So I just got Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for the 360 and Lunar: Silver Star Harmony for the PSP, I am anxious to play both.
I have already tried to play Bad Company 2, to very little avail. It seems to me that EA is quite content in their process of hiring starving, third-world economy children to merely hold up antennas constructed out of metal hangers in the air, meanwhile paying them with Riticello pennies and sh*tty Dragon Age DLC in place of bothering to maintain actual servers.
This is the 4th time.
The 4th time that a Battlefield game is nearly completely unplayable at launch due to server issues. It has occurred with Modern Combat for the original Xbox, Bad Company 1, Battlefield 1943, and now Bad Company 2. All 4 games that I’ve also bought either near or right at launch.
Disavowing the fact that it has happened 4 times, EA itself boasted about 3 million people downloading the Bad Company 2 demo, so logically, you’d think they’d assume very high demand and plan accordingly, right? I suppose not.
Never mind the fact that the servers for the demo shut down on Feb 25th in order to “shift support to support the game launch on March 2nd.”
Must not…..perform Renegade action….
