Mass Effect 3 Discussion
This is exactly why it is abhorrent that BioWare/EA pull these stunts - most especially BW, as PC RPG fans put them on the map, and they really labored over their games out of love, not greed. EA made quite a bit off PC gaming too initially, the least they can do now is make multiplatform games that actually give PC and console fans games that match up to each other nicely. (as far as bugs and such go anyway, graphics are obviously going to be better on PC)
I'd be contented just to get demos of EA's PC games to find out if they're just shoddy ports that are better to play on consoles, on equal footing in almost every regard, or maybe, just maybe, actually developed PC games. You can tell if a game is that last one if the graphics settings have a few hundred options
A lot of CE have some kind of figurines in them, at least over here. CE's all have something special about them, or they wouldn't be CE's.
As far as I know, Battlefield doesn't have any "memorable" characters to market figurines on.
If it's not a move, at the very least, influenced by EA, then why didn't BioWare pull any of these kind of obvious money making stunts before being taken over by EA?

I agree that BioWare probably would not have done such a thing back in the day. However, my point still stands: EA BioWare is made up of all their MMO developers that got appropriated to a parent company and lost their own name in the process.
Honestly? BioWare made EA money, EA gave them thrifty three letter titles and promotions in pay grade along with them. Think about that for a second.
Okay, time's up: my point is that since BioWare has gotten so much larger as a result of the other companies being folded into them - they've also gotten much bigger egos, and expect even more money.
If you, (or I)don't like what a company has become we do have the power not to purchase anything from them.
Myself personally will never ever again purchase anything with the Blizzard logo attached to it because of their past ploys.
