Admittedly I am no financial expert but it seems like companies go out of their way to make sure they "lose" as much money as possible.

Exactly. It is pretty well known that EA is milking every last drop out of its acquisitions. The BioWare acquisition was approximately $1bn but that did not include any follow-up costs. It is very easy for a creative team of accountants to massively inflate these expenses for acquisition so that it looks like you're losing money in style.
At the end of the day the only thing that counts anyway is that you have a healthy cashflow and plenty liquidity so that you can cover your short term expenses (like salaries, cost of goods etc.) and according to this line from the financial report...

Trailing-twelve-month operating cash flow was $152 million as compared with $12 million a year ago. The Company ended the year with cash and short-term investments of $1.7 billion.

... we can clearly see that EA is not in trouble in any way, shape or form.

Assuming that all of the leaked info is correct (and there is very little reason to assume otherwise given the release is that close and also given the fact that there have been zero attempts on nVidia's side to deny any of these rumors) it is outright amazing how nVidia has gone from "pwning" ATI to losing the game (at least for now).
Remember how after the release of the G80 uber chip everyone thought that ATI was finished? G80 seemed to be from another world back then. Everyone thought that nVidia had managed to achieve a technological leap that ATI would have a very hard time of catching up with (if ever).

And now... this? This is all they got? A noisy, hot, power-hungry, steaming pile of shit?!? WTF?!?

I really, really hope that nVidia has a plan B for the holiday season of this year at the latest. One can only hope that they already know and realize that Fermi is a failure and that they have started working on a redesign or a new design a few months ago already so that the next gen (= what Fermi should have been) is ready for launch in a few months from now. Otherwise things are gonna go downhill for them very fast. At least in the discreet graphics card sector.

Creston wrote on Mar 19, 2010, 14:16:
He is turning into a bigger fucking tool every time he opens his mouth.

To summarize :

Peter founds (with a few others) Bullfrog. Makes AWESOME games.
Peter sells Bullfrog to EA.
Peter whines that EA is stifling his creativity, is raping his studio, etc. etc. etc.
Peter leaves Bullfrog.
Peter starts Lionhead.
Peter makes a pretty fun game.
Peter sells Lionhead to EA.
Peter whines that EA is stifling his creativity, is raping his studio, etc. etc. etc.
Peter makes a few shitty console games.
Peter whines that he is "being imprisoned by this box" of developing for consoles.

Conclusion : Peter Molyeyensnyyzyeweuuxuxx is one dumb asshole.

Analogy : "Why do I keep getting sick just because I keep eating this fresh dog-shit off the street?? Waaaaah!"


I think the dumber asshole is you since you don't even manage to get your facts straight. He sold Lionhead to Microsoft, not EA.
Your analogy is really dumb, too. You are obviously not capable of telling the difference between sincere "whining" and "whining" as a business strategy. Hint for the dumbfucks: Peter is very obviously into the latter.

Look, I'm not a Molyneux fan by any stretch of the imagination (nor of his games, no, not even Dungeon Keeper) and I agree that he could be a little more modest at times but the guy still is a genius of sorts. He's made dozens of millions by selling two highly successful game studios that he founded and he's still leading one of the studios doing what he loves the most: Making creative games. How cool is that (for him)? Right. Very.
I believe that all of the dumbasses bashing the guy are in reality just envious.

News Comments > Ubisoft DRM Titles Confirmed
57. Re: Ubisoft DRM Titles Confirmed Feb 27, 2010, 10:46 CJ_Parker
I really do not see how UBI's DRM can not anger any long time devoted PC gamer in any fashion.

Long time devoted PC gamer here and I don't mind their DRM in any way, shape or form. I do in fact not give a shit.

My internet farts at least once a night.

See... there's a major difference between the two of us. Mine "farts" like once a year (if that).

I game on my desktop (LAN parties) and my laptop (airport, relatives) in many locations I do not have internet, let alone a stable connection. To boot if the connection is lost you can loose progress!

I don't do any of that crap but if I would then I would just play non-Ubi games at LAN parties and other locations with no Internet access. There's always something else to play.

How can being treated like a guilty thief from second one and loosing freedoms while paying MORE for your games not piss you off?

The only thing that pisses me off is the freebie asshole fuckfaces (read: pirating thieves) who got us into this situation in the first place and who are now whining that their precious torrents could become an endangered species in the unlikely case that Ubi's protection might actually turn out to be somewhat effective. Just look at this thread. At least 99% of the assholes posting here are downloading the majority of their games for free instead of buying them. That's a fact.

Fuck you Ubi, fuck you.

I second that. But not because of the DRM but because of their general support/patching policy (which is more or less non-existent really).

Are you crazy? The original NWN was such garbage that, even though NWN2 is only decent, it's leagues better than the piece of crap that Bioware put out.

u r teh crazzzeh, too, dude!!1! Well, seriously, it really depends on what kind of gamer you are. If you do not care about multiplayer then you are 100% right in saying that the NWN 2 OC was infinitely better than the über shitty NWN 1 OC. If you are into modding and multiplayer, however, the situation is exactly reversed.

