I'm not saying the loot grind in the game is good but I feel like some people who wouldn't even touch that stuff normally are complaining about it. If you are planning to buy this game and are only interested in the story mode, arcade mode, AI vs AI battle and online competitive then none of that loot stuff will ever be a problem.
that is apologist BS and you know it. Even if you only care about story and online, the game forces you to engage with the crypt to unlock costumes and such, which you see when fighting. Its unreasonable to expect no one to care about the unlocks just because the are gameplay first.
