That banner ad story is pretty interesting and troubling. Let's hope that's an idea and practice that can be beaten down...
There's a comment in the article that makes it sound like CMA internally is in a bit of disagreement over this. Sadly, the comment is referencing a communication prior to the EULA change.
CMA is either seriously hurting, or some jackass there met these R66T guys at some conference and got sold onto this being a huge revenue stream. I don't see it going well for the company, and I don't see it going well for whomever is pushing this idea internally.

Is umm, any game as big as Skyrim?
Isn't it still in the Steam top 10?
DOOM 4 will attract half the sales, if that.

Well, I hope Zygna does well, but I am not sure many great players will join if they don't change their "random number generator" that is in their free program. This is GARBAGE! The hands that show are so unlikely over and over and over and over.

That's not how businesses are usually run, especially ones that control access to ongoing services. How does OP Productions handle payment processing and customer service without this information? Doesn't add to their credibility given the continuing fallout from this game's development.

But it's proof that EA could release an offline patch, if they were ever willing to admit to their mistakes.

So I was trying to see what this expansion pack costs, I have to log into my Blizzard account for that. Since I have not played SC2 for a long time I forgot my password. Resetting password, got the e-mail with the confirmation link. Click on the link everything is fine, try to log in again with the new pw, Blizzard locked my account for suspicious activity.
I never though checking a price on something is going to be this fucking difficult.
The game is $39.99USD in the US. Not sure about the rest of the world though.
I played through the first mission before going into work this morning, and definitely liked what I saw. Nothing much is going on at work today -- mostly today I'm just a warm body so that management can say that someone is on duty if anything happens -- so I'm trying to get SC2 up and running in WINE on my Linux laptop.

Game makers can do what they want, but if they want to appeal to women, half the population, then they can do far better than they are doing now.
Games are misogynistic overall. They perpetuate stereotypes more often than not, and don't challenge people's fixed beliefs in general. Games can be more than what they are now. Books can be controversial, they can challenge people's fixed beliefs and so far, games have not been generally able to do this.
