I don't like it already. Stop "reimagining" stuff. The original was good for a reason. Sounts like they want to dumb down the game so people don't have to think about time units. I want time units. I want turn based strategy game, not another hybrid real time turn based action game.

I wonder if there are any moral qualms on Blue's part about advertising that ME3 is available for download like this...
You honestly think there's a pirate out there who was blissfully unaware of his own intentions to pirate this game, and had his $60 ready and waiting, but then this BluesNews post reminded him to go do so?

So not only did they get hacked, but their password reset functional doesn't work, and now their whole website is down!
How the fuck a company that manages user accounts doesn't have a properly working password reset functionality?! They posted that message 14 hours ago! How can it take them so long to fix it?!
This is the most incompetence I've seen from any game publisher!

Wow. Maybe some people are going to make Pc games again?
Sometimes, i am so tired of this bullshit that i'm looking for a new hobby which doesn't involve multibillion dollar companies and their marketing lies.

That's not really true at all. Most PC games already have an MSRP that's $10-20 lower than the console versions. Even when all versions have the same MSRP, PC games go on sale more quickly and more often than console games. For example, I was able to pre-order the PC version of Saints Row 3 for about $30. You couldn't do that with the console versions. I believe I could have pre-ordered The Darkness 2 for around $35 at one point as well.
So no, the price of the PC version of any multiplatform game has no impact whatsoever on sales of the console versions.
