Yet people still buy on steam ignoring the fact that steam sale prices are the only time steam can come close to the price of other store fronts. Yes console games tend to be more expensive on launch, but the same is true of PC games and steam is the worst service for holding onto that high price the offering a tiny discount during a sale to get people to buy when the normal everyday price on places like Amazon is cheaper than the sale price.
Yeah, really, I know I'm being unfair, and I obviously don't support this method, but this is for the best...
Now if only Russia would ban online gaming...
Really? This defense again?
If I drop $100 on loot which would take someone, let's say, 100 hours hours to earn, you're saying that's not paying for a benefit?
Give me a break... That's undeniably paying for an advantage. It's a crime repeatedly committed by game developers because it brings in lots of money.
Try playing a game that takes pay2win to the extreme. You should have seen planetside2 on launch month. People dropped hundreds of dollars and earned weapons and vehicles upgrades which would take literally thousands of hours to earn otherwise. Developers will argue all options including defaults are equally viable. That can be argued as true, but the more options you have to use ( for example the same weapons but of each element in Destiny) increases your effectiveness that much.
There are many better ways to further monetize Destiny 2. Additional strikes, raids, PvP areas and archetypes, and so forth is where focus should be. Charge a premium and people will pay it.
But giving people the option to fork over lots of cash for gambling chance at advantage long before others could earn such rewards is not cool.
I've never in all my years testing hardware found a TN screen with anywhere near the clarity, contrast or colour reproduction a good IPS or VA panel is capable of. The closest they've gotten have been some of the 4K TN panels.
I haven't seen the S2716DG in person, but I doubt the AUO TN can really beat the latest AUO AH-IPS panel. It might get close, but the IPS screen is truly beautiful.
