    We are at an interesting time where AAA gaming budgets can't really support a 60 dollar pricetag, but gamers seem unwilling to spend more than that unless they get some really nice goodies at that price point. I have played some great small studio games on steam and have seen those same games break into the PS4 market.

    Or you know, they could scale back a bit, and make a few more Sonic Manias to fund the Sonic Forces and actually take time and do it right so people don't feel cheated spending $60 on a pretty paperweight...

    No one has any problem shelling out 20-40 bucks for a well-made small budget title.

    Didn't you skip on Axiom Verge and Hyper Light Drifter?
    Play Crimzon Clover, or go to hell.

    This makes sense. If done right I would play the shit out of some budget titles.
    Hell some of the older gaming companies can do (not computations) but ports of their old stuff
    Like what Sega tried to do with their AGES PS2 lineup that for some reason they fuckered up and lost traction.

    I would so drop $20 or so for a Sega PS4 port of Panzer Dragoon or OutRun

    I sure did. Because they aren't up my alley.

    I only like the Metroid style in Metroid, and select Castlevanias, and I can't tell what the fuck is going on HLD... It's too pixelated

    I was talking with a friend about this. He was blaming mobile games/f2p games for DLC manhandling and etc in AAA games and I'm like nah that's not it lol. I told him that sure maybe devs see how shit like League makes money and etc, but the game is already free, and its making money from possibly new players buying character packs to catch up or people choosing to spend on cosmetics.

    That's not that same as making games on bloated budgets and needing to sell $40-50 season passes to recoup costs. Season passes aren't bad, i'm always down for more content as long as it's appropriately priced, worth it, and doesn't seem like purposely cut content.

    But yeah devs gotta chill man, i think this is mostly a western dev problem with the bloated budgets. BOTW only needed 2mil sold to break even and from what i been gathering since that game dropped is that it's massive af and loaded with content out the box.

    The MCU is the hottest property going right now. You expect Marvel to not take advantage of it? I bet if Infinite was released in the 90s 2/3 of the game's roster would be X-Men characters since that's what dominated at the time.

    On Amazon. I don't see too many bros walking up to a counter at Game Stop, Best Buy (or any public store) to ask for Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash.

    Back, now I can respond more properly:

    I admit, my standards are far more lax than others here. It takes something like what WB has done with Shadow of War or what Nintendo did with amiibos in Samus Returns for me to boycott something (though in the latter case it was just the amiibos themselves).

    Gameplay is king in my eyes; I'm immensely forgiving of weak presentation if the gameplay hits the nail on the head for me. It's why I loved SF x TK despite it being a bit of a visual mess. In the end, if it's something I feel I'll really enjoy and pour hours upon hours into, then it's something I'm willing to invest in. Doubly so for fighting games due to the competitive side of things.

    ...I just wish there was a way to say "I only support part of this" beyond buying it for under $60 :rofl:

    In either case, I will say that it's probably best that the rest of the consumer base isn't as forgiving as I am. :razz:

    Mario gonna overcome those odds.

    EDIT: @LordWilliam1234 so let me get this straight... Modes and costumes that don't affect the base game being locked out as DLC or lootboxes is going too far, but characters that provide hours of that "king-making" gameplay and were clearly being worked on alongside the base game is okay? Really?

    I agree, I didn't feel marvel was worth 60$ and would never buy it at that price.

    But 30$ and some dlc where I may not even buy all the upcoming characters feels about right.

    I see.

    I still wouldn't buy it because any money going to Capcpom for that game as it currently stands diminishes us all as a community and sends a message that half-assed effort is OK as long as you slap a cool DLC character in there a month or two later.

    They need to learn a harsh lesson, and absolute financial rejection and failure is only language they understand.

    its a lot easier to be a neet or weeb online than it is irl.

    I have no shame though. I'll preorder the shit out of some anime titty game in person at gamestop*

    I'm friends with a couple former GameStop employees, and there were definitely people that pre-ordered the collectors edition of Record of Agarest war, which came with a body pillow. And they actually picked it up at the store. So I really don't doubt there are people who will walk in to pick up Senran Kagura. Those people do exist.

    WB won't be doing that anymore. They noticed the shitstorm it caused and now will be offering that DLC for free. Warner Bros will be making a direct donation to the family.

    I was not ready for a new arrangement of Lower Brinstar when I reached area 5. This my favorite theme in the entire series. I wish this game was a person so I can fuck it raw

    I just got to Area 3.
    Those fucking Norfair areas in Area 2, with the music, so god damned good. Lol, I wish I hadn't looked at your soiler but now I know I have more to look forward to. Good damn, this game. I feel like I've made progress, but there's still so much more to do.
    Fucking loving it.
