Heh, I believe that would be news if it were 2001. It's as much of a sign of Mike being correct in his analysis that trolls are getting noisier and noisier as of lately, while resorting to mostly ad-hominem comments.
exactly. I don't even watch TV anymore but I could easily see myself paying a subscription cost for access to HBO without cable. It's the cable I don't care about, not as much the HBO. Not to mention that it's easily more money for HBO as bandwidth is incredibly cheap, and that they could have *gasp* global reach.
Until they decide to actually offer this standalone, I'll just continue to get episodes via alternate means.
I was going to say this actually motivates me to want to seed the torrent for this game, except that doing so would actually *promote* the game and not harm EA.
so I suppose the better option is to share the crap out of this article everywhere in hopes people will stop rationalizing that the battlefield series is worth buying over dealing with garbage like this.
anyone who buys from EA is just buying into stockholm syndrome. How many times do we have to go through EA being openly hostile towards gamers before people realize this?
we have: EA devs crying out for being mistreated
Origin system created explicitly for DRM
battlefield DRM systems breaking constantly and not being reliable (punkbuster since original battlefield)
servers being made reliant on EA for no reason back then too. Hell, they were even sued for it. http://www.gamespot.com/news/ea-sued-over-spore-drm-6198136
it amazes me that people would even tolerate considering EA games at this point. I'm proud to say I will never look at their games anymore unless I download them via torrent so I can play them the way I want. I'm permanently burned by their garbage attempts at looking like they care about customers when they don't.
