Man, it seems like I never even knew what Activision was up to
& then in the last couple of days all of their shit is just coming to
fruition in one fell swoop!  What the hell???
 
I was looking at picking up a used copy of Marvel Ultimate Alliance
2 & then I find out it's impossible to S-rank because of that limpdick
shithead over at Activision who for some fucking reason, put a time
limit on the DLC!!!
 
GODDAMMIT!  What kind of asshole puts a limited release on DLC
for a fucking game??  It's not even a year later!   
 
So they trashed Guitar Hero, Modern Warfare 2, & MUA 2.  Fuckers.
 
Microsoft needs to tell them to piss off of their 360 Console. I'm gonna
go over to the XBL forums & complain. This is bullshit.

That's... odd. The DLC for the original is still up...

Huh. You can't get MUA 2 DLC anymore?

 
That's weird. Surely that couldn't have taken too much money to maintain, right?

I never heard about the limited release on the DLC. That really does seem odd and stupid.

Didn't they pull the rug from the fan-made Kings Quest project recently as well? I know that they can just use a different name, but still, Activision are not doing well in the public eye :|

That's correct!
 
Well I checked the XBL, they said that since Marvel was acquired by Disney, there was an opt-out clause, so 
Disney decided to pull the DLC.  I'm really astounded that it wasn't Activision's fault after all of the bullshit
they've been putting others through lately.   
 
They should have at least put out a patch to remove the DLC achievements. It's bizarre that they would 
even write code for DLC achievements if there was an existing contract stating that it could be opted
out at any time.
 
Not exactly very enthralled with Disney owning Marvel comics either.  What is the world coming to?
