She would go perfectly in a horrible MK movie.

Paytaa2745d ago

It would probably be worse than MK: Annihilation.

Still have a soft spot for the original Mortal Kombat film though. Must have rented that from Blockbuster at least 15 times when I was a kid.

The first one was true to mortal Lombard universe

Kalebninja2746d ago

Im not a fan of MK but all Megan Fox does is ruin movies, she didn't even try to play a decent April O'Neill.

SaveFerris2745d ago

I think she'd make a good Mileena instead.

OldGuyStillGaming2745d ago

Having kids does add years to anyone and everyone

If you don't have any, you'll see for yourself when the time comes

nveenio2745d ago

I have three. People still think my 30+year-old wife is 18. It doesn't affect everyone.

That's all that plastic surgery she's had done.

rezzah2745d ago

She did have plastic surgery done on her face, so don't be surprised if she doesn't look human anymore lol.

But there's layoffs all over. Shop I work at just laid off the entire 3rd shift. We make plastic connectors that go inside electronics. All these companies over ordered during covid cause no one really knew wtf was going on. So we were running 12 to 13 presses now down to 4 if lucky. My point is ismts not just video games. I feel bad for people who've been laid off but I feel worse for people that were machine operators, cashiers, etc.

That’s a clear reason why the industry YOURE in is suffering, not an industry where some companies are experiencing record breaking sales and still laying off. This isnt about you.

Shin

Issue is gaming revenue and profits are at all time high so executives getting huge bonuses yet those actually doing the work get laid off

I swear only 1 disagreeing with u is the already entitled rich snobs who happen to be on here

If they upsized for an influx of order than it was never going to be sustained.

There's a lot of companies that are making big profits and still cutting staff, I don't even have enough co-workers to run the departments at the company I work at, and it's a dumpster fire, but they're making bank.

@neutralgamer1992,

I'm sure I'll have someone disagree with me, but no one is worth millions/tens of millions of dollars and bonus on top of that, I suspect a lot of companies are becoming top heavy, instead of spending money on having people on the bottom that actually ensure the business operates on a day to day basis.

With the industry giants making record profits, layoffs are simply greed. You can't have profits without employees. It is interesting that the developers who treat their employees like humans didn't lay anyone off. As these conglomerates get bigger, it will become even more of a gig industry. Profits over people. And then they have the nerve to raise prices. And there isn't a single publisher that layed people off that didn't make an obsene profit this year.

None of them cut upper management.

CrimsonWing6920h ago

Can you explain to me how profit margins and dev costs dictate layoffs? Or strategy changes and financial difficulties brought on by inflation, over-hiring, and higher interest rates affect the decision for layoffs?

I’m not taking a jab at you or anything, I’m genuinely asking if you could explain to me how this is corporate greed and the factors that prove it’s absolutely unnecessary to do so for the survival of a company.

He won't be able to explain because the argument is nonsensical

thorstein19h ago(Edited 19h ago)

It's a good question.

If you look at CEO pay and realize that CEOs compensation is equal to 200-300 times that of the median employee compensation (72k at Take Two - 120k at Electronic Arts), then you can see that those CEOs can survive (somehow) by being compensated by earning 2-3 times as much as the median employee.

That would save 199-299 jobs PER CEO. EA has 12 members of their Executive team. Cutting one of them via layoffs would save hundreds of jobs.

Of course, these are base salaries and don't include bonuses. In 2023, Andrew Wilson took home 20.66 million. Imagine being able to pay for your child's entire four years of college, buy a home, buy two cars and a vacation home with what you took home in half a month.

But we're led to believe that the "survival" of the company is the "in the chair" dev's fault for making 120K?

As I said, none of the small publishers and devs laid people off.

So the question is more of a moral one. Do you reward the people that made you obsenely rich by keeping them employed in lean times, or do you cut them in order to pay for your 4th vacation home?

I feel bad for CEO's... theyre looked at as entirely expendable by typical gamers who feel they make too much. Even if theyre the ones leading the charge to those horrible profits.

People have no leg to stand on if they are against MTX but then also pro reducing or removing CEO's because of all the profits theyve received from MTX as a reason to state that the company can survive without the indivudals leading the charge to the same profits that should supposedly let them continue to keep employees employed but without the individuals leading the company to make those profits.

CEO makes profits happen through bad practices people disagree with. Inflation occurs and then they lay off employees. People get upset those employees were laid off after getting all those profits from those bad practices that are suddenly the reason for removing the CEO which is the individual who made those profits happen.

Anyone here seen time machine?

If you think it's bad now just wait and see what happens if MS's gamepass model becomes successful, just like the movie industry everyone but CEO's and shareholders will get f****d because the subscription model lets you cut out the workforce from fair pay... probably why MS is pushing so hard for it

Actor criticizing something, but does nothing about it...The story is getting old.
