While we can critique the aggressive tactics used by police, the issue here is a horrible, horrible "prank." Both of the gamers involved should be prosecuted.
How about the one that did the call? The other person was being smart to an awkward question, why would anyone on the internet care what your address is. It's creepy if they do.
Sad isn't it? The right are such massive crybabies it is almost impossible to tell if they are legit or trolls anymore.
Bioware, I'd so like to believe again. ME3 was solid, save for that travesty of an ending... DA2 was an absolute mess, though. Origins was amazing and had so much depth... and then its sequel was a huge step backward.
Less DA2, more DA:O please.
I certainly buy things at launch more rarely - it's frustrating to pay $60 for a game, and then see it go on sale 50% off three-six months later. This is especially galling when release titles are so often broken and need patching over several months in order to make them playable.
Devs can complain about the sales, but it's partially their fault. I have lost trust in most release titles (South Park Stick of Truth was an exception, and it was great at launch, so I actually bought it.) Waiting a few months is a no-brainer win-win. I get a discount and the game is more polished if I wait.
