This is the very first episode of the analog circle podcast where I will cover the news stories in the gaming industry as well as my thoughts on other related gaming topics.
If they offer a ton of multiplayer content then yes. Games like Battlefront and Titanfall which were light on content and no single player should have a reduced price.
Thanks crazy chris for your opinion. I totally agree with your statement. I'll be sure to shout you out on the next podcast.
I don't care how much games with no campaign cost since I'll never buy one.
Totally agree, taking the campaign out of a game is like ripping out its soul, just feels empty and pointless. Sinple-player campaigns often give the multiplayer context and help establish the world and characters, and that is very important imo.
This is the Key reason why I will never buy battlefront.
There are dozens of highly popular games out there that are multiplayer only and they remain fun even after hundreds or even thousands of hours (League of Legends, Dota 2, Team Fortress 2, Dirty Bomb, etc). It is all about content, execution, and post launch support. Look at the upcoming game by Blizzard, Overwatch, it is $60 but will be able to hold itself up over a long period of time. That being said, if Battlefront had a couple more weapons and two or three more planets then I think it would be a pretty solid game. The season pass is still over priced though.
Well written sir
no they should not be priced at full price games this is just lazy practice they are doing now software companys. they control when it goes offline for good could be one year or two years look at games like socom and mag on ps3 online only close them down where it still had a strong followers Battlefront would have been amazing if it had a campaign this should be a $40 game max Titanfall another good game but no campaign and no offline play priced around $25 but not worth it anymore more people move away so less people play it. as a gamer we should not let them control what we buy if people stand up to this crap then they go back to making full games. rainbow six is another good game but with no offline play as promise it going to die down after a year or so. this should be a $40 game
no they are only half a game
No and nether should digital games either. Multiplayer is phenomenal, as a game mode, not as a game. The more games move toward online only, the less valuable they are. Especially when factoring the additional cost of console subscription fees required to play them. Scam-ola.
i did with bf4 i never touched the sp
No, they should not be full price. I think that as these online-only games become more prominent, you will end up losing the fanbase of many franchises, since there is nothing to go back to and play years later, once the servers have been shut down. It basically destroys the concept of having a 'video game collection'. I still go back to play the Rainbow Six Vegas games, which still have their servers up and running, but even if they didn't, the single player campaigns are great, and you can play split-screen on your couch with a friend. I love game experiences that allow me to go back many years after a game has released, and online-only is the death of that.
