Turtlerock clearly stated that these characters weren’t in the pipeline weren’t going to be developed very well articulated for everyone tracking the game’s progress why that was the case.
In this instance I’m reminded by GamerGate that Games Journalists are not gamer’s friends, they’re competing forces one trying to dominate the other, gamers self educating vrs being taught a message.
In this case I see an adversarial role towards both gamers, and game creator here, because they’ve re-promoted the controversy of the DLC after I feel the natural lull of the topic had subsided.
I want additional content for this game as a gamer…Game dev’s want to be able to make that content without a backlash from the situation not being perfect for the consumer.
I’m not going to say that there wasn’t going to be a mob of new uninformed folks, but the perceptions that they’d have had would’ve been addressed by going to the root source and seeing the dev’s thoughts, and limitations on the subject.
AAA games are expensive, AAA game studios are bulking as **** and can’t just sit on their thumbs deciding how they’re going to spend those man hours.
I feel like this entire controversy is bullshit that games journalists flung at the game after all of the media money spent on coverage was spent…and they still wanted to exploit all the attention they’d funneled at the game…so what do you get?
A bullshit piece of controversy spun up and re-dished to people wanting to get angry at a game company making the only logical decision they could make to produce additional content within their limitations.
