I’m honestly becoming at a loss for words about what a greedy bunch of pukestains Square Enix has become. It’s growing more and more insulting by the day. We saw what happened with making Rise of the Tomb Raider a timed exclusive. I am almost certain that we’ll see how the new Hitman is a failure due to it being episodic and having always-online DRM. There was also that fun campaign disaster with the pre-orders of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided. We then get to see that the insanely-awesome-looking remake for Final Fantasy VII is also going to be episodic (think that will have always-online DRM too?). But today, I think that I’ve seen the most greedy thing yet. This company seems to be on a mission to not have the latest greedy thing be ceiling. They gotta bust on through to the other side. This time, it’s with the game I have been so eager for for so long, Final Fantasy XV.
I’ve already talked about their stupid bullshit having to do with a Season Pass. That’s retarded in its own right. But now it seems that this company just can’t help itself from fucking over their customers. Like how they are trying to milk people who have already given them $280 out of even more money. That’s right, if you pre-ordered the Collector’s Edition of the game, with all that comes with it, Square Enix wants you to fork over even more to get their shitty DLC that should have already been included in the fucking game.
Unbelievable. I just do not get the thought process behind this. It’s like, “hey, let’s bilk people of as much cash as possible! That’s sure to generate brand loyalty!” These people are paying you almost $300, you fucking assholes! The least you could do is not fuck them over in return and demand even more. I can honestly see only two reasons behind this sort of decision-making. First, they really are this greedy. If so, then I honestly don’t want to keep supporting them. Because we vote with our wallets. When people give in to bullshit stunts like this, it tells these companies that they can keep doing this. I’m poor. I don’t have much disposable income. Why should I pay extra for something that they refuse to put into their game already? Second, they have no choice but to charge extra. In which case, they should just stop making games. If this is what it takes to keep the company financially-solvent, then they really should just leave the industry. It can only get only get worse from here.
What is going on with this company? They keep looking to be on the verge of finally coming back, but they seem to be doing everything they possibly can to shoot themselves in the foot. It’s baffling. If someone can explain this to me, I’m all ears. No joke, I’d love a cogent explanation for all this madness. From where I’m sitting, this company seems eager to self-destruct, and remind me of a character in Loony Tunes. See if you can figure out which one it is.
