I wouldn't say he was trying to drum up hate, but it does feel like he is using Dragon Age: Inquisition as an example of something wrong based only on what he has read elsewhere and then to go down the slippery slope of "this is the future of games". Now we had this future in Dead Space 3 and funny in all three games that have had something similiar Mass Effect 3, Dead Space 3, and Dragon Age: Inquisition I only bought one box in Mass Effect 3 and that was because I had leftover "BioWare points" from buying single player DLC which won't happen this time because they dropped the silly point system for the PC. Heck from my experience Mass Effect 3 was worse then what he is talking about here because there are four consumables that you would randomly get from the box instead of just healing potions and after a few boxes from using the in game credits I never reached the bottom of my stockpile.Right Hook said:Yeah he went a little off the rails in this article, partially truthful but it really felt like he just wanted to drum up anger for EA which has by now been stereotyped as evil. I've only played a bit of multiplayer so far but haven't felt incentivised to buy anything. The matches are tough and scaling would be nice but there has always been something endearing about gritting your teeth in a co-op game space, fosters comradery, at least in my experience.
What I think is worse is what Assassin's Creed Unity is doing and using more then one game as an example would have made the article seem better.
