Why EA has been dethroned by Activision ...

11:33 PM on 08.15.2007 // William Haley

[Editor's note: This video contains a lot of profanity. If you're at work, take a pass on this one. -- Nick]
EA is a terrible company. They rape and pillage franchise after franchise and are basically a disease whose practices have lowered the standards of what passes for an acceptable retail game, much like rap and My Chemical Romance has ruined what is considered "music."
In the future, I imagine EA will just send you a box that has "Madden" hastily written on the side in Magic Marker, and a little midget will pop out and punch you in the nuts, then take your wallet. But of course, you won't even get to keep the midget because you will need to pay for a cheat code via Xbox Live that unlocks him somewhere in your neighborhood, and then you have to go look for him, which is going to be really hard because he's a freaking midget. 
To all you retarded mongoloids who buy Madden year after year, thank you for helping destroy the game industry and supporting companies like EA. This video is for you. <3

 From PSYK0MANT1S, the creator of the video:

Ok EA... I've been VERY QUIET for a long long time about the quality of your titles. I am quiet no more. Today I got off of work and there was nothing more i wanted to do but to play my new copy of John Madden 2008 Football on my xbox 360. Not even 2 games into my copy of Madden and glitches surface. Even your own in-game replay system helped me document this bullshit.

I'm sorry but I am not going to speak good of EA for the rest of my existance on this earth until I see some serious improvements in your quality standards. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count how many times I've been let down by Electronic Arts titles on PC, XBOX, XBOX360, PSX, and PS2. Let down you ask? Well let's talk about how EA needs to STOP releasing beta builds of their games. EA needs to STOP releasing a game that needs a patch the next day. EA needs to STOP letting us the consumer/gamer pay for a buggy product. EA needs to get their act together and get some REAL Quality Assurance going on.

Let me tell you something EA... My father said something to me a couple years before his death and I've never forgotten it. He said, "If you are not going to put your full ass into your work, then quit now. Spare me the trouble of finding it done half-ass so I can get on with my life."

I am posting this in hopes that I can alert the community of this injustice ONCE AGAIN committed by Electronics Arts to it's consumers. As gamers and consumers we need to stand up to our game makers and demand higher quality and assurance. My 60+ dollars today was spent only to be dissapointed...

 Amen brother.

I finally caved in to those sweet deals, got Shantae and The Pirate's Curse, Downwell and Super House of Dead Ninjas :)

I hope that Prototype runs better on my dad's old laptop than it does on my AMD gaming rig. Some badly coded games run like ass on AMD cards.

Please spare me from issues in the process of publishing my blog! Especially since I modified CSS to unnecessarily pseudo-crop an image, and make it so some images float next to text, and make it look decent on mobile. I'm a frickin' nerd, love it.

The night brims with defiled scum, and is permeated by their rotten stench. Just think, now you're all set to hunt and kill to your heart's content! #FashionBorne [img][/img]

Solar Pony Django avatarSolar Pony Django has got a mystery sale on T Shirts and Tank Tops atm, $5 for each. Only catch is they're random. But I've had some good luck, got a Captain Falcon one before, Zombies ate my Neighbors and a Persona 4 X Earthbound crossover.

I would really, really love if "publish now" could work without me having to post a blog multiple because the site is such a mess right now.

I got it all the way back in spring, but I still haven't finished Majoras Mask. Think I've done the first temple.. It's hard not knowing where to go. All those linear corridors and objective markers in games has made me dumb and impatient.

A weekend open forum posted every Friday night would be really cool, at least until we get real forums again.

Went snowboarding for the first time in years. Crashed a lot, many times into trees. All that training in FF7 didnt do squat!

If I were to get Age of Empires II HD to play with you all, do you all have the DLC?

I am relieved to know Creed is a Rocky spin-off and not a feature-length documentary about the band.

Been playing Gears of War 3's campaign on Xbox One. Looks great on there, and Sam's voice actor is Chloe's voice actor in Uncharted 2/3. Hell yeah!

Community Question: With all the controversy surrounding review scores, what do you personally consider a "bad" score versus a "good" score? Is there a game in particular that was panned by critics that you nevertheless enjoyed? Or vice versa?

Finally got around to playing Diablo 3 with some friends, holy smokes! That game is rad!

So... how long is it until we get the inevitable Colonial Marines or Ride to Hell: Retribution PS4/Xbox One re-releases?
