I knew I was in for another round of “You can’t criticize a game until it comes out” when I made this one. I guess I just enjoy misery. But since we’re going down that road again, why don’t we just cut to the chase and get the next six months of debate out of the way now?
Mass Effect 3 isn’t looking very good. The direction the company is taking is really-
You don’t know anything about the game. I can’t believe you would criticize a game without even knowing anything about it!
Okay, now we know a bit about it. The EA execs have said that…
I’ve really lost respect for you. They said that to INVESTORS. They could be lying! You can’t say anything bad about the game until you see some footage of it in action.
Okay, they released these promotional videos and they look just horrible.
What? Those are pure marketing. You of all people should know better than to believe those. OF COURSE the videos are just going to show off explosions and combat. You can’t really judge the game until you’ve played it.
Now I’ve played Mass Effect 3. I think it sucked.
Why did you buy the game? They made it very clear in the promotional materials that this was a shooter, which you hate. If you bought it then that’s your own stupid fault.
