2015 is EA’s year - If they don’t stuff it up

MWEB GameZone writes: 2015 could be the year EA works it’s way back into the good graces of consumers. Their performance over the Christmas/New Year period has been stellar and their line-up for 2015 looks very promising. What could go wrong?

So with free-to-start they give, but on the other hand they take. Then there's the upcoming Battlefield: Hardline launch, if that fails like BF4, then I doubt anything else will matter.

I'm hoping EA will be smart enough to see the error of their ways. They've been really good last year, barring DKM, perhaps they can keep it going.

EA cant work there way into peoples like list,not matter how much ubisoft screw up,because at end of it all EA started it all imo

with season pass,dlc,online passes,selling shortcuts.

i will always hate EA for everything they have supported thats to milk gamers even more.

CloudRap3465d ago

Ubisoft is the new EA so they dont have much to worry about as long as Hardline and Battlefront work at launch.

Sillicur3465d ago

If EA can pull it off, all the more power to them. I still have my doubts, but i think at least they wont be nominated as the worst company in the US this year :)

linkenski3465d ago

Mass Effect 4 isn't out this year. 2016 will be the year to prove EA doesn't have an iron-grip on their developers and their products aren't rushed.

What's even out this year? FIFA 16? Battlefield Hardline? I'm not really feeling the hype.

Actually 2015 should be a slow year for them. But they really need to crank out a beefy DA:Inquisition DLC though. Something similar to the Origins: Awakening DLC would be nice.

Why QA a game when the general public do it now....

They will rehire cheaper labor during the restructuring. The stupid thing is that they are struggling and the first thing they do is lower the quality.

Debunked: Blowing On Nintendo Game Cartridges Never Worked

We have all been there! Blowing on a Nintendo video game cartridge when the game we were playing just would not launch or appeared to be glitching.

I mean it worked for me. Regardless if it was just a poor connection between the cartridge and the console or some random bug that was preventing the game from loading properly, the placebo effect of knowing your breath is what fixed the game is dead set in the minds of plenty of 80s gamers.

Blow on the game and then use something about hte thickness of a deck of cards in my case it a was plastic sport card holder of about 20 cards that would keep the mechnaism all the eway down. Ahh and the famous left to right shuffle hoping the contact would touch.

Stupid Zoomer tries to debunk a technique used successfully by millions of people over many years.

Look out for they/them’s next article ‘DEBUNKED! Why the Xbox 360 towel trick is all a myth’.

It did work, not only Nintendo but sega genesis and saturn as well

Seraphim5d ago (Edited 5d ago )

I mean, sure it worked, but did it work every single time? If the answer is yes then you were probably just lucky, or more likely, not remembering correctly. Regardless, it did work be that luck or scientific reasons.

I literally have the same nes from when i was a kid and it still works doing these things. Played on multiple nes consoels when i was a kid always did the same thing and it would always work eventually. PLayed a ton of tecmo bowl with on diff consoles we all did the same thing to get the contacts to register.

Clearing the dust from inside the cartridge by blowing on it did work.

Perhaps YOU are unfamiliar with how easily dust can disrupt electronics, but entire generations of gamers and computer users are.

DodoDojo5d ago

Yup. The pins would get dirty and dusty, anyone that's cleaned a game with a q tip knows that. Blowing the cartridge out would had have to helped.

Relientk776d ago

It worked for me and my cartridges. So I refuse to believe it's just a myth

shinoff21836d ago

It definitely works. They can go on and on about how it didn't but I was there for 100s of games. It was pretty damn common.

Wretchedstain5d ago

The salt in your saliva is conductive

romulus235d ago

Pretty sure people were supposed to blow on the cartridge not hawk tuah on it.
