BioWare Bazaar

The countdown on the BioWare website has concluded with the announcement of the BioWare Bazaar, continuing a grand tradition of these countdowns not concluding as anticipated. Update: It should be noted this is in the US only, and residents of Florida and New York are not eligible. Here's word:

To show our appreciation of fan support over the last 15 years, we have created the BioWare Bazaar!

The BioWare Bazaar is a week long series of online auctions featuring over 400 prizes, ranging from custom painted PC's to BioWare apparel and more!

To bid on these auctions, fans will have to collect tokens through various challenges. On April 6th on 9AM PST the first BioWare Bazaar auction will begin, with new prizes being auctioned every 15 minutes until 4PM PST on Saturday.

Oh and Canada should definitely not be included, screw Canada. Canada should be annexed to the U.S. immediately...hang on...I seem to remember that Bioware used to be from Canada...

Um, I guess that would make us Chinese, since China owns the bulk of the socially-/educationally-/economically-collapsing USA.

Besides, if you did annex us, your students would automatically shift down to the lower third of the bell curve, your property values would devalue even further (god forbid the rest of you get kicked out of your houses too) and you'd have to put up with a new state that practiced actual social responsibility and wasn't prisoner to a corporate-run pseudo-democracy.

Ok I can understand why they would exclude "the rest of the world" I mean it only accounts for about 60% of their sales, but why in the world would they exclude New York AND Florida? They dislike Liberals as well as Far Right Conservatives???? How is that possible?? Inquisitive

Contest requirements must meed specific state regulation standards, Florida and NY have some of the most strict when it comes to them. Various locales in Canada (Quebec for example) area even more insane when it comes to requirements.

While it sucks, hell I lived in Florida for most of my life and was excluded from all kinds of nifty nationwide contests, it's something that neither BioWare, nor EA, have a control over.

Call me weird, but I fail to see how charging fans for merchandise shows them any appreciation.

Hahah what a joke. Way to raise everyone's expectations with the countdown and then drop something this lame. Throw in the restrictions and it's not even relevant for most of us. Not that I really care about that particular detail, as I have zero interest in their novelty items anyway.. But a countdown? Really? Here's a free Protip: Countdowns are reserved for KOTOR3 announcements or similar.

Granted, I was fully aware it was going to be something a little more lame than that, but I doubt anyone but the most cynical among us anticipated something this bad.. Quite impressive. Hats off to the incompetent ladies and gentlemen at the Bioware marketing dept.

Well, I really don't feel all that privileged that I can buy from this 'Bazaar', even though I live in the US. I was expecting something lame, but the level of epic lameness of this exceeded my expectations. Normally I applaud a game design studio for being over-achievers, but not in this case.

But on the plus side, I DO have 4200 tokens. Can I just cash them in for Awakenings? That would be much cooler.

Next countdown will end on a Monday at 9am in their local time, and herald nothing more than when that work week begins.  
Huh? I'm sorry, I was thinking about cake.

It's not open to Canadians and it's a Canadian company? Oh right, they're owned by EA now. and people wonder why I say Bioware is gone.
Thanks for another lmae marketing countdown, douchebags!
