Frenchman Apologises For World War One 

Here's something you don't see every day. French strategy house AGEOD have responded to complaints about the state of their shoddy-but-no-worse-than-a-lot-of-other-games-rushed-out-of-the-door-to-meet-an-optimistic-deadline wargame World War One  by apologising and offering disgruntled customers a complete refund. In a message that betrayed every tenet of the Secret Publishers' Blood Vow, studio head Philippe Thibaut failed to blame Microsoft, Nvidia, or ATI for the problems, or subtly suggest the grumblers were technically incompetent, ungrateful, or stuck in the past. He didn't threaten or rant, sulk or soft-soap. He refused to plead poverty, ignorance, fire, famine, flood or pestilence. In short, he did The Decent Thing. As Rock Paper Shotgun's laziest contributor am I allowed to instigate the RPS Fair Play Awards? If we encourage this sort of uprightness, it may just spread.
