Did we miss something on diversity?

1 star Consumerism??

I purchased this game for my 9 year-old son on his birthday, and he then begged me for my visa to buy in-game money! Self-earning, the only thing self-earning about GW2 is that I got it for $10 (on sale) but it ended up costing me $1000s

Incredible game.

This game is a step up from the original. It added a PvE mode, more characters, and of course, more gameplay! The one problem for my son and I are.. The Computer Scientist. This guy is incredibly rare to get. They have upgrades for the game with rare characters, but this guy, he ISN'T included in any of them! I'd care about Disco Chomper, but he's not that good for his rarity. Computer Scientist took me and my son ages to grind for. It was all worth it though, because now, me and my son are an unstoppable team.

Easy to play/use
Too much consumerism
