    Maybe they all just realized what a sinking ship EA has become, and decided to jump into the much more freeing Indie and Kickstarter movement. If so, good for them. Publishers like EA are becoming more and more obsolete the more increasingly obvious it's becoming that Developers no longer need them anymore. Publishers need to start adapting and be less of restrictive, focus group, directive chair-driven assholes, or rot in hell.

    Ive seen various people try to question how EA will handle in the future and by Handle i mean "Fuck up" and by question i mean "How will EA fuck up *Insert Upcoming game we know barely about*"

    To be fair, they usually find a way.

    Heh, yeah, I'm also familiar with the clip. That's when he reviewed that horrible Mike Myers movie--- Cat in the Hat, right? But pretty much correct, honestly. EA more than any other company in this industry seems to be the most coprorate driven, focus tested piece of shit out of them all. As such, it's time for them to either adapt and change, or perish. I really want to think that the way corporate business is so predominant is finally coming to an end (AT least in the VG industry.)

    EA has been like the Titanic for the past few years. Except instead of an iceberg, someone drilled a 5mm hole in the side. And no one has put any more effort into it other than throwing silly putty at the hole as it spews out ocean juice. Now, it looks like someone with some brains has seen the hole and jumped ship. Some other publishers have seen their own ships leaking and either fixed it or and least slowed the leaking down. We'll still have monstrosities like Activision and Ubisoft since they fix things good enough to stay afloat usually and have enough fanbois buying their stuff out of reflex. But it would be great to see games that aren't limited by corporate suits who say it won't sell.

    Yeah... Activision is very well known for fixing stuff, and not running them into the ground at all... CoughsGuitarHero&TonyHawk&WorldOfWarcraftCoughs. Heck, CoD: Ghosts is the first notable step of the CoD franchise finally starting to sink... And what does Activision do? Blame the next gen console transition and pretend it has nothing to do with the quality of the game itself :P Activision is the king of milking a franchise until it's way beyond death. They've just been extremely lucky to have found some pretty darn durable franchises.
