Why all the hate for Deep Silver?
They publish the X games and those are great so it's not all automatically doom and gloom.

You may recall that X3 was published in Europe:

A) in a hideously unfinished state, to the extent that it was largely unplayable for most users until Egosoft rushed out a massive patch to fix all the issues. Egosoft later admitted that Deep Silver wanted them to release early to catch some holiday sales, even though Egosoft itself had said the game needed a few more months of polish.

B) with Starforce DRM, which led to a massive boycott campaign on Ego's own forum, and which undoubtedly hurt their sales of X3 (which were a bit disappointing.) Who was responsible for this decision? Oh, that's right, Deep Silver.

They deserve all the hate. They are a terrible piece of shit publisher who even today still insists on putting TAGES (which is sort of Starforce-Lite) on every game, including those already protected by Steam.

tl;dr: Fuck Deep Silver. It's a bad place for Volition to wind up. I half expect to see SR4 in stores in 3 months, and not even be worthy of being called an alpha prototype.
