EDIT: I'm all for Jason and people in general formulating their own opinions on AC Odyssey's microtransactions. Some won't find it all that intrusive, others will, fine. But Jason derogatorily generalizing YouTubers and assuming their intentions because perspectives differs is in very poor taste. Show your support on Patreon.com/YongYea or PayPal.me/YongYea! It's completely optional, but even $1 a month contribution will go a long way. Also, follow me on Twitter.com/YongYea for the latest updates.

@G I hate to tell you this, but you're the idiot here and he's pretty spot on, I dunno where you're getting your insights but they are really dumb- You're not understanding the damage that kotaku and other "journalists" do and I'm 110% sure they are the ones greedy developers go to to try and make fluff pieces defending loot boxes, EA and other subjects which shouldn't ever be defended. Edit: also I find your oppinion on microtransactions too lenient if not slightly slimy.

I've not had to once use an exp boost. But I'm not naive enough to believe that everyone has had the same experience as I have. Gamers don't all play the game the same. So to defend microtransactions just because he hasn't had to use them is just bullshit. I still refuse to even pay for microtransactions because the more we let developers get away with it. The worse it will become.

Kotaku, Rock Paper Shotgun are already in a blacklist after some really unacceptable behaviour. They could join any evil group for all I care. They are burned.

I view XP boosters that you can pay for as a sign that a dev knows they made a game's farming so boring, the only way to keep players into it is offering boosts. This kills me because, once upon a time, I would have gladly died on the hill of defending Assassin's Creed.

Here’s an idea: get rid of the micro transactions and raise the price of the game, not $10 but $5. A $65 game would not draw scoffs & eye rolls - and since more than half the customers aren’t purchasing their micro transaction packs anyway, Ubisoft would make out even better. And it wouldn’t hurt their reputation or cause them to lose potential gamers.

02:11 sorry, I lost ya at this point. Jim Sterling is a shadow of his former self these days and exists purely to get twisted pleasure from deliberate controversial troll bait videos, over actual gaming news and facts. I don't agree with microtransations but Kotaku man is right in the sense that they're optional and aren't the end of the world like all the Gen Z gamer kids are crying about.
Kolink Battler (1 day ago)
I'm pretty much in agreement here. Jason Schreier can say Assassin's Creed Odyssey's microtransactions aren't predatory or hinder the game in any way. That's honestly fine and maybe I'd even agree with him a bit (idk, I haven't played it nor am I ready to.) But how much they affect players IS a case by case basis and the number of people who feel compelled to buy XP boosters just to get through the game's story is not 0. And it really does fight with Jason's claim that he'd like to have a nuanced conversation about microtransactions when he himself is saying that people who have legitimate issues with the game on that front are just looking to get clicks. Few will argue that AC:O is a terrible game because of these microtransactions but I think we can all agree even fewer would argue that it wouldn't make the game better for all parties if XP boosters were gone entirely and the player was allowed to play through the story at their own pace.

I can understand, I don’t like it, but I can understand why micro transactions exist in multiplayer games. But it’s just the WORST when single player games have them. It’s not like they needed the xp boosters in the game. Past assassins creed didn’t need them. My favourite in the whole series is the second game which I played as a kid. Slowly but surely I feel like since (AC2/brotherhood spoiler) Desmond died the series just was never as interesting or good to me.
Remember when game ''journos'' claimed gamers were dead? LOL What they did not know was that it was their ass that was rotting.

They are a cancer and are every bit as predatory and exploitative as they seem. You make a game where stuff is level gated and make everyone do, according to the 4 or 5 reviews I’ve watched, a ton of BORING side quests. That is Ubisoft lulling you with shitty side quests that people hate so you just say “Fuck it” buy the boosters and blast through so you can get back to the story. Not everyone is a completionist and Ubisoft is preying on those that aren’t.

What an obnxious editor. I believe most gamers are not fully against micro transactions. They just want the items sold not to give unfair advantages and cost a bomb on top of any retail box price. Gamers have a reasonable side as well. Box sold for $60 and each cosmetic item costs $40? That is freaking madness.

