I agree - I am really sick and tired of EA milking the players dry. At least we on PC have this option - what about the poor people on Consoles?

Cheating is a choice, and whoever cheated regretted it later because it took away the fun and challenge of the game. If EA keeps up like this, in a year or two we are going to see God mode being sold in form of an armor skin for 10 dollars.

I'm not defending EA, but all the DLC is optional, you can vote with your wallet, if this kind of stuff stops selling well, trust me they will either stop making it or they will just include it in the damn game instead.

Trainer have always been for people who can't beat the game by themselves. I personally don't see the point in playing a game with cheats. One can as well watch the gameplay on youtube then.

I would understand it if you were forced to buy this stuff but you are absolutely not.

That is exactly the reason why Devs dont like PC gaming, they would like it dead so gamers dont have rights any more.

They would like it that everyone is on console so they can be pushed around. Long live the master race :P

The DLC that actually affects your scavenging, etc in the game is completely optional and all of those items can be found in the game. The exceptions are the items such as the Sarcastic Bot personality...WHICH I GLADY BOUGHT AS DLC.

There is far less outcry, none in fact, about the Limited Edition and Gamestop/Amazon Bonus material. Two merchants where many of these people having a hissy fit bought their copies.

Hypocrites.

They bought the game now they are cheating to get items faster than the game intended and this somehow makes them superior to EA? Sorry dummies you just gave up your percieved moral high ground. And BTW, EA is laughing at you and glad you bought the game.

Waht we are really hearing is a bunch of cry babies bawling because people are playing the game and buying upgrades faster than they can earn them. Upgrades which affect these sissies in no way whatsoever. But some how they can't bear the thought of some person half a world a way not playing the game the way they do. I'll bet many of these caterwauling criers play the game on Easy.

Has it really come to the fact that people are having such a conniption over the fact that other people aren't playing the game in the same manner as them? Is this about Trophies and Achievements? Are they that shallow? Get on with you life.

Don't like it? Don't buy it. Grow up and find a new hobby. Ooops, they'll just cry about someone else not knitting exactly like them as they scream like George Costanza's mom. "What the hell are you doing!!!!"

I hope they do this for sim city 5.

@below

I'm not getting neither version or waiting for delux version. because i hate the direction they took it in. this clearly isn't the simcity I waited this long to play. as much as i was hyped for this game. the way they have sh!tted on their longtime fans.(myself included) i rather watch it flop,then to give EA or maxis my money to support game.

Yeah I looked at Sim city 5. They have two versions coming out(limited&deluxe). I will wait for the deluxe version price drop.

Lol, see, this is why these quick cashins dont work on PC, On disc DLC? Cracked in the first month. Microtransactions? Cracked in the first month. Always on DRM? Cracked before the game even comes out.

Maby PC games would sell better if pirates didnt offer a better game.

I'm going to refrain insulting you for your ignorance.
on console there is a game breaking glitch that allows you to to inside a door, leave, let the door close and enter again,what this does respawn random items, infinitely. You can do this on all versions of the game. This trainer just speeds up the process.

Maybe console games would sell better if publishers ceased with the cashgrab nonsense and let the studios make a game we all truly want to buy.

Oh go right ahead on insulting me, everything i said was completely accurate. Resident evil 6? On disk DLC was cracked in weeks, that goes for quite a few fighting games too. Pretty much every game ever released on PC has a crack that bypasses the DRM, and this is proof of bypassing micro transactions, not to mention the dozens of ways to avoid paying for subscription games.

And Gabe newell himself is the one that stated that the key to overcoming piracy is to offer a better service than the pirates can.

Please point out my ignorance please, i don't want to run around looking stupid because of some minor misconception.
DarkFireHawk  +   680d ago
I agree with your point. If it wasnt for Publisher's greed - many games would have been so much better. Not rushed, or dumbed down.
adorie  +   680d ago
You've asked, and I delivered.

"Maby PC games would sell better if pirates didnt offer a better game."

this is nonsense. games do sell well on PC and some PC games that have ended up on console have sold better than console.

On a final note, what do pirates have to do with making a better game? I'm seriously curious about that statement and the thought behind it.

Training wheels cheats form EA are now paid dlc?
What ever happened to good ole button codes or passwords?
dboyman  +   680d ago
Greed :(
phantomexe  +   680d ago
You needed a cheat???? but all the micro crap is already in the game. You don't have to pay for it unless you want to cheat. Like beating a dead horse here.
peowpeow  +   680d ago
Haha. What ever happened to inputted cheat codes :)
metalgod88  +   680d ago
I haven't agreed with EA on a lot of their decisions, however, I do feel for all the artists and programmers and level designers etc.

So the way I see it, is sure, you can pay for all this extra stuff that should be just a simple aabbudud input code and download hack, but maybe consider buying the dlc not because you love EA(which I highly doubt), but because you either like Dead Space, or you want to support the development teams that worked on it, so that hopefully, they'll want to make another Dead Space.

Just on a side note, I haven't played Dead Space 3 and don't want to. I've seen gameplay videos and it just doesn't look like my cup of tea. But If I'm really enjoying a game, I'll have no problem buying DLC just to show support and say, "Hey, I like what you're doing. Keep doing it!"

Buying the DLCs wont help the devs. The devs have alrleady been paid a fixed amount to make this. ALL the profit goes to the publisher . . . EA.

Not purchasing it will ensure they wont pull the same crap again on us in Dragon Age 3. The only way you wanna help the game is to buy the game but not the DLCs. This will show them that their practice is wrong. But that the game is still liked.
