Videos like this always make me angry, not because I don't agree but because I agree too much. Also I love Event Horizon too maybe I should play dead space.
If you have hard statistical proof of every person pirating or buying a game and have hard evidence to support this then I am all ears. Until then it is all conjecture and as I have said the whole correlation = causation is a fallacy. There is no proof to this there is only people's opinions, rumors, and excuses being stated as fact.IamLEAM1983 said:Oh, right. Because my purchasing a game or pirating has about zero influence whatsoever. Because there's no reasoning behind the increase of the average triple-A title's budget. It's all just a happy sack of coincidences that nobody can possibly try to sort through. Game publishers are inherently evil and they do what they do because John Riccitello, Bob Kotick, Peter Moore and others are absolutely fixated on getting themselves a Scrooge McDuck-sized vault of gold coins.GAunderrated said:Please don't bring the whole correlation = causation fallacy to this video discussion. It is a nice little scapegoat that they tricked you into believing has become a relevant issue as if it never existed before.
Thanks for clearing that up. I was so naive.
Best post, and 3 posts in too.Urh said:How many Jim Bucks do I need for the hidden erotic gay fanfiction ending with Yahtzee?
Noooooooo, I said that MASS EFFECT had been introducing really stupid plot elements.Coreless said:Ok...what? so first you say you never played Dead Space and now you say they are introducing stupid plot points because Mass Effect did...right.erttheking said:Makes me glad that I never played Dead Space. See Jim, what's happening to Dead Space now is what happened to Mass Effect not too long ago, that and the introduction of really fucking stupid plot elements.
He said NAMCO. Hence the picture of Darth Vader who was in the PS3 version of Soul Caliber 4, and was DLC for 360 owners.omgeveryone9 said:At 3:13, Jim talks about Mann Co spearheading the idea on forcing us to buy things already in the disk or something similar to that. What is he talking about? I have not yet heard about this, and while I do love TF2, I recognize that there are flaws in the game.
Yeah, it was just directed at people that defend the bad decisions and say that that's what a company is supposed to do, that those are actually good decisions for a company. I've seen that argument quite a few times on these forums.Zachary Amaranth said:To be fair, they ARE just a company doing business. Doing it wrong. And amazingly, people will try and save them like THQ.Beryl77 said:I see sometimes people defending EA's decisions by saying that "they're just a company doing business". Fuck that, what a load of bullshit. There are tons of companies who do very well without behaving like they're related to the Antichrist. It's still their own, conscious decision to do those things, nothing else. Them being a company doesn't excuse that in the slightest.
Also, nice ending. Very well done.
I agree that's the proper consumer response: If it costs too much, don't buy it.irishda said:TL;DR: If you don't like the extras, don't buy them. You're not losing anything by NOT purchasing DLC, extra costumes, or fucking cheat codes.
My head just exploded over the irony of that statement. In a video where Jim trashes on micro-transactions, you bring up Hat Fortress 2?Airon said:Thumbs up!
Support the good publishers(like Valve).
I'm selling TF2 hats for Jim Bucks. I need more, 'cause Jim said so !!!!!
