    atm it's a $20AU at best game. And seeing how Origin vault normally gets these for free in less than 12 months I'll just wait for vault.

    That's cool. Just posted in case if there were people who were still, more or less, interested in the game. The destiny 2 discount is better even though it too has micro transactions.

    Nah, they're saying it's only worth paying $20. There's no sale for it at that price.

    Don't give-in and give EA your money for this game, even when it's cheap - until the progression and unlocks are entirely removed from gambling loot boxes... (if it ever happens).
    D2's gambling loot boxes are not tied to progression or unlocks, are mostly cosmetic or basically side-grade mods - so they are entirely optional. Hence concerning, but the lack of outcry to that of what SWBF2 has..

    You can say the same for OW but it's not whether it's optional, but the actual act of spending money for stuff that's determined randomly, is the problem. People what to get their money's worth.

    Injustice 2 gives randomly determined gear in loot boxes but the gear's effects are turned off in ranked mode so everyone is the same.

    So yeah, it has seeped into every release now...jeez!

    Ohhhh.....

    While the first thing you may think of is failure, I see irony and consumer hypocrisy.

    I wonder if DICE even pushed back against EA about the progression system and microtransactions?

    Since DICE is wholly owned by EA and has been for over a decade... I'd say there wasn't any pushback.

    Would be a little embarrassing now, after all the out cry etc to come out and say "hey this game is awesome" not many people would consider you a credible source any more

    I've been putting more time into The Evil Within 2 and I feel I am getting more value from it than Battlefront 2 which I haven't played a ton of recently.

    I played the free beta for about 2 hours and then uninstalled.
    I wouldn't buy the game if it was $10

    Hopefully its a wakeup call that jamming micro transactions / pay to win shit in our faces isn't going to fly.
