Well, this is the very same people that thought stripping the game from the Chaos faction to resell it as DLC was a good idea.

Fumbling the name for it shouldn't be surprising. Yet it is, which makes Khorne even more mad.

Alexander Sullivan

So your defense of it, is that they remove an aspect of a game in order to lower the rating to appeal to the largest group of people regardless of how it affects the game?

Wew, yeah sure showed me.

Gabriel Parker

Doesnt it have Denuvo going on anyway meaning it's hard as fuck to crack?

Noah Thompson
Noah Thompson

They took out a feature of the game on purpose, that's what you are saying.
The reason is actually fairly logical (but still stupid) however it doesn't change that it was removed intentionaly.

And then there's this. DLC is rated differently than the game since it's considered it's own content. This DLC could be rated 18+ and it wouldn't affect the base game.
Better yet, they could have made this DLC for free, since it's a feature they removed from the game.

You see all those Visual Novels in Steam? Many have lewd shit that would push them above 18+ ratings but they still manage to be published because they make a patch to add that content and give it on their site for free.

You know you're a shit company when Visual Novels handle adult content better than you do.

Liam Anderson
Liam Anderson

Ever notice how any game not cracked is widely noted on here as shit?

Seriously this should of been base in the game in the first place. It's fucking Warhammer it needs blood,gore, fucking crazy ass shit with some poor fuckers head exploding into a pulpy bloody mess that causes nearby allies to freak out. I'm talking 80's-90's OVA anime levels of blood and carnage.

Aiden Sullivan

Zachary Green

Except it wasn't removed, they just never made it in the first place. If they'd just removed it they would have been selling it from day one since the forums were full of retards clamoring for it. If they were holding it back they would have held it for an actually good release time instead of in the middle of the summer sale where all the impulsive people won't see it buried under all the cheap shit on the front page of steam.

Cooper Baker
Cooper Baker

wew

Also, "it was never made in the first place" is just you saying "yes, I'm naive like that".
It's a Warhammer game, blood and gore is staple to it. Every other game features it. It's much more likely it was part of the game but the rating board warned them that it would make the game R or M rated so it was cut down.

I'd still buy it that they intended to make an actual expansion with the Chaos faction and include this there. However that expansion is probably still in the works and would take a while to come. It's very likely that the game isn't selling as much as they wanted and they think this would get people to buy the game, so they are releasing it now instead of waiting for the full expansion.

all the impulsive people won't see it
All the impulsive people will see it and think "it's just 2,5$. not much compared to everything else I'm seeing being sold".
Your failure to understand how marketing works does not excuse the company.

you could just admit that you're talking shit out of your ass. Or are you going to go full /pol on me and claim some seekrit dev shekel grab conspiracy

Parker Clark
Parker Clark

every other game features it
Except Dawn of War, the most popular Warhammer videogame series, where it would actually make sense for it to be since it isn't played at a level of zoom where gore and dismemberment is impossible to see anyway. Hell, one of the biggest things people bashed the last couple Total War games for was over emphasis on fancy looking fights between individual soldiers and that's literally all this adds and now all of a sudden people are insisting that it's a core component of the game and removing it is sacrilege?

And no, impulsive people won't see it at all because they'd have to already be on the total warhammer store page to see it and they won't be going to that one during the sale because it's the only game in the franchise with no discount. This week is literally the worst possible time they could pick to release it.

a better one would be you go to the dentist for a crown, they show you a picture of a flat top crown and you say "deal, give me that" then a month later they say "we finally got some tools that can reshape that crown into a proper tooth" and you say "fucking kike shit, you shoulda gave me to begin" and they say "we really couldn't until now"

Samuel Scott
Samuel Scott

Except they could, its a fucking texture.
Its not something that takes a lot of effort.
Its not like we have past games to compare it with that had blood before.
Its not like in a wargame you don't expect blood in war, an activity that is usually one by one side depleting the others side body of the vital liquid.

The excuse they cut it out for ratings is bullshit.
This is a WAR GAME, not bible adventure.
You expect blood, if they had to take a higher rating then you deal with that instead of removing an aspect of your game to appeal to a larger audience.
Which is similar to wanting water downed aspects, or X for awesome, chasing the COD audience.

Justin Collins

except theres also dismemberment. its not just slap a couple textures on and call it a day.

Mister, I don't know how to tell you this any simpler…
Notice that at no point in that post does the Dev deny it was already a feature in the game that they cutted down. They don't even tell you when they started working on it, just they have been working hard on it since release.
But guess what? Increasing the resolution or adding another animation is also "working on it".

I'm not even saying it's a nickel&dime scheme ala Paradox and their "Portrait DLC".

It was a feature that was part of the base game.
Rating board threatneded with high rating, so it was put on the backside.
They wanted to release it in an expansion all together.
Sales aren't good, they need content NOW to atract people.
So they pick the single biggest complaint people have AND that they can "fix" and put it up for sales.
It's just marketing, user. No sekrit cabal needed.

What's more, this can even just be to probe the audience. See how many people bought this, how many just bought the game and this tells them how many actually care about blood&gore and re-directs future efforts in developing the game.

The fuck are you talking about? Dawn of War, both the first and the second feature tons of gore and blood all over the fucking place. The first one even has piles of corpses (that don't last forever, sadly) after a fight but both are pretty bloody by the base game.
Way to out yourself, you retard…

Lucas Collins
Lucas Collins

Oh yeah, they were just so full of blood and gore that they never had to go and release a blood pack for them.

Luis Roberts

If they wanted to take out a feature to appease the ratings people, they still could have made it free for people. There's no excuse for making people pay for something that should have been in the core game.

