I too would not believe EA if they said 2+2=4. They specifically said you did not need MP in ME3 to get the "best" (lol!!) ending, but you did, until they patched it out. There was a thread of about…

That would mean sales of 10m (with dev getting about 1/3 of RRP on average). Can't picture that unless you have a source other than VGChartz obfuscation/guesswork. Hopefully you aren't confusing…

I think you're seriously missing out JDR13. This is a great piece of old school goodness with exactly the right measure of modern 'streamlining'. I encountered one or two extremely minor bugs, but…
