Coming from you, and your habit of referring to people with "the other opinion" as "conspiracy theorists." I'm taking it that as a veiled compliment. If he wants to somehow take a throwaway comment...

Pointing out that most of the gaming community is ridiculously polarized about this issue is "offensive and unhelpful"? Over-sensitive much?

To be fair to the other side, whichever way you look at it, Shepard survives the blast. Also, the codex clearly states that indoctrination can be an almost instantaneous process, but is rarely used...

Maybe everything happened as shown, and just that scene is part of the indoctrination of one of the Normandy survivors from some dormant Reaper tech that was stowed away...

I guess this would be a prime case for deployment of Occam's Razor. There appears to be three main choices, each with a few subtle variations.
Blue: "Everything shown literally happens as it was...

I'd say that the exact level of likeliness would depend on exactly how that would play with their plans for post-release DLC.

Thanks for the heads up, Dexter, that's some of the best coverage I've seen for a long time.
I especially appreciated that they embedded Total Biscuit's recent mailbag for their readership. The...

And what happens when the sliding scale moves even further along and we get to the point when this is standard practice for all games? What do we do then? You do realize that this isn't going to...

...and all of this beautifully illustrates my point.
If a publishers suddenly decides it's going to start screwing with the paradigm of what happens when you buy a boxed game, a lot of people...

They could in theory do that, but if you offer a company like EA a choice between "some money" and "no money", which option do you think their shareholders would think more reasonable?

Hell, I'll draw up a contract, and sign it.
The price of doing business with Taidan, of house number 10, the internet.
Any sale of your game to me entitles me to:
Free DLC for life...

No. The problem is them. The problem isn't that they're expanding their game, because we all love a bit more Mass Effect. The problem is that they're devaluing the core product and fucking with my...

Seriously though, you've still missed the point. The logical conclusion that I was illustrating was that we seem to hold certain games publishers to a much lower standard of...

Actually, there are no hard and fast rules about what makes the initial purchase of a game "complete" or "incomplete". Such things are entirely arbitrary, as they are entirely down to the perception...

I bought that to get the DLC.
28-02-2012, 01:36 PM
...and no, that's not a quoting error.
28-02-2012, 01:22 PM
What if? Then yes, that would count as a gimmick, and I'm sure everybody would go on to liev together in peace and harmony.

Yes, Kasumi and Zaeed were good examples of small inconsequential additions, who by virtue of the nature of their characters were not integral to the plot of Mass Effect 2. That's the kind of DLC...

Of course I'm not suggesting we should steal. I'm trying to convey that if your held the customers to the same moral standards to which you appear to hold the publishers, we'd all get nowhere real...
28-02-2012, 10:18 AM
Does that justify what would happen if all of their customers suddenly took the same attitude? Surely we'd all have more money to ourselves if we simply got these games from one of their...

If they allow some smart crossover with their other MechWarrior title, e.g. "Buy this Mech/skin/gun for the one game, you can use it in the other", then we might find ourselves in a situation where...
I have Steel Battalion, complete with ludicrous controller, on the original Xbox. The game itself doesn't get played much these days, (It's bastard unforgiving, and will delete your save-game if you...

Either you're making up stories, or that's a hell of a bug. I'd report it just to be sure, because the SWTOR the rest of us are playing doesn't render players in cutscenes unless they're grouped with...
