Well, it is somewhat angry, but the example of them coming out of the blue and pouring milk on his family is sillier. He probably spent full price for the game like the rest of us, and expected... more?

That being said, I do hope that some of these issues make it through to the dev team, Larien is a studio I hold dear because they make the games many do not. But if they continue on the path of simplifying mechanics and dumbing things down, they will become like any other game dev. If that ever happens, I will take my business elsewhere.
