A voice from the past here ...
Has Myth 3 been released?
I just saw it in a store in the UK.
Unless you want to encourage game publishers to continue pushing
unfinished titles out the door to make their company financials
Be a responsible capitalist. Don't buy Myth 3. Encourage
everyone you know to not buy Myth 3.
Fine and dandy. But if/when the patch is released, and if/when
most of the bugs are fixed, *then* buy it. Hopefully, the
publisher's quarter sucks, but they get the message that the
consuming (spending) public want a bug-free product (or at least
English food still blows chunks (or will cause a normal human to
blow chunks). However, the English themselves are beginning to
eat better food.
It is WRONG for a company to intentionally release a product
that does not do what it claims. In the real world, we call that
"fraud". Fraud is a felony. Fraud perpetrated across
state lines in the United States is called
"racketeering". People get locked in small rooms for
some length of time when it is proven that they perpetrate such
things in the real world.
Somehow, in the world of computers, we call these things
"status quo". Well, not me, not any more.
I will not buy another piece of computer software until I am
reasonably certain that it is what it says it is, and does what
it purports to do. I'm not calling myself better or worse than
anyone else. This is a decision I've come to myself after being
repeatedly sodomized by purveyors of software fraud.
Do what you want with your money, but for the sake of software
users everywhere, I encourage you to be responsible with your
money. Giving it to companies that perpetrate fraud will only
encourage more of the same. If there's money to be had, you can
bet that someone somewhere will rise to the challenge and do
their level best to separate you from yours. With no downside,
they're even more likely to do so.
English food gets a bad rap because it's always compared to
French cuisine. Traditional English food can't hold a candle to
the frogs in terms of sophistication, but it's outstanding when
done well. It's comfort food, essentially. A good crown roast of
beef with Yorkshire pudding, horseradish sauce and some boiled
potatoes can be an epiphany if it's done right. Even bubble and
squeek, try and find something better (well, maybe curry) after
a long weekend. English cheeses are some of the best in the
world, particularly when combined with good bread and some good
sausage or smoked meats -- both of which the English excel at.
All I'm saying is that in my fairly limited (London a half dozen
times) experience, English food is very much underrated. Hell,
even the pub lunch I had a decade ago was pretty good.
Oh, and there were many pretty womens in London. Many. I wept
for the pretty womens.
