    And I fail to see what is so terrible that a person would have right to use the product they paid for as they wish.

    It was Terms of Service.
    Apple was denied by the court.

    I wish more games would employ TF2's mentality: you can buy all the shinies you want, but you can obtain them in the game, so all you're really doing is obtaining it quicker.

    I refuse to fund micro-transactions; I've only spend $0.49 on TF2 to become a "Premium" member, and I got the game for free, so I can easily justify that. Now, if it was $60 and they wanted $20...that's not going to happen.

    I can understand wanting to control multiplayer cheating, but single player? Really?

    I don't mind microtransactions in F2P games at all. They are rather neat way to support the developer whom's games you enjoy in any amount you wish.

    Hehe... Nice... Wait, so are they going to have any patches? You know, for the "real" bugs? lol

    Or is that another deliberately made it that way thing?
    Sir Robin, the Not-Quite-So-Brave-As-Sir-Lancelot.
    Who had nearly fought the Dragon of Angnor.
    Who had almost stood up to the vicious Chicken of Bristol.
    And who had personally wet himself, at the Battle of Badon Hill.
