@ anon 14:18completely agree, i think it is bullsh*t what ea brings out (army of two was the latest i bought and god it was sh*t). However battlefield series arn't too bad, so i can give them that.

The only thing ea have done right recently was publishing crysis. And i am pretty sure that somehow they will eventually f**k that up. And to id: nothing of your will be cutting edge, because you are crippling all your best efforts by making it a console game. My calculator is faster than an xbox 360.

um even if there just the publisher they have a huge impact. they say this can tell the dev's just what to do, Plus they can make the game get rushed. and as bad as EA is ya... Atari is way way worse

[quote]Ihy id why make a deal with the devil? :'([/quote]It's debatable their entire business model is based on deals with the Devil. ;) They have had good success with him in the past, they just might pull this one off too. ;)

Why!? I PASSIONATELY hate ea. Look, they don't even deserve caps. They have managed to destroy every game they ever got their hands on. Forcing them out the door after a quick but heavy polishing to walk like a shiny-faced zombie down the sh*t encrusted streets that is ea's domain on this earth. Why won't they just die? They have enough money by now to go and build a fortress of doom (no pun, really) in some kind of hell from the money of the poor souls who spent money on their horrible games.
