First off, when they put stuff like this in games and say you dont "have" to spend money, you probably will not get the full experience or you will definitely be at disadvantage if you decide that a mere 60$ (pffft) is all you want to spend. Secondly, I was going to say something about Carolyn but I'm not going to be a jerk so nevermind.

I was 5 seconds away from pre-ordering. I watched this, then I closed origin, and uninstalled it.

And this is why I hate math. Oh well it sounds very interesting and I hope it increases the gameplay value thought I doubt it. Again I saw Maxwell in the background or someone who looks like him.

 It sure is BS. But something tells me that we'll be seeing a lot more of this in the near future. Eventually games will deliberately not give you enough ammo in hopes that you will spend REAL world money to buy digital ammo.

@Paoksis Poor Carolyn, every time she does her job, one of you has to come and disrespect her.
