Wait, so you buy this version of Elder Scrolls: Online for 80€... and you only get to play for 30 days before you gotta pay up. Fuck that.

There is also an edition for 54€, but still massive bullshit. Pick EITHER a full-price entry, or subscription-based.... not BOTH!

Isn't that supposed to the only way you can play an imperial too? It all sounds terrible to me.

No offence, but thats what every MMO ever did up until wrath of the lichking was released, and many after that. Is it really something to get upset about?

yup apparently Imperial are a deluxe pre-order only thing

@Johnny Blaze While I am not well versed in MMOs, as a consumer that might be interested in this game, I find it very off-putting. I was considering getting into it, but now, there's not a snowball's chance in hell I will even touch it. The game market is waaaaay too crowded for them to pull anything like this. I can literally play anything I want, right now, for a much lower price. I might be wrong though. 

It will be interesting to observe how they do with this model. I will be observing from very far away, though.

And I am just saying, 80€ or 54€ is a lot of money in the first place. That should get me the game, instead I pay that for the privilege to try it, and will have to pump if I want to keep playing the game that I just bought for a lot of money.

I'm with Fredrik. Once upon a time it was common practice, but no more. I think the have overestimated their own product. I feel like the very cool trailers are doing one thing, and that's making me wish that they were working on a proper TES game.

Axefactor 180. We Get What We Deserve

I would love to change my username to DaySixEdition games.

Greetings fellow Axeheads.  I am once again compelled to write my thoughts in the same theme I wrote every other time in relation to the AxeFactor #180.  Our glorious Axelords Brent and Lorin again ponder as to why it is that our industry treats us like crap.  There is even a pole again for us to express what we feel about the situation.

The pole is missing the ''The industry treats us as we deserve.''   Which is what…

The Axe Factor 180: A Guy Who Knows That We Know

Grapple-parachute-traversal cannot save you from The Axe Factor! This week, we're checking in on Tales From the Borderlands, digging on some Just Cause 3 and pondering our experiences as a customer of the game industry.

This Week:

What We’re Watching:…

AC: Unity - The good, the bad and the ugly

The good:

- Graphics. It looks stunning and the amount of NPC's roaming through the city give the game a nice ambiance and make the city come to life like no other game has ever done before.

- Interiors. Much more inside buildings now. Fast short cuts through a house or complete missions taking place in a palace. Not every house is accessible but there is plenty of them to make it divers. 

- Riddles. Less hand holding this game. Riddles and murder cases to tease the…

Hatred is not about violence & here's why

PSA: Nothing I am saying is meant to be inflammatory or antagonizing. I am simply informing you the reader on my personal take of the Hatred controversy now that it has been several weeks and we can really take a step back to examine what the issue is.

 

The Hatred controversy is not about Violence in video games... Hatred is not about Grand Theft Auto, Hatred is not about Halo, heck Hatred is not about Boondock Saints or even Sons of Anarchy. Hatred is about Columbine, there I…

Winter is coming and so is the Game of Thrones game!

Last month the PR Rep for Tell Tale games was tweeted to ask about the new Game of Thrones game. This is what she responded with.

PR Reps love giving us only the tip.

Soon after that we got a teaser image.…