A cancer is exactly what micro transactions are to the industry. They're that harmless looking dark bump on your shoulder that you dismiss because " it doesn't hurt" or "it's just a small and primarily unnoticeable" . Then one day you discover the mole was a malignant melanoma that's deceptively spread throughout your entire body while you were ignoring it.

Schreier is a scumbag with about as much journalistic integrity as your average tabloid reporter. This idiot thrives on drama, or creating it if none exists. Like every SJW out there, he claims to be doing it for the good of the industry. But make no mistake, he's in it for the money, and to prop up his enormous ego. It's an insult that this hobby that we all love has provided a source of income for this shitbag. Fuck him. Further reading: http://deepfreeze.it/journo.php?j=jason_schreier

I dislike microtransactions as much as the next guy, but to be honest I never even knew or felt I needed an XP boost. AC has changed into an RPG, leveling up is what makes RPGs fun. If anything they shouldnt even be selling the XP boost not because its exploitative, but rather because its an RPG with a balanced leveling system.
Vaerum (3 days ago)
If it's gotten to that point where you're willing to pay for exp boosts in a single player game, why not just use console commands, cheats, or mods to level your character?
Robert Perrotto (3 days ago)
bottom line up front - if you are going to charge 60+ American dollars for a game, there damn well should NOT be any paid content of any kind upon release - also - 10 hour + requirement for paid additional content - this is never about the player or the Dev, its the publishers cash grab, and it IS predatory.

Fact. Cheat engine will always be an option. You want more xp, bam got that.. premi currency, bam got that.. Cheat engine on a single player that wants you to pay to progress faster is easy to hack. -PC Master Race.
Mr.Machina (3 days ago)
Small thought about micro transactions... Isn't the whole point of playing a game is, ya know, actually playing it and seeing how powerful (or how much progress) you make? Because even in older games, when ever I use a cheat code, or an exploit, I feel like I skipped a part of the game I was ment to enjoy, I see micro transactions exactly the same, only I'm being cheated out of my money, so not only am I missing out on the game, I'm paying for it, literally. I don't usually comment this type of stuff (because half the time I don't know what I'm talking about) but I just can't agree with people who protect micro transactions.
Ethan Morgan (3 days ago)
Personally i did not like Odyssey it did not feel like an AC game and the costumes were greek soldeir rather then assassins basically cutting the robes that i loved in the game and getting rid of the hidden blade. I think Ubisoft will drive away the original fanbase and make AC unrecognizable

Personally I had no problems with AC odysseys progression. I'm taking a bit of a break from the game but from what I've seen I'm about 60 or so % done with main story...and I'm max level and tier 1 mercenary and I've taken down almost all of the main targets that don't require story progression to meet,I'm the god of the arena,I've taken down all of the major challenges including 4 special bosses and all that junk. Now if I recall correctly if I wasn't the type of guy who completely ditches the main story in games like these for a long time I should be lvl35 not 50 at this point in the game,and I'm not using any level boosters. Also I bought the game for 47 instead of 60 euros since ubisoft was offering a discount with little bit of uplay points

TheAsmodeus2012 (3 days ago)
You can see what's really bothering the schmuck writing this apologetics article and the devs who prompted him to write it, if you just replace the term 'Youtubers' with 'The Public'. Also, I'm with Jim Sterling in telling people who say they didn't feel compelled to use the microtransactions that they should realize that this only means that it wasn't their particular compulsions the loot-boxes were designed to exploit. Congratulations, the bullet missed you. But it's aimed to hit something and it does. If someone starts shooting up the room around you but you remain untouched, are you still ok with all that just because you didn't happen to be a target? Do you look around at the casualties and say "well *I* didn't get shot, so fuck their problems.' If you do, then you're a sociopath and have no business in a discussion of morality and ethics in the first fucking place anyway, so don't expect to receive anything for response but scorn.

