Alright, I've been thinkin'.
Free to play.
My god do I despise most if not all Free to play games.
Especially the ones that incorporate premium memberships and real-money currency. I always thought that it was just absolutely stupid having to pay real money just to purchase some customization items that don't do anything to help you. It's just cruel and sadistic to see someone like me who absolutely loves customization in video games and I don't even get the CHANCE to get anything with out "You require 22 fuckcoins to get this item! Buy it now with your own money shithead!" popping up and fucking you over. (TF2 not exempt from this fuckery.) And then there's the Premium membership assholes who look so pompous and proud of the fact they get something that doesn't really make you look any better in the community and only makes you out to be a rich phallus and the fact you can brag over the other people who don't have all the fancy shit you have. (You dick.)
Now, the whole point of this, is to show that a game called Hardware: Shipbreakers is coming out. RTS. Looks promising. Made by the developers of Homeworld. (I'm a gigantic fanboy for Homeworld.)
FREE TO PLAY
Okay okay okay. So you're probably thinking that I'm a fuckstick for thinking that "just because it's free to play means its bad" and my opinion sometimes is not consistent.
Yeah that is true.
But it's made by the developers of Homeworld! Come on, FUCKING HOMEWORLD! They made a great story for Homeworld and they're making co-operative play for story mode?! (As far as I've read on an article about it.)
Do you think I want some screaming child over the microphone while I try to delve into the story?! Fuck that shit! Story mode is almost always single-player and is the best alternative to little kids playing RTS games. (Save for the exceptions of Borderlands, and some other games I'm too lazy to remember.) Lets not even go into the lag issues.
And it will have PvP.
FUCKING HELL DO I HATE PvP.
Player versus player is ALWAYS TERRIBLE. ALWAYS.
I can't have an enjoyable time while I'm getting my ass handed to me on a silver platter by some Korean online who's a master at Starcraft 2! It's not fun! That's why Player vs CPU was invented! (I like to think so.)
Don't even bring up the counter-argument that "It's challenging and offers a better experience" BULLSHIT. You'll just get frustrated every time. It's not challenging. It's just annoying, obnoxious and every other word that relates to IRRITATING AS FUCK.
I might be thinking a bit biased here, but I don't really give a shit somewhat.
It annoys me to Hell, Tartarus, and the nth Dimension then back.
Oh yeah, Homeworld was bought by Gearbox.
Well shit. They better not fuck this up like they did Aliens and Duke Nukem.
