As I said, FUCK MICROSOFT and this wonderful defense they're doing of PC Gaming.
There was no way in hell Ensemble wasn't profitable for them, and they should have learned from EA that when you buy developers and you destroy their way of work, they don't release the same quality.
Ensemble was one of the best developers out there, AoE2 was almost perfection. It was a pity that they sold the shop to Microsoft. For a while, everything seemed to be ok, but when Microsoft put a gun to their head and forced them to develop Halo Wars, I knew the end was coming.
In the end, Microsoft keeps damaging PC, PC gamers, PC developers and whatever that has anything to do with the PC. Everything goes for the money?.
