      Boomers will never understand because they got no shine, no fire in there eyes no more
      I've legit caused damage to public and private property over the mental anguish of not having Peely and the realization that i never will, this is how much i love this fricking game
      I don't even care about the alternate Peely skins, i'm only settling for the real thing

        I'll never care so much about a comsetic, but I agree with the rest. I'm 32 and 90% of my peers would rather shut themselves at home alone and depressed and just stay there until they die. They have no desire to improve, they do not seek happines and they certainly do not have any passion about absolutely anything. Every time I ask them to go out or to do something stupid they'd rather do nothing and tell me it's stupid to do something stupid. Little do people know that doing things people think are stupid is just aimless passion.

          Girlfriends, anon. Or wives. They suck the fun out of life, they require you spend all your time doing boring soulless things with them and leave no more time for friends. I used to have friends. Once I got a girlfriend I lost them all because she demands all my time and refuses to have hobbies or interests of her own.

      FOMO has (mostly) the opposite effect for me, if a game has it in any capacity and I wasn't there from launch so that I could autistically collect everything there ever was to collect, I have precisely zero interest in the game and I'll never even try it.

        Same, I absolutely cannot get back into destiny 2 anymore because of how FOMO it is. A game that has notoriously lacked content for the majority of it's lifespan now has temporary content that is removed and then maybe recycled periodically. Come back and there's tons of shit where you just had to be there to get it. Maybe you have to wait a week or 6 months to get that thing, or maybe it's gone forever and you're never fully sure which it is. I put up with that game through it's worst times and no matter how much I hear how better it's become I refuse to ever play it again. Shit trash game was dead to me since flopkeep launched.

    God, I want to frick the Fortnite banana so fricking bad. Imagine him in bed; his lustful eyes gazing into yours as you penetrate his peel. How warm he feels on the inside. His thick, yellow curves bending just to right into your chest as you thrust into him mercilessly. Imagine the warmth and extreme pleasure that you must get when you finally release your load into the Fortnite banana. His gushy insides become soaked with your seed. All that cholesterol, covered in your juice. You peel him back and take a bite of that sweet victorious fruit and taste your proud work and dedication on your tongue. The banana pushes his beautiful curved form against your body as you drift off to sleep, having had the most incredible and most amazing orgasm you have ever felt in your life— all thanks to the Fortnite banana.

          The censorship isn't about anything sexual. It's either because of demonic imagery like the DOOM stuff has which makes religious countries scream, or like in Cammy's case it's because of weapons like knives and guns on the character model.
          Yes it's stupid that a game about using guns to shoot people has censorship about characters having guns on their person. It's supposed to be a case where the skins aren't used in game modes without guns that are aimed at younger kids, but who is letting their young kids play Fortnite but won't let them near any mode with guns?

    Imagine being a kid playing Fortnite and you can't have Master Chief because they never put him on sale anymore and probably never will. 10 years from now kids who weren't even born will get into arguments with their parents because they want the Goku skin because a friend of theirs at school has it (from their dad's account) and their parents will literally be unable to ever buy it for them.

          Promotional item for TF2 that you get for an achievement in another game. This is a thing they do often, there's a few games like this. The promotion system still works for them too, the most prominent examples are the Poker Night games, which give a variety of items (the poker night 1 ones are the most saught after). As long as the game is on steam, you can get it and use a program like SAM to unlock the cheevo for you.
          For this weapon in particular, the achievement comes from a game that was completely removed from steam. There's no store page, can't add it to your account (even thought it was free), no CD-keys, so the item is totally unobtainable now unless you did the promotion at the time the game was live
          Add into the fact that in TF2, almost every item in the game is tradeable, EXCEPT for promotional achievement items. So you can't get it at all unless you find a glitches traceable copy which you have to pay an arm and a leg to get

              >badges
              Yeah, that's a thing too. Lots of old badges you can't get anymore, but the difference is most people don't really give a shit about badges. The things with value are cosmetics, and most importantly weapons. There's a frickton of hats and badges in the game, so missing out on one isn't that big of a deal. But weapons are a lot different, since there's a comparatively small amount of them. There are only four promotional achievement weapons, and of them, 3/4 come from poker night 1, and the other is the black rose (the knife in question). Poker night you can still get by CD key, and one of the weapons, the lugermorph, even has a mass distributed tradeable vintage variant

