Ugh... when is the zombie craze going to end? When is the multiplayer survival pk fest going to end? You would think people would be sick of both by now.

Even if you are in the mood for a zombie game, you probably aren't going to enjoy asshats burning down your structures 24 hours a day, for no reason other than to spam WTFLOLBBQ or whatever in chat.

I agree...the dawn of the Rainbow Unicorn fad is nearly upon us! Take up arms gentlemen!

Watching Smedley competently pop open the console and spawn a vehicle just about has me sold outright. Guess he did come from programming roots even if he is now the Prez.

Aww come on now, we all know Smedley was really the guy behind the green suit of armor back in the old EverQuest days. Aradune (Brad) was just Smedley's puppet that he liked to shove his arm into...he was the Jeff Dunham of gaming!

"Hey, with your game purchase comes 30 days of free game time. However, we do put an authorization charge on your bank account to make sure you can actually afford the 15 dollar fee... that you don't owe us until next month.

"Don't worry, it's totally legit!"


Usually this authorization hold lasts a short period of time before being removed. It can vary from bank to bank.

Most banks leave that on there for three frikkin days.


I work with the payment card industry and can tell you some authorizations can last up to 30 days.

Nope, kill cam is still f*cked.

I've had plenty of issues, all due to DICE's shoddy programming of the game. Every time they patch something out, they introduce NEW bugs. I honestly have no idea how they manage to do that on a regular basis.

I support software for a living and can tell you that this is pretty much the way things work. Programming isn't as simple as most people dream it to be, especially when you're dealing with highly complex programs such as this or enterprise software. That said, if you don't invest in QA, these issues eventually get spotted out in the field when they should have been spotted internally.

LOL, too funny! These CoD games are starting to remind me of Walker Texas Ranger. That show was fucking great for the first season or two, then it started going downhill when their writers started smoking PCP -- time travel, aliens, UFO's, angels, you name it. I'm watching this going...w..t..f?

EA winning this like they have speaks more about the gaming community than it does about them. It makes gamers look like spoiled brats if EA wins this annually when up against companies on the list that are doing things that actually ruin people's lives and damage communities.

This is what I came to say. EA "won" twice in the past not because they're an awful company that does awful things, but because they pissed off fanbois who are both totally internet connected, and have the free time to vote in polls like this. In droves. "They nerfed the M4 in BF4!! EA IS THE WORST COMPANY IN TEH WERLD!@!!1`11" This poll by Consumerist is just clickbait.

If you hired a real polling firm like Pew to do a "Worst Company in America" poll, you wouldn't find EA in the top 100 even. It would be dominated by companies that have truly affected people's pocketbook and dignity: Delta, Philip Morris, Comcast, TWC, Walmart, Sachs, Koch, etc.

You do realize all of those companies were part of the WCIA poll, right? However, these were the remaining companies at the end of that process last year:

WCIA 2013 Bracket

These were the 40 contenders from this year:

Abercrombie & Fitch, Aetna, Amazon, American Airlines/US Airways, AT&T, Bank of America, Citi, Coca-Cola, Comcast, CVS, Delta Air Lines, DirecTV, EA, eBay/PayPal, Emeritus, Experian, Facebook, GM, JCPenney, Johnson & Johnson/McNeil, JPMorgan Chase, Koch Industries, Lululemon, McDonald’s, Microsoft, Monsanto, PepsiCo, Safeway, Sallie Mae, Sears/Kmart, SeaWorld, Ticketmaster/Live Nation, Time Warner Cable, Target, Verizon, Walgreens, Walmart, Wellpoint, Wells Fargo, Yahoo

Only EA could draw something like this out so long. Any programmer could have fixed it in 5 minutes at most and that includes testing the change.

Is this sarcasm or comic exaggeration, or do you actually think this is a quick fix? What do you think a programmer is going to do in a few minutes?

Considering it only took hackers 2 weeks?


More sarcasm or comic exaggeration, I assume?

I don't see any sarcasm there. It was widely reported that hackers had the game offline fairly early after the game launched. Actually, I doubt we would even be reading this story without them.

