They ruined a marvelous series with their greedy plans. Now they are living the justified hate to them an the game.

We are "boiling frogs". "A fool and his money are soon parted." I could go on. Where's the actual value? If any of us really wanted to bypass playing a game - you know, the actual reason for buying a game - simple FREE cheat codes used to bring all of us "I work hard and have a life" gamers time saving unlocks just fine before. Not seeing the difference except now they want to charge for cheats.

No thanks. I'll go to Vegas if money is burning a hole in my pocket and I hate Vegas. At least I can get a half a buzz on free watered down scotch while I throw away my money into the ether.

EDIT: spelling
