Ah I see, so blind hate.
You don't know what the quality of the service will be, and you don't know the price of the service (which you just stated in your reply to me are your problems), so rather then being reasonable and waiting to find out, you'd prefer to come here and pre-emptively hate it without knowing.
What ever floats your boat I suppose.

That's the point.  I don't know.  They won't tell you so you can make informed purchasing decisions.

I don't expect them to explain it.

It's not blind hate, it's disgust at both the predatory business practices and the people willing to defend them.

Better to be overly critical rather than an apologist.

What the hell happened to gamers looking out for each other?  When did that suddenly fall by the wayside in favor of being an unemployed PR representative for a company that has been milking you for money?  When did this happen? Was this with the advent of the Internet?  Is this a recent thing?  I can’t exactly pinpoint when it happened, but fanboy culture has gotten to the point of being actively detrimental to video games.  It benefits nobody whatsoever other than the companies in question.

It’s wonderful that they’ve got a small little army of people that are willing to actively suppress dissent.  Actively lie about the game.  Actively try to character assassinate people.  Engage in ad hominems.  Slam them over social networks.  Downvote videos.  Lie in the comments section.  It’s wonderful if they’re willing to do that, if you happen to be Hammerpoint Interactive or any other company that has people like that.  It’s terrible for the rest of us.  It’s really really bad.

Gamers don’t look out for each other anymore.  And that’s really depressing.  The last thing that should be happening is gamers actively trying to mislead other gamers because they want to feel better about their purchase.  Or because they want more players in their game, even though the game is clearly not up to spec.  Where do you get off doing that?  That is morally bankrupt.  That is ethically unsound in the worst possible way.  It sucks, and you suck for doing it.
