Bethesda hoping to calm upset fans with Rage 2?

"Dive headfirst into a dystopian world devoid of society, law, and order. RAGE 2 brings together two studio powerhouses – Avalanche Studios, masters of open world insanity, and id Software, creators of the first-person shooter – where you can go anywhere, shoot anything, and explode everything."

They seem to be confused on what the gamer wants and are throwing anything out there to stop the conversation on the failed Fallout 76 game, and the fact that they have not even started planning for Fallout 5. The irony coming from the fact that their highest rated version, Fallout New Vegas, is not one of their four main releases, Fallout - Fallout 4.

They have now released a game like so many in the past decade, awash with many pointless and idealess content. They clearly don't understand when they have a winning recipe, and want to focus on what other companies are doing instead. Sound familiar Bungie? Halo followed that same path towards empty forgetfulness.

Bethesda, in true form of ignorance, seems to be trying to reinvent the basic gaming formula of Call of Duty, without having the same skin to the game. They are focusing on weapon skins, costume looks and other pointless things that they hope many people will spend money on for some reason. Just another drop in the bucket of worthless games that has no draw for me, and an unknown amount of advertising wasted in trying to get a player base to fall victim to the idiocy of microtransactions in pointless games.

Keep in mind, this release is during a time that Bethesda is trying to reinvent their gaming engine, meaning this game is already out of date before it was even on the market.

I saw many reviews on Steam saying the same thing. Between 8 to 11 hours and nothing left to do for a 60 dollar game at base. This feels like a bad cash grab from a failed Fallout 76 option.

Bethesda lost me when they made Star Trek Legacy. 

 

Cool concept of a game but without Ultimate Universe mods it is incredibly dull

When gaming companies focus more on the cash than content, gamers go their own way. 

Plus, there are a slew of FREE games on Steam worth noting before you spend $ on Bethesda.

I'm currently playing Warframe Planetside 2 and Crossout all three of them free, enjoyable, not pay-to-win and very entertaining.

Also, most Early Access games are free, no need to drop $100 bucks on an over-advertised title that hasn't proven anything for itself besides the fact that the hidden costs will go above the price. That's also another thing that keeps me away from PS, their yearly fee... NO WAY I'm fucking paying $50 or $60 every year to play games I've already bought, no way. 

Don't let them blame, shame or tame you!

I am expecting that the gaming model will be changing completely in the next few years. Gaming companies like Sony Playstation and Microsoft Xbox are facing huge losses in the market due to their inability to deliver on all levels. If they plan on being relevant anymore, they will have to take the changes of the past 10 years or more in the gaming market and throw them out.

Micro-transactions, paying double for the same thing, paying for access of a game you just bought, pay walls and all of these other greedy price arrangements will have to be dropped, as this model is no longer going to interest the large majority of gamers. They will sooner get a free game on mobile or steam than spend the 60 dollars on a new IP, then spend hundreds to thousands over the next year to stay relevant in a new game.

Gaming companies burned the customers too much with this and it is now taking a big part out of their bottom line.

I remember when new games' prices were $15 or $20. You'd buy it, unpacked it, put the cd into the reader and..voilà, play!

Nowadays, you have to buy it, pay for it then pay again, pay again, pay again, pay again... all that for ONE game that you can't win of finish because you need to - you guessed it - pay again!

Look at that joke Star Citizen. That game has been in development since 2011 but they have NO qualms selling this unfinished product based on promises and fireworks. Some of those players will drop thousands of dollars to be able to download new ships and "modules". If that doesn't stink ripoff then I'm starting a line of perfumes based on fish odor. Current players of that game hope and pray it will someday be finished... maybe when their 2-month-old child hits puberty and that's not even sure...

Developers have succeeded  in selling half-finished products and charging ten times for the same game thanks to pretty images and shameful marketing tactics. That's when they're not injecting identity politics into their title to please the 2% of female gamers

But gamers are waking up too and giving those greedy bastards the finger.

You can ride a wave only for so long until it comes crashing on the beach.

Game prices have gone up, quality down, and they introduced post-purchase expenses. It is not worth it, to be sure, but it is just a phase. It is only a matter of time before these large corporation types fail and we get back to the roots of it. This counts towards comic books, superhero things, Star Wars, Star Trek and so forth. For now, it is all being destroyed to push an  restarted agenda that has nothing of value. Even the NPC crowd don't support it past being loud and obnoxious, as they will not put money where their big fat mouths are.
