Empire: Total Ripoff
I'm highly annoyed about Empire: Total War. Last weekend Steam put the game on promo for half price, making me look foolish for having paid in full, and receiving an unplayable game with lots of crashes to desktop. Today they release patch 1.3, plus 14 new units for the game, but the units don't come for free: Steam wants 2.49 Euro for it (probably $2.49 in the US). Yeah, right, the devs didn't have the time to fix crash to desktop bugs earlier, because they were busy adding content they want us to pay extra for. And that's what I've been waiting over two months for? What a ripoff! And I'm not even sure yet the patch fixes all my crash to desktop problems.
