Also waiting for some patches like in CoDW@W was horrible for some of the guys in my clan. Besides its all trivial, I wouldn't miss the chance of playing one of the best games this year over something like that, I'm a gamer I play games, not overlays.
im not gonna declare something as "one of the best games of the year" before it even comes out to us or even before i get a chance to play it. no matter what a game looks like before its released, you never know how good it actually is until it comes out and u try it yourself. and with what EA is pulling, im not buying, even if it does get some kinda "game of the year" shyte.
im a real gamer, i play games and i make my own judgements about whether i think a game is good or not.
