I don't have issues with people who didn't like the beta, or were disappointed by it, or hoped that features in BF2 made it into the game etc.
I just can't stand hyperbole entitled cunts who stand on their soap boxes saying "FUCK YOU DICE, YOU REMOVED COMMANDER MODE, HOW COULD YOU FUCK ME LIKE THIS?" Get a fucking grip. As someone who works in the games industry, these people really piss me off.
if you don't want to pay as much for a game, just wait a bit after launch. unless it's a game i have to have, i always wait for a good deal, and i always get a good deal. I boght mass effect 2 a couple months after release for about £15, in fact most games i buy are for around that price, unless i can't wait for it. This way, i get a new game, don't have to risk some piece of shit scratched copy, and all my money goes to the developer. Used games are usually a rip off anyway. I'm cool with people selling their games on ebay or whatever, but trading in a game for £5 only for them to turn round to sell it to someone else for £25 is total bullshit
i was considering getting one, not to be competitive, but playing flying games with a joystick is awesome, and it's pretty exciting when you're shooting down other players and stuff. Another thing i want really bad is to play bf3 with a joystick with a 3 monitor eyefinity setup. That shit is so awesome...
