Gil’s been visiting us quite often this summer – at least three times if I can remember correctly. There was something a bit odd about his latest one. To me, at least, it seemed a bit rushed. Aside from the object choices (the inclusion of a cash object which hasn’t really been included in similar deals), the time of the update was a bit strange. Typically, we usually receive updates, including Gil deals, between 3 – 5 PM GMT. We got this deal at around 10 PM.
My theory is that EA had something ready last week but due to some kind of technical or development issue it was pulled at the last minute and EA put out the Gil deal as a last minute replacement. Overall, if we don’t get something, anything other then a Gil deal, this week, I will be very, very surprised.
