Fast forward three to four years and we’re looking at an entirely different company. Electronic Arts has helped evolve the industry through this generation unlike any other publisher. Through amazingly unique titles such as Dead Space and Mirror’s Edge,

Was this written by an EA employee? While Mirror's Edge may have been somewhat unique (in perspective), Dead Space was far from it. It borrowed heavily from a ton of games, films and literature. It just happened to do it well.

No longer do you see this company trying to buy up the little guy in order to make a quick buck, but instead they’re trying to grow their company to that next level of super power that the industry has yet to see.

You may want to talk with EA Warrington, EA Chicago, EA Big, DICE Canada, Pandemic Studios Brisbane, and others.

One of the biggest examples of this turn around, in my opinion, is the Need for Speed series. Who could have predicted that Need for Speed: Shift end up so successful and offer such a great experience?

Interesting, since I hear this is getting mixed reviews. Plus he rips Activision for milking franchises, but says nothing of the milking of Madden, NBA Live, NHL Live, Tiger Woods, Rock Band, LoTR series, The Sims (and spin-offs), Need for Speed, summer movie tie-ins, Command & Conquer series, and more.

Since Valve wholly owns Steam, and Steam makes money from the sale of games made by rivals, Valve profits from the games made and published by their rivals.

Doesn't nearly every large publisher sell their games on Steam? This sounds like Randy Pitchford doing his typical crybaby routine to garner attention.

“I, personally, trust Valve. But I’m just saying, honestly, I think a lot of the industry doesn’t.”

Who exactly then, huh Randy? You obviously don't have an issue selling Borderlands on Steam. Someone in the media needs to call out that jackass and tell him the STFU.

L4D2 is the most pre-ordered game in Valve history already

And yet, all we hear are the whiners and crybabies. Personally, I'm looking forward to this game. I played L4D a ton and definitely got my money's worth (and I don't even play versus).

Totally generic looking. Do devs even try to make something unique anymore? "set in a dystopian future" is just another name for "vaguely european slum area."

how do they give you a good idea of the type of gameplay you'll get when there's so many variables to it yet fit it in demo form?

Like the devs of Crackdown did it: sectioned off area, accelerated skill progression and timed gameplay (30-45 minutes). Personally, I thought it worked perfectly and was the deciding factor for me to purchase it.

Activision denied any wrongdoing in its purchase of 7 Studios, saying the buy out was made to "bolster its development capabilities," that it "provided the fledgling developer with much needed financing during these difficult economic times."

Well that was nice of them. Activision is a real class act-

Activision... laid off an estimated 30 people from 7 Studios.

I guess the difficult economic times are over.

That suit alleged that Activision and 7 Studios conspired to withhold Scratch the Ultimate DJ "in an effort to delay the development and release of Scratch and to gain access to proprietary technology."

Wasn't Activision accused of the same thing by Double Fine regarding Brutal Legend?

Oh please, hosting the "No DRM group", going nuts in DRM topics and then purchasing a game with DRM is flipflopping. No one cares man, it's not a huge deal,

Obviously, some people care. Maybe the same amount of people that care about sales figures.

But we will never know how many people care about DRM vs. how many people care about sale figures because they don't post the numbers!

You've been insulting, derogatory

If you're going to keep score, you might want to be accurate.

Verno:
1- Step outside of your condescension
2- read the topic moron
3- Your argument is thick headed and you personally sound like a professional wrestler trying to debate.
4- instead of the unintelligent "BECUZ THEY CAN CUZ THEYRE PRIVATE U STUPID HEAD" drivel you usually offer.
5- Ignoring your retarded comment
6- You're even more crazy
7- Remove thy head from thine buttocks.
8- That's called maturity Dagok, something you could learn a great deal about.
9- I wonder if the words "I was wrong" or "I'm sorry" are even in your vocabulary. <----have to count it twice since it's two separate sentences
10- never shut up with his obnoxious opinion
11- Captain Dagok, The Principled Honest Champion of Northrend<---My personal fav
12- I will obnoxiously paste them all again.
13- When you can't win, try to yell them into submission.<----This is here for the sheer irony
14- You're the bigger idiot

Dagok:
1- more bullshit from you
2- How obtuse can you be?
3- your own ridiculous paranoia and conspiracy theory.
4- Pull your head out of your ass.
5- Jesus Jonas, not you too. <----Not sure if that one counts
6- The lack of common sense around here is astounding.
7- not only are you an idiot
8- you are so thick headed and are so desperate
9- support your bullshit conspiracy
10- you should go work for FOX News<----Some may find this one extremely insulting
11- are you just that dense?

VERNO: 14*
DAGOK: 11*



*Total does not reflect all of the sarcastic comments by both parties, which were too numerous to count.

The enjoyment of a game comes after the purchase of the game and all of these factors we've listed can be part of the purchase decision. Pay attention.

I think it's just two different schools of thought. Some gamers like to know numbers because it may affect their purchasing decision. Others do not.

I happen to be in the latter category. While it would satisfy my curiosity, it in no way affects my purchase. As a gamer, numbers aren't that important.

Can you over dramatize that some more?

Could you whine some more? Honestly, why do you care if some gamers are upset over this? You'd think your life hangs in the balance if gamers love this idea or not.

3. a field, genre, or category of art: Dance is an art.
4. the fine arts collectively, often excluding architecture: art and architecture.
5. any field using the skills or techniques of art: advertising art; industrial art.
6. (in printed matter) illustrative or decorative material: Is there any art with the copy for this story?
7. the principles or methods governing any craft or branch of learning: the art of baking; the art of selling.
8. the craft or trade using these principles or methods.
9. skill in conducting any human activity: a master at the art of conversation.
10. a branch of learning or university study, esp. one of the fine arts or the humanities, as music, philosophy, or literature.
11. arts,

I liked inFamous, though it had it's faults and I wouldn't say its a great game. But I like it enough to finish. I'm currently playing Batman AA, Fallout 3 (with the new DLC) and a handful of PSN titles.

Definitely looking forward to Uncharted 2, Afrika, Borderlands, Ratchet & Clank Future, Assassin's Creed II, oh, and of course...

Killzone 2 looks amazing but I thought the game was merely average. Though there are many who would disagree with that. I loved Uncharted and will definitely be picking up Uncharted 2 day one.

What's your PSN ID? I'll add you.

No surprise here. MW2 will sell 4,000,000 copies regardless of a demo or what the reviews say. Activision is laughing all the way to the bank on this one.
