If you needed any more reasons to stop buying any EA products, here is another. FU EA.

This is about corporate sensibilities. EA is obviously a company that supports Trump and people like him - e.g. Hillary as well. They simply don't want the appearance of such. Politics for large corporations is done behind the scenes in contributions to Super PACs and the like. When it comes to PR you want to avoid religion and politics like the plague.

yeh its definitely come a long way and changed a lot since they started.. current game is really good, the basic combat/movement mechanics are like 1000x better

took way too fucking long IMO, but at least they finally got there.. and also they delivered on many of the initial promises too

Yeah, I gave up on this thing almost 2 years ago. Another prime example of why not to buy into EA games. Well I guess I'll check it out when it's finished...whenever that is.

i recall that he's brought up before he's some kind of software developer who doesn't make much more than this and resents that the underclasses are now on equal footing with him since their jobs "don't warrant a living wage", unlike his.

That's the POV of every selfish prick. 'I deserve XYZ but fuck everyone else, let them starve!' And they're too stupid to comprehend that the race to the bottom hurts everyone in the long run. They're a perfect example of why eugenics needs to be legal.

The Panama papers are all over the news today in the UK - the BBC and The Guardian. I guess that'll hit the US over the next few days.

It's going to be really interesting to see who really owns what and how much tax the wealthy have been avoiding. Icaland's PM and the UK PM already implicated, in addition to the usual suspects (Assad, Putin, Ghadaffi, etc).

Yeah, and as usual there will be a lot of grumbling and brouhaha about it for a couple of weeks, nothing will change, and then we'll be on to the next thing. The only reason its news is because media has to make a living somehow. The vast majority of people out there don't know, don't wanna' know, and don't care.

I doubt it. I'd wager you have to connect to their servers in order to use it. Otherwise they'd just have an opt-out. Yet, in most sane countries with decent consumer protection laws this would never be permitted. At best it would be something you actually have to actively opt-in for.

You might be correct, but I'm not sure are you saying the only way to use them while playing a game will require you to be online? So this will render Steam Offline play or any other offline game, unplayable and obsolete?

If they're not tracking directly I'd presume they have some sort of software for measuring metrics in game and uploading the data afterward. Tracking for both performance related info as well as marketing. Were your eyes looking at that Ford Mustang in NFS a little longer than the other cars? Well the good people at Ford would love to know about that. etc.

Don't hate the player, hate the game.

Tesla just launched their market penetrating Model 3, and look at the agreement they have, or take a look at Fitbit which loads of people use. Every technology focused industry plays this game.

This is capitalism in 2016. Take solace in knowing you are one of hundreds of millions of users, and the businesses don't actually care about you specifically.

Sure data robbery by pimple faced hackers or digital criminals is always possible, and they may specifically hurt you, but your more likely to get mugged on the street or tricked/exploited by a shady business you deal with in person.

There's no story here, just fear mongering.


Well maybe your privacy means nothing to you but it means a lot to some of us. I don't object entirely to datamining, just ask permission first. It shouldn't be a right - and again, it's not in many other countries. Hell, pay people. Everyone know they're doing it for money, a lot more people would willing if they were seeing a piece of the pie. Regardless I don't want to live in a world that's just one big shitty marketing firm tracking everything I say and do just to sell me shit I don't want or need.

And there's the other shoe we've been waiting for since Facebook bought the Rift. This is why we can't have nice things.

Heh, well several of us called this as soon as Oculus was acquired by Facebook. I don't see how anyone couldn't have seen this coming - particularly with Facebook is involved. I can't imagine it'll be that different with any of the other companies at this point. Yeah, much like Win 10, thanks, but no thanks.

Unreal how they dropped the ball on this. It does not inspire confidence. How hard is it to communicate with your customers? 'Our apologies but our ship date has been pushed back due to unforeseen problems with XYZ. We'll notify you the moment we know more.'

I sincerely doubt that an alien race who's mastered the technology of FTL travel would have a problem finding us or any other class M planet. They probably just send out a pile of solar system hopping probes to whiz through a system hopping from planet to planet via warp speed. It would all be very fast and entirely automated. I imagine the equivalent of the Borg will show up one day and say 'See ya! Wouldn't wanna' be ya'!'
