There is no "deedle de deet" sound when I touch it. Nothing. It is dead as a doornail. For $80, I should be getting a fully-functional combadge. Has anyone else gotten theirs to work?
heck for that price it could have at least had blue tooth in it to use with my I-Phone.

That's it!!!!!! I'm right now calling Walmart and buying a load of dylithium tricobalt declathium batteries from them because I refuse to be forced to grind in MMO's! Not cool, very not cool, ATARI/Cryptic!


This post is sarcastic on purpose, reader be warned!

Oh, the other cadets with red onions would make fun of us, but they got their comeuppance when a new kid walked in with a vidalia tied to his belt!
LMAO! This is priceless!

Hey nobody said they were to scale! Seriously though, It isn't that hard to make a real communicator pin with a blue tooth connection. Just get a blue tooth wireless microphone and modify it behind the pin. Then use a blue tooth capable device like your phone to talk to other people.

I lol'd, and apparently "I lol'd" is not a long enough message so this is filler.

I'm planning on pursuing legal action as well.

I might make 4 or 5 complaint threads with my sock accounts, then I might say I cancelled my preorder, even though I already bought the damn game.
