Wasteland 2 NOT an Origin Exclusive

Enough people took Brian Fargo's positive comments about Origin's support for crowd-funded games as an indication that Wasteland 2 might be an Origin exclusive that the inXile Entertainment CEO took to Twitter to correct that mistaken impression. He says: "It is absolutely NOT going to be exclusive on Origin. They are just one of many digital stores we will support." Thanks nin.

Dragon Age was an old-school CRPG, which again, most publishers would have avoided. While EA did turn the game into a multiplatform release, I'm sure any other publisher would have done the same. Note that the PC version remained the lead SKU, something other publishers would not have done.

Please. You're acting as if EA did that out of the kindness of their fucking hearts. Dragon Age was close to DONE by the time EA bought Bioware. How would it have made ANY sense, even to those dipshits at EA, to shift the lead SKU at that point? There was a PC game, and nothing else.

"HAI GUYZ LETS MAKE TEH XBOX TEH LEAD SKU!!"

Come on. You're trying to blow sunshine up EA's ass for shit it had simply no other choice in. Had they bought Origin during the first year of DA:O, they would have turned it into a piece of shit like Dragon Age 2.

How do I know that? Because that's exactly what they DID when they were involved in a Dragon Age from the start. Again, stop clapping your hands for EA where they don't fucking deserve it.

DA2 was rushed but most of its poor design choices had nothing to do with consoles. It was just poor design on behalf of Bioware. The voiced, largely predefined protagonist, conversation wheel, wave-based enemy spawning, button-mashing-friendly combat (except on Nightmare difficulty), etc... these were all design choices to make the game more "visceral and cinematic." Bioware already jumped onto the "visceral and cinematic" boat with Jade Empire, long before they were bought by EA. DAO was an anomaly. DA2 simply followed the trend set by the first Mass Effect (which EA wasn't involved with).
