Battlefield, Flipper, Mirror's Edge: The success story of DICE

Every good success story, which tells of the extraordinary career starts, in some remote garage. This one, however, in the young peoples of amateur programmers. Ulf Mandorff, Olof Gustafsson, Fredrik and Andreas Axelsson Liliegren not only came all from the same Swedish provincial Alvesta, but shared a common passion. They programmed in their free demos - small, self-running programs. The Hobby welded together the group that called itself The Silents. In May 1992, established the young team of the company Digital Illusions HB and published her first game for Microsoft DOS and Amiga - Pinball Dreams of pinball. The project has completed the former students under suboptimal conditions in the residence hall. Other Pinball sequels followed. Since January 1993, the company operates and the current name of Digital Illusions Creative Entertainment (in short: DICE).

Battlefield series are ace, Mirrors Edge is unique. To date, I can proudly say I own every DICE game out there. They just make quality stuff.

vhero4864d ago

I really disliked mirrors edge it was unique I agree there but it wasn't everybodys cup of tea and certainly not mine. BC2 was awesome though.

Quagmire4864d ago

Mirror's Edge 2 please, thank you

vhero4864d ago

Didn't sell 1 million on either console worldwide and EA don't usually make sequels to games that sell that badly.

Battlefield Producer Jaqub Ajmal Departs DICE After 10 Years

Battlefield Producer Jaqub Ajmal, who has worked on fan-fave entries such as BF3, BF4 and their DLCs, has announced he's departing DICE.

annoyedgamer956d ago

That's a bad sign but not unexpected given how EA managed the franchise post BF4.

BlackIceJoe956d ago

Hopefully he will start his own company and be able to bring a new spin on the shooter genre.

Too bad they won't be changing the weapon attachments that don't do anything other than change appearance... wtf.

FantasticBoss1835d ago

It's WWII man. There aren't a lot of weapon attachments and rail systems at this time in history. I was just happy to be able to get a reflex sight on my guns given the general availability of the era.

rainslacker1836d ago

Guess when they realized some people took their, "if you don't like it, don't buy it" comment to heart, that they actually needed to appeal to the people who would buy the game, instead of the people who make a fuss about things they actually have no interest in spending money on.

It'd be nice if other publishers would take note on this, because it's what people have been preaching to them since gamergate got derailed by Sarkeesian and her supporters. Maybe in the future, they can actually gain some good will from gamers by saying the, "if you don't like it, don't buy it", to those who had no intention or interest in buying it in the first place, and if a developer wants to do something different for artistic reasons, do it in a place where your target audience isn't an established group of what is essentially a core part of the general gaming market, along with droves of typical casual gamers who don't get involved with the politics either way.

UltraNova1836d ago

Great comment man, I cant agree enough. You should tweet Dice.

I feell though that the damage has already been done and that this will be the least successful BF game in years.

FantasticBoss1835d ago

But isn't this exactly what all the haters wanted? Honestly, I'm disappointed they are caving. I hope they don't end up sucking the personality out of the game.

Looks like the pre-orders (money) is making them suddenly see the light.

If only I cared.

Jackhass1837d ago

Yeah, once I saw the news about pre-orders being weak, I knew something would have to give.

TGG_overlord1836d ago

The game is already dead in my eyes. So I couldn't care less.

EazyC1836d ago

Me too.

Also, I always have a little sigh of relief when I see people using that term correctly. I know it's an American thing to say "I could care less", but what does that even mean!?

Concertoine1836d ago

THANK YOU

Like oh... you could... but you aren’t?

TheFirstClassic1836d ago

I'm no grammar nazi but I'm the same way, just really bugs me to see it used incorrectly idk why.
