Grimoire Cards: The Next Phase In The Incomplete Gaming Experience

     Wow. You actually did it!
To be honest, I have no idea how many people will actually do what you did; that is experience the annoying marketing metaphor set forth by me via my "Destiny game review" on Youtube to show how annoying it is to have to go from one outlet to the next just to get a description that should have been given to you as part of the package from the initial outlet. But let me thank you for taking the time to fully experience my point/private joke as I have found that sometimes, people need an example blatantly shoved in their face to fully grasp the absurdity of a situation. Click the jump to read what I think of Destiny's Grimoire cards...


   
      You see, over the next couple days, I will be checking my Adsense to see how many people will come to this website due to my "Destiny game review". And where as I will probably get a couple dollars due to traffic from supportive/curious fans such as yourself, the fact remains that on most any given business website...say like Bungie.net; web traffic = money. In one way, shape, or form. Whether it be from user traffic, app downloads, or created user accounts. Traffic is $good$. And so therein lies the point. Bungie will make money not only in "Destiny" game sales, but also in website traffic from the millions of people wanting to read content they have unlocked in the game in the form of these grimoires. Keep in mind this will not be a one time occurrence. Any new grimoires that are unlocked will require the player to check back on Bungie's website if they want to read what it has to say. One can't help but see dollar signs in the eyes of the Bungie "higher ups" at the thought of the revenue this will bring. This doesn't even factor in the 2 DLC packages slated for release in the coming months. That's right folks; 3 flowing rivers of cash from 1 under developed game. After all, why sell 1 solid game for $60 when you can sell 1 incomplete FPS game for $60 that will sell from the Bungie name alone, then bathe in the honey that is web traffic revenue and milk more cash from your fans from that DLC they think they need simply to have what their parents used to call a "full game experience"? Welcome to the modern age in game marketing!

  2. Just do what Bethesda did with the fallout and elder scrolls series and I bet people wouldn't be as mad about the story as they are bungie

  4. I am sick and tired of the constant trend of incomplete, unfinished, and/or chopped-up DLC in AAA games.

  8. (Sorry, I wish there was an edit function!) I was expecting a lot more people here :P. Anyway, I don't get why they need to earn revenue from both the game itself and the website. It's as if the hype train wasn't packed enough for them to earn money! =D

  10. Hi Jeremy,
    First of all would like to say that I love your videos and I find them really relate-able to my taste. Also thanks for helping me watch great movies haha. Secondly, it would be really, really cool if you could tell us your top ten or awesometacular movies pre 2010 e.g. 2009, 2008, 2007, 90s, 80s etc as I want to get into watching older movies and your taste in movies have been bang on for me. I understand that you can't do them all in vlog form so on your blog would be equally as awesome, and I know this is a big ask, but it would be really amazing to hear your opinions and to be able to watch some awesome movies for me. Even if you can't do it, thank you so much for reading my comment (punches the screen haha)

    Quick Question: If I use adblock do you still get money from the hit? Just curious. Thanks.

  13. Hopefully Bungie makes an update that actually puts the Grimoire in the game. I refuse to get out off my system ruining my game experience to jump on my computer to read up on the world. It's stupid

    One of the reasons why I love Final Fantasy XIII was the data log, I honestly can spend hours reading it. If you make an interesting world I'm in. But for me I better still be in that world when I'm reading up on it.

  22. Jeremy, you owe it to yourself to check out Stranger Things, Netflix series.
    A kaleidoscope of 80s movies like E.T.,Goonies,Stand by Me and Firestarter to name a few, all influenced to a new story that is very fun.
    To add to the effect, it takes place in early 1980s and most every effect is practical.
    I promise you, it's sooo much fun!

    Enjoy....
