Comment: Abysmal builds (Score 5, Informative) 150 150

As a member of the beta team , I can tell you everyone was pretty damn concerned about the state of the game so close to its release.

It was obvious SOMETHING was wrong given the alpha state of the builds they were giving us.

As it is, you load, hit a button and crash, repeat. I tried to withhold my judgement until they released into open beta, but its just horrible.

Comment: Re:Doesn't sound like Microsoft. (Score 1) 359 359

I am DELIGHTED, that this has come to light. MY father, who works for one of the companies backing an HD format, has been telling about Microsoft's Strategy for about a year or so. Specifically: Backing an opposing format to fuel the fire of HD wars so that they both will fail in the end. Granted, MS never came out and said it, but he is fairly confident tis is their unspoken strategy. Its one thing to push your own format, it quite another to push sabotage the entire ordeal.A pretty awful strategy for everyone but MS really, the consumer really loses out.

Have you ever noticed that the people who are always trying to tell you `there's a time for work and a time for play' never find the time for play?

Working...
