    [–] Skyward Sword is more then I could ever hope it to be. Not_Nathan_Drake 4 points ago in NintendoSwitch

    Skyward Sword is boring. It gets super padded out at the midway point asking you to just mindlessly roll back through all previous content to find pointless shards, and gives you little to no direction on how to do it or where to go, just jump in and point your sword randomly hoping to get a minor ping.

    I love that you love it, but it's easily the worst Zelda game.

    I don't know how much clearer that could be. Why are you people fighting this so much? It's directly and literally pay to win.

    You can do exactly the same thing with all currencies too.

    [–] New Leadership at Blizzard — J. Allen Brack steps down, Jen Oneal and Mike Ybarra will co-lead Blizzard moving forward Not_Nathan_Drake 7 points ago in Overwatch

    Jeff was pushed out because he was the last man standing in the way of CoD modelling Overwatch. Jeff didn't want to turn it into annual box release, same as CoD, but get ready for that, because that's what OW2 is now.

    Feel free to disregard this as made up, but I can say with some conviction, that's exactly what they are turning OW2 into.

    Both are purchaseable for gems. There is not point arguing this, everything in this game can in a roundabout way be purchased for gems or tickets, which can then be bought in chain for gems too.

    Because it takes a second for the filmer to realise they need to help the person.

    You keep spelling environment wrong.

    [–] Chris Metzen Statement (2 page) Not_Nathan_Drake 1 points ago in Blizzard

    Chris and Mike were and are both fine fellows. They were strong bastions of defence against a lot of shit and heralded a lot of intiatives for change and progression.

    How about put your fucking pitchfork down and stop raging at every man that walks into your rage fuelled SJW path, ay? Maybe stop hating on people just because they have a penis and use a bit of the old intelligence and stop employing the same behaviour that racists and bigots use.

    [–] I don't mind how much monetisation there is, as long the P2W element is removed Not_Nathan_Drake 2 points ago in PokemonUnite

    People in r/nintendoswitch would. I'm the op for the mega post that caused me to get death threats and even one poster to DM me my home address and say they were coming to knife me. All this because I warned people a f2p pokemon moba was predatory.

    American TV is a fucking embarrassment.

    It's hugely disturbing a kid is talking like that.

    Look up anti Vax moms and wasp mom's. That's you for free to play games. you are literally trying to convince someone who's professional career of 15+ years has been spent studying and successfully manipulating this stuff to huge success. Man doctors must suffer hard with depression around this stuff. Its like trying to fight a tide with all the tools and expertise while someone is just unplugging a dam nearby.

    It most absolutely is not. I can't even begin to start pulling out everything that overshoots league. You are absolutely miles away from the reality of what this game is. Hopefully you can see how exhausting it is to get people to understand this.

    Haha you are most welcome. Now please have this donut. Its free, and it's on this plate of other donuts that aren't free, but this one I'm giving you now has extra sprinkles and they all have a dusting of cocaine. Please enjoy this free donut.

    I'm not claiming to be a good guy. I'm a guy who learned and studied this very complex section of the industry and now use my knowledge to make a good salary and suck a lot of money out of people's pockets. I do like to try to find the balance because I still want people to enjoy themselves without feeling shame for their purchases. Also finding that balance is what brings long term success instead of quick wins that fail long term.

    Am I good at it? Yes I am. Its why I am in a high salary band and the person behind some of our games most popular features. Yes I'm tooting my horn, but I know my craft, very very well.

    Thanks! Earlier in my career I worked as a support agent for a very well known game and found I developed a real disdain for a certain group of gamers but also understood that there is a very wilful ignorance towards this stuff, which is why a billion dollar industry popped up around it and part of why I ended up transitioning up to monetisation and development.

    Knowing how these mindsets operate is part of what makes you a veteran in these roles. As you can see from some of the replies here, it's very easy to manipulate people using their emotional connection to a franchise to spend and defend.

    Once again, read once again. You keep missing the very clear and massive point that this stops very quickly and currency after your first character becomes almost non existant. Please try to understand this.

    What you are talking aboit costs millions in marketing to do and takes hundreds of thousands of accounts to manipulate. A reddit post isn't even a drop in the water of change in how you you would actually go about stealing any other games acquisition audience.

    That's not how any of this works at all.
