Is casual gaming dead? It is to me. As far as I am concerned all of the people that helped pervert a market, that are responsible for shovelware, the people that don't really care about gaming except as a once in a while diversion and who wouldn't know who Origin was, Psycho Mantis, and never participated in Warthog jumping can get screwed. I hope they get onboard the same fiery bus, put a gallon of gasoline under each arm and smoke a pack of unfiltered Camels after eating a sausage sandwich and head for the nearest cliff.

I played it last night... and I have to say it didn't feel like a casual game at all to me. Great game. Just not casual.

sorry for the nitpick.
