Ok,i feel like i have to put this at the start of my journal,seeing how everyone appareantly is so
incredibly imbecilic that they actually
think that everything i say is 100% factual,so let me make the following clear to everyone who appareantly is that
stupid:DO NOT TAKE EVERYTHING I SAY SERIOUSLY,THIS JOURNAL IS MERELY A COLLECTION OF SUBJECTIVE OPINIONS WITH SOME OBJECTIVE LINKS. DO NOT GET ASSHURT OVER THIS JOURNAL EITHER,BECAUSE YOU'LL LIKELY END UP LOOKING LIKE AN INCREDIBLY IDIOTIC WANK STAIN AND I'D STILL NOT GIVE 2 SHITS ABOUT YOUR WHAILING AND WHINING. THANK YOU.
So,it's time to talk about a company you've pretty much all heard about.
Yes,i'm talking about Electronic Arts
Alright,let's start with some questions now shall we?"Have you ever played a EA-related game?"
Yes,i have. I don't remember all of them but i'm quite the fan of their Battlefield franchise,but i also used to play games like FIFA and Need For Speed on various consoles (both on the DS Lite and WII). I also have some other games on my Origin and i even own 1 non-Origin/Steam game called F1 Challenge 99-02,but more info about that later."How many EA-related games do you own?"
Quite some actually. Currently i own:Battlefield 3. (Got it as a gift from Origin)
Battlefield 4. (You could only play it for a limited time on Origin,but i still have it in my "My Games" section to whatever)
Battlefield Hardline. (Same as BF4)
Peggle. (Never actually played it,but decided to get it anyway)
Plants VS Zombies. (Same as Peggle)
Titanfall. (Same as BF4 and BF Hardline,but i never actually played it)
Various Need For Speed games. (Both on the DS Lite and WII)
Battlefield 2. (Used to play the limited demo,but i didn't like it)
Battlefield: Bad Company 2. (Played it from a alternate source,and it had BC2 Vietnam too,but when my computer got viruses and my laptop had to be re-installed to get rid of all the viruses,that game got removed. God i loved that game...)
Various FIFA games. (Both on the DS Lite and WII)
F1 Challenge 99-02. Used to have the English variant,but when my laptop had to be re-installed because of viruses,i lost that one. Now i own the Italian-only version and a modded version that has all seasons,all tracks,all cars and so on.
And the best part is,that it's absolutely free)
Battlefield Play4Free. (Used to play that game a lot back in 2011 and 2012 when i still had a shitty underpowered Acer laptop,but when i got a MUCH better laptop with NVIDIA i left that sinking ship of a game as fast as i could)
Medal of Honor. (Got it for free,played a little bit of it and it wasn't that bad,but it's just not my cup of tea)
"Do you agree with EA's way of marketing?"
Absolutely not. Ever since 2008 they've been fucking up multiple games and even FRANCHISES
with their sleazy backdoor ways of marketing.
And i'm not even kidding when i say that. I'm just baffled by how many people literally still
bend over to the disgusting practices of thos godforesaken company.
Don't believe me? Here are some vids i dug up that'll explain the shit this company has done (and gotten away with) for so long.www.youtube.com/watch?v=CjYEi4…www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-LE0y…www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBw_W6…www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mh3FN3…
(Yes,i know some of those vids are more on the satirical side,but once you watch them all the way trough,you'll see that they're not that
Not everything i have to say about EA is bad. BEFORE
the 2008 meltdown,EA actually used to publish some pretty damn fine games that i'm sure many have played back in the 90's and 2000's. From Dead Space to the SIMS City to Battlefield to Need for Speed to FIFA to even several F1 games,we've all played them and we all loved them.
It's really sad that you've sunk this
low EA,from playing IGN to buffing up your game to paying fake-Christians to hold up signs saying your company is the Anti-Christ to SUEING
your employees you REFUSED
to pay to...well,the list goes on and on."Do you still play EA-related games?"
Sometimes. I only really play the modded version of that F1 Challenge 99-02 i mentioned earlier.
