    At E3 2019 you could see their focus was on mobile titles to increase revenue and I dunno if you tried Blades, but it was awful, chock full or micro transactions and meant to be as absolutely horrendously Grindy as possible to get you to buy your way through it.

    Now this is just all worrying because one has to worry with how bad Bethesda has gotten about ES:6, because theyíve lied to their customers over and over and over again, if they say it wonít be heavily monetized, we canít trust them.
    I've pretty much lost hope with Fallout and I am waiting to see how the elder scrolls successor goes.

    They suck these days as a company though with nonplayable overly expensive garbage.

    As a publisher, next year is doom eternal, so at least there’s that, but that is from id software.

    Otherwise there’s really not much on the horizon from Bethesda, Starfield and ES:6 weren’t even shown this year so they’re probably years away.

Taking those positives and filtering them through your All-opinion, No-experience bull**** would be "No innovation in a AAA title!" and other such nonsense.

    Also, I never said I wasn't enjoying it.. the opposite, actually. What I haven't done is go on an endless bitchfest about something I haven't played. You should try that.

    Another point that I should add that is either #5, or is neither a Pro or a Con is that Black Isle does seem to be bending over backwards to recreate the TV show Firefly here... but with added monsters and robots. That isn't a bad thing, Firefly was amazing... BUT, I do find myself rolling my eyes during companion development conversations that seem almost lifted right from the show, in spirit, while not directly from the script.

    What can be purchased in the game shop can easily be earned with credits you acquire by playing the game. Are you really going to go down your insane argument-from-ignorance path again?

    Why is it that the emotional underpinnings of your opinions always seem inversely proportional to your actual experience playing a game?

    Not the point, the point being Pete Hines promised the game would have cosmetic only micro transactions and would feature no season pass or paid DLC.

    Scrap kits, repair kits, robots, fridges and now an MMO style subscription for basic gameplay elements that should have been there to begin with and that were broken, the private worlds weren’t really private, the unlimited scrap boxes (which by the way they said wasn’t possible with the engine) swallowed peoples loot and made it disappear.

    You seem to love defending scum bags, whether it’s Trump or Bethesda, it’s your favorite hobby.

    Heh, well no, it is the point. You lose your **** about things that you don't actually understand, and when called on it you think that more ignorant statements will help cover for your initial ignorant statements. I played the full game from beginning to completion of the main quest solo and when I was done I had more than enough credits in my account to get whatever I wanted. None of what was offered in the shop could be considered pay-to-win, and regardless, I could have it for exactly $0.00.

    And you are so militant in you ignorance that you have tried to hijack this thread to renew your ignorant jihad.

    You want to talk about The Outer Worlds? Let's do that. I'm sure you have very important opinions about yet another game you have never played.

    Hey howís Fallout 76 doing?

    Oh yeah, they went back on their cosmetic only promise and are now selling game changing stuff in the atom store...

    Oh yeah they just introduced a $100 a year or $13 a month subscription service when they promised no DLC or season pass and locked basic gameplay elements behind a paywall and it was.... all broken.

    ĎFallout 76í Now Has A Premium Monthly Subscription Fee, No Seriously

    Players say Fallout 76ís subscription service is busted, Bethesda responds - Polygon

    Meanwhile this game is 1000x better than 76 and youíre ****ting all over it whilst constantly, even though I was right, about everything except I thought it would go FTP, I never expected them to charge a subscription, defending Bethesda regardless.

    Youíre in the extreme minority saying this game has more negatives than positives and youíre in the extreme minority saying stuff like 76 is a positive experience.

    Bethesda wishes they could make a game this good.
