I was always amused by the whining found lying about in webernet blog and forum comments that Xbox Live “refused to support microtransactions”.

We’ve been busy, and haven’t had a chance to play CA yet, but it looks like a fun game and when the schedule lets up a little bit (maybe in October?), we’ll be firing that up with the kith and kin and see how right we still plan to be. Heh.
