Pay to Prey

In this episode I tackle micro transactions again in the form of the widely popular Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes.

 

I take a painstaking look at most of the games systems, how they work, and deconstruct why they’re bad and exploitative.

 

We must never cease to call out these business practices that only serve to exploit us as consumers and vulnerable populations which include but is not limited to children, and people struggling with addiction.

 

I also briefly mention the inclusion of micro transactions in the freshly announced Diablo Immortal.
