Please!! Does 'Tiny Tina' offend midgets too…….or should I say 'Height Challenged' people?

While on the subject; I never understood, and still don't, why it is considered derogatory to call somebody from the ‘Orient’ an ‘Oriental’. ‘Asian’ encompasses people from Afghanistan to Yemen. From what I’ve been told and understand, it is only in North America that calling some an ‘Oriental’ is considered derogatory. //shakes head

In fifty years we’ll all have vaginas!!!

the term "oriental" has traditionally been used in only two ways: 1) to refer to objects, not sentient people, and 2) in a historically-derogatory manner (implying in the old colonial sense some kind of superiority over Asian people)

as for your "vaginas" comment, erm, what?

Downloadable content? What a great feature for players to enjoy. I for one would enjoy it even more if it came out on Day 1 and cost at least ten dollars.

And who wouldn't want DRM built into their retail copy of the game?

they mean MODS. i'm not a fan of day 1 DLC either, but they're referring to MODS on Steamworks here.

Most anticipated game of 2012? LOL! Thanks BiowarEA I needed that laugh.

Why not BiowEAr?

Edit: It did win that award at the VGAs, as little as that means.

Diablo 3 is coming out this year and the VGAs are kinda hilarious man, pretty sure they've given awards to games barely even released yet. The ME games get big press but the sales figures are usually fairly tame compared to most of the big name AAA franchises. Hell I wouldn't be surprised if that new Bioshock game outsold ME3.

...as much as i despise EA, this is just outright wrong. ME and ME2 have sold like gangbusters. from wikipedia: "A critical and commercial success, Mass Effect 2 shipped over two million copies worldwide in its first week of release,[9] and has received universal critical acclaim.[10] It is currently the third best reviewed game for Xbox 360 and the 14th best reviewed game of all time, according to GameRankings.[11] The game holds over 70 perfect scores and has an average score of 96 for the Xbox 360 and 94 for the PC and PS3 on Metacritic.[12][13][14] In July 2011, IGN named Mass Effect 2 the best game of the modern console generation (2005 - present).[15] In 2010, the game was included as one of the titles in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die.[16]"

come on now.

lol @ people declining to buy ME3 because of Origin (rather than because it's yet another retard-friendly BioWare game) and then going back to playing their Steam library.

"Good will"

That's a flimsy-ass excuse for pledging allegiance to a single digital delivery service and pretending like you're not buying into blatant DRM.

no, it's straight up voting with your feet. Steam has DRM, true. but it's DRM that is nonintrusive, non-spyware, and nonmalfunctioning. in short, it's consumer-friendly.

EA and Origin, on the other hand, are anything but consumer friendly. people are deciding to go with the better option. that's how the "free market" is supposed to work.
