So if I want to play Overland, it will cost me $5/mo? No option to just buy the game? I don't see one in the App Store.
That's appalling and a very bad sign for the future of mobile gaming.
Smh, listen it???s this or an even further more rampant invasion of FTP garbage that completely eschews actual gameplay for waiting, timers and enough currency options to kill a horse.
For $5/month you get access to an increasingly larger selection of curated and high quality titles, many of which are 3-4 times the price to purchase on their console counterparts.
You???re literally balking at spending the price of a single game once a month for access to all these games. Seriously man, appalling? What???s appalling is the obviously needed trend of FTP because expecting customers to buy your games (swap in songs to see the comparison for music artists) at sometimes that amount or more has yielded developers nothing.
You could say the same about streaming music or tv/movie services. Yet they aren???t ???bad signs??? for mobile gaming.
Since I got Apple Arcade on Tuesday I???ve sank my teeth into quite a few games that have truly enraptured my attention more than the $30/40 game purchases. They???re easy to get into and if I don???t like something, I can just delete it and move on - I don???t have to bemoan my $5/10 because there is always something else to play.
You have to recognize the major issues with your stance on these things. Subscription services like this are much more consumer friendly than expecting your customers to shell out a fortune on ???mobile games???
