I’ll just throw it out there – the Resident Evil 6 pre-order bonuses look and smell like money grubbing DLC to me. Sure, it’s a multiplayer mode map that not many people will actually give enough of a shit to try more than once or twice. It’s just the whole principle of the matter to split up the 3 maps among various retailers. Wouldn’t this segregate the community? Unless… you pre-order 3 copies to get all the different maps, or they get packaged and resold at a later date. Wtf bro. I’ll give it to them, they have some mountain-sized cajones to drop that little gem into the market on the ass-end of the recent backlash that was their on-disc DLC fiasco with that Street Fighter 73 Turbo X Tek XX Marvel… or whatever the hell it is. Their responses to the whole matter was probably some of the saddest and most pathetic things I’ve read (besides my facebook wall) in a long time. I’d post some links to certain references but you can quite literally find hundreds of pages about the fiasco by Googling ‘capcom dlc controversy’.
“So, hey guys I got a great idea. Let’s come out with a $60 MMO with a monthly subscription. The game will offer no leveling, yet you still have to level skills; a crazy amount of skills. So don’t forget that we are also legendary at being terrible at balance. The plot will involve being human in a modern setting, a part of those tin foil conspiracy theories, and wicked crazy monsters,” says the Greedy Asshole.
“Okay, sounds pretty standard,” says the bent-over customer.
So this game is old news to pretty much everyone who isn’t a staunch SWG fanboy right? Right?! Fine, but I’m still going to rant about why this game never had any intention of being a serious MMO outside of milking the cash cow that is the Star Wars religion, er.. franchise.
For those of you that are still soldiering on and “enjoy” this game, you get nothing from me except a facepalm. I, for one, believe this is quite possibly one of the worst, over-hyped piles of steaming caca I have ever had the displeasure of playing my way through. I’ll pretty much be repeating what’s already been said, but I just have to get this off of my chest and onto the interwebs for my own personal satisfaction.
