Survival adds the need to eat, sleep, and stay warm. It also adds additional challenges, such as no fast travel, reduced carry weight, and leveling up only when you sleep.

The world doesn't work like that, friend.Also, sarcasm isn't the lowest form of wit. People just say that when they can't think of a witty retort to sarcasm.



No, I can understand paying for a remaster/ re-release, at least in certain cases where the game has had some enhancements or improvements. That's fair enough (Though again often on PC people are given the re-release either free or vastly discounted, but let's not get in to a PC vs Consoles debate). But for a publisher to take a mod released for free years before they released their remaster and charge for it is just bollocks. No entitlement there, it's just a scumbag move.

The fact that any DLC in this game, a remaster/re-release of a 5 year old game, will be charged at any point is ludicrous.

Paid mod that steals its ideas from a free one, Bethesda need to stop with the paid mods

You make no sense. Skyrim isn't free and mods are minimal effort and have been freely available for years. I bet Creation club was a Zenimaz board meeting idea on how to milk a dead cow for a decade instead of releasing the next Elder Scrolls.

That sounds like a real ballache.

Depends if you want a new challenge I guess.

If you just want trophies, or want the story without much effort, it's not for you.

I just shared this here when I spotted it. I've got enough of the normal game to do. :-p

DLC is everywhere; it's an optional extra like many other trades. I don't understand why people get their knickers in a twist when game companies find different ways to earn money.

Consumers pay for what it says on the tin (or case). If a company releases free DLC, awesome. If they charge for it, people shouldn't feel like they somehow deserve this thing that was never promised.

Sarcasm really is the lowest form of wit. If you want to pay £40 for a game, another £15 for the DLC, then £40 when they re-release it a few years later, then god knows how much on mods that used to (and in many cases on PC still are) free, then you batter in friend. Everyone will think you're a mug, and you'll be encouraging publishers to keep bending us over and charging us for their "Hard work" in finding popular mods available for free and adapting and monetising them. Personally I'll just stick to buying games from publishers that put in a bit of effort once in a while, rather than just re-releasing a five year old game 3 times in a year, then charging for additional content.

No, I can understand paying for a remaster/ re-release, at least in certain cases where the game has had some enhancements or improvements. That's fair enough (Though again often on PC people are given the re-release either free or vastly discounted, but let's not get in to a PC vs Consoles debate). But for a publisher to take a mod released for free years before they released their remaster and charge for it is just bollocks. No entitlement there, it's just a scumbag move.

Equally, Bethesda never had to include free mods in the first place. But they did, and they're still there.

according to behesda, it's not free to keep forever if 'bought' in the first week.

you get a 7 day trial then have to pay for it.

Yes you do point out that what they're doing with this particular creation club add on isn't a nice move. which is right, though wouldn't be surprised if this is having input from the guy behind the frostbite mod. they're making it an official (optional) part of the game. it's handled in house & it's supposed to end up as an official high quality version. that's localised & compatible with trophies/achievements. someone like me for example wouldn't touch mods because they disable trophies, so it's not terrible to offer an official version of a mod. not that it interests me in the slightest.

far more expesnsive than it should be too. it's quality remains to be seen.

he's right that your prior comments make it sound like you think every piece of content released for older games should be free.

A "scumbag move" because you're annoyed they'll eventually charge for a mod that wasn't promised.

"Someone else did something similar before" is not an excuse to not release something.

The age of the game is also completely irrelevant. Minecraft has been going years, still charging for new skin packs, etc.

It's up to developers to find ways to earn money, and it's up to gamers to decide if they want to buy it or not.
