    Matt Morgans reacted to killamch89 in Weekly Recap #18: Apex Legends backlash, Saints Row, Timesplitters, and More!   
    EA always overdo the microtransaction thing so the iron box event thing never surprised me in the least bit and I don't mind another Saints Row but no more demons/futuristic vehicles/weird superpowers. I also don't want it to be a crappy GTA ripoff, they need to add some unique mechanics. I'm excited to hear that another Timesplitters will be out - it feels like forever since I've played it.

    Seeing the latest GTA V DLC banned in at least 50 countries is hilarious to say the least because there have been somewhat similar updates with gambling mechanics but because it isn't in a casino setting those same countries allow it.

    I used to play Fie Emblem on the GBA all the time - it was one of my favorites in terms of story and gameplay. I'm glad that the story and gameplay aspect of the series is still the strong point.

    The last of VGR's five E3 recap videos is now up on YouTube! This time, Jacob and I recap Nintendo's conference. Once again, apologies that the audio quality is a bit subpar this time - Jacob accidentally recorded on the wrong microphone for videos 4 and 5. It should be back to normal next time!

    Matt Morgans got a reaction from kingpotato in Where do you think TES 6 will take place?   
    Just to address some points there:
    - Merchandising is a very different thing to in-game microtransactions (not to mention, likely handled by a totally different department at Bethesda), so that doesn't concern me at all looking to Elder Scrolls 6. Bethesda totally bungling their Fallout 76 merchandising didn't actually make the game itself any better or worse or affect its development.
    - I agree that Creation Club needs something of a redesign, but again, I'm not concerned about that at all looking ahead to Elder Scrolls 6. Mods are totally optional, and not official content.
    - While Fallout 76 was definitely not a huge success, Blades arguably was - even if players are unhappy, the game got over a million downloads and made over $500,000 in its first week alone. (https://www.vgr.com/elder-scrolls-blades-million-downloads-first-week/). That's a huge success by any metric. Whether they can sustain that success is another matter, but I suspect that they probably will - they've already made several changes based on player feedback.
    - Finally, I personally have no qualms with the Fallout 76 repair kits, and I agree with Bethesda that they don't constitute pay-to-win - here's an analysis of why (https://www.vgr.com/bethesda-pay-to-win-criticism-fallout-76-repair-kits/). I didn't see any widespread criticism of repair kits from people who were actually active players of the game, only from people on social media who jumped to conclusions due to misleading headlines. In fact, Bethesda promised to remove them if the kits were found to provide a tangible advantage.
