Reminded me of that glorious E3 showcase of Rayman's Raving Rabbids for Wii a decade or so ago. Ubisoft let loose a bunch of bunnies on the stage, who then procceded to shit all over the place. By the time the overall presentation finished, long after Rayman's left the stage, there was still a few pieces of habbit feces lying around. lmao

In the end, bringing animals to live presentations is rarely a good idea. Just a silly gimmick anyway.

This was known however since before launch. They said monetization will be cosmetic items if that were ever added.

They've earned microtransactions, in my opinion. There have been so many (very big) updates since launch, that the game is finally what it was supposed to be at launch. I've never had so much fun for so long in an AAA game, ever.

If they add dogs to the available pets, I might even buy one! dance

I have the same reaction as the monkey when reading people's justification of microtransactions.

27:45 in the video if anyone's wondering and didn't read through the article. Priceless reactions.

They need to monetize to continue development. It’s not pay to win, randomized loot boxes, or gambling. It’s pay this amount if you want this item. I have no issue with this type of cosmetic micro transactions.

I never would have watched any part of the video if it weren’t for a barfing monkeys. Marketing win.

If you don’t like the micro transactions don’t buy them? They are purely cosmetic and not loot boxes, no one is forcing you to buy them. Plus this is a permanent games pass game and is one sale like every month, the devs probably need some income to keep the updates coming.

Its like when you go to a bar, you don't buy everything that's on their menu, you can go in there, take a look, if you don't like it you don't buy it. Iv spent money on certain beers that cost more than some games I got, let alone cosmetic items if id ever buy those, in this case, that pippi longstockings monkey is just awesome. Basically those beers work cosmetic eventually , cause your gonna gain weight if you don't watch out. and a 6 euro beer is gone when your finished, this monkey, I don't know what they will charge for it, I guess 3-5 euro? well, you still get a monkey for it, while that beer, became piss, on somebodys wall
