Blizzard merged with Activision, hence Ea's recent move.

get your filthy hands off the people who still know how to make good games EA.

if this happens, i can only see that they will be less resilient against censoring laws than take-two. infact if this happens we probably never will see manhunt 2 on the shelves.

on a side-note. everyone in the gaming world should put $5 together and buy EA. release the companys that its swallowed, and declare it shut down.

agreed. i would have rather had crysis sold to me at 100$ with a near perfect launch. along with flawlessness throughout the months..

instead there are bugs in the game still.

sound bug.
apc bug.
physics bugs

hackers.. and of course.. flaws in the maps...

If you really wan't to stop E.A. start killing babies and little children, because while they exist there will always be children (and idiots.....big idiots) who plead to their suger daddy to buy E.A.'s crappy Movie games, otherwise, I see no way that E.A. will be dieing anytime soon.

Meh with the exeption of Pro street which was crap, almost all recent EA games have been good!

On the contrary though i find GTA3/SA etc crap compared to GTA/2 so its a matter of taste

Stop entering my mind and stealing my thoughts!!!

I hope this doesn't happen; but most of all, I hope EA taking in Mythic doesn't ruin War Hammer Online....

If GTA or WHO become crappy games because of EA...I'm going...I'm going...to sit here and bit__ about it...

*sigh*
