When I was younger I played games like Little Computer People,

I loved that game. The way your little dude would tap on the screen if you'd ignored him for awhile was awesome.

I've quite enjoyed all 3 sims games, but I refuse to buy a game where they strip so much of the barebones functionality out of it just to sell it back later as DLC. Fuck EA's greedy bullshit.

I've looked at some of the "let's play" videos on the tube and about 2 minutes into the character creation mode I was so bored I was sitting there thinking why the fuck am I wasting my time watching this shit.
Never played any of the previous sims games, is this any good? Does it get any more interesting later on ?

It's a very specific kind of experience to watch your little people go about and run their daily lives, and react to certain scenarios you make up for them, etc. If you play it as a "game" where you're trying to do the most efficient things in order for you to "win", you're not really going to have much fun, no.

But it can be fun to just pile people with wildly diverging ideas and goals into a house and watching the sparks fly.

Also, for budding architects, the home building has always been awesome, and I have had quite a lot of good fun building really expansive mansions.

This has invoked the always entertaining spectacle of users flocking to the forums looking for technical support for their pirated copies of the game.

Hehehehehe. Best way to treat them.

- Mass Effect 3 (what were they thinking?)
- Crysis 3

EA had nothing to do with Mass Effect 3 beyond publishing it. The shitty ending was all Mac Walters' belief that he is somehow the greatest sci-fi writer on the planet. ME3 wasn't a DA2 where EA forced it out the door after 17 minutes of dev time.

Crysis 3 was a good game, it was just way too short. Not sure if that's EA's fault or Crytek's.

I think at this point we as gamers should be cheering efforts to course correct with good moves just as much as we lambast the bad ones.

When EA does something good, I congratulate them for it. When they give away free games, I thank them for it.

I'm just trying to figure out where "We hired a new chief marketing officer from a company that has zero to do with developing games" somehow intersects with "a good move."

"No it was him!"
"No it was him!"
"No it wasn't, it was you!"
"Nuh-uh, it was you!"

They should force SEGA and Gearbox to merge, as they're obviously a perfect moronic fit.

This game is, well, boring. It's a single player game, with all the annoyances of MMOs (oh, you need to pick up this item to fulfill a quest? Somebody else just picked it up, so you'll have to wait for a bit until it respawns)

That that isn't instanced is beyond fucking ridiculous. What is this, 1998?

Isn't it pretty normal to fire a large portion of the staff after your MMO is out and all the teething issues have been resolved? It's not as if all those developers/programmers have much to do anymore.

Again, if you don't want to be fired every time you've completed a project, don't get a job in the game industry.

Glad it works, Blue. I buy thousands of bucks worth of shit off Amazon each year, so going in through your link is maybe 10 seconds of extra work.

Good on Australia. Valve's refusal to refund money on purely broken games is horseshit.

This is a fucking terrible game. It's not half bad as a Gladiator-Lite movie.

Sold to consumers. Shipped means to stores but not necessarily sold, companies say sold in to differentiate it from that.

Okay, that makes sense. Even so, I'm fairly sure it broke exactly no records, unless it's "Watch Dogs units sold" like Spectral said.

record-breaking open-world action game that has sold-in more than 8 million units

What record did it break, exactly? Because as of February, GTA5 had sold 32.5 million copies.

Also, wtf is sold-in?

Its not a bad statement, there is no real reason why anyone should resort to rascist bigotry. Hate speech is a crime where Im from, so why should it go unpunished?

Although considering the fact that most forum admins behave like fascist pigs with delusions of grandeur (thats what you get when you hire people for free) I find the irony very slightly sweet tasting.

It's fairly interesting to see you say that nobody should resort to racist bigotry when you yourself frequently reach for the anti-Christian bigotry staple when posting.

for example:

Somehow I'm still unable to be surprised by how vile people can be, especially on the internet.

There fixed that for you. With that said why would anyone be vile to her because her dad killed himself??? Must be those fundamentalist Christians again, formenting their own brand of special hatred....after all suicide is a sin...

I could dig up more, but eh. You know damn well you do this pretty often.

Might be something to consider in lieu of your original statement.

If you can make them get into fist (or knife)fights, form or join violent drug dealing gangs, or become homeless drunks, it might be more interesting. Just don't see the point of this however.

Seems boring without being able to really create some truly messed up situations.

Announcing The Sims 4: Breaking Bad DLC!

Wait... shit, I would buy that!

The point is that marketing is more than advertising and does in fact have input into the game. I don't think his game is saying that marketing is always good at its job.

The very fact that marketing DOES have input into a game is what's been fucking ruining the gaming industry. Because none of these cockwallets have a fucking clue what makes a good game. Same with this new guy at EA. "Hey, everyone, he helped sell $12 boxes of cereal and streamlined the checkout cart at Amazon! WE CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT KIND OF WHACKY ZANY GAMES HE CAN HELP US MAKE!"

Give me a break. The guy is a fucking suit. His positive influence to EA games will be exactly zero percent.
