So I opened up steam and found this lovely surprise.
*Sigh* Ignoring opening pre-orders 6 months early, sixty dollars was already a price point I was barely willing to pay, for a rare few games that I was assured quality and hundreds of hours of entertainment. I loved the new version of XCOM, generally like most of the stuff Firaxis has put out recently, and thus XCOM2 has about as much good will as I’m willing to loan out. Turns out that’s not $80 worth.
You’re competing against a market of low-price indies and my existing steam library, price accordingly people.
