USA Today is reporting that he will be getting $560 million extra on his departure due to the stock jump at the news of his resignation (on paper anyway). That is just obscene.

I think they mean that the value of his personal shares increased by 8%, thus he's worth $560 million more?

That is what I meant too! Of course I didn't convey it very well.

I don't read all of the interviews, but do these guys ever admit that they underestimated just how much bigger of an undertaking creating a whole game is as compared to creating a mod for an existing one? It seems to me like this could be a case of them biting off more than they can chew with the standalone project thing.

I still can't believe some execitive at fox didn't lose his job for the idiot move of canceling Sarah Connor Chronicles for Dollhouse.

Yeah, I loved Sarah Connor Chronicles, but even I have to admit that with the atrocious writing in the majority of season 2 it deserved to get canned. If they were to reboot the series following the ending of Season one (which will of course never happen but talking hypothetically) they could really salvage the series with decent writers. But as it was, with the ratings as abysmally bad as they were by mid season (averaging under a 1.0 in the 18-49 demographic iirc) there was really no other logical choice but to cancel. Not that Dollhouse was any better...

Ballsy move. I expected this to be sub-free with just a one-time retail transaction to buy the game a la Guild Wars 2. Not sure this is a good move. I know I will never pay a subscription for a game.

Let me play as a Terminator hunting targets in the past! Otherwise, I'd say I would rather see the games set in the post-apocalyptic future.

Yo mofos! Just checked my Wishlist on Steam - as I regularly do - and see that Of Orcs and Men is 75% off so it's $7.50 atm - and that's what I've been waiting for.


Nice! Thanks for the heads up - been interested in that one myself.

Twohy pissed me off with the second Riddick movie so bad I don't want to see another. I love the Riddick character, and Diesel played him perfectly in Pitch Black (a movie which I absolutely loved), then he had to go and get all stupid in Chronicles of Riddick. The whole movie should have been like the chase with Tooms and awesome prison escape on the incinerator planet, but instead we got some ridiculously stupid story about prophecies and chosen ones and destinies and world-ending baddies that only our hero can stop, blah blah blah. Blech! Just give me another game like Escape from Butcher Bay instead.

News Comments > EA Offering Origin Game Guarantees
58. Re: EA Offering Origin Game Guarantees Aug 20, 2013, 15:35 Prez
 
This is kind of an iffy thing to do when games are so short these days. I can see the thought process with a game that is multiplayer-centric (Battlefield series) or one that is intended to be a time sink (Simcity), but in a day when singleplayer games are routinely shorter than 8 hours I can see the chance for lots of abuse here. Still, it seems as though EA is making an attempt to improve its relationship with gamers (and more importantly for them its badly tarnished image) so that is indeed forward progress for them.

Personally the only reason I can see for wanting a refund is if the game is unplayable, either because the game itself is broken or my system is incapable of running the game at a playable clip.

microsoft should just buy steam and make that the official game store. end of story. (provided they don't interfere with how things are) everyone would be a winnar.


Jesus tap-dancing Christ, no fucking way! Microsoft is a giant fuck-up. They don't need to be within 10 miles of Steam, never mind buying it.

Hopefully by some miracle this won't be another "Syndicate"-style reboot non-event.

The whole service needs to die, not just the store. It is abysmal and MS never gave enough of a damn about the PC to even attempt to make it useable or worthwhile.

Wishing Dead Space 3 was on Steam. I'll buy the bundle though. EA seems to have gotten its head out of its ass with the whole markdowns "devaluing game properties" anyway, so that's progress.
