I can't imagine why anyone would be on his side here.

The deal said they had to have $30 million by 2 years ago. So it doesn't matter if they have an investor NOW or not, just if they had one THEN.
I doubt they had one at all now or then. Easy enough to read the financials, I don't recall them saying they had $30 million in funding at anytime in the past few years.
Precisely. If anything, it's Interplay's bad faith they've been stringing Bethesda along this long and not adhering to the terms of the contract.

The gameplay is really that stiff......Bioware can do a good story but they don't have the faintest idea of how to make the gameplay actually fun in a hotkey MMO.
It will be strange to be playing a mmog for the story and acting, not the gameplay. If I ever try it, I'll be booting up on an isolated hard drive, virgin OS and new email (rarely if ever, checked) to avoid origin issues. Heard others were going to try to Sandbox origin, hope it works.

Damn, that's some extremely stiff gameplay, can't tell if it's more lack of physics or animations.
They are still pushing Preorders, wth happened to their whole limited release sales scheme, to prevent a bad launch?
Now they are pushing Revan into this nightmare,

Infinite is a top down browser game with some 3d space stations. Unless you still have Bridge Commander, Klingon Academy laying around, Star Trek Online is still your best 'Trek' fix.

Indeed, I am free not to, as is GLAAD.
Again, what makes it so offensive is that it's hyperbole. Again, you clearly misunderstand the entire fundamental concept here. He isn't saying "The Alliance are a whole bunch of males that have sex with each other," he's is making the metaphor of "the Alliance are a bunch of weak, lame weenies which is pathetic and similar to men who have sex with men."
This is why it's offensive - he's using "homosexual" as a synonym for "pathetic." And you don't think people that are homosexual would find this offensive? That the hyperbole makes it worse?
Again, you miss the entire fundamental concept. You must not be thinking about it very hard. You're just saying "haha, it's funny, gay people lighten up!" I'd wonder if you'd feel the same if they took your name and turned it into a synonym for "idiotic."

I know it won't be the last time Ubi pulls this shit. As much as I had been waiting for IL2, I did not purchase it. Well what do you know, a friend of mine did and.....yes another steaming pile of bugs and crappy performance.

Great, now he has some cash to make a new UO type game. Or go to space.

I smell fear of SWTOR.
Wrong. They have nothing to fear from SWTOR. GW2 on the other hand...
If the sales for the completely fucked up Blu Ray release of Star Wars proves anything. It's that there are people who will buy a Star Wars product just because it's Star Wars. So anyone who has played a Bioware game, or a Kotor game, is going to pick up SWTOR. GW2, as innovative as the combat is, does not have that distinction.
