Ian - Alexander ArtsYakuza 0 and Kiwami are 50% and 33% off respectively on NA PSN. Thats US$50 for both - pretty good deal! Unlucky for me NA PSN isn't accepting my credit card because my IP is in Taiwan... So I guess I need to get some PSN cards online, again.
Yakuza 0
The glitz, glamour, and unbridled decadence of the 80s are back in Yakuza 0. Fight like hell throug

AerintheADEQUATE   Ze plot. It Thickens.
Fenrir   They'll just turn the MT's off in those places, the money train weighs too much to stop.
OR they will just take the GTA5 DisneyBucks system and have you buy what you want.
Cottelito   @Fenrir: If Hawaii and Belgium manage to do what they attempt and push the conversation about predatory micro transactions up a level in their respective legislative systems "those places" will be USA and Europe, aka the two biggest markets for western developed AAA games.
If that happens even more benign MT systems (like purely cosmetic ones) can get caught in the crossfire and then it won't matter if they are made by Rockstar or King. Governmental legislature are not exactly known for being nuanced when it comes to bringing the hammer down once it does get to that.

We might lose a free internet, but we might also lose loot boxes. (TBH is rather have the former if they're mutually exclusive :-( )

Fenrir   @AerintheADEQUATE
I've pretty much accepted that these Half-Game/Half-Movie can have value after the Not-Point-and-click games Telltale has recently been making.

This Game/movie apparently has the decency to be short (3 hours) so the they said the story will be varied based on the choices you make.
AerintheADEQUATE   Wow. That Venom voice actor makes me miss Topher Grace.
Barachim   No kidding, I've been thinking how even Topher Grace sounded better. ='D
[Mod] Aussie Legend   She's a good voice actress but I wish Black Widow didn't sound so obviously Laura Bailey

AerintheADEQUATE   Same strategy, different game.
EA's turning the MTs back on once people have moved on and aren't paying attention anymore. Net Neutrality is going down eventually, because that's what the money wants and in DC that's what matters. If people make a big stink, maybe they'll delay it 6 months or a year, but they'll just try again and again until they get what they want.

Thor   Yes, you need someone to push and promote your game in an increasingly competitive and over saturated market. Making a good game isn't enough. Mediocre game with good promotion can sell better than a good game with bad promotion.
AerintheADEQUATE   As unfortunate as it is, Thor's absolutely right.
For all we know there could be a game-of-the-generation languishing in obscurity on Steam with zero marketing, a creator who doesn't know how good it is, and one or two purchasers who let it slide into their backlog never to be played :-p
Hokum   I wasn't before, but I am totally fine with the AAA big games we see every year. COD, FIFA etc. generate money into the industry, make more people gamers and feeds the need for more games.
This is really the same as for other types of entertainment; the big ones pay for the smaller ones, be it football, basketball, Star Wars or Marvel.
