You are my favourite person on this thread.Zeel said:This must be a joke. You're just going to quote me and slap a picture and go 'you have no idea' what you're talking about? it's a fucking picture dude, not the coming of the anti-christ. I don't get what it debunks. Was the dlc developed during the original budget, or wasn't it? Are you claiming otherwise?
Wait; I have the perfect counter argument:
And you let him, it's hilarious.Zeel said:THEN YOU NEED TO STOP QUOTING ME TONY.
You only get "dragged" into it because you come in these arguments go "Zeel is not going to listen!!!" and then you just stay indefinitely waiting for me to respond.
I'm still waiting for my check. They promised me a check!Shawn112 said:Too many paid ea marketing whores here.
No point in bothering.
Fair enough on the first point, but it's still part of the game. Some games have more content than others but they're all around the same price. Anyway, $10 is really disproportionate in the context of the rest of the game.Ukomba said:2. Because it costs money to create content, might as well ask why all dlc isn't free, or why you don't get the collector edition mechanical dog in the standard edition. While you're at it, complain to airlines that your coach ticket doesn't get you first class seats. e_e
Good, now we are getting somewhere. Now, just a question, a small technical issue, no big deal.Zeel said:All evidence points to the latter case. I'm not going to wait until its too late to change it. thank you very much.JamesStone said:You again. Quite nice to see you in Mass Effect 3 forums for a chan... oh, wait. Anyway, I was starting to get worried when you didn't awnser negatively to the last ME3 thread post. So here we go again.Zeel said:Why the are you replying to a post about people who defend it, if you aren't one. What kind of loopy ass shit is that. If you haven't given your opinion on the DLC business. I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT YOU.Tzekelkan said:What the fucking-entitlement-FUCK?
I just don't have any words. I expected a much more rational response to this well written and rational news post. Really? "Sheeple"? REALLY?
God dammit.No independent thought? Jesus fucking shit Christ of helldamnfuck. I'd say that not even reading the post and just mindlessly going with the crowd means not having independent thought. You seem to believe it means doing research, listening to the opinions of others, and then forming your own opinion, whichever it may end up being.Zeel said:Fuck that. Anyone who agrees with this practice is a brainwashed sheep with no independent thought.
You'll probably react with a knee jerk and call me a brainwashed consumerist pig for daring to write this post, because you will have failed to notice that I haven't even yet given my opinion on this Day One DLC business for ME3.
So, if someone argues against badly presented standpoints, they must clearly be, stand for or believe in the opposite side of the argument? Really?
OT: I still rather not make a comment. First, we´ll see if this Prothean appears in-game, and if the only thing that this DLC does is to make him a companion. If so, just extra content Bioware decided to create and hadn't the time to put in the original game. Totally acceptable. If not, and this Prothean is, in fact, a completely new character, people have all the right to get mad. In that case it wouldn't be entitlement, but only in that case.
Actually.Zeel said:-A. False equivalence. Zaeed and Kasumi were some random human characters with little to add to the story. They weren't fucking protheans; with a plethora of knowledge about the reapers, the protheans and their extinction. The difference here is how important the characters are. Do you acknowledge that protheans are important to the overarching story? if So, you can not equate some merc and otaku ***** to the character.
-B. No one would care if the prothean character came free with the purchase of the game, like those two characters. It's almost insulting that EA game removes such lore essential content but if they put it back with a purchase, I wouldn't '*****'.. Not much atleast.
We have confirmation from the developers in the Mass Effect forums.Zeel said:Do you know if he's still in the game or not. Stop claiming this if you have NO EVIDENCE.JamesStone said:No no no, he's telling you that the Prothean, as a squadmate isn't important. The actual character, the one you get anyway from the un-DLC'd game, IS in fact important. The fact that he is a squadmate is only a little extra.Zeel said:Excuse me?SajuukKhar said:And again the Prothean AS A CHARACTER was in development in Nov/Dec, the Prothean AS A SQUADMATE was not until after the game was done. Fact.
The Porhtean isn't important to the story, he only provides his own viewpoint on things already happening. Fact.
The Porthean is not needed to get the full story. Fact
see I can do it to.
In the god damn leaks the Prothean is important. Are you telling me its not important anymore? If so, what lead you to that conclusions.
Second: How important it is is somewhat irrelevant. This is content that builds lore and helps further the story. To remove it from the game and charge more for it is taking advantage of the customers. Everyone plays the mass effect series for the story and characters. To remove a CHARACTER that adds a story is a dick move. Why do you support it.?
And if you are wondering why I'm quoting you so much lately, it's because it's kinda fun seeing you explode in rage every time someone tries to tell you something outside of your preconcived ideias. Such a disgrace for such a smart man (see if you can get that reference).
That post had nothing to do with you.Zeel said:well when Im presenting a good argument and your only defence is: CONSPIRACY. Then yes, you come off as someone on their payroll. I see you took the time to reply to him, wanna give me the same courtesy. Or do you have nothing to contribute and you're just wasting everyones time?Radoh said:Jesus Christ seriously?Shawn112 said:Too many paid ea marketing whores here.
No point in bothering.
People who have been here at The Escapist for years are secretly EA marketers whose sole reason for getting paid is to defend them on an internet forum.
I love you crazy conspiracy nuts so much, I want to shake your hand.
and only that to Anthony87.Leaks suggest it was part of the original game.
DLC says = Get "additional" character and squadmate.
seems pretty damn conclusive to me. Not to mention the whole pattern and trend argument. EA games has been doing this for awhile and they do stand to make a huge profit from it. an additional 20 bucks.
