In fact, the last two Dead Space games also had gun packs you could buy from the market place that contained more powerful guns. I guess it's the choice of the individual if you pay extra. I just don't like the direction this game seems to have gone in.
I'm a big fan of DLC and have always spoken against those complaining about day one DLC for example but the micro transactions route does feel like eventually they'll start releasing half games were the rest is made up of extras you have to buy for the full experience.
I wasn't planning on getting Dead Space 3 though regardless of this.
I know what you mean itchy, it's not a practice I particularly like but as it doesn't affect me in this case I just can't muster up any emotion other than wow, who cares. I can't see it being popular but hey ho, some people might like it so everyones a winner. Just so long as it stays optional and nothing feels like it's cut out for the purpose of money making. Quite happy with the range of guns in DS1 and 2.
Not particularly a fan of microtransactions meself. Sadly I could see them releasing half games and in theory, like communism, it should work. If the prices are right. Get what you want, nothing that you don't. Sounds good, would never work.
Sun Tzu's Art of War was a bit of a hard read so I switched to Sun Tzu Jnr's Colouring Book of Tantrums.
