I find his arguement of "People didnt buy my months old game at full price" stupid.
There is a very small hand full of games that still sell at full price months/years after release. Even triple A games hit a sales wall and then fade away. You can't sit there and act like you are some kind of victim of some kind of "industry killing thing" when near the begining you even say you made tons of money from the cheap sales.
There are times I pay full price for a game, example Kentucky Route 0. After seeing the quick look on the site I went and got it. Saddly I havent had the time to play, not because im spending tons of money buying games on steam sales, its because of something called "having a life." Im married and have a job. Sorry I cant take a week off work to spend hours playing Jason Rohrer's game just to make him feel better.
Some one posted earilier about how Rohrer said that people complained about his game when they only played it for 2 hours "not passing the tutoral" if your game has a turotal thats longer than an hour or so that is more of the desginer's fault, not someone who took a chance and bought your game for 2 bucks.
And to tell the truth, I tried couple of his games, and really I don't like them.
No it has a future... as an emulator box.
So they took a money hit to make changes on a years old game then wonder why people would be mad at them?
I mean was there some major online petition to make the changes?
Also the part where they said "No one liked the character, so we wanted to change that..." I remember someone from the company saying before the game came out that Shank was a grindhouse anti-hero, he was a bad man doing bad things. You can't sit back and make someone like that then be upset later they you cant make cute and cuddley versions of the character.
I kinda liked the first one on the PS3 even though i never beat the final boss and maybe if the balance patch came out for the PS3 version maybe i will check it out, and try to beat it.
These companies arent trying to destroy PAX, its just that there is stuff that happened that they dont agree with, maybe next year they come back or what ever.
Think about it like this. How would you feel if one of the Giant Bomb crew was something of a racist and on twitter spouted some nasty stuff. Even if that person came out and was like "I'm sorry" would you still support the site? Some people may shrug and be like "whatever" while others may say "My time and money are not going to support this kind of thing."
