It's not so much about the money, it's about the system. I looked at the article and there's no mention of 400 point ($5) cards.



It's important to point this out because everyone is saying…

It's not $5. You can only buy XBox points in increments of $12.50. So, if you only wanted this, you've wasted $7.50 - either by not purchasing anything else or purchasing junk just because you bought…

If they would've let you take sides with the Geth - but you were transformed into a machine in a cut scene and the game ended, would that have been sufficient? Would it have been OK if the difference…

Mass Effect = Space Opera

By including the standard tropes of a Space Opera it is doing exactly what it set out to do. That you wanted more is the product of your own expectations.

It is a…

So, the nature of becoming a large company precludes the possibility of, to borrow a movie term, "prestige" games? I understand the dynamics are different but it seems that a company that is beholden…

They've had the license to make Fallout 3 for at least three years. There might have possibly been a few ideas for a post-apoc game before that but I doubt they could have anything like what you're…
