You need to read my comments, never once was I bitching I got ripped off, I am simply saying, that as in ANY specialty market, responsible advertising must be enforced, and if not legally, than by the consumers. You are one of those consumers, and accepting lies about games, then saying it's ok for them to do that, will lead to the total ruin of our market. It happened to cars, TV, soap, cereal, airliners, shipping, food...
Lying and hype are what (p)reviews are for? As I knew it, reviews and previews were for community insiders to share their OPINIONS on games. I have no problem with hearing opinions (for example, RWS claims that Postal 2 was the best game ever), as they are easy, very easy to distinguish from fact. I think/9 out of 10/whatever from a review is opinion - that's what they are for. When the developer THEMSELF says "This WILL have x or this will have y, and x and y together are the best damn xy you have ever shimmied", and then delivers neither x, nor y, that is beligerent lying, and can not be accepted. Moreover, your acceptance of that crap is going to guarantee that we have a lot of it to deal with (SWG anyone?). Youse Americans always suprise me with how little logic you apply to anything, and suprise me even more with your complacency in the face of liars. As far as Halo goes, bungie jumped right into bed with Microsoft, and I won't supporting them either. Shit, even if a company of good repute, like iD lied blatantly to me I would stop supporting them. I guess doom 3 will be their test.
Wheel of Time good? I never tried it, but with recommendation like that, I will happily. 40 weapons sounds like a newbie-removal system of great efficiency
I wasn't giving up on their programming abilities, but I won't give a company with a track record of terrible lying money for garbage. If WoT is really that good, I may end up buying it.
As far as warez, and having no opinion after Warezing... This is just a forum where my opinions are relavent... it makes no difference that I warezed U2, I never complained that Epic was ripping me off, just screwing me over (by screwing with this community). Get a fucking clue, and read the arguments before replying.
STAY RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE, GET OUT OF THAT BED AND GET DOWN ON THE FLOOR, GET OUTSIDE RIGHT NOW, RIGHT HERE: GET DOWN ON THE CEMENT, I DONT CARE IF YOU'RE NUDE, GET DOWN ON THE CEMENT, I DON'T CARE IF ITS FREEZING! WHERES THE DRUGS, WE KNOW YOU GOT THE DRU