It was also widely reported by the guy who accomplished that feat that, while the game was technically offline, it could no longer receive updates from the game server that actually did portions of the simulation. Moving that logic to the local machine will certainly have taken more than 5 minutes. Stop the dramatics lol...

Patch already? Wow... Do your fucking homework, developers. If you don't have a QA department to do sufficient testing before releasing your game, then perhaps you shouldn't be in the business of making games.

You do understand that the final game master is completed well prior to release, and any work they have to do after that requires a patch?

So you are essentially bitching about the devs being on the ball and continuing to fix bugs etc right up to release day.

Could you be a bigger, self righteous, entitled cunt? I doubt it, but go nuts!

LOL! I wasn't going to go as far as you did, but people thinking cartridge games were bug free are smoking a lot of crack. They may not have been game-breaking bugs, but they existed regardless. In fact, here is a list of glitches from the original Super Mario Bros on the NES:

I don't think you understand how dumb you sound. The mere fact that there is a patch on day one means their QA department found bugs and eliminated them between the time the game went gold and release, or fixed pre-existing bugs during that timeframe. If they didn't have a QA department, you'd still be playing a shitty mess riddled with bugs...but guess what, you don't.

2 words for you:
1) Cartridge games.
2) Devs taking advantage of the "Patch" system to rush out a product to the sheeple for quick money due to greed.

Maybe you didn't grow up on the same planet as everyone else, but I remember a ton of issues associated with cartridge games. One of the most famous to date:

Watch Dogs creative director explains longer Wii U delay.

Wonder why they're bothering. 1. There are almost no Wii Us in the wild. 2. The hardware is such a low spec vs. the other platforms that it's going to be a pain to get it working.

Don't worry, when it is all done it will look like a polished turd, but with a mustache and a plunger.

No-name voice actors for Blackguards? Um, I'd rather listen to the same voice a few different times across multiple NPC's instead of listening to a SINGLE voice actor speaking in 12 different fake accents. Yes, that is right. Blackguards uses one single voice actor who speaks in 12 different accents to voice everything. I did not enjoy it as much as you did obviously lol...

I feel the same way about Starbound. My $14.99 was well spent - can't wait to see what the developers add to it in the coming months.

It felt doomed the moment they announced the free-to-play B.S.

I would have played the single player campaign and then uninstalled it, guess they finally figured out that's what most everyone was going to do.

I would have definitely purchased a 'normal' retail version of a new C&C game.


I agree. I think everyone just wants a classic RTS base-building experience we all seemed to enjoy from years past, but brought into the next generation. I want epic nukes and environmental destruction physics...and exploding sheep! Wait...wrong game.

Time to argue about who is or isn't playing this game!

I stopped playing after obtaining Twilight a few months after the game was released. There didn't seem like anything to really do after you hit max level and got a legendary aside from dungeons and stuff, which got really old after a while too. The economy was absolutely terrible with farmers driving down the prices of goods in the market - not sure if that is still ongoing today.

PC Market thrives on competition, not monopoly!

Sorry, I completely disagree. The PC market needs a monopoly to thrive. There are so many various combinations of PC hardware / software nowadays that it is getting really hard (and expensive) to support everything available to consumers. People love Steam because of the simple interface and the fact that most games are available on that digital distribution platform. I personally want just ONE place to get all my games, as do most people. Why do you think everyone despises Origin? Forcing people to use a digital distribution system to play your games instead of catering to the masses (Steam) was a really poor business decision and it just causes customer backlash. It is really no wonder why people are jumping from the PC ship.

You have no idea what drives growth and innovation do you?? You are wrong.

Actually, I do, and the PC market has been slowly fading away. Half-assed ports started showing up when the console gaming market exploded and PC gamers have been burned multiple times as a result on some pretty well known AAA titles. GTA4 ring a bell? The list goes on. 15-20 years ago, the PC market dominated because you simply couldn't get PC quality titles on your Nintendo or Genesis. Oh, how the tables have turned...
