Once I dismissed my dog, I never saw him again. Is he still roaming around Sanctuary Hills? He's certainly supposed to be.

That's weirdly depressing.

While the mods appreciate the concern, instead of posting about how terrible this comments section could be, contribute something to the discussion that will make it better :)

Hey @sweep can we start putting staff gifs into the photoshop thread or what

I don't feel like that's in the spirit of the thread. You should probably just sit on them until the right time. Or you could make a new gif-only thread I guess? It would have to be only Giantbomb gifs though.

@humanity: Isn't that business practice more accepted than ever before? Many of those dying MMOs have reinvented themselves with the heavy microtransaction model and have come back and done really well if not better.

Destiny isn't an MMO for one.

I'm so not interested in genre arguments.

It isn't an argument, it isn't an MMO.

Guild Wars was never an MMO, neither was Phantasy Star Online, they're just online games with a 3D hub instead of a server browser.

See previous comment.

Well don't call it an MMO in the first place and admit you were wrong... simples.

Can't see this going anywhere productive, so let's walk away please gents.

Regardless of genre, a F2P model supported by micro-transactions is entirely reasonable. It works for Valve, no reason it can't work for Bungie. The problem here is that Destiny is the opposite of F2P - they are, if anything, overcharging for redundant content. In that context, asking for even more money for emotes is taking the piss.

If this means that we get new strikes, raids and crucible maps for free then this is a good direction because it does not split the user base.

If this was the case then the Taken King would have been free. Which is wasn't. If anything it was overpriced.

Having just shelled out a shitload of money for a game that I already owned and two expansion DLC packs that are now completely redundant, I'm pretty hesitant to give Destiny any more money.

Ever.
