This is actually old school. Companies used to handle your mortgage on a move, most don't even think of it now. For example my company use to, if we went out of business during that period, I wonder if the same fate would have happened? The company is paying the mortgage until it sells. They go out of business they stop paying and now you know exactly what the score is, if they don't it just all magically happens. Oh this sucks no doubt, but I wonder if it is all that different then what a lot of companies used to do with relo's? Could also have cost them a pretty penny and bit part of their collapse.

Like that time I got to the 3rd or 4th area and had about a million gold and then some guy gives me a quest to polish his silver and sell it for 50g if I do? w00t! Or that time I took down that boss and got an item that was worse than the one I crafted 20 levels ago? Like that time I had to turn my controller upside-down just to get the smallest amount of challenge out of combat? The guy from My Left Foot could rock Amalur on Hard for fucks sake.

This is unfortunate. As many have said, I wouldn't be so aloof with my finances.

Well, with $100 million from the taxpayers, who's counting cost? I'm sure the taxpayers are happy the governor's been investing their money for them... and losing all of it.

What the eff? Who trusts someone else to oversee the sale of a home? I wouldn't.
Agreed. I'm having a hard time being sympathetic. What about all the employees who weren't stupid? We don't hear about them.

Totally agree. I mean it's shitty situation, but I would never trust something like that to my employer. No matter who it was. That's just asking for trouble.

Yup. The gameplay was good if a bit easy. The story was boring and after awhile I just skipped the all the talkly bits.

What bloody idiot would let their employer sell their home!?! If you aren't at the close yourself, you deserve to get whatever happens to you. Besides, I'm sure some of these people got a cash out (or conversely had to pay cash in). If you didn't get a check or had to deliver one to the agent acting on your behalf, I'd sure as hell be asking some questions.

I liked KoA. It was too easy, though. I want a really hard mode.

I'd do it only if the employer bought the house from me! Haha. Let them sell it on their own liability.

Christ, one mortgage is bad enough in Obama's shitty economy. I can't even begin to imagine the hell of having two to pay for.
