I don't think people have realized that EA, as a gaming company, has really turned things around in terms of what they provide for the consumer and the support they have for them. This company isn't nearly the "evil gaming corporation" that it used to be. They've taken great strides to shed that image and other companies, like Ubisoft and Activision, have taken on that moniker without anyone realizing it. They're too hung up on how EA used to be.

Getting a good feeling that Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition will be free next month. Especially after that 9 dollar sale from earlier in July.

Let's be extremely f'ing real here. The reason this is getting such a negative backlash is because we ALL know that this game, from inception, was NEVER meant to be a Metroid game. It's something they developed, and along the line said, "You know, this project might not have enough legs to sell on its own. So let's attach a franchise tag to it so it will sell."

I seem to recall something from my childhood that Nintendo did using the same tactics, it was called "Super Mario Bros. 2".

Fans aren't stupid. We know a sham when we see it. This project was conceived without a Metroid foundation.

@Blk_Mage_Ctype: It was released in February, 2014 on Xbox One first. Meaning that the importance of this reveal will mean that it will likely see a Spring 2016 release. A 2 year development cycle that will likely, again, be a timed exclusive for the Xbox One and TBD on PS4/PC (PS3 will likely not see it)

Is that enough critical thinking for you, or do you need me to break it down even further, Barney-style? I can do this because it seems that you don't want to do any critical thinking or research for yourself. Typical gamer mentality, nowadays.

@DemannameD: Interesting, it's still available for pre-order. Word was that it's slated for the fall. Wouldn't surprise me that it's not happening, but it hasn't been officially canceled.

@DemannameD: Wait, MKX is canceled for the 360 and PS3?

@Spartan-1657 : It's no use. People will make up their minds even if they are ill-informed. Only an idiot would assume that the basic 60 dollar retail game is not a complete experience.

It's like the public is just getting dumber by the day. That or gamers are more spoiled and entitled than ever.

@profchrisk: You keep telling yourself that GameStop hurts the industry. Why not do some in-depth research instead of what you superficially see on the outside? If you woke up tomorrow and GameStop was out of business and shut down their 7000 stores, the gaming market in the US would suffer a severe blow and would take years to recover.

I seriously don't think people realize how much GameStop actually DOES for the industry instead of focusing on the fact that they don't get 90% of their money back on trade.
