For all the time EA spends shitting on its customers, sooner or later they'd file for bankruptcy. And it's not because of EA, more and more gamers are becoming educated about their spending habits and spend less money on games. EA could get away with shit earlier because their customers were idiots who would gobble their shit day one, complete with day-one DLC that involved the main storyline.

I used to remember that during college I used to spend hours on Dragon Age. When the Awakening DLC came out, I was disappointed because I finished it in less than a day and the story was absolute shit. Talk about a huge waste of my time.

I think EA's problem is treating the video game industry like a monopoly board.
All they do is buy up as many game developers as they can, and force them to produce by the numbers video games on a regular bases with nothing but profit in mind.
That sort of pig headed greedy approach while completely ignoring customers and only feeding them what they believe they'll buy (not 'want') based off the words of researchers out of touch with the gaming community and stereotypes, that gamers are all dumb and will pay for just about anything as long as they first pay off review sites and magazines for goods reviews to their mediocre games.
It just can't end well down the line.

It's actually happening to a lot of games, but it started with someone taking already existing indie games that aren't too well known to begin with like "The hunt" or some of those horror games that have been coming out, infecting them with the remote administration tool and using their accounts to post the infected file in even more places.
Though, it only seems to be happening with lesser known games, so if you're torrenting popular games such as dark souls, you should be fine

>"I think that if people who torrent the game are aware that there is a live person behind the game, and makes the game for a living, they are more willing to provide support than to a giant lifeless studio," he said.

Yeah, because games made by big studios are made by robots who don't need no pay or any of that shit.
Then again the ones who are really to blame for this state of things are the studios themselves as they fail to establish such link with any of their customers. 'Sure, we want you to buy our game but we care about enjoyment, too.' Literally two devs come to mind when I write this, I might be forgetting about some, though.

I am still interested in the Wii U.

A bit more than I hoped, but not surprising considering the controller.

I still applaud them for bringing something new to the table. Most of their detractors keep saying they only release the same old shit, only then to be excited about the same old shit with the same old controller over and over again.

Online FPS were hot back even in the late 90's when many a gamer was still a baby.

I would think that would be what the younger crowd would be tired of, instead of other genres. But it isn't for whatever reason.

played up to Apprehension and I think there's a bug with the physics puzzle that raises a platform from out of the water, which doesn't raise high enough to move on.

I tried stacking up boxes and other stuff on the end to jump off, didn't work, tried placing everything I could in the gap and jumping off them didn't work, tried removing and replacing the buoys to see of that would do anything, did nothing, and of course I tried running and jumping the gap countless times.
>> No. 7341 [Edit]
>>7340
I remember having a little trouble with that part as well. Keep adding buoys/wooden things until the end is out of the water, then do the jump + crouch thing to catch the other ledge. Some of the buoys are in rather awkward places; check you haven't missed any.

Bayonetta 2 being a wiiu exclusive is completely fucking retarded, and I don't care what anyone says. the first game wasn't even on the wii. all they're doing is giving a kick in the balls to the people that played the first game.
