    Pretty hilarious that SFV’s bombed so hard that Capcom is trying to put ads in it to try and make more money back. Reeeeally hope this doesn’t set a precedent though.

    I remember in tmnt 2 on nes all the billboards were pizza hut and even in the instruction manual you could get some money off of pizza there, I can't remember how long it was but oh well.

    It's going to become a trend. Publishers are always looking for the next big thing and with microtransactions and lootboxes falling out of popularity, they are are going to start looking for something else.

    I was almost pissed then as I read that these can be turned off, I realized people are overreacting as usual.

    Always a new low with Capcom. Still less disgusting than Konami, I suppose.

    I agree. You pay all this money for a game and they still want more by cutting content, microtransactions, lootboxes, etc. The games themselves are often sent out with game-breaking glitches and bugs and the companies don't seem to care and chalk it up to another cost of doing business. You wonder why the F2P and indie markets are thriving now?

    As long as the ads are not game breaking or anything similar. I can live with these kind of things. And you get a reward so its not all that bad. Plus, Capcom is only advertising their CPT and other tourneys i believe.

    What is unforgivable is if during gameplay there is an ad (fuck video ads) that will hinder your gameplay any moment. Imagine playing a game with ads and the ad keeps popping up every finish of a round. Disgusting.

    I dislike seeing advertisements in games altogether. It's a necessary evil when it comes to mobile games (which are typically free and need to make money somehow), but seeing them in $60 console games is irritating and disempowering. You never really feel like you truly own the game with ads and other nonsense present.

    So, when are we finally going to have ads when on a phone call or video chat?

    You got it mixed up with Killer Instinct...3? Killer Instinct Xbox? Killer Instinct 2013???

    Killer Instinct 3. Love the game, but it'd be nice to separate the name from the original to prevent confusion. Either way, much better than SF5 IMO, even if the player-base is smaller because of:

    Same here, but there are still SOME games that give you your money's worth when it comes to DLC, from what I've heard, namely The Witcher 3 and a few others. Though, I must admit it'd be nice to have it all done on Day 1, but today's consoles may as well be glorified locked down PCs, with all of the "benefits" and "drawbacks" of such. Which is why I will laugh if they kill the Xbox brand in the next console generation by rebranding it as the WindowsBox!
