People ARE discussing the game, they're discussing what they don't like about it.
Those who do like the game are free to start whatever character or strategy debates/discussions they want.
The problem is, we can't start making threads for people who do and people who don't like something.
Look at how polarizing BlazBlue is, there are many here who hate it with a passion and some who really like it, but it all falls under the same banner.
While I completely agree that pissy arguments and bitching should stop and complaints need to be constructive, I bought SFxT on 360 and it has broken bugs online and such that are beyond belief, bugs that have had no confirmed fix yet.
As such, I feel ripped off and conned, this, ON TOP of all the DLC controversy is a big issue, so negative or not, it needs to be discussed.
I'm not siding for or against anyone, and I fully back M_Cs call to stop bitchy comments and pissy one-line arguments. M_C is generous enough to call it "passive-aggressive" where as I call some of it straight up trolling.
But, it is a fact, not opinion, that the game has actual technical faults, and as such these issues should be brought to the forefront, especially for those who arent lucky enough to get games for dirt cheap (as I do) and want their $60 or whatever they spent justifying.
As an important addendum, I LIKE SFxT, I like its visuals, love its roster and think Capcom did a pretty good job at integrating two completely different game styles, I think the game is fun to play, especially in local VS.
But that fun, for me, is tainted by the BS, the unbearable sound bug, the 360s "missing mode" and smaller roster, the piss-poor "Pay to win" gem system and the aforementioned DLC fiasco, which is possibly the most controversial since DLC began.
All that stuff takes precedence over the good points, as it comes across as crooked and sneaky.
No-one would be bitching if these problems didnt exist, well, ok, they would, because people bitch about anything but it probably wouldnt be so spiteful and vitrioled.
Essentially, Capcom are the reason I'm having problems with this game, their business model and their current habit of releasing buggy games have tainted what was for me, a much anticipated release.
TL/DR: I agree, It is a shame this thread is so negative, but Capcom shouldnt have F****d over people's wallets and shouldn't have put out a game that was broken as hell (I don't mean that in an EVO way, but in an actual "faulty game" way)
