    Um, no I don't. Stop making assumptions about my opinions and thought process. Not that I owe you any explanations, but I was actually glad that Mass Effect went to the PS3 because one of my best friends is a strictly Playstation gamer and I was finally able to talk with her about one of my favourite series.

    And your point is?

    Your entire post was based on your inaccurate assumption that I was against multi-platform games, as if I haven't made countless posts in the past three days underlining my feelings toward the ROTTR situation.

    Thank you for giving me a migraine at 8am.

Crystal Dynamics gets nothing. They lose respect, trust, confidence, reputation. Well, they get money. Less money than what they could make by themselves if they didn't act like such jerks. What Microsoft has to offer to the franchise is corporate prostitution.
    Agreed. I was gearing up to buy the inevitable collectors edition for PS4, but now... even if it comes to PS4, I'll wait and buy it used so they don't see a cent from me. The comic series I was reading... done. The novel I was looking forward to buying... not happening. I'm dropping any support for Crystal Dynamics, Eidos and Square.

    I just don't get who at CD thought this was a good idea and how they could not be prepared to say how long the duration was for. If it wasn't for the fans putting pressure on MS I don't think we would have even found out the deal was timed. CD have certainly acted poorly over this.

    It was kinda weird how the company always made the TR community a priority before though with this they vanished. Maybe the marketing people decided that the TR community didnt matter because they would just buy the games anyways? Those marketing people seem to do a bad job, not one was anywhere within the community, a game with no community, meh they die, and doubt anyone wants this series to go away especially the company making it.

    Since Megan left there hasn't been much of a visible presence here. Maybe that will change....

    Of course having a CM makes a huge difference. They are the liaisons between the company and the fans. Without a CM, there is naturally more 'radio silence'. I'm sure things will improve once the new CM is installed

    Couldnt the voice actor for Lara Croft be the CM so CL can be CM? Looking at her IMDB she doesnt seem to busy but that is kinda the role like a brand spokesman like the wendys girl right? Noone would care more about the future of the franchise than someone who needs it to earn a living? It would be a good match maybe?

    <---Holds up sign CL for CM!

    The role of CM is much more than just being a spokesperson. It is a full time job, and Camilla wouldn't get to any acting if she were CM

    It's a wonderful choice to have Meagan back and so just possibly things could get better. I am not so surprised by the radio silence as when CD tried to tell us things but be all cryptic about it so they weren't actually telling us things, it was just getting them in deeper hot water.
