John Carmack, co-founder of id Software, has said that before talking with EA Partners, he assumed the publisher was responsible for destroying small development studios.
A kinder gentler borg they now take you to a dinner and movie before ravaging you in bed.
I wanted to strangle someone when I saw the EA logo on the RAGE teaser trailer...
"[Carmack] assumed the publisher was responsible for destroying small development studios." And he was completely correct in that assumption.
Lol and carmack is right , it just wont destroy big entities such as valve , bioware , and ID ... but dont expect me to believe such BS for smaller ones ... Just remember quite recently , Ea chicago ... already under the new management .
As brilliant as Carmack is technically, I sometimes wonder about his business saavy and skills away from the keyboard. I'm not saying his assumptions about EA are wrong, but in general some of the decisions id makes (whether by Carmack or the company as a whole) tend to be either very innovative or very much a head scratcher. Id had the gaming world by the short and curlies during its heydey but is no longer top dog.
Valve sucks. Thats it.
Without Steam, PC gaming would really be in pieces. Sure, Valve take bloody ages for a game to come out, but it's usually worth it.
Somehow, whenever I read Valve and EA in one sentence, I have this taste of puke in my mouth. I wonder why...
Well the one nice thing about id in comparison to Valve is that they're building their own PS3 version and it looks like they've been putting a lot of effort into getting it to run with the same performance numbers as the PC and 360 versions. PS: Don't eat vomit. It's bad for your teef.
Valve and id rule gaming as we know it. Eat sh1t.
Love the headline. too bad Caramack also talked to Crytek for advice. but whatever....the hate towards VALVe will never end on this site.
