...and with good reason, the speeder looks like a futuristic lawnmower with "Life Day" (Christmas) lights. I know a fair number of Full Sail graduates who would be embarassed to put such a crappy piece of animation into the game, much less monetize it. I swear, you could put "Toro" on the grill and no one would be surprised.

Allison, I love you, but it appears you and your bosses seem to think we are cattle with wallets. It's all good when a "secret" leads to hot new content, but when the "secret" makes a wet, disgusting sound when it hits the sidewalk, that qualifies as both a PR and developmental failure.

Not spending a dime until we get some specifics.

Many people asking about SGRA's in that thread. I will add my voice shortly, but I had to scream about Hickman and the Life Day speeder. Utterly amateurish crap.

... That's just plain lazy, on top of rude.
And here I had just thought that they had deleted it, which wouldn't have surprised me.

Heh I knew that post of mine wouldn't fly. Then an e-mail from BW showed up in my inbox... just a plug for the expansion - somehow, I remain without infraction. I'm that fine balance of disgruntled and reasonable, I guess.

No email. Bioware must hate me.

Plus side: yay, no spam!

Well, honestly, the really rude part is that they haven't answered us. They really could.

I really would like to play something that is LGBT inclusive or excludes all romance options.

Honestly, if they excluded all romance options at this stage I'd quit. Not for lack of romance options, really; simply because there's no good reason for them to uproot the romance system that's there when they can simply become LGBT-inclusive which, really, should have happened from word go anyway.

Bioware doesn't have manners. If this were a dinner party they'd have been kicked out before the pre-dinner cheeses were even finished.

The only thing we can really do is continue to raise the profile of this and get the whispers going. They're never going to answer us because that means they have to admit to making the decision to discriminate against the LGBT positive community during development, and that goes against their "look at us, we're amazing *bats eyelashes*" stance.

Oh, I kind of wrote that badly. I meant that I'd move on somewhere. Honestly, I'd rather they included SGRA's, but if they don't, then I'll go somewhere else where they either have no romances or have SGRAs.

Well...if they don't give me an answer soon, I'll be writing an article about BioWare Austin being discriminatory, and how one bad title undermines all the good work BioWare's done with The Sims and other games.

The Sims is a (former) Maxis and (current) The Sims Studio game series.
