This cannot continue!
What do Resident Evil 7 and Bravely Default have in common?
Let The Jimquisition explain, as we celebrate the return of a good Resident Evil game!
Square Enix has a roadmap of significant post-launch updates to Final Fantasy XV, going so far as to pledge entire narrative additions.
The idea of patching in more story is interesting, and in FFXV‘s case it’s even admirable. There is a downside to it, however, one that we ought to be mindful of.
As Bethesda proudly announces it will no longer provide review copies until the day before a game launches, The Jimquisition decides to deliver some hefty side-eyeing.
This news came just as your very own Jim Sterling found out EA considers him a “wild card” who isn’t to be trusted with high profile games like Battlefield 1.
Game publishers have been steadily manipulating the review process for years, and when you consider how shitty the “AAA” game world’s become… is it any bloody wonder?
Sterling’s little birdies are tweeting secrets again, this time bringing the delectable stories behind Deus Ex: Mankind Divided‘s cash-grab elements.
How much warning did Eidos Montreal get about the microtransactions? Exactly why was Breach mode included? And what about the next Deus Ex game?
The Jimquisition has naughty secrets to share.
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is yet another victim of this industry’s unchecked avarice. It’s an ironic victim at that, given the series’ themes.
So, let’s chat about the preorder bullshit and microshenanigans that inevitably dominated the game’s post-launch discussions.
Oh… oh Square Enix…
Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is finally out, but it seems we can’t ever have a major release – even a fantastic one – without some controversy overshadowing things. The grim news this time? Eidos Montreal’s otherwise fantastic release has become yet another “AAA” game to go the fee-to-pay route.
Well here we are again. No Man’s Sky isn’t even cold yet and we’ve got Final Fantasy XV filling in with the unreal hype and ludicrous “fan” outrage.
Yet more messengers have been shot as a delay news story became another example of what happens when hype culture rots people’s brains away.
