Appaently, the studio that developed the game was closed down. So it doesn't look like THQ is going to sink very much resources into this project. I wouldn't hold my breath for patches or any kind of support either. Hey, who knows, I'd love to be wrong on this one and have THQ patch in on-line coop. That would be awesome.
Yeah, unemployment sucks. I suppose if it is self inflicted and you can go back to a good job at any time, then it might be different. However, if you've lost your job and/or can't find a job it's absolutely miserable.
Gaming is so much more fulfilling when you're using it to escape the stresses of the work/school day. I remember back in the day when i was in college the solitaire that came with windows was terrifically fun when I had a paper to write or a test to study for, but as soon as finals were over solitaire was the epitome of boring.
Even if Jack doesn't live a pure and innocent life, he did live a life that was superior to John's.
Think about it... John was only hunting Bill, Javier, and Dutch for what...a few months? Until the US Marshalls step in Jack had a loving two parent home. Apparently, Jack also has a ranch that he has inherited. If Jack raises a family, then it may be safe to assume that his children will have a life that is better than Jacks. I don't think that John's efforts were completely wasted.
