Yeah, I see your point that it's not far from the truth. And it probably could have been funnier (better?) if it was more parody and maybe less truth.
These map packs at $15 a pop for the CoD franchise are getting a little ridiculous too. If you want more than 8 MP maps, you end up forking over $75 (or more) for the game.
I am still waiting for a tactical shooter that has episodic content. It doesn't even have to have single player that is episodic necessarily, but if there was a quality tactical shooter that had a dedicated team to making new maps, even with a price, but the maps were released more regularly, I'd for sure give it a try.
You get bored of the 8 maps, then you get a pack that has 4 more.
, why not slowly release 1 at a time so that people can enjoy, and "master" the new maps as they're released.
"Our game shipped with 8 MP maps, we know it's been 10 months since it's released and you're bored with those maps, so here's another 26 all at once."
Their thinking is probably not to do that because they're affraid that people will only buy their good maps, and completely avoid their crap / unfun maps, thus, not being able to get 15 bucks for 3 crappy maps, and 1 good map.
Where are you Counter Strike 3?
