But that DLC was SUPPOSED to be important to the plot:Suncatcher said:ME3 functions, albeit not in the way you might have expected. If you got a defective disc or your download from origin wasn't actually a game? Yeah, that'd entitle you to a refund or replacement. But if that had happened, you wouldn't have gotten to the ending to complain about it. The fact that you bought a game with a shitty ending does not change the fact that it was a functional game, and you bought it. You aren't entitled to a refund any more than I would be if I bought a book and didn't like one of the characters, or bought a car without test driving it and discovered that the seats were uncomfortable, or bought a steak at a five-star restaurant and then decided I hated steak.
As for day one DLC? The current console market dictates that every game be exactly $60, and every DLC be exactly 10$, with very few exceptions. So if a publisher wants to sell a 70$ game that isn't PC exclusive, their only option is to cut a segment. They aren't robbing you, they're setting the price higher and giving you the option to play without certain elements to save money. You're the one who decides whether you want to buy a $70 game, or 86% of a $70 game, or save your money (and honestly the prothean asshole was a lot less that 14% of the game). Continuing to complain about being given that choice makes you sound more spoiled and entitled than any complaint about the ending could.
Finally, saying something happened once does not in any way qualify as proof that it should happen. I can prove people have punched police officers in the past, but that doesn't mean I'm entitled to a free swing.
Where you do have a case is if you claim false advertising. They said from the beginning that the choices you made over the whole series determine what happens in the ending, and that was simply false. But good luck getting anywhere with that.
So they say that all the essencials are in the game........except it isnt, and that was on the day before RELEASE. This people cant keep track of their own lies.
If they had say that they are indeed in a rush and that EA wanted the release to be on Chrismas (because as you know, all the GOOD games are released on Chrismas, right? just ask the makers of Pacman and ET for Atari 2600 and Sonic 2006) then do the episodic thing that even Half Life did (or Walking Dead). After all, they "promised" that only the 3rd game would you see the repercutions and branching of the storyline of all the series (because it would be a coding nightmare if they did it since the first game) they could have realeased the game in a functional state (from beggining to end, and not just what Asura's Wrath and FF XII-2 did with their endings cut to DLC) and then add expansion packs to fill the missing choices that werent taken into account.
But their constant delucion of "we believe we did nothing wrong. I dont see what are you talking about" only makes things worse.
