RE: Microtransactions store, cuz we dont have enough of your money.
Destiny: pay $60 for the base game, pay $60 for the expansions, and pay more $ to get a cool hat.

Micros are ruining games. It feels like I am playing some terrible mobile game when a game asks me to buy boosts or a new skin for $.99 cents.

In Battlefield 4 you get over half of your weapon accessories from these "Battlepacks". You open a battlepack and get a randomized pool of weapon skins, attachments, camos, XP boosts, and... origin profile pictures...?

The system would be a no-go for me if I wasn't able to technically unlock everything in game by grinding to get service stars for points with every weapon and class and rank. But it still feels biased against the player, because even opening the "gold" battlepack I get like three useless profile pictures, a single camo, and a 12x scope for a shotgun (wut). Its supposedly completely random but I have a feeling the algorithm has a hardcoded tendency to give you crappy drops and attachments for your least used guns.

The grind in Planetside 2 completely turned me off from the game on PC. I played 120 hours and had barely unlocked two guns and some certs. Then they nerfed cert gain and raised prices in the micro store. I just quit. I wasn't keen on paying to begin with, but after that, no way.

It seems like this is the new cash cow for companies, and while I understand the drive for profit, I think as a consumer I'm starting to hit my limit with this. So many recent games have been adding this, and even in full price games. Its almost making me start to miss the days when you just payed $10 for an expansion and that was that. Yeesh

RE: Microtransactions store, cuz we dont have enough of your money.
I actually very nearly brought Destiny again today, as I've heard a lot of improvements have been made since TTK came out. It's £50 now in GAME as a whole package, which isn't too bad. (But let's be honest, it should have been released with all this content in the first place for £50).

Glad I didn't. Micro transactions in a game that costs over £100 (for some people) ... nucking futs.
