Ok I don't particularly like EA but all their multiplayer crap just comes to me for free in ME3, I don't know what I did to get all of it(maybe they stole my money without me realizing :P).

Capcom and its love for locking content on the disc, and not just any content, but characters and endings.

Capcom: "No Ace Attorney for you!"

Capcom: "Now that Keiji Inafune left, we're canceling all Mega Man games! Also, it's totally your fault fans. You didn't use our impossible to navigate dev room website or buy the Prototype version that we never even released in the first place, so it's your fault!"

Capcom: "Here's Dead Rising 2 Off The Record as a brand new disc instead of the cheap DLC for Dead Rising 2 it should be! In fact, Off The Record gets its own DLC! $5 for cheat codes!"

Yeah, how many pointless gun packs did you buy with real money?

Also, ME3 MP sucks, so they definitely stole your time.

Ubisoft- they are scary to me, because they feel like they are EA in training right now- the endless annual Assassins Creed games, the blantant trolling of Wii U Fans who thought they were getting an exclusive Rayman to have the rug brazenly pulled out from under them 3 weeks prior to launch, and then ignoring the outrage- the shameless pushing of their own budding UPlay "service". I for one won't forget Rayman when I'm asked to buy Assassins Creed again this year.


I also won't forget Assassin's Creed 3 Liberation. Completely broken game full of massive bugs and glitches. And I'm not talking about minor "oh no I got stuck in a rock" glitches, I'm talking about massive "the controls are completely broken" glitches and "Oh s*** it just corrupted my single player save file meaning I have to start the entire miserable game over again" glitches.

Ubisoft is like some sick hybrid of Activision, EA, and Bethesda. From Activision they borrowed yearly releases. From EA they borrowed all kinds of nasty DLC, online pass, and crappy PC client practices. From Bethesda, they borrowed not testing the f***ing games.

And no, Bethesda does not get a free pass because their games are teh bigz. That excuses minor bugs. It does not excuse massive game breaking engine problems like the ones frequently seen on PS3 where if your save file gets too big, the game starts frequently locking up, crashing, and suffering massive framerate drops. And don't even tell me that they couldn't find it during testing, it happened in Fallout 3, then it happened again in New Vegas (game developed by Obsidian, yes, but made on Bethesda's crappy engine which is the source of the problem so they still get blame for it), and then happened again in Skyrim. PS3 being hard to develop for isn't an excuse: either do it right or don't do it at all. Releasing a broken game is disrespectful; releasing 3 broken games... I honestly have no idea why PS3 owners still support that company.

You neither agreeing with nor understanding the reasoning behind a company's choices, doesn't make said choices bad or shady.

Just sayin'.

I didn't, you have the option of playing to get the money to buy packs yourself, no real-life currency needed.

Do people like to use the optional worse-case scenario as evidence even though there are alternatives?

Why don't we boycott EA games for a year so the company will learn how to respect it's customers, and that if there's any customers left other than Sports fan who don't have any other choice but to buy from EA.
