Gaming is something being cheap is forever, and every game, controller and system has to be forged at certain prices forever.
Everything else in life from food, homes, cars, a pair of jeans, cellhpones, coffees and lattes can be increased in pricing and nobody cares.
But a game has to be $60 US, and consoles have this mystical $400 price barrier.
I remember a Honda Civic in Canada could be bought for $14,000. I bought one long time ago where it was $18,000 (mid model LX automatic). Checking their website now, an LX automatic is about $24,000. So in about 20 years or so, a Civic has gone up around $10,000. I'm sure the US has seen similar price increases in 20 years.
Yet a video game still has to be $60 US and a console no more than $400 or sales drop like a rock.
I already have The Surge from a PSN pricing glitch a while back where it was accidentally free for a short time. Honestly didn't care for it though.
While I'll "purchase" Conan Exiles, I don't think I'll care for it much either as it's mainly a MP game with a SP campaign that I suspect is really just tacked on in an attempt to get more anti-MP people (like me) playing it.
I buy so many freaking PS4 games that I'm to a point where I've already bought anything I really care about and am just waiting for new games to be released that I might like. The "games" category of my PS4 library says 383 games. I've always been kind of obsessive like that.
I've platined Lords of the Fallen, so The Surge is great for me.
(I made the mistake of trying to beat Lords of the Fallen game++. That didn't scale well. It would take me forever to go through a boss.)
I was a big fan of the surge. It is a fairly competent sci-fi dark souls clone with mech exoskeletons. I’ve played it through 2-3 times. I actually downloaded it again when it was announced as a free game in hopes that the dlc will be discounted.
I started Playing Conan Exiles and I have a few questions, but I don't want to start a new thread for that!
The server system confuses me.
1. How do I save my character. I logged out of the official server I was playing, and upon returning to the game, there was not hint or list of the server I've last played on, or my character. Do I have to make a new one every time i jump on an online game?
2. Are there any official servers that allow nudity? There is not way to tell from the server list, and from what I've seen, the only ones that allow it are custom servers with ridiculous modifiers. I want to play the game with Vanila Settings and full nudity..
3. Can you suggest any good servers?
4. There seems to be a bug with my character's body disappearing when I get to closse. It's as easy to trigger as attempting to change my character's name in the character creation where the camera zooms on his/her label. It always triggers. Anyone alse has this?
Needless to say, my edition is the EU PS4 edition recently given on plus.
