there was the thing with PewN*****Pie, but now everyone's saying no it's ok, it's just jokes.

 

 

Because theres a difference between a comedian performing the type of jokes people pay to see him do, and Pewdiepie calling someone a n_gger out of anger.

 

CONTEXT MATTERS

There should really be some better software filter for these bots.

 

I think I'm going to steal its motto and meme these bots.

f*** everything. 343 broke the 2 years of silence on the MCC, with announcements of new patches. Starting next Autumn.

 

Well f*** it, better late than never.
