The exclusivity however, I won't be purchasing any time soon. :jealoussm

Say what now? You didn't purchase Golden Keys. Gearbox would tweet out Shift codes that you enter and that gave you things like golden keys and skins. There were micro-transactions for extra characters and skins, but nothing that affected the actual in-game progress.

correct, they were social media give away items, and this is epic's first time dealing with the series.

I guess what I was meaning to say is that you won't find many developers these days that do not have some form of microtrans in their games.

I hadn't meant that Epic put BL2 out but apparently my autocorrect shorted that sentence. I have since forgotten what I was trying to say there but my point was pretty much all AAA titles have the same formula. UbiSoft does it. EA does it. R* does it. 2K does it.

The microtrans argument falls into the Gaming Media political narrative for me. I can take it or I can leave it. If I don't want to purchase skins, I will simply leave them be. Just like games pushing a Liberally biased agenda.

Sorry for the confusion. :blushsmil
