Let me just come out and say that I have no issue with subverse. You gotta admit how surprising these pledge numbers turned out to be. When I went on the kickstarter page, the pledge numbers just kept increasing. Did I back it? That’s not important right now. What is important is how surprised the developers were. Speaking to PCGamer, the creator himself said: “The surprise factor in all this was that Subverse became a kind of symbolic pledge for many first-time Kickstarter supporters who are unhappy with the current state of the gaming industry... but that’s totally not what we set out to do, we just wanted to make dick lasers and big bouncy anime titties.” Put some respek on this man’s name!
Gearbox revealed Borderlands 3 gameplay and it is looking pretty neat. The one thing that really stood out was Randy Pitchford saying that there won’t be any microtransactions in the game. Several hours later, we found out it was bold faced lie. There will be microtransactions for cosmetic items, but it seems Randy has taken it upon himself to change the widely accepted definition of microtransactions. When Game Informer made a tweet about it, Randy vehemently denied there being any microtransactions in the game, despite there being microtransactions in the game.
In other borderlands news, PCGamesN reports that Borderlands 3 will be replacing the term “midget” as a means of being more politically correct. In my opinion, this is unnecessary, but probably not a big deal. Either way, you know what’s gonna happen once more people coming aware of this.
Epic is evolving from buying exclusives to buying entire companies, and there is no B button we can press. They bought Rocket League developer, psyonix and then word came down that they were planning on removing the game from steam. A couple of hours and a trending on twitter later, they released a statement that basically said: Woah! We didn’t say all that!
