At least your angry comments are so adequately written and full of temperance, Val.
I really feel for the guy, though I don't understand how you can appreciate Hicks' return on the back of this embarrassing non-story.
I haven't even entered that part of my brain where I'm seriously contemplating Hicks being alive, because the game shoved it in my face in such a blatantly idiotic way that the plot isn't even a plot.
It doesn't have any of the qualifications of a real plot, no research, no attempt to make any sense or fit in in the universe in any way, and barely any cohesion with its own mess of rushed and impossible events. I mean it's sub-AvP level for how little sense it makes and how hard it charges forward narratively, fueled by this absolutely contrived nonsense.
Why would you respect a story like that, when there are so many writers who work their ass off and bend over backwards to make their stories plausible, coherent, etc...
No thanks dude, it's okay to like the game.. but be honest.
Bad is bad is bad is bad is bad, even though I love the mp. The story is the definition of how you insult fans.
Suspension of disbelief doesn't even begin to cover it. A:CM wants us to practice "suspension of intelligence" in order to enjoy this.
