    Jurrasic park builder is another game that really tries to gauge people for cash. To buy a T-Rex you'll be putting down $49.99... What's worse is that I've seen lots of them in other people's parks, and I know they didn't sit and wait around to actually earn enough credits to buy it. I don't understand people who waste their cash on that content, I mean you kinda undermine the whole point of the game by buying all the freemium content, if you just buy everything you were meant to earn, then what's the point?

    There's a bad rap for obsession that goes around the community, but there's a similar rap for subversive methods of obtaining just about anything in the community as well. If i remember, there was a pretty prolific timer scam when the game released that people were much happier to abuse if they really wanted the big purchases, though it really wasn't a popular game to begin with in the community. Most village builder games ring out as cash-grabs pretty fast once the brand novelty wears out. No matter what the brony comunity does, marketing is still by and large focused at the kids, and I see this kind of game as the same kind of business strategy that preys on accidental and spurious purchases more than a completionist trigger in older fans. So..yeah. There's my rant. Didn't like the game much.

    Making money from the stupidity of the general public is hardly a new thing, I think people like P.T. Barnum would have been well at home in the digital age. In fact I reckon his famous quote "Nobody ever lost a dollar by underestimating the taste of the American public." could easily be tweaked for the modern 'freemium' crowd

    Okay, so the Simpson's one wasn't that bad in my eyes. It might be a reasonable purchase for someone who had just gotten a gift card from their family. The MLP one was kind of pushing it, but I guess it could be alright for someone who's really into that kind of stuff. Contract Killer and Real Racing 3 were where I really started to get a mixed reaction of disgust and laughter. They made me think back to the days of $100 sets of golden horse armor, but at least these effected gameplay somewhat. Gun Bros was where that laughter cut out. You see, I get the whole $100 thing. It's there for rich snobs, idiot children, and people prone to clicking the wrong thing on their touch screen, but $600 is just unacceptable. Even someone drowning in money would realize what a terrible decision that is (hopefully), little kids might get intimidated by a number they can't count to, and accidents can be refunded fairly quickly, so what's beyond me is why the hell anyone would ever add such a blatantly obvious cash grab into their already terrible game. Also, hilariously enough, all of these could be obtained incredibly easily by anyone with the attention span of at least a badger and the ability to type 'how to jailbreak an ipod' into google.

    You thought that was bad? Every time I reach my comment limit on GR I get an email from Cooper saying I need to transfer him money to buy Radarcoins to comment again! At $5 a comment they aren't too bad, but eventually my desire to comment will break my bank. Good thing he told me to buy more Radarcoins from him ahead of time though, because apparently commenting when you don't have any coins left will get me banned. I don't know how the rest of you can afford to comment so much.... :0

    I used to play Simpsons Tapped out, but thats it, i stopped when it started getting boring and things were too damn slow, and im usually a patient person. They even made an app for MLP? I didnt know that, but thats how far ill go on the subject.
