2013 in Games: Year of the Corporate Snake

Christopher Erb at VGU.TV takes a look at the various bald-faced lies doled out by the games industry so far this year, which is quickly turning into a whirlwind of denial, spin, and customer derision. (Adam Orth, Aliens: Colonial Marines, EA, Gearbox Software, Industry, Microsoft, Randy Pitchford, SimCity)

This is not a gaming industry problem so much as it is an across the board problem with corporate business practices itself. Companies in the video game industry are doing what Wal Mart, Bank of America and so many others do, which is cheat the system as much as possible then lie and deny when they're caught.

True, but last year saw some reasonable capitulations here and there to fan demands. This year, there's been little to no attempt at reparations in most of the big snafus.
