Yeah, but you can get everything in the game without spending a penny. It's just like Mass Effect 3's reinforcement packs.

Ugh, the game is just getting worse and worse. Between this, Killer Instinct and the incomplete wonder Forza it's a wonder if there will be any games worth buying for the system at launch.

You do know those didn't go over with people very well right? When a game is trying to frustrate you into spending money to avoid frustration? That's not good game design, that's just a way to try to force you to spend money you wouldn't otherwise spend.

How does this make it worse? Being able to unlock new weapons and armor as you progress helps to keep the game interesting. And the microtransactions are optional.

It went over fine with me. ME3 is by far my most played multiplayer game.

Pay to win should never be acceptable.

How is it pay to win? First, it's co-op, not competitive. Second, you can easily win in ME3 using the starter characters and weapons, and there is nothing to suggest the same won't be true in Ryse.

Buying unlockables takes away the feeling...and the point of progression. If there is no end game, then what's the point of continuing to play?

If people want to spend their own earned money on the game for stuff, good for them, but I never buy any of these microtransaction items in games like this and I do just fine, and as others says for people like me that makes the game take more time because I work towards unlocking everything. Also, due to the game being Co-Op like ME3 it isn't that big of a deal since none of the stuff will be used against you.

Well this is what you get when you put no restrictions on used games and lending.

So, basically, shut up. Unless you want more developers to go bankrupt.
