Anyone have flashbacks to Spaceballs: The Flamethrower? I know I did.
So Aion now joins WoW in the height of hubris by publishing a magazine dedicated to their game, except that this one is a “digizine” published online.
Question: why should I pay you for an online magazine that you use to talk about your game when pretty much every other MMO studio does so for free on their websites? What is so captivating, so rare, so exquisite that it justifies actual monetary transactions?
So the Aion magazine is — correct me if I’m wrong — RMT disguised in the form of a magazine, which is justified by withholding printed content from their players as some sort of hostage situation? Bravo, NCSoft. Bravo.
