I'll catch you all in other, hopefully more civil and open-minded forum discussions.

P.S. Midian, If you are watching via Netflix, add Dexter to the queue, great show!

Again, best wishes

Actually I wouldn't mind getting the thread back on track... not the natedogg argument but there's always someone out there ready to complain about prices. This thread is for the purpose of directing them all someplace contained and I haven't got around to feeling sorry for myself yet

After two days of not checking I can't believe this is still a first page thread...

It's called "the market", and if you don't like it, wait for things to go on sale before you buy them.

Wow, you're such a jrk. And stop treating my buddy Midian in such an impious manner.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Point noted, but I can certainly see both sides of the argument here.

I challenge any warm blooded gamer not to feel frustrated when a game goes on sale within a week or two of it's App Store debut. Yes, it is the current App Store climate, buy it's worryingly anti rewarading for all the day one buyers - how many times will developers financially punish genuine gamers like myself who desperately want to support indie developers by buying their games within hours of launch.

I think Cave is the very best example of customer loyalty. With each of their three iOS offerings launching at heavily discounted prices for the initial fortnight, and the odd scattered sale thereafter. Kudos to Cave.

I love Death Rally, I admire Remedy and Mountain Sheep massively, but I can't hide the fact that I'm mildly disappointed at such early discounts. Indeed it may only be the matter of 1.20 ($2.00 usd), but it's not about the money. It's about two things that are far more valuable - Principle and loyalty.

I've made my point, now I shall only look forward. The fact that Death Rally is such a great game, and that the devs are supporting their game with two early doors updates, certainly softens the blow.
