Y'all know Ross? He's the guy who did Freeman's Mind, and he does some pretty solid game reviews. A channel worth checking out :P

Here's his review of Darkspore that he just posted, though in the end it's more of a continuation of his crusade against EA. Not that I blame him, lol~

I haven't been able to play this game in, oh, two or three years because of Error 73003 (or was it Error Code 3? no point in reinstalling, it's an account-linked issue), so... the news of its impending shutdown is moot to me! Yay?

Seriously, it was a good game with a confused target audience. I'm not saying that just because I bought a physical copy at launch, and played the beta, and... look, I haven't been able to get into an ARPG since, yeah? Weird future is way more fun than grimdirt.

(To be fair, it was the co-op that made it. When the pubs dried up, that was not good.)

This whole thing's been insulting to the people at Maxis who put in good work on this. The projects that get rudely canned don't usually spin on for this long.

self-indulgent screenie of my Wraith:
 

edit: Okay, nostalgia trip's over, now I ought to consider the quixotic call to action. If we can't starve the beast, then become a persistent annoyance. Would that I had more time (or perhaps investment funds) to plow into these things - maybe there's a form letter somewhere...?

Yeah, he does include a form letter template in the description, which can be downloaded here: http://www.accursedfarms.com/downloads/other/letter_to_EA.doc

Oh, haha, I skipped that line and assumed it was an affiliate link. Thanks also for the plaintext.
