Default Gaming BS of the week

January 25th, 2019, 12:49
A lot of garbage. Any stock that suffers an immediate drop in price is subject to a ton of worthless ambulance chasing law-firms looking for a dime off of distraught investors. While a few (and I mean very few) have merit most of them are settled out of court with the law firms making $$$$$$$$ off the insurance company; and the investor left in the dust with at most a few cents.

Maybe but with the amount of bad press and other problems at Activision Blizzard in the last few months I don't know. Something smells rotten to the core at this company.

Ubisoft apologizes to players "surprised" by Shadow Heritage's ending, says it's part of a "set story."
Well Ubisoft has caved in and will change it.

Jim is at it again as he calls Kingdom Hearts Stupid Gibberish.

loading…
Kingdom Hearts III is imminent, but we're not in the business of just letting you enjoy games around here. Let's talk about how awful Kingdom Hearts is. I mean… it's a good game. A great game. But it is also awful, stupid, and utter gibberish.

Not BS, but … I'm irritated : What's goling on with steam ? There are updates now for almost every second game in my portfolio … Even older ones like Contrast …

Uninstall or backup on external drive all games you're not currently playing.

------------------------------------------------------------
Now a serious misleading BS article title:
https://www.pcgamesn.com/the-divisio…ion-2-campaign
The Division campaign was finished by more people than any other Ubisoft story
Read it then think a bit why exactly is that so then ask yourself why the reason isn't mentioned in the title.

------------------------------------------------------------
https://kotaku.com/ea-has-announced-…-ja-1832161024
EA has announced it will stop selling FIFA Points on January 31 in Belgium after previously saying it would fight claims by the country’s regulators that FIFA’s loot boxes constituted gambling. The company apologized to players in the country “for any inconvenience caused by this change.”
Apologized for… Wait what?
The law will punish someone who throws feces on me and that one apologizes to me for inconvenience caused by not doing it? Unbloodybelievable.

Yeah, I was wondering about that. 30 games updated 0 bytes? I probably only have 30 installed!

https://www.pcgamer.com/xbox-game-st…cus-on-gaming/
"As we’ve expanded our focus beyond the console, the Xbox brand has also evolved from its original roots," Xbox Game Studios corporate vice president Matt Booty said. "Today, Xbox is our gaming brand across all devices, no matter how or where you want to play, or who you want to play with."
Oh it's Xbox across all devices and not Windows phone? Where's the Blizzardlike pompous primadonna question "don't you guys have xbones?"
Here's the middlefinger, Booty.

Hopefully developers will ditch this corporate idiocy, completely turn to now opensource Vulkan and avoid Microsoft's store like a plague (won't be a problem now when Epic caused an earthquake of a sort).

I feel sick.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

https://www.pcgamer.com/respawn-is-w…udio-ceo-says/
In its quarterly earnings call today, EA said that it has a new "premium" Titanfall something coming this year. Premium, in this case, rules out another free-to-play experience.
Will these scammers stop misusing words already? Bogus money or pretend currency is nothing premium. Same as with Kardashians' "literally".


------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Battlefield 5 sales didn’t meet expectations during Q3, says EA
After Jim Sterling's debunking video about "below expectations" one would think companies will stop with that bullshittery. As it happens with ignorant fools that believe the audience is blind and ignorant too, eems they won't.

Easy - they predicted more when they estimated revenue for the quarter. Since they didn't meet unrealistic expectations provided to shareholders - shareholders are in panic.

Yes I know but many developers would love those sale numbers, but not EA. Nope it's the time old tradition of hyping your shareholders with unrealistic sale projections.

Basically like Joxer said the age old excuse of " below expectations."

https://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2…ist-sim-legacy
Peter Molyneux shares first details on workshop-tinkering industrialist sim Legacy
Inspired by 1984 game The Entrepreneur.
This scammer isn't incarcerated yet? How come?

-----------------------------------------------------------------

https://www.pcgamesn.com/dishonored-…-2-multiplayer
Arkane Lyon – the studio responsible for much of Dishonored 2 – seems to be hiring to develop the monetisation of its upcoming projects. A recent job posting (via resetera) for a monetization designer at the French studio would see the successful candidate working with several teams “to manage the monetization features” of its upcoming games.
From hero to zero.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

https://www.pcgamer.com/bioware-says…h-mass-effect/
In a studio profile on Polygon, Anthem's executive producer Mike Darrah and general manager Casey Hudson suggest that Bioware still has faith in the Mass Effect series after Andromeda underwhelmed fans in 2017.
“We’re definitely not done with Mass Effect," says Darrah. "There’s a lot of stories to be told. We could pull on the threads we put down with Andromeda; we could pull on threads from Mass Effect 3. There’s a lot of interesting space to be explored.”
Empty talk, nothing to show, but the fear from failure that is just about to happen: Anthem, is obvious. Damage control never sounded more pathetic.

Well my replies in order of Joxer's posting.

1. Surprised that hack is still making games after scamming buyers for Godus.
RPS: Do you think that you’re a pathological liar?

Peter Molyneux: That’s a very…

RPS: I know it’s a harsh question, but it seems an important question to ask because there do seem to be lots and lots of lies piling up.

Peter Molyneux: I’m not aware of a single lie, actually. I’m aware of me saying things and because of circumstances often outside of our control those things don’t come to pass, but I don’t think that’s called lying, is it? I don’t think I’ve ever knowingly lied, at all. And if you want to call me on one I’ll talk about it for sure.
2. Not surprised given the article about tension between Arkane & Bethseda.
Following the ‘disappointing’ releases of Dishonored 2 and Prey, Zenimax decided that they didn’t do well because no one buys single player games, a sentiment that one source stated was “dead ass wrong.” This mindset has led to a hard pivot by Zenimax to focus more on multiplayer and live service experiences, with only a few single player games in the pipeline.
3. Yep I agree damage control.
