I reinstalled the blizz launcher and noticed that Destiny 2 is on it, which struck me as weird, since they said years ago that the Activision Blizzard merger wouldn't affect them; They would remain autonomous.

I haven't personally played Blizzard games since WoW:WotLK, but that was because they started cutting content and selling it back to the customer at a steep price. However, I have heard plenty of their current structure, mainly in Overwatch, by Jim Sterling.

This is an overly-aggressive target marketing tool, one to be used to extract as much as possible from a particular market. If we have a Late Stage Capitalism subxes, this surely belongs there as well.

Yeah it is amazing how few companies can resist the temptation to sell out to these awfully manipulative systems to gain more money.

I'd love to have a LateStageCapitalism sub, but with open comment sections unlike the one on reddit.

edit: I just made it:

If you want to do the honors of posting this over there, that'd be great.
