It wasn't me. I bought SimCity (and all the DLC (save the Personality Pack)(on sale 50% off) for my free copy of Dead Space 3. redface.gif

DS3 is actually quite good, if a bit uneven in its presentation and overly gamified puzzle elements. Co-op also lessens the scares by a huge amount, but Carver's lines are hilarious. thumb.gif

Also, I have to wonder about games going 50% off after not even a quarter of being out. Crysis 3, Tomb Raider (55 days...), and Dead Space 3 all 50% off for a week. It's almost as if they are disincentivising pre-orders and day one purchases...

I know after the SimCity debacle, that I am waiting for most games to go down to the $10-15 mark before I jump on them. Save Metro Last Light, I'll probably let that be the exception to the rule.

"These are hard but essential changes as we focus on delivering great games and showing players around the world why to spend their time with us."
At least they're not so egocentric enough to say "...as we focus on continuing to delivering great games...".
heh.

Maybe I'm harsh. But I think those 9,000 would be better off working for a company that gives a damn about the players over their own interests. I don't want them to make games at a net lose, however frisking our wallets and making us pay for 1 day DLC's for content that's required for a story is/has been just dirty practices.
