Yep. I saw it.

Doesn't change a thing. He wants a resolution. A phone call will lead to one. Thus, he should make a phone call. If he cannot, he surely has someone in the US (or whatever region the system was purchased from) that could place the call on his behalf.

It's not difficult. The first answer to "I want something..." should be "So ask for it.", and not "Chargeback! Email carpet bomb! Consumerist!"

Over the years, living in space has forced astronauts to make a few concessions to things you would not give a second thought about when staying at a hotel/motel.

+ - EA: No patches, no support for a 5-month-old game

Submitted by Xyston
Xyston (666) writes "It's been five months since the release of EA's Rise of the Witch-King, and fans who were hoping for a patch were let down again this month when the promised patch never materialized. The game, which has been plagued by bugs, cheats and imbalances since its late November release, has become the source of frustration for gamers at several fan communities. While EA programmers admit they've neglected the game in favor of Command & Conquer 3, their last official statement was that a patch "should" have been available weeks ago. Gamers are still waiting."
