I don't play many big AAA games since I tend to find things I absolutely despise that makes me stop playing. Last one I got was Far Cry 3 after I picked up Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. I disliked absolutely nothing about those games. That implementation of open world was exactly how I like it, the game play was great and the story for each was passable to darn good and the games were beautiful.

I picked up Amalur and loved the combat but held zero interest in the story and absolutely hated the sameness of everything, enemies you fight as level one you fight as level 30+.

I also bought Colonial Marines. Enough said there.

So, in what me and my boss thought would be a simple 'email a guy, get information, profit', a single email asking for sales data (nothing crazy: sort of stuff that auto magazines publish - or so I thought) has turned into an epic email chain and I've lost track of how many unique individuals it's been forwarded to.

ah, the joys of big companies :P

I've actually started using Bing maps for certain things, they are nicer looking and often have more detail than Google.

This should pretty well cauterize the wound, but they still lost a few limbs with this whole debacle.

I'm mostly annoyed that they're eliminating the genuinely useful digital game sharing systems in their complete removal of all DRM restrictions. The family sharing and digital download game sharing could be implemented, at publisher doing, without restricting physical discs in any way.

The damage is done for me. Once they new consoles are out, I am going with a PS4 even though I currently own a 360.

The whole class action suit forfeiture upon acceptance of their XBone ToS pretty much sucks.
