I'll admit that i and many others may have been jumping the gun a bit here, letting our opinion be so easily influenced by some selected images and gameplay footage... i guess that the game may still be awesome, and that those parts are not enough to judge the whole game.
@Gratua Cuun: Well yeah, that whole business with her being the responsible for this whole situation did sound a bit too much; i don't think she's actually the reason for it, but, without pointing fingers at anyone, the game IS looking kinda bad, based on what we've seen so far, no?
Just too bad she was only with the company for a year and joined after the game was nearly finalized - but YES! Don't focus on the company. Don't focus on the developer - let's target one woman for cosplaying too much and RUINING our animations -rolls eyes-
I liked the drama about that fake lead animator. Which people defended by saying "don't attack ONE person, even if she were lead."
Like, if we blame a CEO for a company, a prime minister for a cabinet, then YES, blame a LEAD animator for crappy animation.
@Elyseon: As games focus more on the most expensive graphics, yeah gameplay is coming second.
It wouldnt have too if they just skimped on the graphics budget a bit I mean look at what we got 10 years ago and compare it to now, was that worth a couple of million of dollars?
@Zacsi: Dude, from what i'v seen so far, the game looks absolutely disappointing... i mean, what the hell? what happened? aren't they a multimillionaire company? Coldn't they hire the best of the best?
I gotta say that this comic's point would be better served as him getting a drink, saying it's a regular. hand him the special straw, and demand 20 more dollars. as it is the metaphor makes it sound like ME:A has nothing in it.

calling them "Collector Addon" or "Collector Merchandise Pack" instead of "Collector Edition" would solve some problems :P
I agree on the futility of this kinda stuff. No doubt, however, that they want you to buy the digital version of the game AND the collector's edition. This way they save a lot of money by not printing the physical copies AND sell you the full price anyways.
