I'll just make it clear that I'm not defending Megaupload. What I am against though is how this was all done.
To go back to the Canada part; we have legal entities in this country. The fact they forebode letting Canada's enforcement force seize something on Canadian soil is appalling.
Also, to shut down a China based company... from the USA... and also take down all of their internet domains while they have not yet been judged guilty.

It's a 2 year investigation which found that MegaUpload was quite deeply guilty. When 90% of your content is found to be illegal and you have taken no steps towards anti-piracy, there is a reason for your indictment.

Dude, MegaUpload are the bad guys here.

They followed the DMCA takedowns. Youtube is working on the same basis.

The department of Justice (USA) has just seized Megaupload (China based) with 18 of their domains.
The FBI raided their data centers in the Netherlands, Canada and Washington.
Warrants were emitted against Kim Dotcom and his employees. The former and some others were arrested in Auckland, New Zealand. The rest are being tracked.


They are charged with:
- Engaging in a racketeering conspiracy
- Conspiring to commit copyright infringement
- Conspiring to commit money laundering
- and two substantive counts of criminal copyright infringement

« An indictment unsealed today by the Department of Justice claims that MegaUpload has caused the entertainment industries more than $500 million in lost revenue and generated $175 million “in criminal proceeds.” »

I seriously can't stomach how the USA have no respect at all for other countries and just bully everyone. I'm actually ashamed my own government let the FBI raid a data center in Canada.

All this was done without SOPA or PIPA.
There is no word either about what is to happen to the thousands of people who had subscriptions.

I hate Kaiden, always complaining about his biotics hurting him because they're old and going boohoohoo woe is me.
Maybe I misunderstood the character, but now, whenever I see him, that's what I think.

Hell, part of it's just bad VA performances, Farleen would've been an inoffensive, forgettable character otherwise, much like her partner.

I don't get this. It was excellent VA. The character was written as having the most annoying voice. Heck, you could even say that the English VA outdid the Japanese VA.
So yeah, anyone offended should blame whoever wrote the character instead of the VA.

Also, some of the most annoying characters ever, prior to SO4.

The good thing though is you could just not recruit Roger and Peppita (I'm assuming you mean them).
That's already praise worthy if the game allows you to ditch characters you hate. I know I would have loved that option in many a game.

P.S. If you also meant Adray... I would have agreed with you had I not seen his ending. Funny enough, one of the lamest character has one of the best endings.

Played the easiest LoL game ever.
I was Garren top with Ryze also top. We demolished that lane so bad.
After that, we just thugged the rest of the lanes. I almost feel bad for the other team.
