Yes, it is a decent gesture which is the point I was making. At least you got something as opposed to 100% nothing. What did blizzard give their customers for the Diablo 3 issue? Nothing.

I'm hoping this is just forgetfulness on your part and not outright dishonesty but Blizzard gave consumers a direct refund for 90 days following the release as an apology, regardless of how much they had played the game. So yes they gave consumers something, they gave them their money back, something EA has failed to do. A token gesture from a free game is fine but money speaks louder than free games. That's in addition to the extra patched content they've produced since then, something I doubt EA will be doing much of outside of bug fixes. People can rail at Blizzard about the quality of D3 and I will be right there with them but they stand behind their products.

Outright dishonesty? Come on, that's childish. I had no clue that they gave refunds out, I wish I would have known since I never wanted to purchase it in the first place... was pressured by friends.

Read your own post, you seemed pretty convinced that they didn't which is why I said that. I don't agree with their design choices but the fact is that they are a better company than EA and stood behind their product by offering a no questions asked refund for a long time.

So, aside from all the bugs and rage against online only mode, is the game good? Thinking about grabbing this and Dead Space 3.

This is a pretty honest review of it: http://youtu.be/GV_94TQUvBA some rage about the online mode but a lot of good info about what the game does right and more importantly all of its dumb limitations.
