Tell everyone about your New Games, Old Games and New Old Games. Hurrah!
Anyone got a suggestion on a game to play? I enjoy the ones I am currently on. I just want something new. I'm not really a WoD fan (I pretty much only like Possessed and Sin-Eater), though, I'll try one out. I'm pretty open to any suggestion, really.
This pisses me off, greatly, being a Destiny 2 fan and all.
Somewhere along the timeline, these greedy motherfuckers forgot that they were in the business of providing entertainment to us for trade, not proving us with a means to supplying them with a constant revenue stream.
Uh. No. Getting a constant revenue stream is literally the number one purpose of their (and most profit-based) business.
No, I understand from a business perspective what business is.
What I was trying to say is that I'm not a fan of this strange shift from "we make an entertainment product for consumers who enjoy videogames" to "we make an impulse transaction product with an associated video game."
This is about greed, not about the product. This is about mutating an existing product that has done well for decades into building a revenue stream by means of psychological manipulation.
The patented microtransaction tool is specifically designed to utilize the psychology of reward, competitiveness, and the negative reinforcement of failure to drive sales.
What the fuck ever happened to just putting out a fun game? Quid pro Quo? You make a fun game and I'll buy it?
This transition to manipulation of the customer base is really mean spirited from a consumer standpoint. In fact, I might even read up on the legality behind designing monetary systems to specifically psychologically generate a feeling of need, and whether or not consumers are truly being preyed upon.
Dragons are little of all of it: They started out as beasts , that were tamed, and then began to be bred for intelligence ( and size, both large and small- some rich lady wanted a lap dragon of course). Most are 'controlled' with magic. They've got a variety of intelligence levels, so magical collars are more about 'spacial awareness for the less intelligent ones. Human-intelligence dragons are deemed a kind of 'citizen'.
I would say yes there are nations that are rising up currently. The city of 'Kirag' is one such region ( where the game would be based/ is based).
Slavery? Its not restricted to color or ethnicity, but is based based around... something else. People started created 'Slave lines' for particular duties, but magically reinforcing them. (So the rich and powerful got 'more fancy', while the slaves got more 'practical'). It got hammered about 200 years ago, so its more 'classism', in Napoleonic dress than anything. People pinging you for your heritage mostly: Got a lot of courtesan slave-blood in (and so look extra gorgeous?) Someone's probably gonna remark on it, and might try to peg for work as a Courtesan, not that its wrong to use it, but its sterotpying to the extreme.
Plenty of Industry relating to dragons. (Dragons are measured in Feet), so the Largest is about fifteen foot tall and 30ft long, (wing spans vary, if they are flying-varities, the utmost would likely be around 160ft.) If not, Wings are gonna be all over the map. (small, non fuctional ect).
Noblity is 'earned', its a meritocracy, as is Royalty ( its a combination, the Divine Right, comes from specical Oracles and confirmation via sacred objects. Each House has one. So becoming Peerage, says: You have some that Oracles have seen worthy.
