Was Winter not the protagonist of ACM? Were you not, perhaps, a bit invested (at one time) in one of the biggest flop games in years?
No shame in getting your hopes up for a good game like many of us did and being disappointed, but your attitude re: this game seems a bit sour grapes, is all I'm saying.
I partially did it for ACM. Way before we were allowed to see any "proper" ACM footage. It was shortly after the announce I believe and by that time I didn't have 1k posts so I was able to change my username whenever I wanted to. Then I passed 1k posts and I realized I can no longer change my name so I got stuck with this one. I don't mind it really. My nickname is Hicks since I was in the high school. I am Hicks in Steam, Evolve, Xfire, Playfire, Xbox Live (no longer active), etc. But here there was already an established user with that name and I prefer to use a unique name, rather than using *name123412412521* or *name____* and stuff like that. So yeah, you see where I am coming from.
In the end - choose your nickname wisely
As I said, once you pass 1k posts you can no longer change it. I am not sure if the subscribers can do that after 1k posts though.
