You literally just said it cost you $40


Oh okay so we're just playing dumb semantics games then, cool

You know damn well I was referring to the additional pitstop content.

You can make s*** for your game, disable some of it, wait a bit and then enable it and say "Look, it's free!"


And it literally is. It's scummy, it's certainly not generous or a gift, but it literally is content that is added to the base game for free.

Activision has set up mouse traps thinking the playerbase is stupid and now we have the chance to take the cheese out of them without a scratch and leave little "f*** you" notes in its place. If you can't see that as an opportunity to give a big middle finger to the entire concept of MTs then I don't know what to tell you, because it's pretty freaking blatant to me.

"B-b-but the content was made before the game was released, this is somehow better than intentionally waiting to make the content after release so you can mandatorily charge money for it with no possible avenue for getting any of it without paying real money! It's way less greedy to lock anyone who can't pay extra real money out of the content permanently with no alternative!"

Imagine actually not just thinking that, but outright demanding it like this board does.

And with that "oh it's actually part of the base game that was just taken out and added in later" concept... well then f***, CTR has the most content I've ever seen in the base game of a $40 game.

"B-b-b-but they waited a little bit b-before e-e-enabling the content s-so it's 100% f-free! Daddy Activision says it s-so it m-m-must be true!!!!!"

Whee, I can do it too.

Do you think I'd want paid DLC in f***ing Crash Team Racing either?

I see people on this board near-constantly saying they'd rather have that, so maybe?

B-b-b-but they waited a little bit b-before e-e-enabling the content s-so it's 100% f-free!


My point is that either:

1. It literally is free content added to the game

or

2. CTR's base game is a massive value for $40 with something like 50+ characters, over a hundred skins, countless cosmetic options, and more than two games' worth of tracks

Pick one. If you're saying that it's (2) instead of (1) and the GP content is just the base game delayed, then all that means is that the base game of CTR:NF is one of the best values on the market in terms of content-per-dollar. I can't think of a single other kart racer, let alone another multiplayer game in the general mascot genre, that has that much content for only $40.

So okay, they added some MTs. That was s***ty and dishonest. f*** 'em, I'm getting it all for the bare minimum price anyways and so can everyone else for doing nothing but playing online on weekends sometimes.

i never said it was full-priced, i said it wasn't budget priced

$60 with a $80 deluxe edition and microtransactions and snack promotions and battle passes isn't "budget"

She actually said what the price was for AUD. Your incomprehension to actually read and understand that is a whole different thing.

That's usually why you get sarcastic and petty answers. Well, along with drooling over the game under any circumstances.
