Alice: Madness Returns from @EA (slight update)
So… I restarted the game, thinking I’d try fiddling with the graphics options some more. And suddenly, IT WORKS! I’d still like some response though. The fact that EA’s own support tool is broken worries me. I’m also concerned that the issue that prompted this may reoccur, since I did nothing to fix it (and also nothing to break it).
Alice: Madness Returns from @EA...

Alex: His whole life lead up to, and converged on, that moment.
Graham: Is that... is that a thing you saw?
Kathleen: No, that dark scene was entirely from my own mind.
Alex: I'm not sure that makes it better.
Kathleen: Well, at least there isn't a homeless guy laughing at a dead raccoon somewhere.
Graham: There... there probably is.
Apparently, City Link tried to deliver to me on both the 2nd and the 3rd. Yet, no card was left. Attempting (via the sender) to get it redelivered to work, since the option to collect from depot is USELESS as it requires you to have the card that they HAVEN’T LEFT. Muppets.
