Yeah...but did they do it honestly....or fraudulently on broken promises?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

You get me once, shame on you. You get me twice.....shame on me. I'll need a demo of 6 before I'll lay one penny on it and if I can't get that then I'll just rent it. I'm not getting ripped off 60 bucks again. Those days are over, rover!

Did you keep the receipt for the game? No? You could've gotten 60 bucks back, Jack.

It probably will someday.

 

The thing with AAA games breaking records,  it's nothing new.  

 

Not endorsing it,  Hope COD dies in a fire.
