42. Re: Crysis 3 Crisis Averted Jan 30, 2013, 16:55 Beamer
Because you're saying "oh, don't worry, it's just lawyers being lawyers. They'd never do something like that," when in fact they HAVE already abused their bullshit ToS.

They were pretty upfront that they were going to abuse that, though. It wasn't something they snuck in, it was something they announced as intentional.
Then backed away from, went back to, backed away from, went back to, and makes you wonder if anyone at EA has a clue what anyone else over there is doing.

Plus, I'm saying don't freak out and not play a game. But I am saying give them hell for it and make a stink and make them change it.

EA tried to pretend it was a bug.
If I remember, they announced it as policy, then said it was a mistake, then did it, then said it was a bug and it wasn't policy any longer, then did it again... but they still announced it as policy first. It wasn't something sneaky - they told everyone they'd do it. It's what they did after that was sneaky.

I don't think I'm defending EA here. At all. I can't even name the last EA game I played. Looking at Wikipedia it was Crysis 1 and Bulletstorm - I played Mass Effect, Dragon's Age and Dead Space, but for 3 hours, 10 minutes, and 1 hour respectively. Definitely not a huge EA fan.
