    Re: Official Video Games Thread VIII: Titans are destined to fall

    So yeah...you know those pinball tournaments I've been on a kick with?

    I farked around and won one.

    Ball 3 that brought me the victory took 5 years off my life.

The best chance we have for a free DLC is if RDO is successful and they are able to tie the DLC and RDO and push the sale of RDO's version of Shark cards.

    I still haven't played RDO. I'm having way too much fun with story mode. Rockstar/Take-Two wouldn't like me.
    Same. Been too busy to play lately, but still making my way through single player trying to get achievements. Actually have to start the story over at some point to get a couple that I missed the first time around. I didn't want to possibly ruin any part of single player by going online, and from what I've read people aren't big fans of it. That's the only reason I'm holding out hope it may fail and they will go the DLC route.

    Unfortunately, GTAO was such a success they went and announced single player developments and then abandoned them.

    Microtransactions are also ruining sports games. All of EA is pretty much centered around ultimate team now and buying card packs. I miss when dynasty mode was where all the developments went.

    Yeah. Micro transactions killed triple A (substantive) DLC for the most part. Witcher 3 was the exception. Actually No Mans Sky did a great job (Like, maybe the best ever) with add on content after their massive fk-up on release.

    But these stupid online micros ruined open world games for the most part. At least certain aspects of them. And they aren’t going away anytime soon.

    It is routinely a top 5 game on Twitch, and this week has even topped Fortnite at times to become #1. Take-Two made almost $500M from microtransactions last fiscal year, even five years after release. It is now the highest earning entertainment property in history, closing in on $7 billion. For comparison, Endgame has earned $2.8 billion.

    Only 6 years after release, the GTA V casino is now open!

    Harry Potter Wizards Unite is out now. I chose Ravenclaw house. 2 of the others will be overfilled with people.

    Or should I go Rift S? I have the computer to handle one, but I've heard some screwy stuff happened with the launch.

    I've just discovered that Fortnite is available on smartphone, found the review on 100appsnow.com. The thing is that last year it was available only as a beta test and now all the features are fixed. Awesome shooter, I don't know why they haven't launched the Android app before.
