Nah. The problem is that EA controls a lot of franchises that people like. I don't like EA, but I like, say, Mass Effect too much to pass it up.

Still, maybe they'll learn from this. Just because they're souless robot bastards doesn't mean that they won't react to bad PR and player outrage.

True. No matter what fucktarded thing EA ruins a game with, the internet will have a way around it within days.

You have so much choise in gaming you can pass any IP up. You're an idiot for continuing to support EA and while people like you buy their games EA will continue to purchase orther IPs because you have a $ value on your head... When EA buys something like Bioware the company is valued based on how many people will buy their product no matter how watered down it is or what sort of DRM is put on it.
Bioware like the makers of Sim City are just being cashed out for every dollar EA can make in the shortest amount of time.

delusional fanboi. Always hoping the evil company learns a lesson, always giving them another chance. You are the cancer killing gaming.

I never said that I was an EA fanboy. I just like to think that they'll maybe learn something from all the bad PR they get.

@396,489
> rargh stop liking certain games and be cynical about everything
Yeah, nah. I'm not going to abandon franchises I like because they fall under EA's banner. If you do that then you're just as single-minded as the blind fanboys you claim to hate.

I didn't say that. I said that they are as single-minded as fanboys, focusing their hatred of EA at the exclusion of buying games that they'd like.

I think it's a bit silly that I'm having to defend my purchase of videogames that I enjoy playing. Yes EA are corporate robot bastards, but there's good developers under them that make good games. It's unfortunate that EA makes money off of them, but it'd even more unfortunate if good devs were ignored and subsequently eaten by EA just for being published by EA.

Get used to it. Everything is political now, and it's only going to get worse as information becomes ever more omnipresent.

I bareback, I torrent movies, I choose not to recycle. People are forever trying to convince me these choices are somehow wrong with respect to social justice. Why should purchases be any different?

The Diablo III makers Blizzard just lied and claimed it was to prevent cheating, instead of even admitting it.

Do many of you have Simcity? I've just got it and have no one to play with, I have no origin friends and it seems driven towards multiplayer.
