The problem with loot crates here – and loot crates are a cancer – is that the game creator publically stated that paid DLC would not appear before the game was finished. Well, that went right out the window. I get this really bad taste in my mouth when somebody sells me an unfinished game and then they turn around and try to sell me gimcracks before, you know, working on finishing the fucking game.
Loot crates have also recently invaded another game I play (The Division) to universal scorn. Sure, great, now I can have a Hello Kitty backpack but my revive still doesn’t proc correctly (a bug they haven’t fixed in seven major iterations of the game).
Loot crates, again, are fucking cancer. It’s the publishers’ method of tapping into gambling money without, you know, actually calling it gambling and having it be regulated and stuff.
