    I'm sure if these three projects are green lit within Valve then they should be pretty interesting.

    I'd laugh at that, but then I have spent ~£60 on overwatch loot crates.

    At least the Overwatch ones are more honest. Simply a matter of paying to get something quicker than unlocking it the grind way. I may not be a fan of how the grind is often extended so that it's less bearable, but it's still an okay enough practice.

    CS, on the other hand, just annoys me. I picked the game up for peanuts so sunk some cash into 20 crates and keys, the value seemed fine to me. I massively lucked out and got a pretty decent knife from those, which in turn paid for GTAV for me. That said, the practices on the store are shady as balls. For one I'm not a fan of how you can earn the crates but not the keys, no grind option here and I don't think you can get the rarer skins/items from standard play?

    Secondly, Valve takes a cut from store sales. Sure, on a place like eBay i can understand that, you're buying with real money that's not attached to them. But on steam you buy with steam cash. So really you've already paid Valve, and they're reducing the value of effectively in-store credit. Over time this just removes cash from the system, clever way of getting top-ups in.

    If i was gonna get any VR, I'd get a Steam one, Valve is the least worst (ethics wise) company out of the VR options, and their ongoing product support / free extras is at the higher end (it doesnt go that high) of the scale.
    I'm still not tempted to get one though.

    VR is still way to clunky in size for me, who wants to sit there with that on your head and all those wires.

    No thanks