I do think that the studio who made it at the time was literally pushing the limits when it came to game development,seeing how it was so fun yet so good.
Definately better than the joke Codemaster shat out last year. My God F1 2014 was a fucking flop...
Here's some info about both F1C 99-02 and F1 2014:en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EA_Sport…en.wikipedia.org/wiki/F1_2014_…)
But basically i prefer to play games on Steam (Like Killing Floor,Dead Island,Dirty Bomb (if the game doesn't lag beyong belief),Metro 2033,Left 4 Dead 2 but also lesser known or more recent games like Spooky's House of Jumpscares (seriously,i recommend you guys this one,i'd say that this game really is different than so many other horror games) and Trackday Manager)."What's your stance on Origin?"
I despise it. Like so many have said before,it's a terrible platform.
Hell it doesn't even feature any other fucking games besides EA's,which is just the saddest thing ever.
Nope,give me Steam anyday,they got some great games on their platform"What's your opinion on the Battlefield series?"
I played quite some games of the franchise,but my absolute favourite was Bad Company 2: Vietnam.
that fucking game,i loved it even more than the original. It had some great guns,lovely maps and some cool vehicles.
Too bad that the teams were quite unbalanced at the times...same goes to the original BC2.
Then i'd say Battlefield 3,because even though it wasn't as fun as BC2,it's still a LOT
better than the stinking piles of shit that EA shat out later on,better known as Battlefield 4 and Battlefield: Hardline.
Seriously,fuck those games. They were horrible when they first came out and i'm sure it's not any better now.
Then we have Battlefield Play4Free...oh man oh man,what a missed opportunity this has been EA.
You had the chance to turn this into a great F2P game,but instead you turned it into a godawfull stinking pile of garbage,said "Fuck it,we're gonna update this game as least as humanly possible"
all while keeping the money transactions wide open for all the 12 year olds to cry to their mummies for that 1 OP gun to kill everyone with instantly.
listening to your community,right EA and EASY?"What's your opinion on the Dead Space series?
Never played it,so i can't really answer that.
Though i heard that 3 was a huge
letdown for many."What's your opinion on the SIMS series?"
Never really played it,so i can't answer that one either.
But i heard they're busy fucking that one up aswell."What's your opinion on the Need For Speed franchise?"
I actually do love that one quite a lot. I used to play multiple titles on my old DS Lite and WII,and i'm still a fan.
But many of those games came out BEFORE
2008,so there's that."What's your opinion on the FIFA franchise?"
Pretty much the same as the NFS series,altough the FIFA games on the DS Lite had some HILARIOUS
bugs in it.
Like a keeper who'd duck for the ball,but it would end up in the goal anyway. Hilarious.
Now,if anyone's interested in that modded F1 Challenge 99-02 game,then here's the link to the official site:valpaso75.xoom.it/

Furthermore,i'd like to close off my journal with this final message to Electronic Arts.Stop. Stop with your sleazy marketing campaigns,stop with your backdoor bribery,stop with the destruction of your games,stop adding in features that NO ONE WANTS,stop making DLC's that you have to PAY FOR,stop making DLC's that are so fucking overpriced,stop completely IGNORING your own communities,stop enslaving your staff and workers with tight deadlines,stop treating your workers like shit by NOT paying them ,stop with your shitty Origin system and publish your games on Steam already and become what you once were before the 2008 meltdown changed you.
Either do that,or close down your company alltogether,because what you're basically doing with some games is like what some mothers tend to do with some babies with extreme pain.
Not putting them out of their misery.
(And yes,i do know that that comparision was quite harsh,but sometimes harsh is the best way to get a message across).
Alright,i think that next week i'll do something a bit more fun. I'll make a journal about all the things you should say to things to piss them off or troll them,and it'll be called "How to succesfully troll people on the web"
And after that,i'll make another "Let's Talk About"
journal. This time i'll be talking about the current bribery allogations of the FIFA
Aight,see you next week peoples.
