Micro transactions are coming to Halo 4

1 min read


I absolutely despise micro transactions and when they started appearing in some of the types of games that I really enjoy I started to get depressed but this latest news really has got me down.

I’m not a huge Halo fan but I am well aware of the size of the following the series has and the announcement by 343 Industries Executive Producer, Dab Ayoub, has my blood running cold

“We don’t have too much to talk about in terms of our plans down that line, but it’s (micro transactions for cosmetic items) certainly something… we’ve seen the fans of Gears are enjoying, and if it’s something we think our community is going to enjoy, it’s something we’ll seriously talk about.”

While on one hand I don’t mind seeing a fool parted with his money I do believe this is a slippery slope that we are all going to regret in years to come.

The next step is that you will be able to buy a cammo outfit in Halo that makes it harder for you to be seen, granted it’s cosmetic only but it gives you an advantage over others. Next all people will be given glowing guns as default but you can always buy a normal black gun skin if you’d like.

I don’t like it and I don’t want it to happen but I know it’s going to.

      I enjoyed the single player of Halo, and sometimes the multiplayer. The difference is, I can say THIS SUCKS BALLS AND HALO IS BAD AND SHOULD FEEL BAD. See, not one mention of your mother or sister 😉

    Dead Space 3 is a bitch to play. I can see that they gave us such frustrating weapons that has ruined the fun and pacing of the game so they can force you into buying some kick ass automatic rifle.

    For fcuks sake. My Bro and I are 23 hours in and still the weapons suck. I have a rifle that has no automatic trigger, wave after wave after wave after wave of zenomorphes also sucks ass.

      Dude…my guns in Dead Space 3 absolutely rapes the shit out of enemies in Dead Space 3, I don’t know why you are struggling??

      I haven’t made one micro transaction in Dead Space 3 and my guns are perfect. I finished the game on Impossible difficulty with no problem.

      Maybe you should go check some guides on how to build good guns?? Haha

      Dead Space 3 is an AWESOME game without the Micro Transactions, Im really getting tired of all the hate towards this game, and most of the times its about stupid stuff like the Micro transaction thing… :-/
