Turtle Rock Studios' Evolve is perhaps one of the bigger releases of next month but the game has already been embroiled in controversy for keeping some select characters behind a paywall.
It is a big deal because these kinds of practices are beginning to ruin gaming imo. I won't be supporting it.
I will not support it either.
i moved the game from, never buy to rent upon hearing the game has singleplayer too.but now its back to never buy. feb has far too many good games for me to be wasting money on dlc
I will be supporting you guys in not supporting this game and the current practice of wallet rape through DLC that so many devs seem to think is not a big deal.
I won't be supporting these guys either, but rather throw money at developers like CD projeckt Red , who they themselves said they don't approve of paid for dlc
I don't like the fact you have to be damn near rich in order to play these games. Throwin down 50$ or 60$ isn't enough these days. I'm probably passing on this. But its that classic case of where your friends gonna be at. I explained the DLC robbery but they don't care what I have to say they're buying it anyway. Similar situation with Destiny. Evolve will make allot of money because they're people who just don't care and wanna play with friends and are willing to pay just to keep up with them.
Not a huge fan of Jim Sterling but he calls Turtle Rocks DLC practices what they are: BULLSHIT! https://www.youtube.com/wat...
Wow I think this is probably the worst crying from a devs Ive seen in awhile.
I can't believe she actually thinks that gamers would have a "knee-jerk reaction" to DLC even if it's handed out for free. C'mon now.
Things like this just show how out of touch devs, publishers and the gaming media are with the gaming public. Look at Nintendos new youtube policy. Its total trash. It makes Nintendo look bad and worse yet greedy but thats what happens when you lose touch you make bad decisions and mistakes. Like EvO having a per order bonus that unlocks everything and Assassin creed Unity that has unlockables for real money. Games dont need hundreds of millions of dollars of ads to sell them. If 60$ is not enough shrink the advert budget.
That is because some still do. I'm sure I saw a ridiculous article complaining about the Witcher 3 DLC should have been on disc.
Screw Evolve! I won't even get interested in paywall scheming.
Was never interested in this title but everyone was raving about it so I researched it and was not really impressed with what it offered from game play to the DLC galore so I am voting with my wallet and moving on
I actually played in a few of their betas and really liked the game a lot. But this ridiculous DLC scheme and the fact that they have $100 edition and so much extra DLC I won't get it anymore. I have 1500 Steam games alone. Dying Light and Resident Evil are holding my interest for now.
Wow they really do sound like pricks. :I
When Evolve gets the reality check that we as consumers will choose to vote with our wallets there's gonna be some huge backlash at Turtle Rock. I'm not plunking down money for this. I was really pumped for this game but not now. They should have announced their dlc plans way after launch because this game is gonna struggle to sell now.
Obviously people are making a big deal out of it, because it's simply another game thinking gamers are stupid. Still, most people are exactly just that, considering the situation we're in with DLC and such.
if the game was good it wouldn't be so bad but they want you to spend more money on DLC on a awful game.
$15 for a new monster...no shit people are making a "big deal". The pricing is ridiculous. People are tired of seeing the amount of DLC that are mentioned even before a game is released! Before people get their hands on the game devs / publishers are already shoving DLC down people's throats, with their hands out ready to grab every cent they can. What a sad state. Nothing more than profit margins, that's what gaming has become now. Witcher offering free DLC, regardless of how small it is, it's the gesture that counts! They could have easily charge a few dollars for horse armor, but they're not!
There are 3 types of DLC *Bad DLC where it's day 1 cut content at a ridiculous price *Good DLC where it meaningfully adds something extra *Unrelated DLC where it's a side story or takes place after the main plot or just some random things
Well well well, $15 for stuff that's already on the disc :-/ "do get where they’re coming from and you do need to look at the fact that, you can play against DLC Hunters that you don’t buy. So say you’re doing solo mode and I’m playing Wraith I can play against DLC Hunters even if I don’t own them." Getting sick of this shite, if it's on the disc we have already paid for the disc content, so we should get it.
