    I was missing the point? I have a thread about there not being gold in game...

    Together with League of Legends, this is the best cash shop I've seen. I also gave Path of Exile some money by buying a pack. But with both games, it is completely optional to play while using the cash shop. The game is totally free. In the end, if I play a lot, I buy some stuff from the cash shop, because I like the game, not because I need to progress. The prices may or may not be steep, but in the end they have a business. I say well done Grinding Gear Games for creating an absolute gem of a game.

    the currency pricing seems ok to me, we would have to see how they price the items though. Sadly i wont be playing this game unless they add WASD movement, which they wont. Therefore, im out.

     

    Enjoy the game everyone.

    What could be in the cash shop that would require $250?  This isn't an mmo with a persistent world is it?

    I'll stick with Torchlight 2 where for $20 I get the entire game and can still play online and lan.  I realize TL2 isn't as deep or complex, but it's still a damn fun arpg and it has its own style.

    Maybe I'm missing something but that just seems steep and I'm not seeing the value here for an indie clone game.

    It's only fluff in the cash shop. The only thing not cosmetic is extra character slots and bank space.. BUT you get loads of bank space and character slots for nothing anyway. More space and character slots than TL2 anyway. You get the full game for nothing, it's cheaper than TL2... it really is free. No experience boosters, nothing like that.. No strings.

    The higher packs do, though - i.e. the $100 supporter pack gave people 1000 points, as opposed to $100 giving 1065 points now. True, the supporter packs contained additional stuff, but I think if they started giving out much better deals now then a lot of the early supporters would start complaining.
