Crysis 3 Crisis Averted

The Terms of Service for the new Crysis 3 open beta includes language about banning players for not reporting bugs, recalling the recently quelled controversy over the SimCity beta ToS threating a mab from all EA games for failure to report bugs. This new End-User License Agreement issue apparently has the same resolution as the previous one, as games.on.net notes a tweet explaining: "We did - it was baked into the Beta before we realized it had the 'Bug Ban' clause. We aren't enforcing that." They also link a follow-up tweet saying: "We'll be releasing a blog post about that soon, but for now rest assured we aren't banning players for finding bugs." So we now know why EULAs and ToSes are so lengthy: Even the people making the games can't be bothered to read the crap they let their lawyers stuff into them.

I do get it, hell I've given EA plenty of my own shit over the years as well, but it doesn't get old to you when people use the same tired excuses to bash EA for the sake of it?

Has nothing to do with this trend of yours to pull the "Boosnews is so negative and unfair!!" crap that people tend to do when they don't like the discussion content. It's being discussed because its in the news and its news because they keep making boneheaded decisions. EA had good press for a few years when they were making original IP again and started actually caring about their ports. People don't do it with Activision because there is a lot less of it to talk about. When they were murdering Guitar Hero and not patching fucked up ports people were bitching plenty.

I mean come on, spoiler alert but in a topic where EA did or is doing something shitty, people will be saying bad things about them. That's not unique to here either, go read the comments anywhere.

Take Origin for example, it's essentially steam but people hate it and swear to never use it simply because EA's name is attached.

Different topic for a different discussion. I think EA has given people plenty of reason to distrust a digital client effort whereas Valve has historically done the opposite. Acting as if everyone should just ignore the history of the companies behind the products themselves is not only unrealistic but poor consumer decision making. So while I don't personally care much one way or the other about Origin, it's easy to see why some people do.