Daniel Moore
Daniel Moore

Everything would have been planned long before launch of the game. They deliberately left this shit out.

but we worked on it after launch
This is a shit excuse. Basically they're saying they can release an incomplete game at full price and nobody can say shit when they charge extra for things they make after launch.

Dominic Bailey

Parker Lewis

ohhh so now because it was planned to be worked on after release this counts as cut? wanting to work on other major parts of the game first isn't important? just release some hot mess of half done features because you wanted everything now? manpower limitations be damned?

Thomas Cox
Thomas Cox

That makes no sense, you're basically saying if devs intend to ever add anything to a game they should charge less for whatever they've made.

Bentley Miller

The difference here is that they already had blood and gore in the base game:
youtube.com/watch?v=jQymeTH5GgU

And even in the first game:
youtube.com/watch?v=GErWPKxEA4M

That content pack was released for Halloween and did not simply added something that wasn't even there, it improved part of the content that was already there. It was also released much after the base game as well.
Oranges and Apples, user…

Julian Russell
Julian Russell

because it was planned to be worked on after release this counts as cut?
No. Because they removed a feature before releasing the game that they are now working and releasing with it's own for a price, that's why it counts as a cut.

Your entire post sounds like a good excuse for Early Acess, release games at half price and it's perfectly okay because all the buggy content is still being developed anyway, you wouldn't want to play it. Except even Early Acess has the decency of giving you a lower price for an unfinished product, something this game didn't do.

Or charge less for the base game since it's missing a feature they cut out on purpose.

In fact, I still am not sure what's your story here guys… Did they cut it out because of the board rating or they just didn't think about this at all before the game being released? Gotta get your story straight here…

Christopher Thomas
Christopher Thomas

oranges and apples
Says the guy who started the whole thing comparing Total War to Visual Novels.
Also, can't help but notice there's not actually any gore or dismemberment in any of those sync kills, just the same low quality blood particle effect in every single one. I thought Warhammer games have always had gore?

Matthew Edwards

William Jones

go to car dealership
buy brand new car
engine only has two cylinders despite being advertised as a V8
all four wheels are donuts
can't put the car in neutral
complain to the dealer that I've been scammed
a few other customers at the dealership overhear me complaining
one approaches me and says "Just take it to a mechanic, their mods will fix it up. This is a really good car you're just demanding too much"
needed a car badly and this was the only kind available, so I leave with it
mechanic mods the tires - they're not great but at least they're not donuts now
car still drives like ass only having two cylinders
after two months the dealership finally calls and says they have a fix for the engine problem
they glue 6 cylinders onto the engine and declare that now I have what I paid for
they then slash all four of my tires saying that they were incompatible with the free engine upgrade
offer to sell me four different tires so I can get the complete car experience
buy the tires so I can get back home
car drives even worse than before, the six glued cylinders just get in the way and dont do anything
car breaks down on the drive home
someone pulls over, rolls down their window and asks what's the problem
tell them the car broke down and complain that it's a piece of shit
"Well mine works" they say before driving off
fuck it
leave car behind and walk home
post about the horrible experience with that car and the dealership on an online car forum
everyone is defending the dealership
"It takes a lot of time and effort to manufacture a car, you can't expect it to have everything"
"why do you even need to put the car in neutral? You only ever go forward, backward, or stop. Neutral is just for the 'hardcore' drivers to feel good about themselves. I'm glad they removed that archaic feature"
"You got eight cylinders stop being so entitled"
"It's a bad car? Well how many cars have you made?"

I compared how those two types of games handled Adult Content.
Stuff that would raise the Rating of the game higher than they want.

And visual novels handle it better by keeping everything in a free patch in their site, letting them release a PG game that can be raised to M or R for free if the user wants.
Meanwhile, TW:Warhammer asks you for extra cash for that.

I thought Warhammer games have always had gore
Didn't said it was good gore, did I? :^)
Besides, older games. Dismenberment isn't as easy to do unless you want the body parts to always move in the same exact specific way everytime they are cut. Making them extra entities and using the physics engine was beyong what the first Dawn of War could do.

I actually have fun modding my games and I can stay up to 3 days before I have one fully modded to my tastes. Doesn't mean the game can be released like shit just because I can have fun fixing it later.

Besides, remind me again how much did the game cost? Was it for sale at 5 bucks because they know it's gonna be fixed later with DLC or mods? Yeah…

this thread

I cant really see if people's just shitposting or genuinely defending this
It's a war game from a particurally violent franchise, why the hell did they add blood as a dlc??? If some people didnt like it, why not make it optional on the options menu or something?

Other total war games could pass without blood since the units are small and they're just slashing each other (I think they didnt have blood, at least on rome and medieval) but on this one you have demons, undeads and huge creatures capable of drawing a shower of blood with each of their blows. This, along with the chaos dlc, is just them being greedy

That said, at least it's just 2.5€. It's 2.5€ too expensive, but at least it's not 5, 10 or even 20

Parker Edwards
Parker Edwards

So your point is that the only people that should buy the game or the DLC are "game enthusiasts"?
I wonder what "game enthusiasts" have different from regular people that want to play videogames. Bigger wallets?
Because if we want to use that analogy, videogame players are everyone that buys and drives a car, with car enthusiasts actually being a minority of those.

It wouldn't actually be so bad if it was indeed released as a full expansion with an entirely new faction.
Maybe make it the chaos faction, worshipers of the Blood God. I was actually looking by the feature list there looking for a single unit or faction to justify this.
But instead, it's just SFX sold for a price, while the Chaos Warriors are sold as a "race pack" for 7,50$.

They could have bundled the two things together for the same price and I'm sure nobody would care as much.
But instead, the game isn't being talked about or bought at all, they are getting desperate and this shit had to be released sooner than they wanted…
Denuvo was a mistake.
