Relax, Star Wars Is In Good Hands

GamingUnion.net: "Recently we told you that EA acquired the video game license for the Star Wars franchise. While reactions have been mixed, I can't help but feel excited. While it's become "cool" to hate EA, you can't deny that they are a very capable company that just may make our dreams a reality." (3DS, EA, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Star Wars, Wii U, Xbox 360)

If anyone can salvage 1313, it's Peter Moore.

Good developers, bad publisher. EA always wants to reach the highest level of potential buyers, which means their games are often dumbed down, and not faithful to the audience.

And eventually good developers become bad developers, i.e. Maxis.

No it's not in good hands . I pexct the same , plenty of bad games , and a few occasional games ... with nickel dime dlc schemes on top as a side dish .

I certainly wasnt expecting to paying for a light saber color , and now i totally see it .

Oh well as long as EA doesnt get marvel too after the clusterf*ck that activision already is with it , i'm fine .

Agreed. IMO it WAS in good hands with Lucasarts but Disney had to go and shut them down.

You mean the same hands that made a mess of the Dragon Age and Mass Effect franchises? No, I don't think so.

Good hands, my ass. Developers sure, but with EA as the publisher? Forget it. The various IPs they've killed off are reason enough for skepticism.

So the company voted "worst company in America" is considered good hands?
mephman  +   663d ago
Better hands that LucasArts - what was the last good game they actually made?
r40k213  +   662d ago
I thought The Force Unleashed series was pretty good.
CourierSix  +   662d ago
I agree, bad publisher, good developer. Lets all just pray EA doesn't ruin this opportunity they've been given.

Force unleashed was phenominal. Force unleashed 2 not so much.

Oh Yeah, Star Wars in the hands of Disney and EA, what could go wrong?
Although, in fairness, Lucasarts made a right hash of anything Star Wars related post 80's.