Sorry sir, but Obsidian has a WELL KNOWN history of issues with games.

Exactly. It's pretty silly to blame the publishers as far as KotOR 2 and NWN 2 are concerned.

As for KotOR 2 everyone with only half an interest in the video games industry knew that LucasArts under its back then president Jim Ward demanded games to be released on time. They didn't give extensions. Period. Jim Ward stated that very fact repeatedly in public interviews for everyone to read (if anyone doubts what I'm saying Google is your friend). Obsidian knew exactly that they had to be finished with KotOR 2 on day X. They missed the mark. They failed to deliver the game on time. Plain and simple as that. They fucked it up, not Lucas.

And regarding NWN 2 I never got the impression that the game was rushed. Say about Atari what you will (yeah they handled the Mysteries of Westgate release rather poorly but who knows what possibly even good reasons they might have had to delay the release as long as they did with all the legal insecurities in regards to premium modules?) but, anyway, the post-release support of NWN 2 was generally pretty awesome.
At the very least there is absolutely NO indication whatsoever that they "forced" Obsidian to release NWN 2 prematurely and then withdrew all support from the developers or some crazy shit like that. Quite the contrary. It seemed like Atari really cared about the game and tried to help Obsidian in building a community on par with the NWN 1 community. The sole reason this didn't work out is that Obsidian never really managed to make their tools as user friendly, flexible and stable as BioWare did with the NWN 1 toolset. Again: Obsidian failed, not their publisher.

Finally look at Alpha Protocol and the multiple, massive delays. Obsidian can call themselves lucky that Sega is that patient and forgiving. But of course if the game sucks people are still going to blame Sega for "forcing" Obsidian to release early. In spite of the more than generous extensions that Sega granted them.
And the same will happen with FO: New Vegas. If the game sucks it's all going to be Bethesda's fault, of course.

But, hey, the world would be a boring place without proper retards so please go ahead and continue to defend Obsidian. It's rather amusing.

Open betas (especially ones you can only play if you pre-order the game) are not used for actual testing. They are glorified demos.

Grade A bullshit. Open betas are in fact used for testing, of course, and they are a very important part of the testing process. The purpose of an open beta is to load test, i.e. to see how the server and the client behaves under extreme conditions when thousands of players are hitting your servers (from the login servers to the lobby and actual game servers) all at once. Ideally you create conditions that are more extreme than anything that should ever happen during live operations of the game (although there is a definite difference between theory and practice in this regard -> see launch of WoW ). Then you work on the bugs -and there's some really quirky ones that pop up during load testing at times- and improve/optimize the network code and configs and all that crap.

Therefore: Open beta = testing all the way. Jerykk = clueless n00b (as always).

Amen. It amazes me that after the horrible PR backlash they got with the original Bioshock, that they'd just stupidly burn themselves on that same shit again. It's really a zoo full of retarded monkeys that runs 2K.

Horrible PR backlash or not, the original Bioshock was also one of the very few PC games that managed to go uncracked for something between two and four weeks as far as I can remember.
Like it or not but that was indeed a smashing success in terms of piracy protection. And the game sold very well so why the fuck would they change their DRM policies?
So that you, Jerykk and the rest of you anti-DRM wankers can steal the game on or better yet before day zero? Aaawww. Looks like that's not gonna happen this time either huh? Too bad huh? Aaaawww... my poor little puppies..... muuuaaaahahahahahaaaa

It'd be nice to see how PC DD figures are shaping up these days, I suspect the Steam sale was a pretty massive shaker there.

I don't think so. I think that a lot of people are grossly overestimating DD sales of non-casual (retail) games. Did you notice how Modern Warfare 2 never even dropped from the top 6 sellers on Steam for the entire duration of the Steam holiday sale in spite of many, many awesome deals on rather popular modern games? And let us not forget that MW2 is (or at least was during the holidays) selling at US$ 59.99 on Steam which is a lot more expensive than at retail. Who the hell is buying this game at that price? It can't really be that many people (talking sheer numbers of "units" sold). In relation to retail it can only be a few percent. And its (MW2's) still strong performance in relation to the holiday deals is evidence that DD is still more of a niche thing for us geeks rather than being anywhere near a serious threat for retail.

The game still looks good & I'll be getting it "most likely" but I was not very impressed with this video. It looks REALLY fast paced & chaotic like COD:MW MP. I was hoping for more of a slower paced BF2 feel with a little more realism closer to ARMA.

What? BF2? Realism? Like ArmA? Are we on crack again, hombre?

Do any of you guys bitching play any of these games? If not, what the hell do you care honestly? If it's not cost efficient to keep the servers running, then shut them down.

Easy now, man. You seriously expecting some of these mouthbreathers to think before they post? Come on. Let's get back to reality shall we?. I bet that at least 99% of these whiny retards didn't even bother to check the list of games in the first place or read the newsbit even. I'm sure they went straight from deciphering the headline to typing whatever retarded bullshit crossed their mind right after.
