I really don't see this as bad news - the Lucasarts I loved has been dead and buried for years and every recent game I've found sorely wanting.

With no real evidence to see them pull anything great out of the bag (one pre-rendered trailer aside) I'm happy to see a chance for other companies to license and development some of the great old IPs

I think the bad news is the part where everyone lost their jobs and a long standing, familiar publisher was just shuttered.

Disney's licensing model sounds promising, none the less.

Catch you later, John Ricearoni- err, John Tortellini.

They are patching it out? I'm not sure who I've lost more respect for, Sessler or SSM.

I myself didn't have any sort of attachment to the trophy and I wasn't a fan, but this is setting an alarming new precedent. There's no start and end to censorship.

Oh no but the violence is OK. It's the mean implication said about the murderous antagonists that spent years torturing Kratos.

By the way, "gut punch of misogyny" is the new "check your privilege". I let out a bit of a titter whenever I see either of those quotes.

I think that comment about not issuing an apology earlier was a little petty. The game launched on fucking tuesday.

If you had bought the game I'd imagine you'd want an apology upfront. Though for me a halfhearted apology doesn't fix the inherent flaws and server issues.

@artisanbreads: If you bought this game, you'd be saying otherwise. There are ways to fulfill a quarter without skimping and being deceptive.

"Scum" isn't exclusive terminology, and my post below provides enough reasoning to believe EA is as such.

Yes their plan was to get you to buy the game and never have it working. You fell into their trap.

Also, I wait to see how online games fair in the market when they release before I buy them. Do homework. I already didn't like how it was multi focused and now I know not to buy this game. It works out.

Please, continue being facetious. I'm providing you levelheaded retorts and all you continue to do is be condescending.

I myself didn't buy the game, by the way. Always online and dirty dealings I don't tend to condone. In turn, this ended up being a much bigger catastrophe than predicted.

@artisanbreads: I do not recall him saying "video game companies". EA is a publisher and is not interested in good business.

“EA does not force design upon us."

Loving every laugh.

With the amount of injected marketers, disingenuous LGBT support to divert the negative reception, running the risk of getting your Origin account banned upon forcing a refund, and all the drawbacks in comparison to prior SimCity entries as well as forced online, this whole thing has been a constant catalyst to chowing popcorn and enjoying the frenzy - not at the consumer's expense, mind you.

Hotline Miami is broken on the PC?

- 95% of the players of it

Time to take a trip to the Steam discussions page.

It's easy to be dismissive of folks having issues with a game that you're not having. I myself was like "Weird, none of these issues have effected me" but then I went to launch it about a month ago and got kicked to the desktop before I could yell "NO WAIT". Haven't been able to play since, even having gone through the 500+ comments in the support thread.
