Technically, you're paying for a load of loot from the store. They aren't charging you money for early access to a free game (per se).
Can you play without this purchase? No , ergo you are paying for the game.
They should have just let it die after Inquisition. I bet he is writing great quest about collecting all the crystals you find ;P
They are still working within the game's rules though, even if they are unintended. (I agree with you that cheating should invalidate a speed run, though. If they had used a cheat code instead of the recycling glitch, I'd be dismissing this, too.)
I'm pretty certain that "real" cheating does indeed invalidate a speed run. I'm not saying that speed runs are dumb and I know that exploiting the game (even glitches) are allowed. I just don't enjoy those kind of runs.
Considering they are the ones who did the work to put the modding tools in the game, I don't that has anything to do with it.
Modding tools or QA tools?
Exactly. And I think Bioware are suffering from butting up against the Uncanny Valley. I'm also very interested to see what CDProject are doing for Cyberpunk 2077. They are the only other people I can think of that are doing facial animation at this detail and frequency.
Agreed -- but their mistake was not grappling with it.
