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

    Youngest was playing a new game over the weekend. Looked like a new version of Battlefield, but turns out it was a new COD free release.

    I haven't picked up a controller in about 4 years but I almost sat down and gave it a try.

    Maybe I will re-play "The Last of Us" story-mode to pass the time (and, ya know... prepare!)

    Gamestop used to do that with digital currency. Very annoying.

    It’s probably more along the lines of Kingdom Hearts series.

    I assume free to use doesn’t mean use for free?

    Disney says developers are free to use Disney IP in games. At the 2020 DICE Summit the Disney VP of Gaming said, "I'm here for one specific reason: to empower you to do really unique things with our characters." Leisure Suit Goofy?

    Online Multiplayer is the worst thing to ever happen to video games.

    If it means the company will make more money, then yes. If it can be shown that good single-player games can produce the same profits as the 'games as a service' model then Rockstar will continue with games like RDR2. These games still have an online lootbox component that produces a metric crapton of revenue.

    No worries everyone, it’s just the guy who co-founded the company, created and wrote its two biggest franchises. Nothing to worry about.