              If it helps to think of it like this, in TF2 there's lots of weapons, and they can very in quality, but a regular player can in theory obtain any one of them in some quality. For instance, even if poker night shut down, you could get a vintage lugermorph. But, out of ALL the weapons, there's only a very small list that are truly unobtainable anymore. These are
              >golden wrench

              >black rose
              Playing A.V.A.
              The first three I listed are ridiculously rare and people don't have much fomo for them because even when valve gave them out, they were still essentially unobtainable. But the black rose is unique in being the only unobtainable weapon variant in the game that USED TO be easily obtainable, so the only issue is just not playing during that point in time

                WTF I HAVE IT

                I hope they make it tradable. Maybe if people start demanding they do, since its not obtainable anymore. Almost everything used to be tradable in Valve games, but they started reigning it in and I guess the fomo money is too good. As TF2 gets older, one of its main appeals is collecting.

                IIRC some of the achievement hats werent tradable, like the summer shades, but gift wrapping them makes them tradable

    No idea why everyone here is flipping out at you, you're totally right.
    You should be able to earn things in video games, not just happen to be playing at a certain time. People used to know that.

        i started chapter 5, and honestly the only skins I really wanted were old collabs it's actually very, VERY few things in the entirety of the game that actually interest me whatsoever, and I got certain skins I really like already so I've really got my bases covered.

      It shouldn't be fomo in the first place. If I want to play as Peter griffin in fortnite and I'm willing to give money to do so, I should be able to just get it and have fun. Instead skins are arbitrarily locked to battle passes, and the ones that aren't are rotated out of the shop so you won't know when they'll come back.
      You could get lucky and the skin you want is constantly returning, or get fricked out of it for literal years for one reason or another. Pic related, the street fighter costumes have been gone for 2 fricking years and could pop up literally anytime without warning.

        >shouldn't be fomo
        Sure, from a player standpoint, but also you shouldn't have to pay for skins. From a monetary standpoint, fomo tactics are incredibly predatory and also incredibly profitable. If you think you'll never get this skin again, that makes you want to buy it versus if it were always available. Years of scummy microtxns has proven this and they aren't going to stop any time soon unfortunately. Scarcity increases demand, basic economics

      The entire point of FOMO is to create impulse purchases. Will this ever show again? Or will it disappear forever? I can tell you now, for all of the Capcom skins in the game, none of them have been reissued since either RE4 Remake's release or 2022, meaning anyone who dodged the Street Fighter stuff then has never seen it again and regret it. Raiden with the MGS collab has shown a couple times since earlier this year, but once this Chapter's over, the odds of him ever appearing again are slim. And then there's the FOMO of the passes; with MGS as the continued subject, if you weren't there for Season 1 since December to March, you simply and completely missed out on Solid Snake / Old Snake. You just had to play it then or hold your peace forever.

      This is what the industry is now, trying to incite people to play their crap NOW because you MIGHT never see that Gundam shit in Call of Duty Warzone ever again!

      You're thinking the gacha industry. That's both FOMO and technically legalized gambling because "they tell you the rates" and other shit. Unless something horrifically bad happens with Epic's security/bank account shit somehow, no one will regulate regular microtransactions and FOMO, but it's the gacha that's meters away from the lootbox stinkeye since it's virtually the same thing.

      moron, voting with your wallet means you get 1 vote per dollar, not 1 vote per person. that is why voting with your dollars does work. you're just an eternal loser because you're both unpopular AND poor. and a combination of those is also why you will never get the government to do what you want.

      the funny thing is Fortnite JUST introduced this past week or so a new change to their storefront in that they actually tell you when things are leaving the store, albeit you have to individually check the items and read the small fine print beneath the purchase button shit because their UI designer is a goddamn moron this year.
      and after buying a pack I'd been waiting for for a while with its return, I realized "wait this isn't any better, now they're just manipulating us to calculate when and how to make our purchases to coincide with paychecks or the like instead of simply on-the-spot"

      mentioned is a byproduct of a recent fine against Epic. Sure the monetary value is basically nothing, but it did force them to change their methods.

        pacing isn't an issue for me it's the other changes they made to the map and guns and stuff. just feels like a downgrade compared to the previous season where the guns all felt really nice to use and the game felt balanced.
        cod is a tough game to play because it's super sweaty most of the time but i suppose i'm a sweat too so i do quite well.
