    EA Has Scrapped Online Passes...!? Things You Hate About EA Thread...

    Yes, no more future titles will have it, and EA explicitly said it's because [FONT=Verdana, Tahoma, sans-serif]"players didn't respond to the format". Three things here. A) As if; I think it's cos they didn't get enough revenue from it. B) They're using this situation to give them more credit? C) At least they actually DO KNOW what we, the gaming community, feel about certain aspects of EA; they aren't delusional to their 'problems', I think. EA, back in the PS2 days, were absolutely fine, I have to admit.


    Well, EA, here is a bunch of other 'problems' I personally think you should amend:

    -Disc locked DLC
    -Microtransactions
    -Always online DRM
    -Origin, and it's current objective
    -Not putting your games on Steam
    -Turning franchises into generic third person shooters to "appeal to a wider audience"
    -Your influence on studios, once you acquire them
    -Having to sign in to an EA account just to play a demo
    -Buying up good studios and ruining them before shutting them down completely
    -Getting your studios to lie about how nothing will run on the Wii U, even though it runs on something just a bit weaker than the XBOX 360 and PS3's hardware... All because you're pissed off that Nintendo wouldn't let you put Origin on their console
    -Thinking that supporting gay rights (I do, obviously) makes up for doing all of the above and makes you the best company ever (it doesn't)


    Other things you hate about EA, or any other company? Personally, after how Ubisoft fucking fired the genius - and savior of the AC franchise - Patrice Desilets, Ubisoft is now my 2nd most hated company, SOLELY because of this. I mean, THE CREATOR OF THE SUBLIME ACII FFS. ACII's soundtrack, scenery, atmosphere, cities, landscapes, characters, lengthy and steadfast plot, beauty, pioneering qualities, combat, mechanics, lighting and impression... It was NEVER SEEN BEFORE. Give him another chance Ubisoft... LET 1666 become a possibility...?

    that I own this particular trophy (the Gran Turismo 5 Platinum), which is VERY rare. I got it with a DS3, and NOT with a steering wheel. I did it! Thus, I am your utter overlord:

    I can imagine this, especially with the rumored direction XBOX is going. Sony FTW (they "never thought" about always online)
