Guys .. Chesus trist..The episodic thing is just replicating disk switch. Why is this such a big deal? This isnt a new thing. Both the .Hack series and Golden Sun and MMO's have done this.
Seriously? People defend this shit? When I buy a product, I get a full product, shocking I know. I'm going to see if I can get money off a car with only two wheels, I can wait a while until I can have the full thing.
If you are happy with an idea which was relevant to a time where tech was not good enough for it to be done on one disk then all cool for you, but at least back then they gave you multiple disks which made up a full product.
I am not going to be a cash cow for these developers/publishers, glad you are happy to be.
