I'm a big MGS fan ever since the first one, and I'm not ragging on the game for this, but something has bothered me since 1998. How Snake was supposed to get the hostages out? For a "solo sneaking mission" where the guy was inserted by submarine, it doesn't seem like there's easy way to get the hostages out. And having a bureaucrat and a fat guy follow Snake around would probably give him away. Was there a throwaway Codec line somewhere that explained this?
Funny you should mention that. I pre-ordered Dead Space 3 for PC on Origin weeks ago. Today I got a message telling me I could pre-load the game before next Tuesday starting today. I think I've gotten a few popup messages like that on Steam too.
Kind of the same thing, I guess, but maybe not as polite as the old Nintendo ones. With publishers having such a new business emphasis on pre-orders and getting pre-orders and incentivizing pre-orders for new games, you'd think they would do something nice to thank people who actually, you know, pre-ordered the game.
@krummi: Totally feel what you're saying about the Legion hit squads. They are totally unbalanced and can be brutal for low-level characters. It must have been intentional, because Caesar is supposed to be some badass emperor type who can have people killed by snapping his fingers.
JE Sawyer is on formspring and has answered a lot of questions about FO:NV development and design decisions. I wonder if anybody asked him why the hitsquads are so frickin' hard.
You're kind of a dick, because they are available via means like Virtual Console. But that would require buying a Wii and also spending money. I guess it's easier to just google "NES emulator". Also, this is Generation Y we're talking about here, so we're all entitled to everything that ever existed ever for free.
If you were in America, there's nothing they could do against you. I don't know about Canada, however. I know that Canadian law is closer to English law, and in England, you actually could get in trouble for "badmouthing" a company under England's legendarily screwed up defamation laws. I'd study up on the subject. If Canada does not share the UK's famously stupid defamation laws, then leave the video up. If Canada is like the UK, take it down pronto otherwise you're in for a costly and annoying legal fight.
He called the company a "scam" in the title of his video, which implies they're actively deceiving and defrauding customers. Access Games doesn't sound like a scam to me. It sounds like a service that this guy has enjoyed for awhile, you pay them money, they send you games in the mail and then send them back. They've had a disagreement over what happened to a to-be-returned game that turned into a billing/customer service issue. There are millions of legitimate disagreements like this between legitimate customers and legitimate businesses every day.
Nobody will defend the right to free speech more than me, but he took it a step far when he called them a "scam". This isn't an identity thief or a Nigerian email scam or a Ponzi scheme. Access Games sounds like a legit company they have a right not to be accused of something they're not in the public eye.
I agree with the advice previously given in this thread, post a new video, state the complaints with just the facts without all the hyperbole and drama.
