Speaking of reductive… (Destiny)

But again for the slow folks at the back. YOU CAN NOW PAY REAL MONEY FOR A NON-COSMETIC IN-GAME BENEFIT WITH A REAL GAMEPLAY ADVANTAGE

You can now pay real money for a consumer goods delivery/video streaming/photo storage service that is owned by someone who also owns a game streaming service with a long history of giving those members things in games they have partnered with who now will give Regime in-game to people (I can’t say I recall anyone saying that weapon is a benefit to anyone since the first month of D1 and anyone who has tried to activate the catalyst would likely say it is just the opposite.)

Even setting aside the questionable value of the item, the causality is so remote it’s hard for me to see this as a line they crossed, but I guess so?

Still, if this is the bee in your bonnet, how is that paying to level up your characters thing not far far worse?
