EA: We’re changing, honest

For two years in a row, EA has won the dubious honour of being voted the “Worst company in America,” because charging people for videogame guns and costumes is a far more heinous crime than repossessing people’s houses. Still, EA has taken it all to heart, and wants to change. (EA, Industry)

I'll believe it when I'll see it. I won't activate my "Hating EA" mode, though, since I'm totally gonna buy Battlefield 4 , Battlefront, Mirror's Edge 2, Dragon Age 3, the next Mass Effect most probably. Damn...

Have fun with the built in microtransactions
ziggurcat  +   805d ago
you mean the ones that don't matter since you get the items in-game anyway, so you can just ignore it all and not cry about it like a 3-year old?
HammockGames  +   805d ago
Microtransactions are a given w/ EA (like Zigg mentioned, I will never pay for 'em).

But I can absolutely picture EA execs whispering "my preeeeecious" to bags of cash.

Only Mirrors Edge2, battlefront and BF4 for me. May be the last BF game I get tho. Looks like a big upgrade from BF3, but It doesnt look that different lol

If it doesn't look any different to you, you need your eyes checked, son.

Love em or hate em. EA games for me I can't live without.

I won't boycott great games like BF4, battlefront, mirror edge 2 only because we hate EA as a company.

If people didn't buy products from companies that mistreated their customers then companies would either treat their customers right, or go bankrupt.

People who buy products from sleazy companies are financially supporting their sleazy behavior!

I dont know why but reading the title and imagining EA saying it, brings more suspicion than comfort I think they are up to no good no way they are going to fool me again like early in this generation.

ea's great in my book, love bf series, mirrors edge, mass effect, dragon age, kingdoms of amalaur, heck, I would say 30% of the games I own (well over 500 on pc alone) are ea games

activision is a far shadier company, and what do they make that's good besides call of duty, which, I personally have been sick of since mw2

the only thing that makes activision acceptable to me is the fact that blizzard owns half of them and blizzard is one of the best game devs on the planet, starcraft 2 is such a perfect multiplayer game its actually a sport, with tons of people making a living playing it.

all in all I think ea are awesome!

One good thing that Acti does is never shutting down servers.

Dear EA; So you have changed have you... have you??

ok here is where you can start, I want a next gen, open world style dead space game that is worthy of being called a horror game. No co-op, No MP, No cheesy action sequences, No DLC skins, weapon skins, etc how about unlocking all that crap when you finish the game as a reward?

if you can make anything close to this happen then we have something to talk about.
ziggurcat  +   805d ago
dead space would be awful as an open world game...
DARK WITNESS  +   805d ago
your prob right, i just want to see if they will can pull it off. when I say open world mind you, I don't just mean it has to be open fields and green grass. It could just be one big Mother 2£^%6king giant arse space station.

All you would need was the ability to explore a bit more. The first dead space was a bit like this, there were areas on the ship you could go back and forth between. it would be the same just open it up more and make it bigger.
ziggurcat  +   805d ago
fair enough.

i thought you meant something more on the lines of fallout/skyrim/GTA/red dead redemption...
DARK WITNESS  +   805d ago
no no... not like that.. think more of a very tight and compact, but massive space ship or station. You would still have all the tight spaces and feeling of claustrophobia, but a lot more places to explore and no limits to where you could go back and forth to. you then have pockets of survivors trying to survive and factions just like it already has with the church and the millitary etc.. you just up the scale and make the missions a bit more dynamic.

I enjoyed DS1 so much it almost felt like it could have been an rpg. following the story of the characters in the holo packs you found.. it was so well set up it could have pulled it off. DS2 and 3 kind of killed it for me though.

I am just dreaming, don't mind me..
Heisenburger  +   805d ago
Right. Are we still charging eighty clams for a new game? Split personality it seems. "We love you. Give us all of your money."

Gollum: We wants it, we needs it. Must have the precious. They stole it from us. Sneaky little hobbitses. Wicked, tricksy, false!

Smeagol: No. Not master!

Gollum: Yes, precious, false! They will cheat you, hurt you, LIE.

Smeagol: Master is our friend!

Gollum: You don't have any friends; nobody likes you!

Smeagol: I'm not listening... I'm not listening...

Gollum: You're a liar and a thief. Smeagol: No!

Maddens Raiders  +   805d ago
I've been playing vidya games for a long, long time. Once upon a time in the early 90's, my friends and I got hooked on EA's John Madden Football and weren't able to stop playing "forever". For a period in time I became a self proclaimed "Madden genius" destroying anyone that dared pick up a controller and challenge me /with any team/. That has all changed.

For years EA were masters at giving us enough carrots and sticks to "think" we were getting a new fresh game every year although miniscule feature upgrades here and there along with flashy yet meaningless gimmicks year over year, proved otherwise. We were stupid gullible kids though and without fail, got caught up in the EA Madden NFL Hype Astrotrain year after year for nearly 15 years, forking money over to a greedy and devious company w/o fail.

I had finally had enough in 2007-2008 when EA completely f***ing lied and got caught in their lies selling gimped software on the PS3 for the exact same price as the disc on the 360 which was totally unacceptable to me and many of my compatriots. I had been pulling away from then company's offerings for some time before that, but this solidified my break away from my once beloved Madden and EA as a whole. This company only cares about two things. Profit and more profit. They've lost a customer for life, not like they care though.

Nope I don't believe it one bit.

EA, we are dropping online passes because we are so awesome

Next gen comes around

EA we are raising next gen game prices

But yet Microsoft and Sony both are staying the same.

Thanks EA!
bjmartynhak  +   805d ago
Well, Sony still have online passes. And it is fucking me with my Vita, since I'm not living in my country.

At least EA dropped the online passes

Actions speak louder than words, I'll believe it I i see it. Sell Bioware's soul back and you might get people back on your side.
