One of the big problems of some cash shops (especially a certain cash shop that has gotten a lot of attention recently) is that they sometimes like to charge large sums of money for in-game items. Microtransactions work as a business model because they are sums of money that don’t “require thought.” When you look at a one or two dollar item that you want in a cash shop, you pretty much click the button without giving it another thought. The Premium Item Pack for Tales of Arise includes 100,000 Gald, the in-game currency which would take dozens of hours of play to acquire naturally, 5 X Life Bottles to revive allies in combat, 10% off the General Store, which basically makes everything much cheaper, a 20% SP Boost, and a 20% EXP Boost to help you level up significantly faster. You can take photos of the characters in various costumes, complete with a hilariously stern message that appears when you try to adjust the camera to look up their skirts (never let it be said that I’m not thorough).
Shop with confidence. Avatar The Legend of Korra Costumes are the best you can ever come across online or offline. What we need to go over are the three cardinal sins of why current cash shop setups get such bad recommendations, and how we need to evolve to overcome them. Pop culture moves fast, which is why we have plenty of cool Halloween costume ideas based on your favorite film hero, video game character or TV character. Show off your ninja skills in a hooded Ezio Auditore costume complete with an attached cape. DuckTales: Remastered and Double Dragon Neon developer WayForward is working on a new Ninja Turtles game called Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Danger of the Ooze. Yes, we’re called PS3 Fanboy and we also love working with our portable brother/sister site, PSP Fanboy, but as siblings we can’t ignore our incredibly famous predecessor: the PlayStation 2. While 2007 saw a surge in sales for the PSP and the expanding user base and support for the PS3, we’d be remiss if we didn’t take a look back on some of the more notable releases on the PS2 in 2007. We say notable because, like with most aging consoles, many of the games are Barbie-inspired mindless crap.
After the Crusades and the Renaissance, the Revolution seems to be an ideal setting to play with the game’s formula, and in a demonstration here at PAX East 2012, I saw just how Ubisoft plans to do that with Assassin’s Creed 3. Boston and New York will serve as the main cities for Assassin’s Creed 3, but “the frontier” will also play a major part, at least as much as the cities. The fastest news will be found on social networks, where you’ll probably see news as it happens — try following @Warcraft, @WoWInsider, or any of your other favorite WoW blogs on Twitter for quick updates from the convention floor. With the Halo Master Chief costume you will also be in a position to survive the interstellar battle as you bring the character to life. Makes a great group costume. It’s possible that they came about from Requiem’s Nictus abilities in much the same way that the Council would later gain a unique group of soldiers, the Galaxy corps.

In fact, microtransactions are personally my preferred way to play a game, as they allow you to pay for the content you want per month instead of having to dedicate yourself to a 15 dollar subscription fee and worry about not playing your game. What should be a convenient and fun way to pay for your favorite games isn’t so convenient or fun. Even for premium games that have a subscription fee, we still have “microtransactions” in the form of service options like server transfers. Plus, if I see things I like in your cash shop, I may just spend more than 15 bucks — an event that won’t happen on subscription based games as I always take the 15 dollar a month subscription. For free-to-play games and for subscription free models, these things are the way you make money. It’s a heck of a tank, absorbing damage like mad, and it’s also the only way you can earn the “Hard Corn Mode” achievement for completing the game with him in your party, essentially reducing your party to two active members. The 3Doodler Start melts sticks of plastic so you can draw them into any shape, but the nozzle and melted plastic aren’t hot, so they won’t burn little hands.
