Whale spotting Anonymous 07/17/2017 (Mon) 06:51:58 [Preview] No. 10925
This is what 45,000 USD of digital game currency buys you.

>whale spotting

That's some interesting Jap slang. What the hell do you mean by whale spotting? That it's bloated with goodies you have to pry open or something? Anyhow it's why I've been against DLC for years, ever since the retarded Horse Armor in Oblivion.

A whale is someone with no brain who is willing to spend thousands of dollars for low chance of getting rare drops or collecting all The items. The p2w business model is not generally to get many people to pay a few bucks, but to get enough people playing that you net a few rich people with easilly addicted persoanlities. This obsessive catch will subsidize the game and provide most of the profit and greatly offset the tens of thousands of casual players who contribute nothing.

Hmmm, oddly enough I remember using this slang when I worked at a casino. The sentiment is mostly the same, except we're also making fun of the fact that the individual's wasting shitloads of money IN GENERAL not just via gambling like an idiot. Nice to see some slang is cross cultural to a certain extent.

Agh, sorry for weeabing hard.

Anyhow, is this the first Visual Novel with DLC bullshit? Or is Fate GO STRICTLY multiplayer focused?

>the p2w business model is not generally to get many people to pay a few bucks

Neither was the DLC model, or do you not remember the disc locked content controversies we had in the late 2000s and early 2010s? Specifically the ones with Crapcom, which weren't as bad as the shit Bioware did. Said thing is what gave birth to the season pass bullshit where a game's core content was cut out at random and sold as expansion pack dlcs.

Fate GO is not really a visual novel because the dialogue choices between battles are pointless and do nothing. The battles are more like Pokemon with a rock paper scissors dynamic to battles.

There is no real mutliplayer apart from being able to borrow servent allies from your friends. They should make it P2P, I would like to fight some people because the computer is predictable and stupid.

I have nothing to do now that I finished the second singularity, unless I wait for them to add more content. The English version ends about 3/8th of the way through the Japanese version.

There's no sense in grinding either because my team is almost maxed out, and there's no challenge until harder content comes out.

There's only 59 champs in English atm, and most of them are as good as the later ones. I wouldn't mind paying a few dollars for a guaranteed champ I want, like the drunken demon loli, but gatcha odds are ridiculous and there is no trading.

It's sad that games seem to be heading in this direction. Good luck finding a MMO that lacks this shit now and even non-mmo multiplayer games and a few single player games are adding it. The games that don't tend to have cut content they charge for.

Greed is ruining the industry.
