Go ahead and buy used it you want, there is nothing wrong with it, but doing it to spite a company is pretty pathetic. Lots of people work at these companies and you'd probably get along great with a ton of them. Refusing to give them money for their product just because you don't like some decisions they've made, a particular person at the company, or their public perception is pretty childish.

Everyone always says that Nintendo has great games, and they do, but it also seems pretty clear that their games have gone out of style. They were in style in a big way with the Wii for a part of its lifetime, but clearly not anymore. Nintendo needs to do something radical like they did with Wii Sports to grab people's attention and interest again. When selling hardware you need games that really excite large groups of people. No matter how great these existing games are they just aren't the type that make most people want to buy a system.
A couple years ago, Adam Boyes got in contact with me (when he was at Beefy Media) about consulting on some Mega Man Xbox Live avatar items because I had the most wiki points on the Giant Bomb Mega Man franchise page. It didn't end up working out but I was totally ready to do it.
I have never played a Mega Man game.
This is the best thing. You have made me very happy.
@razielcuts: I read the arguments against her and I still think it's essentially just angry internet misogyny. Either that or you all are so insane as to think that someone needs to be a fan of something in order to do good work. Go look through the history of creative projects and you'll find countless examples of people who did fantastic work in a franchise they were never a fan of. Instead of digging through people's past for silly things they might have said once give them a chance based on their current and future actions. Maybe this lady will do a fantastic job if just given the chance. Maybe she wont and she'll leave without the harassment.
Still not going to buy future DICE games. BF3 was horrific enough to scare me away from them for a good long time.
Why would any reasonable person care? Doesn't change the validity of her pop culture criticism. The points she makes in her video series are valid and interesting no matter what her personality is or anything she might have done or believe. If people would just stop trying to harass her and discredit her they might see that she seems pretty cool.
