    GOOD! Preorder-exclusive content is a bane upon society.
    And people swearing to never preorder a game again because they don't like that their special club isn't special anymore may be doing the right thing for the wrong reason, but if they keep their promise they are MAKING THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE.


    Less hyperbolistic, this is the most hilarious hissyfit I've seen in a long long time.

    Now if only the 2 'Jensen's stories' would be properly integrated into the main game (ala the missing link in the directors cut of human revolution) and made free...

    I'm glad squeenix might have finally realised that segmenting your customer base pisses people off and is probably bad for long term business.

    Muahaha thanks for the heads-up, Gareth! Just checked Steam and ta-da! You've got to untick them all then retick and they'll download.

    Say it with me now: Stop. Pre-ordering. Video games.

    Make pre-order exclusives only limited time exclusives, release them 6 months later. Seems a reasonable balance.

    Be as sarcastic as you like, but never forget that that has actually happened in the past with Prey.

    As for this, Squenix are impressively dumb with their chopping up of games for extra income.
