My experience is that there is a very vocal community of gamers who do want regular rebalancing and content updates in order to ensure that competitive gameplay remains balanced. If you go back to the old floppy disk and CD games there were always aspects of gameplay that the designers tried really hard to put in games but which were never really fun because the balance was off. In competitive online games (e.g. Overwatch or Dota) you see this sort of rebalancing constantly as a means of keeping things interesting.
I agree that we don't want buggy games released but the problem, again, is that we're not paying gaming companies enough to both support post-release costs of the games (e.g. gaming servers, community support, etc) as well as enough to do complete bug testing. And let's be honest here, most gamers are not paying full price. A lot are getting games either on steam sale or are getting repackaged game licenses from sites like G2A that broker sales of games which were bought for cheap on steam sales.
I agree that a lot of the online game marketplace stuff is a pain in the ass, but at the same time, I totally understand why the game industry is changing in the way it has. I can't really argue with the fact that cuts have to come from somewhere and a company like Square-Enix will try to keep their content creators and either start charging microtransactions or whatever.
tl;dr: I hate game companies too, but not as much as I hate gamers.
basically game developers have never called me homophobic names for getting ganked by a hanzo main in overwatch

Dark Souls. Always going back to it.
Anything at all I guess I could google a synopsis so stick with "what keeps you going back"?
I like 3 a lot and it's the one I've beat the most times. But I don't know if it was a great idea to put Bloodborne enemies in a Dark Souls game.Ty, have you played the DS3 DLCs yet? I have them but haven't played them yet. I heard The Ringed City is Old Hunters tier good.Oh and bili for your first playthrough try to avoid fat-rolling. Fat-rolling happens when the weight of your gear is a certain percentage of your carry limit. Unless you are able to get parry timing right (I suck at parrying) rolling will be the main way you avoid getting hit.Also protip: Stamina is life. Don't forget to put your shield down otherwise your stamina will not regenerate fast enough.
EpicNameBro has probably the best DS1 series called "From the Dark".I would watch a Ty series though.Do you stick to the SL120 meta or whatever it is now?
It is a great game.Hey, how did you deal with the brain guys that cause frenzy? I hated those guys. I think I just put on all the frenzy resist stuff I could tried to creep up on them and just ran in ax flailing when they noticed me.Usually didn't end well.I don't know if it's even fair to call it a souls game. It's so much faster and you get rewarded for being aggressive unlike Dark Souls which will push your shit in if you get too aggressive.
I bet you guys thought under/unemployment and low labor force participation was caused by a combination of technology, outsourcing, etc. But you'd be wrong.U. of Chicago economist Erik Hurst has it all figured out: it's videogames.eta: Bloomberg to the rescue!
