EA and Crytek?

EA executive hints of possible acquisition of Crytek on TG Daily (thanks Allen) is a story speculating about EA's interest in the German developer, saying: "According to article published in 'Die Welt,' EA's executive vice president and general manager of international publishing Gerhard Florin described Crytek as a 'very, very interesting candidate' for an acquisition." Of course I consider Angelina Jolie a very, very interesting candidate for a mistress, but that doesn't mean MrsBlue or Brad Pitt need to start lining up private investigators, so we shall see what comes of this.

I mean, sure, with EA's stellar record of continuing support for games after they are published, and almost stubborn willingness to let a game not be rushed to ensure it's a quality release, I shouldn't worry, right?

Crytek is like a beautiful daughter and EA is the Hip-Hop gangsta she brings home to meet the folks. Nothing good is going to come out of it.

Crytek was so willing to sell out to NVidia during Far Cry.

They completly screwed most of the fans by spending their time working on shader 3.0 which added nothing to the game, instead of working on all the problems in the game.

I had no major problems tha I can think of with the game. Nor did any of the other 5 people I know who played it. I had an ATI card at the time as well.

While Jolie doens't do it for me, I wouldn't consider her anything close to fugly.

Cya Crytek, we hardly got to know you. Say hi to Origin and Westwood who are currently enjoying a life time in paradise after winning the Running man competition.

Well if EA gets Crytek then I guess Crysis will make its ship date even if its not ready. Then of course a couple patches will come out that do not fix all the bugs and then EA will drop support for it, lay off the crytek team and get a bunch of interns to crank out some shit games on the cry2 engine.

FUCK OFF AND DIE!!!

The last decent developer out there, and you have to buy even them? Great! Another game with 50 billion bugs shipped, and no support afterwards. Woohoo!

It's unbefuckinglievable how one company is singlehandedly completely ruining the game industry.

In EA's defense, Atari is doing whatever they can to help ruin it too.

Does anyone remember when EA was actually good? They rocked hard in the mid-80's with games like Racing Destruction Set and more. Why oh why must they gobble up good companies and pass off the resulting steaming pile of shit as shiny diamonds?