I have a problem with them being called micro-transactions. It implies that they are really small amounts, when some are actually quite expensive. If you pay for DLC on some games, you practically double the price of the game.

Haven't played it but for me the line is whether you're forced into boring, repetitive tasks in order to proceed. If you have to do some side missions but those side missions are interesting content, well then that's just part of the game. If you have to boring filler that they've obviously thrown in there just pad the game and sell exp boosts, that's not OK. As for Kotaku, never forgave them for the coverage of GW2 and Jessica Price so I don't read anything they publish anymore. As someone whose very middle/moderate, I find their views almost radical at times.

YongYea, those tweets are certainly NOT lashing out, they were fairly benign, if you think they are direct condemnation, you have a super thin skin... just like you do not have to agree with him, he does not have to agree with you, and both of you have points. Want to pay $120-$150 up front for every standard edition AAA game? That is what a world without secondary revenue streams would be like. Microtransactions, or super-high upfront cost, there is the choice for your minority.
DarthKato (4 days ago)
Sounds like he is trying to defend the hand that feeds him. lol Anyone that would stop and think about it, knows that Microtransactions have no place in single-Player games. No game, to my knowledge, has ever been improved by implementing them. They are there to feed on a group of people that cannot help themselves and will spend a fortune on getting the full experience of a game.And DLC isn't much better. I remember playing Batman: Arkham Knight, and looked at all the damn DLC that game had. It was frigging ridiculous. Why couldn't that stuff be put in the main game, instead of being cut out? Instead, I get stuck with feeling like I got cheated out of the "Full Experience", because I didn't pay another $30 on fucking DLC(There are some exceptions when it comes to DLC, I know. Like with major expansions(The Witcher 3's DLC comes to mind), but the little stuff is just bullshit.)

I must spend a fraction of what I spend on a game I bought for a console I bought. If it's "optional" to spend money then wouldn't that mean only idiots would spend that money? Micro transactions are abusive. Even at a dollar it's exploitative; I spend 1/60th of the game I just bought for nothing near the value. Free money is all I see.

The MTX in Odyssey are not even required. I hate MTX, but Oddysey is a easy game in terms of leveling. It's a adventure, the game isn't meant to be beat in 3 days. It has some nice quest. I normally wouldn't defend ubisoft, but here I have to.

You see, you Gamers have FINALLY! Figured out what corporation pigs have been doing for awhile now & you see, the share holders (the people that pay me) aren't too happy about it. So they get people like me, some low life has been nobody masquerading as a Game Journalist to try to convince you why you are wrong about Microtransactions, after all the corporations could do it but that would be bad PR & heck, I'm a low life with no soul so HECK I'll do it, after all, the apple doesn't fall far from the corporation pig trough. So how about some of those Microtransactions? *OINK OINK.* "

I have played 48hrs of Assassins Creed Odyssey, so far I haven’t noticed a need for a XP booster. I feel like just by exploring and Syncing view points and doing random quests from time to time, I had all the XP I needed move right along. I do explore a lot, but isn’t that what Assassins Creed “Odyssey” is all about? I play on Exploration Mode, HUD on minimal, and Normal difficulty. Also I want to say..I don’t think Microtransacions should be in any single player paid game. But didn’t see the grind here.

MrEffectfilms (5 days ago)
I think you're right in that it all depends on the kind of gamer you are. I'm a huge RPG fan and so playing side quests and just side activity in general in preparation for a story quest that I'm not yet ready for is nothing new to me and in fact I quite enjoy that, It makes me feel like I'm training for something greater and slowly becoming more powerful. But I also understand that a lot of people dont like that style of play and so for them I can understand why the XP boosters might seem necessary, but its still an option that you don't have to do if you don't want to. Best example I can think of is Warframe, now yes it is free to play but it too has mtx and also can be played without spending a penny if you're willing to grind so I think it's a fair comparison. You can just buy boosters in Warframe just like you can in Odessy and while nothing is level gated if you try to do missions meant for players who are MR12 and you're only MR3 you're gonna get your ass handed to you. For people who don't have the time or patience for the grinding and leveling they have the option to buy weapons, frames, and boosters if they want. Odessy seems to work the same way and I don't see the problem, if it was setup so anyone could just use the boosters without penalty that would be game breaking.

