I'm pretty sure doing a good job and setting himself up for more work with EA (and anyone else, for that matter) would have been more profitable. Now, he looks a bit of a berk, and no-one would touch him with a bargepole if they wanted someone to present for them.
It sounds like the thief spoke to the wrong people. He should have threatened gamers that he would release the stuff, unless they paid him not to. ;)
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.
Steam being puritan? They have The Witcher 3...
