Aeropause writer Joe Haygood takes a look at the Activision-Vivendi merger and ponders the idea of Activision becoming the new Electronic Arts of the gaming world.
Well with them saying that Guitar Hero and Call of Duty are going to be a yearly thing... it's possible
hopefully they dont s$it on their games like what EA does.
Ubisoft is the new EA, with releasing buggy software like Assassin's Creed and all that.
I agree with a new Guitar hero every year but a new COD every will probally result in a sh1t game ie... COD3
Hmmm... still got some work to do.
Now if they'd signed an exclusive deal with the RIAA to have full rights to all existing music for future Guitar Hero games, I'd say they were there...
...are always bad for the gamer. just look at ea, they're going down the drain with their crappy games.
All too right! GeOW (EPIC), Halo3 (Bungie), Uncharted (ND), Ratchet (In), Mass Effect (Bioware). Short list of the top titles the past year, are all from smaller companies that worked on these titles versue the other hundred that were average, or just good (I realize there are a few suggestion, just the ave. of games that come out).
I don´t mind having a new COD every year... Unless they begin reusing the same gameplay mechanics and graphics, adding features like modding your soldier, or pimp your gun, and star calling the games "Call of Duty: Pimp your soldier" or the kind...
Only difference is their games don't suck nor buy companies that make good games and make em suck.
Save for rockband, crysis, spore and a few other games.
Activision + Blizzard/Vivendi VS EA + Ubisoft
Who'll win? And what will THQ do to compete? Will they join Take two? Will SEGA merge with Konami sooner than we think? ;)
These two companys will distroy EA