Fuck Kotaku, industry fucking shrills. Odyssey is a shit show of microtransactions, trying to justify an over $120 game. Fuck this shit system, SINGLE PLAYER GAMES NEVER EVER EVER EVER REQUIRE MICROTRANSACTIONS. THEY ARE A CANCER IN MULTIPLAYER AND WILL DESTROY ALL GAMING EVERYWHERE.
Andrew Knoll (4 days ago)
I know for some reason you like this guy. This just proves he doesn't care about us gamers. He leaks games before there out which is not a good thing. Jason exploits devs to make money. Now he is defending micro transactions. Micro transactions are bad business. Why should we have to pay more money after we already bought the game? Atleast dlc brings new content these micro transactions are created to expliot us. I haven't played this newest assassin's creed mainly because it's strays so far from the lore it is barely assassin's creed. However, it does look very enjoyable and probably will get it eventually. As a fan since assassin's creeds inception that's a complement. Honestly I thought origins was the best assassin's creed since the assassins creed 3. I'll get this one after red dead redemption 2 comes out. Still all Micro transactions are not good unless the game is free to play.
ACTAN0NVERBA (5 days ago)
I hate the whole lootbox, pay to win or even just microtransactions - However the flow and pacing of the game for me personally, was fine without XP boost - It is however so fucking tiring that the cool skins and weapons are locked behind a paywall, and often at sickingly steep prices... I noticed they removed all the cool skins for the horse, unlike in origins where there were plenty cool free skins thru progression. A full priced game should not be lacking in anything tho, and I am sick of all these "smart" ways of milking the customer. We can all thank EA, they started this back in 2009 with Uefa Champions league FUT like packages.
MREric083 (5 days ago)
I have now a days completely stopped listening to Critics in every medium. They for the most part don't put the heart into it anymore because they have to review or play/watch soo much that it can be boring or annoying. A game that is $60 shouldn't have any kind of micro-transactions and the only way I put up with them is in Free to Play games because any money I spend wouldn't have gone to waste. But if i'm spending $60 on a game and spending more then I might as well be playing Destiny or Call of duty and buying the DLCs instead just to get the full experience. I just wish this kind of thing will just fade away and we can start being listened to and get the kind of games we want.. Features we want and to be able to relax and play games to have fun.

Jim Sterling uploaded a brutal rebuke in today's Jimquisition. I get my gaming news from this channel and Jim's channel. Old games media is dead. They'll run back and hide behind Gamergate or something, and we're all sexist pigs for calling them out, etc, but they're dead media trying desperately to cling to old revenue models.

I find it hard to criticise people I respect but at times they too are wrong and oh my god he is wrong on this occasion. I do think he is using this to basically 'have a go' at his competition. YouTubers will eventually make his role redundant after all. Although I do agree with him in regards to certain YouTubers having video opinions to get views. That is a real thing. Not everyone on Youtube is honest.

There's a difference between microtransactions and loot boxes. I agree with him things are getting way out of hand and the people complaining over nothing is becoming the real cancer. To believe that a game that has you grind is doing it on purpose to make you spend money shows how stupid and lazy people have gotten. I don't remember people crying about Final Fantasy 7 being too grindy or Batman Arkham series being too grindy to 100% the game. People are really becoming way too stupid and lazy they're probably all fat too.

I mean they bitch because they skip content and now the game is level gated and then bitch because they aren't a high enough level.

Don't blame publishers putting in microstransactions. They are businesses looking to get money. I blame dipshit gamers who spend money on them. If people stopped buying them, the publishers would realize it wasn't cost effective to put in and stop offering them. And AC Odyssey's microstransactions are benign as fuck. Haven't even opened the menu for them since I started playing the game.
