In another attempt to empty the cash from your wallet, Bungie has released an array of character boosting DLCs for the cash cow that is Destiny.
30 dollars to get it to lvl 25!!!! HAHAHAHA
You know whats really sad? People will defend this and say its ok and you don't have to buy this and spew other BS. But they don't see how this is ruining the gaming industry. This $hit does not belong to the AAA games. Go to hell Bungie and Activision.
Bungie!!! Noooooo!! They have no respect for gamers anymore. They're creeping right along side EA.
Omg.... i thought they wouldn't do this? Well, I hope this game bleeds to death now
Though I play it EVERY DAY and have lost more than 1800 hours but sad to say i'm starting to agree :(
You have played Destiny an average of 5 hours a day since it released 15 months ago? So no job or girlfriend?
@captain Jop yes, girlfriend currently no. The thing is I basically don't sleep well just to get as much time with the game as possible and 5 hours a day isn't much anyway! So you didn't really need to go personal!
Bungie don't deserve our dedication and money any more! Damn you and Activision.
Most likely it isn't bungies fault. Here's how it goes. Activision: "MICROTRANSACTIONS NOW!" Bungie: "I don't think the fans will like that" Activision: "DO IT ANYWAYS. We'll tell them its only cosmetic"
Bungie owns the IP so they can easily say no.
Thank goodness I had avoided this atrocity of a game from Bungie and Activision. This is like the horse armor DLC on steroids.
I'm also glad that I didn't go ahead with my purchase after playing the beta a while back. Game looked awesome but oh how low Bungie/Activision have sunk with this M-T BS! Good luck getting rid of that image guys!
Doesn't it only take a few hours to hit level 25? Seems silly. I could see people being willing to purchase high level exotic weapons but this seems silly.
Sell me the TK FOR 25.00 WE HAVE A DEAL
This makes no damn sense, it takes so little time to get to 25th level. How about this, anyone considering this give me $25 and Ill level your guy up to 25 :-), that's a $5 savings!
Shoot, I'll do it for $20 level 25 is a joke, especially since this boost doesn't level your abilities up in the process. You'll STILL have to level up to get basic character skills like your super, grenade types, even double jump lol Seriously, $20, PSN FamilyGai
Jesus I didn't even see that, god what the hell are they thinking...
The excuses bungie makes for doing things like this borders on absurd. But that doesn't seem to stop them not one bit. The sad thing is Iam certain a large number of people have already spent the money on this boost. I picture bungie execs kicking around ideas like this and saying lets see how far we can go with these micros and each time they are not left disappointed at the amount of money people have readily available to throw at them. So it's no surprise they will continue to milk destiny players for every cent. And it's cool it's their money they can spend it how they like. But the problem is when they buy things like this it makes widespread changes to the game culture they affect the landscape in such a way that something that shouldn't be the norm slowly becomes just that. For many of us that don't like this we have no choice but to suck it up and accept that micros are now and always will be a part of our games. It's too late to change any of it thanks to the many gamers who buy these things sending out the message that it's ok to entice us with micros at pretty much any price. As for me I had a hard copy of this game I smashed into little pieces put it on a box and mailed it to bungie with a thank you note. If you feel disgusted as I did I suggest you do the same.
What's really crazy is that there were only the DLC "expansions" in the first year. Not a single microtransactions. I thought it was so cool of them not to be like all these other games that sold us cosmetic crap at every turn or next characters and stages etc. Year 2 hits and all that is out the window, it's micro-trans city and yet they still have the nerve to charge for the base game. Every update screams Free-to-play model coming soon yet they are still charging.
If this game was actually doing something with the content they charge you for or at least giving players value, I could at least bite my tounge, but this is so beyond wrong. That $3 trade-in value for this game is looking pretty good for an F you to Bungie and Activision.
This is directed towards new younger players who get destiny for xmas.
The game is cool enough, but everything is just a bit too much time and effort to enjoy to the fullest for some people's schedule. I can see where people who don't have time to play Destiny as much as others, this would be a tempting purchase, but it makes the entire epic quest seem like it's less significant for players who have actually FOUGHT and Struggled and prevailed thru the whole game so far. This is why I am never buying Destiny, this is why I'm never buying another Activision game unless it's really worth the attention it gets. The company has taken too much Pay to play/pay to win mannerisms from WOW and Blizzard's sneaky book of overcharging for crap and it's been clear as day to me that I should avoid this game from the start. I feel bad that I may have missed out on some epic adventures, but they are just not worth the asking price for DLC and Time spent playing. I feel bad for everyone who is getting their epic efforts diminished by people who can now pay to win
yesss milk them dry, why not? if it works, yess do it, do it!!!!!
